In all honesty i think it is the texture of the ground up stuff that he hates and the smell of the veggies.

I'm debating wheather to home cook my dogs meals or try the B.A.R.F. but I wouldn't have a clue where to find a ox tail or kelp or this green tripe or whatever y'all were talking about. After reading up on commercial dog food though I know I don't want to feed that anymore. I've just always heard don't feed dogs chicken bones they will splinter and also I have read where someone said beef rib bones can splinter...I have 2 small yorkie mix dogs, one who is not a good chewer at all, as a matter of fact he acts like it hurts to chew on hard dog food so I usually have to buy the small mini bites so don't know how he will do with bones but my other 2 absolutely love bones. Occasionally I would get smoked bones and feed them but from what I hear I shouldn't even give them smoked...they should only be raw. So where to start?? Can I just go buy raw and start feeding them or do I need to slowly incorporate this into their diets?

I read where some people just feed raw chickens, raw meaty bones, some people talking about grinding everything up, people adding veggies, people not adding veggies, adding Kelp. Seems like so many people do so many different things. I'm going to order the "Give your dog a bone" book tomorrow. I really hope this book tells me exactly what meat to feed, what to add to make sure my dog has all the minerals and amino acids and electrolytes and proteins they need. I want very specific directions, like a recipe. So is this the book I need to order to get that?
