Should I Add Flaxseed To My Dog’s Diet?

The blue-flowering flax plant in the northern hemisphere is grown primarily in the northern United States and Canada. It has tiny brown or gold seeds that have a distinctive, nutty flavor. But can and should you add this delectable ingredient to your dog’s diet? Because flax is such a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, it can be a great addition to a dog’s diet! What are some additional benefits? Three tablespoons of flaxseed oil have as much omega-3 fatty acids as one pound of fish. There are 10 grams of protein to be found, plus half of one’s daily...

Propylene Glycol in Dog Food?!

Being involved in “everything dog”, sometimes I think that I have heard it all.  Sure, I know that there are ingredients in dog food and dog treats that are less than edible, unhealthy and unappetizing.  But after researching an ingredient I found in a dog food on our supermarket shelf, I was floored.  Propylene Glycol? Isn’t this the stuff they use in some anti-freezes?  Sure.  Is.  Although the websites of the food containing this ingredient state a long explanation skirting around the issue,  likening this ingredient to salt.  Is this acceptable to you?  It’s not to us. Why do dog...

Planting A Dog Friendly, Summer Garden

Summertime is upon us and that means a lot of things to many people.  For us, one of our favorite summertime activities is planting a garden. But no, not just any garden.  A dog friendly garden that we can share with our dogs! Yes all you dog parents, you should do this. Even veterinarians are beginning to advocate gardening for our furkids.  Fruits and vegetables added to your dog’s diet can provide endless benefits.  One of the reasons we started Your Dog’s Diner was to show that there were safe and healthy ways to “treat” your dog.  That’s why you...

How To Have A Truly Happy Dog

                    Are my dogs happy? I asked myself this today.  I had to think about it.  I hoped they were happy.  But were they..really? And how do we know? Every dog is different, this I do know.  Before Peanut Butter Brickle and Digby Pancake came along, I was dogmom to two rescue dogs, Skanky and Mr. Scottie.  They were content to roam the orange grove all day, visit my grandparents for lunch, and come home for dinner at exactly 5 p.m. everyday.  Take a ride in the car?  No way, not...

Is Cooking For Your Dog Crazy?

Is Cooking For Your Dog Crazy?                 I have had dogs all of my life.  I have bought dog food all of my life.  Whatever was on sale, whatever looked good, whatever was convenient.  Dog food was just dog food, right? A few years ago, if someone would have told me that I would be cooking for my dogs, I would have been quite confused.  I loved my dogs, but never entertained the notion that I could feed them something else besides what was in their dog food bag.  It’s not that I...

A Clean House May Be Killing Your Dog

  I am the kind of person that you may call a “clean freak”.  Having two large, shedding, active dogs in my home presents a challenge to my sanity.  I used to buy every household cleaning product on the market that claimed to deodorize, sanitize and get rid of every bacteria know to man.  After having two of my rescue dogs die from cancer, I began to question everything.  One of the things I questioned was of course what I fed them (part of why I started Your Dogs Diner), and the second was the environment they lived in.  No,...
