dogfood in the context of the indieweb, refers to the software practice of "eating your own dog food" but in particular with using your own creations on your own personal site that you depend on, day to day.

selfdogfooding in particular is one of several indieweb principles.

Since colloquial usage is a bit broader and (mis)biased toward a "a company [using] its own product", thereby implying people using work creations on work sites (rather than their own individual/personal sites), and not necessarily depending on them, it's helpful to have a more specific, more meaningful term to use in broader contexts:
