Pumpkin spice pretzels and a dog beer is a perfect way to enjoy the fall season with your pup. Also, it’s Oktoberfest! We dress up our dogs for Halloween and give them gifts for Christmas. Why not throw back a cold one with them too for one of the world’s largest beer celebrations? Your dog can celebrate Oktoberfest properly with my dog-friendly pretzel recipe and some refreshing Bowser dog beer.

Bowser Beer can be ordered online or found at your nearby pet store. There are actually lots of different dog beer brands available, so your dog can experiment with different tastes. Maybe he’d like a nice fruity cider or maybe he’s more of a sour beer type.
Don’t forget beer snacks! Pumpkin pretzels spiced with cinnamon is a perfect pairing with the chilly autumn days upon us. Imagine you and your dog, relaxing with your beers, watching the beautiful sunset over the golden leaves… Ok, maybe a bit far-fetched.
Dotti looks like she could use a beer. Maybe nobody would play with her at doggy daycare?.
Pumpkin Spice Pretzels
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 200 grams pumpkin puree
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- 1 egg
Preparation: 10 Cooking: 25 min Makes: 25 pretzels
- Mix the flour and cinnamon together in a large bowl.
- Beat the egg in a small bowl and set aside.
- Add the pumpkin puree and half of the beaten egg to the flour mixture. Mix until it makes a dough.
- Preheat oven to 350 F (175 C) and prepare a baking sheet
- Take a small piece of dough and roll it out into a long tube, 10 inches is good.
- Take each end to form a circle and twist the ends together. Fold the ends back to the bottom middle of the circle. I found this diagram quite useful.
- Place your pretzels on the baking sheet. Brush them over with the remaining egg mixture.
- Bake in the oven for 25 minutes.

Pumpkin aids in diarrhea and constipation, both ends of the spectrum! It also has cancer-preventing antioxidants and helps them to feel full longer with the extra fiber boost.
Tips & Tricks
* To get the “salted” look, sprinkle wheat germ on top after brushing with the egg before placing into the oven.
* You’ll have to experiment a bit with length and thickness to get the pretzel size that you like.
* If your dough is too dry, add some water bit by bit. If too wet, gradually add more flour.
