After yesterday’s post where I shared the sweet potato chew recipe, I was asked by a number of you whether or not the dogs liked them. Can I just say they were quite keen on them? However, had I know that a certain little Ninja would have happily noshed away at the raw version after she broke into the panty and snagged a raw one, I might have avoided a certain injury.
Ok, I’ll admit her tongue is only partially out. I’ve heard of going ‘raw’ but seriously? Come on, Elsa!!
Live, love, bark! ❤︎

haha all that work and she likes the raw one. Mine will chew on raw regular potatos
Ironic indeed but the chews are super easy to make so all good.
I actually like raw white potatoes myself. I know, I’m, shall I say, “different.” LOL Tippy likes raw white potatoes too. I haven’t tried to see if she likes raw sweet potatoes or not. She seems to like all things orange – sweet potatoes, carrots, and pumpkin.
I do too so I don’t think that’s so different. The best part of sweet potatoes is their nutritional value which is far superior to white potatoes and they aren’t glycemic either. Dogs (like their peeps) don’t ‘need’ the sugar! 😉
Raw sweet potato?? Yuck! It’s amazing what some dogs will eat, isn’t it?!
They’re actually not half bad. Certainly no worse than raw white potatoes.
Nugget loves Sweet Potato chews the ones we use to buy for her were a bit too big and she would start to choke on them, so I make them for her now in the dehydrator and make them much smaller. A great healthy treat for sure! Nugget would push a raw one around to play with but she never decided to try to eat it raw lol
Elsa sure blew me away eating the raw one and when I offered a piece to Sam, he even ate it like his sister. These two crazy pups tickle me. 🙂
Remember “Mr. Potato Head”? Meet Ms. Potato Breath”.
It could be worse. 😉
A raw sweet potato does not sound too tasty but are probably great for their teeth. LOL!
Actually, I was surprised. It’s definitely not horrible. Think of it as an orange potato. 😉
Our Angel Greta loved dried sweet potato treats!
Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel
Elsa and Sam sure went crazy for it. Both way…dried or raw! #crazydogs
she was trying to save you work… “here let me cook Mom, oh who cares it’s good this way too! “
Ah…that’s it. Chef Elsa…the latest guest on Top Chef; her claim to fame…makes a mean veggie dish in the blink of an eye.
I made ours yesterday and as I had written I think on Facebook, I cut mine in thin discs since Dakota is smaller than your babies…..mine are more bite-sized but OMG HE LOVES THEM!!!!!!! Thanks again!
Woo-hoo. You don’t know how happy that makes me. So glad but not surprised. Happy Pi Day!
More pictures of Elsa please 🙂 I love seeing her!
Aw, thanks. You know those Ninjas…pretty elusive. LOL
Raw sweet potatoes? No thanks! That is funny. My dog will eat most vegetables, but only if they’re cooked.
No worse than a raw white potato and actually far more flavorful. Proving one again that dogs will eat anything. 🙂
I love Sam and all that but if these treats have the “Ninja Seal of Approval” I will be making them on Thursday..
She has gone ga-ga over them. Even added some sweet potato on top of their breakfast. It was practically inhaled by both of them!
Yup, made them today and Benji likes them – the WaWa loves them..
Hurrah! Glad you were able to please the peanut gallery and hopefully your experience was accident free. 😉
oh if Elsa likes them, I will like them too… butt the mama has some doubts… Easy disliked them and he also said no thanks to peanut butter the mama organized from a store 25 kilometers away ;o)))
Wait what? A dog that didn’t like peanut butter? Im-pawsible!
