Homemade dog food.

We make homemade dog food for our two dogs when at home or traveling. Thinking of doing the same?You can learn all about why and how we do it in our previous post. To learn how to make it, check out this video of our recipe, with written instructions below.


6 Sweet Potatoes
2 Heads of Broccoli
5 Carrots
1 Can of Chick Peas
1 Can of Green Peas
4 – 5lbs of Chicken (ground)
4 Eggs
12 Cups of Water
3 Cups of Rice


Put the following in a large pot: cubed sweet potatoes, diced broccoli and carrots, chick peas, green peas, and chicken. Place the 4 eggs gently on top. Pour in 6 cups of water and cook over medium heat until soft (approximately 1 hour).

In a separate pot, combine rice and 6 cups of water. Start on high heat until the water begins to boil, and then reduce heat to a low simmer.

Remove and shell the eggs, then return to the main pot before adding in the rice and mixing thoroughly. When cool, distribute into tupperwares and store.

This recipe lasts our pug and chihuahua about two weeks. We store the food in the freezer and remove as needed, keeping one container in the refrigerator at a time.

When serving, we add in some coconut oil and Nutri-Pet Nupro All Natural Supplement, a mixture with balanced doses of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and essential fatty acids. Our dogs are fed twice a day: breakfast and dinner.

Always consult your vet before switching to homemade dog food. The amounts or ingredients may need to be altered, depending on breed and/or general health concerns (allergies, age, etc).
