Making your dog some delicious homemade peanut butter dog treats is a great way to show him some love.
Natural peanut butter is a super-food in it's own right and each spoonful packs a powerful nutritional punch.
This nut butter is nutrient-dense because it's jam-packed full of healthy ingredients. It's a fantastic source of healthy fats, protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals.
Another wonderful quality of peanut butter is how versatile it is when used in homemade dog treat recipes. You can combine it with a whole host of other ingredients to create an almost limitless variety of goodies that are sweet, savory, soft, crunchy, frozen.... the list just goes on and on.
I only use natural, organic ingredients in my recipes and the peanut butter I use contains nothing but peanuts.
Of course, there are tons of different brands of peanut butter on the grocery store shelves but did you know that it's essential to check the ingredients label on any peanut butter you use for your dogs treats because some brands contain an artificial sugar substitute called Xylitol which is life-threateningly toxic for dogs.
Dog treat recipes with peanut butter as an ingredient are pretty much guaranteed to be a hit with any dog and I'm confident the recipes on this page will be favorites in your house in no time at all.
Every single one of them has been taste-tested by my dog Ivan and meets with his approval (which means they're wiggle-worthy!)
My German Shepherd, Dax, is the only dog I've ever know who isn't a fan of this delicious, nutritious nut butter but Ivan is totally happy with having sole responsibility for this task.
I hope you enjoy trying these recipes and that your dog enjoys eating the amazing treats you create. Have fun!
