Full Answer

Bake whole sweet potatoes in an oven or a microwave before serving for canine consumption. Alternatively, slice the sweet potatoes thinly, spread in a single layer on a cookie sheet and bake for about three hours in an oven preheated to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. The longer the sweet potatoes bake, the crunchier they become. The slices can also be placed in a dehydrator for similar results. Sweet potatoes provide an all natural, healthy and cost-effective treat for dogs.
