We are real foodies at The Wholesome Hound and when it comes to feeding our dogs, our principles are simple – if you aren’t prepared to eat it yourself, don’t feed it your dog. We love nothing more than coming up with Hearty and Wholesome Recipes for Dogs. Some of my recipes feature affilate links meaning I may get a small commission. This is of no cost to you – Thank you for supporting our small business
