Homemade Dog Chews

Dogs like chewy treats that are tasty and give their mouths a workout. You could buy a box of treats at the store, but if you really want to reward your dog with something special make your own dog chews. If you make them yourself you know the ingredients are wholesome and good for your dog.

  1. Sweet Potato Dog Chew

    • Wash a sweet potato and cut it into slices, around 1/3 inch wide. Bake them in an oven at 250 degrees for three hours. Take them out, allow them to cool and then give them to your dog. They will be chewy and will keep your dog entertained. Plus they are better for your dog than rawhide chews because sweet potato is a lot easier to digest.

    Frozen Chicken Cubes

    • Make frozen chicken cubes to help your dog cool down in hot weather. All you need to do is make some low-sodium chicken stock, add a sliced-up piece of meat such as liver or chicken and then freeze the mixture overnight in an ice cube tray.

    Beef Cookies

    • It may not sound good to you, but your dog will go crazy for beef cookies. Take a 6-ounce jar of beef and vegetable baby food, 1 cup of wheat germ and 1 cup of nonfat dry milk. Mix and divide the mixture into biscuit-size portions. Bake in an oven set to 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 12-15 minutes. Wait until the cookies are cool before giving one to your dog.

    Potato Balls

    • To make homemade potato balls with carrots, preheat an oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine 1 cup of mashed potatoes with one shredded carrot. Form the potato mixture into about 12 miniature balls and bake for 10-15 minutes.
