Wheat Free Dog Biscuits Recipe

Servings:

Makes 40 biscuits.

Description:

We have 6 times as many taste buds as our canine friends, which may go some way towards explaining some of the disgusting things they will eat. They are also much less keen on salty foods, meaning we can omit this flavour enhancer from their foods and they won’t miss it one bit. We all know those fussy little dogs who refuse to eat anything but BBQ chicken, but most dogs are not that fussy. We need to make healthy choices for them, ensuring they have variety and balance in their diet.  These biscuits are a great, healthy treat and great for dogs on a wheat-free diet.
