Homemade Dog Food Substitutes:
We've all heard about the problems with dog food these days.  How can you be really sure what goes into your pet's commercial dog food, and where these ingredients come from? The answer is, you can never be sure.  For this reason, you may want to try some of these natural, homemade dog food substitutes:

Be sure to let  the dinner cool thoroughly before serving to your dog, to prevent burning.
