The reason I want to do this is she is getting too fat on dog food and yet she whines all the time for snacks. Since I have started this she doesn't want the snacks anymore. She has been so much more content and not so antsy.

But I would like some feedback if anyone is doing this. I know she needs vegs and fruits but she isnt' too thrilled with eating them. I tried hiding some peas and shredded carrots in some ground turkey but she wouldn't eat much of it.

Any help would be appreciated. I have been reading online about this but still not sure I have a good handle on it yet.

    We gave our dog cooked chicken and brown rice and she seemed to enjoy it. Sometimes i added small diced carrots and used chicken broth to flavor it all.
