    Do you make your own dog food or dog treats?

    With so many options out there for dog food and treats I was wondering if any people make their own. If so, how much time do you spend making food for your dogs?

    I make my own dog treats and have been doing so for a couple of years now.  When my dog was a puppy we discovered that he has food allergies, so finding healthy treats that don't bother his allergies is tough.  Making my own is so much easier since then I know exactly what goes into the treats.

    I guess you could kind of say that I make his food as well, because he eats a prey model raw diet.

    I never really paid much attention to how long I spend making my dogs food.  Maybe all together a total of around 2ish hours a week, including the time it takes for the treats to bake in the oven?

    I make my own dog treats. It doesn't really take that much time.  I just mix the dry ingredients with the wet, roll it out, and pop it in the oven. When the treats are done,  just break them up. I find that it's much cheaper and healthier for my dogs. I also make their food too.  I don't trust commercially-made dog food and treats. In fact, there has been a lot of reports about chicken jerkey that is causing kidney failure and deaths.
    My Pomeranian is 16 years old and still takes walks with us (slower now) almost everyday. That's over 100 years old in human years! He does not have any health problems...only a few missing teeth and mild arthritis in the hind legs. I've been making him food since he was a puppy.
