A simple and quick to make dehydrated pup treat with sweet potatoes.


  • 14 sweet potatoes


  1. Scrub sweet potatoes with a potato brush, and rinse them with a light vinegar rinse. Then rinse again with clean water.
  2. Using a large, sharp, knife, slice into lengthwise strips, about 1.5″ to 2″ in width while raw, they will shrink by about half in the drying process.
  3. For Oven: Lay out on a parchment lined baking sheet, pieces can be touching but should not be overlapping. Heat your oven to 250F and bake the trays in the oven for 4 hours, flipping the treats at the two hour mark. These sweet potato dog chews should still have a bit of flex to them to keep them chewy for your dog. If they are crisp, you can make them chewy by soaking in pet-safe broth for 5 minutes.
  4. For dehydrator: Lay out on your dehydrator trays, pieces can be touching. Dehydrate at 135F for 6-7 hours, or until desired chew level is reached. You don’t want to over-dry. Again, if they do get too crisp, you can hydrate them a bit to restore the chew vs. crunch factor with a pet-safe broth.
  5. Remove from trays and place in a bowl. Chews should be semi crisp, but not mushy or cold feeling. Once you’ve checked the pieces to make sure they’re dry, bag them in an airtight container for storage.
