Why make homemade pet treats?

Not only is it way more economical to make a batch of dog treats, but you know exactly what’s going in to them.

Made with no preservatives or additives, these dog treats are mad with just natural and healthy ingredients.

How to store

Once your sweet potato dog treats are fully cooled, place them in an airtight container. They will keep for several weeks at room temperature.

Should you peel the sweet potatoes?

Yes, always remove the skin of the sweet potatoes as these can be difficult for your dig to digest.

You can peel the sweet potatoes and cook them in boiling water until tender, or you can roast them and then peel them. Then you just need to mash them up and mix with the other ingredients.
