Looking for a free but tasty dog cookie recipe? My dog Luigi loves cheese! This easy cheesy cookie is one of his favourite homemade treats. Made allergy free just for him!

Dog Cookie Recipe - Dog cookies on tray

This cookie recipe is a nice simple one with only a few ingredients. If you use pre-grated cheese, then it only takes a few moments to put together a tasty treat for your dog.

To make this recipe wheat free, I used rice flour instead of plain, all purpose flour.

The recipe sometimes makes a slightly crumbly dough, so just add a little more water if you need it.

What do these symbols mean?


  • 2 cups of rice flour (or all purpose plain flour if your dog is allergy free).
  • 1 and 1/4 cups of cheddar cheese grated.
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable or olive oil.
  • 7-9 tablespoons of water.


How to make the dog treats

Turn oven on at 180/325 degrees.

    1. Mix all but the water until it forms a dough.
    2. Add the water tablespoon by tablespoon if needed, until the dough has a good texture.
    3. Roll out onto a floured board until it is the thickness of about 1 inch, then cut shapes with cookie cutters or a knife.
    4. Put in oven on a non-stick baking tray and bake for 15 minutes.
    5. Leave them to cook and see what your dog thinks!

Let the cookies cool completely before storing in an airtight tin.

These cookies make a nice treat to use for training – or just to let your dog know you love it!

If your dog loves the basic recipe, try a few variations. You could try different types of cheese (Parmesan is good), or add some cubes of vegetable or meat.

    • Yes, as long as your dog isn’t intolerant of gluten. You might need to experiment with the quantities a bit – I think oat flour would need more liquid.
      Hope that helps.

  1. I made them with oat flour about 1/4 of an inch, they didn’t cook all the way through after 25min, I bumped up the oven to 350 for another 10 minutes, that did the trick.

  2. Hi there,
    Thanks for sharing these lovely recepies. For sure I will try them for my dogs:) one question though(I am celiac) and I’ve been advised by my dietician not to use ready grated cheese as it is sprinkled with flour in order for it not to stick togheter,so I think is better not to use ready greated cheese if the recipe is gluten free.

  3. I have made these Cheesy Chunk Treats for all 6 of our family dogs each Christmas for a few years. Two of the six dogs have allergies so I found this recipe from you. I use rice flour and cheddar cheese. They all love these cookies and I am preparing to make another batch this week! I use mini to medium cookie cutters in simple shapes and they come out great! I want to add chicken stock this year. Fun!
    Thanks for the great ideas!
