Sheena's ultimate extra is a raw frozen deer bone. She will go nuts for it. And the added benifit is how shiny her teeth are when she is done.

Um... anything that isn't toxic?

If I've made something yummy and feel like sharing, she gets a little bit in her bowl. The majority of her diet is pre-made raw, but I also give her chicken backs, turkey necks, lamb neck bones, pork neck bones, etc. She gets a beef marrow bone about once a week, just for fun. When I do give her kibble, it's never plain. It either has a bit of canned food in it, or it has a bit of leftovers (so long as it's nothing toxic) mixed in.

She gets a pretty varied diet.

I feed Fozz Blue Wilderness Salmon (or Nature's Variety Instinct Salmon or Rabbit) about half the time. Because kibble is so calorie dense and fattens him up, I add some Evo 95% meat canned food, cottage cheese, yogurt, plain cooked meats, pulverized veggies, goats milk, raw egg, dried sweet potatoes, or anything else that is healthy that I have around. He eats raw meaty bones or pre-made raw for the other half of his meals. It's a nice balance between convenience and keeping him at a good weight. He GAINS WEIGHT on even a miniscule amount of kibble, if he's eating it for every meal, and he loses energy because I'm feeding him so little.

Gonzo used to get all of that, but he's on a home-cooked diet since his bout of sickness. He eats plain chicken or turkey, sweet potato, egg, and a couple of tablespoons of a veggie puree, with a multi-vitamin and bone meal.

Besides Orijen kibble, Jackson eats pre-made raw a few times a week (Primal or Stella & Chewy's). Whenever I eat eggs, I always make him some for him too. He gets food brought home like steak, chicken, etc, whenever I go out to dinner, I bring him home a 'doggy bag'. Oh, and he gets wet/dry mixed for dinner every night so different wet food.

I have some leftover food properly, it has an extra special treatment. When I buy fish, I always ask the head. Depending on the type of fish od we share all or go to her. I do not think I'll give him fish bones, but I'll make a vegetable soup and add to them. She eats cheese, stale bread soaked in fish (or chicken) broth.

I add a couple of tablespoons of canned pure pumpkin or plain nonfat yogurt to Riley's meals. He also loves Rollover treats and I put peanut butter in his kong

There are actually garlic supplements made for dogs. As far as I know, it's toxic in large quantities, but in small amounts, it can help as an insect/tick repellent. We got "bug-off" garlic for Boo in the summer and apart from her not liking the smell too much, she had no problems. This being said, we never gave her more than the allotted "dose."
