    1. He did so good for his first appearance! Of course he will do just about anything for food 🙂 I like the name Coopy Snacks!

  1. My dog has had surgery for bladder stones and is on a strict diet, only allowed to eat Royal Canin SO. Does anyone know if he can have these?

    1. I would check with your vet. Our day g had that surgery twice, and then she went on Royal Canin too. Sadly, we lost her “this date” two years ago!!

  2. So quick, so easy! I know exactly where the treats are coming from, and the most important part…MY DAPHNE LOVES THEM!!! She waiting patiently while they were cooking and proceeded to gobble to chips down as soon as they were cool! Thank you!

  3. I think I cut mine too thick or something because they didn’t turn out very crisp at all. I think I needed to cook them for longer and cut them thinner. I tried freezing them and giving them to my dog frozen, she liked them but only licked them. Definitely going to try again but this time was a bust!

  4. I have bought dried sweet potato’s at high end pet food store before and my Ike just loves them. I will be sure to try making them now. Mr. Ike can be in sweet potato treats for months at the cost of just one bag from the pet food store. Awesome… Tail wags too!

  5. Cooper looks like a sweetheart!

    My Westie LOVES sweet potatoes….in any form…cooked or raw. We grow our own so I make these often, but use my dehydrator instead of my oven.

    1. I’m excited to try and make these today. My fathers dog Jack has just been diagnosed with a tumor in his lung and is now on a strict diet. All natural and no chem filled pre bought treats anymore. I’m hoping that these will be a new favorite for him. Thank you for the recipe!
