You won’t need the luck of the Irish to complete these pet-friendly St. Patrick’s Day DIYs! Whether you’re planning a little pawty for pets, or just want to include your BFF in your St. Patty’s day plans, these treats are sure to make your furry friend feel like they’ve found a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.

Bark Beer

Get the pawty started this St. Patrick’s Day with a recipe for homemade Bark Beer! This non-alcoholic version of pet-friendly green beer is dog-gone refreshing, and the ingredients are as healthy as they are festive.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons frozen spinach, chopped

Directions:

  1. Pour the chicken stock into a pint size mason jar.
  2. Chop up the spinach and add to the jar. The finer you chop it, the more green your ‘beer’ will turn out!
  3. Let sit in the refrigerator for roughly twenty-four hours, shaking it every few hours to help the colour of the spinach disperse evenly.
  4. Strain the spinach and pour into a drinking bottle.

This can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week and frozen for up to three months.

Pot of Gold Cookies

These delicious treats are perfect for those pups that aren’t of legal drinking age (approx. 3 years old and under), and even include a very fun and Instagram-worthy presentation.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 2/3 cup Plain Yogurt
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tsp Turmeric (optional for color)
  • A small flower pot (for your Gold!)

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large bowl mix together yogurt, egg, and turmeric. The turmeric is optional; however, it adds a fabulous yellow colour to your cookies making them look more like coins!
  3. Add the rice flour and coconut flour to the wet mixture and use your hands to create the dough. The dough will have a play-doh like consistency when ready.
  4. Shape your dough to look like a coin. You can roll the dough into small balls, flatten them between your palms and then round out the edges. You can use a cookie cutter or even a chocolate mold.
  5. Lay out your dough on a cookie sheet and pop them in the oven for 15 - 20 minutes. If you want your cookies to be very crunchy, after they are done cooking, turn the oven off and leave them inside for another hour or two.
  6. After your cookies have cooled completely, place them in your empty flower pot and voila! Consider printing out a half-rainbow and taping to the outside as an added effect.

This can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week and frozen for up to three months.
