I know I’ve shared several dessert recipes with you for us humans to enjoy but what about our best furry friends? Yes, I made up this recipe especially for my best buddy, Welly. It is his birthday this month, he is going to be three! I can hardly believe it. Anyway, these biscuits are meaty, and pumpkiny, and they are definitely Welly approved! Make a batch for your dog and watch as he does everything he can to get it.
To start these biscuits, gather your ingredients and mix them in a large bowl.
You may have to get in there and use you hands to mix it a bit.
I let Welly lick some of the dough off my hand before I thoroughly washed my hand (warning: don’t do this unless you have a very gentle dog).
Roll out your dough.
Use cookie cutter to cut the dough, I used a pizza cutter to cut up the rest for training treat.
Place the treats on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake.
Once they are all baked allow them to cool before letting your K-9 companion try one.
Let your furry friend enjoy all your hard work or better yet do some training and give him a meaty pumpkin biscuit as a reward!
- ¾c. canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
- ¼c. unsweetened applesauce
- 2 eggs
- ¼c. canned dog food (I used
- Nature's Variety Instinct
- I have used the venison and also the duck flavored varietys)
- 3¼c. all purpose flour (you may need a bit more or a bit less depending on the consistency of your canned dog food)
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. You may find it easiest to use your hands to mix it. The end dough should be sort of a medium dough not super stiff but holds it's shape well.
- Roll the dough onto a well floured surface and roll to about a ½ inch thickness.
- Using a cookie cutter to cut the dough into your desired shapes.
- Instead of re-rolling to dough just use a pizza cutter to cut the dough up into little bit size pieces for training.
- Place cut dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake in preheated oven for 35-45 minutes or until firm to the touch.
- Store your biscuits in the refrigerator or freeze for longer storage. Personally I freeze them and just get some out and put them in the refrigerator the night before I need them.
Enjoy your fabulous meaty pumpkin treats, furry friends!
