If you’re looking for a great healthy treat for your dog this Halloween night, but don’t want to mess around with baking your own pumpkin treats, just follow this simple technique… as your carving your artistic creation, scoop out the insides of the squash and set aside in a bowl (be sure to remove the seeds). Store bought canned pumpkin is okay too. Heat up on the stove top to cook thoroughly and throw a couple of Tablespoons in his/her dinner. You’ve got a festive Halloween meal custom-made for Fido! Of course it’s best for dogs to earn their treats this time of year, by dressing up and performing their favorite tricks!
