When you have four dogs, you make a lot of yummy treats for them
I make cookies for my dogs quite often. Sometimes I will Make Icing for Dog Cookies.
How to Make Icing for Dog Cookies
There are a lot of foods that dogs can eat, despite all of the warnings about what they cannot eat.
I always wonder about what is dog-safe when I am making tasty treats for my pack of four.
I like to use yogurt when I Make Icing for Dog Cookies
Luckily, yogurt is usually safe for our dogs.
I use yogurt in a lot of the treats that I make for my dogs. I prefer to use Greek yogurt in my creations. Plain yogurt should be good as well. I would stay away from any yogurt that is flavored or has fruit in it.
Cream cheese is also said to be okay for dogs.
Dog cookies frosted with cream cheese icing are popular with my dogs. Cream cheese based icing for dog cookies does not harden as well and can be a bit messy.
What we should stay away from is chocolate.
It can seem to be a tasty idea to make an icing made with chocolate for our pups- heck we like chocolate icing right?
Chocolate contains caffeine, theobromine, phenylethylamine, and fromamide. I do not know much about these ingredients but, I have heard that in certain quantities that can make a dog very sick. I would never want this to happen on mu watch.
Carob is often used as a substitute for chocolate.
Carob looks like chocolate. Carob tastes a bit like chocolate- if you are desperate for a chocolate substitute than you may think that carob tastes a lot like chocolate. Carob does not contain the toxic substances- such as caffeine- that chocolate does.
Learning How to Make Icing for Dog Cookies is easier than you may think.
It really takes three basic ingredients. I like to top those three basic ingredients in an icing with something special such as bacon bits, shredded carrot, or specially made for pet consumption sprinkles.
