Lavender is most known for its calming properties in humans, but has also been known to works for dogs. Try these treats to reduce anxiety and stress for your pet. These treats are not only tasty to them but add a therapeutic benefit.
Calming & Relaxing Dog Treats
1/4 cup Almond butter
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup water
1 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp Culinary lavender bud
Preheat oven to 350℉.
In a medium sized bowl combine all ingredients until you can form a dough.
On a lightly floured surface roll out your dough to thickness desired and use cookie cutter to cut out dough.
Place your cutouts on a silipat lined baking sheet (or lightly oil sprayed pan) and bake until golden brown. For thinly rolled dough bake about 12-15 minutes for thick dog treats about 20 minutes.
Once treats are golden brown remove from oven and let cool.
Place dog treats in airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. We store our extra dog bones in the freezer and remove just what we need for a treat. This keeps your dog treats fresh in the freezer for up to 8 months.
They make great gifts for your pet loving friends.
