I always try to find fishy treats for the dogs, but when I manage to find them they cost a bomb, and I'm not sure they really have enough fish in them anyway, so I decided to make some myself....
As soon as I opened the tin of pilchards in brine, I had the attention of the proposed recipients !!

I mixed up the fish with some flour, rolled oats, olive oil and water and turned it into marbles....

I have to be careful how much to give them but used to bake liver until it was dry. They loved them of course but the house smelled of liver. :)

All dogs love liver, but you do have to be especially careful ... it gives them the runs :oops:

Hi,

Bron and I no longer have a cat but still spend a fortune every week feeding all the wildlife and cats that come from miles away.

Can I please suggest a really good treat for a dog; "CRIMINALS LEGS".

Kind regards, Colin.

I would buy my boys the hard dog biscuits, the kind good for their teeth. Would use them in training sessions, of find it games. I could scrap the biscuit on my shoe and shuffle around the yard , then hide one . release him from a sit stay to go find it. He loved that game. There is also that hard rubber dog toy , called Kong, its usually red. Has a hole at the top, can shove biscuits in there and they worked for a good 20 mins getting them all out.

Sam loves fish. I might try this marble thing but with something like catfish...........which also gives me a good reason to go fishing.

Any fish is good, as long as it is properly boned. Small fish bones could cause a lot of nasty problems. I choose pilchards because, as well as being good and oily, it costs relatively less to buy it - ready to use.

We use this recipe, but without the Garlic, substituting fresh caught Mackerel (from Chesil Beach) for the Tuna, and using eggs from our hens.


But at the moment we're stocking up on freebies from https://waggfoods.com/#dogtreatspromowagg

One bag per email, we have 300+ emails, coupons are printed to file and then 'snipped' and printed out at 3 per page to save on ink.

Our cats love treats. Among favorites are the water from water packed tuna, ham scraps, cooked salmon bits, and for Timi, oyster crackers or black oil sunflower seeds stolen from the platform bird feeder. Timi has strange tastes . . . .
We are careful to not give them anything too rich, bony, or sweet. They love the Purina treats, and when those are on sale, I stock up.
