This meat-free recipe with bright cranberry on top is appealing to most dogs. These cookies are heavy (potato flour is not light!), so make them small.

How to make Potato Cranberry Christmas Cookies for dog

center of each cookie, pushing the berry in slightly so that it stays in position.

Treats and tidbits: treats as gifts
For friends who own pets, canine toys make perfect holiday presents. Find out whether the dog of your friend has any food sensitivities or allergies and any preferences or dislikes for foods before choosing which recipe to create.
This is easy enough to do just make a batch of dog treats and post them before the holidays. Then talk about puppies, dog diets, allergies, and so on in your chat.
Only in casual chat would you figure out a lot. Choose a dish that can cater to her dog, until you hear of your friend’s dog.
Though all of these dog treats can be frozen, most are new, so make up the treats before the holidays in a timely manner. The week before that was amazing. In order to swap dog food, I prefer to use festive tins. Throughout the year, and I save them.
Maybe I’ll buy a tin of tea, or sweets, or cookies. Then I decorate the tins by painting them before the holidays, or using a hot glue gun to tie the holiday ribbon around them.
A hot glue gun may also be used to bind silk holiday flowers to the lid (holly leaves and berries, or poinsettias).
Tissue paper will cover the dog treats inside the tin so that they are not broken when shipped.
The ingredients found in the treats should be specified on a gift tag on the tin (especially if the dog has allergies or sensitivities). The gift tag could even mention the origins of the recipe (this one!) and also a link of this recipe could be included *-*!
