For Lido, pumpkin season lasts all year round. Lucky pup, right?
Pumpkin has incredible health benefits for dogs, and makes for the perfect addition to homemade dog treats.
Some of the benefits of pumpkin are:
- Can help diarrhea and digestive issues
- Great for skin and coat
- Helps fight intestinal parasites
- Promotes eye health
These treats are a fun way to incorporate pumpkin in your dog's diet.
Here's what you'll need:
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon of honey
Not required -- Pet themed cookie cutters from Amazon
Mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl. You can add water to make it softer if necessary.
Flatten some dough to prepare the cookie cutting if you decided to use cookie cutters
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees
Place all of the cut out shapes on a baking pan with parchment paper
Cook the cookies for about 20-30 minutes depending on how soft you want them. Personally, I like leaving them a bit soft for Lido!
