I used my handy little cookie stamps to decorate these treats. It couldn't be easier to do and adds that extra little homemade touch.

My Home-X cookie stamps only cost a few dollars from Amazon and they're the perfect size for dog treats. They simply snap together to make any combination of letters or letters/numbers I want. 

Add your dog's name, a phrase, his age or anything you want depending on the size of the treats!
