This is a wonderful training treat for dogs. It has the consistency of fudge so you can break off different sized pieces and the dogs can eat them quickly without a mess. It is also "smelly" so your dog can anticipate the treat! You must store it in the refrigerator or freezer.
- 2 (6 ounce) cans tuna (do not drain)
- 1 1⁄2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1⁄4 cup parmesan cheese
- Mix all ingredients with an electric mixer until well blended.
- Spread mixture into a greased 9x9 cake pan.
- Bake covered at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
- Store in refrigerator or freeze.
Excellent training reward for my flyball pups. I have made it with salmon and even canned ham or turkey too! Sometimes I omit the garlic other times I add in whatever herbs I've got handy. I make it in small "loaves" then wrap the extras up and freeze them. I just pull out and defrost when I need a new chunk. The dogs drool puddles by the stove as this is cooking.
I felt like baking some stress away. So I decided to make these. Being a vegetarian I didn't have eggs so I substituted garbanzo bean flour and water. I also didn't have canned tuna so I used my dogs canned food. It turned out pretty well. I will buy the actual ingredients next time I grocery shop and try the actual recipie. We avoid using garlic for the dogs so that won't be apart of our recipes.
I just made these for our pooches, and I have to say, they went over very well - I even like them! Mods that I made were, I ran out of WW flour, so I added coconut flour instead, thus had to add a little milk to bring up the moisture. I too added pumpkin puree, roughly 1/3 cup, and skipped the garlic. Another hit! Thank you!
