James Beard Award WinningAuthor of cookbook for dogs says breeders and holistic vets have long known about the dangers of commercial dog foods. For safety sake, cook for your dogs.

In response to the massive recall of commercial dog food, James Beard Award Winning Cook author Linda West Eckhardt, author of The Dog Ate It: Cooking For Yourself And Your Four Legged Friends said, "It's simply safer to cook for your pets."

For maximum health, dog breeders and holistic veterinarians have long recommended cooking human-grade food for dogs. Because the health and safety standards of pet food manufacturing are so far beneath those for human grade foods, it is simply a safety factor, Eckhardt added.

"In my family, we have cooked for generations of healthy dogs with little concern for the safety of their foods. We know what they're getting because we've put it together ourselves.

Eckhardt's new book, The Dog Ate It, provides good nutrition guidelines for dogs of all sizes, a list of Doggie Diet Dos and Don'ts, and what foods to have on hand so you can invent your own Fido-friendly recipes, The Dog Ate It is perfect for an occasional treat or for every night. You'll learn which commercial dog foods are healthy substitutes for home-cooked grub if you must, and, just for fun, how to throw the perfect pooch party for Howl-a-Ween, Canine Christmas (Fleas Navidad), or Bowser's birthday.

The Dog Ate It: Cooking for yourself and your Four legged Friends. By Linda West Eckhardt and Barbara Bradley, Judy Kern, Editor.    Gotham, 9/06 $15. available from Amazon and bookstores everywhere
