You need somethimg small Mel....When I did class with Samson I looked for the smallest treats I could find...Those garlic cheese balls would work well for Zulu...Mine don't respond to treats when we are away from the house, so I just use positive reinforcement...

If you have a dehydrator (sp?) the world is yours when it comes to making tasty/smelly treats! It's super easy easy and there is no baking involved. Just put in whatever type of meat you'd like to use (liver, salmon, etc), set the dial and walk away. Then once it's done you can chop it into pieces, whatever size you want.

If you do find any good (easy) recipes, please share

Dehydrators are great! I just made Rocky a batch of chicken jerky (his favorite) today. I just buy boneless breasts when they're on sale and freeze them. When I need to fix a batch I move a package to the fridge for 12 to 24 hours so it's still mostly frozen but easily sliced. Slice it longways into 1/4" to 1/2" (try to be consistent so they dehydrate at the same rate) strips and stick them on the racks. Dehydrate at 160 F for 5 or 6 hours and remove the strips to paper towels to absorb any residual fat. Wipe up the inevitable puddle of drool from the kitchen floor and serve. It's all natural and no preservatives or additives, just chicken. I just bag it up and keep it in the freezer. It can be served right out of the freezer too. You can also break it up into small pieces and carry them in a plastic bag for training or just treats!

I haven't tried too many other things but he loves dehydrated apples and other fruits as well. I'll have to try making salmon jerky. I have trouble finding beef liver around here for some reason but he loves the treats by Beefeaters, they're just so expensive.

This may sound silly....I use regular cheerios for training. Nikitas LOVES it and the big box lasts a long time. Sometimes I'll use tiny pieces of apple too. I just found that the dog treats were going fast and costing big bucks!

I have told my hubby to get some peanuts for you.
Don't worry he will definitely get it for you. In case,
he forgot, I will bake something myself for you dear.

2 packg. Chicken liver, 1 table spoon of rice flour,3 eggs - put in the blender. Blend well. Put pergment peper in the baking sheet(cookie sheet) pour mixture, *bake at 375 for 15 minutes. Wait 15 min before cutting. Cut with pizza cutter to size you like to. My boxer loves them and if yours has any problems with gas this will fix it.

I buy the all natural jerky treats for Kiah, they have fish & venison, beef, liver, venison, and chicken. *I break them into little pieces for our agility training for Kiah. *I am not a cook
