This OK for training treats?

OK, so Cullen and Gizmo at the moment are eating... TOTW kibble with a small amount of canned mixed in... and RAW at night ( pretty much, i split the rec. of each in half). I am keeping everything grain free.

As far as training treats, I noticed almost EVERYTHING at the store had grain, except jerky type of things, so I bought some pork livers at the butcher ( they are like.. 3 dollars per pack which are HUGE and buy one get one on top of that) and threw it in the oven, cooking until firm. After cooling, i sliced the " harder" outside off and put that in ziplocs as Gizmo's milkbone replacement, and then cut the "inside" up into small cubes as training treats.

They LOVE them, I just want to make sure they are OK! I know it sounds stupid, but just want to make sure.

That is not stupid, that is a good idea! That is what you want to do. I don't use liver products, I bake up chicken breast and cut them into cubes.

OK good! LOL. I just wanted to make sure. I would be the one that did it only to find out that cooked liver is bad for them or something!

Works wonders. He LOVES the cooked liver, as does Gizmo ( but she was given people food and scraps before so she eats anything). He will sit on a dime for one.

If it's okay for them raw I simply cannot imagine it being bad for them cooked! Plus, they actually sell liver treats at the Petsmart near me so I can't imagine there being a problem with it.

Oh yea.. I completely had a brain fart about the freeze dried and such that they sell...

This is way cheaper and I know there aren't grains or preservatives!!!!
