2. Yummy Liver Treats

Ingredients:

Liver of any type, thinly sliced to 1/4 inch or 5-6 mm

Implements:

– Dehydrator or oven
– Extra rack for oven drying
– Scissors
– Sharp knife
– Air tight container

Directions:

Making all natural healthy homemade organic dog treat recipes starts with slicing the liver into thin portions with a very sharp knife no more than five to six millimeters or 1/4 of an inch in width. Any thicker than this will sabotage the drying process.

Once the liver is thinly sliced, follow the manufacturer’s directions for drying if you are using a dehydrator. If using an oven, place the liver evenly on an extra rack, exposing it to maximum air flow. If you must use a pan, keep in mind this only gives one side of the sliced liver access to dry air. You will have the additional step of frequently turning the liver slices to ensure each side gets the proper amount of exposure to dry air.

The oven should be preset set to the lowest possible temperature of 130-150 degrees Fahrenheit or 50-60 degrees Celsius. Do not attempt a higher temperature than this as it will only cook the nutrients right out of your all natural dog treats. The main goal is to merely slowly pull the moisture out of the liver slices.

Opening the oven frequently ensures moisture can escape and the drying process will be completes in a reasonable amount of time. This may also be a necessary step if your oven does not offer a temperature below 200 degrees Fahrenheit.

A finished product is one that is dry to the touch and reasonably firm. You can cut your all natural dog treats into manageable bite size pieces using scissors or a very sharp knife. Should the pieces still seem to be soggy or moist, return them to the oven for a while longer. However, do not allow the treats to become rock hard or brittle as this poses a choking hazard for your dog.

Be sure to store your healthy homemade organic dog treat recipes in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Bear in mind that there are no preservatives to give your treats the abnormally long shelf life that store bought treats offer. A surplus of treats can be easily stored in your freezer.

Your all natural dog treats can be used during training exercises or simply when you and your canine companion are out for a routine daily stroll. Be sure to include what you use in the sum of organ meat totals of your dog’s daily diet. This ensures a diet does not get overbalanced on weeks when a good amount of treats are used for extensive training routines.
