Begging doggy eyes are something we all know too well. During the holidays, with all the sweets, biscuits and cookies around the house it gets hard for pet tutors to ignore them. As you know, you shouldn’t give them sweets, not to mention chocolate, because it’s dangerous for them. But what can you do, if you want your dog’s holiday season to be as rewarding as yours? We’ve collected 4 easy, delicious, dog-friendly Christmas-inspired recipes, so you can make their holiday taste even better.
1. Stacked Star Christmas Tree Dog Treats
We are already busy getting ready for Christmas and what else could we do rather than collect our favorite recipes? The Stacked Star Christmas Tree Dog Treats are a must – and one that we are going to try for sure! The best thing about baking the treat yourself, is that you know exactly what’s in it. For this cookie, all you need is a rollable dog treat dough, Carob drops, Peanut Butter and/or Coconut oil.
Do you have them all at home? Then go and try it out! Here you can find the recipe: http://dalmatiandiy.blogspot.pt/2016/12/recipe-stacked-star-christmas-tree-dog.html
2. Apple crunch pupcakes
Less than an hour and these pupcakes will make your pup love you more than ever! If you’re a perfectionist cook, you can go on a quick discovery tour and search for bone-shaped cupcake cups in kitchen equipment stores, but if you don’t find them, you can still make regular-shaped muffins! If you check this recipe out, this is something anyone could eat, it’s all natural ingredients!

3. Mix and match
If you are the creative cook type, who loves to test, but doesn’t like to spend too much time in the kitchen, or if your pantry is out of ingredients, try these recipes! You only need 2 ingredients!
- 2 cups 100% organic whole wheat flour/wheat germ/ spelt/ rolled oats
- 2 (4oz) jars of pureed baby food (beef, blueberry, sweet potato, chicken, etc.)
What you need to do is:
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Mix ingredients together to form a stiff dough. If necessary, add extra flour or water as needed.
- On a lightly floured surface, roll dough out evenly until it’s about 1/4 inch thick. Use cookie cutters to cut into desired shape or a pizza cutter to make cubes.
- Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, place treats about 1/2 inch apart. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes.
- Allow to cool completely before storing in a paper bag (storing in an air-tight container will make them soft, but they’re still edible).
You will love this as much as your dog! Just think about it: your dog will never get tired of the flavor, since you can always add new ingredients, like bananas, potatoes and even parsley!
There’s no Christmas without gingerbread – with this recipe you can use it for your four-legged buddies too! Did you know that ginger is not just good for us, humans, but for dogs as well? Ginger has amazing properties like helping with motion sickness, nausea, pain and having antimicrobial properties.
