Peary Delicious Dog Treats

Pears are a healthy treat—and they’re even better when baked into treats for your dog.

You can make them yourself with our homemade Peary Delicious Dog Treats, topped with Honest Kitchen’s Whole Food Clusters. Part of the apple family, pears are completely safe for dogs to eat, as they’re rich vitamins and minerals. But always remember to remove the seeds, stem, and core from the pear—especially the seeds, as they contain cyanide, which is toxic.

  • 2 pears chopped and cored

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Recipe Notes

You can leave the peel on the pear – it will become puree in the blender. Just make sure to wash the pears thoroughly before using.
