Thanks for all the info and advice on homemade foods. Growing up all my dogs were fed homemade food, and I'm not sure why I didn't continue, looking back. I'm doing lots of research to make sure that I do it the best way possible within my budget and lifestyle. There is so much info out there, that it takes a bit of work to sort through it all, and real world input is greatly appreciated. Can anyone fill me in on taurine? I have more reading to do, but I'd appreciate any info.

Thanks for the info vis a vis potatoes. Do you agree that they are at least not a bad choice as a carbohydrate in home prepared food? (cooked, obviously) What about percentages? Do you think 25% would be too much?
I appreciate that behaviour is the best place to reform, but with 6 people dealing with them it is very difficult (and frustrating!) to get everyone on exactly the same page. I will try harder....

Thanks for the info and empathy! I am striving to improve the all over quality of their diet, but I fear the behavior is deeply ingrained. As long as their is no risk, the potatoes are worth a try. I'll keep you posted!

Two out of three of my dogs are hard-boiled poop-eaters. Especially in winter when they ar nice and crunchy. Booo! Years ago an old farmer hanging around at the Co-op suggested adding cooked potatoes to their food to curtail the behavior. My question is, are potatoes a suitable starch to add to homemade food, and has anyone had success with this?
