Halloween sweets, especially chocolate, can be toxic for dogs. But that doesn’t mean your pooch has to miss out on the treats — make them some dog-friendly spooky Halloween treats instead.

These quick and easy recipes are great as a training reward and to have on hand to distract your dog from human snacks.

Recipe 1: Pumpkin spice and peanut butter spookies


  • 1 sweet potato
  • 140g wholewheat flour
  • 140g peanut butter (must be xylitol free)
  • 1 cooking pumpkin 
  • Pinch of cinnamon 


  • Puree pumpkin 
  • Peel and chop the sweet potato

When you make these tasty biscuits, reduce your dog’s usual food portion so they’re not overfed. Some dogs could have sensitivities to the ingredients, so these might not be suitable for all pooches. If you’re concerned about giving your dog new foods speak to your vet.
