Dog Treat Recipe of the Month:

Fall beckons us to turn on the oven and pull out our favorite traditional recipes.

This year, start a new tradition of baking these easy to make gingerbread dog bones.

This Gingerbread Dog Biscuits Recipe can be made into any shape you want using dog cookie cutters. We chose the classic bone and gingerbread man shape to show you just how adorable these little biscuits can be.

Your dog won't miss the sugar in these treats as the ginger, cinnamon and cloves makes it a spicy and delicious treat.

You can use this recipe to make a Gingerbread Dog House. The only adjustments you need to make is to bake the cut outs (depending on their size) a minimum of 10 minutes longer. Since each dog house can be a different size, check the treats as they bake. You want a very dry and hard "cookie" to be able to put your house together.

To decorate your gingerbread cookies, or if you're building a house, use this sugar free yogurt icing, instead of a traditional royal icing recipe that is made up of mostly sugar. That way your dog can enjoy eating all the fruits of your labor.

Then follow the instructions of building a "regular" gingerbread house, but make it a special one just for your dog.

Do you look forward to the cooler months so you can bake? Do you love making homemade dog treats for your dog? Are you starting to be known and loved by the dogs of your families and friends? Then you may want to consider starting a dog treat business. To help you get started, read my book review about how to start your own dog bakery business. It's fun, exciting and not as complicated as you may think! :)

Fight the Winter Blues with Toys

It's chilly, windy and rainy ... you look at your dog, she looks at you ... and you both go jump back into bed instead of taking that morning walk.

But later in the day, your dog will have all that pent up energy that needs to be released in a healthy constructive way.

That's where new fun toys come into the picture. Even one new toy can help keep your dogs brain and body active, keep her out of trouble and set your mind at ease.
