Droolworthy Gingerbread Cookies for Dogs

Posted by Tiffany Brenner

Nothing is more festive than gingerbread straight from the oven. It’s a tradition that everyone in the family can participate in - even the four-legged, furry member! 

Before we dive into our delicious gingerbread recipe, a quick reminder to keep an eye out for these toxic ingredients that are commonly found in baked goods: 

  • Xylitol, an artificial sweetener
  • Chocolate
  • Too much sugar

If you suspect your dog has ingested any of these toxic ingredients, call your veterinarian or the Animal Poison Helpline as soon as possible. 

Let’s Get Baking

Your dog is going to love these easy-to-bake gingerbread cookies! Be sure to dole them out in moderation, because your pup will definitely be begging for more!
