Gluten is the general term for a number of proteins found in grains such as wheat, barley and rye. If your dog suffers from a sensitivity to gluten, it can cause a negetative inflammatory reaction known as celiac disease. It’s exactly the same with people. That’s why we’ve developed dog treat baking mixes that make homemade gluten-free dog treats!
We never use wheat in any of our dog treat mixes. That is a major point of difference between The Dog Chef and others who make dog treats mixes.
Wheat flour is both less expensive and less nutritious than the types of flour we use. Flours such as coconut flour, tapioca flour and almond flour are light-years ahead of wheat flour in terms of nutritional value. The fact that they’re all both grain and gluten-free as well comes as an added bonus.
Of course there is a downside to these benefits. As with everything in life, there is a price to pay for improved quality. The flours we use are more expensive. Considerably more expensive. Chalk and cheese springs to mind, and I know which I personally would prefer with my favourite savoury biscuit!
The upside of the gluten-free dog treats made with our Bake & Treat homemade dog treat baking mixes is that you know exactly what you’re feeding your dog.
Not only are they gluten-free and 100% natural, they’re also more tasty that the average highly processed dog treat.
Overseen by our resident dog nutritionist, every ingredient is both dog safe and human grade. Every ingredient offers your dog health benefits above and beyond what you’ll find in any highly processed, commercial dog treat.
The ingredients have been hand-processed by us and homemade by you. In our view, rewarding your dog just doesn’t get any better than that!
