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.
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.
Don’t have time to create special pumpkin cookies for your dogs? No problem! Just do the same thing you do for regular trick-or-treaters and have a bowl full of Milk-Bone, Pup-Peroni and Milos Kitchen dog treats ready to hand out on Halloween night!
