Dog EatingI made the switch from commercial food products to home-cooked meals for my dogs in 2006.  Since that time, I have studied and researched foods, vitamins, herbs and minerals to ensure that my dogs are receiving the best that I can provide for them.  Providing supplementation with home-cooking is essential in guaranteeing that your dogs will not lack in any important vitamins, minerals or nutrients.  I would be happy to discuss your dog’s diet with you and what individualized supplement plan may be needed.

The recipes on the following pages have been taste-tested by a few pups, including my own.  As stated above, each recipe is enhanced with all natural supplements.

Some personal notes:

I always shred the veggies with a grater (or puree in the food processor) to ensure that the dogs eat them and do not pick them out.  I also add the veggies last to ensure that the nutritional value is not being cooked away.  And I choose to store each recipe in the broth created and serve it with the dogs’ meal.  As dogs are true carnivores, my recipes concentrate on more meat protein with some added veggies.  Each recipe can be adjusted more or less depending upon the number of and/or size of your dog(s).
