Pumpkin Pie for Thanksgiving

We wanted to give and make all our doggie customers something special for Thanksgiving, the first thing that came to mind was doggie pumpkin pie. We found this recipe:

Mini Pumpkin Pies


  • 16 oz. can of pumpkin (plain)
  • 8 oz. plain low-fat yogurt
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour, or a mixture of all-purpose and whole wheat flour 
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1/4 cup applesauce, unsweetened
  • 3 – 4 Tbsp. water


  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. Mix oatmeal and flour together in a food processor.
  3. Add applesauce slowly, continuing to run the processor.
  4. Add water slowly, using only enough to make a ball (too much will make the dough sticky).
  5. Spray wax paper and muffin tin with olive or vegetable oil cooking spray.
  6. Roll out dough onto wax paper and cut out 8 circles, about 4″ across (or divide dough into 8 small balls before rolling out).
  7. Press individual circles into bottom and sides of muffin tin.
  8. Bake for 8 minutes.
  9. Let crusts cool, then remove from the muffin tin.
  10. Fill each crust with about 1/4 cup (2 ounces) of canned pumpkin.
  11. Top with a dollop of yogurt.

Why socialization is so important

Socializing your dog is very important, to avoid bad or unwanted behavior from your dog, whether it's with people or other dogs. Socializing is much easier if you can start while your dog is still a puppy. Once it reaches a year old, you should continue to socialize your dog so it doesn't later develop unwanted behavior down the line. Even when life gets busy it's still really important to have your dog go on walks and have some interaction with the outside world. It will help your dog cope and react positively with any new changes or experiences down the line.

Here are a few links that go into more detail about socialization:

Preventing your dog from having Roundworm

Roundworms are most likely the kind of worms dogs get most. And there are several things to keep in mind, to prevent your dog from getting them:

  • Don't let your dog eat wild animals or rodents
  • Don't let your dog eat feces
  • Always clean up after your dog's feces
  • This one's hard, since dog's are constantly sniffing the ground, but try as much as possible to keep your dog's nose off the ground. So they can't pick up anything that could potentially give them worms.

Natural Round Worm Remedy

You can tell your dog has roundworm when you see worm-spaghetti looking creatures in your dog's stool. Medications for Roundworm can be really harsh on your dogs body, especially if they're a young pup. As soon as you see the signs, you can try out this all natural remedy, for at least 3 weeks:

  • Add half garlic clove - 2 garlic cloves minced to each meal, depending on size of dog. 
  • Add 2- 3 teaspoons of oat bran to their food, depending on size of dog.

If your dog won't eat their food with garlic and oatbran, try adding it to some peanut butter. What dog doesn't love peanut butter?

This is a remedy that has worked on one of our dogs, he was also a large dog, so he was given a little extra servings of garlic and oat bran. If your dog doesn't improve after 3 weeks, or gets worse, bring your dog to the veterinarian.
