Alton Brown Makes Dog Treats That Taste Like Cat Poop [video]
Food Network Gossip ^ | May 1, 2014

Posted on 05/03/2014 12:07:34 PM PDT by Slings and Arrows

In Alton Brown's latest video of his web series Cook Smart, he shares a recipe for dog treats meant to mimic the taste of cat poop.

-snip-

The trick to making them stinky is fish sauce.  Hopefully not too many people are making homemade treats for their dog, but if you are, here is the recipe.  Or you could just take a short cut and add fish sauce to store bought treats.

AB is the best. If I ever want a go to recipe for anything, I first check for one from him. He’s just better than the rest.

OR you could make friends with some cat owners and offer to clean out their litter boxes! Why would you go for artificial cat poop when the reason thing is available? Your dogs would love you even more.:)

My dogs prefer rabbit poop and they can find in right in our back yard.

My late JRT loved the litterbox snackbar. The fact that she had to dig for her treats was an enjoyable bonus.

[I did not endorse this behavior, but I also couldn’t do a whole lot about it.]

On a related note...there is a company that makes a product that makes excrement taste bad. What a country!

I make my dogs home made treats after having a bad experience with Mothers Hubbard ones. Pretty easy to make and just 12 minutes @350 in the oven- then turn oven off and crack the door open a bit with a wooden spoon and let them sit in there until the oven is cool. That way they get crunchy.I use ground oatmeal, honey, crunchy peanut butter, a little whole milk, some bacon fat and a little unbleached flour for one flavor and then switch out the PB and honey ingredients and replace with cheddar cheese and a little garlic powder for another type. I keep them in the fridge. My dogs love them and I feel better knowing what’s in them for the most part.

Easy! He asked these guys to taste test it for him.

That, or he just licked Justin Bieber.

I had this problem with my dogs and solved it. The automatic litter box is in the guest john on the main floor of my house. I keep the cat’s food and water there too. To solve the problem and give the kitty privacy from my two large dogs (85 lb. & 110 lb.), I put a small screw in the side of the door frame and left about 1/2 inch, including the head, protruding. Then I attached a fairly heavy string with a loop in the end to the door knob. The string is about 6 in. long, enough to let the cat in, but not the dogs, when the loop is placed over the protruding end of the screw. Problems of feline privacy and canine poop eating solved.

Back a few years ago, when I had cats, I had a small litter box room with a kitty door that the dogs didn't enter. They were JRT’s and probably could have gotten through it, but they didn't.

The JRT crew I have now are not familiar with cats or cat poop. We haven’t had a cat in many years.

Write to him c/o Food Network? Or via the Food Network magazine? The magazine has a monthly column in which you ask your favorite chef a question and they will answer it.

I can tell you personally, I’ve been to a taping of one of their shows and they are really nice.

Oh, I guess you could always tweet him

Our dogs will eat about anything. If I set the cat litter box down outside; they’ll find it and be right in it fishing out all the best poop piles. Today, they went down to the river with my husband and rolled in poop; rolled in what was left that they didn’t eat, that is. - I mean, why should I make dog treats that taste “like” cat poop when they eat the real thing anytime they can find it - also squirrel poop, bird poop, and any other kind of animal poop they can find. Disgusting; but natural I suppose.

Unless he can make it in the form of a “litter box” cake, this is a useless accomplishment.

“And yet we love them.”

Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!! :o) - Mine have driven me round the bend; do you want to two (huge) mutts and the crazy little kitty kat we have? - Answer quickly; I’m losing it worser every minute! - and I’m so nutty, we’ll probably acquire another stray off the side of the road while we’re out today. - The cat sleeps at the foot of our bed every night (and I’m thinking she’s plotting our demise if we don’t feed her just what she wants!) Hey! A cat can get along nicely without us. When we talk, all they hear is . . . silence. Dogs, they hear blah . blah . . blah . . blah . . Rover . . blah . . blah; at least dogs hear SOMETHING! But, still they eat POOP! Like we don’t spend an arm and a leg for decent food and dog biskits and rawhides for them.
