French chef Jess Young is committed to providing tasty and healthy food to her customers. Years of experience at the high-end of the restaurant trade have taught Chef Young the importance of good ingredients and careful preparation. After acquiring a miniature dachshund,Young realized that her new pooch deserved the flavor,nutrition,and safety that commercial dog food could not provide. And she learned that the menu for a tiny dachshund had to be different from that for an Irish wolfhound, so she has developed recipes for a wide range of breeds.

A Dog's Breakfast is full of trouble-free recipes for treats, meals, and even desserts. Most of the ingredients are already in your pantry. Try these simple and surprisingly affordable recipes in your home and you'll soon find your favorite Fido begging for more.
