When it comes to hypoallergenic dog treats, there’s a wide range of ingredients that may be considered hypoallergenic versus what are hypoallergenic to your pooch.
If you notice, whenever we share these types of treat recipes, I disclaim quite a bit. For example, in our chicken biscuits hypoallergenic recipe, I mention that the ingredients are hypoallergenic for the most part UNLESS your dog is allergenic to chicken. Our pumpkin and oats treats recipe is a great hypo recipe for dogs who can’t eat meats, but it would be a disaster for pups with oat allergies.
With this particular recipe, we wanted to give you something incredibly simple that just about all dogs could enjoy, even those with very sensitive tummies. HOWEVER, I am still disclaiming. If your dog is allergic to rice flour or coconut, obviously this isn’t the recipe for you. I’m assuming your dog isn’t allergic to salt or water. Gosh, I hope he’s not allergic to water! My brother’s dog is allergic to some pretty crazy things, and I’ve heard of cats who are allergic to cats, so really, it could happen.
Yes, this is probably one of the more bland hypoallergenic recipes out there, but again, it’s so simple that even a dog with incredibly sensitive tummies can eat it, making it great for reward training. If you want, you can add a little bouillon or broth in place of the water, depending on your dog’s allergies. Okay, enough talk, let’s check it out!

-Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Easy, right? Like I said, if you want to add a little flavor, just switch out some (or all) of the water for a type of broth that your dog doesn’t have issues with. If you are planning to use these for training treats, you might want to make them a little smaller. Or make the bone-shaped ones for bigger treats, and roll the leftover dough into little balls or strips for training rewards.
