Pumpkin Dog Biscuits

November 22, 2011

Our dog loves pumpkin! I had some canned pumpkin in the fridge and was tired of stirring it into oatmeal and yogurt, so I thought I’d share it with her by baking some pumpkin dog biscuits. Sara’s not a picky eater, so almost everything gets a good review, but she did seem to especially enjoy these. They’re very crunchy, so it took her a little while to eat one, and since I know she likes pumpkin, I’m sure she enjoyed every bite.

This would be an ugly cookie, but it's a dog biscuit!

Recipe notes:

  • The recipe says to roll the dough to 1/2″ thick; I made them thinner and they still seemed pretty thick.
  • Mine stuck to the pan a little bit; next time I’d bake them on parchment or a silicone mat.

You can find the recipe here on the Every Day with Rachael Ray website. I bet your dog would appreciate a special Thanksgiving treat!

One more please!

I’ve got a lot going on in November! I’ve scheduled a few posts, but I won’t be getting around to everyone’s blogs this  month. I’ll catch up with you in December!


  1. Great idea! Might make a few of these for all the dog lovers I know. Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. What a cutie! I’ve been trying to get my dog to est pumpkin per the vet’s recommendation but he just won’t do it. Maybe pumpkin treats are the way to go

  3. Sara is precious! Love your recipe!

  4. What a great idea for leftover pumpkin! Sara is a adorable. I saw canned sweet potato specifically for dogs at Whole Foods. I have no idea what makes it special for dogs, but I am perfectly comfortable feeding my dog regular pumpkin or sweet potatoes.

    Hope you’re having a nice holiday weekend!

  5. Such a cute pup!

    The dog biscuits are a great idea. Pumpkin is really good for cats as well.

  6. Sara’s adorable! I want to walk through the screen and give her a big hug. Glad she liked her cokkies!

  7. Oh my god that is SO CUTE! I need to make these for my dog!

  8. These are adorable! I need to make these for my dog!
