If you’re anything like me, you consider your dogs part of your family, and you want them to have the best of everything. The best toys, the best beds, and the best foods too. Needless to say, my girls are spoiled.
It can be quite challenging to find a high quality dog food that isn’t packed with preservatives and ingredients that are downright dangerous for your four legged friends, especially when it comes to soft or wet food.
I finally found a super high quality kibble to feed my girls, but that’s only half of their meals: the other half is what I call Pippa & Lola’s delicious dog food recipe, and it’s sure to have your dog giving it 2 paws up!
Feeding them something natural and organic helps to balance their diets while keeping them healthy, and this recipe has been approved by my veterinarian.
This is something I have been feeding Pippa and Lola since I got them as puppies, and their health is top notch and their coats are shiny as can be, to say nothing of the fact that they just gobble this right up. My girls are Chihuahuas, but I break down their recipe below for every size of dog so you can make it too.
Of course, be sure to consult your own veterinarian before changing your dog’s food or if you aren’t sure if this recipe is a good fit for your dog. It never hurts to ask if you are not positive!

- 1 package of Coleman Organic® Fresh Ground Chicken (each package is 1 pound and perfect for small breed dogs, so if you’re cooking for a medium sized dog, use 2 packages and for a large breed dog, go for 3 packages and this should last about 5 days)
- 1/3 cup of organic frozen vegetables: peas, broccoli, carrots, or green beans are great choices (use 1/3 cup per package of chicken)
- Put your ground chicken and frozen vegetables in a large saucepan. Fill the bottom of the saucepan with water, so it will be about halfway up to the ingredients.
- Turn the stove on medium heat and stir the ingredients continuously while they cook on the stove top. It should take about 15-20 minutes for everything to cook through thoroughly, depending on your stove, and you will have some liquid left in the bottom of the pan. This is actually a good thing; dogs LOVE this little bit of juice and you can spoon it on over the chicken and vegetables when you feed them.
- Let the chicken and vegetables completely cool down before you give any to your dog. I feed Pippa and Lola half kibble and half of this homemade mix at every meal, so that’s twice a day. Also be sure to let it cool before you put it into a tupperware container and store in the fridge. Be sure to use this within a week, so it doesn’t go bad!
