Pup Treats

Rio did have to control himself while I took pictures, but he got plenty of goodies in the process!

I tried out a new recipe for some treats! Salmon and sweet potato. I found a nice collection of dog treat recipes here: http://www.puppyleaks.com/simple-dog-treat-recipes/

The recipe I used is one that list here is the link to the recipe: http://kolchakpuggle.com/2014/06/brownies-dogs-salmon-sweet-potato-dog-treat-recipe.html

I train with Rio’s kibble as much as I can, but sometimes you just need to up the reinforcement value such as when you are working in a more challenging environment or when you have a particularly difficult training task, a so-called “expensive” behavior 🙂

Just a little closer . . .

Pup really likes these and they were very easy to make. Mine turned out really soft and gummy but I had a pretty large sweet potato. If your dog is on a special diet, be sure to talk to your vet before trying out new foods. Canned fish can be high in sodium so keep this in mind when using these tasty treats.
