Healthy Dog Biscuit Recipes
One of most sought after types of homemade dog treat recipes are the healthy kind:) Of course making your pet homemade snacks at home is a healthy alternative to purchasing treats from the store, but you have to be careful when it comes to the ingredients that you are using. Because I have owned an online dog bakery called The Beggin' Beagle Bakery for last seven years, I have a lot of experience with this. Throughout the years I have come across several dog biscuit recipes that use quite a bit of sugar and other fatty ingredients. If used too much this stuff could pack on the pounds.
Having said that, we as pet owners have to be responsible when it comes to feeding our pets, especially treats. If you over feed your pet it really doesn't matter how healthy the food or snacks are. It's a given that your pet's chances of becoming over weight will significantly increase if they are overfed.
I happen to have an older dog so I have been trying to make him treats that are a bit healthier. The cheese dog treats that are pictured above are low in fat and use healthy ingredients. I like using recipes full of fresh vegetables and fruit too. I have been experimenting with homemade dog food as well and made my dog a pretty tasty meal last night! (Save that for another lens) So.... I decided to make a list of some of the healthy dog biscuit recipes that he really likes. Hope you and your dog enjoy!

Peanut Butter Dog Biscuit Recipes
Pantera's Peanut Butter Biscuits
Peanut butter dog biscuits are amongst the most popular type of treats so I thought it was only proper to include a peanut butter dog biscuit recipe. The recipe below comes from a cookbook that is very special to me. The book is called The Collaborative Canine and I was lucky enough to co-author this book with an extremely talented artist, who also happens to be an active animal rescue advocate and a dear friend! We created these books, which happen to be beautifully designed, to not only supply our readers with tasty homemade dog treat recipes, but to also showcase their furry friends. A percentage of all sales were donated to animal shelters and we are looking forward to creating another edition of these cookbooks to add to the series.

Wheat Free Dog Biscuit Recipes
Latte's Delicious Dog Biscuits
As I mentioned earlier, I have owned and operated an online dog bakery called The Beggin' Beagle Bakery since 2006. This particular recipe is for wheat free dog biscuits and was amongst my most popular treats. A lot of dogs have wheat allergies and many pet owners are looking for "wheat free" treats. I happen to offer a wide line of wheat free as well as grain free treats at my bakery because I'm finding that the number of people who request these types of treats has steadily been on the rise.
