It works like a charm on everything I put in it. It held two entire chopped up deer lungs easy and had them well dried in about four hours. I've even dried tracheas in it. It's saved me hundreds of dollars easy at this point, and the treats it produces are much healthier than most things I would buy.

I could just boil the meat, but I really like it dehydrated because it saves all the oily/wet mess you get in a treat bag and on your hands from boiled or pan-fried meat.

And yeah, the tripe was pretty bad. I've done it one more time since then with the dehydrator running in the garage instead of in the house, but the tripe is still just a bit too rank for my taste even after it's dried. I thought the worst food I ever smelled was going to be durian, but the tripe is above and beyond that!

sabledog3 Hot dogs or just plain biscuits, he loves little dog bone biscuits for some reason. If I don't feel like using treats or don't have them,I use the freedom to sniff as a reward

jme12 Blue cheese. My GSD stopped paying attention to a RABBIT for blue cheese.

All my dogs LOVE those!
Laurie, how long do you microwave them to make them crunchy

You are a generous owner; once is one too many for me. I have a cheap cleaver & old cutting board whose life purpose are only to slice frozen green tripe rolls. I am Asian and have eaten some gnarly & disgusting stuff, but even I balk at green tripe.

I used to use NB rolls, but my dog actually got bored with them as bait for our tracking. So, now we use turkey hotdogs as HV treats and the remaining NB as food reward for obedience training.

I am tempted to purchase a dehydrator now.
