Drool Dog Recipe: Pumpkin Puppucinos by Kirby the Dorkie

Pumpkin Puppucino

 

Best Bully Sticks has been fortunate to partner with Kirby the Dorkie featuring the Canine Chef Cookbook for several years. Debby and Kirbie have developed tons of fantastic dog treat recipes that we love to share with our readers!

Since it is fall, and the month of October makes many of us think everything pumpkin, we decided to feature a sweet treat reminiscent of the oh-so-popular Pumpkin Spice Latte– it’s the dog-friendly Pumpkin Puppucino! This easy snack for dogs may be served warmed or chilled and requires very little prep time!

This recipe is found in the newly published Canine Chef Cookbook, featuring over 100 dog treat and dog food recipes, now available on Amazon.

 

Ingredients

– One 15 oz can pumpkin puree*

– 1 cup plain greek yogurt

– 2 teaspoons cinnamon

– 1 teaspoon ground gingerKirby master chef

– 1 teaspoon vanilla

– 2 tablespoons maple syrup or honey

* Be sure to use pumpkin puree and NOT pumpkin pie filling.

 

For Instructions, see Kirby’s Pumpkin Puppucino recipe.

 
Many thanks to Kirby and Debby for sharing this tasty delight!

Drool Dog Recipe: Birthday Ice Cake for Dogs

IMG_3807_facebooksizeDogs love an occasional icy treat, which is just what we at Best Bully Sticks did to celebrate the birthday of Tuesday, our resident Great Dane puppy who turned 1!

We decided to incorporate one of our new exciting products, Chloe’s Sustainable Protein Treats, into our birthday cake. These fun, start-shaped dog biscuits are actually made of cricket protein! Crickets are a sustainable source of protein, iron, and amino acids, and the crickets used in Chloe’s treats are human grade. Chloe’s Treats are hypoallergenic dog treats with no eggs, corn, grains, or soy and come in delicious flavor combinations like Sweet Potato & Cinnamon, Peanut Butter & Turkey Bacon, Peanut Butter & Banana, and Apple & Turmeric. For Tuesday’s Birthday Ice Cake, we used the Peanut Butter & Turkey Bacon variety.

 

Now for the Instructions!PB bacon chloes

  1. Choose a medium size mixing bowl and line with the top layer of treats. In our case we chose Chloe’s Treats for their fun shape. Put just enough water in to cover the layer of treats and freeze.
  2. Once that layer is frozen, lay the treats you have chosen for the middle section against the sides of the bowl (you want your dog to be able to smell the treat). Fill with a thin layer (1/4 in.) of water and freeze them into place.
  3. Once that layer has been frozen, add the remaining water to fill the bowl. You want to leave at least an inch of room at the top of the bowl because it will swell as it freezes.
  4. When you are ready to give the treat to your dog, you can run the outside of the bowl under warm water to loosen it from the bowl.

Pro tip: Choose a bowl with an interesting shape. Decorative bundt cake pans are a great way to do this!
