A Tribute To Peanut Butter

A Tribute To Peanut Butter

We have yet to meet a dog that doesn’t like peanut butter. It is the best way to sneak a pill into your dog’s mouth, and the taste will definitely make your dog love you even more. We want to share with you our favorite ways to give our beloved pets their favorite snack.

1. Kong

The Kong can be purchased at any pet store and is something every dog owner should have. The hole provides ample space for peanut butter and it not just a great treat, but also a great activity. Your dog will spend as much time as it takes to get every last bit of peanut butter out of the toy. A little peanut butter will go a long way!

2. Spoon

This is certainly the least fancy way to give your dog peanut butter, but arguably their favorite. Feeding your dog off a spoon will make him or her feel like royalty and have them licking their lips for minutes afterward. Make sure you feed your dog off of silverware because he or she may think the plastic spoon is a toy and cut their mouth.

3. Food

Do you ever feel bad that your dog eats the same food every meal, everyday? If you want to spice up their daily kibble, add a scoop of peanut butter to the bowl. That dry food will go faster than ever before and your dog will certainly be happy.

4. Homemade dog biscuits

If you are in the baking mood, this is one of the easiest biscuit recipes. These treats will look gourmet without the high price tag, and it is also fun to do with your children! All you need is 2 cups of flour, ½ cup of peanut butter, 2 eggs, and ¼ cup of water. Mixed together the flour, peanut butter, and eggs in a large bowl, and once it is slightly combined add a little bit of water (one tablespoon at a time). Once the mixture becomes thicker, roll it out as dough and use your favorite cookie cutters to make cookies. Throw them into the oven at 350 F for about 15 minutes, and tada, you have homemade biscuits!

However you choose to use peanut butter to reward your dog, make sure the peanut butter you choose does not contain Xylitol. Xylitol is a sugar substitute that can be deadly to dogs. Most peanut butters do not contain Xylitol, but double check to make sure. And if you have any other fun ways to use peanut butter, feel free to share them with us too!
