Puppy Treat Question

Recommended Posts

We just got a puppy this weekend. We got her started on a wheat free food. But it is not gluten-free because it has barely in it. I am not too concerned as I feed her outside and I make sure she eats it all before the kids go see her.

My question is that we are starting obidence lessons on Sunday and the treats that I have found out there are wheat free but not gluten-free. I wanted to have my 5 year old DD come to the class with me, but I am nervous about her touching the food. I know most of you would say that she will be fine as long as she washes her hands~ but I wanted to know if anyone has heard of a gluten-free dog treat ?

I haven't verified with the company, but I use Pupperoni treats. The ingredients read gluten-free, so I'm comfortable using them. I use the beef or bacon flavor. They come in long strips, so you could tear some up for obedience purposes.

There is also a Milk Bone fillet mignon type snack that reads gluten-free--check the labels, though, as I only bought them once and am not sure what types they come in.

Good luck!

Hi!

We had the same issue when we got our puppy and ds was 4 (and I'm celiac too). For dog training during class we used tiny cheese cubes. Fragrant for the dog, and soft, and safe. For general home stuff (and because too much cheese gives our pup tremendous gas, lol) we get a pure dried chicken treat from the grocery store called Chicken Nibbles. Nothing in it but chicken.

For food, we use Canidae from the pet store. High quality, real ingredients, gluten free (and soy free too!) With the dog kibble, we also play games like "find it" where ds lays out a path of treats to the Big Treat at the end. And, he likes the feed the dog, so it's one less thing to worry about.

Hth,

Merika

I know that IAM's dry food is gluten free. You can always use a couple pieces of it for a treat. I have also bought pork rinds to use for my dog's treats. I have seen gluten free biscuits in the health food store, but they are quite pricey. I wonder if there is a gluten free dog biscuit recipe out there to bake.

If you have a speciality dog store near you they may have some treats. The store near me (a Dog Bakery) has jerky for dogs and many of them are gluten-free. They also stock organic dog foods that are gluten-free. They have bones too.

Otherwise, my dogs will eat just about anything! So for training classes try human quality deli meat, jerky, cheese, bread (mine go crazy for bread!).

What kind of dog did you get?

Have fun in puppy class.
