It’s so easy to turn your leftover turkey into dehydrator dog treats.

Turkey holidays are my favourite holidays. The food. The family. THE LEFTOVERS. Everyone at Casa de Kolchak, human and canine, lives for holiday leftovers. Even though you should be totally cautious if you decide to share a holiday meal with your dog, there are tons of things you can do to turn unseasoned leftovers into delicious dehydrator dog treats.

Determined to see just how many different dog treats could be made from turkey leftovers, I recently roasted an entire turkey, just for Kolchak.

Yeah. Yeah you guys. I know. It was more turkey than I anticipated. A lot more. 

Turkey and turkey leftovers and turkey dog treats for days. I couldn’t even use it all. There are about three ziplocs crammed in my freezer waiting for me to turn them into something great.
