Make Your Own Home Made Organic Baits For Dogs.

The term bait or baiting is synonymous  with fishing, however in the doggy world, bait is used extensively for training dogs. Bait is usually a piece of food, usually biscuits and raw food that dogs like.

In the conformation ring where dogs are professionally shown by handlers, you will find that most of the handlers are using some type of bait to entice the dog in doing what the handler wants the dog to do. 

At Iz Teremka BRT Kennel we try our best to use organic raw food as bait whenever it is necessary and when time permits for our dogs. Now a raw dog food diet typically consists of: muscle meat, often still on the bone. Bones, either whole or ground. Organ meats such as livers and kidneys. The problem we have here is that on most occasions, if we are purchasing from a butcher or grocery, we are not sure if these foods contain any chemicals in the food. We have to take the word of the butcher or meat cutter from the grocery that the food does not contain any chemicals that has passed down the animal chain.

Chicken Hearts Bait 

In preparing our bait,  we purchased baby beef liver (if available), chicken liver (if available), chicken hearts (if available).
Once we make our purchase and take it home, the work starts on how you prepare your bait. The process that I am going to tell you about is the same process that is applied to the baby beef liver, chicken liver and chicken hearts.For the purpose of this writing I am going to use the chicken hearts. Once I get home, I am going to:

  1. Remove the hearts from the grocery packaging and place it in a colander  and thoroughly wash the chicken hearts. After washing let the colander drain for about 15minutes to get all the water out. 
  2. After the water is all drained, place contents in a large bowl to accommodate the hearts.
  3. You are going to take about 3 to 4 garlic bulbs, separate them into cloves and remove the shells. Once all the shells are removed, crush the cloves in a mortar and pestle.  If you do not have a mortar and pestle, use a food processor or blender. Once it is crushed, let it stand for about 10 minutes. Why 10 minutes?, you want the allicin in the garlic to do it’s magic. This is applicable to all foods when garlic is used.
  4. Add to the bowl of hearts about 3 tablespoons of soya sauce, 1 table spoon of Lea and Perrins Worcestershire sauce, 2 tablespoons of Hoisin Sauce, 2 tablespoon of salt and any other marinade that you want to use. I leave that up to your discretion. After the garlic has completed it’s 10 minutes rest, add the garlic to the bowl and mix all the  ingredients together.
  5. Once it is all mixed, put all the ingredient including the “sauce” into a ziplock bag and let stand in the refrigerator overnight.
  6. The next day, get a pot that will hold all the hearts, open the ziplock bag and pour all the contents into the pot. Fill the pot with water that will just cover the hearts, add 1 tablespoon of salt. Bring to a boil and let it simmer for about 1 hour. The smell will be nice. 
  7. After 1 hour, remove and drain in a colander. Let all the water drain. Please do not do what I do. It smells so good that I start to eat the hearts. They taste good. Once the water has drained, spread the hearts out on a paper towel and pat them dry. This is important. It must be dried. If you are using baby liver, this is the time that you will cut up the liver into bait bite sizes. Again here, use your discretion.
  8. Once the hearts are throughly dried, preheat your oven to 375F. You are going to take all the hearts and spread it on to a cookie sheet. Make sure that the hearts do not touch each other. One the oven has reach it’s temperature, place the cookie sheet into the oven and bake for 1 hour. I like my bait to be a little crispy, however some people like their bait to have a little moisture in it. With this said, you should check the bait in the oven to see if it is to your liking.

You may have to do this several times before you get the hang of it in making you very own bait. If you have make batches of bait, you can try freezing them.

Happy Baiting.
