Wholesome Pumpkin Snacks: Halloween Treats Your Small Breed Dog Will Howl for!

Monster Mash Pumpkin

Enhance your small breed dog's usual kibble by adding a dash of monster mash pumpkin—ideal for a snug Sunday brunch Halloween treat.

Frankenstein's Frozen Treats

Whirl it up with some plain goat's milk yoghurt, pour the concoction into ice cube moulds, and freeze for a refreshing post-dog walk cooldown Halloween treat.

Boo Biscuits

Craft these delightful Halloween dog treats by mixing 1 cup of pumpkin puree with ½ cup of dog-friendly peanut butter. Gradually incorporate 1 and ¾ cups of plain flour.

Blend the mixture, shape the biscuits, and bake at 180°C for approximately 8-10 minutes.

Witch's Wedges

Preheat the oven to 160°C. Peel, deseed, and cut your pumpkin into wedges. In a bowl, toss the wedges with two tablespoons of olive oil and one tablespoon of honey.

Roast on a tray for 20-25 minutes. Remember to allow all your baked Halloween dog treat goodies to cool before serving.


What are some easy homemade Halloween treats for small breed dogs? 

You can make simple Halloween treats for your small breed dog using ingredients like pumpkin puree, peanut butter, and oats.

Even more creative forms for Halloween, such ghosts or pumpkins, may be made with cookie cutters.

How to make pumpkin-flavored Halloween treats for small breed dogs? 

Mix one cup pureed pumpkin, quarter cup peanut butter, and two cups whole wheat flour to make snacks with a pumpkin flavour.

Roll out the dough, then cut shapes with a cookie cutter. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes at 350 degrees.

Are there any vet-approved Halloween treats for small breed dogs? 

Yes, many vets recommend treats that are made from natural ingredients and are low in fat and sugar. Pumpkin is a popular ingredient as it’s good for digestion.

Always consult with your vet before introducing new treats into your dog’s diet.

What are some high-rated businesses’ recommendations for Halloween treats for small breed dogs? 

Many high-rated pet food companies offer special Halloween treats for dogs. Choose treats with natural components instead than ones that have artificial flavourings or colours.

Can I make grain-free Halloween treats for my small breed dog? 

Absolutely! You can substitute grain-free flour like coconut or almond flour in any dog treat recipe. Just be sure to adjust the amount as these flours can be more absorbent than wheat flour.

Keep in mind that each dog is different, so what suits one may not suit another. Always consider your dog’s individual needs and preferences when making treats.

And of course, if you have any concerns about your dog’s health or diet, it’s best to consult with a vet. Enjoy your Halloween preparations!
