At this festive time of year, there are lots of things to keep out of your pet’s reach ~ chocolate, caffeine, onion, garlic, grapes, raisins, bread dough, tinsel, ribbons, garlands, ornaments, electric cords, candles, poinsettia, holly, ivy, mistletoe, and xylitol (a sweetener in gum and candies).

Here’s a treat that good for dogs to eat . . .   

Peanut Butter & Pumpkin Puppy Dog Treats

Pluto-Happy1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1 egg
1/4 cup water
2 Tbsp. honey
2 cups whole wheat flour

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Combine first 5 ingredients. Stir well. Add flour and beat with an electric mixer until dough forms. Roll dough out on a floured surface to 1/4 inch thickness.

Cut dough into biscuits using a 2-inch cookie cutter. Transfer to parchment paper lined baking sheet(s).

Bake 45-60 minutes until biscuits are crisp and golden brown. Turn oven off. Leave biscuits in oven to dry overnight.

Makes 4-5 dozen dog treats.

Woof . . . that’s better!
