Question by Terry: In a home-cooked dog food diet, do you need to cook the rice and potatoes?
Or do you just chop-up the potatoes raw and feed them to your dog, and just soak the rice and feed the rice raw to your dog?
I feel dumb for asking, but I don’t want to make a mistake in feeding my dog! I know what foods in general dogs shouldn’t eat, and plan to home-cook my puppy’s meals. I know that it’s fine for dogs to eat raw meat, as well. I’m just confused on the topics of potatoes and rice.
Also: how small should I chop-up vegetables?
P.S. – Please don’t tell me to feed my dog “regular dog food.” Dogs were not born only able to eat what humans decided to manufacture in bags and boxes for easy use by owners to give them. I feel best home-cooking, because of all the chemicals and heavily-manufactured things in boxed or bagged “dog food.”

You definitely have to cook rice and potatoes – dogs could not digest them raw and raw potatoes can be toxic.
