  • Cut mixture with a chef's knife, or pizza cutter, into small pieces (about the size of a thumbnail). 
    Cutting Homemade Dog Training Treats
  • Return cut treats to baking dish and bake at reduced temperature of 275 degrees for an additional 40-60 minutes. Check dog treats at 40 minutes, and every 5 minutes thereafter, until treats are dried and golden brown. The treats will continue to dry out as they cool.

*Some dogs may have allergies to different kinds of flours. So, monitor your dog when giving them treats made with flour. Whole-grain, nut, or all-purpose flours may be suitable for your dog. 
**I like to use sharp cheddar cheese for these treats, but the smellier the cheese used the better! 
Storage: treats can be refrigerated for up to a week, or they can be frozen for up to a month!
