When I was training my German Shepherd Dog Luika, these biscuits were recommended to me by my trainer. Being a vegetarian, they were not the easiest biscuits I had ever made, but trust me, your dog will love them and they make training a whole lot easier! I wore kitchen gloves and vegetarians, you may want a peg handy since they smell awful, although my dog slavered the whole time they were cooking, but I found that these were by far, the best dog treats for training.
- 1 lb (450g) lamb or pig’s liver
- 1 lb (450g) whole wheat flour (gluten free for dogs with allergies)
- 2 – 3 organic eggs
- 1 clove of garlic (optional)
- Crack the eggs into a measuring jug.
- Add an equal volume of water to the measuring jug and whisk.
- Blend the liver and garlic in a food processor.
- Add the egg mixture and blend to a cake-like consistency.
- Empty contents into a lined baking tray.
- Bake at Gas Mark 6 or 180 degrees for approximately 45 – 60 minutes (when cooked the cake should bounce back when pressed).
- Remove from the oven and peel off the lining paper
- Allow to cool.
- Divide into cubes and freeze.
German Shepherd Dogs have extremely thick coats and during the summer months he absolutely adores activities involving water and in order to cool him further I decided to look for some nice ice lolly treats.
You can use the normal ice-lolly moulds or yogurt pots, but do NOT use lolly sticks since your dog could easily choke on them. Please remember to use only natural ingredients in small amounts, avoiding anything toxic
Yogurt Ice treats
- 1 Cup of natural yogurt
- 1 Cup of peanut butter
- Mix the peanut butter and yogurt together.
- Place the mixture in a freeze proof container and place it in the freezer.
- After a couple of hours, you have some delicious ice treats for your dog!
Please remember to wait 10 – 15 minutes before giving them to your dog in order to avoid freezer burn on their tongues.
If you want to make ice lollies, chose something that your dog particularly loves such as chopped carrot, cooked meat, banana etc. just pour water into your container of choice (remember to use a container unique to your dog) and add your ingredients.
Please remember that some fruits are toxic to dogs such as grapes and raisins, so PLEASE do your homework before selecting your ingredients.
Being the owner of three extremely spoilt cats, I thought I would include a recipe for your feline family and tuna toast is a real hit with mine.
- Lightly toast a slice of bread
- Cut the toast into cubes
- Brush the toast with a little fresh fish oil
- Sprinkle the toast with some tuna flakes
- Bake in the oven at 350 degrees until golden brown
Leave to bool before serving Your cats will find this absolutely PURRfect 😊
Please note: Some animals have allergic reactions to foods just like us, so PLEASE do your research and beware of inadvertently feeding your pet toxins.
When feeding treats be mindful that they have different calorie values and adjust their regular food accordingly.
