This dog treat can’t be beat. This is what I use for treats when I’m walking all my dogs and there is a huge difference to how the pups respond to these homemade treats for dogs compared processed shop bought stuff and if you do this you will see why they’re the best dog training treats you can get! It’s very cheap to buy liver from your local supermarket or butcher (much cheaper than branded treats and a whole lot better for your dog).  I’ve never known treats to go down so well with dogs.  I cannot emphasize enough how much your dog will love these, dogs that wouldn’t respond well before suddenly come running for dried liver . They are ideal for training and to get the attention of your dog and get control back when you are outside.

Cleaning the oven tray can be a pain after drying liver so cover with tin foil or use disposable foil trays.  Dried liver is gorgeous and has a nice smell, I even like eating it but it can make your clothes smell if you carry it in them so use a treat bag when out and about.  If you fancy an alternative liver recipe, try my liver cake recipe for dogs, a super dog treat.
