    With all of the scare regarding tainted dog food, I began making my 3 Jack Russells home made dog food. I found that it's quite comparable in cost, and they love it!

      I have 5 Dachshunds, 1 Great Pyrenees, and 1 BloodHound on my farm. I started making this food with minor adjustments for 12 years and feeding my dogs 1/2 Kibble and 1/2 this, because we had a Dachshund that nearly starved to death because we couldn't find a food she would eat. So I started making rice and cooking chicken or beef or ground turkey in olive oil which is great for their skin and coat and adding carrots,peas,potatoes, or sweet potatoes.It saved our Samantha and The vet always comments on how beautiful my dogs coats are and how healthy they are.

      I would definitely give this 5 stars if I knew the portion size. My dogs love it and it is easy to make and store. It smells and looks so much better than store bought food as well.

      I have an extremely picky 18mo. old Border Collie that has been underweight since we brought her home. She eats but not enough to put on weight. She is otherwise healthy and has lots of energy. We have tried numerous brands of dog food. I have tried everything including adding Nutri-Cal per my vet's recommendation. No matter what I added to her food she would lick off the additions and only eat a little of her dog food. I have been desperate to try to expand her stomach to increase her appetite. And then I found this recipe. I made it last month and froze it in portions in zip-lock bags. She loves it! She did pick out the carrots :-) After feeding the homemade dog food to her a few times I then began processing it with some of her dried dog food and she eats it all up. I think her appetite is starting to increase. I did use sweet potatoes instead of baking potatoes. I omitted the chicken broth and just used water in order to reduce sodium content and preservatives. Thank you so much for the recipe!
