  1. Hi, a note about garlic: It’s really good for dogs and you can give dogs garlic supplements to help with blood flow, thus proper heart and other organ function. It’s great for general well being. It’s only a problem if a dog consumes a large amount like a whole bulb or more. On the whole it’s a very beneficial addition to dog food and treats.

  2. So easy to do and less smelly than liver cake! Really good treats for training when cut into small pieces. Magic (a black lab puppy) loves them and will sit quietly watching me make a batch. Recipe freezes well. Thanks.

  4. Hi,

    I really wanna try this recipe but I’m just wondering, wouldn’t it affect the coat of my dogs? I have 6 Sharpei, they have sensitive skin, and from what I know tuna is acrid.

    Thanks.

    • Hi Joan!

      Acrid? You mean smelly? To be honest I don’t know how it would affect your dogs but if you don’t want to try Tuna then try another fish like Sardines.

  7. How long would these stay fresh? I’m happy to freeze but wondered how long they might last initially/once unfrozen.

  9. are these ok treat for puppys? any problem using tuna in brine thats all i have at the moment

    Reply
    • Hi Craig. To be honest I’m not too sure if brine is ok or not. Brine is salty water and I’m not sure how dogs are with that extra salt. I’ve contacted my canine dietitian and hopefully she’ll reply soon, but for me, I’d just stick with the oily type.

  10. Hi! I just want to give you a heads up that garlic is not safe for dogs. Nothing from the onion family is. Even in dried/powder form. It can cause a type of blood disorder that is fatal. Other than that, excited to try your recipe!

    • Hi Amanda!

      My canine dietitician uses garlic as a means of preventing ticks. I was at a dog walker workshop today where a vet attended so I asked him and he said it was good for keeping ticks away cause they don’t like the smell/taste, but onions were bad. On returning I spoke to my dietician tonight who said….

      “it been a debate for yonks…they would have to eat kilo’s of it for it to be harmful lol …but eat kilo’s of lots of stuff and it harmful..

      as your vet said it good for treating ticks, it a natural blood cleanser..it a good anti cancer agent etc

      i would rather feed my dog a small amount of garlic to keep away ticks than risk giving them a chemical flea treatment in order to protect them against such things as lyme disease”

  11. This looks quite a wet treat which might make it difficult to use in training classes….is it?

  12. This sounds perfect for my dog, thanks. I have a tin of pink salmon, can I substitute that for the tuna?
