Surprise the pet-lovers in your life with treats for their cat or dog. Our cat and dog treat recipes are easy to make, and with cute packaging ideas, they make adorable gifts for Christmas or pet birthdays.

Peanut Butter Pup Treats

Your loved one's pup will happily chow down on these crispy peanut butter treats. To package them, tie up a bag of treats and place it in a cardboard roll (like a bathroom tissue or paper towel roll). Then print off your favorite of our four dog patterns, cut around the head, and wrap it around the tube.

Spiced Pumpkin Snaps Dog Treats

These sweet, apple-and-pumpkin treats have the crunch dogs enjoy. Decorate a tin with a paper chain of dog-bone shapes. Glue the chain around the tin, and add another paper bone on top. Use adhesive paper to attach a cute "give a dog a bone" label.

Nutty Squash Dog Treats

Our Nutty Squash Dog Treats are yummy for owners, too, making them an even better gift. Package the treats in a crafts pillow box. Then, use strips of a clean cotton T-shirt to make a dog-friendly braided toy to give along with the treats.
