So what is Shiner trying now? A raw diet. Yes - that's right! Feeding a raw diet to Shiner is something that has always interested me, but I've never been sure that I would be able to pull it off. It seems messy, time-consuming, and I'm not sure I have the know-how just yet.
Bravo Homestyle Complete Dinners for DogsThis is different though. For the next few months with Bravo Pet Foods as our new sponsor, Shiner will be eating Bravo® Pet Foods Homestyle Complete® Dinners for Dogs. This food is made with premium, raw, freeze dried meat as the #1 ingredient. Bravo Homestyle Complete Dinners also include organ meat, vegetables, cranberries, and natural herbs. It is raw dog food that is designed to provide complete and balanced nutrition for dogs of all ages and breeds.
I first heard about Bravo Pet Foods from our blog friend, Oz the Terrier, who eats a raw food diet and we had our first opportunity to try some Homestyle Complete Dinners a several months ago.

Now this type of raw feeding, I can do. The food comes in a resealable plastic bag, offered in a variety of sizes. It doesn't need to be refrigerated and you can store the food just like you might store dry kibble. All I need to do is add water to the food and let it soak for 15-20 minutes and voila! Shiner has a delicious, healthy, and nutritious raw food meal ready to go. Waiting seems to be the hardest part so far.
We'll keep you updated with our transition to a raw diet as we go.
Treats from Bravo Pet Foods
Bravo Pet Foods also offers a wide variety of yummy treats for both dogs and cats. Shiner has had her eye on a bag of Bravo Bonus Bites Dry Roasted Duck Feet over the weekend. I am waiting until after she has a dental procedure today to try them out since they look chewy.

On the other paw, Callie the Calico has been happily munching on Bravo Healthy Bites Freeze Dried Chicken Breast and Turkey Breast treats for cats. She loves these things more than any other type of treat I've ever offered her. Apparently, Shiner likes them too... she stole part of a bag and helped Callie finish it off.
Bravo is the only brand of food and treats that I've ever had to make sure I hide from the dog. Otherwise, she WILL get into it.
