Oat and Apple Dog Pretzel Treats

Bad breath? There’s a treat for that. These good-for-Fido greenies by Health Starts in the Kitchen are packed with parsley, mint and activated charcoal to prevent those stinky smooches that every dog parent is familiar with. An added plus is that you can customize the size to make them giant for larger dogs or teenie for smaller pooches.
Carrot Peanut Butter Pupcakes
Puppies + cupcakes = pupcakes. These doggy desserts by Shweta Arora of Shweta in the Kitchen are exactly what you need to celebrate a special occasion, like Scout’s first birthday or Bella’s graduation from obedience school. Shweta’s secret tip is adding 1-2 tablespoons of honey to the frosting to make these party treats mildly sweet. Don’t forget the party hats!
