I've been making dehydrated sweet potato dog treats for my pooches for a long time.
With there being so many issues with store bought dog treats containing unhealthy levels of antibiotics or salmonella poisoning, I would seriously encourage you to begin making your own dog treats.
Then you know what your dog is eating for sure!
AND Sweet Potatoes are an excellence source of c, b-complex, iron, and phosphorus, which all are great for your dogs immune system along with other benefits.

Quick Trick for easy slicing: Put the washed sweet potato in the microwave for a couple of minutes to soften it just a bit. This will make it easier to slice. Otherwise trying to cut that darn hard potato could result in slicing other things like your fingers or hands. Really I'm serious! They are stinking hard! AND roll!
Voila' Your Finished Dehydrated Sweet Potato Dog Treats
Prepare your sweet potatoes the same as above and load into a dehydrator, leaving space in between slices to make cooking even. Set your machine as directed in your book.
I typically dehydrate my
sweet potato dog treats approximately 10-12 hours. I like to have them a
bit soft when done because they will harden once cooled and
refrigerated. You may need to test a batch or two until you get the
texture where you and your puppy dog like them.
Let slices cool on dehydrator racks and then place into a zip lock and keep in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks.
either cooking methods, the color that your dehydrated sweet potato dog
treats turn out will vary. The cold blanching always keep ours a nice color.
Don't worry if they don't look like the picture on this page. Your dogs won't care, they just wanna eat those Sweet Potato Dog Treats!
