I cannot cook to save myself. I want my family, dog included, to dine on a meal that looks palatable, tastes great, and inspires them to ask for more—you know, flipping the bowl upside down and silently demanding seconds.
I am not that girl. I won’t be preparing a finely orchestrated meal, complete with all the trimmings. I am not an artisanal style cook, as is very hip and trendy at present time.
Artisan style cooking means food is cooked slowly and naturally so that flavors burst. Instead of mass producing food, artisanal foods are all about taste, process, and being more handcrafted.
Gosh how I want to be an artisanal style chef. A girl can dream.
High-End Taste for Dogs Who Deserve The Best
Although my spouse knows better than to ask for a home-cooked meal, there are some things on which we agree: Ensuring the dog is well fed is high atop that list. It’s amazing how we will do without or sacrifice but we both worry about the dog and want him to be happy. I suppose that makes us a true modern family.
To that end, dogs these days deserve novel proteins in their food like tuna, roasted beef, salmon, and chicken cooked slowly. If you ate the same meal day in and day out and it was plop from a can or cardboard-style nuggets from a bag, how happy would you be?
The folks at Hill’s have developed a line of Crafted dog food products that is not factory, mechanically produced as typically most kibble is. Instead, oven roasting takes place so that flavor is locked in and the shape and texture are aromatically pleasing to dogs.
Dexter digs it, see?
We recently shared some fun indoor games that you can do with your dog, and that includes using the Crafted line of dog food as a reward. I have a bit of a finicky dog, so imagine my glee when he actually considered this food a high-value reward during game time.
How many of these qualities are important to you in selecting and feeding a dog food?
- Made in the United States
- No corn
- No wheat
- No soy
- Is nutritionally balanced
- Tastes good to the dog
- No artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives
- Available in grain-free varieties
If you answered yes some or all of the above, the Hill’s Crafted line is worth looking into.
Sit Back and Smile
Now, if you want to know why I do not cook for my dog or any family member for that matter, here’s a video that speaks volumes.
I love hip and trendy but I also know my limits. If I want my dog to have a quality meal and high-value rewards for indoor game time, I won’t be the one doing the cooking.
Instead, I’ll stick to what I know and leave the good stuff in dog food up to the folks at Hill’s, who employ Veterinary Nutritionists in order to deliver the ultimate in Nutrition for pets in a way that I would do it if I had the skill set.
Do you ever go without or sacrifice but never sacrifice for the family pet(s)? Does the Hill’s Crafted line sound like something your pet might like to try?
