Healthy Homemade Dehyrated Dog Treats/Snacks
After reading about the chicken.turkey and beef jerky treats that come from China for your dogs - not being so good for them, over time, I decided to dehydrate my own.
Here's a chicken and beef treat - believe me you will save money and you will know what your doggies are eating!
- chicken or turkey strips (breast meat) sliced very thin and long.
- sweet potato - julianne cut
- optional: garlic powder
1/2 lb. might be enough for one Potato.
Freeze about 30 minutes - they will be easier to slice.
Slice them length-wise into thin strips - so you can wrap them around the potato strips
Cut lengh-wise into thin strips (julianne cut, like for thin fries)
(Depending on how many you want to make - use two or three potatoes and more meat strips.)
OPTIONAL: sprinkle with garlic powder for flea preventative, if your dog likes garlic.
Fill up your dehydrater - OR - place on cookie sheet in your oven at about 150-190 deg.
test after 6 hours to be sure they have no moisture in them.
I usually keep mine frozen, and take a few out for the dogs for the week. I give them one in the afternoon as a snack before their night feeding.
