Dinner for Dogs Giveaway

*This giveaway is now closed.*

Happy Tuesday! Hard to believe that it’s almost August, right?! I’m just happy that summer is here, the sun is out, and the days are long.

A few weeks ago, the folks at The Experiment contacted me to see if I’d like to check out the book Dinner for Dogs, which features recipes for home-cooked meals for your dog. I jumped at the chance because I love cooking for Teton and pet nutrition is something I love learning about.

Dinner for Dogs author Henrietta Morrison concocted 50 recipes for every meal from breakfast to dinner and snacks in between. One of my favorite things about Dinner for Dogs is the detail that Morrison puts into her introduction. She covers calorie intake, dog food labels, and even poop(!) before outlining her many recipes.

I love the content of Dinner for Dogs, but I also think it’s stinkin’ adorable! There are fun illustrations on each page that bring the recipes to life and make it a fun book to flip through. One of my favorite sections is the one on vegetables and fruits – what can I say? I love cartoon veggies.

Last weekend I made a fun treat recipe.

Doggy Ice Cream 1

It’s been hot here (well, hot for a dog like Teton who has about 12 layers of fur) so I thought the Quick Doggy Ice Cream would be a nice treat to cool The Little Blogger off!

This is definitely one of the easier recipes in Dinner for Dogs. If it doesn’t seem that exciting, don’t worry – there are tons more recipes that feature more unique ingredients.

After just a few hours in the freezer, the Quick Doggy Ice Cream cubes were ready to be devoured!

And devoured they were.

(This was a particularly fun recipe because I got to use fresh blueberries from my garden!)

I can’t wait to make more recipes from Dinner for Dogs. Next on my list are the buckwheat pancakes. 😀

Now, as a reward for making it this far…

The Experiment has graciously offered to send a free copy of Dinner for Dogs to one lucky Her Dog Blog reader. Woot!

    1. Oops! I forgot to add, I would most look forward to making snacks, as we try to stay grain free and it’s much easier (and cheaper!) to make own grain free treats and control the ingredients.

    2. I would be very interested in this book as I recently started making my own ‘dog food” from scratch. I have seen mixed reviews with online recipes as far as what pets need and what their bodies can’t process. My little Mia also has very frustrating allergies to things like corn, wheat, cornmeal, dairy, fish and the list goes on. The pops are loving the two mixes I have concocted so far, but I feel the need to supplement with a little dog food (made from chick peas) until I figure out exactly which vitamins or other things I need to add. Thanks!

  1. Those treats look delicious! I would love to learn how to make healthy dinners for my dog since she’s just on dry food right now and it’d be nice to introduce something fresh and wholesome to her diet.

  2. Hi, I was wondering if you could review some interactive dog toys, like the Nina Ottosson ones (only if you think Teton would like them, though, because they can be expensive).

  3. Tgis would be a first for us. But we’re desperate. Our aging pup has ALWAYS been a picky eater. We have done everything from make him ground turkey, specialty dry dog foods to everything in between. Would love to make him some tasty, healthy dinners. He’s a one meal a day kind of guy.
    His birthday (8 years old!) is on August 4th. What kind of birthday dinner could I make for SIr Heff??
