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.
