Homemade Gluten-Free Dog Treats

Dogs love these 3-Ingredient, gluten-free, homemade dog treats. They are quick and easy to make and can help you save money by using pantry ingredients.

Last year, for National Puppy Day (March 23), I shared a recipe for 4 Ingredient High Quality Homemade Puppy/Dog Training Treats. Our dogs LOVE these treats, and they were such a lifesaver training our new puppy Orla.

Little did I know that recipe would become the MOST POPULAR recipe on my blog. (THANK YOU!) Seems like you and your furry family members love those treats as much as I do. So, I thought it would be fun to share another recipe. This one only requires 3 ingredients, and these homemade dog treats are gluten-free! Plus, they can also be used when training your dogs.
