Books We Love: The Healthy Hound Cookbook

We love to cook for our four-legged friends here at Dog Living. That usually means grilling an extra chicken breast or cooking some extra rice or vegetables to mix with boring old dry dog food. The Healthy Hound Cookbook takes it one step further and offers recipes you can whip up specifically for your pet.

Healthy Hound CookbookThe book is not just a list of recipes, it also gives reasons for cooking for your dog, lists foods that you should never give your dog, a portion calculator to adjust serving sizes according to breed, and includes a quick primer on dog nutrition. With more than 125 nutritious recipes using healthy, fresh ingredients, The Healthy Hound Cookbook will have your dog living a more natural, happier, and of course flavorful life.

Cooking for your dog is a lot less complicated than cooking for humans. Plus, no matter what you make, your dog is going to think you are the best gourmet chef in the world!

Here’s a recipe from the book that both you AND your dog can enjoy!
