You can always roast some beef or boil up some chicken. Just cut into cubes when cold. I freeze portions when I cook up a large batch and the dogs prefer it over store bought treats. Much cheaper too :thumbs up.

Global has many wheat-free/holistic type treats. I would think that wherever you are buying your Orijen they would have wheat free treats. Just read the packaging really well.

Both my dogs have been "grain free" for a couple of years now and it has worked wonders for their allergies.

Good luck

The brand Nothern Biscuits make grain-free doggy treats. It's a Canadian company.
My dog loves them, we've only tried the Lamb and Trout flavour so far. All the main pet food supply stores sell it ie: Global, Ryan's, PetValu.

But there are lots of others out there. Go through the treat shelves and read the ingredients.

Orijen makes dog biscuits also from the same ingredients as the dry food.

I get these dehydrated chicken or duck breasts for Scruff. They're just meat - that's it. Nothing else. Every pet store I've been in has them, but they are a tad pricy. They are cheapest at Costco.
I also give him bits of fresh fruit or vegetables. That way he gets fresh food, enzymes, etc. Even the best processed food is still processed, is my thinking.

Luke has wheat allergy too and will only eat this one brand of chessey woof biscuits that we get from a local dog store called "Big Dog Little Dog". You can also try making some. There are some good recipes in our rescue FaceBook group "Without Borders Boxer Rescue" I am trying to add a new recipe each week.
I like dehydrating as well.

Otherwise try making this one:

PEANUT BUTTER BONES (Yes Lukey they are Wheat Free)

1 cups oat flour
1 cup soy flour
1 tb. Baking powder
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 400. In a mixing bowl, combine oat flour, soy flour and baking powder. In a blender, blend peanut butter and milk. Pour peanut butter mixture into dry ingredients and mix well. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead lightly. Roll out dough 1 inch thick and cut into squares or use a bone cookie cutter. Place biscuits on baking sheet about inch apart and bake for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Biscuits should be refrigerated or frozen.

These Bones are Lukey's favourite and hard to refuse for most dogs!

Some I like are:

Wellness Pure Rewards

Zuke's Jerky Naturals

Now! Grain Free Treats

And there are some good grain-free lamb treats that just came out by a company called "Oven Baked Tradition".

All of these are available at Pet Valu and/or Global/Ryan's Pet Foods.

I also give bits of cooked meat, cheese, and fruits and veggies like: carrots, broccoli, apples and frozen melon balls.

Evo also has a grain free biscuit

These are what we buy:

They are made right here in Winnipeg so I can easily find them but they have a list of retailers all across Canada and I think you can order online.
