Was wondering if anyone here feeds chicken livers to their Havs? I added some cooked chicken liver to Beamers food this weekend and HE LOVED IT!! he actually ate all his food really fast..which is soooo not like him..

Thanks!

My dogs get chicken and beef liver as treats for any training and sometimes a little in their meals. All of my dogs love it.

They are not too crazy about cooked liver, but they love the freeze dried beef liver treats. Go figure.

I would not feed a lot of liver, it could give him diarrhea, give very small amounts. I can make a quarter size of beef liver or one chicken liver last for a whole training session.

The only liver I've given Nico is freeze dried liver treats. Although he likes most treats, he does not like freeze dried liver. It's supposed to be the cadillac of treats, but he turns his nose up at it.

Sandi,
For training how do you cook it? Do you add anything?

I usually just bake @ 350 until they have a dry but soft texture. I have cooked in the microwave, but prefer the oven method. I may add a little bit of garlic powder not garlic salt, this week I even put a little ground cumin on it. Smarty will eat plain with seasoning. Be sure to pierce the chicken livers or they may burst in the oven.

I make a liver treat that you have to puree the chicken livers-talk about GROSS! But they love it so much, that i just try not to look at it. They literally go nuts over it.
