Looking for a special treat to give the dog-lover on your list? These homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treats are always a hit! My dog is always excited to have a treat and these cookies are a treat I feel good about feeding her. Packed with natural peanut butter, whole wheat flour, and wheat germ, my dog begs for them.
These homemade Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits are easy to make and the kiddos have fun cutting out circles and adding “paw” fingerprints to the tops of each biscuit – no special cookie cutters required. Then it’s just a quick trip into the oven to bake them up golden brown and delicious.
Our dog, Belle, can’t resist these dog treats! Of course, when feeding your fur babies human food, always remember that there are certain foods you should not feed your pets. Leo at Cyberpet.com has published a helpful guide on what is not safe to feed your pets.
