Your dogs don’t have to mind their manners around these homemade treats. And even though they’re full of healthy ingredients, your dogs won’t even notice.

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.
