It’s October, and that means it’s time for pumpkin-spice everything. But, while you’re enjoying your pumpkin-spiced lattes, muffins and pasta (no, really) your four-legged friends might feel like they’re missing out. So, I rounded up all the pumpkin-y treats just for dogs so they can partake in the festive fun too!
The ultimate pumpkin spice treat for dogs is obviously the Pup-kin Spiced Latte treats from Three Dog Bakery. It even comes in a domed lid cup like your pumpkin spiced latte. If you’re a PSL lover, you can’t not treat your dog with these.
Wag More Bark Less treats in pumpkin pie flavor come in both chewy and crunchy varieties. These treats are a year-round favorite at my pet store but I’ve noticed in the past month that the pumpkin pie variety has really picked up. This is an awesome choice for the holidays so your dog can their own pumpkin pie treat with the rest of the family!
I actually had the opportunity to review the Zuke’s Skinny Bakes Pumpkin and Sweet Potato Crunch last year before they were released and they were a big hit with both my dogs and my mom’s. I actually tried one of Cherry Berry flavored treats myself for the Stray Rescue Dog Treat Challenge. I wouldn’t make a habit out of eating dog treats, but if I had to they were pretty good! These are a nice sized treat with only 20 calories a piece. They also have an indent in the middle so you can easily snap them in half for smaller dogs.
Dogs Love Kale Punkin’ treats are a great way to get in on two popular food trends – pumpkin and kale. When we first got these in we were a bit skeptical about whether or not dogs would actually love, or even like, kale. But when we started sampling them out it turned out they do! These have been flying off the shelves ever since.
I’m going to sound like a total weirdo, but this is another treat I have personally tried. I swear I’m not a freak! Grandma Lucy’s Organic Baked Pumpkin Treats are actually really, really good. They taste like Teddy Grahams. I’m told we have at least one customer that buys them for herself. We’ve also set up sample days where we encouraged people to try these treats and they all agreed they were super tasty!
Plato Turkey and Pumpkin treats are like a full Thanksgiving feast in a treat form for your dog. They’re also a great grain-free treat for sensitive dogs.
Fruitables tag line is “smell the difference” and for good reason. These Fruitables Pumpkin & Blueberry Crunchy Dog Treats smell like fresh blueberry muffins. I don’t know if they taste like fresh blueberry muffins, since I swear I haven’t tried these! This crunchy treat line has several varieties that contain pumpkin. Oh, and they’re shaped like flowers which I think is a nice little touch.
Lastly, if you live in a warmer climate, you can still get in on the pumpkin goodness. The Bear & The Rat has a pumpkin frozen yogurt just for dogs. You might remember than Pug is a big fan of these products.
