Homemade dog treats are a great way to avoid by-products and other unhealthy ingredients found in processed treats. They can also be made for dogs with diet restrictions, such as allergies. This is my favorite recipe for homemade dog treats, especially this time of year! My dogs absolutely love these easy-to-make treats and I like knowing they are much healthier than store-bought goodies. These treats are wheat-free as it’s a healthier option overall for dogs. Many dogs have wheat allergies, a common ingredient in dog biscuits and food. I hope your dogs enjoy these as much as Scarlett and Harley!
