Holiday Safety Tips

The Holidays are here! Wow, they seem to get here faster every year. I want to take this time to highlight just a few holiday safety tips:

  • Food & Plants: Be sure to review the dangerous foods and plants to dogs.
  • Electric cords & decorations: These always pose a threat and could cause a trip to the emergency room.
  • Garbage: Be sure there is no way for your Schnauzer to get into the garbage.
  • Guests: Be sure to inform your guests about the house rules. Let them know ahead of time about feeding, handling, children interaction, etc... with your Schnauzer.

Santa Paws Cookies

Delicious Holiday Cookies for Your Miniature Schnauzer

Pumpkin Cookies preheat oven to 350 degrees

  • 1/2 can real pumpkin
  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp honey

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl thoroughly. Use a nonstick cooking spray to lightly grease a cookie sheet. Drop by a rounded tablespoon and then flatten out a bit. Bake at 350 for 12 minutes. Let cool before serving. Store in a zip-lock bag in your refrigerator or freezer.
