Yes I know, it’s for the dogs and not for you. Nevertheless there is no reason why you can’t try them out. I have to admit, liver cake isn’t as bad as it sounds… Good training treats are hard to find, so today’s terrific recipe is from the Lincs Greyhound Trust so get those aprons on and Let’s Get Cooking!
Following the success of last year’s liver cake recipe, we’ve got another great tasting recipe that’s guaranteed to satisfy your dog.
It’s easy to make tasty training treats for your dog and you will always know what ingredients are in them. The Scrumptious Sardine Slice recipe is a real favourite with the hounds in our kennels and we hope your dogs will enjoy it too.

Each year about 10,000 greyhounds retire from racing and, through charities like Lincolnshire Greyhound Trust, start their journeys to finding a forever home and becoming a family pet. Most greyhounds retire between the ages of 2 and 5 years, however some never make the grade for racing and retire at a much younger age. Since 1998 we’ve helped find homes for over 890 dogs and this year have found 120 homes. Greyhounds are generally very gentle dogs with a loving temperament and can make ideal companions for the elderly as they don’t require lots of exercise. Contrary to popular belief, many greyhounds can also live very happily with cats and other small furries. We ‘cat-test’ all the greyhounds in our care and have rehomed greyhounds to homes that have cats, chickens, rabbits and Chihuahuas. If you think you’d like to give a home to one of these gentle dogs, you can find out more at either Lincolnshire Greyhound Trust or the Retired Greyhound Trust.
