What Can I Put In Homemade Dog Food?

How to Make Pumpkin Dog Treats:

To start, pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees so that it is ready to use once you have your treats made. Add your wet and sticky ingredients together first (egg, pumpkin, & peanut butter). Once these are combined completely, slowly mix in the flour until a soft dough forms. Take your dough and roll it out on a surface that has been primed with flour to prevent sticking. Cut your dog treats out with a cookie cutter of your choice, bake, and serve!

Can Dogs Eat Raw Pumpkin?

How Much Pumpkin Can I Give My Dogs?

Can You Use Regular Flour for Dog Treats?

Yes, you can use regular all purpose flour for your dog treats. I try to use Almond Flour, Whole Wheat Flour, or Unbleached Flour in my dog’s recipes just like I do in the recipes I make for myself because of the nutritional value. 

My 100lbs puppy, Huntley loves these dog treats! He kept asking for more and wanted to go outside just to get a tasty pumpkin treat when he came in! Another one of his favorite cookies are these oat Christmas Cookie Treats for Dogs that you can make any time of the year (just change your cookie cutter)!
