From Rick Woodford, the "Dog Food Dude" himself, comes Feed Your Best Friend Better, with easy recipes that will make even humans drool a little bit. Natural food can enable dogs to live longer, healthier lives, just as it can for humans, and with these meals, treats, and cookies, dogs will never miss commercial kibble.
Rick has researched nutrition for dogs and has used the same manuals veterinarians use to develop his recipes. Feed Your Best Friend Better makes the transition to homemade dog food simple, so you can make natural food for your dog every day. From nutritional value to portion sizes, these recipes will help owners know what their dog is eating. The meals are healthy, and dogs love them.
Rick Woodford wants dogs in every family to be healthy and happy. His recipes use a variety of herbs and spices for their antioxidant properties but they smell so good everybody in the house will be drooling. Recipes include:
- Puppy Pesto
- Bacon Yappetizers
- Mutt Loaf
- Gingerbread Mailman
In addition to 85 recipes other helpful chapters include:
- How to Pick out a Commercial Food; making the ingredient label easy to understand with a breakdown of ingredients that are good for the bowl and those that are best left on the shelf.
- Determining Portion Size; information on body type and size help readers understand how much food their dogs need to be in the best shape
- Problem Mealtime Behaviors; how to deal with the early morning wake up call, reluctant eaters, counter surfing and more.
I absolutely loved being able to review this book.
Rick Woodford pretty much sums up what you should and should not feed your dogs. Our dogs are considered part of the family, and are pretty much our four-legged kids. We want the best for them, and learning all of these great things makes me feel better about what we feed them, how much, and much, much more.
There are lots of recipes, and I have to be completely honest with you, I haven't made a single one. I plan to, and when I do I will add to this review. One thing that I have noticed that the ingredients are a little pricey, so I won't be making many of them.
You may or may not be interested in making any of the recipes, but this book is invaluable. It is a wealth of information that I've not found before all in one book.
If you love your dog, you need this book!
