I like knowing the author makes these treats for her own pets. She addresses the topics of nutrition, health and a pet's age. My old guy is difficult at 15 years of age and he likes his new senior treats. Ms. Simmons has written a recipe book filled with tidbits of the do's and don't's about pet treats. Even if you have no oven, there are no-bake recipes. The book has something for everyone and their furry kids.
This was a timely purchase for me because the other day I was at the supermarket looking for a treat for my dog and I actually took the time to read all of the ingredients on the manufactured treats. Well, I was utterly disgusted and refused to buy any of those so-called treats! To start with, “mechanically reclaimed meat” is gruesome, let alone the amount of colours, additives and preservatives they also packed in. It seems the best solution is to make my own treats at home.I was really grateful for the section on foods which are toxic to dogs. Last year I had the unfortunate experience of giving my dog part of an old leftover muffin and, only after he had eaten it all, remembering that it had sultanas in it. I felt so guilty! Worse, though, was that when I mentioned it to the rest of the household, no-one else even knew that dogs shouldn’t eat grapes. It’s absolutely vital that we all know which foods are toxic to dogs so that we can keep our pets healthy.As for foods which are good for dogs, I was pleased to see that yoghurt is okay. My dog loves natural yoghurt and I often give him a spoonful, but I was never really sure whether or not it was healthy. What a relief!I can’t wait to try the recipes in this book. Knowing that the author – Vikk Simmons – is a long-time dog lover and owner, not to mention blogger and book author, gives me the confidence that I can really trust the information in this book. Highly recommended!
In addition to an unbelievable number of innovative doggy treat recipes (including no-bake options), this book is loaded with essential information about how to feed your dogs in general. I learned a lot of important DO's and vital DON'Ts when it comes to the healthy feeding of the pets we love. You'll get a lot out of this book whether you make your own dog treats or not.Another thing I really like about this book is the smart tech layout -- the introduction not only outlines the important concepts to come, but puts handy links to those sections of the book if you want to jump there right away.Vikk Simmons (ALifeWithDogs.com) is a great writer and dog guru, and every dog lover will benefit from reading this book.-Dan DeFigio, author of Beyond Smoothies
I actually purchased this for myself. I was tired of all the recalls on pet treats. I don't want my dog to die from an allergic ingredient I wasn't aware of. I decided to bake my own. I have used one recipe and my dog loved the treats. I'm sure I will use the book more after Christmas. There are some ingredients I may put on my grocery wish list for my birthday in January, since they are not something I have used before.I am very pleased with the book. Vikk has tried to make the directions as easy a possible.
Wonderfully written and the recipes are great. I have only made one it's the one that has rolled oats and organic peanut butter and skim milk, I placed them in a container in the fridge and she will get one a day as peanut butter is fattening. I would recommend this book to anyone.
This book is must read for any dog owner! I love all the information that this book has to offer. This book is much more than a pet treat book. It is filled with tips and recipes. I had no idea of all the unhealthy ingredients in the store bought pet treats. I am going to feel so much better giving my puppy a healthy start to life and look forward to trying the pupcakes and the natural flea remedy treats and adding cinnamon to the recipes. I am even going to make some of these treats for my friends furry babies for the holidays.
I'm moving to the healthy nutritional cooking supplement for our dogs and this is perfect to add to my recipe inventory. Our miniature schnauzer will hardly eat any treats that I buy .... so buy need, I'm teaching myself the healthier nutritious cooking for my dogs.
I always wanted to make my own dog treat as the nutritious ones at the pet shop store do cost a bundle and you are never sure what goes into it. This cookbook for dog has all the recipes I need to get me started. These include no-cook dog treats, cookies, biscuits, pupcakes, senior dog treats, dehydrated dog treats, training treats and alternative treats. Beyond the recipes this book has lots of information on how cook for your dog including preparation, storage tips, baking tips, handling dog food, kitchen equipment needed, how many treats you should give your dog according to its weight, the health benefits of homemade treats asnd more. If you are a dog owner and sensitive, you will enjoy this book very much. It is well made and very informative. I especially like that the author gave some recipes for senior dog, since my dog is already 10 years old and not a pup anymore. I'll be making lots of recipes from this book as they are easy to make and healthier that what I usually give my dog.
