Cook for my dog?

Our Original Base-Mix requires some preparation, but don't worry, you're not cooking dinner for your dog every night. You cook a "batch=10 cups" at a time, of freshly prepared food. Health begins in the kitchen, diet is perhaps the most important aspect to maintaining a dog's health, besides love of course!

Sure it's healthy, but how does it taste?

Dogs love our Original Base-Mix, even the most finicky of dogs will thank you by cleaning their bowls. It's that good, in fact so good, once your dog has had a taste he or she will never settle for anything else. A food your dog will love to eat and love you for feeding it!

No Dyes, No Preservatives, No Chemicals

Commercial dog foods use preservatives to increase shelf life and artificial flavoring to enhance the way the food looks and tastes. Fresh meat does not "stay fresh" at room temperature for more than a few hours. These additives can have detrimental effects on your dog's short and long term health.

Healthy,yummy choice!

We have older dogs who have started to have some health problems. One is having eating issues. We were looking for something more nutritious than the chicken and rice we were feeding her but still gentle on her stomach. Our vet approved the nutritional value and our sweet dogs approved the taste. We are very happy with our choice.

My dog loves this!

My 9 year old Maltese Terrier mix, a senior rescue from Muttville, loves this! It makes feeding a balanced home-cooked diet very easy. I cook up a half package at a time since my girl is small. Super easy to order and quick shipping.

Three Senior Doggies Love Happy Dog!

All three of my little rescues are seniors now, each with their individual health issues. Happy Dog and supplements have given them better quality of life.

Hi Teresa, just wondering why you only gave us a 1 star review? Is there something we can be doing better?

We love our Happy Dog! I realized that we were running low and would need more dog food before our regular delivery date. I was able to txt someone at Happy Dog and get a shipment of food out the next day! How convenient and wonderful! When we opened the package a few days later there were treats and toys in the box for our very excited Labrador! You guys rock!!
