{RECIPE} Pumpkin Gelatin Gummy Dog Treats

Small bowl and napkins on a wooden table with homemade pumpkin gelatin gummy dog treats shaped like paws and bones

We love experimenting with interesting treat recipes and playing fun little shapes, designs, layers, and other decorations; however, quick, simple, and wholesome is still a go-to for treat making even in our treat crazy kitchen. The dogs don't care about looks, just deliciousness! We usually have a batch of simple gummies in the fridge all the time, either made with simple stock or boosted with spices/herbs, and occasionally I'll include fruits or veggies as well.

{RECIPE} Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dog (Trick or) Treats

Mmmm....pumpkin! Harvest is here for our northern furfriends and with it the silly season of all things pumpkin (and pumpkin spice), but here in New Zealand we like to enjoy pumpkin all year round. Pumpkin is delicious and nutritious, and we like to keep some cooked cubed pumpkin on hand in the freezer for quick and convenient use in baking/cooking for both humans and dogs.

{RECIPE} Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dog Cake with Blueberries

Small slices of blueberry dog cake on plates with dollops of whipped cream

This dog-friendly pumpkin and peanut butter cake is an easy pawty recipe if you'd prefer a more traditional cake or cupcake/pupcake to a meatloaf-style doggy cake. With yummy pumpkin, delicious nutritious blueberries, and a hint of irresistible peanut butter it is doggone droolworthy. You might even be tempted to taste test a piece yourself. We don't make cake treats very often around here - birthdays mostly, but also occasionally for special events and (of course) as part of our recipe development/testing. Whenever there is pupcake, our boys get VERY excited!

{RECIPE} Pumpkin Pie Gelatin Gummy Dog Treats

Hand holding a layered paw shaped gelatin gummy dog treat over a table of treats

These treats smelled soooo good! Ridiculously good. I almost convinced hubby to taste one. :) I probably would have myself to be honest, but being vegetarian I'm not into eating gelatin.  I liked working with pumpkin in gelatin for our Pumpkin Spice Latte Gummies, and decided to play around with a fancy variation to create a special pumpkin pie inspired gummy.  The results? Doggone droolworthy!

{RECIPE} Pumpkin and Herb Puppy Paw Print Dog Treats

Pumpkin dog treats stamped with a paw print design

These pawesome paw print dog treats combine the yummy tastes of pumpkin with healthy herbs and irresistible cheese.  The dough works well for roll-and-cut treats, but you can also make simple flattened balls or use our shortcut for making "cut" dog treats en masse. Easy peasy!

{RECIPE} Pumpkin Spice Latte Gummy Dog Treats

Dalmatian dogs begging for a bone shaped dog treat

It is springtime here in New Zealand, but every September our social media feeds still fill up with the tempting allure of pumpkin spice everything. Kiwis love cooking with pumpkin pretty much all year round and our dogs LOVE pumpkin, so I thought, why not create a PSL inspired gummy?

{RECIPE} Pumpkin + Peanut Butter Cake with Yogurt Frosting

Dog party buffet table with birthday cake and treats

It's not really a birthday party without a cake, is it? In the words of Julia Child, "a party without cake is just a meeting." and while we do enjoy meetings with doggone delicious snacks, barkday parties with dog-friendly cakes are far superior. :)  Our dog birthday cakes are usually meatloaf-style creations, but for Oli's barkday pawty this year I decided to make meatballs as a side and bake a "real" cake instead.

{RECIPE} Bacon Bone Dog Treats with Pumpkin and Herbs

Homemade pumpkin dog treats shaped like bones

It is a rare thing for my poor deprived dogs that there would be bacon cooking in the house (I'm a vegetarian), so when there was bacon for one of my husband's grilling recipes, how could I not take a little and make a few special dog treats? Oli was still very vision-impaired in his cataract surgery recovery, but he could definitely smell the doggone delicious scents of sizzling bacon, baking treats, and...sniff sniff sniff....taste testing!

It is springtime here, but our social media is all a-flutter with our northern pals and their pumpkin spice EVERYTHING. We're big pumpkin fans in any season, and I have to say that these tasty treats smell downright divine.  In honour of our Canadian fur-friends who will be celebrating Thanksgiving next weekend and autumn-loving pups everywhere, here's how we made these all-natural dog-friendly pumpkin (puptastic pupkin!) spice leaf treats.

{RECIPE} Pumpkin and Salmon Dog Treats

Homemade pumpkin and salmon dog treats in a drawstring treat bag

These pumpkin and salmon treats are packed with healthy goodness.  Our dogs LOVE their fish treats and the strong smell is simply irresistible. Our "Stinky Pinky" treats were a doggy hit, so we decided to create an adaptation that stretches the salmon into a much bigger batch of treats that are still stinky and fishaliscious using the healthy addition of delicious and nutritious pumpkin. Yum!
