There is one thing that dogs love – liver cake!  I will admit, I had never heard of it until I had starting working with dogs but honestly if you want your dog to do something, make some liver cake and they’ll do anything to get some!

Bailey waiting patiently for liver cake!

It is really easy to make and you can keep it in the freezer for up to 2 months.  I make a batch up, cut it up into small pieces (about 1cm square), pop it into small bags and then freeze it.  Each day I’m walking dogs, I take out a bag the night before and then use them for recall, etc.  Please note that I usually break each treat into several pieces so the dog only gets a small piece at a time. The smaller the treat, the more likely they are to do what I need them to!

You can also buy liver cake from Wear for Walkies (where I sell my handmade collars and leads) on https://wearforwalkies.com/products/taggarts-liver-cake-collection-only

One batch makes enough treats for around a month!  After a few of my clients have nagged me for the recipe – here goes!


450 g liver – chicken or lamb

450g self raising flour (or gluten free flour if you have a dog with allergies)

3 large eggs

1 tsp of lazy garlic (whoa, I hear you, garlic may be bad for your dog – however it hasn’t been proved and if you’re worried, just leave it out!)

About 100 ml of water

1.  Liquidise the liver and garlic in a liquidiser for a few minutes into a smooth consistency.

2.  Add the flour, eggs and water to a cake batter consistency. Liquidise for a few seconds until well mixed.

3.  Pour into a well greased baking tray (32 cm x 24 cm).

4.  Bake at 180 degrees for around 40 minutes.  Test by pressing down on the cake.  It should bounce back up when pressed lightly.
