10 spooky homemade Halloween treats you can make for your pup

These spooky snacks are nutritious and will keep your dog out of the candy bowl.

No one likes to be left out on Halloween, and that includes your pooch. Between all the people at the door and the mom dressing up in weird clothes, it’s always an exciting night for your dog.


When it comes to lick or treats, your dog shouldn’t be eating the candy kids get, especially chocolate (see our list of harmful foods for dogs here). But that doesn’t mean your pup should miss out on the fun.


DIY Halloween treats are worth the effort: you know exactly what healthy ingredients are inside, and you can custom-make the treats the size you like. Here are 10 ghoulish goodies you can try:

1. Banana Ghosts

  • 1 ¼ cup goat milk

  • 1 tsp honey
