Professional dog trainers use plenty of treats for training new behaviors. One of our dog clients’ favorites is tuna fudge.
Tuna Fudge Recipe:
12 oz of tuna with the canned water (do not drain)
1 to 1.5 cups of flour
Mash tuna in a bowl or liquefy in a blender – add water as needed
Pour into a bowl – add flour
Spread into cookie sheet
Bake at 350 for 15 minutes – it will be the texture of putty
Cut into tiny squares (about the size of a pea). These can be frozen for storage
Note: you can always check with your veterinarian to get advice on what types of foods are okay for your dog to eat, and the amount that they can be served in a meal or training session.
