The Barf diet is becoming popular because many pet owners are concerned about what they give to their dogs in order to keep them as healthy as possible. Technically, BARF means biologically appropriate raw food diet which simply means that it is more suitable to feed your dog raw and unprocessed food. Although there are many pet owners who may be interested in shifting to a barf diet, a lot of them have many questions about starting the diet program for their dogs. In order to help you to make the right decision and how to go through about it, Maggie Rhines created the book called “Going Rawr! Dog Lover’s Compendium (A Complete Guide to Putting Your Dog On A Raw Food Diet)“. This book is a current favorite among many dog owners. Read on to know more about the book and to know whether you should purchase it or not.
Every dog lover aspires to raise his dog in the best possible way. There are actually many reading resources available to help dog owners achieve this goal.

However, BARF assumes dogs are omnivores and therefor do not need vegetables and fruits, and the vitamins these food sources contain. This is simply not true. Below I compiled a list of Suggested Muscle Meats, Raw Meat, Bones and Offal for Your Dog: Some of the meats on this list may seem unlikely for you to find or buy, but you never know what you might find, so don’t discard them and keep an eye out at your local butcher or supermarket.
When it comes to portioning we rely more and more on information given we find on food labels . However, raw food used by the BARF diet don’t come with recommended portion seizes.
A friend of mine recently approached me and asked me , how I measure out raw meals for my pet. I was happy that I had the answer! In Maggie Rhines eBook “Going Rawr! Dog Lover’s Compendium”, known as , she explains how to measure out your pets serving size based on their weight in pounds or weight in kilos (whichever you’re more accustom with.) She also discussed how frequently to feed your dog, recommending twice each day raw feedings. These twice each day feedings are based on her suggested weekly feeding schedule, which balances out your dogs vegetable and protein intake on an overall basis instead of a per meal basis. Plus provides suggestions on what to complete with very thin or underweight dogs as well as overweight or obese dogs.
