    Ok, I am starting basic obedience training with Laika tomorrow night.. my only problem is that right now she's on an allergy elimination diet, so she can't have any of the "normal" meats (beef, pork, chicken, turkey, etc) so hot dogs, dried liver, and all of the more successful training treats are out.
    Does anyone have a suggestion as to what to use? I was thinking fruit (apples, bananas) but I know that's just not going to be interesting enough for her as it is not very smelly.

    Any help?

    hey thanks!

    How would you go about making those biscuits? Cheese is out because she can't have dairy... but I'll give the biscuits a try.

    Bananas are kind of smelly, but boy are they messy!

    What about freezing the fruit and taking it out right before you walk out the door?

    The only other thing I can think of is to dry the fruit . . . the same way you would dry the meat treats.

    It's really easy to make dog biscuits and when you make your own, you know that they are made with quality ingredients.

    Here are a few sites to get you started:

    http://www.recipesource.com/misc/pet-food/dog/

    http://www.pomerama.com/pomtreat.htm

    You can make them fancy if you want by using a bone shaped cookie cutter, but I am lazy and I just cut them into squares using a pizza cutter. I usually do the final rolling out right on the cookie sheet and then I cut them up. If you are using them for training treats, I would roll them very thin and cut them into very small pieces.

    Happy baking! :)
