Would anyone like to help by adding to the information in this poll?

And by taking part you are helping the results to reflect the current feeding trends.  ;)

[And if you prefer you can vote in the poll without writing a post and that's appreciated too.]

I have some suggestions on.  It will be great if you prepare healthy dog food at home without any market sourced processed ingredient. And I  I personally feel that when it comes to quality dog food, there is no value for the brand that has no quality ingredients in its food label.

Thanks 02cash20, and it seems apparent from the voting in the polls thus far, that there are more folks who are feeding dogs some degree of home made food nowadays, than were so doing 5 years ago.

And if anyone would like to peruse that poll - showing what we were mainly feeding our dogs back then -  the link is here: What did you mainly feed your dogs 5 years ago?

Hello 909Dave and welcome to the forum!

Thanks for your input to this poll, and looking at the results so far, it appears your food choice of "Mostly raw +some dry complete +some home made" is a neck-and-neck favourite with a couple of other choices at the moment.  ;)

I wonder if this may change as others add their vote to this poll, or if indeed this remains a favoured popular choice!

I feed my dog home made food. I choose to feed him high protien diet that include meat, seafood and dairy products now a days. Some carbohydrate through vagetables and grains. I also started with essential fatty acids by feeding egg yolk or oatmeal.  These all foods keep my dog healhty, strong and energetic.

In the morning she gets 3/4 cup of dry. At lunch she gets 1 cup of human grade wet food (contains veggies and fruit) with a chunk of cooked sweet potato. In the evening she gets again 3/4 cup dry.
 Depending on the time of year she will get pineapple or watermelon or cantaloupe as a treat. Otherwise I dehydrate boneless/skinless chicken breasts and give those as a treat.
Hope that helps.

Our doodle dog was very fussy and had a sensitive tum. We moved her onto Butternut Box 6m ago and she has finished her food every time with no tummy probs since! Wish we discovered it sooner! It’s just cooked meat (60%) and veg (40%) with no nasties in! Highly recommended if anyone has fussy pooches or those with sensitive tums. My account has a 75% off link for anyone who wants to trial it butternutbox.com/Andrew267  :)

I’ve found that dogs don’t just need one type of food like some experts try to convince you. A healthy dog should be able to eat a varied diet as long as it is mostly meat. So I feed my dog a mixture of home cooked and high grade commercial dog food. She has meat, fish, vegetables, yoghurt, eggs and fruit in the home cooked depending on recipe. The important thing is to remember to cover as many vitamins and minerals as possible in a recipe but all vitamins and minerals over roughly 10 days.

Hello and welcome to the forum Zeldaella. What fresh food do you feed your dog? Would be interested to know, especially if you home cook.

I feed wet and kibble complete supplemented by fresh meals and snacks of meat, veg and fruit. I taught my dog to forage the good healthy fruits and leave poisonous ones or to wait for me to inspect what she’s found (fruit and leaves) sometimes we need to bring them home to be washed or cooked. I’m thinking of trying her with some raw meats again .
