"Two Paws Up" Liver Treats

by: Louise Louis - www.toybreeds.com

1. Get quarter pound of lamb liver (that's about 4 oz. - the liver may be packaged in larger sizes. That's fine. It's just that this makes a lot of treats as you eventually cut the liver into small cubes.)

2. Place it in a pot filled with water, bring it to a boil and let it simmer until the liver no longer looks raw and seems cooked through.

3. Take it out of the water and place it on paper towels to cool.

4. Cut the liver into small cubes (about one-half inch square or whatever you can manage)

5. Place the cubes on an oven-proof tray and bake for one hour at a cool setting (no more than 275F).

6. Let the cubes cool before serving. He will love every one.

P.S. If liver is too expensive, buy hot dogs instead. Boil them and cut into small portions. These are perennial favorites.

P.P.S. Do not feed your dog raw meat or fish. He is susceptible to food-borne diseases, such as salmonella and botulism, just as you are.

When you're too busy to cook, there are plenty of wholesome snacks you can get at the grocery store. See which ones of the below your dog prefers:

  • Cheese cubes (Kraft and many others sell bags of cheese cut into small cubes that are perfect size for good doggies.) Recommended by noted animal trainer, Adam Katz.
  • Braunschweiger - many handlers use this to reward dogs in the dog ring. Again, cut into small portions.
  • Pet-tabs, which are yeast-vitamin tablets. Famous veterinarian, Dr. Bruce Fogle likes these. Buy at pet stores.
  • Raw carrot bits.

Remember, treats are to be used sparingly and only for really good dogs. Toy breeds have a tendency to obesity (thanks to our overfeeding) so include the treats in his daily calorie count.
