Her energy level has increased and she is just as happy as can be.
January 5, 2017
Our girl, Bianca, loves Canidae pet food (duck) and treats (all but salmon). She is so soft, shreds less and is a very happy girl. We’ve realized the only food she cannot eat is salmon. I’ve tried multiple dog foods over the years, but have found Canidae to be the best by far. We changed Bianca over to Canidae due to allergies, even though she was already on grain fee, no preservative food, as I know sometimes dogs can become allergic to dog foods. So far, Bianca has done well she shakes her head less and scratches less. Her energy level has increased and she is just as happy as can be. Everyone who meets her always comments on her coat and how soft it is. Bianca loves the treats too! I wish the treats where the size of half of a half of a cookie, because we give her a fair amount of cookies, as she is food motivated and they work well with training her to do new tricks. However they are easy enough to break, so no biggie. It would be awesome if you had training treats. Bianca has also slimmed down considerable, as we put her on a diet and only feed her Canidae, nothing else. She lost 10 lbs and is very healthly.
We also love the little surprises we receives in the mail.
Thank you very much.

All my kids do very well on CANIDAE All Stages food.
December 16, 2016
I have been using Canidae food for over 20 years. My kids (animals) are my life. I have had 3 generations of dog groups. Starting in 1981 up to now. This will be my 4th. I have used the same kibble for a 3 pound dog up to a 200 pound dog meaning they all get the same food staring from a 8 week old puppy to a 17 year old dog. My black standard poodle had to go on to the pure sky for about 4 years because he had loose stools. But now he’s back on the all stages.
To help me out I’ve been able to get coupons from Canidae since I average 5 to 10 d0gs. My dogs are very spoiled and health wise very healthy. I take them to the dog park about 4 days a week. They all go to the vet yearly for their well check.
My breeds over the years have been Irish wolf hounds, standard poodles, chihuahuas, and always a mutt.
I am so gorgeous and healthy is also because eat only good stuff

I am truly happy with your products and I really appreciate your approach with the animal food business.
We love your dog foods and I am happy about the quality.
The taste they love with the quality I love in your foods

I just wanted to say thank you for making such a quality dog food. My two dogs have grown up on All Life Stages and when my younger mixed breed started getting allergies due to grains, I was SO thrilled to find a food she could handle in your PURE line. She has always been the pickiest eater, but has never turned her nose away from a bowl of Canidae. I always know I can find. Especially when it comes to their daily PURE Duck and Chickpea treat!
I know I can promote Canidae with confidence to every customer in need of a good dog food for their four legged family members.
What a TOTAL success!

I am a college student on a budget with a 7-month-old rat terrier, Wally. I love him to death, so I was understandably upset when I noticed he was developing consistent stomach problems. I switch from food to food and visited the vet three separate times to try and find the underlying issue. After it was determined that Wally suffered from stomach sensitivity, I set out on the hunt to find a food that could calm his bothered belly. After visiting with a pet nutritionist at a local Petco, she marched me straight over to Under the Sun dog food. She told me it was likely that my dog had developed allergies to chicken, grain, and other ingredients found in big-name dog foods. Desperate, I gave it a try. What a TOTAL success! Wally has been on Under the Sun grain-free dog food with lamb for a while now with no more issues! I couldn’t believe it! He loves both the wet and dry dog food and his issues were almost gone overnight. I cannot recommend this brand enough to others struggling with stomach sensitivity in their dogs as well. To top it off, Under the Sun is budget friendly and consistently offers coupons or discounts to help alleviate the cost which is a huge bonus for me. Thank you Canidae for this dog food!
We wanted her to have only the best and healthiest dog food which you provide.

Tasia’s story began as a shelter dog in Jerome Idaho. The shelter there tried and tried to find a home for her but it wasn’t meant to be so they sent her to the no kill animal shelter in Hailey Idaho where she spent a few weeks there playing with the other dogs and playing in the snow. Mom and I had just lost our dear Dansko a Black Lab at the age of 12 on December 6th and couldn’t bare to be without the love of a dog. Mom and I prayed and with Gods will decided we needed to look for our new family member however it never would replace our Dansko . The animal shelter in Hailey has a web page and as soon as we searched our little Tasia showed up on the web page. We knew we needed to go see her as it was love at first site.
The drive to Hailey was very special as we had the love from our Dansko in our hearts leading us to Tasia. In life there are special angels and he made this trip in spirit with us. When we arrived at the shelter we asked to see Tasia and when they brought her to the play area she looked at Mom and I and rolled on her side being the submissive one. We knew in our hearts this was the one for us. Anastasia was her given name by the shelter and it means reincarnated. We truly believe she is our last three dogs rolled into one. Tasia will be three in March and has been eating Canidae Grain Free dog food since we brought her home when she was a puppy. We wanted her to have only the best and healthiest dog food which you provide. It is the best food and she is so healthy and has a beautiful coat. We have recommended your food to many others and will continue to do so. So from our family to yours thank you and Merry Christmas…..
-Amy, Linda and Tasia

Hello! We absolutely love your grain free food! We have 2 rescued dogs, Misfit and Ozzy. Misfit is a 4 yr old blind Doberman and Ozzy we think is 2 and some kind of beagle (we aren’t too sure we just found him in the city one day!) They absolutely LOVE Under the Sun! They’ve tried the chicken and the lamb grain free and next we plan on trying the whitefish!!! We were hoping you could send us some coupons? It would be such a big help to us! We love you guys, keep doing what your doing!
Within a few weeks her coat was beautifully silky and no dandruff!

When I adopted Sammie, a border collie mix, back in January of this year. When I got her she was eating a generic store-brand puppy food and she had some pretty bad dandruff. I was most definitely a novice when it came to picking a good dog food so I started by going to a local pet store that only sold natural products. That’s where I discovered Canidae, specifically Canidae’s limited- ingredient, grain-free food. I went home and spent days researching every food available. I chose Canidae’s Pure Elements dog food.
In July my sister adopted a dog, Alvin. She was given little to no information on him from the shelter, including what food he was being fed. Poor Alvin was having the worst stomach problems and nothing was helping. After a week we started him on Sammie’s Canidae and within a few days Alvin’s stomach problems were practically gone.
So Sammie and Alvin would like to thank all of the people at Canidae for making such a fantastic product, and making them as healthy and happy as possible!
I can’t wait to see both dogs in the best shape possible

Hello, I have 2 chihuahua mix dogs. One is 7 yrs old, the other is about 2 yrs old. They were both adopted thru a local non kill shelter. The oldest was 19.5 pounds and the other 6.2 pounds. One looked like a beach ball with legs, the other was skin and bones. The thin one still had milk from breeding. I took them both to the veterinarian to check them out. I was told one is obese, the other was malnourished. After talking with several employees at Teresa’s in Simi valley I decided to try your product. The smaller dog has gained 2 pounds, and the larger dog has lost 3 pounds. They are both very active and are doing so well now. The smaller dog has leveled off and is eating less and the larger dog actually eats slower now. I can’t wait to see both dogs in the best shape possible.
Thank you very much.
We are a customer for life!

We rescued our German short haired pointer, Moose, when he was 1 1/2 years old. He was being fed your typical name brand grocery store food. We noticed he was biting his feet and nails a lot and sneezing more than usual. We pinpointed it that his food was causing this and the additives and bi products in those other products. So we switched to Under the Sun. Ever since his symptoms have reduced tremendously and he loves the food! I love knowing he is getting a nutritious meal without all those bi products and additives other brands put in. We are a customer for life!
Canidae is by far superior to all other dog foods out there on the market today.

I just wanted to let you know what AMAZING dog food you have. This is a bit long, but well worth the read, I promise.
We have an English Mastiff that is a year & a half old; so basically still a puppy as far as Mastiff’s go. I’ve done tons of research on all different kinds of dog food trying to find the absolute best we could possibly find, & one that he actually liked. We’ve been thru all the best rated brands out there & I’d tried Canidae wet food, but hadn’t bought the dry food yet b/c of the price & smaller size of the bags; not that we weren’t spending $50 every 2 weeks on a bag of food as it was, it was just a bigger lb. bag vs. the smaller lb. Canidae bag.
So I finally decided to try Canidae about a month & a half ago b/c he just wasn’t interested in his food really. He would go all day without eating, even though his food would be out in his bowl first thing in the morning….he wouldn’t eat until later at night like anywhere between 7 – 10pm. So I thought why not give it a shot & you guys had a coupon on the bag at the time & I’m a sucker for coupons haha.
I cannot even begin to tell you what a change this food has made in our dog!!!!!!!!!!! He’s practically eating the food as we’re scooping it into his bowl now….no more letting it sit around all day & then only eating it b/c he’s starving & there’s nothing better! But what makes your product so incredibly amazing to me & why I wanted to write, is the difference in his energy level & his attitude!!!! He’s like a completely different dog….or like the dog he was when he was a playful little puppy again!!!! It has given him so much energy! He literally bounces around the house now & wants to play ALL the time…..whereas before, he would just lay around most of the time & not have much interest in playing at all…..& he was content with just walking on his walks…..now he wants to RUN….he can’t wait to get out the door & start bounding down the street! It’s seriously the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen for a dog to change this much b/c of the food he’s eating.
He also had several bumps all over his mouth/jowls & under his chin, that started out as just a couple here & there, then started spreading. We took him to the vet & they couldn’t figure out what it was, they just kept saying he must have been bitten or stung by something. They just kept getting worse & worse & looked horrible….& of course we felt horrible b/c there was nothing we could do, we were at the mercy of what the vet told us & the solutions they gave us to try & clear them up….none of which worked, they only kept getting worse. I had started to suspect that maybe it had something to do with his dog food since it was all over his mouth & he sticks his whole face in his bowl when he eats, so that would make sense that it was possibly something in the food that was causing the bumps….so that was another reason I decided to try out Canidae, was to see if maybe there was something in the other dog foods we’d tried that he was allergic to or that was causing the bumps. Well guess what, once we switched him over to Canidae, the bumps slowly started disappearing….& are now completely cleared up & gone!!!!
I know not all dog foods are equal, trust me I’ve done my research….but I was foolishly under the impression that at least all higher quality dog foods must be equal…..I could not have been more WRONG!!! Canidae is by far superior to all other dog foods out there on the market today. I’d seriously challenge anyone to find a better dog food than your brand, b/c it won’t happen….our Jax is living proof. So I just wanted to say thank you thank you thank you THANK YOU for caring enough to make such a wonderful product & for making our big baby such a healthy, playful dog again!
Hahna, Mark & Jax 🙂
