Making Dog Treats

Step 1: Raise and butcher your own steer and hogs for about 6 years. 

Step 2: Never eat the heart or liver because that's just gross. 

Step 3: Clean out your freezer and thaw all the hearts and livers you've collected for the last 6 years.  It will be 10 or 15 lbs of organ meat.

Step 4: Fry it all up. 


Cook it all the way to the well done, rubbery stage or it will be difficult to cut into tiny pieces.


Step 5: Cut it all up. 

Cut it as tiny as you can. Our bits did get bigger and bigger as we went along.  

 Step  6: Bag it all up and freeze. 

ClaireAnna helped chop and bag.

Thirty-seven cups of liver/ heart dog treats, individually bagged and ready for the freezer.
This looks like a lot, but when you are working with a dog every day, you can go through a lot of dog treats!  We'll use about a bag a day between the two puppies and Shani, who is not in training, but gets some anyway because I love her.  So at least for the next 37 days, I will not need to buy any Pupperonis!
