3 Healthy Home Cooked Meal Ideas For Your Dog

Keeping your pet’s nutrition top of mind is important from the moment you become their parent, and throughout every stage in their life. Just like humans, packing your pup’s belly with plenty of healthy foods will help him grow strong to lead a long, happy life. In honor of Go Cook For Your Pets Day, we’ve rounded up a few tasty meals that are easy to make and healthy as well.

Easy-Cook Crock Pot Chow


  • 2 ½ lbs ground beef
  • 1 ½ cups butternut squash
  • 1 ½ cups chopped carrots
  • 1 (15-ounce) can of kidney beans
  • ½ cup peas, frozen or canned
  • 1 ½ cups brown rice

Just like those simple stews you prepare for your family, this simple dog food recipe is as easy as set it and forget it. Plus, it’s freezable, so you’ll be able to cook now, and fee Fido later. Find the full recipe here, or click the pin above.

Pet-Friendly “Woof” Loaf


  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrots
  • 1/2 cup peas, frozen or canned
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 5 eggs, 3 hard-boiled

Everybody loves a good meatloaf, especially your dog. The best part of a meatloaf is that you can pack it with plenty of healthy surprises so your pet can get their daily serving of healthy lean meat and veggies — and enjoy it too. Check out the full recipe here, or click the pin above.

Peanut Butter Pumpkin Treats


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup Xylitol-free peanut butter
  • ¼ cup canned pumpkin
  • ¼ cup vegetable, chicken or beef stock
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Feeding Fido pumpkin pie off the Thanksgiving table might not be the best idea. Surprise him with these delicious dog-approved treats instead. We’re sure he won’t mind. Find the full recipe here, or click the pin above.
