Sweet Potato Dog Treats

Zuzu loves Beggin’ Strips.  She goes nuts for them, which wouldn’t be a problem if they didn’t cost so much. Luckily, there is a much more affordable alternative that Zuzu loves almost as much–sweet potato treats.  They are easy to make and are very cost effective.

To make these treats, all you need is a few sweet potatoes.

Wash the sweet potatoes and then cut them into thin strips.   If your slices are on the thicker side, that is not a problem.  You will just need to bake them for a slightly longer time.

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Then place the sweet potato strips on a cookie sheet, and put them in the oven.  Bake them for about 3 hours or until they are crispy.

After they cool, let your dog test them out.  Zuzu is a big fan.  When we leave the house, I’ll usually put a few strips in a plastic water bottle and give it to her. This keeps her entertained for hours, as she tries to get the treats out.

Another added perk, is that you can eat the sweet potato strips too.  They taste great, and are a healthy alternative to chips.
