Baked Liver Dog Training Treats

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by sheepdoc

Just plain dried liver. I use rabbit liver because that's what we have but you could use beef, pork, or lamb. I'm not sure chicken would work because it's softer.

We pay about $20 for maybe a four cup or little larger container of these treats at our local pet store. These treats cost us a lot less and our german shepherd, Breah, loved them. I have to admit I didnt want to cut the liver into pieces so I asked the butcher and he did that for me. So much more economical and better for our pets to make their treats.
