Rollinghills Homemade Dog Food Recipe


Water 12 cups

Veges (carrots & garlic) 2 c.

Meat 4 lb. = 8 c.

Skim Milk 1/4 c.

Alfalfa (meal) 1/4 c.

Wheat Germ 1/4 c.

Flax Seed (ground) 1/4 c.

Kelp (meal) 1/8 c.

**Limestone, bone meal

or calcium carbonate 1 1/4 tbsp.

Oatmeal 2 c.

Rice 2 c.


Boil water in a large stock pot and add veges (use whatever you have available but no onions) and meat.

Boil mixture until meat is cooked, then add skim milk, and limestone.

Mix well, then add rice and oatmeal.

Bring to a boil and then reduce to simmer until rice and oatmeal are cooked (about 35 to 45 minutes depending on whether you use quick cooking rice and oatmeal).

Let stand until warm, then add wheat germ, alfalfa meal, kelp and ground flax seed.


Divide up into storage containers. An average size sheltie (20 to 25 lbs) eats about 1 cup

twice a day, or about the same amount as when feeding kibble (I.E. if you feed ½ kibble twice a day, feed instead ½ cup of cooked dog food twice a day).

Freeze if not to be used within three days, otherwise keep refrigerated until ready to use.

Can be warmed for feeding in microwave for a few minutes but make sure you stir it well after heating so that there are no hot spots that could burn your dogs mouth.


** Do not omit this ingredient! Calcium must be added to create a proper calcium to phosphorus ratio. If this ratio is not maintained, several other mineral levels will become imbalanced in your dog’s physical chemistry and health problems can occur.


If your dog is too fat, put more vegetables in and a bit less rice and/or oatmeal
