National Dog Biscuit Day: Recipes for Center West Pets

February 23rd is National Dog Biscuit Day! As a pet-friendly apartment community in Midlothian, Center West is happy to please our pet residents. Celebrate your dog and this special holiday by making them some homemade dog treats! While you could certainly buy treats at the store, making them at home will be much more fun, and your dog will love them! Check out these recipes that your furry friend will devour.

Pumpkin and Peanut Butter Dog Treats

It’s no secret that many people love all things pumpkin — from pumpkin pie to pumpkin spice lattes. Who says your furry friend can’t take part in the obsession with pumpkin-flavored things too? Your pup will love these pumpkin and peanut butter frozen dog treats by House Fur. Not only are they easy to make, but you’ll also be filling your furry friend with nutrients. Pumpkin is full of prebiotics, fiber, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids.

Minty Fresh Breath Dog Treats

Does your pup have stinky breath? Freshen it up with these Minty Fresh Breath Dog Treats by The Produce Moms. Mint, apple, parsley, coconut oil, and plain Greek yogurt come together to make these minty treats. The mint and parsley will help freshen breath, and the coconut oil can stop bacteria from developing and spreading in your dog’s mouth. Keep in mind, mint must be given in moderation. Do not feed your dog English/European pennyroyal mint because it is toxic.
