There are moments when you need a piece of something very tasty to coax your dog away from a rabbit (or a fox, in Lily’s case). These treats are very easy to make and you can make them plain and simple or sprinkle them with a teaspoon of dried alfalfa, aniseed, parsley or garlic powder before you put them into the oven.
200 g (7 oz) chicken livers
1 teaspoon alfalfa, aniseed, parsley or garlic powder
Kcals/100 g (4 oz): 425
1. Preheat the oven to 180 ̊C (350 ̊C/gas 4). Line a baking tin with greaseproof paper.
2. Pop the livers into a saucepan of boiling water for 5 minutes. This makes them much easier to slice. (You can just chop them without boiling them, but they are rather slithery.)
3. Once they are roughly chopped, put them into the prepared baking tin and place in the oven for 45 mins–1 hour. You need the livers to be nicely dried out so they will keep well.
4. Once the liver pieces are dried out, remove them from the oven and let them cool in the tray. You can keep them in an airtight container in the fridge for 2 weeks or freeze them for up to 2 months.
If you don't have the time to make your own liver treats, we have created our own chewy bite-sized pieces of yumminess. They're made from 100% naturally air dried beef liver - just pure and natural little treats with nothing added.
They'll help keep your dog in tip top condition and they're bursting with meaty flavour too.
