Do you know that the industry of dog food started to make use of leftover grains, baked goods and animal carcasses which were not fit for the consumption of humans? Yes, that is true! Most of these base foods remain largely undigested and will result in too many stools a day, especially in the Boston Terrier breed. If a dog owner starts with fresh and nutritious food which are designed to work in unison with dog’s digestive system, a much higher level of nutrition can be supplied than what one can find in a bag of commercial dog food. Below are some of the homemade dog foods for Boston Terriers that they love.
Doggie Beef Stew
Peel the skin off a potato and a sweet potato and slice them into small cubes. Place them in the oven for 8 minutes. In the meantime, saute a few pieces of beef. When they are cooked, add a half cup of water and a half cup of flour in the pan. Continue to whirl the ingredients together until the sauce gets thicker. Then, add the beef, some carrots, and potatoes. Now, just continue stirring for another 10 minutes and get ready to watch your Boston Terrier gobble it all up.

Turkey and Vegetable Dinner
Chop a pound of turkey meat into sizes which can be conveniently eaten by your Boston Terrier. Stir-fry in oil until done. Add ¼ cup of water, ½ cup of green beans, and ½ cup of carrots. Continue stirring for 5 to 10 minutes. Add a cup of cooked brown or white rice and serve it to your Boston Terrier.
Doggie Meat Loaf
While pre-heating the oven to 350F or 175 C, mix 3 cups of any kind of meat, 2 whole eggs, a half cup of grated or finely chopped vegetables, a half cup of cottage cheese, and a half cup of rolled oats. Roll them into small balls and place them in the oven for about 35 to 40 minutes.
Chop 2 chicken breasts into bite-size pieces and saute in some oil until cooked. Add 2 cups of chicken broth, ¼ cup of rolled oats, and 1 cup of chopped carrots, green beans, potatoes, and broccoli. Continue stirring for 10 to 15 minutes.
Chicken Casserole would give it the energy your Boston Terrier needs
Raw Dog Food
Chop up 1 ½ cup of raw meat either beef, turkey, chicken, buffalo, venison, or lamb. Alternatively, you can use a grinder to get a finer mixture. Add the vegetables to the grinder and mix all the ingredients together. Await the reaction of your Boston Terrier
These delicious snacks can be used as a treat and reward during training. It’s not really a meal in itself.
While preheating the oven to 350F or 175 C, mix together 2 ½ cups of wheat or oat flour, ½ cup of chicken or beef stock, an egg, and ½ cup of bacon bits, cheese, or dehydrated chicken pieces. Roll them and form into doughs. Flatten the mixture to half-inch thickness and cut them into desired shapes. Apply a little grease unto a cookie sheet and place the dough on it. Let it bake in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes.

Doggie Fruit Dessert
Combine ¼ cup applesauce, ¼ cup yogurt, ½ cup blueberries, ¼ cup strawberries, ¼ cup diced apples, and optionally a tablespoon of Brewer’s yeast into a blender and blend until smooth. Boston Terriers love this tasty dessert. You can add some creativity to this snack, but never use grapes, raising macadamia nuts, or chocolate for your dog.
What does it take to feed your dog a homemade diet?
For you to provide your Boston Terrier a homemade diet, you will need the following:
1. Access to Proper Ingredients
The basics you will need are fresh lean meats and green foods. There are also many other foods available from your grocery store which are great for your Boston Terrier. Some of these are sweet potatoes, watermelon, pumpkins, carrots, and eggs. Be sure to research also on foods which can harm your Boston Terrier so you can avoid them.
Fresh lean meats and green foods are very necessary for your lovely pets
2. Extra Time and Money
Preparing the homemade food takes much more time than just picking up a commercially available food from the market. Also, it takes extra time to research what is suitable for your Boston Terrier. Buying ingredients for food preparation can also be more expensive.
3. Stability and Consistency
Always remember that consistency is the key. Once you commit to the homemade diet for your dog, you have to stick to it. Boston Terriers have sensitive tummies. You cannot just start feeding your Boston Terrier randomly with commercial dog food after he has been eating fresh foods. Consistency can be a little bit challenging for dog owners.

In summary, it is worth a try to re-train our minds to realize that Boston Terriers do not need expensive commercial dog food. More expensive doesn’t necessarily mean better. Good food that we can control is so much better. Homemade portions can be made ahead of time and frozen in the fridge so that you no longer have to prepare it every night. When you cook for your dog, you know what he is getting. You will not have to worry about what will unknowingly kill your dog with food that has been commercially tainted. Remember that your Boston Terrier is not only a pet but a part of your family. Your children might not like the meals you prepare, but your trusted four-legged furry buddy definitely will.
