PB Bones

If you're looking to spoil your pooch or make treats to entice it to perform tricks, these tasty goodies will work.

To make this simple snack, preheat your oven to 350 degrees, then combine 2 tbsp. of oil with 1 cup of water and cup of all-natural or organic peanut butter. Using organic is essential, as it won't contain the amount of sodium or preservatives as a typical product. Now add 1- cups each of whole wheat and white flour, one cup at a time and stirring after each addition. The mixture should start to resemble dough.

Now knead the dough with your hands until you can form it into a ball. Then, roll the dough out to about -inch thickness. Use a knife to cut out three or four bones. If you're not into bones, you can create whatever shape you or your dog like. Place the shapes on an ungreased cookie sheet and allow them to cook for about 20 minutes in your pre-heated oven.

Let them cool. Use these tasty snacks to motivate and reward - or for just being so darn cute.



PB&Pumpkin Treats

Who says dogs don't have refined pallets that enjoy variety? Veterinarians will tell you that canines taste and discriminate when it comes to their food. This tasty and healthy snack is filled with yummy ingredients, including pumpkin which is rich in vitamins.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Whisk together 2- cups of whole wheat flour, two eggs, cup of canned pumpkin, 2 tbsp. of peanut butter and tsp. each of ground cinnamon and salt.

Stir together until all the ingredients are incorporated and add water as needed to make the dough manageable; however, the dough should be dry and stiff. Roll the dough into a 1/2-inch thick roll, then cut -inch thick slices.

Place the rolls on an ungreased cookie sheet or silicone mat and bake them for about 40 minutes or until they are hard. Not only is the pumpkin a tasty addition to the treats, but it may also help with canine digestion issues. Your pooch is sure to love the different flavors these biscuits feature.

Knead the dough with your hands until all of the ingredients are well blended and the dough has come together. Then use a rolling pin to roll the mixture out until it is about 1/4-inch thick. Now here is the fun part use your favorite cookie cutters to cut out the cookies. You can make all the shapes animal related, or make them into creatures that your furry friend obsesses over, such as squirrels or cats.
