    Heya,

    Sorry to start this one again but I’m just in a total wirlwind about treats! I can obviously just use chicken but that’s going to go off in such a short period of time (and to be honest, I really don’t want to faff with boiling a chicken breast everyday!)

    Can chicken be dried in the same way as liver? i.e. Boil for 15mins then bake for 45-60mins etc… Will it keep better?

    I’ve just done a search on t’internet for “natural dog treats” and it came up with this site: http://www.dogsgold.co.uk
    Anything on there that’s worth looking into?… I know (expensive) but that doesn’t bother me a great deal to be honest…

    Anyone else have any other options that doesn’t envolve preparing/cooking/baking for me to look into? I found out list night that Izzy is not a big fan of cheese!

    Frankfurters work quite well chopped up, as do pepperami sticks. I found Cass didn’t like cheddar but went mad for edam cheese.

    That’s a perfect recipe and I can do that in one hit in an evening – excellent! Do you feed the treats frozen or defrost them again?

    be careful of the amount of hotdogs you give Izzy, they are full of salt.  🙂

    You’re telling me! See my thread from today about foods dangerous for dogs, after Toby ate some raisins last night and I spent a sleepless night beside myself with worry I know I’m not cut out for kids!

    what you have to remember is that i have 6 BCs  😀

    and i do A LOT of training

    i have a full freezer draw of frozen dog treats

    my dogs are happy to eat them frozen

    my advice is use a decent food processer (ive got 2 – one is about 15 years old the other was on freecycle)  – blenders seem to die very quickly with that sort of stuff
    when it looks a bit like cake mix put it in a pot dish (easier to clean)
    blast it – looks a bit sloppy – blast it some more
    turn it over and blast it again
    doesnt matter if you burn it the dogs will eat it anyway

    dogs are loads easier than kids – you can leave your dogs at home when you go to work – nursery costs a damm fortune

    SCHOOL IN SEPTEMBER WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    natures menu do some beef and chicken ones that if you chop em in half or even more they dryish meat type so tastey but dont get sweaty when its hot
    meat i just dry it, i do but tend to use within a few days as its only our left overs.

    I left a bag of those for Bev when she came here – she said they came out exactly the way they went in  :-X 

    I would think Pepperami have alot of salt in too  :-\
