This is a super book for anyone wishing to cook healthy, reasonably priced, meals for their dog. My dogs are already enjoying some of the recipes. Some recipes seem a bit fiddly for something that is going to be "woofed" down in 3 seconds flat e.g the mince pies for dogs- but I will try them when I have the time! My husband keeps thinking I'm cooking for him and indeed he could actually share the dogs' dinners that come from this book.

I've never read a recipe book cover to cover before but I did with this one! Who would have thought dog food could be glamorous!? A lucid and compelling account of the scary dog food industry precedes some great nutritional advice, and the recipes are divided into helpful themed chapters. Most importantly, reading this book made me want to cook for my dog, something I've never done (leftover pizza doesn't count). It makes total sense that the long term health of your dog is directly correlated to what you feed him/her, but it took someone bold to spell it out. For so long we've been pretending that those dry grey pellets and the hideous jelly-like tinned food we feed our pets is actually good for them, when in fact what we've been giving our beloved animals is the nutritional equivalent of a Big Mac. The recipes are very simple and make use of interesting herbs like rose hips and supplements like flaxseed oil - particularly loved the lamb muffins and the birthday cake recipes. A must-read for anyone who loves their dog.

I've always fed my dog on dried dog food but it's good to have some recipes that I can make and will be good for my dog. We'll be sharing some lovely grub now!

Having read a previous reviewers comments about how easy it is to use this just once or twice a week, I ordered this - and think it's excellent. It's informative - re nutrition, helpful - re suggested herbs for good health - and the recipes are easy to follow. The actual recipe contents, following the intro, advice on healthy diets, etc. - include Breakfast Menu, Daily Dinners, Special Meals for Special Days (include a birthday cake!), Tasty Treats, Recovery Recipes, Old Hounds, Herbal Home Pharmacy.
I'm unable to get some of the ingredients needed - ie minced lamb! So, I choose this ingredient in my super natural ready made dog food that I buy, then choose to make a recipe with minced beef, which I can get - or minced turkey, if I'm lucky...
Also, I choose to purchase, thro' Amazon, Lily's Kitchen dried food - which has the recommended herbs for good health included - so I don't have to try to obtain the 17 herbs - hoping that they are 'fresh/dried' too, or gather from the garden what I can - and then dry.
Finally, I choose a recipe according to what I have available, so could be tinned fish 'fishy treats' or meatloaf!
Only problem - must remember to prioritise hubby's tea before doggies!!

Brilliant book very informative about the recipes and their benefits . My dog has tried a few and loves them all. His favourite is the stew for sad dogs, great for when he is off his food .
A must have book

I recently purchased this book as I am obsessed with my precious dog's diet after she has recently been diagnosed with cancer. All I can say is that my dog has been scoffing the meals with gusto!!! I can especially recommend the sardine bake, she loves it!! If you have the time to prepare these meals in advance then I would say it is definately cheaper than buying good quality pet food, I make huge batches of the stews/casseroles and freeze individual portions. I have no negative comments about this book and have recommended it to all my dog owning friends!

Ok, so the sails & whales have absolutely no relevance here whatsoever but the puppy dogs tails do!

The very first meal I cooked from this book had both my maltese / shih szu crosses playing 123 red lights with me in the kitchen.
They started at the far end where the door in is, and everytime I looked round they had both moved a little bit closer but were sitting stock still until I could just sense their presence about 6 inches behind my feet where they sat until I had finished.

In fairness if you take the slightest bit interest in what you feed your dog some of these receipes will make you wonder why you bought the book but believe me it is very much worth it. The others in there are superb & the special treat meals like Christmas day and birthday cake for your best friend(s) are brillant ideas - I can't wait to make some of the breakfast ones when I can get a few days off next month. My dogs reactions to meal times have been bliss to watch and with a bit of forthought I imagine you could serve your dogs meals from this book 3/4 times a week

I bought this book as I have a shih tzu who has multiple allergies and I needed to know exactly what he is eating. It is a great book with easy to make recipes with plenty of delicious variety. I
now feed all 3 dogs on homemade food and they are all thriving on it. The cost works out at approximately half the cost of commercial food. I will never return to commercial food. Fantastic buy.
