Homemade Liver Dog Treats will Give Your Dog a New Happy Dance Routine

Liver may not be your first choice, but I can guarantee that it is your dogs top contender for favorite dog treat. Make one or all of the following liver dog treats to see a whole new happy dance.

Easy Dehydrated Liver Treats can be made with calf liver or chicken livers.

Katrina from Tucson, AZ says:

"As soon as I cut that pack of liver open my dog, Java, did not leave my side. This was the easiest ever to make. When they came out he was once again in the kitchen hoping for a taste.

Well, Java LOVES them and so do I. This is one doggy treat we are sharing. LOL Seriously. And this will help with his training as he was getting tired of the other treats. Now he has something new and exciting. Can't wait to do other meat this way!"

Liver & Carrot Brownies Recipe are a great introduction to liver without as much "smell" factor. :)

Lesley from Norwich, England says:

"Made the liver and carrot dog treats today, used gluten free flour instead of wheat as I'm gluten intolerant and that's what I had in the cupboard.

My dog, Kes, was very interested in the whole process, think it was the smell of the liver, and she snaffled a bit of carrot as usual.

Once in the oven she wandered off but as soon as they came out she was back and bouncing round the kitchen desperate for a taste. Her reaction on trying a cube was so funny, her tail was going round in circles, she had a grin on a her face and was begging for more. I think I can safely say I will be making more."

Dog Treat Baking Tips -
I Want YOUR Feedback!

We all need a helpful tip from time to time, and I'm no exception. I was recently asked this question by a website visitor named Angie:

"I have been making my 2 big dogs cookies and food for about 14 months. I have used many of your recipes which are all fantastic. Thank you. I have been looking for ways to make my cooking process quicker and was wondering if you could recommend a non commercial inexpensive machine to roll out the dough? Any guidance is appreciated."

My response was:

"Unfortunately I haven't been able to find a specific cookie dough machine, but I do have a couple alternatives for you to consider.

The first would be a pasta maker. You can purchase one for $30, or less, attach it to your counter and roll out your dough. The only limitation would be that your dough would need to be smooth. In other words, you wouldn't be able to use carob chips, or other mix-ins, as these wouldn't roll out very well.

The other option is a cookie press. These little gadgets would work great if your dough is on the thinner or softer side. You could easily press out little cookie shapes. You would probably need to adjust your baking time as these cookies will most likely be smaller than your usual roll and cut out dog cookies."

What do you suggest for Angie to quickly roll out her dog treat cookie dough? What do you do to make the whole process of making dog treats fun and quick? I'd love to hear your answers and tips! :) Hit reply to this newsletter or use my Contact Us form to email me. Thanks. :)
