4 Spooktacular Halloween Dog Treat Recipes

Trick or treat!

Halloween is coming up in less than two weeks, which means it’s almost time for mini ghosts and ghouls to come knock, knock, knocking at your door, wide eyed and sugar high with bags and buckets waiting to be filled with treats.

While it’s a tradition to offer the neighborhood kids a piece of candy (or five), their four-legged companions often go unrewarded. How unfair is that? This year, have a separate bowl filled with Halloween dog treats ready to pass out to the canine trick-or-treaters who ring your doorbell. Costumed or not, all well-behaved pups deserve a special treat on the spookiest night of the year. Here are a few simple recipes you can whip up just in time for October 31st.

We hope these Halloween dog treats have inspired you to consider your four-legged neighbors this Halloween. After all, dogs are trick-or-treaters, too! Please keep in mind that some dogs have food allergies, so it’s best to print a list of the ingredients you use and tape them to each treat (or hand the owner a slip of paper with the info). Tip: If you’re short on time and still want to have a festive offering for pups in costume, simply decorate store-bought dog biscuits with some Fido Frosting in festive colors and designs.
