Hello! Milly typically loves her Zuke's treats. She also will do anything for an ice cube. I recently purchased a dehydrator and have been testing some different things. I have read through the forums for some tips, but have some questions so I'd love your thoughts!

- It sounds like dogs shouldn't eat too many dried Banana chips, maybe a handful per week. Is this accurate?
- If you boil/blanch your sweet potatoes/yams before drying, do you slice them and then blanch, or blanch and then slice?
- What consistency should the sweet potatoes be in the end? More chip-like or more chewy?
- Any other things you like to dehydrate for treats?

Thanks!

I have not tried to dehydrate bananas, but have done just about everything else. :)

I just slice em thin and dry them. No precooking, etc.

My dogs love their homemade treats.

My latest experiment was with soaking dehdrated mushrooms and squash in beef broth, then dehydrating them again.

My dogs give them a 10! :)
