Dogs are kings, and dogs are supreme snackers! Dogs are also masters at chewing on anything they can get their jaws around. So much so that even the most well-mannered pets have bite habits you’d rather not have neighbors know about. The good news is that there are many easy ways to make homemade dog treats without giving them something unhealthy. In this article, you will learn how to make sweet potato dog treats the easy way, which requires almost no cooking or ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.
What Are Sweet Potato Dog Treats?
Sweet potato dog treats are ideal for all pets, including diabetic and on-the-go dogs. They come in all forms and ingredients, but the base elements are natural sweet potato and hemp seed, seasoned with cinnamon and sugar. The best part is that they don’t contain any calories, fats, sodium, or preservatives that could harm your dog. They are also reasonably priced and easy to make.
How to Make Sweet Potato Dog Treats?
First, you’ll need to choose the perfect ingredients for your treat. While most dogs love sweet potatoes, they are not a favorite treat for everyone. Some breeds are more suited to certain types of food, so you’ll want to select your dog’s ideal snack according to dog preferences. Once you’ve chosen your ingredients, you’ll need to combine them in a food processor or blender to make a fine paste.
You’ll then need to add water, a tablespoon at a time until the mixture is the consistency of a paste. This is what you’ll bake your treats in. You can choose to bake your sweet potato dog treats in the dehydrator, under the broiler, or in the oven. Although you’ll likely bake your treats in the oven, you can also serve them warm out of the dehydrator or under the broiler. Once your treats have baked, they’re ready to be consumed.
Drying Out Dogs with Sweets
If your pup is an especially hard drug addict, you may want to consider drying out his/her treat habit with homemade dog treats. This may sound like a drastic move, but dog treats are highly addictive, and indulging in them can be enjoyable for you and your canine friend. There are many ways to dry out treats.
You can put them in a sealed bag or bowl of warm or hot air and dry them for hours or even days. You can also put them in the oven or dehydrator and dry them out. To make your dog’s treats harder, add a small amount of sugar or stevia to make them more appealing to your pet. You can also coat your dog’s treats in sugar or give your pet Sugarcubes to encourage him/her to eat them.
