Tuna Fudge is a favorite dog treat recipe of both our dogs and the Wags & Wiggles family in attendance at dog agility trials. It’s nutritious and easy to make. The dogs crowd around us in anticipation of their tasty reward.
We have had great success with this dog treat recipe as a training tool for finicky dogs who are not normally inspired by treats.
Below is the version we have more-or-less perfected. A 15oz can of Salmon (in place of tuna) also works out well. You could probably substitute with rice flour if your dog has wheat issues, but you may have to play with the consistency a bit.
Tuna Fudge Dog Treat Recipe
Put the ingredients in a food processor and process lightly to break up big chunks of tuna and mix it well. If you don’t have a food processor, break up the tuna with a fork, and then add in the other ingredients.
The consistency should be thick, but moist, similar to cookie dough. If it looks too dry, add a little bit of water to moisten it.
Spray or lightly coat a 9×9 baking dish or pie pan with olive oil. Pour the mixture into your pan and spread it evenly with a spatula.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
Let it sit until cool and then cut into bite size treats! They will keep in the fridge for about a week. You can also freeze them to extend their life.
This dog treat recipe makes 1.5 – 2 cups of 1/4 inch cubed treats.
