Easiest Homemade Dog Food Recipe

Why make dog food at home when you can just buy it at the store?”

​The #1 reason is simply this: ​Control. You have full control over every single ingredient with no surprises. Dog’s with allergies, sensitivities, or intolerance can live a happy life and you can live worry free.

The second reason is money savings! ​When it comes to healthy dog food the top brands are quite expensive, but you can simply use the same ingredients at home and save an absolute ton.

​Of course, the next biggest concern is time investment. But surprisingly this isn’t as bad as it looks, and with just an hour or less per week you can make enough food to last for several days. We recommend you make use of a some big ziplock bags or containers and freeze what you’re not immediately using.

​Each recipe allows for customization based on your dog’s individual nutritional requirements and tastes. But, before you get started you must speak with a Vet to see what your dog should and should not eat, as each dog’s diet will vary.

​Finally, always check to see what dog’s can and cannot eat​ before adding ingredients.

Here is a simple recipe to get you started.  If you don’t have a Slow Cooker, than get one or use a pot on the stove on low. Cooked dog food is healthier because of human quality ingredients and it’s freezer friendly! Buon Appetito!!
