American dogs, like American people, are gaining more and more excess weight.

Let's begin with the more savory treats shall we? If you are having chicken for dinner then it will be a perfect time to prepare your doggie's little snack items as well. Cut the chicken you can spare in little strips and spread them over a baking sheet with plenty of cheese sprinkled on top of them. Bake them in a pre-heated oven of about 110°C until it becomes crisp. Let it cool and its ready to be served.
You can also put a beef heart or liver in boiling water and allow it to simmer for about two hours. By then it should be thoroughly cooked and ready. Remove from water and slice the organ meat into bite sized treats. Put these in an air tight container and freeze until you need it. Ensure that it is completely defrosted before serving to the eager puppy lest he suffers from indigestion and an iced jaw.
