I love knowing that my dogs treats are made with human grade ingredients.

Making homemade dog treats allows me to control what’s in the treats. I can choose to use ingredients that are healthy, and not loaded with salt, sugars or preservatives.

If you decide to make these soft peanut butter dog cookies, make sure your peanut butter does not contain xylitol. This is toxic for your dog.

I like to use peanut butter that contains only nuts and salt.

These dog cookies are best when enjoyed within a day our two. If you can’t use them up that quickly or if you want to double the recipe, you can freeze them.

Remember: When giving your pet any new food, start slowly and watch for negative reactions. If in doubt about any recipe or ingredients, consult your vet.
