DIY Healthy Treat

Are you looking for a healthy treat to train or just give you Papillon or other small Toy breed? All you need is a dehydrator and some cut meat strips.
The outcome is finely crushed assortment of small bits of meat your dog will love.
Kept in the refrigerator in a closed container, they  will last for a long -, long time so you don't need to do the dehydration task very often.

In this assortment you have crushed dehydrated strips of liver (a favorite of  all dogs I have ever known) and chicken.

Here you know precisely what you are giving.
No fake color, fake baste, paint,  preservatives- nada!!! Only liver, and chicken , bought in the grocery store.
Although no longer available, I am posting updated photos of our now 8 weeks old Yolanda.
(She will remain with her Road's End flock for now)

Human -Grade Pet Food

Looking for Human-Grade Pet Food? Here's Why It's Near Impossible to Find

Thinking about feeding your Pap, or other pet a raw, fresh diet, but don't want to mess with it yourself?
Think again, and read the above. Are you saying your pet is your beloved family member? Then treat it just like you would do your human child. Give him/her something to eat, you would, or could give also your child to eat. Buy your meat right out of your local grocery store or butcher, and devote just a little of your time to chop, mix, freeze. Nothing more to it. 

Dogs and Rice and Vegetable

I keep hearing quite often that people feed their dogs rice with vegetable and perhaps cooked chicken.
Here is what I learned quite some time ago, and researched, resulting in a diet I provide my Papillons, made out of mostly fresh meat,some bone,  and small amounts of dairy and vegetable.


Rice belongs in the group of starches. Starches are a form of highly concentrated carbohydrates.
Dogs have no need for carbohydrates, which are an incomplete source of protein. Dogs need  good quality sources of proteins and fats  for building , and maintaining healthy muscle, bones, cell tissue;  which are given in a variety of fresh meats.
Cooked rice may be beneficial for an occasional dog suffering from diarrhea, but given on a regular base could lead to nutritional deficiency, and long term health consequences.
Look at rice as a "Filler". And "fillers" should definitely be avoided.

  • Starchy foods include:

Peas, corn, potatoes, beans, pasta, rice and grains


Here a nice chart for a quick look what your dog should be eating:



Please click on all the links above. Get informed, and start today by going to the store , getting a little bit of any quality meat, and offer it to your four-legged friend.
There is nothing better you can do by providing him fresh food, which you cut up in (small) parts, according to the size of your dog.
And serve!!

Papillon Hair Trimming

Trimming feet and hocks is the only trim recommended for your Papillon
Trimming the feet and hocks will make your Papillon not only look better, but he will track less dirt into the house.
Trim around and under the feet and trim the long feathery hair on the back of his lower legs a little; up his leg to his hock (heel bone) . A trimmed hock will show off the dainty, elegant appearance of your Papillon.
