It’s finally spooky season, and we wouldn’t dream of leaving our pups out of all the Halloween fun. Call us crazy, but we totally think they deserve their own trick-or-treat bag full of goodies. After all, they have to watch us binge on Reese’s peanut butter cups and fun-size Snickers bars, so it’s only fair. (We totally would share our Halloween treats if we could, but chocolate and other candies are big fat no-no for our furry friends.)
So we did what any #extra dog mom would do and stuffed a tote bag with yummy dog-safe treats that we think embody the spirit of the season—and we threw in a Halloween-themed dog toy for good measure. Think your pup would drool over their own trick-or-treat bag? (That’s a trick question, of course they would!). Then here’s what to get your furry ghoul or goblin (just don’t let them pig out on it all at once!).
1. Bubba Rose Biscuit Co. Spookies Box Peanut Butter & Carob Treats
Baking’s not your thing? No problem! These treats from Bubba Rose Biscuit Co. look like you spent hours in the kitchen. All natural, they’re made with peanut butter (a tried-and-true doggy fave), carob and topped with a yogurt frosting. You’ll definitely want to post these picture-perfect cookies on Instagram—and your dog will definitely want to dig in.
2. Blue Buffalo Pumpkin & Cinnamon Boo Bars
Pumpkin is the flavor of the season, showing up in pies, lattes and yes, even dog treats. These spooky-shaped dog biscuits from Blue Buffalo are made with pumpkin and another fall staple—cinnamon. With other wholesome ingredients like oatmeal and flaxseed, you can feel good about giving these biscuits to your boo.
3. Beggin’ "Fun Size" Trick-or-Treat Variety Pack
Beggin’ Strips have gotten a miniature makeover—much like our own favorite treats this time of year. This variety pack includes six 1.2-ounce bags of fun-size original Beggin’ treats made with real bacon, and six 1.2-ounce bags of fun-size bacon and cheese flavor Beggin’ treats. Keep some for your dog and hand the rest out to furry trick-or-treaters. You’ll be every dog’s favorite house on the block for sure!
4. Nightmare Before Christmas Rawhide Free Dental Dog Treats
What’s the next best thing about Halloween besides all the yummy treats? Halloween movies! This Disney dog treat from Team Treatz is the perfect combo of both. Embossed with Jack Skellington the Pumpkin King and his faithful ghost-dog friend Zero from “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” these rawhide-free dental treats scrub your dog’s teeth while they snack. A dental aid dressed as a treat? That’s a neat trick.
5. Zuke's Mini Naturals Turkey & Pumpkin Recipe Dog Treats
Small in size but big on flavor, these mini dog treats are made from pumpkin and turkey, don’t contain corn, wheat or soy, and are less than 3 calories each. Their small size makes them perfect for dolling out during training sessions. And what better time to teach your dog a new trick than Halloween?
6. Frisco Halloween Candy Corn Dog Toys
While not an edible treat, these candy corn plush toys remind us of the real deal (and are much safer to give to your dog!). They come in a 3-pack, each with a squeaker and crinkle paper to encourage your pup to play. Toss one to your dog when trick-or-treaters come to the door to keep them occupied.
