Yellow Squash – Healthy Dog Food Idea

It’s summer, and here in Connecticut that means a lot of yellow squash. My dog and I are loving every minute of it.

Yellow squash is an excellent addition to your dog’s diet, and you can see a little example in my video clip about yellow squash.

I rinsed and sliced two yellow squash, and put them in a skillet with about 4 ounces of water. I steamed them on medium heat for about 10 minutes, and then turned the heat off and let them finish steaming.  Then, I transferred them to a shallow bowl to cool, and then covered and refrigerated. For the next three days or so, my dog and I were in heaven as we snacked on these a little at a time.


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.

About Dog Food Journal – A Day in the Life of a Well Fed Dog

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 I also hope you will subscribe to my free email newsletter to keep in touch.

Best wishes,
