Butter Biscuits - FOR DOGS!
Santa's dog will do anything for these!
Slice a hot dog and then nuke it until it's shriveled. This makes a great training treat. I even cut the slices in half for a smaller treat. You don't want to feed the dog-just entice it and/or give it a reward. I also put dog food (dry) and use pieces of that for treats too. Some dogs are picky so I usually have 3 different things to choose from with me.
To hold the treats in I use a neat pouch that clips to a belt loop on my pants. It zips closed when not in use and it is easily washed. It's also easier to get the treats out of faster than my pocket!
Training Treats for Dogs
1 lb. raw liver
Add small amount of flour to make stiff (if needed). Use aluminum foil or lots of spray on cookie sheet. Press into pan. Bake at 350 about 20 to 30 minutes, until bottom is light brown. Cut into large pieces to wrap in foil and freeze. Take out only enough for a day or two. Does not store long in refrigerator.
Since Boomer's allergy problems, I have not been using these with him, he is allergic to wheat. The best and least messy treats we have used so far is plain beef jerky. We buy a flank roast, or some other inexpensive cut of beef, and slice it thin and put in in the food dehydrator. (see you should have hung on to that one you sold at the yard sale!) After it's dried, I put about 1/2 in the freezer for later use, and the other half in a Ziploc bag in the fridge. You can cut it up into small training pieces with a scissors.
I don't know about
