Jax loves his Canidae food

jax April 5, 2014 

Jax is a healthy black lab male a little over 3 and half years and weighing in at about 80 pounds. He’s very affectionate and loves his CANIDAE food! He enjoys playing with dogs and people of all ages, loves tennis balls and footballs, and has named stuffed animals. He’s been fed CANIDAE since he was a puppy and has a very healthy, shiny coat. We chose CANIDAE for its ingredients and the fact that it was a grain free food for all life stages. Jax does however enjoy breaking in to tennis courts. If he sees people playing, he’s figured out how to open the gates and if you are not paying close attention, there’s a good chance he may join in on the game – he’s never been taught the rules of how many on a court! LOL. I could go on about a few of the silly stories over the years: missing loaves of bread and muffins (and how he removes them from the house comes back in and waits to feast) or the candy bar neatly removed from a gift bag for my Mom’s birthday or a box of his favorite sleepy-time tea found in his dog crate…. but why ruin his reputation? He looks like he’s never done anything wrong…oh…he loves the water and has become quite the boater – watching him soar off the side of the boat and go under water is a treat. That’s my Jax! Enjoy!

Canidae has been life-changing!

April 2, 2014

Let me be clear, CANIDAE dog food has not been “good”, it has been down right life-changing!  Our 10 month old chocolate lab, Reagan, has not only been a picky eater, but has an oddly sensitive stomach, making feeding time stressful. Finding a dog food that he likes and doesn’t give him an upset stomach has been a frustrating challenge since he first entered our lives. We had always heard good things about CANIDAE from our dog loving friends and decided to give it a try. We were ecstatic to find that CANIDAE was what we’ve been looking for this whole time! It’s healthy, tasty, and we know that “Chunky Monkey” will only be a nickname as long as we feed him CANIDAE. We are truly grateful to CANIDAE for giving us the peace of mind and making his life so much better!

CANIDAE is one fantastic brand. My 3 year young dog has food allergies. We tried numerous foods ( including prescription dog food) & after a few months they seemed to upset her system.
We switched to CANIDAE Grain Free PURE Land last year on recommendation of my Veterinarian and have been so pleased with the results. She loves CANIDAE and has not had any allergic reactions what so ever. One very happy dog guardian here!

Canidae is the only food I recommend!

This is Colby. He’s our 9 month old, American Bulldog. The CANIDAE All Life Stages Lamb formula has done wonders for his GI tract. He had a salmonella infection at 9 weeks and has had a very sensitive stomach ever since. This is the only natural food that has agreed with him. CANIDAE is the only food I recommend. Thank you.

I’ve been recommending it to all my dog-owner friends!


March 6, 2014 Just writing to say, I have a VERY sensitive English Bulldog. I’ve tried food after food since she was a puppy, from Blue Buffalo to Wellness, and she has ALWAYS had, well, “issues” when it comes to bathroom time, as well as other allergies irritating her eyes and skin.

I recently saw my local pet store carrying the CANIDAE PURE line of foods and tried out the CANIDAE Grain Free PURE Sky. I bought a small bag at first as I’m so used to having to return them and try something else.

Imagine my surprise when in a couple weeks of being on the food, almost every issue she had from allergies/puffy eyes/runny poop VANISHED! And she really looks forward to eating it too! I’m tempted to try out the other kinds, but I just went back and bought a big bag of the CANIDAE Grain Free PURE Sky because I can’t believe it worked. Halfway through it and she’s still doing great, I’ve been recommending it to all my dog-owner friends now!

So just thanks for making a quality food that actually works for my puppies needs! It’s such a relief to know I’m feeding her something daily that works for her now.

Darla says thanks as well! I’ll be a lifelong CANIDAE buyer now as long as this product exists!

His skin has completely cleared up!

dukeMarch 4, 2014

We have been so pleased since switching our dog over to CANIDAE!! Our dog, Duke, started off eating one of the big name dog food brands during the first few years of his life until he started having an allergic skin reaction. With help from our vet, we narrowed it down to him having some sort of food allergy. After switching to a “pure” version of a different brand and not seeing a difference, we were suspicious it was a food allergy. We decided to contact Duke’s breeder, who suggested we try CANIDAE. We could not be more grateful!! His skin has completely cleared up and we’ve seen a huge difference in how excited he is when it comes to meal time.

Both pups are full of energy with happy tummies!

2/25/2014 I appreciate what CANIDAE is doing for the dog community by providing a quality dog food that is safe and good for the pups. After adopting a second Doberman, it was priority for me to find a food that I could feed both of my dogs without having to feed two separate foods.

Finding a food that one dog did well on turned into the other dog not doing well or not liking the other. I finally found CANIDAE All Life Stages and my dogs have been on it ever since with great results! My 7 year old doberboy went down to a very healthy 93 lbs and my year and a half old dobergirl gained weight up to 82 lbs.

Now both of the pups are full of energy with happy tummies! Thank you CANIDAE!

Thank you for helping me keep my dog healthy!

I have an 8 year old Labrador. She broke her tibia as a pup. I choose CANIDAE Platinum to give her the nutrition but keep her weight down. She does well on it and she is a healthy dog . I am sold on this formula for her.

Thank you for helping me keep my dog healthy.



Soft shiny skin & coat


I just transitioned my dog over to CANIDAE Grain Free PURE and he’s doing fantastic, soft shiny skin and coat, his ears cleared up and he looks fantastic. Fortunately there are still a few companies left with quality dog food. I did lots of research based on recalls, quality of product, etc. and chose CANIDAE and I am so glad I did!! I feel it’s the best quality food available presently!


An abundance of energy & alertness!

Karma2/17/2014  I fed CANIDAE All Life Stages to our Dobermans for YEARS. Our last two died 2 years ago and we began raising and showing Toy Fox Terriers. Thinking the kibble size was going to be too large for their little mouths, I stupidly switched to a different brand of small bites food. They did ok….but I always wanted to go back CANIDAE All Life Stages. 

FAST FORWARD to recently and we acquired a gorgeous Doberman puppy who has been fed ProPlan Focus Puppy since weaning. I read the label on the bag and nearly fainted. ARGH.
So….. with heart in hand, we began the changeover back to CANIDAE All Life Stages.…..for everyone: one Doberman and 7 Toy Fox Terriers. In ONE week, our Dobe puppy girl has NOTICEABLY less frequent stools, they are firmer, she has an abundance of energy and her alertness has improved. OH….AND SHE LIKE THE TASTE OF All Life Stges! She is not wolfing her food down like today is half gone and tomorrow is never going to come. She’s actually CHEWING her food, and looks to be savoring it. SO ARE THE LITTLE DOGS!!
Thanks CANIDAE…..glad to be back home with ya! And here we’ll stay….Doberman AND Toy Fox Terriers…….who have proved to me they CAN do the larger size kibble….and lovin’ it!
