Mmmm Sweet Potato……

A question we get asked a lot is what are Outback Snacks? We understand it’s hard shopping online for new products and not knowing exactly what you are getting. We felt we would put an article together to really explain exactly what they are and what dogs they are suitable for. Watch the video first to get a brief understanding and then we will provide a detailed description below.

Our process to make them is actually pretty simple. The challenging part is getting the timing perfect every time. We get all our Sweet Potato from Queensland, Australia. Once into our facility it gets chopped and put into large vats. It’s in here where we add all our beef juices to mix with the sweet potato and absorb. This is critical part number 1. It takes a specific amount of time for this process to happen. We find that dogs are mainly interested in this product when they can taste the beef all the way through the Outback Snack.

The second critical part is the drying time. We lay the sweet potatoes out in trays for drying. This part is crucial because we need to make sure we dry long enough so that each piece is crunchy and the beef has dried all the way through. Our natural process of using gas heating and fans in man-made large drying rooms really gives the product a slow dry to retain maximum nutrition without damaging the product. It’s why dogs love our treats!

Once finished this product ends up very crunchy with a nice golden glow to it. Dogs that are fussy, limited teeth or don’t like vegetables will most likely not like this dog treat. On the other hand if you have a dog that loves a harder, crunchier dog snack then this could be a great alternative treat that is lower in protein and richness to balance the diet through other daily food intake and 100% meat sourced dog treats.

The dogs we have found really love this treat are Siberian Husky, Labrador, Staffy’s, Ridgebacks, Aussie Shepards, Golden Retrievers and most larger breeds due to the hardness of them.
