Fun Ways To Give Dogs Halloween Treats

homemade-dog-treats-for-halloweenWhether you give four-legged trick-or-treaters ‘regular’ dog biscuits this Halloween or special homemade ones, you’ll need to decide in advance how you will give them to the dogs.

Some ideas:

  • Give the dog biscuit directly to the dog owner to give to their dog now. This is the easiest option, since no extra planning is needed.
  • Wrap a dog biscuit in a small Halloween decorated bag and hand it to the dog owner to give to the dog later. If you made the dog treats yourself, consider including the actual recipe. You’ll make the dog owner’s day!
  • Place a Halloween dog treat in a see-thru snack-size baggie. That way, it’s obvious to the dog owner (and the children) that this treat is intended for dogs. With the right markers or paints, you could make small Halloween decorations right on the plastic baggie for a simple, fun touch.
