I love to spoil my dogs, don’t you? Treats are always at the top of our grocery list, but they are getting ridiculously expensive.  Like $15 a bag that lasts us a week. So I went online looking for the best homemade dog biscuit recipe EVER and I found this recipe for Soft pumpkin dog treats. Perfect!

Soft pumpkin dog treats

I have senior chihuahua dogs, and they are somewhat picky when it comes to treats. I was a little worried they wouldn’t like the pumpkin. But they really did, it gives the biscuit a little bit of a sweet taste. Yes, I tried one and they weren’t too bad.

I gathered all my ingredients together and one can of pumpkin will make two batches of treats, I just put the other half of the can in a plastic container with a lid in the refrigerator and will make the second batch in a week, so it won’t go bad.

You can use the whole can and double the recipe. Then you can just freeze 1/2 of the treats for later. That will save some time, these will last my dogs a week. So next time I will for sure make a double batch. I already make their food each week, so I can make the treats at the same time as I make the food.

How long do homemade dog treats last?

These treats will last a week, maybe more, my dogs ate them in a week. We just put them in a zip bag on the counter. If you freeze them they would last much longer or you could put some in the refrigerator to make them last for a couple weeks.

Then place on a floured surface, knead several times. I just patted down the dough with my hands, you can use a rolling pin. You want the dough to be about 1/4 inch thick. Now get out that cute dog bone cookie cutter and cut out the shapes and put them on the baking sheet.

I rolled the rest of the dough until I couldn’t get anymore, then just baked the cut out piece as a whole, then after it baked it made nice little bits of treats. The dogs really don’t care what the shape is.

Bake in over until golden brown, approx. 20-25 minutes.
Let them cool completely before giving your pets the treats.

    My dog loves pb and pumpkin but, unfortunately, is allergic to eggs. Is there an ingredient I could substitute for the eggs? Thanks

      No problem, just add a 1/4 cup more water to the recipe.

    We have three elderly dogs who have a tough time eating the prepackaged dog treats/bones because they are too hard for them to chew. These are perfect and they love them. I have the second batch in the oven now. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    Do these stay soft once thawed out of a freezer? I’m looking to make treats I can hide medicines in and such. Or do these get hard like biscuits?

    1. Reply

      Yes they stay soft. Since they don’t have any preservatives in them I freeze most of the batch and only get out a handful every couple days from the freezer. My dogs love them. They would be perfect for hiding meds in.

    Peanut butter is contaminated with aflotoxin( fungus) in the US due to methods of storage of peanuts. I use raw almond butter, other nut butters instead .Also peanuts are hard on dog kidneys as the animals get older . Best to avoid. Pumkin is great for them it keeps regular and if they have diarrhea is helps that issue too

    I make these for my small dogs only I transfer the whole rolled out sheet onto the cookie sheet and then use a pizza cutter to make tiny squares. Since my dogs are so small, these fit in there mouths better and don’t add too many calories. I make a huge batch then freeze them in ziplock bags. I keep the bag I’m using in the fridge it seems safer since there are no preservatives in them.

      Hey Deana,
      What a GREAT idea!! I’m going to do that next time. I did notice that they get spoiled really quickly when I leave them out for a couple days. I’m going to take your advice next time and freeze most of them and keep one bag in the fridge! Thanks so much for the tip!
