Looking to add CBD to your dog's wellness routine? Maybe you want to help Sparky maintain a sense of calm or support physical comfort and mobility. Or you're headed back to the office or school and Sofie isn't happy being left alone all day.

If you're ready to try CBD for your dog — or even if you've been using it for a while — we've got five easy ways and a variety of options and flavors to keep your pup happy and make it super easy to fit CBD into their daily routine.

1. Straight from the Dropper
CBD oil tinctures are a go-to favorite because they're super simple to use. With pup-approved flavors like peanut butter (or unflavored for picky pooches), and a plastic dropper for safety, you can squeeze it directly into your dog's mouth. It's a great option if you have more than one pet in the family, since a tincture makes it easy to customize serving size.

2. Add to Meals or Snacks
If your pup won't take CBD oil directly from the dropper, you can drizzle it over kibble or on their favorite snack. As long as you stay within the daily recommended serving size, you can divide it up throughout the day. Maybe start with a few drops at breakfast, a couple on a snack mid-day, and the rest at dinner. And feel free to mix up the flavors to add some variety!

3. Try a Tasty Treat
If you don't want to fuss with oil and droppers, try a tasty treat! CBD treats offer up baked, crunchy goodness dogs crave. Available in peanut butter and baked cheese flavors and made with wholesome ingredients and no artificial flavors or additives, these treats are perfect for doggos on the go! CBD soft chews provide the same powerful properties of CBD in chicken and bacon flavor, but in soft, chewy bites that are perfect for small, sensitive, or aging teeth. Both treats come in three strengths, based on your dog's weight, so you can easily find the perfect fit.

4. Mix It Up with Peanut Butter
Most dogs go nuts for peanut butter, so why not spoil them with our CBD peanut butter? Made with just three wholesome ingredients, this is a rich, delicious indulgence your pup is sure to love. Let them lick it right off the spoon or use it in an easy homemade recipe.

5. Make Your Own Homemade Treats
Even if you're not a whiz in the kitchen, CBD oil and peanut butter make it super easy to create your own homemade dog treats. You can decide what strength of CBD you want (our oils and peanut butter come in multiple strengths) and how much you want in each treat. Just be mindful of how much you use, so you know the amount of CBD is in each treat. From baked to frozen to no-bake options, you can get creative and have some fun!

Things to Consider
With so many options to offer your dog CBD, you might wonder where to start. Here are some things to consider:

  • Your daily routine. If you have a fairly consistent schedule and your dog is home more than not, you can be flexible with the CBD oil product you use. A dropper of oil with meals or a spoonful of peanut butter are easy at home. But if you and your doggo are on the go, CBD treats or soft chews are portable and convenient, with precise servings in each treat.

  • Number of pets. If you have more than one furry family member and they each need a different serving size, then CBD oil makes it easy to provide the precise amount. Or maybe one pooch is pickier than the other, which means having both a flavored and unflavored option is a perfect solution.

  • Support goals. In addition to general daily wellness, if your best friend needs some additional support, then consider a CBD product with added ingredients for their specific issue. If your nervous pup needs a little help staying calm, our CBD calming chews and CBD calming oil offer soothing herbal blends with ingredients like melatonin or L-tryptophan. Maybe your good boy or girl is getting older and needs a little added physical comfort. Our CBD hip+joint chews feature glucosamine HCL and chondroitin sulfate to support mobility at every age and help keep them active.
