Dog Food Cooking Class

Ever wonder what really goes into pet food? Trust me, you don't want to know. After my last dog Latte' died of lymphoma, I wondered if it was the commercial foods and treats I was feeding her. I vowed that the next dog would eat better. That was 15 years ago...

Chloe has been raised on homemade dog food made with organic ingredients.  She's healthy and happy. 

In this class you'll learn all my secrets to
making tasty and nutritious food that both you and your
pup will enjoy! It takes about 5 minutes to assemble the ingredients and 15 minutes to cook while you go do something else.
Pretty easy!

Coming in October
