Question for those that do a home-cooked diet

Sabine is going to be helping with a home-cooked diet for Bentley soon and I have a question: Are any of your dogs finicky about their home-cooked food or do they eat it consistently? Bentley has been a finicky eater at times (mostly) & I'm hoping that with the home-cooked we won't have to deal with that as much. He has very happily been eating his rice & chicken or salmon so I'm hopeful that he will love his new diet with even more yummy stuff.

I think he will LOVE it and will eat it without any problems. It is so great to see them eat their food with such a pleasure. haha.

He will eat with gusto!!! And look up at you and say more please Mom! I did a home cooked diet with Sabine, it was delicious. Minus the vitamins that I added, I would take some for my own lunch. She will tell you how to portion it out. I would make a big batch on the weekend, portion it out for the whole week, take one out the night before for the next day. Once you get the hang of it, it becomes easy. Most of all he will feel better and that in and of itself is the most satisfying. You will be very, very pleased with Sabine, she is the utmost in a professional.

I currently do home cooking for my dog's evening meal and a little for breakfast with a side of kibble because of pickiness, digestive issues and almost a doggie version of 'failure to thrive' (was slightly underweight due to all of the above issues).

She eats her home cooked with gusto. There are some foods she does not like and some that do not agree with her and we have adjusted accordingly. I am sure Sabine will work with you regarding that.

I do a home cooked diet from Sabine with Henry. He does love it although every once in great while he still gets finicky and I add something to it for a change of pace like a snippet of egg or fish or something. It's rare that he deosnt like it.

my guess is that any dog that does like homemade food. , doesn't exist.
