    Defaulttraining treats

    Where do you get dried liver treats? I have been using pupperoni treats for training but my dog's focuse is lost in class and I thought I would up the treat...I have heard great things about dried liver but can you buy it somewhere?

    PetsMart has freeze dried liver treats. They are a little pricey but they last a really long time. My guys are NUTS for them!

    That's where I get them too. http://www.petsmart.com/global/produ...iver&N=2023689
    Brigetta goes loves them.
    I also use Solid Gold Tiny Tots and the Solid Gold Turkey Jerky for training (I get them at a locally owned pet store).

    Have you tried thinly-sliced hot dogs sprinkled with garlic and baked for half an hour? That's the standard at our house. The cheesy hot dogs are especially popular!

    Dan, I want to invent a hot dog slicer that slices the dog into dime-sized slices in one stroke. I will sell it on Animal Planet.

    I buy super cheap hot dogs and slice them then and nuke them on a paper plate.
    I lay a paper towel on the paper plate, then the hot dogs, then another paper towel. Keep an eye on them or they will burn!!!!!!!!!!
    Let them set out for a bit until cool but them in a freezer container and store in your fridge. Cheaper than liver treats and equally effective.

    I do the hot dogs too. Most of the time, treats are steak braised in garlic butter.

    Thanks for the suggestions...I have tried hot dogs before and they worked great until he grew tired of them or something. I have had a hard time finding something to motivate him in class because all he wants to do is go greet every dog. I had heard no dog can refuse dried liver so I will stop at petsmart tomorrow and see what they have.
