Day of the Dead Dog Treats

Can you believe Halloween is less than two weeks away? Do you dress up your dog for Halloween? We are always last minute here with the Goldens but somehow seem to pull it off just in time.

One thing we never leave for last minute is the treats! A few months ago I came across a Day of the Dead silicone mold and I knew it would make a fun and healthy Halloween dog treat.

I love making these homemade frozen treats for the Goldens almost as much as they love eating them. It's an easy and quick way to get wholesome ingredients into your dog's diet because you know exactly what is in them. 

There are so many combinations of flavors you can use when it comes to these silicone molds. Today,  I decided to kick in up a bit and create three layers of the Goldens favorite food combos!

Triple Layer Day of the Dead Dog Treats

Before we get started, keep in mind that each of these layers will need to set up individually in the freezer. From start to finish these took me approximately 1 1/2 hours to make before the pups got their first taste.

Organic Ingredients: 
Plain Greek Yogurt, Coconut Oil, Pure Pumpkin, Cinnamon, Banana, Honey
Ingredients for Day of the Dead frozen dog treats
Step 1 - Combine 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt with a tablespoon of coconut oil and spoon into the mold and place in freezer for 30 minutes or until firm.

Step 2 - Stir 1/2 cup canned pure pumpkin and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon and spoon on top of the frozen yogurt layer. Place back in freezer for another 30 minutes or until firm.

Miley has been a counter-surfer since she was a pup stealing a baked potato off the counter so I knew she would be the first one to pop up for a taste.

What layer do you think your dog would like best? I'm pretty sure Miley's favorite would be the yogurt, Maggie's would be the banana and Bruin's would be the pumpkin.

Fueling Your Dog's Superpower #ChewyInfluencer

Does your dog think they have superpowers? I'm pretty sure this weekend Bruin thought that by the way he was jumping in our enormous pile of leaves in our yard. Just by the look of those ears, I'd say he has some kind of super-dog-power going on!

He could have spent hours in those leaves with his ball and of course some tasty treats to keep his energy up and fuel that superpower leaping ability he has!
