Holiday Dog Treat Recipe - Pumpkin Carrot Bites

The Holidays are here and that usually means lots of tasty treats and good things to eat. While many of the things people eat for the Holiday season are tasty, some of them are not good for our dogs to eat. There are lots of Holiday foods that can make dogs sick. So what's a dog parent to do?

Why not whip up some extra special Holiday dog treats for your pup? Today, we're sharing a super simple homemade dog treat recipe that's sure to have your pooch begging for more.

Pumpkin Carrot Bites - Holiday Dog Treat Recipe

  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin (get the kind that has ONLY pumpkin in it)
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour 

Cooking Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. Stir pumpkin, egg, carrots and flour in a large bowl until moistened. 
  3. Roll the batter into small balls and place on a baking sheet. 
  4. Bake for 30 - 35 minutes. 

This dog treat recipe yields approximately four dozen Pumpkin Carrot Bites. We recommend storing these treats in your refrigerator for longer shelf life. 

See how super simple that is? Including your dog during the Holiday festivities in a safe way doesn't have to be complicated!

Our Pumpkin Carrot Bites for dogs are crispy on the outside and chewy in the middle. What does Shiner think of these homemade dog treats? She loves them and keeps begging for more! 

We'd also like to wish all of our friends who celebrate a safe and Happy Thanksgiving! 


  1. Happy Thanksgiving! These look like a great treat! My dogs love carrots and pumpkin.

  2. Those looks great! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  3. Nice yum you got there Shiner! Happy Thanksgiving from all of us!

  4. Those sound good. I'm not a carrot fan, but love pumpkin, so maybe I would eat them if the carrots aren't so obvious. My sisters would love these for sure. Happy Thanksgiving!

    1. I think the carrot is pretty subtle. We only shredded up a few baby carrots very finely and mixed them in with this.

    2. R they supposed to be super wet

    3. I remember them being rather dry after being baked actually. Slightly moist in the middle, with a crunchy exterior. If your dough is too wet, you could try adding some more flower possibly until it seems like a good consistency.

  5. That's a super recipe and the color is great too! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Shiner and furmily!

  10. Dogs always are begging for more. MOL! Happy Thanksgiving!

  11. Now you know... I'm hosting a very unique Christmas meal this year. My adult children along with Doodle Dad and a few good friends plan to play games and eat little finger foods all evening long. These would go great as a "paw food" for Harley so he doesn't feel left out. Thanks

    1. I was able to trick both my daughter and boyfriend into eating one LOL! I told my daughter they were cookies, and my boyfriend thought they were fried okra. They weren't super tasty for human taste buds, but won't hurt them anyways ;)
