We have two dogs and we made these dog bisquits for them and they went crazy while we were baking them.
They look just like the dog bisquits from the store, but they must taste much better because we kept them in a plastic container on top of the fridge and the dogs didn't want their store bought bisquits anymore.
Plus they are much healthier for your dogs since they don't have the sugar and salt in them.
The recipe follows.  You may want to double or triple it, because your dogs will want lots of these.
Basic Recipe for Milk Bones or Dog Treats
1/2 c  margarine or butter          3/4 c hot chicken broth                 
3  c  whole wheat flour                1  beaten egg
1 c cornmeal                                 1/2 c  dried milk powder
Using a large bowl, pour the hot chicken broth over the margarine. Pour in beaten egg and powdered milk and stir.
Now add cornmeal and flour 1/2 cup at a time and stir. Continue stirring until all of the flour and cornmeal has been added and everything is mixed well
Knead the mixture adding more flour if need to make a very stiff dough.
Roll out until the dough is about 1/2" think. Cut with small cookie cutters.
Bake on a greased sheet at 325 degrees for about 50 minutes. (Ours were finished much earlier than this, but we rolled them out thinner and cut into small pieces for snacks)
When the bisquits are finished baking, return them to the oven to dry out more overnight.
Store in an airtight container.
