There haven’t been any problems with dry dog food, only canned. I would stick with that—puppies have specific nutrition needs that a high-quality dog food (Iams, Science Diet, Eukanuba) can provide for.

Cook him some liver with garlic. He will love it and it’s good for him.

NO! garlic is toxic to dogs. as are onions and chocolate.

a good diet for dogs is composed of protein, lots of vegetables, some but little fat and very little carbohydrates. lean ground beef, turkey, chicken (without bones!) chopped up carrots, celery, tomatoes, etc. stay away from anything with seeds or pits, as they can cause intestinal blockage.

innova is a fairly expensive but very high quality dry dog food. you could just look at the ingredients and make your own recipe.

Home prepared diets need to be carefully researched and involve a significant amount of time and effort (not to mention freezer space). I STRONGLY urge that you stay away from the raw diet fad – I see tons of chronic diarrhea cases as a direct result of that diet. A high quality dry diet is my favorite – my pets eat healthier than I do.
