Starbucks couldn't even wait until September before bringing the Pumpkin Spiced Latte back to their menu! Why not let your fur baby get in on the action?

If your dogs are anything like ours, then you’re probably no stranger to distracting your sweet pup with some tasty noms while carefully slipping on that adorable shark costume you bring out this time of year. Well, these pumpkin spice treats will definitely do the trick! Best of all, they’re really good for your fur baby!

Did you know that pumpkin is a super food for doggos?

For one thing, it’s high fiber content is great for your pup’s digestive health. So, if Sparky’s potty time isn’t quite in that “Goldilocks” range (not too soft and not too hard) lately, then a little pumpkin might just help get him back to normal. Pumpkin is also loaded with vitamins A and C, which are great for dog’s vision and immune health.

"But, what about the seeds? Can they eat the seeds?", we hear you asking your screen right now. Well, the answer is, if they're cooked and not spiced, then yes! (Also, maybe stop talking to inanimate objects.) 

These treats have more healthy surprises in store for your pooch too! Cinnamon has natural anti-inflammatory properties and eggs are a wonderful source of protein and fatty acids. If your pup is allergic to eggs, just use mashed banana or applesauce instead. Problem solved and still super healthy!

With a few of these yummy treats in hand, we’re guessing that the shark costume will go on in record time this year. Just promise to send us pics of the feeding frenzy that’s sure to follow!

Pumpkin Spice Treats

You'll need:
1 can (15oz) pumpkin puree
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons honey
2 eggs (substitute 1 medium banana-mashed or ½ cup unsweetened applesauce)
4 cups flour

Preheat the oven to 350. In a mixer, combine the pumpkin puree, cinnamon, honey, and eggs, then slowly beat in the flour. Lay out the dough onto a liberally floured countertop and roll out until ¼" thick. Use dog themed cookie cutters to cut shapes, and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat before placing your cookies on the tray. Bake for 30 minutes, let cool, and then watch your dog enjoy their pumpkin spiced concoction!
