DogBoy’s Top 5 Halloween Dog Treats:

The ingredients in these treats are safe for your dog in these quantities. In case you’re thinking of adding your own touches, be sure to check our toxic food list and diet guide!

Frozen Candy Corn

Ingredients:

  • 1 – 1 ½ cups plain non-fat yogurt
  • 1 – 2 small bananas
  • ½ cup canned pumpkin
  • 8 3oz paper cups

Instructions:

Put a spoonful of yogurt into the bottom of the paper cups (about ½ cup total). Freeze these for 1 – 1.5 hours.  Optionally, you can mix ½ cup yogurt and ½ cup pumpkin. Next add a spoonful of the yogurt-pumpkin mixture or just the canned pumpkin to the paper cups. Freeze for 1 – 1.5 hours. Mash 1-2 bananas then mix bananas with ½ cup plain yogurt. Add a spoonful of the yogurt-banana mixture or just mashed bananas to the paper cups. Freeze for 1 – 1.5 hours. Peel off the paper cup and serve! Pumpkin is really healthy for your dog, but watch out for pumpkin pie filling! It’s the opposite!

Mummy Bones

  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup All-Purpose flour
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • ¾ cup almond milk
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • White chocolate
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ cup natural peanut butter (no Xylitol!!)

Instructions:

Mix the wet ingredients. Combine dry ingredients. Slowly mix dry ingredients into wet mixture by hand. The dough should be easily pliable. Roll out the dough ½ inch thick, then cut bone shapes from the dough. Place bones on a cookie sheet. Preheat the oven to 325 then bake the bones for 20 minutes .Take the bones out, flip them, then place back in the oven for  15 minutes. Cool on a rack. Melt yogurt chips/white chocolate in a double boiler until smooth. Use as dip or ice the bones to give them that mummy-wrap look.

Pumpkin Cookie Treats

  • 1 jar pumpkin or squash baby food
  • ½ cup rice flour
  • Water (as needed)
  • Frozen green peas

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 355. Empty baby food into a mixing bowl. Add flour while mixing into a firm dough. The amount of flour required may vary. You can add a little bit of water or additional flour to adjust consistency. Hand roll into small balls, place on a lined baking sheet, and flatten gently with your hand. To create “pumpkin lines”, press the back of a knife gently in the center, and the curved side of a spoon gently on either side.  Place a green pea for the stem. Bake for 15 minutes and cool them on a rack.

  • 1 cup canned pumpkin

Add all ingredients to a stand mixer bowl fitted with a beater attachment.  Mix on medium speed.  Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix again.  Mixture should be thick, not watery. Roll dough between 2 parchment sheets until ¼ inch thick.  Use a bone shaped cutter to make cookies. Bake for about 15 minutes. Cool on a drying rack.
