If you suspect your doggy is lactose intolerant we recommend removing the cheese from the recipe or choosing another recipaws.

Make sure to always adjust your dog’s daily food allowance so they don’t gain weight while enjoying their delicious new snacks.

Other Easter food tips

Whilst caught up in the excitement of your Easter egg hunt or enjoying your family Sunday dinner, you may be tempted to slip a couple of tidbits to your furry friend. Of course, we don’t want them to miss out on the fun either but, we want to offer some guidance that will ensure the happiness and health of your dog this Easter.

The Do’s

Great snacks for dogs include carrots, broccoli and green beans. Eaten in small amounts these can be a great addition to a healthy diet. Instead of scraping leftovers into your dog’s bowl at the end of the meal, how about setting aside a few bits of the veg you're serving up. This may also briefly occupy them while you enjoy your meal!

The Don’ts

Chocolate is toxic for dogs and so this falls into the definite ‘no’s’ for Easter. Why not try treating them to a small amount of dog chocolate instead. There are lots of different types on offer including Easter-themed options.

Offering them their own treat will also prevent them from getting bored and trying to steal an egg off of an unsuspecting family member.

Just remember to feed them their doggy chocolate in moderation!

Things to do

If you want to include your dog in your Easter celebrations how about giving your dog its very own Easter egg hunt? Hide dog-friendly treats that have a strong smell around your house or garden and let them explore. This can provide great mental stimulation for them as well as entertainment for you.

Another great idea is to bake a dog-friendly Easter treat for them.
