Happy dog days!  Today we’re sharing homemade pumpkin dog treats.  And bonus, we have free printable dog tags to gift it to that special dog lover in your life.


You’ll probably have everything on hand to whip up these dog drool-worthy treats.


  • 1/2 cup organic canned pumpkin
  • 4 tablespoons molasses
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix the pumpkin, molasses, vegetable oil, and water together in a bowl.
  3. Add the whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon to the mixture and stir until the dough softens.
  4. Scoop out small spoonfuls of dough {about 1 inch wide} and roll them into balls with your hands {wet hands work best}.
  5. Set the balls onto a lightly greased cookie sheet and flatten them with a fork.
  6. For hard treats, bake for approximately 25 minutes.  For softer, “pull-apart,” chewy treats, bake for 10 minutes.


Your treats can last for at least 2 months in the refrigerator or 8 months in the freezer.  Just make sure to seal them in an airtight container.
