I have always made my dogs food. Homemade organic with veggies and meat, whether it be chicken, beef or lamb I always buy organic. I recommend one kibble, its Grandma Mae’s, its all natural, you have order it online, its one dry food if I’m traveling I give to my pup.
When your dog stays with Carmel Dog Walkers, he/she will receive an organic home cooked meal full of nutrition, (if Parent permitted). I’ve done complete research on this ~ I’ve had several Jack Russells who cannot eat chicken because it makes their skin itchy. This may happen in many breeds of dogs, so I am aware of this and switch up on the protein, I keep a close eye on how their reactions are.
Here is some information:
Now the best part about making homemade dog food – just like making anything at home – is that you know exactly what is going into the dog bowl, and not any of that questionable gelatinous gunk from the canned food.
But it’s important to note that dogs have different nutrient requirements than humans for their proportional body size, such as:
High-quality protein (meat, seafood, dairy or eggs)
Fat (meat or oil)
Carbohydrates (grains or vegetables)
Essential fatty acids (egg yolks or oatmeal)
Now this recipe here has a balance of 50% protein, 25% veggies and 25% grains, but the ratios can easily be adjusted to suit your pup’s breed and/or needs.
If the Pet Parent wants their own regime (food) we will only give your dog what you want. The option of our Carmel Dog Walkers Meal will be for those Pet Owners that allow this.
