  • Do you have a go-to treat for your dogs, or mix it up?
    We use it for a variety of things, including drying herbs and fruit. Biltong is our main focus though (I eat more than Lilly does!)

    Hi Aimee. Lilly's biltong is really plain. I slice silverside or topside into 1.5 - 2cm thick pieces which are then dipped in or brushed with brown vinegar. After very lightly salting them (to help cure the meat) I put them in the food drier. They develop a rich beefy flavour as they dry. After 4-5 days I take them out and chop them into treat sized pieces.

    Our Lilly gets a wide range of treats. Her favourite is biltong, a South African delicacy which is a much better version of jerky. We use this while training Lilly (really we give it to her while she trains us). I have to make a batch specially for her as our hooman version is too spicy.
    She also gets a daily orange bone (carrot) and loves random fruit and veges while helping her mom cook (she is a very eager kitchen assistant).
    Sam has also found a wonderful pet cook book so makes batched of treats that range from peanut butter and banana treats to watermelon ice-cream.
    The one thing any pup can't do without is her pupachino in the morning. Puppy milk and ground liver. Sadly we have made the cardinal error of leaving the liver shaker near the hooman coffee machine. I shall leave it there...
