Turkey Jerky for Dogs

Instead of buying dog treats at the store, try this recipe for irresistible Turkey Jerky that will have your dogs worshiping the ground you walk 🙂 Jerky crammed with turkey, carrots and even parsley for stinky breath without any of the bad stuff that comes in many processed dog treats/foods. As always, this recipe is wheat-free and very healthy but you should always check with your veterinarian before feeding your dog homemade since every pup is different!

  1. I am really drooling over this one. It looks yummy.

  2. Looks yummy. I admire people who make their own treats. I never find the time.

  3. nom, nom, nom… we think these would be great!!!!

    Lots of Collie Hugs,

  4. The pups really love these! Of course, they are suckers for any treats we make with meat 🙂 These take some extra time but are well worth the effort!!!

  5. Love the recipe. Very easy. I cook for my dogs and friends dogs and they all love these. I added shredded cheddar cheese and bacon pieces. Used bread crumbs and no parsley or carrots. At the end of the baking, I put the jerky under the broiler to brown them. Will try this recipe with canned salmon, beef and chicken.
