But, my friends there still are things that throw Lacey is a blind panic tizzy. The best way to snap her out of it is with a positive distraction like her Buster Cube. If you aren’t familiar with it, a Buster Cube is nothing short of a miracle because it the treat dispensing puzzle changes every time the dog plays with it and holds her attention longer than the toys Lacey has already figured out.
What can I say? Lacy is a genius.
Who needs a bunch of healthy low calorie dog treats for her Buster Cube to cope with the holiday madness.
Butternut Dog Treat Recipe
After a quick check with Lacey’s veterinarian they confirmed butternut squash is safe for dogs to eat. Lacey later confirmed that dogs like to butternut squash. It’s a win - win!
If you don't have a dehydrator (Husband bought me a Nesco Dehydrator and I love it! IMHO it is much better than the Excalibur) you can make my butternut squash dog chews in the oven although they may be a little less dry as the dehydrator method. I would store them in the refrigerator or freezer just in case.
