Due to our dogs teeth, how do you make dog treats soft?

What ingredient would I use to make soft dog treats? Our dog is older and has a lot of missing teeth and can only have soft treats. Is there an ingredient I use when I make treats to make them/stay soft?

Chef's Answer ~ You have a couple options to make soft dog treats. The first is for treats that you roll out and cut with cookie cutters. You will want to bake those for less time. Start with half the cooking time, and then check for doneness and texture for your dog.

Another option is to bake primarily dog muffins, cupcakes and dog cakes. These are meant to be soft, so you would not need to change most recipes. Depending on the size of your dog, you could use a regular muffin tin, or a mini muffin tin.

I hope that helps your dog get the treats she needs and wants. :)

Happy Dog Treat Baking! :)
