Since we might as well be walking on the sun here at Casa de Kolchak, baking dog treats is out of the question.
It’s too darn hot. Most of our time is spent on the deck, sitting still and trying not to overheat. The idea of turning on the oven and raising the temperature in here is laughable. Luckily making dog treats in the dehydrator is a great way to make your dog a homemade chew that they will love, plus it’s SUPER easy.
Even if you don’t have a counter top dehydrator, you can dehydrate fish chews in the oven at a super low temperature and they’ll still turn out great.
I’m pretty sure my dogs would eat pieces of dehydrated white fish no matter WHAT I flavour it like, but I like to marinate the fish in a tasty concoction, just to kick the flavour up a notch and make my treats a little fancy. Wrap up a handful of these healthy, homemade dog treats in a cellophane bag or in a jar and you’ve got a really nice gift for dog loving friends and neighbours that makes it look like your slaved over gourmet treats, when in reality these take 5 minutes to prep, then you can forget about them until they’re done.
