I just made the sardine & parsley treats. I'm mixing them up and they are so dry I can't get them to form balls for anything, they just kept crumbling, so I added the water from the sardine can. Still crumbly I added a little bit of water, mixed, added a little more until I could finally mix it together with my hands.

I made the pumpkin and the sweet potato treats and had the same problem. Too dry. Added more wet stuff and finally got them mixed. They both turned out pretty chewy and my dog had a hard time eating them.
