Cooking Tips on How to Make Homemade Food For Dogs

When cooking ground lamb for dogs, the skillet method is preferred. Using a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, cook meat, stirring and breaking it up with a spoon or spatula until it is cooked through (do not overcook).  Let it cool until it is just warm to the touch.

To cook brown rice for dogs, cook according the package directions. Let cool to the touch.

The right vegetables and fruits for dogs are a very healthy addition to your dog diet, provided they are prepared, packaged and stored properly. They must be cooked so your dog can digest them properly. When preparing vegetables for dogs they should always be finely chopped and steamed. This allows vegetables to retain their nutrients while being suitable for dog digestion.

Fresh produce is always good for dogs. If possible, always use fresh when making homemade food for dogs but if one or two items are unavailable and you must use a frozen alternative, make sure there is no added salt or other seasoning or flavoring.

  1. The recipes look yummy. It would be nice if they listed nutritional break down, though.

    • I did’t notice any nutrition information on their site either. I cook meals like this as a treat and feed along with their kibble. I’m still not comfortable taking their kibble away, because I know the nutrition information. It does look yummy. I cook something similar for our dogs all the time – they love it!


  2. I was curious what the breakdown of the cost on the meal was? Lamb is not so affordable, do you use lamb all the time or switch it up a bit? I would really like to know, I am thinking about switching my dog’s diet and am wondering how much it will cost. Thanks.

    • Well, this recipe is from a company in California so I couldn’t tell you about the cost. I, personally, don’t feed our dogs lamb, because one of them can’t eat it. We only feed our dogs raw – chicken, turkey, and duck. Check out my raw food blog for more details:

  3. Hey, I’ll be honest…this recipe looked pretty good so I had to have a nibble. The dog got most of it though… 😀
