Mike and I (Steph) have tried almost every fresh dog food delivery service out there. As we kick off 2021, here are our (and Django's) favorite fresh dog food brands based on overall popularity on the market, customer reviews, and years of personal experience feeding the food to our adorable little sausage dog, Django.

THE FARMER’S DOG

DJANGO Dog Blog - Best Fresh Dog Food The Farmer's Dog

We've been feeding The Farmer’s Dog to Django for several years now and only have good things to say about this company and their dog food. The Farmer's Dog offers four fresh dog food recipes—turkey, chicken, beef, and pork—that are gently cooked at low temperatures to preserve the nutritional value of each ingredient. Each recipe is also fortified and boosted with The Farmer's Dog Nutrient Blend, a proprietary mix of essential canine vitamins and minerals.

The quality of The Farmer's Dog ingredients stands out. All proteins are high quality ingredients sourced from local farms and food suppliers that meet USDA standards. All ingredients are from the USA, and all meals are prepared and packaged in USDA facilities. One last plus? The Farmer's Dog offers environmentally-friendly packaging. The main cardboard box is recyclable, all insulating materials are biodegradable, and the food storage container that is included is biodegradable. Even the meal packages are made from BPA-free and non-toxic materials.

    PET PLATE

    DJANGO Dog Blog - Best Fresh Dog Food Pet Plate

    Pet Plate is another very popular fresh dog food brand that Mike and I know and love. This was actually the first fresh dog food we ever fed Django, and we've since had the opportunity to meet Pet Plate's awesome and dog loving founder, Ronaldo, in New York City. The first time Django ate Pet Plate, he actually carried his bowl out of the kitchen and into the family room so he could continue licking it.

    Pet Plate offers four dog food recipes: Chompin' Chicken, Barkin' Beef, Tail Waggin' Turkey, and Lip Lickin' Lamb. Each recipe is made with high quality animal protein, whole vegetables and fruits, legumes, and essential vitamins and minerals. You'll notice high quality animal protein is always the first ingredient listed - something to always look for when selecting high quality dog food. Pet Plate meals are slow-cooked, quickly frozen to preserve nutritional content, and formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for all life stages. The meals are made in a USDA-inspected facility in upstate New York, following the same food safety protocols used by Whole Foods.

    If you're looking to spend less, Pet Plate has popular topper plan. This lower cost plan sends less food to your home and allows you to mix your Pet Plate with a high quality dry dog food.

    Recipes: Barkin’ Beef, Chompin’ Chicken, Lip Lickin’ Lamb, and Tail Waggin’ Turkey

      Shipping: Free two-day shipping across the 48 contiguous states

        Kennel Cough in Dogs: Causes, Symptoms, Treatment, and Prevention

        June 09, 2021

        Kennel cough is a common and highly contagious dog disease. It causes an ongoing, forceful cough in infected dogs and swelling in the lungs, windpipe, and voice box. If your dog has an unrelenting cough that sounds like a honking goose, he may have kennel cough.

        While kennel cough sounds horrible, fortunately the majority of dogs recover without treatment. So what exactly is kennel cough in dogs? What dogs are most at risk for kennel cough, and what are its symptoms? Can humans contract kennel cough from their pets? Is there a vaccine for kennel cough?

        In this DJANGO Dog Blog article, we explain the causes and symptoms of kennel cough in dogs. We also review available treatment options, discuss the Bordetella vaccine, and provide tips for prevention.

        How to Train Your Dog to Love Riding in a Pet Travel Carrier

        May 12, 2021

        In an increasingly pet friendly world, dog carrier bags allow us to take our four-legged family everywhere. Whether you are about to board an international flight, ride on public transportation, go hiking, or spend the afternoon running errands with your four-legged friend, getting your dog used to a pet carrier is essential.

        Is your dog new to pet carriers? Nervous, excited, or jumpy in any type of dog bag or pet purse? It is very common for dogs to be scared of new carriers or even try to jump out, especially if they're not used to being carried. How do you teach your dog to love riding in a bag?

        In this DJANGO Dog Blog article, we provide several steps to help your dog get used to a new pet carrier.
