Recipes

Most of our food is home made and we always use high grade ingredients:

Doggy cookies 

 

1 packet chick peas, soaked and cooked in 1 tsp iodised salt

6 eggs

1 Tbsp cooked pumpkin (seeded)

1 tin mackerel in oil or 2 tins sardines in oil

 

This is the basic recipe that you mix, roll into balls, flatten slightly and cook at 150C until slightly golden.

I modified by adding:

1 cup shredded coconut

1/4 cup coconut oil

1 Tbsp kelp powder

1/4 cup black strap molasses

1 Tbsp crushed garlic

1 Tbsp peanut butter

1/2 cup ground dried egg shells and linseed (I make this up and add a small amount to all my puppy food for calcium)

I also increased the cooked pumpkin to 1 cup (including skin)

My very fussy Frenchies are loving them!

 

HOMEMADE DOGGY ROLL/LOAF 

1 packet chick peas, soaked and cooked in 1 tsp iodised salt 

6 eggs

1 cooked pumpkin (seeded but include the skin)

1 tin mackerel in oil or 2 tins sardines in oil

1 cup bone broth

1/4 cup bovine gelatine

1 Tblsp kelp powder

1/4 cup black strap molasses

1 tbsp crushed garlic

1/2 cup ground dried egg shells and linseed (I make this up and add a small amount to all my puppy food for calcium)

2 cups cooked vegetables

Anything else you have on hand that is good for your dog; cooked fruit, cooked rice, cooked lentils ...

Blitz all ingredients together until well combined and looking like slop

Add:

 

Cooked mutton, goat or similar (chopped into small pieces)

1 cup chai seeds

1 cup pumpkin seeds

1 cup shredded coconut

 

If it's too sloppy, increase the coconut, if it's too stiff, add more bone broth.

Bake in loaf tins on a low heat - approx 120 - 150 until it is firmish to the touch.

Let cook and then chop into pieces to freeze for convenience.

 

PUPPY MOUSSE 

Put chicken frames or lamb/mutton pieces with bones into slow cooker with enough water to cover, cook on low for at least 2 days, until bones are crumbly. 

 

Add:

 

small amount of vegetables or vegetable scraps (a couple of carrots, some kale, broccoli stalks, etc)

1 cup uncooked lentils

1 cup uncooked rice

 

and continue cooking on low heat until everything is soft

 

Blitz with your blitzer stick until there are absolutely no lumps at all

 

Add:

 

1/2 cup bovine gelatine

1/2 cup linseed (freshly ground if possible)

 

Mix together well and let cool. It will set into a mousse like consistency. This freezes very well. I add Kefir yoghurt to it when I give it to the puppies.

 

*It is important to make sure you cook your bones long enough that they crumble; if you do not cook them long enough, your puppy may ingest sharp little shards of bone.
