Ruff be real here, pumpkin season has begun. You know holiday season is right around the corner.  Holiday treats are a big part of the season.  We all love tasty treats, so do your dogs. Why not do some baking for your dog as well? Here are a few recipes you can whip up for your buddy.

Peanut Butter & Pumpkin Treats:

Pumpkin pie, you can’t give your dog a slice of your pie, but you can make them some special pumpkin treats. Turns out, pumpkin is great for dogs—there is a good amount of fiber and beta-carotene. Dog bodies take beta-carotene and convert it to vitamin A. Pumpkin also helps with diarrhea and constipation.

Make some of these delicious goodies for you dog and they’ll be giving you kisses for days.
