The benefits of peanut butter for dogs

Hey there, fellow pooch lovers! If you've ever wondered about adding a little twist to your furry friend's mealtime, then let's talk about a scrumptious treat that's not just for humans – peanut butter! That's right, that gooey, nutty spread can be an exciting and enjoyable addition to your dog's diet, but let's dive into the whys and hows to make sure it's all tail wags and happy barks.

Paws-itive Perks of Peanut Butter:

  1. Healthy Fats & Protein: Peanut butter packs a punch when it comes to healthy fats and protein, just what your canine companion needs for a shiny coat and strong muscles. It's a great source of energy too!

  2. Nutrient-Rich: Believe it or not, peanut butter contains essential nutrients like Vitamin B, Vitamin E, and Niacin, all contributing to your dog's overall well-being.

  3. Training & Mental Stimulation: Ever used peanut butter in a puzzle toy? It's a fantastic mental workout for your pup! Smearing a bit of peanut butter inside a toy can keep them entertained and engaged for quite some time. Of course, our own PEANUT BUTTER and BLUEBERRY treats are perfect for this, being soft baked they can easily be broken down to use as training aids too.

But beware of potential nasties:

  1. Check the Ingredients: Opt for natural, unsalted peanut butter without any additives like xylitol, a sweetener that's harmful to dogs. Keep it simple and safe!

  2. Moderation is Key: While peanut butter is a delightful treat, too much of a good thing can upset your dog's tummy or lead to weight gain. A small spoonful can be a perfect occasional treat.

  3. Allergies & Individual Sensitivities: Like us, some dogs might have peanut allergies or sensitivities. Introduce it gradually and keep an eye out for any adverse reactions.

Remember, every dog is unique, so what works for one might not work for another.

So, next time you're enjoying a peanut butter sarnie, consider sharing a dollop of peanut butter joy with your pooch. It's a yummy, nutritious addition that can add an extra wag to their tails and bring joy to their day. And if he or she likes it then add a couple of packets of treats to your next order, they are grain and gluten free and contain none of the nasties that some jars of peanut butter might.
