Forget the Milk Bone! Dog treats can be just as decorative as "people treats." You just have to make sure that you use dog-friendly ingredients (remember, chocolate is a big no-no for dogs). Here is a list of some ingredients used for the treats at Three Dog Bakery.
- Peanut Butter - Be sure to use 100 percent all-natural, from real peanuts.
- Carob - For dogs with a sweet-tooth, carob is the safe alternative to chocolate.
- Honey - It's a delicious all-natural sweetener that is safe for dogs.
- Vanilla - It adds a little something special to a dog treat's flavor.
