    Here's another book I had sitting on my bookshelf - long forgotten and probably never read. This year, I'm cleaning out the clutter in my life - including my books - so I grabbed this one to have a look. I enjoy baking and I adore my two dogs, so I'm guessing that's why I bought (or got as a gift) this book. On the surface, this is snazzy book. Lots of full color photos and pleasing overall layout, though I question why any canine cookbook would need a section for appetizers, or "yappetizers" as Here's another book I had sitting on my bookshelf - long forgotten and probably never read. This year, I'm cleaning out the clutter in my life - including my books - so I grabbed this one to have a look. I enjoy baking and I adore my two dogs, so I'm guessing that's why I bought (or got as a gift) this book. On the surface, this is snazzy book. Lots of full color photos and pleasing overall layout, though I question why any canine cookbook would need a section for appetizers, or "yappetizers" as they are so-named here. Seriously, there are no "courses" for my dogs, it's just FOOD TIME!!! (Yes, the three exclamation points were needed. You should meet my dogs). There are little notes scattered throughout, I assume meant to be helpful, but they seem to be merely a ploy to fill up white space. For example, on page 63 we get, "Put away all knives after use. Your dog can rear his head straight back to sniff out what's on the table, thus facilitating his sword-swallowing act. The New York Animal Medical Center removed an 8-inch blade from the stomach of one pooch patient!" I gotta say, if you're not smart enough to know that knives and dogs don't mix, then perhaps you shouldn't be cooking. Or have dogs. Or even be allowed out of the house. Even for someone who enjoys cooking, I'm not sure I'd piddle around with many of these recipes. Take for example the "Parelez-Voice Pizza" on page 52. There is a 6-ingredient crust (which also includes kneading the dough) and 7-ingredients for the topping. I'm always up for an in-depth recipe, but for my dogs? Probably not. As noted previously, they aren't super discriminating. They eat grass. And dirt. Occasionally a stick and bugs are always on the menu. But, okay, if you're the kind of person who wants to spend hours making a pizza for your dog to watch them consume it in 3-seconds, then go for it! This brings me to my biggest complaint and why this book ultimately gets 1-star from me. The ingredients. First, a vast majority of these recipes contain a sweetener - honey predominately, but also molasses and fruits (applesauce, bananas, etc.). Why would anyone want to get their pups hooked on sugar? As noted above, a vast majority of pooches are not picky eaters and the ones who are definitely do not need SUGAR introduced as a way to entice them to eat. I have no problem with giving my dogs fruit on occasion, they always get to share that one overripe banana or the apple that's been in the fridge too long. But that's maybe 2-3x per month. Not every day in every treat. We have ex-racing greyhounds and we've kept their weight pretty much perfect, but most dogs we see are already overweight - why would you give them sugar? We do have to worry about something many pet parents neglect - bad teeth. For whatever reason, ex-racers normally have pretty bad teeth to start. Do I really want to promote cavities with sugar? Also, we've had a couple of sensitive-tummy hounds and sugar can wreak havoc on the digestive system. Dogs rely on helpful bacteria for digestion and excess sugar can upset the balance of good to bad bacteria (as it does in humans). Do you want your dog to be more flatulent? Have diarrhea? A gurgling upset stomach? Maybe vomit on your living room floor? Then have it! Sugar it is! Sadly, the list of crappy ingredients doesn't end with sugar. Take, for example, the use of walnuts in many recipes. Walnuts are considered somewhat safe, though they are a food high on the scale of causing stomach distress; but moldy walnuts can cause seizures, vomiting and tremors due to the development of tremorgenic mycotoxins. Are you sure those walnuts are 100% fresh and not at all moldy? Why would you take the chance? Oh, and the same goes for pecans (yes, this book contains recipes using pecans). Again, moldy pecans can cause the same issues due to tremorgenic mycotoxins. And even non-moldy pecans can cause intestinal distress or an obstruction. That brings me to the use of garlic. Another questionable, hotly-debated ingredient in the doggy world. We all know (at least we should) that onions are highly toxic to pooches. They are part of the allium family and contain thiosulfate, which is toxic to dogs - garlic is also part of the allium family. Per the AKC website, "Thiosulfate causes oxidative damage to red blood cells, resulting in hemolytic anemia." I know for as many references one can find saying, "Garlic is toxic! Don't give it to your dogs!" one will find holistic and health sites saying it's fine and actually healthful for dogs. Many argue the volume of garlic a dog would have to consume to become toxic is incredible; however, even references pointing to the health benefits of garlic warn against feeding it to puppies under the age of 6 months, anemic dogs or pups with autoimmune diseases. Are you 100% positive that you'd risk it? I sure as heck won't. Especially when I am cooking these items and I control exactly what goes into them. It's easy enough to leave out questionable ingredients. That brings me to the use of white flour. In and of itself, this isn't toxic to dogs. But...it's a binder and texture ingredient and one stripped of any nutritional content or value. When you're in control of what goes into your dog's treats, why not use a flour with more nutrients, such as whole-wheat flour, oat flour or buckwheat flour? Furthermore, of the six greyhounds we've had in 14 years, two have struggled with digesting wheat. Take a look at how many "grain free" dog foods are on the market and you'll see it's a universal problem. Finally, dairy products. The book is filled with recipes using cheese and/or milk. I think cheese can be great as a training tool and it's not potentially toxic - but dogs, like humans, can be lactose intolerant. True, true - the recipes aren't made using a block of cheese or gallon of milk, but when you've lovingly prepared food for your beloved pet, why would you add an ingredient that could cause gastric distress? If you know your pup isn't lactose intolerant, then go for it. I know that our current boy has a super sensitive system and he would be lighting it up if we fed him dairy. Yeah, doggie flatulence is just an annoyance to humans, but is probably uncomfortable (or downright painful) for your pup. In the end, when you combine questionable, if not downright dangerous, ingredients with recipes that are relatively involved when you consider the audience - it's not a great cookbook. I'm sure my dogs would love all of these recipes - but again, they eat dirt (okay, not that often, but still, they've eaten it!). I wanted to make treats for my pups that were healthy and yummy and I can't in good conscience recommend this book to anyone.

I love everything about it except the content.I bought this book at Barnes and Noble for $14.95 because it looked gorgeous. I can't read small shit without glasses, but if I had not forgotten them, I would not have purchased this piece of shit. Having said that I am glad I bought it because maybe I can save a dog or two by sharing the following honest review with you. I know covers sell books and as a graphic designer, I'm a big fan of beautiful layout, so if this book was written in Spanish, and I had no clue about the content, I would have given it 5 stars. But fortunately it is written in English, my native language, and based on content alone this book should get no stars at all. As a matter of fact Goodreads should have black stars to use for books like this. After scouring the internet for info regarding my 15 year old dying dog and phosphorous, and finding a bunch of recipes that would kill a dog, I stumbled upon a three dog bakery site and thought wow that interface looks familiar. I think I have a book that is titled Three Dog Bakery. Sure enough I did. After feeding my 15 year old dog a homemade renal kidney diet brew, I thought, I should make something different, something unique for my other rescues and Yorkies. As I browsed through the book I almost fell off my f**k**g chair and I believe my exact words were, "What the fuck?." Kimball has a quote regarding profanity here on Goodreads. It goes like this. “Profanity is the effort of a feeble brain to express itself forcibly.” ― Spencer W. Kimball He's half right and half wrong. He would be right if he deleted the word feeble. So I won't say only feeble minded people would follow these recipes and give them to their dog(s) because that would be derogatory and that is not my intent here. So back to the book and it's lousy content, and lousy is an understatement. It sucks! Here is why. It contains recipes with ingredients fatal to dogs. Not enough to deter you? Okay a specific example. Recipe on page 66. The author describes the recipe as ".... ideal mates for canoodling canines." Well I don't know what canoodling means but I sure as hell know walnuts are poisonous to dogs and walnut poisoning is one of the most common insurance claims for toxic ingestion over at VPI Pet Insurance. The recipe on page 66 of this book calls for a whopping 1/4 cup full. The average vet expense for walnut poisoning is $281.00. If your dog is still alive and you still want to kill him or her, try any of the multiple recipes that contain garlic. Garlic is extremely toxic to dogs and cats and consuming minor amounts can lead to severe poisoning and, if not treated in time, death. Any pet insurance company can confirm this. But wait there's more on page 27 ... forget it. I'm done with this piece of shit. This book made me think I had a feeble mind. I kept going back to the cover to read the tagline, "Over 50 recipes for all-natural paw-lickin' treats for your dog" and I did that three times. They say insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly expecting different results. The crazy part is this got published and is available to schools! WTF? Even the thought of this book being available at a brick and mortar store is mortifying. Just an FYI the project editor for this book was Suzanne Evins and the home economist was Kathryn Hawkins. Note to self, never go to Barnes and Nobles without glasses again. I bought several similar books that day which I haven't had time to look at yet. I have a small library of over 100 books on animals, 70 books on dogs, over a dozen on birds and a bunch on cats. I own a large library of books on programming and coding and another huge library of fiction. I have read tons of educational books as well as a decent amount of fiction. I will post reviews as I find time unless the truly wonderful people at goodreads, band me, for having no filter. Feel free to comment. I am extremely interested on your thoughts as to ... as to ... how do I say this. Awwwww here's a great way to say it “What kind of fuckery is this?” ― Amy Winehouse

    Very cute, kitsch recipes for dogs. Most of the savory are based with ground turkey. Will certainly try more of the biscuits and cookies.

    Good beginner cookbook if you happen to be a dog lover who cares to cook for their dogs. Some of us are that insane and do not mind admitting it:)

    My dogs are HUGE fans of the bakery in town, so I thought I'd take a look at the cookbook. None of the bakery items they sell in the store are in the cookbook; however, at least one of the recipes is a big hit in my household. I like the cookbook and would recommend it to people who enjoy mixing together easy dog snack recipes. Melissa B.

    Most of these recipes are just silly, but it's a fun book peppered with little boxes of trivia for those of us who are indeed silly about our dogs. The "Simple Simon's Birthday Bones" are a perennial favorite, super-easy & make a great gift for other people's dogs, too.
