Super simple sweet potato dog chew recipe

Super simple sweet potato dog chew recipe

by Jenny Ostoj April 30, 2020

These days, many people are finding themselves baking and cooking more at home. I’ve personally spent a lot more time in the kitchen, which also means I've enjoyed way more than my fair share of homemade brownies, cookies, and scones. To the point that my waistband has officially called for a time out. ⁠;-)

So I’ve started seeking out recipes and treats to make for the pups instead. One of our current favorites is SUPER easy and only takes one ingredient: A sweet potato or yam!

Our pups love sweet potatoes, and I had been purchasing packaged chews at the pet store. They are great because they have a long shelf life and aren't perishable like the homemade version, but I have found that it is way more cost-effective to make these at home and save our budget for the fancier treats that we can't DIY.

This little guy LOVES his sweet potato treats.

Dried sweet potato chew recipe



It's so simple! Just one yam or sweet potato.


  • Preheat oven to 250°F.
  • Wash the sweet potato or yam.
  • Cut either down the middle lengthwise, then cut long lengthwise slices about 1/3 of an inch wide, or slice them (as pictured) 
  • Place on a cookie sheet in a single layer.
  • Bake in oven at 250 F for 3-4 hours
  • The thickness of the cut and the length you leave them in the oven will impact the chewiness. Sometimes we bake them longer for a crunchy snack. Our pups enjoy them both ways!
  • Cool before serving to your pup and store the remainder in the refrigerator.

Product Spotlight: Commuter Backpack

by Jenny Ostoj May 21, 2020

I am so excited to officially announce that the Commuter Backpack is now available! 

This ridiculously cute dog backpack has launched in four color options -- navy blue, hunter green, burgundy red, and chocolate brown -- with coordinating plaid interior.

It might be helpful to understand a bit about my background to see how the pieces lined up for this product to come to life.

Several years ago I started to make bags and accessories (for humans) that fit needs for travel, work, and life under the brand name Jo Rose Design. Organically this evolved into prototyping stylish yet functional products I desired as a dog owner.

Keeping your active dog busy while you work

by Jenny Ostoj April 13, 2020

As the weeks go by and quarantine stretches on, we are all working to adjust to the "new normal" and what it means to be at home all of the time. For many of us, this is the first time we've had to work exclusively from home, and it takes time to adjust!

So we thought we’d share a bit of insight into how we’re structuring our days and keeping our two young active labradoodles busy.
