Non-Doggy products put to good use?

Postby Amie » Tue Aug 12, 2008 9:05 am

When I saw this in Target, my first thought wasn't onions (though it's good for them, too) it was all those rolls of dog treats that make me late because I forgot to chop them up for class until the last minute.

I got one, brought it home, and love it. Now, when I get a two pound roll of dog treat, I slice it up

pop it on the "chop wizard" (or as I affectionately refer to it, "that funky as-seen-on-tv cutting thingy")
Image

and before long I've got a stash of training treats ready to go

The whole process takes about as much time as prepping for maybe two days worth of training would have "the old way" and I get nearly a week out of it.


Anyone else make any adjustments in the intended purpose that worked out perfectly for dog related use?

Pssstttt -- well now I know what those rolls are for. I keep looking at them wondering what they are. I just am always too embarrassed to ask anyone.

We use Red Barn brand, which claims on the label to be dog food, but is a good consistency for treats. He likes it a lot, it's firm enough that I can break it, it's not particularly greasy. I get it from our school, who sells it, but they just increased their prices (and pissed me off on another level, and I'm childish lol ) so I'll be looking around to see if there are better deals out there. I think you can get similar products at big pet chains Smart/Co.

But the cutting thingy would be good for hot dogs or other cooked meats, too (trust me when I say it would be ineffective with raw meat)

Well I just went and bought my first roll and am going to go look for one of these guys at Target this weekend. :D I have to say, it takes some getting used to to see how freely the term "bitch" is used in the doggie world. I just about lost my Sonic Cherry Limeade while reading the label last night. lol

Don't forget to factor it in to what you're feeding him! Keep an eye on his weight, and if he starts to pudge up, drop his actual meals down a smidge - treats add calories!
