Apples are packed full of goodness and can be a super healthy treats for dogs but they seem to be a hit or miss treat around here with Sherman and Leroy.
They seem to love dog treats with apples in them but just plain old apple slices seem to lack in the drool worthy treat category.
Leroy spits them across the floor and Sherman takes an apple slice, lays down with it and stares at it waiting for it to transform into something better.
Luckily for Sherman, last week his waiting was over and his plain old apple slice was transformed into something magical.
Apple slices dipped in peanut butter and sprinkled with coconut chips.
A super healthy snack packed with protein, fiber, calcium and vitamins A & E and simply irresistible for most picky dogs who aren’t fond of plain old apple slices.
The dogs love these so much that we now have a designated snack time almost everyday and as soon as they hear me slicing the apples they come running.
I split a whole apple with the dogs (they each get 3 slices and I get the rest) and I always make sure there are no seeds in the apple as these can potentially be harmful to dogs if bitten and ingested. I used DogsButter and organic coconut chips as the magical topping.
