This gingerbread dog bone recipe is a great choice for holiday celebrations and gift giving, but you and your dog will also enjoy the smell and taste of homemade gingerbread dog bones, all year long!
Do you enjoy the smell of gingerbread baking in the oven? Well, your dog probably does, too. Dogs have a very sensitive sense of smell, and they get lots of enjoyment from smelling interesting (and tasty) things.
When they are baking, these gingerbread dog treats give off a wonderful spicy aroma that reminds you of gingerbread cake or cookies, baking in the fall.
In fact, it is almost impossible to distinguish the aromas of ginger dog treats and homemade gingerbread. I’ve found that Skipper stays close to the oven when I am baking gingerbread for my family, as she seems to think that the baking cake is for her.
Gingerbread dog bones, baking in the oven, are certain to remind you of Thanksgiving, Christmas or a cold afternoon in the fall, with gingerbread cookies baking in the oven.
But, since these gingerbread dog treats are a favorite for many dogs, I wouldn’t just make them for special occasions. Let your dog enjoy the taste of ginger, year-round!
In addition to smelling and tasting good, these dog bone treats are healthy for your dog. Ginger is a natural anti-inflammatory that helps keep your dog healthy and her joints moving and pain-free.
To make gingerbread bones, you can use a number of sizes of dog bone cookie cutters .
No matter what the size, though, these easy treats won't last long!
I like to do things the easiest way possible, so I always make this dog treat recipe in my bread maker. You can use a mixer and make the recipe a more conventional way if you prefer.
