I do, but my recipes are geared to toys, and I don't know how well they would scale up. I found these two sites very useful: DogAware.com: Diet Options for Dogs for general advice about raw and home cooked diets, quantities, etc, and http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp/search/ for information on protein, fat and calorie content of different ingredients. I put it all into a spreadsheet, and worked out basic recipes that way.
One thing to remember is that if you feed meat without bones (and never feed cooked bones) you must maintain the correct calcium balance. One ground eggshell per pound/500g of meat is a about right, so get all your friends and relations to start saving their eggshells for you. Let me know if you would like my recipes, etc.

yes, i do! about 1/3 of mochi's meals are home cooked, rest of the time it's kibble. i started a thread about this looking for more advice, and other members recommended a ton of books to get me started.
I feed raw mainly, commercial raw but sometimes I do homemade cooked...that still is partially commercial. They're meat muffins, the company sells the dry, you add the fresh, puree and bake. The muffin mix is called Canine Life Canine Life
Teffy, I just looked at the site. Looks good. I see they offer gluten free which is great for my Lou. He has some tummy issues. I've been feeding him Blue Buffalo but he spits out the "life source" bits (they are a little harder and a differ shape than the rest of the kibble) and those are probably the most nutrious part of the food.
Hey no problem,
Yeah, I like it cuz you know what's going in it is human grade. Before I give it to my girls I add a bit of Wild Salmon oil. They love it, it smells good, convenient (after you do a few batches and freeze them).
Yeah, Gluten free! How specific is that!!!
