Dog Days Surviving The Early Months With Your Puppy

Let me preface this post by saying that I am not an expert. I repeat, I am not an expert (on anything) on dogs. But, after having multiple puppies in my lifetime, and after these last few months with Trigger, I decided to put together a list of tips to help you in surviving the early months with your puppy.

Without further ado, here’s the recipe!



  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Using a food processor or blender, grind your oats until they’re powder.
  3. In a bowl, beat together the banana and peanut butter until smooth. A few small chunks of banana here and there is ok. The dough should stick together, but shouldn’t be sticky.
  4. Reserve about a tablespoon of ground oatmeal and pour the rest into the banana peanut butter mixture and mix until combined.
  5. Dust your surface with the reserved ground oatmeal and roll your dough to about a 1/4 inch thickness.
  6. Cut into desired shapes and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
  7. Bake treats for approximately 15 minutes, or until the edges start to brown.
  8. Cool completely before storing in an airtight container for up to a week

You can add additional peanut butter if the dough is too dry or additional oats if too sticky.
