Packworks & Tuna Brownies

My mind is just whirling from the weekend we had. Saturday we spent the entire day with Bonnie at Packworks for a Border Collie Seminar sponsored by our rescue organization. WOW! I am planning on posting a summary as soon as I can organize my thoughts. My brain is mush right now. If you are curious about Packworks in the meantime you can read their 'tech-lite' website here

Since I don't have anything of value to share - here is my favorite doggie training treat recipe.

We cannot live without these - they are perfect for just about any training situation. Ranger is sensitive to wheat & many treats contain wheat. The ones that do not are high in calories and high in price. So we make our own! Bonus - They are light enough to show up on just about any surface (i.e. grass, dirt, sawdust, artificial turf, rubberized flooring) and the dogs LOVE them!

Warning: Your house will REEK like tuna when these are in the oven. Suggestion: maybe toss a tuna casserole in the oven for dinner - you might as well go for the whole tuna experience.


Preheat oven to 250F

Drain 4 regular (5 or 6 oz) or two large cans of tuna and pour into mixing bowl
Mix in 4 eggs-include the crushed shells if you want more calcium.
Mix in 3 cup oat or rice four
Add 1 T garlic powder

Blend well, form into doughy ball. Divide into half. Spread each half about 1/4 inch thick on big greased cookie sheet. Bake about 25- 30 minutes or until golden. Cut into tiny squares before they get too cool (I use the rolling pizza slicer). Since they are made without preservatives and they contain moisture they must be refrigerated. Store in zip lock baggies in fridge or freezer.

Bone appetite!
