Want to share the peanut butter love with your favorite dog during Peanut Butter Lovers Month? The dog lovers at Maddie’s Fund® have you covered!

The first two come from Kim, our Maddie’s® Adoption Program Manager.

“Kongs stuffed with peanut butter and plain Cheerios are a delicious treat for dogs,” she said. “If they get really fast at getting the food out of the Kong, you can freeze them to make it more challenging. Great brain exercise for them, too!”

If you’re feeling more ambitious, her dogs give a big paws-up to these delicious Peanut Butter and Bacon Dog Treats. “They love the little surprise bacon bits,” she said.

Here’s her twist on the tasty treat:

“I made a double recipe and replaced 1/3 cup of oil with 1/3 cup of store bought beef gravy, and cut Pupperoni treats into small slices (6 treats cut up) and mixed them in.”
