Pumpkin Dog Biscuits

Today I bring you a different kind of treat. It doesn’t involve cake, frosting, or even cookies.

But it’s still decadent and finger paw-lickin’ good - depending on who you ask.

I just couldn’t leave the canines out. I even had my own personal taste tester.

Her name is Lola. She’s a teensy bit spoiled.

 

And obviously, I’m not the only one making these homemade dog biscuits. Petsmart sells these adorable little cookie cutters! How cute is that little fire hydrant!?

 

These were very easy to make. And dry. Definitely a dog biscuit.

Whisk together eggs and pumpkin in a medium bowl. Stir in dry milk, sea salt, and parsley.

(*I used rice flour and masa (corn flour), which can be found in the Asian & Hispanic aisles of most grocery stores.)

Cut into shapes with cookie cutter.

 

Once completely cooled, melt Vanilla Candiquik and dip biscuits in coating.

Easy as that!

Have fun with these! Drizzle, pipe your pup’s name on them, add little designs, etc.

    I would love to do this with our Girl Scout troop and maybe donate them to a shelter. I’m just wondering since chocolate is a no-no for dogs, why are these okay? Thanks in advance! So very, very cute!!!

    My grandma has a dog and I will give on it’s birthday these cookies as a present. He will lobe them! Thanks a lot!!! :)

    Hi – Just curious if you know how long something like this would last before spoiling? It would be ideal to make a big batch at once and use them as needed!

    • says

      Hi Kris,
      I think they would last quite a long time in an airtight container since they are a very dry biscuit and not made with any butter/oil. However, I have not tested it and cannot give you an exact length of time. Best guess would be several weeks to a month.

      You can also try these tips:
      *Refrigeration: Using an airtight container is the best way to go. If you use this, your treats can last for at least 2 months in the refrigerator.
      *Freezer: If you use an airtight container your homemade dog cookies should last for at least 8 months in the freezer.

      Hope this helps!
      -Sarah

    These sound awesome, and I think I’ll try making some! But I do need to add that corn, even corn flour, should not be used. The brown rice flour is a fantastic addition, though. Corn causes allergies for a lot of dogs and excitability in even more. Just FYI. :)
