Peach and Pumpkin Cobbler Treats

If you think your dog is a peach, these treats are perfect for your pooch! Peaches are in season, and we decided to pick a few of the fuzzy favorites for our gluten free Peach and Pumpkin Cobbler Treats. Peaches make a sweet treat for pups, as long as you remove the pit. We also used fresh peaches, because the canned variety is often preserved in syrup, and it’s extra sugar your dog doesn’t need. On top of that, pumpkin and Perfect Form work wonders on canine digestive systems, and the gluten free flours we added are ideal for sensitive stomachs.
