So I have been thinking more about how I can keep Molly on track with her weight reduction yet still give her treats when we are out and about and training. I love the green beans idea, but I don’t want to travel with soggy green beans in my pocket
So I was thinking of using my hubby’s handy dehydrator on some fresh carrots. Has anyone tried this? Are there any other veggies I can try out?
Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

Do you mind carrying cut up baby carrots? I don’t think you would have to dehydrate them and they are easy to carry. I carry those for myself! 🙂
Shelby only liked her baby carrots if they were pre-cut for her but if Molly likes carrots, that might a good one. Or cucumbers. Shelby loved cucumbers too!

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife
You absolutely can do that! I know you can buy them as well, but home made is so much better. If you decide to do it, let us know, we’d love to share it in the Tripawds Nutrition blog . Great idea!
I’d love to see how this goes too! I’ve been on the fence about buying a dehydrator now for a few months. I dried some banana chips in the oven and everyone (including Tanner) went gaga for them.

Here’s another great use of a dehydrator: Homemade chicken jerky treats!
