Transitional Diet for Dogs – Method 1, Step 1

This transitional diet is a slow transition to homemade dog food. This slow method helps your dog adjust to new foods. Method 1 transitions your dog into healthy ingredients one or two at a time. In step 1 of this method, we are using just one meat source and one vegetable. Method 2, coming soon, transitions your dog using a full recipe, but adds a small bit at a time. Check back soon for that!

Sample Transitional Diets For Your Dog

In the past, I’ve offered a couple basic examples of transitional diets and foods. I am now developing more thorough examples and strategies for Dog Food Coach members to use. These transitional steps will help guide your dog slowly and gently into new, healthier foods. My first installment is now available. These are general guidelines and all transitional diets can be customized to your specific situation.

Dog Friendly Fish Tacos

One of my goals in teaching people how to cook for their dogs is to make it simple. One way to do this is to make extra of what you are making for yourself, and then save some for your dog. Of course, this only applies to certain kinds of food. It does not apply to foods that are overly fatty, fried, spicy, sweet or otherwise inappropriate for dogs. It DOES apply to fresh meats, vegetables and other dog friendly ingredients.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome in Dogs – Foods & Making a Long Term Plan

Just like us, dogs can get irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a chronic digestive system disorder that can cause discomfort, diarrhea, constipation, mucus in stool and other GI issues. Please contact me if your dog is experiencing tummy troubles as a result of a bothersome food. We will work together to create a customized meal plan for your dog.
