There will be a brief posting break next week (Easter and ANZAC Day) from our usual weekly Monday posting cycle. We'll still be around on social media, and doing behind-the-scenes site work here on the blog. :) See you soon!

Doggone Great Carob "Chocolate" Easter Dog Treat Ideas

Happy almost Easter, furfriends! Today we have two simple no-bake Easter treat ideas using carob to create a dog-friendly version of Easter chocolates. There are lots of ways to create carob treats for your pet, from baked treats to frozen pupsicles and everything in between, but these two are quick, simple, healthy, and you can use then to mold fun festive shapes too!  All of the looks of a fancy treat, but actually easy peasy in the kitchen.

{RECIPE} Stained Glass Yogurt Gummy Easter Dog Treats


Anyone else remember stained glass Jell-o jigglers from childhood? Here's my dogified version made with yummy yogurt, healthy gelatin, and colourful add-ins. Because I simply can't resist doing these crazy things. Haha!  The dogs totally don't care about the colours, but they do love gummies!

{RECIPE} Dehydrated Cottage Cheese Dog Treats / Toppers


This simple treat idea can be as basic as a single-ingredient or as fancy as you'd like with optional add-in ingredients. Our dogs LOVE cottage cheese and it's a nutritious lower purine goody (see our notes at the end of the post on purines) that I happily share by the spoonful or let them help clean out the empty container. Unfortunately, it's something that's often quite expensive here and has a short fridge life. So how to take advantage of those sales? Hmmm. Freezing is one way to extend the storage, but after experimenting with the dehydrator, crunchy little nuggets of dehydrated cottage cheese have fast become a doggy favourite! Humans might enjoy them as well. :)
