How to make Tuna treats

One of Woody & Wilma’s absolute favourite training treats is Tuna cake, otherwise known as Tuna loaf or Mackerel cake [With Mackerel instead of Tuna]. It’s quick and easy to make a whole load of treats that will last you and your dogs for plenty of training sessions.


  • 2 tins of Tuna in oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 160g of Flour [I used wholemeal so it was slightly healthier for the dogs]



This recipe is so straight forward [Which is why I love making it for the dogs] you just have to mix all the ingredients together.

  1. Measure out the Flour into your bowl.


2. Crack your two eggs into the same bowl.


3. Add both tins of Tuna & mix everything together to form a thick paste-like consistency. If the mixture is slightly too sticky just add a bit more flour & mix it in.


4. Spread it out on a large plate [I must admit it does look a bit gross at this point] and place it in the microwave for 4 minutes, turn it over & cook for another minute.


5. Chop it up into bite sized pieces. This will probably last us 5 or 6 training sessions. I split it up and freeze each portion until we need them.

This is only half of it chopped up

You can also add a crushed clove of garlic as a little extra if you’d like. What are your favourite homemade treats to make for your dogs? We’d love to hear!

    I have made these treats for many many years, but never baked them in the microwave oven… I have to test that. When I have dogs that need blood flour (dried ox blood) I put that stuff in the breast in stead of flour, and that just adds to the healthiness of the treat, and the dogs go even crazier for them… I have now had Rottweilers, Bulldogs (british) and lately a pug puppy.. and they have all loved them.. They are perfect for training, even for competition use, since the dogs just follow that fishy smell.. I love that they don’t crumble in my pocket (but I never use real flour, mostly potato flour, that gives the least crumbly)
