Pepernoten are a Dutch cookie-like confectionery which is associated with the Dutch / Belgian Sinterklaas holiday on December 5th.
To allow your dog to be part of that tradition, we have created a dog-friendly version of the pepernoten. They are sugar-free, of course. And only contain spices that dogs are allowed to consume.
Ceylon cinnamon, for example, can help maintain a healthy weight as it regulates the blood sugar. It also has anti-inflammatory properties which is especially beneficial for elderly dogs suffering from arthritis.
Dates are low in fat and a cholesterol free snack. They are also high in fiber, packed with vitamins and certain amino acids that are very good for the nervous system. Dates have a positive impact on the bowel system.
Fun Fact: "A particularly distinct custom associated with pepernoten is throwing them in handfuls through the room so children can look for them. Originally this is an ancient fertility symbol not unlike throwing rice at a marriage like a farmer sowing seeds. In ancient times, parents of newborns would place one or two carrots underneath the infant's pillow. They believed Sinterklaas would then come and bless the child by showering the infant with pepernoten." (Source: Wikipedia)
So you can go ahead and throw a bunch on the floor for your dog to find, just like in the Dutch tradition ;-)
