DIY Easter Basket for Your Dog

We wanted to show you how easy is can be to create an Easter basket for your dog or other fur kids! Children aren’t the only ones who can enjoy a surprise from the Easter bunny and search for eggs hidden around the house!
We started with an Easter basket and grass, which you can find at your local drug, grocery or craft store.
For the goodies in the basket we have a variety of toys and treats we picked up at local pet stores, including Greenies from Your Pet Stop and treats from Northview Pet Food.
To fill the Easter eggs, we made homemade dog treats in the shape of bones and bears. If you’d like to make these for your dog’s Easter basket, here is the recipe:
Dog Biscuits
2 ½ C. Whole Wheat Flour
2 Eggs
1 ¼ C. Pumpkin
¼ C. Water
½ Tsp. Cinnamon
Mix all ingredients together. Flour counter & rolling pin. Roll out to ¼ inch thick. Cut out shapes. Bake 20 minutes at 350º. Keep in air tight container in the fridge.
Arrange the toys, treats and goodies in the Easter basket and whoa-la, it’s done!
Hide Easter eggs throughout your house in places your dog can find easily. Their strong sense of smell will lead them to every treat-filled egg you have hidden. (Please watch your dog carefully as they search for eggs so they do not chew on or ingest any plastic eggs.)
We also filled some little Easter baskets with homemade dog treats for our 4-legged friends and neighbors!

    Very cute idea and web page. But, Easter grass can be very harmful to both cats and dogs. can cause a foreign Body obstruction in the intestines of pets!

      Good point, Katie. We certainly recommend watching your pets so they do not get into the grass in Easter baskets.
