Dogs go wild for homemade treats with high meat content. I give out the following recipes to all my agility students and so far haven’t met a dog who didn’t work hard in class for these treats. Cut them into small pieces so your dog can eat them quickly as their reward during class. This way, you’ll get in lots of fast tiny rewards when training a new behavior and don’t have to wait for your dog to chew.
14 oz can salmon
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp garlic powder or minced garlic (optional)
1/4 cup grated parmesan or other Italian cheese (optional)
Mix salmon, garlic, egg and cheese in bowl
Add flour and mix to a brownie-like consistency
Spread into 13×9 greased pan (it’s pretty thin in pan, but helps so you can cut into tiny pieces for training treats)
Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes
When done they will a putty-like texture and the edges will pull away from the sides of the pan.
Use a pizza cutter to cut into squares (or cut with cookie cutter) and refrigerate or freeze.
2 tins of sardines packed in olive oil
1 package of graham crackers (an inside sleeve, not the entire box)
Dump everything into a blender (I use a bowl and mixer and broke up
the graham crackers by hand a little before mixing) and blend until
completely combined. Pour into an 9 x 13″ baking dish and spread out.
Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 20 minutes until top looks
rubbery. Cut into treat sized pieces and refrigerate or freeze.
