Easy Sweet Potato Treats for Your Dog

We all want to give our pets what’s best for them, but we often fall short because our pets beg for treats and we give in. This week, one of our readers, Emily (Yoga Dogs) , did some of her own research and development to come up with an easy, delicious treat for her dogs. Her recipe for Easy Sweet Potato Treats couldn’t be simpler! 

So sorry, Grace no more human crisps it is time to make our own crisps that you can eat.

“After finding out that one of biggest health issues for dogs is obesity and that giving human treats is the biggest contributor to this, I have challenged myself to make healthy treats for Grace and Dinky Daisy, my two dogs. My dogs love food…if they could, they would eat me out of house and home – and the honest truth is that I have often given into their pleading eyes and given them treats off my dinner plate.

These are so bad for them, I know that now – so time to make some treats I can give them that are good for them. We are going to make sweet potato crisps … the easiest healthy dog treat recipe ever!

So off to the shops to buy the sweet potatoes … “come on Grace out of the driving seat!”

Back home, we start to make our healthy dog treats…

It is such an easy recipe; all you need is:

  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Baking tray
  • Oven

Peel your sweet potatoes and give a quick wash. Next, cut them into ½ inch wedges and make them look like crisps (or chips, if you’re in the U.S.!) Easy, right?

Lay potato crisps on a baking tray and put into the oven on a really low heat for 3 to 4 hours. Take out and let cool before serving.

This is the finished product and I promise you, your dogs will love them – mine do!”

    I can attest to how yummy these treats are – my “old man,” Soldier, scarfed them down. We’re trying to get him to lose some of his excess weight so that he isn’t stressing his joints, but it can be difficult when they are old and don’t want to exercise as much. These were naturally sweet and easy to make.
