More and more people are beginning to make their dog's food at home rather than buying commercial formulas. Homemade dog food doesn't contain any substances that could possibly be harmful to your dog's health such as artificial coloring and artificial flavors. Another reason to make homemade dog food is the preservatives added to the commercial dog food. Homemade dog food has the benefit of optimum freshness without preservatives.
There are dogs that would greatly benefit from a homemade diet. Some dogs who suffer from allergies that cause severe itching may find relief once switched from commercial dog food to a homemade diet.
Dogs are traditionally not very finicky when it comes to eating, yet you could easily find your dog turning his nose up at a dish that has been laying around the floor. It could easily be that his food has gotten stale or damp from sitting around all day. The same food that made Fido's tail wag when you poured it from the bag can lose its flavor and appeal since they have become dry and wet.
