Gluten Free dog treats and Grain Free dog treats are becoming more and more popular.
Simply put, we love our furry friends. They make up a large part of our families. Statistically the amount of families that own one or more dog is increasing daily.
And many are coming into our homes with one allergy or sensitivity after another, so wouldn't it be nice to nurture them by caring for their needs in the form of gluten free / grain free dog treats?
That is why it is becoming ever more important for us, as dog owners, to make sure that what our dogs eat is healthy and allergen free.

4. Remember, it isn’t about the money that you spend; it is about the safety of your pet. Treat them as you would yourself with your allergy. They are very sensitive to these allergies and can suffer badly if you choose the “Cheap” route to go.
Another route, that I highly recommend to ensure the highest of quality gluten free dog treat, is to make it yourself. It only takes a few minutes and a little love to make sure your pooch is safe.
