Would you like a change in the bowl? You can also easily prepare delicious snacks and healthy meals for your dog yourself. Here are the editors’ three favorite recipes.
Spoiling your dog with home-baked dog biscuits or a cooked meal from time to time is not that difficult. Our editorial dogs put some of the recipes to the test and found these three particularly delicious. However, you should note that the recipe suggestions are only an occasional treat for your dog. When fed daily, the dishes do not cover their individual nutritional needs. If you want to feed your dog permanently with home-cooked food, you should first deal intensively with the topic of dog nutrition.
