Nutrition facts and more
A guaranteed analysis tells you how many macro-nutrients (protein, fat, carbs) are in a pet food. The percentages for each nutrient are relative to the amount of moisture in the food, so they are not apples-to-apples comparable to foods with a different moisture content (like kibble). We hope that some day, pet food regulations will require a more useful set of numbers on pet food labels. Until then, check out the ingredients tab for more "human-readable" info.
How long can I store this in the freezer?
Depending on how low you have your freezer set, it will be good for 4 months to 1 year from the date you get it from us.
How long can I store it in the fridge?
We recommend using each container within 4 days of putting it in the fridge.
When will it get here?
After you add something to your cart, the cart page will ask you to choose a delivery day and timeslot. We'll deliver your dog's food, frozen, within that timeslot.
Love from dogs & their humans
Her fur is so soft and shiny after eating your food, and she doesn't even shed anymore! Strangers sometimes ask what I feed her.
You have ruined our dog and now she is basically spoiled, LOL. She loves it! She gets upset when we run out and only have kibble.
Our dog is a super-picky eater, but he's obsessed with your food. You should hear the sound he makes when I take it out of the fridge.
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 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 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 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.
