Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll dough to a ¼ inch thickness and use any cookie cutter to cut out shapes. Bake for 15 minutes on a greased baking sheet or until lightly brown. Cool on a rack and store in a airtight container. These cookies are very yum for puppies but they do burn easily so keep a eye on the oven! Make these cookies for your dog with the holidays so your furry friend will have a delicious Christmas as well!
When it comes to food you don't have to buy the most expensive dog food available. In fact, providing balanced and nutritious food can be very cheap if you use natural ingredients and prepare them yourself. Just think about it: why should we feed our pets canned and processed food when we as humans are trying to avoid these ourselves? When chosing natural ingredients just bare in mind that the following items are toxic and should never be given to a dog: grapes and raisins, chocolate, sugar and sweets, caffeinated products, macadamia nuts, yeast dough, alcohol, fruit pips and seeds and moldy and rotten foods of all kinds.
