For my dog’s (Winston) eighth birthday, I whipped up these easy peanut butter dog treats. They are so easy to make and your dog will love them.
These only have peanut butter and whole wheat flour, so they are great for dogs with sensitive stomachs.
The technique used is similar to making pie dough. The peanut butter acts as the fat/oil. You will mix the peanut butter into the flour until crumbly. Then add tablespoons of ice water until a soft dough forms. Roll thinly and cut into desired shapes.
