What is a good dog biscuit recipe that does not require refrigeration?

Our volunteer service group is baking dog biscuits to sell as a fundraiser for local animal shelters. The dog biscuits will be wrapped in cellophane and must be able to be stored at room temperature for a couple of weeks. What are some good recipes? If we make them with bacon grease or homemade chicken stock, will they need refrigeration?

2 – Eggs
10 tb – bacon fat or vegetable oil
1 pinch – garlic powder
1 ts – Salt
1/2 cup – Cold water

Mix all ingredients well. Pinch off pieces of the dough and roll them into 2 cm balls.
Put them on a greased tray.
Bake them at 175 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes.
Let them cool, then store in an airtight container.
