Let us answer you this with another question – How would you feel if you had to eat the exact same food every meal, each day, for the rest of your life?


Not only would this be extremely boring, you probably wouldn’t be getting a nutritionally balanced diet providing you with all the nutritious ingredients your body needs. This is pretty much the same with our beloved furry friends.

Have you ever wondered your doggo begs for your food even though you just fed him? It is because canines actually ate a lot of delicious human food before commercially produced dog food arrived on the markets.

This is why they crave variety and that’s where healthy homemade dog food comes in!

Your pooch can benefit from homemade food in a number of ways, especially if your pet suffers from:

  • allergies,
  • gastrointestinal sensitivity
  • skin problems…

So, why wouldn’t your treat your dog like any of your other family members by preparing nutritious food from trusted ingredients?
