Katja watched our Sweet Potato Dog Treat Recipe video and made these great looking dog treats!
In an email, she says:
I made your Sweet Potato dog biscuit recipe today. My slightly picky Labrador pup –I know a contradiction in terms- loves them.
Really liked the dogbone cookiecutter you used and looked online for one. I didn’t find a large one but it will do fine for a small treat.
They also had a couple of dog breed cookiecutters and I got the Labrador one.
It’s kinda fussy with the sticky sweet potato dough but they came out ok.
I know some Labradors that are picky about their dog treats - Henry wont eat carrots, and of course, Charlie Pup inhales them.
The dog treat dough for this recipe is kinda sticky, I think the sweet potato makes it that way, its also full of potato strand like stuff, so that adds to it. But with a good cookie cutter, or just a tin can, you can cut out the dog treats.
I really like the Labrador cookie cutter Katja used here. You can find some cookie cutters online here.

Have a dog treat recipe? please share it or your treat ideas below in the comments, thx!
I really enjoy all of your videos and radio shows. Last night, I saw your video on dog treats. I also read a suggestion to use garlic powder and remembered reading that garlic and onions are foods you shouldn't feed dogs. I looked it up this morning and wanted to give you a link that I found informative on this subject. http://www.aspca.org/pet-care/poison-control/people-foods.aspx
Because its from the aspca, I tend to believe it and not dismiss it as the stuff of urban legends. I would love to know your thoughts on this.
I was thinking about experimenting making treats with pumpkin I have in the freezer, or maybe butternut squash, as my girl Molly loves them both.
Thanks for any feedback.
All my best, Sharon
