    I just thought I would share my own dog food treats with you. I made a decision along time ago to only ever make them myself. I buy and slow roast pork rinds, the ones that have no bone, and then cut them into small peices and keep in fridge for the dogs. I not only get the dogs hanging around for them to cook I also get the humans. Very tasty and great source of animal fat to protect thier hearts. I also boil up chicken thighs and cut up small to keep in fridge for them. Inexpensive and great for the lab that has dermatitis. She really only has those two sources of meat due to her allergies. Thanks for your great articles.

    I feed a raw food diet——For easy natural treats: 1. raw chicken gizzards, cut into bite-size pieces—freeze on a cookie sheet (space apart) and when frozen, place in freezer bag or container and give thawed as many as needed at a day or two’s worth in the refrigerator. 2. Can do same with chicken liver or hearts—even beef liver (best organic though) 3. Make bite-size meatballs from ground beef or ground turkey or chicken and freeze as stated above. All this is raw but if you “must” have cooked–you can! 4. You can also use a food dehydrator to do thin strips of meat as pork or beef from roasts, etc.—like jerky almost without the salty sauce addition of course! 5. Cooked chicken breast cut into bite-sized pieces. Stay away from salt and grains!

    Just to add what I just posted above—–You can grind up (mini food processor) real, real fine–raw carrot or broccoli, zucchini (raw veggies) and add to the meatballs idea stated above post.
