This is an oldie, but it still get’s a lot of traffic and fresh comments weekly. I guarantee your little furry friend will LOVE this Homemade Dog Food recipe!
Please Note: Take a minute to read through the comments, there are some great suggestions, tips, and warnings when it comes to making your own dog food. This is something I’m new to, my dogs are loving it but just know that you’ll likely need to supplement with dry dog food (or add in specific nutrients to the food) for the various needs they may have.
With that said, dog food is a big expense in our household. We have a Border Collie and an Australian Shepherd, while I wouldn’t consider them large dogs they are very active dogs and eat twice a day. Our Australian Shepherd (collie mix) has a very sensitive stomach and we’ve tried many different brands of dog food, some of the specialty ones are upwards of $40 a bag! When I was visiting with my husband’s aunt over the holidays we began chatting about this issue and she said very matter-of-factly “Why aren’t you making your own food for him?” Ummmm….that’s a great question, I have no idea! So I came home eager to try out this recipe and test it on the dogs. It’s a HUGE hit, they both licked their bowls clean. I hope your pups enjoy it too.
