Dehydrated Orange Peel Good for Dogs to Chew On?

I have a dehydrator and dehydrate a lot of foods for my dogs. I was wondering if dehydrated orange peels with just the peel would be safe for them to chew on.

I would wash the oranges real good to remove any pesticides that been sprays on them . Have you asked your vet if was to give orange peels to your dogs? They may know if it is safe.

Hmm - I've never heard of that. Normally orange peels are bitter...but dogs will eat anything

Seems it's okay based on this older thread.
Hope it may help!

My dog will eat raw orange peels. I can't see raw or dehydrated providing much chewing, unless it's a tiny dog. With my boy it's just gulp, gone. He only eats few bits but if he wanted the whole thing I wouldn't let him.
