Pumpkin Pie Dog Treats

Meet Tessa and Solay! A pug and a husky aren’t your typical duo but these girls are rockin’ the Fernie life. 

Tessa is a classic pug, she’s happy-go-lucky, always at your feet following anywhere you go and of course, she’s adorably snorty. She does have her moments and knows how to get all the attention, like when she randomly takes off to go run and bark around the skate park. What a clown! At over 10 years old, she’s still going strong. 

Solay is the athlete you would expect her to be. She has a way to get any dog to play with her and she loves to rip it through the bush, or the trails when she’s mountain biking with her family. Their schedule is packed with adventures and in down time, they make for the cutest photos as they curl up cuddling by the fire.

Like a lot of us, fall is a favourite time of year for most dogs. The days are cooler to adventure outdoors and it leaves them feeling like they can go all day. While we all indulge in the season of pumpkin spice and everything nice, why not share some of those yummy goodies with your best pal? Here’s a pumpkin pie dog treat recipe to help bring out the fun, and don’t worry it’s even easier than making real pie:


2. In a food processor or grinder, grind the oats into a flour consistency and transfer to a bowl. Then mix in the egg and 1 tbsp of water.
3. Press oat mixture into each muffin tin to make mini pie crusts.
4. Bake for 10 minutes and allow to cool.
5. Meanwhile, mix together the pumpkin puree with the cinnamon in a bowl.
6. Remove the crusts from the tin and fill each one with a dollop of puree. Top with a small spoonful of yogurt.
7. Serve and watch your dog devour these tasty treats!

They’re healthy, too. Pumpkin is nutrient rich, high in vitamin A, potassium and fibre. It’s commonly used for good digestion and to help dogs form solid stool. Now go and enjoy yourselves some classic fall-flavoured treats together!
