There are many people turning to making their own wheat free dog treats.
Just like humans, some dogs have food alergies.
Many allergies come from eating wheat; others from consuming dairy products, or both.
Below is a wheat and dairy free dog biscuit recipe.
Each can be made into fun shapes of your choosing.
They may be shaped into people or dog bones, for special occasions cookie cutters can be used to represent the event.
Two benefits of baking your own dog biscuits are:
- You know what ingredients are used and
- it is less expensive than store bought dog biscuits.
In addition to wheat free, dairy free dog treat recipes, there are also vegetarian dog treat recipes.
