Hi there pet lovers – Bella here! No matter what your relationship status is, your pup is always there to be your loyal Valentine.
There will be tons of sweet treats lying around this weekend, so please keep your pets’ safety in mind. You probably know that chocolate is bad for dogs – it can cause abnormally high heart rhythms – but did you know that baking chocolate is extra toxic? Whether you’re in the kitchen whipping up cupcakes for the kids, or bringing home hand-dipped chocolate covered strawberries from your local ShopRite, be sure any people treats are out of your dogs’ reach!
But not to pout, you can still spoil your fur babies with drool-worthy Valentine’s treats. Try this quick & easy Dog-Tested, Pet Parent-Approved peanut butter dog treats recipe, made with ingredients you may already have in your pantry.
