I made liver treats exactly once, and I will never do it again. It stank up the entire house. If you can stand the smell, go for it. My dog loved them, but now I go for baked treats. I'll see if I can dig up the recipe.

I used to make my own dog biscuits. Everyone liked them, even the teenage boys!

My little dog gets treats everytime he comes in from outside. Naturally, he gained weight. The vet told me that a dog doesn't realize one treat is bigger than another;all they know is they get a treat. He suggested giving a cheerio (1) each time he comes in. My dog is excited to have the cheerio-sometimes I "splurge" and give him 2 or 3 which is healthier than bones each time.

I agree with the green beans, my dog Tucker loves them!
Treats are a good thing to give your dog, in moderation.

I give my pets delicious meals -- twice a day -- early morning and early evening -- with nothing in between -- why introduce bad habits? Giving treats once a month or once every two months may not be such a bad idea. I want them hungry for their nourishing meals -- if i give them treats all day, will they be hungry for good food?

Here's directions for making liver treats (cooking liver and drying it in the oven):

www.ehow.com/how_2097587_liver-treats-dog.html

and various recipes can be found here:

www.dogaware.com/treatref.html

I couldn't find directions it, but some people make liver treats (chunks of dried liver) using their microwave ovens rather than convential ovens.

If you have a Great Harvest bread store wherever you live they have cheap dog treats. I bet you could google some recipies or search some on cooks.com. I think there's some with peanut butter...
Another thing is my friends dog LOVES cat treats!
