Many dogs have an affinity for fish, which is why we wanted to share this simple dog treat recipe submitted by Karen Pryor Academy (KPA) Certified Training Partner (CTP) Marie Devaney. Marie’s dog-training clients love this recipe because it makes a ton of treats that are easy to handle, don’t crumble, and freeze well! The “fudge” is great to use as a training reward or “anytime” treat!
Tuna or Salmon Fudge
2 6-oz cans undrained tuna or 1 15-oz can undrained salmon (look for salmon that is deboned)
1 ½ cups flour
¼ cup parmesan cheese
1 - 2 tsp garlic powder*
Mix all ingredients together and press into a greased 9” x13” pan (mixture will be stiff). Bake at 350º for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool. Cut into narrow strips, then dice strips into small cubes. Refrigerate or freeze.
*Garlic can be toxic to dogs. The concern is typically with large quantities of fresh garlic, not garlic seasoning. Ask your veterinarian if garlic seasoning is appropriate for your pet. Or, just leave it out of the recipe and make your fudge garlic-free!
