|Well the absolute easiest would be plain cooked meat. I have slow cooked scrambled egg so it was a little dried out, that is super easy. I have made a peanut butter sandwich, smashed it flat and cut into little bits. Put a slice of cheese between slices of bread, melt in the microwave and smash flat, that is very tasty according to the dogs. I cut the sandwiches into strips and pinch off bits for training, you could store in the freezer as you have a smaller dog than I do.
I always have the ingredients for tuna jerky but it is more trouble. Can of tuna, a minced garlic clove or bit of garlic powder is optional, an egg, some flour and about a tablespoon of vegetable oil is also optional.
Mix the wet stuff [use the tuna water] together, add flour until forms a stiff dough, knead like it is bread, make a pizza crust with it, score into strips or squares and bake for about 15 minutes at 350*. Count on needing 2-3 cups of flour. You can just spread the sticky dough out but if you knead it you can scrape the bowl and your fingers and all that clean and incorporate into the dough so clean up is much easier.
Cut apart and either bake again until hard or use soft for training treats. I always store home made goodies in the freezer just in case.
You can mix any flavoring in with the egg and flour. I have used liver and ground meat but peanut butter, pureed meats or veggies would work. I made banana or oyster cookies for Sassy. Oyster cookies were green! You would just get different amounts of treats. Keep the wet stuff to about 1/2 a cup or you will be overwhelmed and possibly run out of flour. A pound of beef liver makes a huge amount of treats!
