Lean ground beef is a staple in my dog’s diet. It is a fantastic protein source. When it comes to protein, the source does matter. For example, protein from legumes (like lentils or chick peas for example) do NOT suffice. Please see this related article about diet-related heart disease in dogs.
This time, I added two small cloves of garlic to the two pounds of lean beef. I mention the reasons in my short video about the item – ground beef with garlic. I add a little bit of garlic (not too much) to dishes during pest season s a natural pest repellent. It is not a 100% bug fix, but every little thing we can do to ward off bugs naturally is a good thing.
Are you interested in adding healthier foods to your dog’s meals? There is so much information available online, yet still so many questions remain. Contact me to set up a personal Q&A session and we can work on a plan that fits your dog’s needs and your lifestyle.
So many days, as I watch my dog adorably gazing at me as I enjoy a range of foods, I ask myself, can my dog have some of this? My guess is you’ve probably wondered the same thing.
I do not suggest loading your dog up with a pile of unfamiliar foods all at once. The result there can be unpleasant for both of you. I do, however, know it is ideal to include healthy foods in my dog’s diet. Therefore, I try my best to include my dog when I make dog friendly foods.
And that’s what Dog Food Journal is all about. It’s part of Dog Food Coach, and chronicles the seemingly endless healthy foods I share with my dog – and you can do it too. I choose each food specifically because it is easy to find and prepare, and nutritious for your dog (and most of the time, you!).
Dog Food Journal is largely video and image focused. Enjoy short video clips of what I’m making, along with cooking tips, serving suggestions and more. And when you’re ready for more one on one learning, you can always contact me to set up a Q&A session via email, phone, text or another platform. Just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I also hope you will subscribe to my free email newsletter to keep in touch.
