Cut Out Shapes

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.
