Every year, my dog is my valentine.

I love making special DIY Valentine’s Day Dog Treats for my dogs.

Homemade dog treats are such a lovely way to spoil your dog and Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to do it. Whether you’re making a quick treat for your own dog or you want to surprise neighbourhood dog friends, this chicken dog treat recipe is quick, easy and Kolchak loved them.

We made these treats with chicken, but honestly! You could really make them with any kind of lean meat. If your dog has allergies, try substituting a novel protein like bison or quail.

Can we use all purpose or coconut flour instead of rice flour?

Unfortunately, the recipe is written specifically for rice flour because it is gluten free. If you used a gluten based flour (like all purpose) these would be very tough and with a flour like coconut they would fall right apart. We do have a lot of recipes that you can use all purpose flour in though :)
