Freehart's Weimaraners
An Accomplished Southern California Weimaraner Breeder.
Do you like to cook for your Weimaraner? Well here in California you can find a doggy bakery on almost
every corner. But why buy commercially processed foods when you can make all natural tailor made
diets/treats to suit your Weimaraner's needs. Below you'll find a few simple recipes to try at home








Apples, Cinnamon, Sweet Potatoes, Pumpkin…We go crazy for lattes, pie, cookies, candles, everything and anything containing
those ingredients or scents. All the while, someone close to you is feeling very left out. Your best friend! Staring at you with those
big eyes (I have an expert beggar on my hands), hoping you’ll be kind enough to share a bite.

Don’t leave your dog out when you’re celebrating the tastes of the seasons! Apples, sweet potatoes, and pumpkin are actually all
very common ingredients in homemade dog treats. Dogs love these flavors and they are really healthy for your pup. Homemade dog
treats are super simple to make and you can easily tailor the recipe for any special diets. So next time you’re in the baking mood,
whip up a quick batch of healthy homemade dog treats for your pooch!





























Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dog Treats

Yield: About 2 dozen small treats

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 30-40 minutes

Total Time: 35-40 minutes

Ingredients:


1 cup pumpkin puree
2 eggs
1/2 cup oats (optional if your dog is on a grain free diet, sub an extra 1/4 cup grain free flour)
3 cups whole wheat flour, brown rice flour, or gluten free flour
3 Tbsp of all natural peanut butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)




Directions:



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In small bowl, stir together the flour, oats, and cinnamon
In a separate large bowl, whisk together the eggs, pumpkin and peanut butter until combined. Stir wet ingredients into dry.
Pour onto a floured surface and roll dough out to 1/2 thick. Cut out using cookie cutter. The dough will be a little sticky, a dusting
of flour for your hands and the rolling pin will help! Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until golden brown.
Place on cooling racks and let cool thoroughly. They will harden as they cool.

Notes:


*These are the treats that are pictured.
*1/2 tsp of salt can be added to these treats to help extend the shelf life but, it is optional.
*Cinnamon is fine to use in recipes for dogs, however do not use a pumpkin spice blend or anything that could contain nutmeg. It is
toxic to dogs and even in small amounts can make them sick.
