Every Tuesday one of the funniest dogs on the Internet, Kolchak the Puggle, shares some of his favourite treats and recipes. This series is such a hit, he has turned it into a blog hop so we can all share some of our dogs’ yummiest snacks.
Baking has been a hobby of mine for a long time. Once I discovered I could bake for my dog, I loved it even more. Shiva doesn’t care if the cheesecake doesn’t set or if the crust has turned to charcoal. No matter what I make for her, she gobbles it up as fast as she can. By far she is the best food critic ever.
I’ve shared this recipe before. As it’s my favourite and super-easy to make, I figured I may as well share it again. I attribute these treats with a lot of our training accomplishments. The batch I made this past weekend before the fun match served us very well. The stinkier, the better as far as my dog is concerned.
Here it is, the secret to our success:
Looks pretty tempting, doesn’t it? I bet your stomach is growling now.
2 cans of tuna (do not drain) or 15 oz can of salmon un-drained – I have also used canned chicken and turkey. Basically any meat in a can will do.
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup cheese – you can use any kind, I like parmesan because it is smelly
1 TBSP garlic powder – this is optional, I like to use it for the stink-factor
Mix all ingredients together and put in a greased 9×9 pan
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes
What I love the most is that you can cut the fudge into teeny tiny pieces. They smoosh and tear easily and thus are perfect for training. Once cut up, the pieces freeze very well. Depending on how often you train, one batch can last for a few months.
Or, for one agility match.
