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

        BARK Bright Dog Dental Kit Review | Our Experience With the World’s First Dog Toothpaste and Dental Chew Combo
        BARK Bright Dog Dental Kit Review | Our Experience With the World’s First Dog Toothpaste and Dental Chew Combo

        June 27, 2022

        Most dogs detest having their teeth brushed. Many pups won't even let their owners come near them with a doggy toothbrush! Brushing your dog's teeth is obviously not always easy or enjoyable. It is also very easy to forget to brush your pup's teeth on a daily basis. Fortunately, one very reputable company, BARK, came up with a way to make doggy dental health much easier for us pet parents.

        We discovered BARK Bright’s enzyme-powered monthly doggy dental kit last year and have been fans ever since. BARK Bright's chicken-flavored dog toothpaste and dog sticks turbocharge the enzymes in dogs' mouths to keep their teeth clean and breath fresh. They are incredibly simple and effective, and the kits are conveniently shipped straight to your door.

        Is BARK Bright right for your pup? In this DJANGO Dog Blog article, we provide an in-depth overview and review of BARK Bright. It is based on our own experience getting the dog teeth cleaning kit for our sausage dog Django.

        DJANGO Dog Blog Interview Dr. Ian Billinghurst, the Father of the Raw Dog Food Diet - djangobrand.com
        Interview: Dr. Ian Billinghurst, the Father of the Raw Dog Food Diet

        June 22, 2022

        Dr. Ian Billinghurst is the father of the raw dog food diet and the founder of the BARF ('Biologically Appropriate Raw Food' or 'Bones and Raw Food') diet. In late 1993, he wrote Give Your Dog a Bone. The worldwide best seller is one of the most important books on dog nutrition ever written. It discussed why raw, whole food is best for your dog.

        As an Australian veterinary surgeon with 50 years of experience, Dr. Billinghurst has one consistent message: raw-fed dogs are healthier than their kibble-fed counterparts.

        We caught up with the long-time raw food champion and international lecturer to discuss the controversial raw dog food diet. We also dig into how gray wolves evolved into modern dogs, and we weigh the benefits of the raw dog food diet against safety risks like foodborne pathogens. Finally, we chew over how to solve the companion dog population boom and why so many veterinarians have raw emotions about raw pet food.

        Tumble Rugs Review: Best Washable Rug for Toddlers, Pets, and Modern Living
        Tumble Rugs Review: Best Washable Rug for Toddlers, Pets, and Modern Living

        June 15, 2022 1 Comment

        When Mike and I (Steph) moved into our new home earlier this year, we reveled in the spacious layout. Compared to our previous 650 square foot apartment in New York City, our modest new home felt like a palace. We soon realized, however, we had a lot of furnishing to do. Our hardwood floors, in particular, needed immediate protection. We have a boisterous 3-year old toddler, a long-haired dachshund, and a newborn. The last thing we wanted was for our toddler's toys, our baby's spit ups, and our pup's nails to destroy our new hardwood floors.

        While researching the best rugs for families with kids and pets, Mike and I (Steph) came across Tumble. Tumble offers machine washable and spill-proof area rugs with modern patterns and colors. Mike and I ordered 3 rugs for our home—a kitchen runner and two area rugs—and we never looked back.

        The following is an honest review and in-depth overview of Tumble rugs based on our family's personal experience using several of the rugs in our home.
