Bake the chicken or pan fry with garlic powder, pepper and salt. Make the rice. Steam the veggies and mix the veggies with the rice. You could add some seasoning like sauteed onions and garlic to this for added flavor.
there are a lot of cheap, cute cookie cutters on ebay. i bought a dog bone-shaped one for 99 cents. as far as a recipe, i usually kind of make up my own. for homemade christmas treats you can use half white/half whole wheat flour (don't want too much fiber), unsweetened applesauce or plain yogurt, egg, parsley (it's green for xmas and gives good breath). i wouldn't add any food coloring. for a candy cane cookie you could stripe it with parsley and slices of red radish
I wash the sweet potatoes first then dry them off very well, depending on how thick you cut them will determined either how crisp or how chewy they will come out. I do not put anything on my potatoes at all. I slice mine about 1/8 of a inch thick and then dehydrate them for the dogs. I than keep them in a zip lock bad in the fridge.
The thicker you slice them the more chewy they are. It takes mine about 12 to 14 hours to get to the point where my dogs like them.
You'll have to just test times to see where you want them for your dog.
when my puppy was teething I would stop up one end with just a dab of peanut butter, fill the rest with water and freeze it. He LOVED it. You could let them play with it outside, but really I diddnt find it too messy even for the house. The ice melts at about the rate the dog licks at it, and the little dribbles are easy enough just to mop up after. I have also put in chunks of apple (no core or seeds) or baby carrots. I also have added peanut butter from time to time. I just throw it in the dishwasher afterwards to clean it. Kong makes treats to go inside as well.
