Commercially sold dog foods may have harmful ingredients, so homemade dry dog food is the best solution.

Here are a few simple yet nutritious recipes you can make.

Recipe I


  • Wheat germ (1 and 1/2 cups)
  • Yeast (1/3 tbsp)
  • Garlic powder (1 tsp)
  • Powdered milk (3 cups)
  • 5 eggs
  • Ground beef (3 cups)
  • Wheat flour (5 cups)


Put the yeast in a cup of water. After it melts, add in the other ingredients. Mix them well. Keep kneading until the paste is made.

Add some water if needed. Let the dough rest for half an hour so it can rise.

Pour some flour on the counter’s surface. Flatten the dough with a rolling pin.

Continue making this homemade dry dog food recipe by chopping the dough into bite-sized chunks. Set them on a baking sheet. Bake them for 45 minutes at 350 F.

Serve this to your dog. Put any leftovers in the fridge. No matter how well it’s cooked, all the food must be eaten in three days. Keeping the food longer than that is unsafe.

Recipe II


  • Salt (1 tsp)
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • Cheese (shredded, any type)
  • Garlic powder (half a teaspoon)
  • Brown sugar (1 tsp)
  • Broth (beef or chicken, 2 cups)
  • Water (half a cup)
  • Flour (3 cups)
  • Bacon (8 slices, crushed)
  • Wheat germ (half a cup)


Begin this homemade dry dog food by combining bacon, broth, and eggs. Put the bacon juices there. Put the other ingredients into this mix.

Continue mixing until you get the dough. Spray some flour on the counter.

Put the dough there and flatten it up to half an inch. Slice them with a cookie cutter or knife.

Put the pieces onto the cookie sheet. Space each piece by two inches.

Bake for 30 minutes at 250 F. Allow the food to cool for a couple of minutes at the wire rack.

Recipe III


  • Four (1 cup)
  • Butter (half a cup)
  • Beef (1 cup)
  • Beef jerky (2 cups)
  • 5 eggs
  • Baking powder (2 tsp)


Before baking this homemade dry dog food preheat the oven at 325 F. Put grease and flour in a pan. Toss in the butter.

Wait until it becomes smooth before putting in the beef, eggs, and oil. Blend everything. Gather the dry ingredients and combine them with this mix.

Crush the beef jerky and put it in the batter. Bake for 60 minutes. Cool it down for 15 minutes.

Optionally you can put on some cheese at the top. Make sure the meal isn’t too hot when serving it to your dog.


Some dog breeds can be very particular about the food they eat. It’s a good idea to do some research on the dog breed so you can feed it properly.

You can also put some vitamins in the recipes for more health benefits.

You can mix and match ingredients if you like. Try making and giving these homemade dry dog food recipes to your pet sometime.

Don’t be surprised if they keep asking for some more.
