I agree it is a great base to start from. I have been making my own dog food for every dog I have ever owned and it has been several over the last 40 years.
I always mix up the meats and veggies,to what ever I find in the reduced/sale bins at the supermarket so it doesn't have to be expensive. Sometimes its chicken,chicken livers,turkey,beef,beef liver,pork or lamb.
The veggies(3 cups) are always a combination of either/or ,sweet potato,carrot,peas ,beans,cabbage. I also add apples sometimes blueberries-1 cup .
When 1 see a reduced bag of apples I pick it up. they may be bruised ,but they are great for dog food.
My method is always throw everything in the food processor and grind to a pulp.
I add 2 cups of cooked white rice,2 cups of quick cooking oatmeal to the mixture( brown is much harder to digest) ,2-3 eggs and the ground egg shells,2/3 cup of a vegetable oil, garlic powder,parsley,oregano(1/2 tsp each, some water so it is not to dry, mix and bake at 375 for one hr in a 9x13 greased pan like a meatloaf.
I cut into squares and get 48 squares from the pan which 1 add a square each to their 1 cup of good quality kibble 2xs day.
My dogs are large and small and they love it and their coats are shiny.
I also give the large lab raw marrow bones for her teeth.
