Want your canine companion to get in on the fun too? In this post, we’re pointing out 5 awesome dog treats that are perfectly safe for dogs and ooze Halloween spirit. Looking for something easy, practical, and affordable? Then these are your best options:
- Blueberry and pumpkin biscuits
This recipe from the Festive baker is perfect of dog owners who care about photo opportunities just as much as they care about the dog’s delight. These simple biscuits are adorable, colorful, and very easy to make. If you’re little friend’s on a diet, this healthy mix of seed and fruit will fit in perfectly with their healthy living plan. As you can see, it’ll be easy to confuse these bad boys for smarties inspired cookies, so it’d be a good idea to keep them clearly labelled if you’re having guests!
- Boneyard pupcakes
Fancy doing something a bit more special this year? This recipe might take a little bit more effort, but your rewards are a set of great pupcakes that look good enough for the kiddies to eat. “Pupcakes” are dog-friendly cupcakes. You drop the sugar and butter and replace them with dog-friendly alternatives that combine well to make a nice bouncy sponge. These are sure to pop on Instagram and the ingredients are “fruit and veggie” based, making them ultra healthy for your pup.
- Yoghurt-based dog treats
Yummy yogurt-based treats are simple, incredibly easy, and save you from the threat of too many messy crumbs being left all over the place. Gemma from Bigger Bolder Baking goes over a handy list of tasty yogurt treat ideas for you to choose from. All you need is an ice cube tray or a mould for the shape you want to create along with a mix of ingredients that you think best represent the holiday. Mash them up, fill your mould, let it set, and you’re good to go!
