Where Dog Lovers Meet and Bark

Easy homemade Halloween Dog Treats!

Last year when we baked pumpkin peanut butter cookies for our pooch Jasper, he went crazy, over-the-moon, happy over them, so this year, we decided to share the goodness and happiness with you!

For those of you who don’t like to bake because it involves too much science, don’t worry! This recipe requires few ingredients and is easy to make. So even if you mess it up, your pup will still appreciate the love. Also, it will make your house smell delicious, so you still win.

Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Pooch Treats

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup fresh or canned pumpkin (not seasoned pie filling)
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup water as needed

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Whisk together flour, baking powder, pumpkin, peanut butter and cinnamon in a bowl.

3. Add water as needed, but the dough should be stiff and dry.

4. Roll to 1/2 inch thick and cut with holiday cookie cutters. (or just break up the dough into little pieces and flatten.)

5. Bake for about 40 minutes, or until hard.

Let the treats cool completely, then watch as your pup gobbles them down! We won’t judge you if you’re tempted to try them, too. Go ahead and share one with your best furiend!

These will be great to have on hand for any furry trick-o-treaters who come knocking this year! You can package them up in cute jars for a fun holiday gift, too. Just swap out the Halloween cutters for Christmas ones, and they’d make a pawfect stocking stuffer for the ones you love most.

Special Note: These treats should not replace your pet’s regular meals. Please check with your veterinarian if your pet has special dietary needs or food allergies.

JasperandZoe.com Adds Merrick to its Product Lines!

JasperandZoe.com is thrilled to now offer Merrick treats in our online store!

We decided to add Merrick to our products, because it fits with our philosophy of providing high quality, all natural treats to our four-legged best friends. Merrick’s innovative and unique treats have been given to pets by the owners that love them for over 10 years now. Merrick prides itself on being a leader in the treat industry, starting with the highest quality cattle, and a lot of imagination.

One of many Merrick treats our Jasper loves, which we are confident your dogs will love too, is Merrick’s bones and bully stix.  They are smoked, cooked, natural, stuffed, wrapped, plain and meaty.  They come in all shapes and sizes, just like our four legged friends.

  
And ears.  Really?  Yes, ears!  They are a favorite among many dogs.  Jasper can’t get enough of them.  Dogs of all sizes and ages enjoy packing these things around the yard.  Merrick ears come in smoked or natural flavors and are available in lamb, beef, and even pork.  Merrick’s natural ears will keep your dog entertained for hours on end.  you will keep them out of trouble as long as you keep these original Texas treats on hand!

The Flossies Spiral Chews still turn dog’s heads.  These are the bestsellers.  This is the one treat Jasper always treasures.  The Flossies help fight plague build up as well.  This is just one example of many of Merrick’s all natural products that are fun for the dog while being healthy at the same time.

We hope you will enjoy the Merrick treats as much as we have, especially Jasper!
