Instead of going to the store and getting your dog questionable treats filled with preservatives and unpronounceable ingredients, why not bake a better dog cookie for your furry friend?
When you bake dog cookies, you know the ingredients are healthy and safe. If you feel really ambitious, also can use your slow-cooker to make all of your dog’s food.
Baking your own treats also allows you to control portions. You can make as many or as few as you want. Bake a few to keep them fresh.
Or you can double, triple or quadruple the recipe and freeze the leftovers.
Use this simple five-ingredient recipe courtesy of Emotional Pet Support to whip up a batch in a little under 30 minutes.
Just be sure to read the ingredients on the peanut butter label — don’t buy a brand that uses Xylitol, also known as birch sugar, a sweetener that can fatal for dogs.
