Sweet Potato Dog Treats
Description: Homemade dog biscuits are ideal if you'd like to have better control over the ingredients your dog consumes -- or if you just want to give your best friend something special! These dog treats aren't hard and crunchy, they're more like cookies in texture. You can keep them in an airtight container for up to 3 days. To store them longer, put them in a zipper lock bag in the freezer. If you like, use 1 1/2 cups mashed cooked sweet potato or pumpkin in place of the canned.
