We are searching for an affordable, healthy, homemade dog food at our house. Mom isn’t ready to do the raw thing, but she would like to get away from regular kibble. The food should also be easy to prepare. Bailie and Madison are not real good at cooking, so they took on the cooking challenge with a new brand of food.
My GBGV Life received the Coco’s Canine Cuisine in this post to review. My GBGV Life receives no additional benefits for barking about Coco’s Canine Cuisine products or the company. The opinions in this review are the honest opinion of My GBGV Life. Coco’s Canine Cuisine is not responsible for the contents of this post.
The packages of Coco’s Canine Cuisine we received came in a 24 oz package which contained two 12 oz packages. Depending on your specific needs, you can make a big old batch of food like we did, or make two smaller ones as needed.
Making up a batch of Coco’s Canine Cuisine is super easy! If my sisters can get it done, anyone can! All you need is the food, water, a protein and 25 minutes to let it cook. We elected to use ground beef for our food but you could use chicken, pork, lamb, or any other protein you like.
Simply add five cups of water to the Coco’s Canine Cuisine package contents in a stock pot. Bring to a boil. Add one pound of meat, reduce heat, and simmer for 25 minutes.
Bailie was ready to eat it before it was cooked. It smells so wonderful! My mom said the only thing she found troublesome with this food is the smell. It smells so good, she wanted to eat it herself! It truly smells amazing! Your human could eat it as it is made with human grade ingredients, but it might be a bit bland.
What are the ingredients in Coco’s Canine Cuisine? Each package has brown rice, barley, wheat germ, potatoes, carrots, parsley, garlic, oregano, and thyme. Feel free to add more veggies to the mix if you want. There are absolutely NO preservatives, chemicals, additives, by products, corn, soy, sugar, or salt in the food! Once your meal has cooked, it will need to cool before serving. This homemade dog food can be stored for up to five days in the refrigerator, or you can freeze the finished product and defrost it in the microwave.
Bailie and I dished up our portions and snarfed the food right down! It was so tasty. I couldn’t help myself, I kept licking out my bowl even after it was empty! If your dog isn’t used to this type of food, you can mix it with kibble for a few days to transition over without any tummy troubles. Each 12 oz packet will yield about eight cups of homemade dog food.
Since Madison is still a young puppy, she had her portion mixed in with some of her puppy kibble. Puppies tend to be more sensitive to food changes and we didn’t want her to have any issues. Madison absolutely loved the food just like Bailie and I did!
We give Coco’s Canine Cuisine twelve paws up, and three tongues out! Mom also loves how healthy it is and that it is so simple and quick to make! If you are looking for an affordable, healthy, homemade dog food, we all suggest you give this food a try! Head over to Coco’s site for more information, and you can also order a free sample. The prices for the food all include free shipping, and there is a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If for some reason you don’t like it, you get your money back!
oh that looks like the food we need too… the mama scanned the whole internet for things she can add to my food when I’m a little older… thanks for a great review and a very good idea for good pawmade food…
Thank you. We love this food, and Mom says it smells so good she wants to eat it too!
Sparkle the PBGV says
That looks YUMMY! I did miss your cooking pictures, Emma, but the pups did a great jo. XOXO, Sparkle
For a chef like myself, this isn’t really cooking, so I let the beginners handle it. They did a great job!
We live that there are now all sorts of options out there for balanced homemade food! Time to put kibbles out of business!
There are a lot of good food options out there these days. Everyone should be able to find one that is the right fit for their dog.

We’ve never heard of this brand before, but it looks and sounds great! Do you add the meat uncooked and it cooks in the pot? I am definitely headed over to order a sample.
We added the meat in raw and it is completely cooked after simmering for the 25 minutes. Super easy, and the smell of it cooking will amaze you! It is wonderful food.
Madison is an adorable sous chef! I think it is great that the whole family cooks!
The younger girls are still just learning, but they have potential.
Frankie and Ernie says
OMD that sounds Delicious. And sorta like what Sarge’s Mom makes fur him… only she has to gather all the ingredients.
Mom has chicken vegetable fried rice in the fridge next to our food…have to be careful she takes the right one as they look alike!
Christmas the Dachshund says
Very much so!

Mom makes our food with a different pre-mix and it takes 8 minutes of waiting. That is soooo hard when you are waiting to eat. BOL! With all of the recalls, it is best to make our food at home. ♥ Glad you like this and have the kiddos trying their paws at cooking.
We’ve tried the dehydrated that is like an oatmeal when it is ready, but Mom likes it to look like food. Veg to bowl was good, but it took longer and was more complicated. This one is so easy and super yummy.
Kinley Westie says
It’s very tasty!
You are your assistant should with the Top Chef award Emma!
We are a family who loves to eat, so cooking is a good thing to learn!

I love how more and more choices are available for human grade healthy pup food. So happy to hear you’ve found something everyone likes. Enjoy…
Genevieve Petrillo says
Looks yummy. Is it made in America?
Love and licks,
It sure is, and the meat you add is whatever you choose, so you can make sure it is USA too.

That sounds like a good alternative to kibble.
It’s an awesome food!
This sure looks nommy…We had Mama go to their website and it is made of lots of quality ingredients too!!
(unfortunately, Arty can’t do wheat and it has wheat germ:-( )

It’s really good stuff, and smells so great too. Bummer Arty can’t have it, but that is the fun of a multi sibling home.
My Golden Life says
With the girls’ sensitive tummies, I’m almost afraid to try anything new these days. (I tried Natural Balance LID kibble for Shadow last weekend and even just an eighth of a cup mixed in with her canned food gave her a bout of diarrhea. So, we’re back to the old standby.)
The Coco’s does look good! What worries me though, is the garlic.
We don’t have any sensitive stomachs here, so it is hard to say how it would work with that. Garlic is fine for dogs within reason. You don’t want a small dog eating an entire clove of it or something, but it is in many different products dogs get all the time.
Tails Around the Ranch says
Pawsome review! We’re definitely going to look for that (have not heard about it before). Seems like every week there’s another dogfood recall so having safe, yummy and good-for-you good would be excellent. Thanks.
We love how easy it is to make too.
Sand Spring Chesapeakes says
Oh little Madison, you are the cutest chef ever!
She enjoyed her first cooking experience.
That is interesting, Emma. My biped isn’t ready for a raw diet either, but this sounds like a great alternative to kibble.
We really like it and it is so easy to make.
