I believe my dog is a Basenji mix, still haven't done the DNA testing, but will be doing it soon. She is almost 1 year old now and we're still having issues with her nipping and being very strong willed. Her diet consisted of Primal Dehydrated Nuggets and Orijen Raw Dry food, she's very solid, strong & healthy, but I am concerned about this raw diet adding to any aggression issues. She is at her worst after eating...super high energy and nippy.
So, I decided a week ago to switch her to a homemade organic diet of chicken, turkey, wild-caught salmon, sardines, eggs, most green vegetables, carrots, sweet potatoes, butternut squash and pumpkin, apples, banana's, yogurt and oatmeal, brown rice, organ meat once a month or so...supplemented with Dinovite and bone meal and powdered eggshells for calcium. The transition went smooth because she was already eating all those foods as well, she's just eating them 100% now - and she is very happy about it.
I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything or giving her something she shouldn't be having. I am trying to do a healthy ratio of protein, carbs and little grains. I am finding this way of feeding her so easy and less stressful because it's the same foods my husband and I eat, plus it totally eliminated my concern of dog food recalls. I'm happy to be off the store bought dog food wagon! Thank you for any suggestions and help with this!
