Given in moderation, it’s a tasty treat to surprise your dog and reward good behavior or praise for learning a new trick. Find yourself bored with offering a lick of peanut butter off your finger or stuffed in a Kong? Try mixing things up a bit by adding peanut butter to home-made dog treats and desserts. Check out these drool-inducing recipes and you just might get two paws up from your pup after his or her first bite!

As with all treats, moderation is key! Dogs are pros at working the magic on their pet parents with those sweet eyes and kisses, but don’t let them indulge in too many.
