Lol liver is a laxative, in raw feeding you use it to balance out the bone, anything that can soften bony shits will be an owners worst nightmare as treats

Before I got a dehydrator, I routinely used the oven to make jerky treats for the dogs

I have a pretty old oven and the lowest setting is 200. I would set it at 200 degrees and leave the oven door slightly open.
I used chicken, beef, liver, sweet potatoes, and turkey. It needs to be cooked on a rack so that the air can circulate around the meat.
Make sure that the meat is as dry as possible. After I slice mine, I lay it out on paper towels before putting it on the drying racks.
Best to do in the winter so that it will also heat your kitchen.
I store mine in the freezer till I am ready to use them.

I don't like to cook them because it takes away a lot of nutrition I figure if your gonna treat them it should also be healthy

I have an inexpensive Nesco dehydrator that I got several years ago at Bed Bath and Beyond. I dehydrate sweet potatoes, chicken and steak (really thin cheap cuts - $6 for a package) as my really good girl treats for going in your crate - she hates going in and for doing something really special. I dehydrate hot dogs for training treats. I cut them lenghtwide into quarters and then slice each one into 12-14 pieces. A package will last me all week at least. I put everything in at night and put it on high. Done in the morning.
