Delicious Homemade Dog Treats – Liver

Liver (any type) to slice thinly

Dehydrator or oven
Extra rack for oven drying
Air tight container


To make your delicious dog treat recipe start by slicing the liver into thin slices five to six millimeters- or ¼ inch- in width.

When you are done slicing the liver, place it in your dehydrator according to manufacturer’s directions or on a rack in your oven that will expose it to maximum air flow. Using a pan tends to give only one side of the sliced liver access to dry air; however, it is still possible to create the snacks in this way. You will simply have to spend a lot of time making sure each side gets the proper amount of drying time.

The oven should then be turned on but set to the lowest possible temperature, such as 130-150 degrees Fahrenheit or 50-60 degrees Celsius. Keep in mind a higher temperature will cook your dog treat recipe when what is actually needed is a temperature that will slowly pull the moisture out of the liver.

The oven will need to be opened quite often so that pulled out moisture can escape and the drying process can complete in a reasonable amount of time. Opening the oven may also be necessary if your unit does not go below the 200 degrees Fahrenheit mark.

When the liver is dry to the touch and reasonably firm, your dog treat recipe is finished. Many choose to cut the jerky like treats with scissors into manageable bite size pieces. If the pieces seem wet at all, return them to the oven so they can dry a bit longer; however, the treats should not be rock hard or brittle.

Remember that there are no dangerous preservatives to give your treats the unnaturally long shelf life store bought treats would have. Therefore, be sure to store your dog treat recipe in an airtight container in the refrigerator and use judiciously throughout the week. If you find you have made a surplus of treats, they can also be conveniently stored in your freezer.

Homemade Healthy Dog Treats for Walks, Dog Training and Spoiling Your Dog or Puppy

Your homemade dog liver treats can be taken with you and used during training exercises or just whenever you and your companion are out for walks. However, it is important to include what you use into the sum of organ meat totals in your dog’s daily diet (if you feed a raw food diet).  This ensures your dog’s diet does not get overbalanced on weeks when extensive training requires a good amount of treats to be used.
