I use Canidae dog food because I want the best nutrition for my dogs.
June 23, 2016
I just want to take a moment to say how pleased I am with Canidae and it’s products. I started using Canidae dry Dog foods after acquiring Rollie, a 4 month old Pit/Boxer mix from the local animal shelter. Rescue dogs are the best! I would never feed anything but the best food to my “family,” so after much research on dog nutrition I decided on Canidae because of its high (five star) ratings. I started feeding Rollie chicken based Canidae products but found that he’s a little intolerant to chicken which causes him to be a little “windy.” So I switched to the Salmon formula and all was well with him.
Then 7 months later, along came a companion for Rollie, cute little Daisy, a 4 month old Pit/Terrier mix, (and what a lover!) also from the same rescue shelter, so I started Daisy on Canidae’s All Stages formula and kept Rollie on the Salmon formula. Unfortunately Daisy had the same intolerance issue with chicken products, but on Beth Goodwin’s suggestion (Customer Service), I switched both of my “picky eaters” to the Lamb and Rice formula, and Voila! No more gastro-intestinal problems, and it’s easier to feed both dogs the same formula.
By the way, Beth was very kind, knowledgeable and most helpful in solving my problem. Usually you get good products or good customer service, but Canidae Customer Service is just as good as their products. I’ve been using Canidae for about 14 months now and both dogs seem to love it. I like to leave dry food in a dispenser for them all the time, and supplement that in the evening with 2 to 3 cups of Canidae dry dog food each and 8 to 10 oz of hot water, then stir to make a gravy. They lap it right up and there’s never anything left in their bowl. They don’t over-eat, and neither dog has any weight or coat issues.
I use Canidae dog food because I want the best nutrition for my dogs, and they are both alert, happy, healthy and very playful as a result of the care Canidae has taken to provide such a great product. You can buy less expensive dog food, but you get what you pay for. With Canidae I know I’m giving my dogs the proper nutrition they need to live long and healthy lives.
My little scruffy dog finally has an amazing food with everything we wanted for his tummy.
June 23, 2016
My dog Augie Doggie is a double Merle Aussie and we had extreme difficulty finding foods that would not irritate his sensitive stomach. We spent $100 switching foods. I was advised by a Petco associate to try Canidae Pure. I noticed right away the different flavors all consisting of limited ingredients and this made me extremely happy. I could choose from lamb, fish, chicken, boar etc. My little scruffy dog finally has an amazing food with everything we wanted for his tummy.
We thank you.

Thank you … that is all I can say right now. My family and I laid to rest our best friend last week. Dinga was a 13 year 9 month old yellow Labrador that lived on All Life Stages for 13.5 of those years. As I was looking through pictures and other things, I came across the box of upc symbols I had saved over the years which made me realize something. I wholeheartedly believe that the love he received from his family combined with your dry dog food is what enabled him to live such a long, happy and meaningful life. When the time comes that we are ready to get another dog, we will be feeding him/her All Life Stages. Thank you again for giving us all those years of laughter and joy that Dinga provided!
Thank you so much Canidae for continuing to make safe and wholesome food

After 12 years of feeding my two miniature Schnauzers a low grade (not using brand names) type of dog food, my 13 year old male became deathly sick. I felt that I was going to lose him. Upon hours and hours of research on his symptoms, I found that it was the dog food that had him at deaths door. Once I got him feeling better a few weeks later I began giving them Canidae Life stages for seniors. Years of feeding this brand, both of my darlings are healthier and full of energy. Thank you so much Canidae for continuing to make safe and wholesome food that my darlings can continue to live a healthy and active life even in their elder years.

I want to thank you for taking such great care of my son Brutis. He is our Diabetic Alert Dog. He is a 5 year old Lab that is my 15 year old daughter’s best friend and literally her lifesaver. He goes everywhere Quinn does. To school, the tennis court, the stables, everywhere she or the family goes. I honestly think of him as my son. Brutis uses smell to help keep Quinn’s blood glucose numbers where they need to be. When they are not appropriate, he alerts. When she is sleeping he comes and wakes up her father or myself. He has prevented her from dangerous episodes numerous times.
Making sure Brutis is healthy so he can take care of Quinn is a top priority–thus we only feed him Canidae. We did much research and spoke with our trainers, vets and others involved with Brutis to be sure we are doing everything we can to keep him the healthiest and happiest. Thanks for offering your product and being part of our team!!

We feed our Havanese Canidae Grain Free Pure Land, with Bison. The dogs enjoy it and it has helped them maintain beautiful coats and excellent health.
Hendrix is my wife’s Grand Champion Havanese. He is a multi-group winner, and the pictures attached are from 2014 when he won the Toy Group two days running at the June AKC sanctioned shows in Anchorage, AK.
Our dog and cat both love Canidae Pure Lamb food
June 7, 2016
He’s not the only one though, our domestic shorthair cat, Blue also loves the lamb dog food he actually prefers it to his cat food which unfortunately is not Canidae, he’s tried it, and prefers going back to the corn based junk food “meow” brand, however, lately, given a choice between Meow and Canidae Pure Lamb, he goes to the Canidae, perhaps it’s time to try the Pure for cats again….
The biggest problem with feeding Blue outside (he’s an indoor/outdoor cat, a barn and house cat) is that he is not the only animal that loves the lamb dog food, blue has to compete against my small flock of backyard free range chickens, the instant the chickens here the Canidae food hit the bowl they race over from the barn, and immediately crowd Blue out, Yes you read that right, Blue actually gets run off his food by a flock of chickens, He’s not the bravest cat but he still very affectionate cat, he actually acts more like a dog but a cat, and no that’s not after I fed him the dog food he’s always been that way.
So in addition to dogs, Canidae dog food is also loved by our house cat and a flock of free range chickens , Perhaps you should consider making poultry feed with the same high standards that you make for your dog and cat food I know my chickens would absolutely love it.
He’s a happy allergy free dog.

Hi!! I’ve been a lover and advocate for animals since I was little, with setting up my lemon aid stand for saving the whales. My newest Foster “Archie” was, as I told my husband a sad challenge. He was scheduled to be put down at a shelter about 100 miles from my home, with 3 other dogs. I went to go pick them all up for our rescue. I promised my husband I’d find a great home for him. After all we already had plenty animals.
When I picked him up you couldn’t even see a dog under all the dirt, mats and stench. He screamed the whole ride home and I needed the windows down due to the smell. He was deaf, due to his ears not being attended to, a senior animal that no one took care of and his skin was bright red after he had to be shaved down. The poor thing had horrible allergies and didn’t even know what to do with kibble. I couldn’t get him to eat anything. He had been abandoned in a cemetery when the city picked him up. His eyes swollen and tar like goo filled them. He tried to attack me when I put drops in his ears that were closed… All due to neglect and allergies. I started with my vets guidance. She wanted him muzzled when we treated him. I just couldn’t see it so I wrapped him in a blanket and slowly he started to trust me.
Now, thanks to your grain free food and slowly with care, he’s a happy allergy free dog. The allergies were making him insane. What a difference. He gladly gave up his need for wet food. His hearing has returned now that the swelling has gone down. He can see and his skin has returned to normal.
Did I find him a perfect home? Yes I did, right here with us. No one saw past all his issues and the time it took to get him there, but we did. That old sad sickly dog is now Benjamin Button, he runs around healthy, peppy and happy. The right care and grain free food makes the world of difference! Thank you!
His coat is absolutely gorgeous
June 5, 2016
I’ve had my pointer on Pure Elements for about a year now, and his coat is absolutely gorgeous. He is an AKC Grand Champion and this kibble keeps him in top condition both in the ring and in the field.
I look forward to seeing his overall health/appearance continue to improve.

I met my German Shepard mix Link a year ago when a neighbor offered him to me. He was skinny, rough coat, and flaking. Along with Link, I was given a bag of very cheap dog food. Basically cardboard. I didn’t know better as this is my first dog and continued to feed this to him for months. Recently, I took Link to obedience training. Seeing the difference in our relationship just based on that one step made me want to do even more for him. I researched dog foods, picked brains of friends, and finally spoke to a very helpful associate at Petco.
After much deliberation, Canidae was the winner. I bought a small bag to test the waters and followed instructions from the associate on how to best acclimate Link to his new food. It’s been one month since that time and I can’t believe the changes I’ve seen! His coat is more beautifully colored and soft, his flaking and dandruff have subsided, and he’s gained the proper amount of weight to be considered healthy. He loves his food. Today I bought his first large bag and look forward to trying new flavors for him. I look forward to seeing his overall health/appearance continue to improve. Thank you so much Canidae!
