How to Make Your Own Dog Jerky: A Step-by-Step Guide

Are you tired of buying expensive, preservative-filled dog treats at the store? Want to give your furry friend a healthy and delicious snack that you can feel good about feeding them? Look no further than homemade dog jerky!

Making your own dog jerky is easier than you may think, and it allows you to control exactly what ingredients go into your pup's treats. Plus, you can choose your own protein source. If you want to skip all of this you can do that with Good Boys Dog Treats. These single ingredient treats are made with high-quality meat and nothing else, making them a perfect choice for homemade jerky.

Here's a step-by-step guide on how to make your own dog jerky at home:

  1. Gather your ingredients. You'll need a pound of chicken or beef, depending on your preference (we recommend Good Boys Dog Treats for the best quality and taste). You'll also need a dehydrator or an oven.

  2. Preheat your dehydrator or oven to the lowest setting (usually around 145-155 degrees).

  3. Cut the meat into thin, even slices. The thinner the slices, the quicker the jerky will dehydrate.

  4. Arrange the slices on the dehydrator tray or a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Leave enough space between the slices to allow for even drying.

  5. Place the tray in the dehydrator or oven and let it dry for 6-8 hours, or until the jerky is completely dry and slightly crispy.

  6. Let the jerky cool completely before storing it in an airtight container. It will keep for up to a month in the pantry or up to 6 months in the freezer.

Making your own dog jerky is a fun and easy way to provide your furry friend with a healthy, single ingredient treat. And with Good Boys Dog Treats, you can be confident that you're using the best quality meat for your homemade jerky. Check out their selection of chicken and beef treats at
