I like to bake homemade dog biscuits for our four furry friends. This way I know exactly what is in them and they are healthier (and cheaper) than store-bought treats. Most of these ingredients you’ll find already in your pantry. Let’s make some Homemade Pumpkin Dog Biscuits!

Homemade Dog Biscuits Recipe

Homemade Pumpkin Dog Biscuits

I did buy a bag of the whole wheat flour and this is all I use it for. When I’m ready for a new batch, all I need to pick up is a can of pumpkin for about a buck! Each can makes about TWO batches, so double up and your pooches will have dog biscuits for weeks!

Another bonus to using pumpkin? It helps soothe puppy stomachs and relieves anal glands. Considering that milking my dogs’ anal glands is on the very bottom of my list of favorite things to do, I call that a win-win folks!

2 Tbsp Peanut Butter
2 Eggs
2 1/2 C Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 C Pumpkin (about half a can)
1 dog bone shaped cookie cutter

Combine all ingredients and mix until blended.  Use your rolling pin to work the mixture flat, then use your dog cookie cutter (here are a bunch to choose from!) to make them into little bones or paws.  Bake at 350° for 35 – 40 minutes, let cool and you’re done!  How precious are these?! Benson is ready for his! ♥

I’ve even tasted them (because I know what’s in them!) and they aren’t half bad! Haha!!

  1. I’m interested in making these for my Boston terrier, do you know if it will cause her to have any diarrhea or any tummy issues? She’s very healthy but getting older and a little Picky..
    1. Hi Terry! I am not sure if you have tried this recipe by now. If this helps you, we have always had dogs. My daughter has had 3 Jack Russells over the past 20 years. The first two developed kidney issues and sensitive stomachs with age. They did well with treats similar to these and lived to be 15+. My current little granddog is 10. She has never slowed down, is in good general health but did developed a more sensitive stomach. This recipe for treats has been great for her. Pumpkin usually settles a dog's stomach and the whole wheat flour is a good slow burning carb. Hope this helps!
    2. Ashlea, I love this recipe! I baked these treats for family dogs and neighbors with dogs. I also made some substituting the whole eggs with egg whites and a little nonfat greek yogurt in this recipe. Good for overweight dogs. I made some for a young very overweight Mastiff rescued by my local shelter with heart issues.

  3. Hi Ashley, I was so cheri excited to set both three cream of recipes. Ive been really sick for a few years no. Can't eat preservatives and wow so much. However, I love especially this time of year crain of mushroom soup. Buy alas I cannot eat it anymore. It blew my mind when my fav company started shipping high fructose corn syrup‍♀️. Ive taken to making an amazing mushroom bisque. But thats ait for one and I prefer not to freeze so much of something. So in really excited for these! Thank you!! Have you tried adding celery seed to celery soup. It can be blended smooth im sure‍♀️ I'll try it and the leaves are a great mention. I use them in everything salads etc. Yum! Ok of track. Lol n.y question here is te pup biscuits. I was about to jump up n down in excitement. I bought a biscuit baker even, after a few years finally just have it away, ohh buggers lolol the way it goes right! Anyway my guy refuses to eat anything that remotely smells like peanut butter and LOVES PUMPKIN Then I realized There's P. Butta in here. Do you have any idea of a swap I can use? I know he'll love these! Thank you again for ALWAYS SHARING SO MUCH! GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON AND THROUGHOUT NEXT YEAR
  4. Such a wonderful information and facts right here. Thank you you for expressing, I really do really enjoy it. I actually have been searching for something like this for a long time. By the way, I shared your post with my friends and they like it too. You already know, I like yorkies, thus i made a website, exactly where I also share recommendations on that little creatures. I really hope you will as if it as well!
  5. I made and my dogs do love these. But they got moldy before we got thru them all. I have a ceramic canister for treats so I am not sure what went wrong. Advice?
      1. I usually use a recipe with peanut butter/ hot water,/Oats & Whole Wheat flour ,,, but i freeze them ,,, ,I wish there was a way to air fry them,, using the baking button lol I hate heating the kitchen up in the summer.
        1. I picked up a dehydrator a few years ago. It takes longer but no excess heat. After that I bought one for my son at Christmas to use. Amazon has them starting at $34. i also saw that an air fryer can be used
    1. I’ve been making my dog’s treats for many years. I’ve learned a lot over the years. I use brown rice flour, oat flour and a little arrowroot powder for binding since these flours are gluten free, with organic peanut butter and organic coconut water. Occasionally I’ll add some ground flax seeds as these are very nutritious for dogs. Then I bake at 275° for 3 hours - yes, 3 hours! It dries them out well so they will not mold. You could use a dehydrator if you have one, but that takes a long time too. After cooling, I bag them up and freeze them. This way I’m taking out only what she’ll eat for two weeks at a time and they’re always fresh. I make several baking sheets full so I have enough to last about 3-4 months. My dog has a very sensitive tummy and got sick after eating every store bought treats we tried. She’s never had an issue since I started making them myself.
    1. I’ve used almond flour for a similar recipe because I had everything on hand besides whole wheat flour and they turned out perfect! Definitely put in fridge afterwards AND I ended up making too much of the dough so I put one of the dough balls in freezer for later…perfection!
  6. These are wonderful and well-loved by all Liberty's neighborhood doggies..... we make about 9 dozen to give out for Christmas treats every year! Our vet's office is a recipient as well! ( I've also used Sweet Potato Puree instead of Pumpkin which was well received. Licks and Woofs approved!
  7. has anyone tried substituting applesauce for the eggs? I have heard that you can, but unsure how it would affect the cookie.
    1. Yes, applesauce is a great substitute for eggs. As a careprovider, I used to make cakes, muffins and other baked goods for my clients. No one can even taste the difference.

  9. Hi making them today with rice flour an no peanut butter just cut them in random shapes as no cutter in the oven , my German Shepherd following my every move
    1. You can use Bananas, my dogs go crazy for the cookies and I make. You can even mix pumpkin, plan yogurt with a little cinnamon. I use used yogurt cups. Fill to the top and once frozen you can give it to them. They will be busy between 5 to 30 minutes. The best thing once they are done you was the yogurt cup and reuse them.
    1. As long as you don't give your dog no more than 1/4 tsp per day. There are benefits of for your dog. Brain function, makes them smarter. Its an anti- inflammatory. Great for Senior dogs. With arthritis.
      1. Sorry for got to add. You can get more information from the website Dogster.com. That is were I got my information from. I also do not give my dogs that much in a day. I may use a 3rd of that in a batch of cookies of my puppy popps.
    1. I would cut it in half or cut the top off then scrape the seeds and stuff out. Set the oven on 350* and set pumpkin cut side down on a sheet of parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Then bake till it is soft, you can test it by sticking the pumpkin with a fork. You will want the pumpkin to be soft enough to scrape out of the pumpkin and mash or put in a blender. I tried boiling one once and it was a soggy mess. I grow butternut squash in my back yard every year and I think I will use one for the dog biscuits.
      1. All parts of pumpkin are healthy. I cut up pieces and remove seeds. Put chunks and pulp in crock pot. Cook until the skin soft and can poke or cut with fork and put in blender or shake maker and make puree. I put in jars and ziplock bags and freeze so I have pumpkin any time !
  10. I made these today and my yorkie wasn't interested, but a friend's pitbull loved them. She will probably eat one later. Very easy to make. Thank you
  11. Is there a printable version of this anywhere? Me and my daughter always cook things and we like to print out the recipes and put them in a binder

  13. Just made this for the second time. My dog loves these. I sohnle the recipe, divided it into three, and froze two. Then I have it ready to bake when we run out! Thank you!
    1. Ooooh! What a good idea! That way you don't lose the other pumpkin half when it's not pumpkin season. This reminds me I need to make another batch!
  14. Tried it and loved it <3 All three of my dogs ate them with pleasure and were begging for more :) Thanks for the recipe!
  15. Hi there, I'm making these for my pups today but was wondering how long they keep for? Would love to make a lot of them but wanted to check first so I don't waste them.
    1. Hello! I keep mine for at least two months in an air-tight container and in the fridge. But we also have three dogs and we blow right through them so they rarely last that long. Ha!
  16. I was wondering if these are a harder crunchy treat or a softer one. My pup doesn't like hard crunchy snacks only soft ones and it is hard to find a good recipe that is soft.
    1. Hi! They aren't super hard. I bet if you baked them a short amount of time they would be softer still. I would try, or maybe even just a half batch?
      1. I love this recipe. I baked these treats for family dogs and neighbors with dogs. I also made some substituting the whole eggs with egg whites and a little nonfat greek yogurt in this recipe. Good for overweight dogs. A little extra pumpkin, just a heaping tablespoon and baking a little less made them a little softer. I made some for a young, huge, very overweight Mastiff rescued by my local shelter with heart issues and bad teeth. Heartworm treatment is rough.
