This is Scout, he turned 2 yesterday. Scout is half Australian Cattle Dog, Half Black Lab, 100% hyper and spoiled. He’s my brother’s dog, but I’m pretty sure he likes me better, especially after I made him Peanut Butter Dog Treats for this birthday.
The treats are super simple to make, only 4 ingredients: whole wheat flour, baking powder, peanut butter, and milk (if your dog is allergic to milk you could use water or oil). I found this recipe about a year ago but I have no recollection of where it’s from and a google search provided me with nothing, I guess that’s what I get for not writing down the source with the recipe. Anyway, you just combine all the ingredients (I mixed them by hand).
Roll them out and cut into desired shapes. I found the nifty dog bone shaped cookie cutter at a kitchen supply store, but I’ve made them with regular cookie cutters before, Scout didn’t seem to notice a difference.
Then pop them in the oven to bake.
Let them cool and share them with your favorite pup!
