Category Archives: Dog Treats


This past summer I received an e-mail/press release from a PR firm representing Excalibur dehydrators (I own one and love it) and they were highlighting the fact that their dehydrators could be used to make treats for your pets.  Seeing as we had just lost our beloved pup, I did not have the motivation to make any nor did I have a taste-tester even if I had made any.

Fast forward to the present.  We have now had our Goldendoodle, Dug, since September and after months of trying to find a food that worked for his sensitive tummy, Dug is FINALLY able to partake in some treats.

These vegan raw hide chews were so simple to make and HE LOVES THEM!  All you do is:

  1. Clean some sweet potatoes
  2. Slice the sweet potatoes length-wise 1/4″ thick
  3. Dehydrate the slices until they are hard (it took about 24 hours at 125 degrees)

Now that I know Dug digs these treats, my next batch will be a huge one…his cousin Rufus (my sister’s Newdle/Newfypoo…aka Newfoundland Standard Poodle mix) may even receive a package in the mail!

Do any of you make home made dog treats?
