Halloween Idea - no 2


1 cup tinned pumpkin

1 cup yogurt (can use low fat or even greek yogurt)

1 cup peanut butter


(you can use more pumpkin and less peanut butter to keep your dogs trimmer

Halloween Idea - no 3 - Pumpkin Soup (for you and your dog)


  • 900g pumpkin

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

  • 900ml chicken/vegetable stock

  • 1 tsp ground ginger

  • 2 tbsp single cream/crème fraiche

  • 1 tsp ground coriander

  • 1 bunch of coriander leaves



  1. If you're carving a pumpkin, remove the flesh (and separate the seeds) in whatever way you see fit. If not, then peel the pumpkin, remove the seeds, and cut the flesh into chunks.

  2. Heat the oil in a pan, add the ginger and ground coriander. Stir for a minute.

  3. Add the pumpkin and stock to the pan, bring to the boil, then simmer gently till the pumpkin is tender (20-30 minutes).

  4. Remove from the heat, roughly chop the coriander leaves, and stir them in together with the cream. Let everything cool for about 30 minutes.

  5. Remove about a cup of liquid (and set aside for later), then blend the rest till it’s smooth. If it's too thick, you can add back some of the liquid.

  6. Scoop some of the soup into your dog's TreatToob, and let him / her enjoy.

  7. Fry the onion and garlic, and blend them, together with the remainder of the liquid, into the soup. Reheat and enjoy.


For you:

8.  Fry a chopped onion and a crushed clove of garlic, and blend them, together with the remainder of the liquid, into the soup (just don't give the soup with the onion and garlic to your dog). The rest is now for you to enjoy.

Note: Onions are poisonous for dogs. Garlic is not great to give them either.

Simple and quick ideas


Cream cheese; Liver paste; Peanut butter; or even some baby foods (as long as they are completely natural, no onion powder etc.).



What about mixing some cooked chicken with cream cheese.



What about mixing some cream cheese with canned tuna or a little flaked salmon.

Veggie Recipes


You can puree some boiled, roasted or steamed veggies, which your dogs will love. Try celery; carrots; tomato; bell peppers; sweet potato; squash; butternut; pumpkin; or potato.  You can also try asparagus spears; broccoli; and green marrows.


If you cook the veggies into a stew with some meat or chicken, your dogs will love you that little bit more. 


You can also mix veggies with some Parmesan cheese, or some cooked rice or pasta (as long as your dog does not have a gluten problem).




Scrambeled egg or omelette are also good options.



There are also some fruits which are healthy for your dogs to eat:  grated apple (without the seeds), banana, watermelon, cantaloupe, strawberry, some blueberries or orange. You can mix in a little cottage cheese or unsweetened yogurt (nothing with artificial sweeteners please).


What about a mixture of peanut butter and bananas.

Hot day treats


Why not puree some fruits, fill the TreatToob, and leave the TreatToob in the freezer overnight. When the treats defrost a little, your dog will have a lovely iced treat to snack on.


As you can see, as long as you avoid foods that are no good for your pets, you can be quite adventurous with the TreatToob. If you have other suggestions, please email them to us or post them on facebook. We'd love to hear about them.
