Product Description

As you sit at the dinner table night after night, your dog watches. He’s thinking that piece of chicken looks mighty good, or maybe the lamb chop is just what he’s been dreaming about when he twitches and moans. But you, you’re a traditionalist. You don’t believe in feeding your dog any food from the table, at any time.

Your brother, on the other hand, is a "dog chef", concocting stews and rice mixes that would make any dog happy. He puts in whatever he thinks the dog might prefer and places it down for the dog night after night, proud of his ability to make "homemade" dog food for his dog. Who’s right? Are either one of you wrong to feed your dog the way you do, or absolutely on the right track? You’re both doing just fine, really. How you feed your dog is a largely personal decision, based on how you have always done things, your budget, your time constraints, and your own dietary restrictions and beliefs.

But it’s never a bad idea to educate yourself about the best kinds of foods for your dog in all categories – those that include homemade foods and those that include commercial food. The great dog food scare of early 2007 shone a light on current dog feeding practices. Those people who generally buy the cheapest dog food had to look closer at their choices, and maybe consider their willingness to buy a higher-quality dog food (and pay for it). Many others, meanwhile, decided to make their dog’s food themselves, looking for recipes and tips for homemade versions for their dog’s favourite tastes and treats. Let’s look at some facts. For example, did you know that prior to the dog food recall in 2007, only about 10-20% of dog owners made their dog’s food? After the recall, the numbers went up considerably, though hard and fast numbers are difficult to pin down. If people didn’t begin making their dog’s food, they turned to specialty stores to make it for them. Since many of the dog items that were recalled were treats, many people began heading to dog bakeries for their dog’s treats. Some estimates were that sales at said dog bakeries increased about 50% after the dog food recall.

Many people, however, are content to continue feeding their dogs commercial dog food, dry and canned. The trick, experts say, is to know how to buy that dog food and to purchase high-quality dog food that is less likely to be contaminated or dangerous in any way for your dog ...
