Healthy Homemade Dog Treats

Healthy homemade dog treats are easy to make. These recipes include natural ingredients and are wheat-free for dogs with a food allergy.

Proper nutrition and weight management are important for your dog’s overall health. Please consult your veterinarian if you have questions about what you should feed your dog.

Baked biscuits are great any time of year and the frozen treats will be delightfully cool on a hot summer day.
