How to have dinner with your dog

It’s the latest craze to hit the culinary world - do you fancy sharing lamb kofta with your Labrador, or how about soup with your Shih Tzu?

Dylan Watkins joins us to explain why he believes that humans and dogs should share fresh food together and to prepare a few doggy treats for us.

Consult your vet before making any changes to your dog's diet.

How to change your dog's diet

Changing your dog to a raw food diet is easy and takes just a couple of tweaks to your daily schedule.

  • Get the storage right

  • Find out how much to feed

  • Order the food

  • Make the switch

  • Get into the rhythm
