FALL Recipes

featured chef: @munching.maggie

Crisp blue skies, crunchy leaves—and all that crispy crunchiness is enough to make anybody hungry. Especially your fuzzbuddy. Then again, in a dog’s world? It’s always snack-o-clock.





Meat Lover’s Pumpkin Pie

Nothing says “grateful” like pumpkin pie, but you know what dogs are thinking: “where’s the beef?” Pair fall’s classic dessert with a lively, liver-y beefy kick, and you’ve basically checked off a dog’s whole gratitude journal.

Pooch Boost!

Pumpkin packs prebiotic fiber. Healthy gut bacteria FEAST on prebiotics, and healthy bacteria mean healthy pets. Pumpkiny fiber helps clean the colon and lower its ph, creating just the right environment for healthy bacteria to thrive.

After Thanksgiving Bison Bite

Thanksgiving’s a dog’s holiday: good cooking smells, extra pats from guests, and everybody’s a pushover for puppy dog eyes. But what’s even better? The next day, with all the low-effort leftovers. (Mmmm. Leftovers.) Throw them together, and it’s Thanksgiving all over again for your pupperoo.

Ingredients & Materials
  • 1/4 C Turkey (or any leftover poultry)
  • 1/2 C Kibble

Puzzle Toys
Directions
  1. Toss your pup’s favorite kibble at the bottom of the Rumbl.
  2. Pack that baby full of shredded poultry, green beans, sweet potato cubes, cranberries and West Paw Bison Treat (broken into small nibbles).
  3. Serve, lazily (then get some leftovers for yourself.).

Nutritional Nod

Bison packs in more protein, iron, and B-12 than beef, pork, chicken, or salmon—all with lower calories, cholesterol, and fat. (Dogs just dig that big beast flavor.)

Haunted Hall-Oat-Ween

Trick or treat! This breakfasty bite is both, with a ghoulish ice-cube trick that will send delicious shivers down your dog’s spine. Plus, the haunting swirl of fall spices and honey sweetness might just distract your furbaby long enough to wriggle on their costume…

  2. Top with unsweetened dried cranberries, pepitas, flax seed, and a few spirits from your spooky Halloween ice cube mold.
  3. Freeze (optional) and serve with some good ghosty noises.

Wellness Woof!

Kick up the challenge by connecting a small and large Toppl together to keep your pupper entertained longer. After your dog has (finally!) devoured the goods, toss Toppl in the dishwasher.

Chicken Noodless Soup

Pop Qwizl: what’s tastier than noodles, packs protein, and delivers all nine amino acids? Quinoa! And it shines in this twist on a classic fall soup. Skip the sloppiness of soup by turning it into a neat treat in the freezer—or take out the broth and poof! Grain salad.

Ingredients & Materials
  • 1/4 C Chicken - boiled
  • 1 C Chicken bone broth
  • 1/4 C Cooked Quinoa
  • 2 Carrots (peeled and chopped)
  • 2 Celery Stalks (chopped)

FEATURING

Qwizl®
Puzzle Toys
Directions

Speed prep

  1. No ice cube tray? No problem. Add the shredded chicken and chopped veggies into the Qwizl on their own.

Freezer prep

  1. Shred cooked chicken into small pieces and distribute across a narrow ice cube tray.
  2. Add in a layer of cooked quinoa, chopped carrots and celery. (Meh on celery? Some dogs love peas instead.)
  3. Fill each mold with bone broth until all ingredients are covered. Freeze for at least 1 hour.
  4. Once frozen, release molds from the tray and add to the Qwizl.

Senior Moment

Qwizl is a good pick for older dogs, because it doesn’t roll around. Plus, they can grip it in their paws and solve the puzzle lying down—comfily, happily entertained.
