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 clients to use. These transitional steps will help guide your dog slowly and gently into new, healthier foods. These are general guidelines and all transitional diets can be customized to your specific situation.
If you are interested, please email me for more information about transitioning your dog to better food. Once we are working together, you will get access to this transitional recipe information, free of charge.
Curious about homemade dog food? Here are some FAQs. See more on my FAQ page.
Is making homemade dog food time consuming?
Making homemade dog food can take just a few minutes, or you can spend longer in the kitchen. It really depends on your preferences and lifestyle. Some recipes can be ready in as little as a few minutes.
We can pick and choose some of our activities based on our priorities. Consider replacing a 1/2 hour of an existing activity (scrolling the web, getting lost in the social media vortex, playing a video game, etc.) with a 1/2 cooking session for your dog. It will be a LOT more rewarding!! Contact me when you are ready to start improving your dog’s diet.
I don’t even cook for myself! How can I cook for my dog?
Making dog food can be way simpler than making human meals. For example, you never have to worry about presenting it in a fancy way, and you don’t need to do dishes every day, except for washing food and water bowls.
We humans have the choice to cook for ourselves, go out to eat, get delivery, eat prepared food or whatever we wish. In our hearts and minds, we know what foods are healthy; we just don’t always eat them. But when it comes to our furkids, they have no choice in the matter, and it’s up to us to offer healthy options. Contact me when you are ready to start improving your dog’s diet.
