Sweet Potato treats for dogs All you need are 3 medium sweet potatoes and either an oven or dehydrator. I used the dehydrator, but am sure the oven method would turn out just as good. Wash and dry sweet potatoes. Cut each sweet potato into 1/4 inch slices length-wise. A mandolin would be great for this, but I don’t have one. A sharp knife worked fine for this. No lemon juice is needed for these chews, dogs don’t like citrus or care if they turn brown. Dehydrator method: Place sweet potato slices on dehydrator trays, making sure they are not touching. Dry the potatoes for at least 14 hours. I did not get up in the middle of the night to turn my machine off, and they came out just fine after 18 hours. Cool on wire rack. Oven method: Place prepared sweet potato slices on parchment lined cookie sheets. Heat in 250 degree oven for between 3 to 4 hours, turning half way through. Cool on wire rack.
