    Once when I made some and took it to training I left it on the side and told everyone to help themselves. One of the handlers misunderstood and ate it themself :D

    Liver cake does work well and most dogs will sell their soul for it HOWEVER it smells worse than hellish and makes your house stink.

    IME sardine cake works just as well and doesn't smell quite so bad.

    Depends if you hate the smell of liver or fish worse though I suppose.

    I found the following:

    Tuna Training treats

    2 x 6oz cans tuna in water, do not drain
    2 eggs
    1 to 1 1/2 cups flour (rice flour is best but any kind will do)
    1 tbsp garlic powder (or a chopped up clove I'd have thought would be ok)
    parmesan cheese

    Mash tuna and water in a bowl with a fork to get the clumps out, then liquify in a blender or food processor. Add extra drops of water if needed to liquify completely. Pour into bowl and add flour, eggs and garlic. Consistency should be like a cake mix. Spread into greased or sprayed pan: I find that a round Pizza or suare cake tin is perfect. Sprinkle with LOTS of Parmesan cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes; edges will pull away and texture will be like putty. Use a pizza cutter and slice into teeny squares. These freeze beautifully and the dogs will love them.

    I actually put only half a teaspoon of garlic in as they stink, but the dogs do go mad for them!

    I use to buy chicken livers, chop them up small enough for treats and bake them in the oven until they were really dried and crunchy (about 4 hrs). Heidi loved them.
