Treat your pup with these Grain-Free Sweet Potato Dog Treats made from just 5 wholesome and healthy ingredients. Your dog will love eating them as much as you enjoy spoiling them!Ever since we got Rhett I’ve come to fully understand what it means when they say that your dog becomes a part of your family. My life has come to revolve around this pup to a point where I sometimes wonder if my obsession is inappropriate…and then I meet another dog owner and feel completely at ease!
Dog owners are whole-heartedly infatuated by their fur babies. They say things like “fur babies” for gods sake. And yes, I’ve become one of those people. So it can’t be that surprising that I’m posting about homemade dog treats.
I was a ticking time-bomb.
The only problem with creating a dog-friendly treat recipe for Rhett is that he’s the pickiest eater (kind of like his mother…hi Sab!). Like most dogs he loves meat, but peanut butter isn’t really his jam (punny). He has a weakness for all things dairy but C and I had to live through the aftermath of that only once to ban dairy.
But the other day I was eating sweet potatoes and he kept begging for them. So it turns out the guy likes sweet potatoes! A man after my own heart.
That gave me the idea to develop a recipe for grain-free dog treats using sweet potato, because they’re super nutritious and tasty and helped create the right consistency for treats.
As you can see by the look on his face, he LOVED his treats. If you caught it on Snapchat, he literally launched himself at me when I offered him his first one. He didn’t even attempt to sit for me. I was too thrilled to care.
