Easter is here and that means it’s finally time to crack open those tempting chocolate eggs that have been sitting in your snack cupboard – but surely you can’t miss the furry family member?
While they can’t be in chocolate, there are still plenty of Easter-inspired treats your dog(s) can enjoy over the holidays.
Because chocolate is toxic to dogs due to an ingredient called theobromine, many of the treats we’ve discovered are made with carob, which makes for a dog-friendly alternative to chocolate — and it’s good for them, too! Carob is high in fiber and contains a variety of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to help support your pup’s digestive system.
To make sure they don’t miss out on all the egg-cracking fun this weekend, we’ve compiled a list of the best doggie Easter eggs and treats, including bunny-shaped cookies, carob eggs, and other snacks your pooch can enjoy this year.
