A festive menu for your dog

Any member of the family deserves a festive menu, right?

Why don’t you make the most of your Christmas cheer to cook some savoury delights for your pooch?

Follow our recipes and make your dog happy this Christmas by putting some yummy in its tummy!

A little advice before we start:

  1. Some products should never be eaten by dogs, even in small amounts. Learn how to recognise and avoid them.
  2. Avoid adding any salt and sugar when you’re cooking for your dog
  3. Make sure whenever you visit your vet you get some dietary advice every time. Start building this up and use what you learn to make the healthiest recipes for your dog.

Now we’ve covered the basics, here’s a festive 3 course menu for your pooch!
