Of course not every dog lives in a palace or has their own chef, but if you want to treat your dog to special food just remember it is not just the ingredients in dog food that owners need to be mindful of but also the quantities which you’re serving.
If you’re tempted to make food for your dog, it’s a good idea to speak with your vet to see if the recipe ingredients and volumes are appropriate for your dog. Bear in mind that some foods can be highly calorific so you shouldn’t give your dog too much, and you ought to reduce his daily meal portions accordingly. If you know your dog likes a change, isn’t sensitive to certain foods and is not overweight – then why not bake them a tasty treat. Just avoid foods such as onions, garlic, raisins, chocolate. A silver serving plate is optional, of course. Your dog will love you either way.
The Queen’s corgis, which have been described as a “moving carpet” preceding her as she walks round her royal residences, have become almost as emblematic of the British crown as their famous owner. So few will be surprised to learn that Her Majesty likes to treat them like royalty, dispensing succulent dishes of steak, rabbit or chicken from individual menus and served from silver and porcelain borne by a liveried servant.
