        Are Homemade Dog Biscuits Good For Dogs?

        The debate between homemade dog biscuits and store-bought dog treats is one of budget vs. convenience. Of course, commercial dog food is convenient; all you have to do is scoop some into your pup’s bowl. But many say that homemade treats taste better, provide an extra incentive for training and can be healthier (especially if they use whole wheat flour instead of bleached white). If you want to give homemade dog biscuits a try. Check out the three delicious recipes mentioned above.

        Can You Use Regular Four in Homemade Dog Biscuits?

        Yes, you can use regular flour to make homemade dog biscuits. However, you’ll want to measure it accurately. Keep in mind that wheat flours range in their gluten content. For example, bread flour has a higher gluten content than all-purpose flour. This means that when you’re using bread flour to make your own dog treats, they will have a stronger bounce than if you used all-purpose or whole wheat flour. It’s also important to note that some people may be allergic to certain types of flours and grains; therefore, if your pup is particularly sensitive or has allergies of his own, it’s best not to experiment with different kinds of grains just yet.
