Dog Food Reviews
Thriving on CANIDAE
8/12/2013 - Priscilla, my 4 1/2 year old rescue from Tennessee, was adopted in 2009. Soon after arriving at her new home in Dorchester, Massachusetts, my girl was transitioned to Canidae dog food and I could not be more pleased with the results. Her rotational diet has consisted of Grain Free pure Elements, Grain Free pure Sky and Single Grain Protein Plus, all three supplying the nutrition that gives her boundless energy as well as promoting a beautiful, lustrous coat. Also, she loves Snap-Biscuits, Snap-Bits and Tidnips. Needless to say, Priscilla has thrived on Canidae products which, in my opinion, have contributed greatly to her being a happy and healthy dog.
Aela’s New, Healthy Coat
8/11/2013 - I have previously given a review of Canidae food in regards to my dog, Huckleberry who has skin issues. I now need to give a rave review in regards to my other dog, Aela. Aela has the same parents as Huckleberry. hey are just from different litter. Both of them are Australian shepherd/golden retriever, and boxer mix. While Huckleberry has the long fur like a Golden Retriever, Aela’s is thicker , but shorter hair. Her hair always felt more course where Huckleberry’s was soft. I thought there was no changing that. After feeding her the Canidae lamb and rice, I am amazed how soft she is. The skin conditioners in this food is amazing.
A Happy CANIDAE Family
8/7/2013 – After years of spending excessive amounts of money to satisfy our three dogs and their very different needs in terms of their food (Annie, the Wheaten Terrier cannot have grain or high protein diets like salmon; Moose, the French Bulldog cannot have salmon either but also needs a kibble small enough to fit his smaller mouth; and Jake, the Pit Bull cannot have anything with poultry), we are so happy to report that we have found the one food that caters to all of their needs: Canidae Pure Sky. In addition to having to accommodate all of the aforementioned needs, we also make it a point to only give our dogs top-of-the-line nutrition (our way of thinking- it is better to
spend a little more money per bag for higher quality than to pay it in dividends in the way of Vet bills due to poor nutrition and ingredients) and Canidae comes as highly recommended by Vets and Pet Food Advisors as any brand out there. And, as if all of this wasn’t enough- it is certainly worth mentioning how much our three dogs love this food. They get so excited when it is dinner time and given how much we have struggled in the past to meet their needs and wants in their food; this has been just wonderful. We are Canidae customers for life!
Molly is the sweetest and most lovable bullmastiff you’ll ever meet
4/4/2013 - Molly is a “long-haired” bullmastiff due to a double recessive gene causing longhair. Molly’s from a line of champion bullmastiffs (on both sides). She is considered undesirable by breeders and the AKC standard.
Molly has been eating CANIDAE since day one. Molly has an incredible soft (to the touch) coat – a result from one of the great benefits of choosing CANIDAE (Grain Free – pureELEMENTS). I personally would like to shed some light onto “long-haired” bullmastiffs. Long-haired bullmastiffs are absolutely just as wonderful as their AKC standard. Many breeders who produce this coat either put the puppy to sleep or hide it, which is silly, since no one tries to produce this coat. The puppy is a Bullmastiff in every sense, however has an undesirable coat for breeding or showing, therefore breeders try not to produce them. Long-haired bullmastiffs shouldn’t be “feared” and unspoken by breeders.
Molly is the sweetest and most lovable bullmastiff you’ll ever meet. Molly weighs 60lbs at six months and her body structure (minus coat) is show worthy. Thank you, CANIDAE, for making a superior product and helping to keep Molly healthy, coat and all. She certainly has become desirable in the hearts of everyone she encounters.
She is such a sweet loving dog
3/24/2013 - Mid January, I took my elderly parents dog, Molly, to the vet (a duck toller they rescued from dog control/certain death, approximately seven years ago) and she was diagnosed with Cushings Disease and end stage Diabetes. January 19, the decision was made that she would have to be put to sleep. My parents are both in their mid eighties, and were devastated. The first week of February, they were still completely lost, and asked me to find them an adult rescue dog. So, I called around to all the local rescues and then it occurred to me to call the same dog control office that I had found Molly at all those years ago. The guy had retired, but the new officer referred me to the vets office where I had Molly put to sleep. The wonderful receptionist there told me about Holly, a lovely shepherd mix that was being boarded there. Holly’s owner had passed away January 22, from a third bout with cancer, and her owners best friend had promised her on her death bed that she would find a good home for Holly. No one was able to keep her, so she had been boarded at the vets in a kennel since the 22nd. She was literally starving herself to death, she wouldn’t eat and was scared beyond belief. So, on February 5, my husband and I went to the vet to meet her. We were told she was nervous, of men especially, but we fell in love with her right away, and although she was scared, she made friends with us. So, we put her seatbelt on her and drove the hour home. When we took her to my parents, she immediately became a velcro dog for my dad, she doesn’t leave his side, and she’s very friendly with my mom. If anyone else comes to the house, she runs and hides, but she’s starting to do better. Holly has been eating CANIDAE All Life Stages Formula. It’ll be a month on Tuesday since we got her, and she’s gained enough weight that you can no longer feel her backbone sticking out, her dry coat has improved, she’s full of life, and loves to run and play, a completely different dog. Best of all, she loves to sit really close and snuggle! She was just the perfect dog at the perfect time for my folks, They needed her almost as much as she needed them. Odd coincidence that her name was Holly, they often call her Molly, but she doesn’t seem to mind.
He is transformed into a terrific dog
1/29/2013 - Meet Maverick! He was terribly neglected in a small muddy pen (basically a prison) when we took him in. He was scrawny and had a dull coarse coat. After 4 months on CANIDAE (plus fresh eggs from our chickens) he is transformed into a terrific dog and now looks like a proper Black Lab. I also have a 13 year old Lab and a 5 year old German Shepherd. All three dogs thrive on CANIDAE Lamb and Rice.
No more skin problems, and no more gas!
12/29/12 - My 3 dogs love, love, love CANIDAE and I have had great results with it. They are now eating CANIDAE Platinum and doing great. We have been feeding CANIDAE for nearly a year now and the results have been outstanding. The picky eaters love eating every day, no more skin problems, and no more gas! These products are outstanding.I would recommend CANIDAE to any owner, any breed.
Rylee – 10 year old Corgi with skin allergies, dramatically improved by CANIDAE.
Spur – 6 year old Blue Heeler, very active farm dog. He was experiencing gas and even had some kidney infections – all completely gone since using CANIDAE.
Tucker – 3 year old Mini Schnauzer, a picky eater and also experiencing gas on other dog foods. He gobbles up CANIDAE and has been gas free!
CANIDAE ALS produces the most consistent results
12/26/12 - We want to thank you for making a quality product that all five of our dogs thrive on. We’ve tried many super premium brands, but CANIDAE ALS produces the most consistent results: glossy soft coats, nice muscling and vitality, great energy levels, and high palatability. And all in a conveniently sized 44 lb. bag that works wonderfully for multiple dog households. Our pack of five thanks you and woofs to you “please keep up the good work!”
Our family loves your products!
12/22/12 - I just wanted to let you know how much our family loves your products! We have a very picky poodle who was a little bit underweight because he was so particular about food. A few months ago, we adopted a second poodle, and quickly learned she was allergic to grains. We tried a few brands, but neither dog liked them. We finally found CANIDAE pureELEMENTS and it clicked! Both dogs love it, and have gained a healthy amount of weight. I’m so relieved to have found a food they both like that is high quality. Thank you so much!
Marritt B…and Tucker and Lily, the picky poodles!

Thank you for making such a great product!
12/17/12 - Annabelle, my 3.5 lb Yorkie, has always eaten CANIDAE. She seemed to do well on it, but I had a few doubts about how important it was for her. We were gone a month and ran out of her food, so I bought the “top of the line” grocery store food. I noticed that her hair was shedding and you could even see her skin. I thought she was sick, although she had just as much energy. Within two weeks back on CANIDAE, her coat is beautiful. I never would have believed her food was so important! I didn’t notice much difference in her “sister,” an 85 lb Briard. I guess the size difference showed up more rapidly because of Annabelle’s weight. You can bet we’ll never run out of CANIDAE again. Thank you for making such a great product!
I’m here for the long haul and will use your products on all my pets
12/12/12 - I originally contacted CANDIAE to ask how their food compared to another advertised name brand food. I was so pleased to find out that CANIDAE is a far superior product and I really didn’t want to switch, but was really curious about their claims. We are really happy with our two boxers, Sandy and Rocky, with their health on your food. Our Vet is also very pleased with our dogs and she has said they are amazing with respect to the physical condition, lack of fat, and clarity in their eyes, etc. This is no coincidence with the great quality food you provide, coupled with our dedication to give them regular exercise and a comfortable, loving home. No fear – I’m here for the long haul and will use your products on all my pets – present and future – because I can’t live without them.

It’s the only food they all do well on, and all love to eat!
10/30/12 - CANIDAE is all we feed our dogs, except fruits and vegetables. I have tried many, many foods over the last 25 years and it’s the only food they all do well on, and all love to eat. From puppies to seniors, they all love CANIDAE! We recommend it to everyone we meet; we even stop people in the grocery store and educate them on dog food and ingredients and recommend that they check out CANIDAE. Yeah, we get some weird looks, but maybe it will put a bug in their ear and they will rethink what they are feeding.
