I have the tendency to be dramatic (see pic below) but I am NOT overselling it when I say this is my most popular and most requested recipe. Should I be offended it’s for dogs and not people? Probably shouldn’t read into that one too much…

While I do not have a dog, unless you count my brass statue and best buddy Winston (which I’ve been told 100% does not count and I should stop saying that), many people I love do have dogs! So I felt it was my duty to be the best doggo aunt I could and develop a healthy, natural treat recipe just for them.

Everybody meet Winston…yes this was during COVID lockdown…yes I was bored.

I did run this by vets and did a lot of research so everything is safe for your dog! I highly recommend freezing them, not only to make them keep longer, but I’ve been told dogs really like licking them to defrost them and it makes the treat last longer.

Even my friend’s pickiest dogs go nuts for these! We did a little test to see which treat they’d go for and the PBB biscuits won out each and every time. I hope you enjoy making them for your doggo! Even better, if you have a picture of your dog with the treats please do drop it in the comment!
