These tuna training treats will knock your dogs hat off! We train a lot for all our sports, so we are on the lookout for new training treats. Mom has heard a lot about some treats made with tuna that dogs are absolutely nuts about, but she has never gotten the recipe. Well, now she has the recipe from a nose work friend, Kathy, and I’m making them!
How To Make Tuna Training Treats
Any dog can make these treats because they are super simple, yet tasty! All you need is two cans of tuna, two eggs, and two cups of flour…a mixing bowl, spoon, parchment paper, and a cookie sheet. I think most everyone has these items on hand.
I mixed the tuna and eggs, then added in the flour. Of course, baking is a self rewarding behavior, so do not forget to taste the dough! See my tongue? Holy moly, it is super long because the dough tastes so good that I want more than just a taste!
Next I had to put the dough on the parchment paper and roll it out to about a quarter inch thick. It is a bit sticky, so I added some flour to the top of it before I rolled it. The shape you roll it into isn’t important. I wanted a rectangle, but got more of a unique shape.
Once that baby is popped into the oven it is time to lick off the spoon, and clean out the mixing bowl – YUM!
As soon as the tuna training treats come out of the oven, you need to get them off the cookie sheet and cut them into the size of treats you would like. I did like two inches long and half an inch wide so Mom can hold them in her hand and break them into smaller pieces as needed. One thing humans love about these treats is that they don’t crumble in their pockets, and they are not greasy.
The Taste Test
Always keep a close eye on your tuna training treats! Kitty Sophie is the most finicky eater in the family, and never eats treats. Well, look at her now…a real live cat burglar is what these treats have made her into! Where is Bert, you ask? He is always locked up when we cook because he is a menace in the kitchen.
Finally, it is time for me to taste the final product! By the way, if your dog can’t have regular flour, you can substitute whatever you usually use into the recipe.
Oh my heavens, these tuna training treats feel like they are about to knock my hat off! I’m so enjoying my first little taste, can you tell?
Any yes, my hat is off, and I really don’t care. These treats are as good as the rumors I’ve heard in the past!
You should definitely make these for your pup, she will love them, as Sophie loves them, and even picky Madison snarfed hers down! Grab the recipe and get started baking!
