Festive Delights: Michelle’s Christmas Treats for Bear

In the heart of Nashville, where the holiday spirit lights up the city, Michelle Parker and her Chocolate Lab, Bear, embrace the joyous season with open arms. During Christmas, Michelle loves to create special moments for Bear, especially by crafting festive treats. Given that Bear’s preferences can vary, Michelle ensures that the holiday treats not only capture the spirit of Christmas but also keep Bear excited and engaged.

The Joy of Holiday Treats

As Christmas approaches, Michelle turns her kitchen into a mini workshop for dog treats. Her goal is to make this holiday memorable for Bear by baking treats that are both nutritious and festive. This year, she decided to share her favorite Christmas treats for dogs, perfect for keeping Bear, and any furry friend, in merry spirits.

Crafting the Perfect Christmas Treats for Dogs

Michelle’s Christmas treats are not only a hit with Bear but also provide a fun, nutritious way to include him in the holiday festivities.

Ingredients for Christmas Dog Treats:

  • Whole Wheat Flour: Provides a healthy base for the treats.
  • Peanut Butter: A favorite of many dogs, offering a source of protein.
  • Pumpkin Puree: Adds fiber and a festive touch.
  • Cinnamon: A hint of spice that's safe for dogs and enhances the holiday scent.
  • Eggs: Bind the ingredients together and add protein.

The Recipe: Christmas Treats for Dogs


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (xylitol-free)
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 eggs


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the whole wheat flour, cinnamon, pumpkin puree, peanut butter, and eggs until well combined.
  3. Roll out the dough on a floured surface to about 1/4-inch thickness.
  4. Use festive cookie cutters, like Christmas trees or stars, to cut out the treats.
  5. Place the treats on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the treats are golden and firm.
  7. Let the treats cool completely before giving them to Bear.

Michelle’s Holiday Traditions with Bear

Each Christmas, Michelle and Bear enjoy their holiday traditions, including decorating the tree, wrapping gifts, and baking these special treats. Bear knows when it's baking time and patiently waits by the kitchen, enticed by the delicious smells.

Keeping Bear Engaged with Holiday Treat Variety

Understanding that Bear’s preferences sometimes change, especially around the hustle and bustle of the holidays, Michelle likes to introduce a variety of treats. This keeps Bear excited and lets him enjoy different flavors and textures.

Tips for Keeping Christmas Treat Time Exciting:

  • Rotate Flavors: Introduce different ingredients like sweet potatoes or apples in other treat recipes.
  • Special Presentation: Serve treats in a fun, festive way, perhaps tucked into a small stocking or under the Christmas tree for Bear to find.
  • Interactive Play: Combine treat time with play, using treats in puzzle toys that keep Bear mentally stimulated.

Conclusion: A Tail-Wagging Holiday Season

Michelle’s Christmas treats for dogs are more than just snacks; they are a way to express love and care for Bear during the festive season. By sharing her recipes, Michelle hopes to inspire other dog owners to create special holiday moments that include their furry family members.
