When guests come over (which we have regularly), for our breed of dog, it’s good to have dog treats ready. Alder is rambuncious and loves to “greet” our friends, so we’ve learned to keep a few treats in our pockets. 

Here’s a post I wrote years ago, Pet [Dog] Ettiquette when Entertaining.

How to Make BEST Apple Carrot Dog Biscuits

Doggie favorites – TIPS for the recipe

Be sure to core your apple before grating. Apple seeds aren’t good for dogs!

Use a small cookie cutter for 20-24 biscuits.

You make as you would any other cookie, using your favorite shaped cookie cutter.

Make, bake, and allow to cool.

One reader used half almond flour and half all-purpose flour, adding 1 1/2 teaspoon of flax seeds, and they turned out great.
