Collard Clusters Natural Dog Treat Recipe
Collard Green Clusters Dog Treat Recipe - What, you've never baked with greens? Well, I hadn't either until these tasty morsels. A little prep work and they make the cutest little clusters any dog could want.
Collard greens are full of vitamins, minerals and anticancer properties. After you give all these nutrients to your dog, you may want to add collard greens to your meal plan, too.
This treat is wheat and grain free. Plus, there's a good amount of flax seed to boost it's health value even more.
Preparing the greens couldn't be easier. Rinse each leaf, fold in half and cut out the rib.
Then lay all of the rib-less leaves together and cut into strips.
Next, cut those strips into small pieces about 1/2 inch or smaller.

Go Green with Your Dog
The new dog treat recipe of the month has inspired us to take a look at making all of our dogs surroundings a little more green. :)
Here are some fun and innovative ways to be Eco-friendly with your dog:
Biodegradable Poop Bags - You pick up #2 every day. Why not use a earth friendly bag that will disintegrate over time?
Dog Waste Composter - This is an awesome way to turn your dog's poo into beautiful roses!
Natural Dog Shampoo - Shampoo and other dog grooming products will help your dog smell great and look good. Plus, who needs all those chemicals snuggled up next to you in bed?
Stainless Steel Bowls - This was news to us, but did you know that many plastic dog bowls contain dangerous chemicals? Even the ceramic dog bowls can contain lead. It may be time to upgrade your dogs everyday food and water bowls to a stainless steel or a lead-free ceramic bowl.
Natural Cleaning Supplies - If you only do one green thing for your dog this year, make it a complete switch to natural and healthful cleaning supplies. It will improve the air quality and safety of your home for you, your dog and anyone else who's fortunate enough to be a part of your family.
This list could go on and on. You can choose sustainable hemp collars and leashes. Even choose from an ever growing availability of recycled material dog toys and dog beds. Enjoy the journey of making your dog a green dog.

I started baking your peanut butter dog treats and took some samples to work and now I have 3 very loyal customers who rave about them. One of my customers has a standing order for two bags of treats every two weeks! I love making these as the recipe is so quick and easy and my two dogs will wait by the oven when they're baking to try one!"
"My dog and I love your peanut butter and oats bone recipe. I made a bunch in Christmas shapes to give to friends."
