I have a 1.5 year old tripawd beagle named Joey. He is a month out from amputation and we are starting back up his training. Naturally, training means treats! I’m a fan of cooking and baking and I have been making treats for Joey since I got him 3 months ago. Right now, I only have recipes that use whole-wheat flour in them. I want switch to grain-free treats but need some recipes. Please let me know of any good/easy recipes!

Good for you for looking out for his diet!
Does Joey like green beans? I use them to supplement meals and for treats. Not the best thing to carry in your bait bag though
If you do use the canned type be sure to get the no salt add variety.
I also searched our nutrition blog on ‘treats’ and got these results.
I use a ton of treats with Elly for training and nose work and when we are out working on her confidence. Mostly I use store bought and cut them up into small pieces- Elly is pretty little at about 15.5 pounds. I do make sure to account for all the extras in her total calorie intake.
