Who said that you can’t bake goodies for your doggies? Well they are totally wrong because you totally can. You just have to make sure that you use ingredients that are suitable for your doggies.

Baking treats for them it’s definitely better than buying treats that you have no idea where some ingredients are coming from. Making treats from scratch gives you control over what you put in your recipe and you can even hide vitamins and nutrients that they need.

This recipe is great to celebrate your doggies birthday or for an occasional treat. They are filled with nutrients and topped with peanut butter.

Every time I open the peanut butter jar all my doggies are by my side in seconds. They ate crazy about peanut butter!

Olivia couldn’t resist

I made these pupcakes to celebrate our new puppy Frida. She was a stray dog in Puerto Rico and we’re so happy that we were able to bring her home.

If you’re thinking about adding a new dog to your family, please consider going to your local shelter and save a life. It’s the most rewarding feeling.

    1. They are good for about a week inside an airtight container! You can keep them in the refrigerator for two weeks but my babies eat them super fast!! Thank you so much 😊

    Hello! Love these treats! I am wondering how you store them since they have a cream cheese frosting? Do you put in fridge or consume right away? Thanks so much!

    1. Hi! I put them in the refrigerator for about one week. Usually they don’t last long because I have 4 dogs. I also make a batch without the frosting and store them in a jar. These are their favorite treats. Thank you so much!
