Take a look at these healthy treats for your pet. A recipe for every dog’s favorite: chicken jerky plus a receipe for dog-friendly Sweet Potato Chews. Dehydrating food is all the rage these days — great for summer’s fruit, berry and vegetable bounty, and for making sumptuous, healthy treats for your dogs (not to mention yourself). While it’s possible to dehydrate food in an oven, it’s much more efficient and convenient to use a dehydrator. And making it in your own home means you don’t have to worry about contaminants or adulterated ingredients.
