1. Homemade Dog Kibble

Ingredients:

3 cups rolled oats

3 cups rye flour or whole wheat flour 3 cups cooked rice

2 cups dry milk powder 2 teaspoons bone meal 3 cups beef stock 4 eggs

1 cup lard

Before you begin, preheat your oven to 175F (80C). In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, flour, rice, and bone meal. In a separate mixing bowl, beat the eggs. Melt the lard and mix it into the eggs.

Then stir the egg mixture into the flour mix. Add the beef stock and stir until all the ingredients are well combined. ( hhdf )

Grease a large baking pan, cookie pan, or pizza pan and pour the mixture into it. This is a large recipe, so you may need more than one baking pan anyway.

Flatten out the mixture with a spatula or the back of a spoon and bake at 175F (80C) for around 45 minutes.

Try to keep the batch relatively thin, as a thicker batch will take longer to cook. It may also begin to burn on the outside, yet still, be raw in the center if it’s too thick.

The kibble should be lightly browned when it’s ready. Allow the kibble to cool completely before breaking it up into small chunks.

Store completed kibble chunks in air-tight containers in the fridge for up to 4 days. Any unused kibble can be frozen in air-tight containers.

Suggestions: you can alter your recipe according to your dog’s tastes by changing the beef stock for chicken stock or gravy, or even meat drippings.

It’s also acceptable to add a cup of minced chicken, hamburger, or beef to the batter before you bake it.

2. Simple Dog Food Recipe

Ingredients:

2 pounds (approx 1 kg) minced chicken or dog mince ½ cup rice

1 cup macaroni 1 carrot

½ cup frozen peas

1 tablespoon gravy mix 5 cups water

In a soup pot or large saucepan, brown the chicken lightly. Add the water to the cooked chicken and break up the mince so it doesn’t form clumps.

Add the rice and pasta. Chop the peas and carrots in a food processor so they’re in very small, easily digestible pieces, and add them to the chicken.

Boil the mixture until the rice and pasta are overcooked and have expanded significantly. Stir occasionally to stop the chicken from sticking to the bottom.

In a small cup or jug, mix the gravy mix and a little boiling water to form a smooth paste. Pour the gravy mix into the chicken and stir well.

Remove the mixture from the heat and pour it into a sealable container. Allow cooling before serving. Serve with homemade dog kibble. This recipe will store in the fridge for up to 3 days.

3. High Energy Dog Food Recipe

Ingredients:

2 pounds (around 1kg) minced chicken or dog mince 2 cups rolled oats 1 cup rice

½ cup pumpkin

½ cup green beans 4 cups water

1 cup chicken stock

Place the meat, oats, rice water, and 1 cup of chicken stock in a soup pot. Chop the vegetables finely in a food processor and add them to the meat.

Cook over medium heat until meat is cooked through. The oats will expand and absorb the majority of the liquid.

Remove the mixture from the heat and pour it into a sealable container. Allow cooling before serving. Serve with homemade dog kibble. This recipe will store in the fridge for up to 3 days.

4. Quick Doggy Breakfast

2 cups flour

1 tablespoon baking powder 1 cup peanut butter (smooth) 1 cup milk

Before you begin, you should preheat your oven to 375F (190C). Lightly grease a baking tray.

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour and baking powder. Use a separate bowl to mix the peanut butter and milk to form a smooth paste and then add this to the flour mix. Mix these together well until they form a thick dough.

Lightly flour a clean bench or surface and knead the dough lightly. Roll the dough out until it’s approximately ¼ inch (1/2 centimeter) thick. Cut the dough into bite-sized squares, or use a cookie cutter to create shapes if you wish.

Place the cookies onto the baking tray and bake them for around 20 minutes until they turn a light golden brown. Watch them carefully as they have a tendency to burn easily.

Remove cooked cookies from the oven and allow them to cool completely before offering them to your dog. Store any unused cookies in an air-tight container until needed.

Crumble the stock cubes and add these to the flour mix. Add the chopped liver. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs well and add them to the flour.

Slowly add enough water to the mixture to create a firm, sticky dough. Roll out the dough so it’s no more than ¼ inch (1/2 centimeter) thick.

Dip a cookie cutter in flour and then cut the shapes you want from the dough. Put the cut cookie pieces onto the cookie sheets.

Remove the unused dough portions and roll them out again. Press more shapes from the remaining dough and place these on cookie sheets. Continue until you’ve used all the dough.

Bake the cookies in the oven at 350F (180C) for approximately 1 hour. When the biscuits are cooked, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool completely. Store them in an air-tight container in the fridge. These should last for up to 2 weeks in the fridge.
