Last month you all liked our Halloween dog treats so much, I figured I should re-enact the magic with some holiday dog treats for Christmas.
I've done reindeer crafts a number of times. Chocolate reindeer, handprint reindeer, popsicle stick reindeer. There are reindeer coming out our ears here, people! Trying my hand at a reindeer made of dog treats, though, THAT was a new one for me.
First of all, I'm going to address all those who may not totally get holiday dog treats. Take Nate, for instance. He looked at my clever reindeer craft and was a total naysayer. “That's not a reinder, Chelsea. That is a blob with some sticks.”
Some people have no imagination.
Do you guys see it?
How about now?
Good. Glad that's settled.
All you need are some papers plates, brown acrylic paint, Pup-peroni sticks and Milk-Bone puppy treats.
The hardest part of these holiday dog treats is getting the paw print. I wish I had some sort of special trick for you, but the fact of the matter is that you're wrangling a large animal and a bunch of paint. It's going to get messy. I kept some baby wipes within reach so I could easily clean up before he took off and left little doggy paint tracks all over the place.
Next, we add a few of those Pup-peroni treat sticks and Milk-Bone puppy bones in the shape of antlers for our holiday dog treats.
Seriously, how simple was that? Now go ahead and pin these holiday dog treats for later!
Do you do anything special to treat your pups for the holidays?
