Dehydrator dogs treats are a big deal here at Casa de Kolchak.
We always want to be giving our dogs the very best food and treats that we can. The trouble is that shopping for treats can be so very confusing. There’s so many different kinds and it seems like 3/4 of them are filled with things I can’t even pronounce. What exactly is Dicalcium Phosphate and how do we know that it’s “wholesome” like they claim it is? Should soft treats really last up to a year? How is that even possible? What chemical makes that even happen? YUCK.
I decided a long time ago that I would rather make as many treats as I can at home, so I know exactly what goes into them.
My dehydrator is a huge part of making my treats a success and a hit with my dogs. Why buy dangerous Chinese jerky treats when you can make chicken jerky treats them at home? Why even limit yourself to chicken? We use our dehydrator to make turkey jerky, salmon snacks, spinach snacks, pork rolls and more. You can make tasty jerky for your pet in whatever meat they like best. That’s not all, my dehydrator lets me preserve things like fresh baked cookies, making them crisp and crunchy, plus extending their shelf life, so I don’t have to bake as often. Jack pot right?
We love dehydrator dog treats and we want you to love them too.
That’s why we’ve teamed up with Silvie on 4 and Excalibur to give away a pretty skookum dehydrator.
You could win an Excalibur 9 Tray Dehydrator
Excaliburs are kind of like the luxury car of dehydrators.
They’re manufactured in the USA. They’ve got tons of size options, so no matter whether you’re drying treats for just your own dog or all the dogs on the block, there is a dehydrator for you. Unlike many dehydrators, Excalibur Dehydrators have a horizontal airflow, not a vertical one. This means that the trays don’t need to be rotated and you get a more evenly dried treat. Their special Hyperwave technology ensures that your treats dry safely, drawing moisture away from the surface and ensuring no moisture or bacteria is trapped inside. The fluctuating temperature create a drying process unlike any other.
