How To Make Dog Food

A few weeks ago I decided to learn how to make dog food.  My dog's skin sometimes gets dry and itchy and I wonder about commercial dog foods.  (I know there are plenty of good ones but I like to try to do things, you know...homemade).  After much perusing the internet and analyzing the various dog food recipes, I found a few that I liked and compiled them together.  Then I added some of my own ideas and voila!  Poppy loves her new, homemade dog food and I feel great feeding it to her.

This recipe is easy to make and smells and tastes delicious!  Yes, it's people food for dogs and I love serving it as much as Poppy loves eating it.

10 Favorite People Foods For Dogs


How To Make Dog Food


6 Cups of Water

1 pound of Ground Beef (may use turkey if desired)

2 Cups Brown Rice-not Minute Rice

1 T Rosemary 

3 Cups of Frozen Green Beans, Peas and/or Carrots

5 Eggs

Rosemary is rich in vitamins, high in fiber and an anti-inflammatory.  It's a wonderful spice to add to your homemade dog food and adds tremendous benefits.  

You can use fresh or dried rosemary.


  1. Put the water, meat, rice and rosemary into a large pan.
  2. Stir and bring to a boil over high heat.
  3. When it boils, reduce temperature and simmer for 25 more minutes.
  4. Add the various vegetables and cover for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat and store in refrigerator.

I like to add whatever leftovers that I have in the refrigerator that are safe and healthy dog treats.  Whether it's a ripe banana, a couple of apples or some leftover pumpkin or squash, it just adds some extra vitamins for dogs and a variety of tastes to her taste buds.
