  • When the dough is ready, roll it to1/4” thick with a non-stick rolling pin.

  • Turn off the oven and let the mini dog bones dry completely in the oven—best overnight. Or, if you have a dehydrator, dry the bones in your dehydrator until they are crisp and hard—about 2-3 hours.

That's all there is to it! It doesn't take a lot of your time, especially if you use a bread machine to make the dough.
