If your dog enjoys pumpkin as much as those of us climbing over each other to suck down a pumpkin spice latte, then boy do we have a list for you. Besides being THE flavor of fall, plain canned pumpkin doubles as an easy way to ease dogs’ tummy troubles, and is low-calorie to boot. Pumpkin truly deserves to be a year-round favorite for people & pups alike.
A dollop of whipped cream makes everything better, but any dog will settle for the tummy-friendly yogurt icing spread on this pup-pie. You don’t need your pup’s nose to catch the pumpkin and peanut butter aromas either—it’s as if this pie was just pulled from the oven to cool in an open window. We can get totally get behind dessert before dinner.
Your dog doesn’t care if it’s sweltering or frigid outside, this fuzzy beverage is perfect for any weather. Curl up by the fireplace with the Puggin’ Spice Latte toy—it’s calorie and dairy-free despite the healthy serving of whipped cream, and it’s chock full of squeakers and fluff.
Fruitables has a soft-spot for (crunchy) pumpkin treats, because these pumpkin & banana delicacies are just one of FOUR delish pumpkin flavors your little punkin’ will love. (That was FOUR mentions of pumpkin in one sentence!) Made in the USA & only a handful of calories per treat, dogs don’t have to feel guilty about going back for seconds.
Everything else is pumpkin spice-ified, why not a donut? ZippyPaws’ famous squeaky, stuffing-free donuts come in a variety of ~flavors~, and this one’s definitely entered the ring as one of our favorites.
I’m a huge fan of the Good Reasons company, and not just because they dish out some amazing US-made treats—it’s really about where they come from. Good Reasons is super dedicated to providing jobs and teaching skills to people with autism and so many other disabilities, and they’re 100% non-profit.
Afraid of burning your tongue on your latte? Try these vanilla, pumpkin, & cinnamon treats from Mutt Mallows. True to their name, they’re soft and fluffy (just like a marshmallow) and full of flavor (yeah, we tried them. So what?). Just take a whiff and you and your dog will be instantly transported to the best parts of the fall season.
We couldn’t have a pumpkin list without including a pumpkin purée. You always want to use plain canned pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling as a food supplement; the latter is full of sugar and other spices that will probably aggravate that tummy-ache. Just mix in a spoonful with your dog’s regular meal, and it will firm up (or loosen up) his stool depending on the issue at hand. Pumpkin is magical, isn’t it?
Please don’t give your dog actual pumpkin pie. Just don’t. Fortunately, our pups don’t have to feel completely left out of the next pie fest. Pepper is willing to share her plush pumpkin pie slice, complete with a squeaker baked right into the filling and inside that beautiful dollop of whipped cream.
