Naturalpetshop Homemade Dog Food Recipe #1 (Carrots, Spinach, Zucchini)

Carrots, Spinach, Zucchini dog food recipe

I’m a convert to the Naturalpetshop Dog Food Recipes for a few reasons. Firstly, I find a lot of commercial dog foods have smells and textures that give me such chronic nausea that I was gagging every time my dog (Yorkshire Terrier called Mavis) needed feeding.

I have tried many other sites looking for recipes that work and I cannot praise the Naturalpetshop Dog Food Recipes too highly.

Mavis seems to hang around the Kitchen quite a lot when I am making batches using Chicken, along with the Carrots, Spinach, Zucchini and Peas.

She can be a bit picky with food and after a few initial sniffs of the bowl she has taken to this one quickly. What’s more I can cook and feed her without any of my previous food reactions.

Homemade Turkey and Vegetable Delight Dog Food Recipe

Homemade Turkey and Vegetable Delight Dog Food Recipe

I find it funny that I am now feeding my dog Naturalpetshop homemade turkey and vegetable delight dog food recipe, when on some nights all I have myself is Salad or Sausages.

However, that’s the price we dog lovers make when it comes to feeding them.

There is such a well thought out mix of proteins, grains and vegetables I know that Casper, my Dachshund, is getting the right balance in his diet.


Great recipes and I look forward to working my way through a few more of them.

Naturalpetshop Chicken and Vegetable Medley Dog Food Recipe

Naturalpetshop Chicken and Vegetable Medley Dog Food Recipe

Keeping my rehomed Greyhound (Graham) healthy is a bit of a passion for me.

I like to make the dogs food, rather than feed him a store-bought product. There are very few suitable recipe books at my local library and I have had to check closely a lot of the recipes on the web.

However, since discovering the Naturalpetshop recipes I have been very impressed with their material.

They genuinely have worked hard to produce a list of 10 different products and that makes the diet more interesting to me and of course to my dog.

The only change for me is that I soak and cook the dried beans myself; rather than using canned – largely because make my own Bean dishes and it seems easier to prepare a few extra for the meal I am making for the dog.

Naturalpetshop Slow Cooker Dog Food #2 (Ground Beef, Kidney Beans and Butternut)

Ground Beef, Kidney Beans and Butternut

My 4-year old Labradoodle (Rocket) has decided that this Beef, Beans and Vegetables slow cooker recipe from Naturalpetshop is his favorite tucker.

He has never been a dog that is fussy with his food, so that made me confident that he would eat this one OK. I wasn’t prepared for just how much he would love it.

Fortunately, I portion control each bath and that makes it easier to not overfeed.

On behalf of Rocket and me, thanks Naturalpetshop.

Naturalpetshop Slow Cooker Dog Food #1 (Sweet Potato, Beans, Apple)

Slow Cooker Dog Food #1 (Sweet Potato, Beans, Apple)

My mother recently put up a Review after making another of your Crockpot recipes, so I thought I would give it a go. I ended up making a different recipe to her, but also one that cooks slowly while I get on looking after my 2 young kids.

I have a 3-year old Staffy called Ralph and he loves this recipe with Chicken, Sweet Potato, Beans, Apple and Carrots. I reckon he has a lot more energy since we put him onto the Naturalpetshop Slow Cooker Dog Food recipes. His coat looks shinier too.

Homemade Dog Food Crockpot Chicken Recipe

Homemade Dog Food Crockpot Chicken Recipe

Like a lot of people, I have a very busy schedule and it was such a bonus to find this Crockpot recipe that once on can cook away itself while I go do other things.

What’s more the recipe is crammed with great product like Chicken Breast, Vegetables and Rolled Oats.

I also make my own Chicken Stock with all of the Chicken Bones on a separate day; also using the Crockpot.

I then freeze the stock in takeaway containers and defrost one each time I am making the main recipe.

Manson, my 7-year old Boxer has never been fussy about his food to me.

However, we went away for the weekend recently and had to feed him a commercial brand pet food.

He sniffed it, walked away and only had a few nibbles. There was no such repeat behavior once home again; he got straight into the Crockpot Chicken Recipe.

Homemade Dog Style Beef Stew – Natural Pet Shop

dog style beef stew

I have an admission to make about the Naturalpetshop Dog Food Recipes Homemade Dog Style Beef Stew. It smelled so good while cooking that I grabbed a spoon and tasted it.

It was a little bland for me, based on my usual human version is made using Onions and Garlic and their omission along with Salt and Pepper is probably what is responsible for my taste receptors on the tongue wanting more.

However, this was an excellent reminded for me that Dogs should never be given Garlic, Onions or anything else from the Onion family.

Certainly, my two Schnauzer’s (Hank and Hilda) seem to love it exactly as per the recipe and that’s all that matters to me.

Naturalpetshop Homemade Dog Food Recipe #4 (Coconut Oil, Zucchini and Corn)

Homemade Dog Food Recipe #4 (Coconut Oil, Zucchini and Corn)

My dog Ronnie, is a lively 2-year old Doberman who adores this recipe. Aside from the Beef that I always use and the great range of grains and vegetables I think it is the Coconut Oil that has caught her nose.

Nothing like an empty food bowl every night to show her appreciation.

Naturalpetshop Homemade Dog Food Recipe #3 (Quinoa, Blueberries and Butternut Squash)

Naturalpetshop Homemade Dog Food Recipe #3 (Quinoa, Blueberries and Butternut Squash)

I have to admit I laughed when I read the recipe contents; Quinoa, Blueberries and Butternut Squash. They seemed more like something from a Health-Conscious Café recipe rather than a Dog Food Recipe.

Larry, my 3-year old Cavoodle has picked this one from the Naturalpetshop Dog Food Recipes as his favorite so far.

I’m really enjoying making the recipes as I know exactly what goes into the product.

Most of their recipes seem to have a 5 to 7-day shelf life; which I am OK with as I would rather feed Larry a natural product than something that has to include preservatives to get a longer shelf life. Fresh is best every time.

Naturalpetshop Homemade Dog Food Recipe #2 (Apple, Blueberries and Kale)

Balanced Homemade Dog Food Recipes

I must admit to having taken a double look when I caught the recipe description out of the corner of my eye. Probably what drove that was I had not considered using 3 of the 5 key ingredients – Apple, Blueberries and Kale – in dog food before.

How wrong I was; most dogs seem to like a sweet treat and my dog absolutely loves this recipe.

I’ve made it using Chicken but will try the Turkey next time.

Mind you; Boris being a Black Labrador is from a breed known to love their food, and then some, and then some more. Like the recipe says; “We would suggest this one more as a bit of a treat, so twice a week would be enough.” Very wise words.

I am working my way through some of the other recipes so that Boris gets tasty, nutritious meals. They are really economical too which is another plus.
