Homemade goodies for Harrison

by Donna Cain


We love our dog Harrison and guests staying at the Captain Freeman Inn are always amazed at his personality, which is both friendly and quiet all at the same time. I have always believed in a diet that was natural and healthy and have been an advocate of the farm to table movement on Cape Cod. The other day I read an article about the awful ingredients that went into most dog goodies……I just decided to throw out the old goodies for Harrison and in with the new- all organic homemade dog bones! Only the best for our pooch. Just had to share the recipe for all of those dog loving guests reading this blog.


Pumpkin Dog Biscuits

2 eggs

1/2 cup pumpkin

2 Tablespoons dry milk

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 1/2 cup brown rice flour

1 teaspoon dried parsley

Preheat oven to 350

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and pumpkin until smooth. Stir in the dry milk, salt and dried parsley. Add brown rice flour gradually, combining with a spatula or hands to form a stiff, dry dough. Turn onto lightly floured surface and lightly knead unto three balls.

Roll dough between 1/4- 1/2″ depending on your dog’s chew preference:) Cut with a cookie cutter- we like to use a dog bone cutter. Place on cookie sheet, no greasing necessary. Pierce with a fork imprint.

Bake 20 minutes each side.

Makes about 50 medium biscuits.


Harrison is very happy!
