Your dog's food should be safe and nutritious.
You can cook your dog's food yourself, but getting it right is hard. In one study, 83% of home-cooked dog food recipes were found to have multiple nutritional deficiencies. That's where we come in!
Our food is:
- Hand-cooked in San Diego, using the same ingredients you and I buy at the store.
- Designed by a PhD vet nutritionist.
- Lab-tested to guarantee that it exceeds AAFCO nutrition standards.
- Flash-frozen to lock in nutrition.
- Delivered anywhere in San Diego & OC.

2 Brothers & Our Dog
A family business
When Lluvia, our Great Dane mix, first looked into our eyes on the streets of Bogota, Colombia, we knew we had to adopt her. Her bright personality captured our hearts, and we went on a wild journey to adopt her and bring her home to Southern California...
Questions and Answers
Why should I feed my dog fresh food?
Kibble and other heavily-processed pet foods are made to meet minimum quality standards set by US regulations. They're full of fillers, preservatives and mystery ingredients that are either bad for your dog, or have unknown consequences for their health. Our fresh food diets, on the other hand, are made with natural, USDA whole foods. Within 2 weeks of starting a whole food diet, your dog is likely to have a healthier coat, a glint in their eye, and fewer digestive problems. Our recipes meet or exceed all AAFCO nutritional standards, so in the long run your dog is likely to have fewer health problems. And they're much tastier than kibble, so you'll have a happier best friend!
What ingredients are in your food?
We only use USDA whole foods that you can buy at a regular supermarket, and vitamin, mineral and amino acid supplements formulated especially for dogs and added to ensure that our recipes are fully complete and balanced.

How should I store the food?
Your dog's food will arrive frozen on your chosen delivery date/time slot. The frozen packages can be stored in the freezer, and defrosted in the refrigerator before use. We don't use preservatives, so please use any defrosted food within 4 days.
How much should I feed my dog?
Each package contains about 12.5 ounces of food. We recommend feeding approximately 1 package per 20lbs of body weight, per day. So if your dog weighs 12lbs, feed about 1/2 package per day. If they weigh 90lbs (that's a huge best friend you've got!), feed 4 to 5 packages. Every dog's metabolism is a bit different. We recommend adjusting from this starting point based on weight gain/loss, as-needed.
How do delivery windows work? Do I have to be home?
At checkout, you'll be asked to choose a delivery date and several-hour time window. If you aren't home to accept the delivery, we will leave your delivery at your door. Please be sure to retrieve it within an hour or two, to prevent any package from spoiling.
Can I set up a recurring delivery?
Yes! Many of our customers choose to feed their dogs fresh food full-time, and have orders delivered weekly or monthly. You will have the option to set up this kind of recurring delivery when adding a product to your cart.
