Homemade Dogfood Recipe Book by Brenda L. Blake

SKU: 9780796183552
  • Brenda is a passionate dog-owner, experienced dog breeder and a keen and qualified cook. Her insights shared regarding canine nutrition and how to prepare healthy, homemade dog food were gained through her studies at the Cordon Bleu Cooking School in Paris, France and to qualify as an ISO22000 Food Safety Management Systems Auditor. She has also researched canine nutrition over her many years of showing and breeding Kennel Union of South Africa (KUSA) registered small, medium and large dogs.

    After completing her Cordon Bleu Diploma, Brenda returned to South Africa and accepted a job with the Sunday Times national newspaper, compiling the weekly cookery column, testing recipes, and cooking for photography, before changing careers and completing post graduate studies. Over the years, through her work, Brenda has acquired an in-depth knowledge of cooking methods, food microbiology and food safety that has been most helpful when preparing healthy homemade meals for her beloved dogs.  

    Over several years, Brenda has audited Dog Food Manufacturing Facilities in South Africa, that manufacturer top quality dry and canned dog food and semi-soft treats for local and export markets.
    Brenda’s food and safety training and experience as a breeder has shown the benefits of feeding dogs high quality commercial kibble (with a 32% protein content) as a main meal, while supplementing the food with healthy homemade meals and treats.  Her friends and family have begged her to share her dog treat recipes – and so, this recipe book has been born.
