In addition to cooler temperatures and falling leaves, the autumn months offer a number of delicious treats for dogs. Though our furry friends can’t partake in Halloween candy or Thanksgiving dinner, there are plenty of seasonal snacks for them to enjoy.
A fall favorite like pumpkin pairs perfectly with a year-round crowd pleaser like peanut butter in these dog-safe autumn snacks.
