If you wouldn’t eat processed food, why feed it to your dog? From the acclaimed "Dog Food Dude," comes a revised and updated edition of his essential nutrition book for dogs.

Feed Your Best Friend Better is the only nutritional guide you’ll need, with helpful insight, charts, tips, and over 100 easy recipes for healthy dishes to help your best friend live a long and happy life. With even more recipes that will make any dog (and human) drool, this edited and expanded edition makes the transition to homemade dog food simple, with a wide range in options for the pickiest of dogs.

Using a combination of research and personal experience, Rick has used the same manuals veterinarians use when developing recipes to ensure everything about his food is whole, clean, and packed with nutrients. From nutritional value to portion sizes, each recipe uses a variety of herbs, spices, and organic ingredients to enable dogs to live better lives. With these meals, treats, and cookies, dogs will never miss commercial kibble.

In addition to over 100 recipes, other helpful chapters include:
  • How to Pick out a Commercial Food: making the ingredient label easy to understand with a breakdown of ingredients that are good for the bowl and those that are best left on the shelf.
  • Determining Portion Size: information on body type and size help readers understand how much food their dogs need to be in the best shape.
  • Problem Mealtime Behaviors: how to deal with the early morning wake up call, reluctant eaters, counter surfing, and more.

About the Author

After his beloved dog Jackson was diagnosed with cancer and given a year to live, Rick Woodford began his dog food journey. Using his professional research skills gained from over twenty years in data analytics, certified veterinary guidance and testing, and love for his furry best friend, Rick opened Dog Stew, a company that produced nutritional, homemade dog food for dogs in the Pacific Northwest. With the original intention to send Jackson out in style by cooking food usually reserved for humans, Rick found the transition from "dog" food to "human" food helped Jackson to live four more years, cancer free.

A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye.
