2-Ingredient Puffy Pumpkin Dog Treats
These 2-ingredient Puffy Pumpkin Dog Treats are great for puppies, dogs who love pumpkin, as well as older dogs or dogs with dental issues. Homemade pumpkin dog treats with pumpkin are low fat, but not as active.
Plus pumpkin has significant health benefits for dogs.
I made these 2 ingredient pumpkin bone shaped dog treats a while back when I made the Frozen Pumpkin Paw Print Dog Treats. I have yet to meet a dog (or human!) who did not like pumpkin dog treats.
🐕 Making Puffy Pumpkin Dog Treats
DIY pumpkin dog treats are less expensive than store-bought treats, such as our 30-minute peanut butter and pumpkin dog treats. Knowing what is in my dogs will make me feel better about what I feed them.
This recipe for pumpkin dog treats is very easy to make (or should be easy to make).
Dog bones are as simple as mixing, rolling, and cutting. You won't believe how easy they are to make.
💭 Soft Puffy Pumpkin Dog Treats
Despite being soft, this dough isn't sticky. It is easy to work with, and quite forgiving as well. Which is helpful, because let’s be honest – we want to make these treats and don’t want it to be a huge hassle.
It will puff up after baking, but the treats will remain soft. Their moist texture and hint of sweetness is made possible by pumpkin.
🥣 Tools for Making Pumpkin Dog Treats
There are a few tools you'll need to make this recipe. Everything you need is probably already in your possession.
Just in case you don’t, this is what you’ll need:
- Dog Bone Cookie Cutter

✨ How to Store Pumpkin Dog Treats
During cooler, less humid months, you can store these treats on the counter in a cute treat jar for a week or two.
Warm and humid climates might only allow you to keep them on the counter for a few days before storing them in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
You can also freeze them and take a few out at a time, which is what I do most of the time.
✔️ Give your Pumpkin Dog Treats as a Gift
In addition, you can give these homemade pumpkin dog treats as a gift. I like to make small dog treat bags and give them to my neighbors and friends who have dogs.
It would be nice to get homemade dog biscuits if you see the same neighbors walking their dogs in the neighborhood or at the dog park.
It's also a nice thing to do for someone (which we could all use more of). In addition, their dogs would love it.
