Furry Friends Get Spooky: The Best Homemade Halloween Treats for Dogs

Halloween is the season of spookiness, and it’s not just for humans anymore. A recent survey indicates that a whopping 76% of us are intent on dressing up our pets for the festivities. Our pets have always been part of the family, so it’s only natural to include them in the Halloween fun. This year, why not go beyond the costume and indulge your dog in some delicious, homemade Halloween treats? Puppy Hero, a canine-centric company, has scoured the internet for the best and most affordable recipes to help you do just that.

The popularity of pumpkin as a Halloween treat isn’t just confined to our lattes and pies. Dogs too can enjoy the rich, aromatic flavour of this seasonal special. Puppy Hero recommends a delightful pumpkin-flavoured treat that’s both easy to make and gentle on your wallet. At just £4.80, this recipe uses simple ingredients like pumpkin puree, brown rice flour, and frozen green peas. The end result? Adorable pumpkin-shaped treats that will have your dog wagging its tail in delight.

As the nights draw in and the temperature drops, what could be more refreshing than a pumpkin ice lolly? Priced at £3.74, this treat combines Greek yoghurt, cantaloupe melon, and honey for a sweet, creamy indulgence. And for a special Halloween twist, use pumpkin-shaped moulds for that extra spooky touch.

For those looking for a healthier option, the spooky frozen skulls and bones pupsicles are a must-try. This £2.13 recipe uses plain yoghurt, kale leaves, and blueberries to create a nutritious and tasty treat. Simply blend, pour into moulds, and freeze for a couple of hours.

Dogs can also enjoy a Halloween cupcake, or as Puppy Hero calls them, ‘pupcakes’. This £10.60 recipe is a bit of a splurge but is worth every penny. With ripe bananas, xylitol-free peanut butter, honey, and wholewheat flour as the main ingredients, these pupcakes are both delicious and nutritious.

Last but not least, the ‘Boneyard’ bites are the perfect end to your dog’s Halloween feast. At £3.60, these treats combine pumpkin puree, plain yoghurt, and bone biscuits for a spooky and delicious finale.
