The Peanut Butter Puppenheimer - The Perfect Dog Treat

Marc J. Sievers

There is nothing I love better than spoiling our little pup Lady von Puppenheimer with kisses, toys, and her favorite homemade dog treat – The Peanut Butter Puppenheimer!  After spending years owning a luxury pet boutique and portrait studio, where I would cater to my four-legged clients (and their owners!), I never did find a softer dog treat that could easily be broken in little pieces for small dogs.

So, I was determined to create the solution myself in my own kitchen and started developing and testing dog treats.  I make these treats with 100% organic human-grade ingredients to ensure there are as healthy and delicious as can be.  In fact, as they bake, they smell so good you’d swear they were a treat for yourself!  These make a wonderful host/ess gift for fellow dog lovers – just stack a few in a glycine bag and tie with a colorful ribbon.  Just remember to let the recipient know they are for little Fido!
