|If the dogs do well on them then they are just fine.
I am sold on very low carbs for dogs however. Max is far better off on his prey model raw diet than he was on chicken and rice I cooked or kibble. If I was forced to cook for him I hope I could feed something modeled on Lew Olson's Low Glycemic Recipe, mostly meat/egg/fish/organ/possibly dairy with about 25% low calorie veggies like broccoli, cabbage, zucchini, celery and the like - with calcium added of course.
I know not everybody is comfortable doing such a diet and that is fine. Dogs do very well on a wide variety of diets. If you hold the starch to about 25% [cooked weight] at the maximum and have a minimum of 50% meaty stuff then you are definitely providing a very nice diet. More to it for a completely balanced diet though, see Sedona's thread on balancing a home cooked diet for how tos.
