Thinking of throwing an Agility Halloween party?
I came across this great recipe on the internet for pumpkin dog treats. I like to feed my dogs food in-season, so right now they’re enjoying apple slices and over-grown zucchinis. Try out this recipe and let us know what you think! I also boil the pumpkin into a ‘mess’ and pour it on top of my dogs’ food. They enjoy the treat!
PUMPKIN WAFERS DOG TREAT RECIPE
- One 15 oz. can mashed pure pumpkin (NOT the spiced pie filling)
- 3/4 cup cream of wheat (or rice cereal if wheat-sensitive) You can mix this dry–no need to cook it first
- 1/2 cup dry powdered milk
Directions: Preheat oven to 300 F.
Mix all ingredients together. Drop small spoonfuls (I use about half of a tablespoon) onto a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake at 300 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
If you’d like to make bite sized cookies for small dogs, training rewards or just small treats, you can use a pastry bag and squeeze out rosettes about the size of a dime for tasty bite sized cookies!
Awesome site you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any message boards that cover the same topics talked about in this article? I’d really love to be a part of online community where I can get responses from other experienced people that share the same interest. I’m just a admirer of almost all dogs and furthermore it hurts me to watch them experience hardships. I honestly believe in giving our dog acquaintances the perfect food and my love is sharing selfmade pet food recipes. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Thanks!
I’m sorry, I don’t – but good luck!
I make pumpkin cookies for my dog all the time. He loves them and so do most of his doggie friends. This is the recipe I use: 1 cup canned pumpkin (NOT PIE FILLING), 1 cup wheat germ, 2 cups whole wheat flour, 3 tablespoons honey, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, 2 teaspoons ginger and 1/4 to 1/3 cup water. Mix all together in a large bowl. The dough should form a ball. Add the water a little at a time to be sure it is not too sticky and add a bit more water if it is too dry. Divide the dough in about four sections and roll out on waxed paper, using a little flour to keep things from sticking. Use a small, bone shaped cookie cutter to cut out the treats. Place them on a cookie sheet lined with foil and bake at 325 for twenty-five to thirty minutes.
These come out very nicely and freeze well, so you don’t have to use them up right away!
