For the Canine Cupids: Peanut Butter Hearts


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour (substitute with any pet-safe flour if your dog is allergic)
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter (make sure it’s xylitol-free)


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, oats, and baking powder. Then, stir in the chicken broth and peanut butter until the mixture forms a dough.
  3. Roll out the dough on a floured surface to about 1/4 inch thick. Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out the treats.
  4. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. Let them cool before serving to your furry valentine.

For the Feline Friends: Tuna Love Bites


  • 1 can of tuna in water, drained

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Blend the tuna, flour, catnip, and egg in a food processor until a dough forms.
  3. Roll small portions of the dough into balls and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Flatten them slightly to form bite-sized discs.
