Remember to double check that your peanut butter does NOT contain Xylitol. This sweetener is toxic to dogs. Peanut butter doesn't need to contain anything other than peanuts!

Why Choose Peanut Butter for Dog Treats?

Peanut butter is a great source of nutrients including protein, healthy fats, B vitamins, vitamin E, zinc, magnesium and more. It's a super-food in it's own right.

Then there's the fact that ninety-nine percent of dogs LOVE peanut butter, which makes it the perfect ingredient to add taste your dog will love.

Peanut butter is also hugely versatile and can be combined with just about any other ingredients. Chunky or smooth peanut butter, or peanut butter powder, can be used in a wide range of recipes including frozen dog treats, pupcakes, crunchy treats and more.
