Has anyone ever told you to mind your “Ps and Qs”? Well, we’d like you to mind these Ps and Qs… because in this case, they stand for peas and quinoa! Our Ps and Qs Dog Treat recipe includes green peas and quinoa flour – tasty ingredients that serve up a healthy dose of potassium and amino acids. Plus, quinoa flour is grain free, so dogs with sensitive stomachs will be able to better digest this homemade treat.

Your dogs don't have to mind their manners around these homemade treats. Ingredients:

1 ½ cups quinoa flour

1 cup peas

1/8 cup flax seed meal

1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
