Grain-free treats + blueberries
First Basenji's

Mom flew in all the way from Michigan with a stash of fresh blueberries that need to be frozen or consumed soon! I thought I'd use them to make some dog treats. However, I want to stick to grain-free recipes, esp. for the sake of our shiba who's combatting allergies.

I read that it's easy enough to substitute sweet potato flour for all-purpose flour (just a straight up 1:1 substitution?) Does anyone else have other recipe tips?

Would beef liver + blueberries be a weird combo? I guess if they eat it, it's good…

i use potato flakes instead of flour in the muttloaf recipes. i just sort of do it by sight, so can't really help as far as numbers for substitution. I've used liver and blueberries in the same muttloaf, so i guess it works.

Muttloaf, mmm…
I'll give it a whirl and see how it turns out. Thanks!

More dog owners are using the positive reinforcement method during dog training. With positive reinforcement, treats are used to teach dogs new behaviors. You can use wholesale grain free dog treats to help you get the behavior you want from your dog and let them know that he performed the behavior correctly.

Blueberries can cause the stool to change color in humans but I do not know if this is true for dogs. Do not panic if it does.

I've seen blueberry and liver in the same treats in high quality brands do I'm assuming it's a good pair!

Oh, and in the muttloaf, the blueberries can look like mold. So I always warn the hubby if he happens to be feeding.
