Sweet PAWtato Chews
If you want to know how rawhides are made, Google it. Just don't try that after you have had dinner, but suffice it to say that using lime, bleach and hydrogen peroxide is the nicer part of the process.
Sweet potatoes, on the other hand, are a low fat treat and packed with plenty of Vitamin A, C, Iron, B6, Beta Carotene and Antioxidants. It made sense to us to start making chews with the good stuff and not things we would use to do our laundry. That’s when the idea for Sweet PAWtatos was born.
Our Sweet PAWtato Chews start and end with 100% Sweet potatoes. No coloring, no additives, no preservatives. They are homemade, hand-prepped, peeled (potato skins are bad for dogs*) and dried to produce a chew that is not only better for your pup, but really tasty.
ALL POTATO PRODUCTS MUST BE PEELED!
Why do we take the time to peel our Sweet PAWtato Chews when other don't? Regular potato skins contain soline - which is really dangerous for your dog. Sweet potatoes are from another family of plant entirely but both regular and sweet potatoes contain oxalates. Oxalates are naturally occurring compounds that are very bad for your dogs digestive health causing problems like kidney and bladder stones, urinary tract issues and even nervous system problems. You can greatly reduce the oxalates in the treat by pealing or boiling the potato and throwing away the water. However, boiling will draw our much of the good stuff you want - so we choose to take the time to peal ours.

As we recently got a new yellow lab puppy, there had to be a war between this one and the older dog for the long rawhide bones and chew toys. Looking into the process, you can see there is a lot of bleaching and chemicals added to get the "rawhide" the way it is. I suppose they are just dogs, but then at the same time my wife is buying fancy dog food to meet all of their nutritional requirements, so why not their snack food as well. This is where Idle Paws Sweet Pawtato Chewies come in. The homade natural canine cookies are made from one ingredient: Sweet Potato's. Their packaging is not a list of long, hard to pronounce words, but instead information on content in regards to protein, fat, fiber and moisture. I was in contact with Jim McMahon who plays a role in running IdlePaws and he said : "they have no chemicals at all. Only vitamins and anti-oxidant. Truth is, I eat them myself" Now as you can see in the video, the dogs seemed to like them for sure, and I think they smelled somewhat pleasant, though I did not venture into eating them myself at this point. You can get these fine treats in some local Central NY stores, such as the Green Planet Grocery across from Fairmount Fair (which is where we picked our up) or you can order from the website at http://IdlePaws.com. Both the store and the company, as well as myself, can all be found as part of the Camillus Chamber of commerce at http://CamillusChamber.com. Whether you are in the Camillus, NY area any other town, what I would like to stress the most is your need to support local business. When businesses in your area do better, they give back more and the community prospers. When you do not support the businesses, they leave and the town seems dismal. When you shop at a local store that carries a product like this you also get to save some money as you can often get a break on the shipping. If the store is running a promo of some sorts, you might also get a handy discount on your purchase. So go check out http://IdlePaws.com now and get your furry little friends a treat. Or, you could always pick up the treats for yourself as well.

My shih Tzu loves these sweet potato chews! Great healthy alternative to get her to chew. I like to alternate giving her these & dental sticks to clean her teeth and keep her occupied for a little bit. She tends to choke on some of the rawhide chews, which scares me, but these have never been a problem. I'm so glad we found them! :-)
Never turns them down !
