Here is a relatively quick recipe for creating some tasty dog training treats. I’ve used this successfully with many dog training clients, and all of the dogs so far have approved of the taste.
One additional note to consider:
This particular recipe may contain ingredients dogs should have in limited amounts, so use it sometimes, but not in large doses on a daily basis, and always check with your veterinarian if needed, or if you have concerns about the ingredients or amount you should feed your dogs.
I’m also grateful for one of my clients who used chicken instead of tuna, so that is another option as well.
- 12 oz of tuna with the canned water (do not drain)
- 2 eggs
- 1 to 1.5 cups of flour
- Mash tuna and eggs in a bowl or pan – add water as needed
- Pour into a pan, add flour, and mix
- Spread into cookie sheet or keep in pan
- Bake at 350 for 15 minutes – it will be the texture of putty
- Cut into tiny squares (about the size of a pea or dog food kibble). These can be frozen for storage, or refrigerated for more immediate use.
- For chicken fudge, simply substitute canned chicken for tuna.
