The most important thing about living an active lifestyle with dogs is the health of the dogs. Since the phrase "you are what you eat" also applies to our furry best friends, I am constantly on the lookout for healthy dog food options. However, since I don't cook, for humans or pets, I have always drawn the line at making my own dog food. Being someone who has come close to starting kitchen fires by trying to boil water, it seemed like deciding not to make home made dog food was a wise one. However, I do want my dogs to have nutritionally complete meals that give them energy for our busy, active days. So when I was offered to give WellyTails WellyChef Veggie & Fruit + Chia Canine Blend a try, I couldn't resist. How hard could it be?
It turned out that the most difficult thing about making WellyChef dog food at home was keeping the dogs noses off the counter while I mixed the food. Making WellyChef really was very simple. I added warm water, stirred and waited fifteen minutes. If I let the food sit too long, it was okay! My amazing ability to get distracted from cooking is one of the many reasons I don't cook. Once the WellyChef blend was hydrated, I mixed in vegetable oil, fish oil and organic ground meat fresh from our local butcher. The food was then ready to serve. I made food each morning that lasted for breakfast and dinner for all three dogs. Best of all, there was very little mess. I had only a measuring cup, tablespoon, stirring spoon and the dogs dishes to toss into the dishwasher. Being an always on the go nomad, one reason I don't cook is that kitchen cleaning takes up time I'd rather spend doing something else.
