I made these a few years ago for a friend with a dog and he said his dog loved them. My wife and I just rescued a chocolate lab (his name is Porter), so I will be making some today after I am done brewing.

I make these every brew day but tweaked the recipe to require less ingredients. 4c grain, 1c flour and 1 egg. Dogs go crazy for em like this, so why waste pb?

I got a question on this . the hull of barley is not digestible for humans because it is so hard. Is it safe for a dog to eat this hull ? Could it cut up his intestines . Horses can digest it . Another point is that dogs have no use for grains and they are quite bad for your dog . since most of the starches have been converted into sugar in ours then this is less damaging than un mashed grains but still not good for them .
As a small treat probably not bad . but not too much
Check out this before feeding your dog too many grains . http://www.k911.biz/Petsafety/DogFoodNutrition.htm

Of course, he also loves deer poop, so I don't think he's very discriminating.
My dog likes poop too. Nasty!

yep. I was wondering about that . I know when I was buying some barley to eat , pearled , I read some things that said humans could not digest hulls . I found out the real problem was that humans can not stand the feel of chewing them tough puppies up after I tried a some .
Now I have about 9 pounds of pearled barley that I really do not care much for eating as it takes too long to cook . I am thinking about using it in some beer . But not sure how much to use since it is pearled and not roasted or anything .
Maybe I will just use it to make dog treats .

i'd worry about long-term storage - you'd probably need to keep those in the fridge, even if you dried the crap outta them.

your dog(s) will love you for those cookies, tho!
