I’ve created this resources page as a catch-all for what I think are the most valuable bits of information a dog owner could need when deciding how best to feed their dog. This list will grow as our blog continues to expand, but for now it outlines everything you need to know to make an informed decision about your pet’s quality of life. Bon appétit!

The Best Dog Food: My Top 10 List
It’s true, there is no “best” dog food. Every dog has different needs, but generally speaking will benefit from the same great quality food nonetheless. So I’ve narrowed down my top picks— the crème de la crème.
View the list of the best dog foods here, and please note that this list is subject to change as new products debut, information comes to surface, and (regrettably) recalls happen. So check back regularly!
Where to Buy High End Dog Food?
The cheapest, most hassle free way to get your pet’s high-end dog food delivered right to your door is through Chewy.com. Sign up online just once to schedule your deliveries automatically, and never have to worry about running out of food again. Shipping is FREE.
Frozen diets are the only exception, as they are very expensive to ship. If you want to feed a frozen raw diet, you have two options: find a local retailer, or make your dog’s meals on your own. More on that coming soon!
DIY Gourmet Dog Food
It may not be the most time/cost-efficient strategy, but preparing your dog’s meals from scratch can be one of the most rewarding experiences as an owner— and if you enjoy cooking, it’s a lot of fun!
We are currently working on a new video series dedicated to dog food and treat recipes that you can make at home from ingredients straight from your grocer or butcher. Stay tuned!
If you’re like me and enjoy thoroughly (in my case, obsessively) researching the ins-and-outs of your pet’s diet, here are some of my favorite resources.
