I ordered this book based on other good reviews. Although this book is a little difficult to use (measurements, strange ingredients, lack of specific guidelines for daily feeding portions), it is quite charming. The writing style and the little pictures are worth the price of the book. Once I figure out exactly how much to feed my 95lb. GSD and my 40lb. special breed...and what the heck "offal" is...I will use some of the recipes. Overall, I am quite pleased to add this cool little book to my collection of books for dogs and cooks.

Food for Puppy Thoughts!

I found this book to be one of the best for doggie recipes. I take in strays and they ALL love the recipes. Not being much of a cook myself I found these easy to follow and also very quick to the feeding bowl. Now guys......where is my kittie dining book for all my meow meows. At this very moment they smell puppy food and want some. Great book! Now, where's my kittie one to match?

Simple, down-to-earth feeding solutions that work.

I bought this book because my 3 year old, spayed Chihuahua was overweight, licked continually and lacked her old level of energy. Within two days of providing recipe #4, along with a Linolenic supplement, her licking stopped. (She had been on anti-itch drugs for months and they didn't work). Also within two days she adapted to the 5 PM feeding schedule I set forth and does not typically beg for a treat (unless I am having something she really loves). Until her weight is normalized, I will give no snacks. Even healthy ones. Some of the ingredients mentioned are not always found in North American homes, but determining an adequate substitute is not difficult. Missy has been on homemade food now for three weeks. Her hair is growing back, now that the licking has stopped, and is shiny and soft. She has dropped a little weight and has much more energy. This book is great as a basic guide to canine nutrition. The ingredient ratios are important to follow and are not complex to figure out. Creating your own recipes after reading this book is a snap. Cooking the food is fun and easy. Missy loves the warm meal every day and eats it all, every time. I weigh every meal to assure she is not overfed or shortchanged. I will never go back to commercial dog food.

There is missing documentation from this book.

While this book is absolutely full of common sense and seeming authenticity about doggie nutrition and habits, we need to know about the pedigree of the writer! Is he a vet? How does he know such detailed information? For example, daily feeding of 4.4 g protein, 1.3 g fat and 10.1 g carbohydrates per 1kg doggie weight is recommended. I'm usually willing to go along with such advice when I know it's source of authority. Another very significant omission - I would like a list of artists and titles for the wonderful prints included in the book, some are familiar, some not, but all are quite interesting. Isn't such credit to sources mandatory?In summary, the recipes were good, this reader wants more information!

Published by Ballantine Books, this cookbook is a unique way to feed your dog for the best in nutrition. The recipes are provided with both ounces and pound as well as grams and kilos, and each recipe also provides for difference sized dogs. With only about 35 recipes the book is small, yet who many recipes do you really need for your pooch. Recipes include Boiled Beef, Rice, Vegetables, and Egg; Beef, Pasta, Vegetables; Pig's or Ox Heart, Pasta, Dry Dog Food; Beef, Pig's liver, Oatmeal, Rice, Processed Cheese; Steamed Mackerel, Pasta, Root Vegetable; Baked Ground Beef, Pasta, Cheese, Egg, Raw Carrot; Cottage Cheese, Whole-grain Bread, Hard Cheese; Oatmeal, Apple, Hard Cheese; and Yogurt with Dog Biscuits. A Little Recipe Book for Dogs also offers some nutritional information that is important for the care and well being of your best friend.
