Dried liver dog treats

THE DEFINITIVE TRAINING TREAT

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.

INGREDIENTS

A packet of liver (any liver will do).

METHOD

raw liver

Get some liver, wash off the blood. Place tin foil onto a baking tray and lay down liver.

DRIED LIVER

This is how it looks after it's been cooked for 1 hr - 1 hr 30 mins at 100°C/210°F

I’m interested to try this for my dog. Just wondering how long they last without freezing?

Would it be ok to use this for training my 17 week old German Shepherd pup or should i use something like chicken?

I have a four year old rescue border terrier, so a big learning curve for him. Going to give him dried liver treats as comeback treats. Got to keep him on a long lead as he clears off regardless of how many sauceage bits I give him. Don’t even give him full breakfast until we get back home, so hoping liver will work as I get fed up with waiting for him to return.

Training my 9 week old Border Terrier and was wondering how much of the dried Liver I can safely feed. Planning to use as a recall treat so will need to use often.
