Dehydrated Sweet Potato Dog Treat Recipe

PetGuide logo

I love me some sweet potatoes! And you know who else loves sweet potatoes – your dog! Not only that, but they also love jerky. This Dehydrated Sweet Potato Dog Treat Recipe combines both tasty treats into one barking-good snack. You’ll need a dehydrator for this one, but they are quite inexpensive (I bought mine for $40). I find that it’s a good investment, and it’ll pay for itself once you stop buying the jerky and make it yourself.


2 sweet potatoes

Meat-flavored dog-safe seasoning (Optional)


  1. Wash and peel sweet potatoes. Slice the sweet potato into ¼-inch slices.
  2. Sprinkle with dog-safe seasoning (optional). I used Crump Natural Liver Sprinkles
  3. Using a dehydrator, use the high setting and place slices on trays.
  4. For chewy treats, leave in dehydrator for 6 to 8 hours. For a crunchier treat, leave in for 10 to 12 hours.
  5. Store in air-tight container or Ziploc bag to preserve freshness.
