Chloe is allergic to wheat, corn, and soy. They makes her ears act up. We are having a hard time finding treats she can have. She has the Wellness biscuits and some yogurt drop treat. Any homemade cookie recipes for allergy prone dogs. Most seem to call for flour and such.
Thanks a bunch!!!!!!!
My dogs don't tolerate those ingredients very well either and I prefer not to feed anything with them in anyway. Usually foods with wheat, corn and soy in are not the best of quality. For this reason, I use people food as treats. I use meat, plain and simple. Diced up into small cubes. Chicken, lamb, steak trimmings, duck, pheasant, pork, etc., are all excellent. You can use whatever meat you can get your hands on...a lot of my dogs treats are just leftovers from our meals.
Oona is allergic to Wheat Corn and I think dairy. I feed her Natures Recipe Lamb Rice and Barley. When we go out I have a pocket of her food with me and give it to her a kibble at a time. This works well because I don't have to worry about all of the extras, and I can keep track of the amout I give her better. Dogs don't have a concept of size or portion they just know they are getting something, so if you think about it from this point of view its better because they are getting something more often.

Make your own --
Dehydrate some banana or peach or apricot or apple slices. Or use some fresh. For instance, I sometimes take along a fresh banana and bite off a slice with my teeth and give it to Puff as a treat. The same with an apple. (If grapes and raisins weren't toxic to dogs, they whould make convenient treats.)
Slice some thin (dime or nickle size) slices of hot dog, sprinkle a little garlic powder on them and nuke them just long enough to set the GP and cook them a bit.

The dried fruit is a great idea Bob,especially when I need a jackpot treat. You were the one that gave me the idea of giving Oona just her kibble instead of dog biscuts.
Thank You for ALL the tips. We will definetly be checking into them this weekend when we go to the store.
