Wheat allergies are amongst the most common type of dog food allergies. Unfortunately there is a small percentage of dogs who aren’t only allergic to wheat they are allergic to all types of grain. If you happen to have a dog who falls into this category feeding them can sometimes seem like an impossible task. Well, it doesn’t have to be. While there are several dog food companies who produce grain free dog food and grain free dog treats, they can often be expensive and sometimes hard to find.
Because I have a friend whose English Bulldog had some of the most severe allergies that I have ever seen, I purposely dedicated a section of my website to a variety of homemade grain free dog treats recipes. Having published several dog cookbooks, I have access to quite a few grain free dog recipes and figured that I would share them with you.
The following recipe was written in honor of a sweet lab mix named Max. The recipe was taken from the first edition of The Collaborative Canine it is a grain free recipe for homemade dog treats. I included a video below for grain free dog food which I know a lot of you are looking for.
