One of my favorite things about fall are sweet potatoes. Yep, that's right!

Read on to learn more about them, and how to make one of my favorite treats - Homemade Sweet Potato Chews!
They are good for you!
Sweet potato chews are a great alternative to the ever present rawhide chews, which contrary to pupular belief, really aren't good for dogs.
They present a choking hazard, and they don't digest very easily and could become lodged in the intestines creating a dangerous health hazard. In addition, many rawhides are processed with chemicals which aren't good for dogs either.
So what's a dog to do? Make some yummy sweet potato chews!

How to make Sweet Potato Chews for Dogs!
Mum wanted to make some for me and Gracie the other day, so we gave it a try! You can too...let's get started!
Wash a sweet potato (organic is best and we like to peel them). Cut down the middle lengthwise. Then cut long lengthwise slices about 1/3 of an inch wide and place them in a single layer on a cookie sheet (use a stainless steel sheet, for healthier cooking).
Put in the oven at 250 degrees for about 3 hours. This leaves them kind of chewy, but you could also bake them a little longer to get them crunchy.
Oh, and you can waffle cut them for more fun...Enjoy!
Are they done yet? Are they done yet? - sniff, sniff...
