Before You Start Making New Recipes

Always keep food safety in mind when preparing your furry friend a snack. Read food labels carefully to ensure the ingredients are safe for dogs, avoiding artificial sweeteners like xylitol and other items that are harmful to four-legged friends. Fully remove pits and seeds from fruits and vegetables, as they may be toxic or pose choking hazards. Ensure you chop produce into pieces that are small enough for your dog to swallow.

Additionally, dogs who are lactose intolerant should not have whipped cream or yogurt unless they are marked "lactose free" and do not contain harmful ingredients. If you are not sure about your dog's sensitivities, consult your veterinarian.

Once you ensure all ingredients are safe to eat, grab a treat toy and get started!
