Sugar Pumpkins?

Are they safe for a puppy to play with and eat?

I feed lucy the canned pumpkin stuff from the store (libby's) and I also gave her small pieces of the pumpkin i carved to snack on.

I think it should be fine just don't let him eat the whole thing. I don't know how long a pumpkin is going to last a shepherd puppy... 5 maybe 10 minutes of fun/quiet..?

I would think it would be ok except I would be concerned about them eating the whole thing. Pumpkin is good for both constipation and diarrhea so to much might make them constipated? I would google.

Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or play with it, pee on it and walk away.

I give mine canned pumpkin every now and then, but not sure if that is the same. Your pup is sooo cute!

Take it away if he/she gets to the seeds, most seeds are dangerous.

Canned pure pumpkin is great when need the help settle their stomach. I think a few weeks ago there was a thread going around and some posters had pics of their dogs playing with gourds and pumpkins. Good point about seeds....not sure on that.

Those lil pumpkins are pie pumkins. Pumkins are fine in moderation, most dogs won't eat a whole one. My dogs had a blast playing, rolling the pumkins around. They chewed, shredded destroyed them more than ate them.
