Before my son was born, my dogs were my babies. Now ... well, not much has changed, except that there's a third set of hands for belly rubs now.

My dogs still get lots of treats, exercise and attention. They each have a winter coat. They get Christmas presents (from me, AND from Grandmom!). When I make homemade pancakes, the dogs get one, too. They get frozen treats in the summer, and homemade treats all year round. When our son was born, we made sure the dogs still got enough attention by hiring a dog walker through Rover.com.

My dogs love pumpkin almost as much as I do. Well, no, I don't know that for sure. But they do seem to get just a little more excited for pumpkin treats than any other flavor.

I swear, when I started making the dough for these biscuits, the dogs knew it was going to be for them. They are generally pretty apathetic when I start baking, but this time, they came running to watch what I was doing.

If your dog can't have grains, substitute an equal amount of almond flour, chickpea flour, or coconut flour for the white whole wheat flour. Sweet potato puree can also be substitute for the pumpkin.

You can cut these into any shape you like. I happened to have a bone-shaped cookie cutter in my collection, but you gingerbread men would be cute, too. If you have a smaller dog, you might want to use a small circle, roll them a little thinner, and cut the baking time to about 20 minutes. If your friends or family have dogs, you can wrap up a dozen or so and give them as a holiday gift.

Can applesauce be used instead of grating an apple and if so how much do you think?

Not that they'll last long in my house, but how long are they good for?

It depends on how you store them. They'll stay good for about two weeks in an airtight container at room temperature.

These should be a hit!!! I'm looking for softer treats for my 14 yr old Blue Heeler/Wolf ... unfortunately, his teeth have been worn down in a few places & I don't want him to have any pain :)

Hi, Can't wait to make these. Do I have to use whole wheat flour? Thank you, Marilyn

You can use regular all-purpose flour, if your dog isn't sensitive to it.
