Olivia is making simple homemade dog training treats today. She loves to eat, so cooking is an activity that is in her dog house. Since she is pretty young to cook on her own, Bailie, who also loves to eat, is helping her out. Laurel and Hardy are going to attempt to make some treats.
With all our sports and a puppy in the house, we go through training treats like crazy! To keep costs down, and feed us healthy treats, Mom started buying thinly sliced chicken, pork, or beef. A package costs around five dollars and will provide training treats for us for about a week. Besides the meat, you need a knife, cutting board, and a frying pan.
Madison is too young to be using knives, so Bailie diced up the meat of choice this week, chicken. She cut each breast into about half inch pieces. The chicken cooks faster, and we find it easier to dice it before cooking. One great thing about the meat pieces is they can be pulled apart into super tiny pieces for training.
Next, Bailie put the chicken in the frying pan, and cooked it all up. Olivia is too little to work with the stove too, but Bailie doesn’t mind helping her out. The small pieces cook up quickly.
Olivia sniffed her way back to the kitchen for the taste testing. She loves the chicken. It’s super simple to make, and the whole process for the package of chicken was under half an hour. We freeze the pieces in portions to keep them fresh. Emma made some good lamb treats a couple years ago. They were also really yummy! Would you make these simple homemade dog training treats for your pup?
We’re thankful for good treats, so we’re joining joining the Brian’s Home Blog Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
