Sometimes, if i don't have really have anything great to use for dog treats, i take an idea of Tx_cowgirls, and change it very slightly, and made some "Dog Granola". This treat takes 2 minutes to make. I took some of Buddy's kibble, put it into a plastic bag and crushed it into small bits (not powder, just small bits) by hammering it with a coffee cup, and into that i mix in one small spoonful of peanut butter, and mixed it all together on a plate. You could also mix it up inside of a bag, i guess, by squishing the bag around. You can also use a lil bit of raw oats in the mix, too, or throw in bits of meat, too. I usually just use my bare hand to mix it up on a plate, and let Buddy lick my hands and the plate clean after he does some tricks.and i put it all into a sandwich bag, and gave him lil bits of it for prizes. This looks like "granola" when i am done, He loves it, as he adores ~peanut butter~ with all his heart. THIS IS KINDA MESSY, but, it works in a pinch when you are out of homemade dog treats and have no meat in the house. It's great for training oudoors, and not to worry, if you use it indoors, and drop some crumbs, dog will clean this up for you. You can make it drier or gooey-er by adding more or less crushed up kibble to the small spoonful of peanut butter. I store rest of bag in fridge, or freezer, and when chilled, this IS a bit less messy.
