As dog owners, we love to give our dogs different experiences in their lives. Why not let one of those experiences be to create tasty, fun food dishes that offer them different textures, flavours and ways of eating. This recipe is great for creating a meal for them to enjoy and is simple to put together. It is even the perfect recipe for children to get involved with too!
Yianni is such a food lover! When we make his meals, he lays on his bed, watching us prepare each and every ingredient, waiting for those 2 special words to be spoken "food Yianni". With just those 2 words heard, he turns from a french bulldog into a greyhound when running for his food bowl! It's great to see and creates moments to remember!
As you are making this recipe or even as you read this blog you may have that annoying thought of 'I am sure I have seen a dog/dogs eating spaghetti and meatballs before!' If you did experience this we may have the answer - it's from the iconic restaurant ally scene in the Classic Disney film 'The lady and the Tramp.' All be it they eat cooked spaghetti and meatballs in the movie shared between 2 dogs in love.
Another great plus with this recipe is that you are able to follow it if you prepare their food yourself or if you purchase premade raw food for your dog. With this in mind, we have written 2 options in the recipe to cover each meat source. As this recipe contains vegetables, we would advise that if you are using premade raw food that it does not contain vegetables.
