Hi all

What do you use as regular training treats? Jess is 6 months now and seems to be bored of fried liver or kidney:rolleyes:

Thanks

Paul.

I use liver cake (loads of recipes if you google) or liver chips dried in the oven. I also get a natural jerky from my pet food suppliers. I only ever give really tiny pieces.

Flo likes small bits of mature hard cheese (Cheddar if UK!) and she also loves frozen peas! When training I use dog sausage and small bits of dried (microwaved) lambs liver. She also loves salmon so when I cook salmon I take the skin off then let it dry in the oven as it cools. You can also get commercial dried fish and some dogs really lovely strong fish. I struggle to get Flo to take her nose off the ground when outdoor training as she is a real 'scenter' but she'll always ligt her head for 'smelly' fish. Sometimes the trick is to have a selection of different bits so they don't get bored and know what's coming.

Wilf gets bored of the treats very easily so they lose their appeal but cheese works wonders as others have mentioned x

Liver cake baked! Very popular!


1 lb (450g) liver (lambs or pigs)
1 lb (450g) granary flour
3 eggs
2 cloves of garlic (optional)
One teaspoon of oil
Dash of milk
Liquidise liver with eggs, milk, oil and garlic in blender. Add to flour and mix. Put into a microwave dish
and cook on full power for about six-ten minutes.
The cake should bounce back when pressed lightly, when cooked.
Cut the ca
ke into slices and freeze. Take out of freezer when required.
