With reference to the dehydrated liver that JanaeUlva mentioned.... I've also dehydrated liver but in the oven. I first boiled it on the stove until it's not bleeding anymore (blah!) then cut it up in tiny pieces and load up the cookie sheet. Oven at 200-250° for however long. I look for a crispy texture so it's closer to 2 hours- rubbery would be less. Store in freezer. Traveler will do just about anything for them. Tracking is easier since they are "aromatic" after thawing out a bit. I use the liver water as broth on his kibble.
I'd like to see HITT video also. This is the first I've heard of it.

One last tip on dehydrating liver - use the jelly roll tray and lightly oil it before putting the liver on there. I buy packs of 4 frozen sliced liver, do 8 at a time. That meant i had to get a second jelly roll tray. The hydrator usually comes with one. Dehydrate on high for at least 24 hours, I usually go about 28 hours until the liver is really dry. Break it up into little pieces and put into a plastic bag (gallon size) then I keep it in the freezer between use.

...I'm going to invest in a dehydrator! The ones I've seen aren't that expensive. That sounds great as Ilda doesn't like the freeze dried treats as you note below.
And thanks Packen for your tips.

The other methods typically will get the dog to the end of the track quicker but not using this level of detailed search that is required in our sport. Have you used the HITT method and if so did you see the dog check every footstep? If so then I will definitely consider it.

|Packen||Cool Jane, will try it out for sure. I have not even seen white pepper!|

Have you tried using white pepper to keep the ants away...I've heard it does work. Sprinkle pepper in your bait bag so it coats the food.
My dog won't pick up food on the track hardly ever, so I haven't used it even though I bought a can a couple yrs ago.
