Our Dogs Loved this Homemade Dog Treat Recipe
I tested this dog treat recipe for Baked Carrot Slices yesterday (a special treat for our two dogs) and they both loved it!
I was a bit worried about whether or not our Ridgeback, Harley, would react to the wheat flour (she's pretty sensitive with her food and has had some dog food allergies) but so far no allergic reaction and she gobbled her two treats down very quickly.
Our other dog, a 10 year old Boxer/Bulldog cross, is not sensitive to food allergies but has lost a couple of teeth and needs food that's not so hard to chew. She really enjoyed this treat - especially because she used to love raw carrots but has had trouble eating them recently.
I think dog treats that include vegetables (and meat) as a primary ingredient are the best choice for your dog's health (skin, coat, teeth and stomach).
Thanks Cory for sharing your homemade dog treat recipe - it was easy to make and both our dogs loved those baked carrot slices (they were almost like cookies rather than slices).
Simple, healthy homemade dog treats.
