Homemade Pumpkin Dog Treats

Yield 36 biscuits

Recipe from Cesar Millan at



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix the pumpkin, molasses, vegetable oil, and water together in a bowl.
  3. Add the whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon to the mixture and stir until the dough softens.
  4. Scoop out small spoonfuls of dough {about 1 inch wide} and roll them into balls with your hands {wet hands work best}.
  5. Set the balls onto a lightly greased cookie sheet and flatten them with a fork.
  6. For hard treats, bake for approximately 25 minutes.  For softer, “pull-apart,” chewy treats, bake for 10 minutes.


Storage:Your treats can last for at least 2 months in the refrigerator or 8 months in the freezer.  Just make sure to seal them in an airtight container.
