In San Diego, I stumbled across a new trend in dog treats … dehydrated sweet potatoes. I thought they were chicken chews (another trend). When I picked one up, it was thick, heavy, hard like jerky, and wrinkled. The manufacturer told me it was a sweet potato. How cool is this?
Yams are packed with vitamins and minerals, calcium and fiber. They're naturally sweet and great for dogs who want a vegetarian alternative to rawhide. They're also good for dogs with wheat or corn allergies. Sweet potato chews can be kept for six months (longer if you refrigerate them).
I was so impressed with these chews that I decided we should carry them on FunStuffForDogs.com. I've ordered a couple of cases that come in resealable plastic bags. We need to get our crack-shot photographer, Dianne Coburn, to take some fabulous pictures so you can see the texture and color online. We should have them up and ready to buy in a week or so.
I'm very excited about these. Finally, a vegetable alternative to rawhide that dogs love, isn't greasy, doesn't stain the carpet, and provides a good chewing experience. Please tell me how they do with your dog. Write a product review or add your two cents to an existing review. – Lisa Woody
