Halloween Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats Recipe #TreatThePups

Spread the love

Do you take your dogs trick-or-treating?  Over the years, I see more and more furry family members out and about and all dressed up for Halloween, trick-or-treating with the kids.  It’s so cute to see and I think it adds a new level to the family fun of the evening.  We’ve been known to take ours along for the ride a time or two and everyone loves stopping to pet and chat with us about our gentle giants! Today’s Halloween conversation about treating our pups during the holiday is sponsored by Lunchbox Create.  As always, though, all thoughts, opinions and love of including our dogs in our Halloween celebrations are that of Rural Mom.

Halloween Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats Recipe #TreatThePups

As so many of our friends have their pooches out on Halloween now, I’ve decided to have treats ready for them when they visit our home or when we see them along our trick-or-treat path.  So often we noticed the dogs looking wistfully a their owner’s candy buckets and it makes me feel great to gift a special treat the dog can enjoy.

Pumpkins simply scream “Halloween” so I thought it would be extra fun to craft a pumpkin-shaped cookie to serve along with some of our favorite dog treat favorites of Milk-Bone®Pup-Peroni® and Milos Kitchen®.  I love that Milk-Bone is a wholesome treat, making it the perfect companion to the wholesome dog cookie recipe I created.  Pup-Peroni and Milos Kitchen are made with real meat, making them a great bonus treat and one that every pup I know finds hard to resist!

Making the Halloween Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats recipe takes only a few minutes to prep and about 40 minutes to bake.  You could easily whip them up the day before Halloween and even make an extra batch later for your Thanksgiving celebrations.  Dogs love the peanut butter and pumpkin flavor combination, it’s truly a year-round special treat you can gift them anytime.

Once you have your cookies ready to serve the canine trick-or-treaters who show up at your home or to deliver to neighborhood pups, you can easily serve them straight from a bowl to each dog and/or pack a nice little goody bag for each pooch filled with Halloween Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats and a handful of Milk-Bone, Pup-Peroni and Milos Kitchen dog treats, too.  The dogs will enjoy the extra goodies and the owners will love having additional treats to hand out to their pets during the Halloween celebrations and beyond.

    These are too cute! I need to make Max some of these treats. I bought him a new toy for Halloween, but I bet he would love these. I don’t see dogs trick or treating around here, but I would love it.

    I’m a new dog owner and I’ve been on the hunt for doggie treat recipes. I’ll have to give yours a try and see how well Peanut likes them.

    I bought a box of mini treats for the dogs that trick or treat. My kids would love to make these cookies for our dog. I just hope she doesn’t steal them all before they’re cooled (it’s happened before).

    I have never thought about taking the dog trick or treating with us. But I love the idea of making sure they have their own treats for the day.

    I have always wanted to make homemade treats for my dogs, but I haven’t done it yet. I might try this soon.

    Those Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats would be perfect for my little Loki! I’m tasked with staying home and handing out the treats this year and Loki will definitely be there with me to greet the trick-or-treaters <3

    I never used to make actual treats for my dogs back when I had them–but they certainly had their share of Milk Bones and various other treats and not just on Halloween!
