Cut Out Shapes

Roll dough to an inch thickness and cut in desired shapes. Have fun with dog-
inspired cookie cutters such as bones, hearts and hydrants. Tip: Be sure to make treats appropriate for the size of the dog. Larger dogs prefer large treats; small dogs will appreciate smaller sized treats.

Bake Treats

Place treats on a baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes. Then turn off the heat and let the cookies stand in the oven until hard, from one to two hours.

Prepare Carob Chips

Place carob chips in microwave-proof container and melt on low heat, stirring occasionally. Dip treats into melted carob; set aside till carob hardens. Note: Carob is safe for dogs, chocolate is not. Never give dogs chocolate.

Package Treats

Package treats creatively by placing them in a cookie tin or by stringing them onto beaded chain dog-tag style.
