Easy Halloween Treat Bags for Dogs

This is the first Halloween for Charlie, our King Charles Cavalier, and our first ever Halloween with a puppy in tow. Since he came into our lives last winter, he’s become very much apart of our family and goes wherever we go. Camping, on walks, school pickups, we involve him in our usual day-to-day events. He’ll even be in the Christmas card photo this year!

So it only goes without saying that Charlie will very much be apart of our Halloween festivities this year. Even though Halloween is still weeks away, I’ve been thinking about how to celebrate involve him in our Halloween celebration. Of course he’ll have a cute costume for the traditional trick or treating, though there’s so many adorable options –  I just can’t decide on what he should be!

I recall from previous years that many kids come to the door trick or treating, with their families and their dogs with them. So, why shouldn’t dogs get a special treat too? They should be actively apart of all the excitement as well!

This Halloween I’ll be prepared with treats for the kids, and the furry friends who come to our door – with these Halloween Treat Bags for Dogs which are so super simple to make!

All you need is some small burlap bags {frugal buy at the dollar store}, a black permanent marker, festive Halloween ribbon, and some Big Heart Pet Brands {Milk-Bone, Pup-Peroni and/or Milo’s Kitchen} dog treats.

Take each burlap bag and using the black permanent marker, draw some paw prints on the front. Easy peesy!

Then, fill each bag with some delicious dog treats. Our Charlie loves Milk-Bone, Pup-Peroni and Milo’s Kitchen – so I chose both the hard Milk-Bone biscuits and the soft treats, as well as some Pup-Peroni. You might have to snap the Pup-Peroni in half to fit into the bag.

As you can see, Charlie was very curious as to what I was doing with his favourite treats, and made sure to supervise what I was doing. His assistance in this easy DIY project was rewarded! Mmmm!
