In Dog Obsessed, Lucy Postins shares her secrets to help you care for your dog like–or better than–family. Featuring over 50 easy-to-prepare recipes for treats, celebratory party fare, and meals that you can actually share with your dog (complete with wine pairings), this book also offers vet-approved health tips designed to troubleshoot common issues like food sensitivities and chronic illnesses, tips for camping and picnicking with your pup, as well as a two-week health and fitness plan.

Packed with humorous, helpful advice that goes beyond the average dog-care book, including dos and don’ts in the dog park, how to ensure your pup’s holidays are safe and truly special, advice on how to manage your dog’s unique personality quirks, and a section on make-at-home dog games, Dog Obsessed is the only resource passionate dog owners will ever need.

About the Author

Lucy Postins is the Founder and Chief Integrity Officer of The Honest Kitchen, the first all-natural, human-grade pet food company. When Lucy's beloved dog, Mosi, began suffering with chronic health problems that conventional medicine couldn't cure in 2002, she took to the kitchen and made dog food from real ingredients. Soon, Mosi's problems vanished, and that experience led her to create The Honest Kitchen to share her expertise with other passionate pet parents and their beloved pets.

    Great info, fun read

    By Annie on Aug 14, 2020

    Love this book! It’s beautifully illustrated and would make a great gift. It has loads of recipes to make at home, useful health and management tips for keeping your dog happy, and a fun tone that’s not too serious.

    Meh... Not Worth The Money

    By Aly707 on Nov 22, 2018

    This book is pretty much just an advertisement for Honest Kitchen products. I was pretty disappointed. Most of the information is very very basic and some of it is bull (like using the length guards on nail trimmers so you don't cut too much off. Those things are useless and just shouldn't be used by folks who don't want to make their dogs bleed!). I was hoping for some useful info but I wasn't satisfied.
