Holiday Recipe: Gluten-Free Bonbons
Posted by The Honest Kitchen on 6th December 2016
- 1 cup The Honest Kitchen Force™ dehydrated dog food
- 1/2 cup ground beef
- 1 cup canned pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie mix)
- 1 free range egg
- 1 small handful of quinoa or buckwheat flour
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Mix equal part of the Force™ and pumpkin together in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Add in the beef, quinoa flour, and egg, and mix until well blended.
- Shape into balls of a size appropriate for your dog, and place onto a greased cookie sheet.
- Bake for approximately 15-20 minutes, or until slightly golden on the outside, but soft in the middle.
- Cool, and then call in the hounds.
- These treats will store for about a week in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
These treats are quick and easy to make and are suitable for most sensitive pets. Quinoa and buckwheat are not true grains and are very well tolerated, even by grain-allergic pets. ALSO: Quinoa flour has quite a strong taste and aroma, which most pets love, but some animals take a while to get used to it. If you have a fussy pup, buckwheat flour is a perfectly good alternative.
Trying to decide which is better for your dog—a collar or a harness? The short answer is: You may need both. It really depends on the size and temperament of your dog and what it takes to maintain safe control of him.
A dog barking in the backseat of the car can be a real nuisance—and even a hazard—for human drivers. But for dogs, barking is a way of communicating. In order to put the kibosh on all that annoying barking, we first need to understand why our furry companion is barking to begin with.
