What makes Feed Your Best Friend Better by Rick Woodford (or, as he’s more commonly known, “The Dog Food Dude”) so special? Well, not only is it chockfull of simple, wholesome recipes for your pup and tons of no-nonsense advice, it’s main ingredient is one we can all relate to: Love. Woodford was inspired to study canine nutrition after his beloved dog Jackson was diagnosed with cancer. Determined to keep Jackson at his very best for as long as possible, Woodford started studying the science of the canine diet, and constructing meals for his little buddy that were as healing as they were healthy—Jackson lived four more years, cancer free!
Feed Your Best Friend Better isn’t just a book of recipes; it’s a guide to helping your dog live his or her best life ever. Woodford takes into account the fact that not all dogs are built the same—each of our furry buddies has unique, individual needs that can’t be entirely accounted for with a pre-processed cup of dog food. Inside the book you’ll find plenty of tips for helping you adapt the advice to your own dog’s needs, as well as a handy and easy-to-read guide on everything from what minerals your dog should be getting every day, to how to set the mood for a more meaningful mealtime—there’s even a section devoted to Kong stuffings!
All of Woodford’s recipes are light on ingredients and heavy on amazing taste (the latter part is of course according to our much appreciative test doggie, who is still drooling from the “Good Girl Gizzards” we made her).
