|Botox||Thank you! This is my first dog and love her to death, her training is coming along quite well. She is now 16 weeks and still has a short attention span. But without distractions I can get her to do a very long sit and she can do all the basic stuff. The chicken pieces have definitely helped when out on walks training her to be quiet and not bark at people. Yesterday I just sat at the corner and fed her treats as people walked by. about 15 people passed and she only really barked at one woman. Her formal classes start in about 3 weeks!|

Here is my eeezy-peezy cost effective, high value, home made treat recipe!
Non Stick Fry Pan
Large Round Steak or Pork Chops or Calves Liver or Lamb
1. Trim off all fat on the edges and in-between and if it has bone, remove that too. If using Calves Liver, thaw, and blot well with paper towel to remove excess blood.
2. Take a pair of scissors (outstanding tool for cutting meat) and cut the meat into manageable pieces.
3. Choose a fry pan (non stick works the easiest) that will hold the amount of meat you bought, and give the pan a small drop of oil or a quick spray of Pam.
4. Heat the pan until really hot and drop in the meat pieces in to sizzle. Keep your heat high but dont leave the pan unattended.
5. Sprinkle on a little garlic powder or garlic salt if desired.
6. Let it sizzle for about a minute or two then flip over. Braise the other side (pour off the juice if there is too much) and remove from pan when the middle is pink (especially the Liver or it will crumble). Place on to paper towel, blot and let cool.
7. Take your scissors and cut all of the meat in strips about ¼ wide. Now take those strips and cut small pieces about the size of a ½ of a dime, (or whatever size you prefer).
8. Place small amounts into sealable snack baggies, then place those baggies into a sealable freezer baggie and place in freezer. When you need them, take out one or two baggies, place them in the frig and they will un-thaw. Of course the dogs love them frozen too, if you forget! They will unthaw quickly on the cupboard or in your pocket for training.
The process takes a little time but saves a lot of $$ and the dogs go crazy for them!
BONE APPETIT MY FURRY FRIENDS!

|Okin||Her favorite is boiled chicken or cut up hotdogs I use the Nathan's. For ones in bags she like the Grain Free Buddy Biscuits by Cloud Star or treats from Wellness. I usually break those both up in to smaller pieces.|

|Botox||I went and bought a big bag of all natural chicken breasts they are 7 dollars for the bag and has 10 breasts, each breast makes about 60 to 100 treats depending on size and she goes nuts, so I think I found my treat cost effective and she loves em!|

|natalie559||Food Rolls! I've heard the natural balance ones are too crumbly, I've used and liked Pet Botanics and Red Barn.|

|Botox||All great ides thank you everyone! I Just enrolled her at the local club today for her first bit of classes, though I have got her to be able to do all of the basics myself, a bit of professional help with long stays and better attention is something I need to get down before I continue granted she is only 15 weeks her attention span doesn't last long. I appreciate the input everyone!|

|Springbrz||I've used hot dogs. Wellness bites...I cut them into tiny pieces to get more bang for the buck). But store brand cheddar cheese cut in tiny cubes seems to be a favorite. A pound of cheddar cubed into tiny 1/4 in cubes makes a lot of treats.|
