Which peanut butter is safe for dogs?
The good news is that regular peanut butter is safe to give your dog as a treat. Just make sure to avoid peanut butter with Xylitol, a sugar substitute found in lower or sugar-free products. Xylitol is the only ingredient in peanut butter that’s bad for dogs.
Is it OK to give dog peanut butter everyday?
Dogs can indeed eat peanut butter, but make it an occasional treat, not a daily habit. Nut butters like peanut butter and almond butter are a popular treat for dogs, especially for those times when you need a little something extra enticing.1
What you need
- 300g flour (any flour)

You want to start by mixing all the ingredients together in a bowl until you get a pastry-like consistency (add more flour to stiffen).
Next, flour your work surface then roll out the mixture to about 1cm thick. Then use your biscuit cutter to cut out your shapes. You can pick up a dog bone shape cutter – but festive stars and trees would also be great!
Place the biscuits on a baking tray with greaseproof paper and bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees for 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, when the biscuits are golden brown, take them out of the oven and leave them to cool.
Put the biscuits into a jar (upcycle an old pickle jar or something similar) and consider decorating the jar to give it a festive spirit.
Festive foods to avoid for cats and dogs
The festive season motto is “eat, drink and be merry”, so naturally Christmas food is always one of the highlights of this time of year. While we humans are indulging in everything from chocolate coins to mince pies, there are lots of treats that are actually toxic to both cats and dogs. While it’s tempting to save a bit of Christmas dinner and festive treats to give our furry friends, you need to make sure you’re aware of which foods pets can’t eat.
