I would like directions on how to make homemade rawhide bones for dogs.
You might want to read this entire article before even deciding you really want to make them:
Thrifty Fun has been around so long that many of our pages have been reset several times. Archives are older versions of the page and the comments that were provided then.
Has anyone tried to make their own rawhide bones for their dogs? We get them on occasion for rainy days, and for when we want to make sure they are occupied while we are busy. They are so expensive and our short-hairs chew them up in no time at all. When we are outside we do get them cow knees and such that last a lot longer, but I don't want them in my house! We would probably make them once a year from deer hide, or possibly try to get some hide from a locker near by. Any suggestions would be good.

Just slice up raw sweet potatoes in thick strips. Dry them in a dehydrator if you have one. If not, put them on a cookie sheet in your oven at 200 degrees overnight. Dogs love the taste of sweet potatoes and they are great for their digestion. (06/18/2009)
