I went to the CANIDAE Lamb & Rice — what a great food


2010-02-03I just wanted to let you know the CANIDAE Lamb & Rice dog food is great! I was giving [another brand of] dog food and decided to try a less expensive food to save on money, but one still within the lamb food family. Well, one bag of the other food and my Corgi Zeta was losing hair. The hair also changed color to a lighter red and seemed to dry out. So I went to the CANIDAE Lamb & Rice — what a great food. Within two weeks she stopped shedding, the color came back and her hair feels like you put conditioner on it. I would recommend this food to everyone.

The perfect flavor for my Schnauzer’s finicky taste buds

2/4/2010 - 2010-02-04I just wanted to say Thank You! I have been going through every premium dog food on the market for almost the past year since our Mini Schnauzer came here. He likes nothing for any longer than a week at a time before I am out looking for that perfect food! Thanks to CANIDAE I have found it.

He, with my other four dogs, are on the second 44 pound bag of CANIDAE All Life Stages and getting ready to start the third one! Hurray for who ever created just the perfect flavor for my Schnauzer’s finicky taste buds! My other dogs are herders… need I say more?

I always go the natural holistic route, and the taste of the food you have developed is so perfect…. I just can’t thank you enough! No need to look any more!!

They have beautiful coats and are always up for runs and for fun


2010-02-15Attached is a photo from our family’s vacation at the Hyatt Newporter — a pet friendly hotel in Newport Beach, California. Our family maintains active and healthy lifestyles through diet and exercise. Why would we do anything less for our precious pups? Our Pekinese, Lucy (pictured left) is a 3 year old puppy with TONS of energy. Our 6 year old Shih Tzu, Chief, is as healthy and happy as the day he was came home with us. Both pups have been raised on your products and enjoy active and healthy lives along with their VERY busy 6 year old human brother, Cort (pictured). They have beautiful coats and are always up for runs and for fun. 

Thank you CANIDAE for making a healthy, wholesome and delicious staple to our pups’ diet. Our dogs enjoy every variety of the dry and are treated to the wet foods from time to time! Dogma is our home store where the staff/owners are fabulous with advice, treats, and samples; however, Laguna Feed really got us started many years ago with samples.

We have lots of great photos, but while the dogs are the obvious fans — our family wouldn’t be the same without our healthy, happy dogs… so CANIDAE makes for a happy family overall!

Blessings & Peace be with CANIDAE!
Anne, Deron, Cort, Lucy Lovebug, & the Chief

I have found my favorite, CANIDAE

2010-02-22I’m Buffy, and my adoptive humans are Laura and Jason. Laura and Jason moved into a condo and started looking for a dog to share their home and love with. They searched shelters online until they found where I was staying and came for a visit. Jason instantly found my face among the other dogs and told the volunteers they wanted to see Buffy. I had been through this before over the 9 months I lived in the shelter, people come, they look and leave with a younger dog. I must have made an impression with my good looks and personality because the following day Jason came to pick me up and take me home. My life has changed a lot since my adoption two years ago, I’ve made some furry friends (both cats and dogs), played in the snow, tried swimming, learned some tricks and tried quite a few brands of dog food. I think my humans and I have found my favorite, CANIDAE, recommended from a knowledgeable friend. You know those dog food commercials that say their food will add two years to a dog’s life? Well Jason says I’m going to live forever because my food is so much better.

Woof Woof,
Buffy

He is very healthy and maintains his weight very well

2/26/2010 - 2010-02-26Our yellow Lab, Mac, just turned two years old. We have been feeding him CANIDAE All Life Stages since he was born. Between mealtimes, we give him CANIDAE Snap Biscuits.

I can see that Mac loves the food. He is very healthy and maintains his weight very well which we attribute to CANIDAE and plenty of exercise. We have noticed with this food that his stool is solid and shows no signs of the inconsistency we experienced when feeding our previous Lab the big box store brands.

The products may be a bit more money, but the cost savings from fewer visits to the vet more than offset this.

Thank you,

CANIDAE is the best dog food hands down

2010-03-02a3/2/2010 - You guys have awesome dog food and customer service! I have two American Pitbull Terriers that look absolutely amazing. It is definitely in their genetics to look awesome (they are UKC purple ribbon registered) but CANIDAE has helped them reach their potential.

I have a female that will be a grand champion one day. I am looking for a sponsor so I can promote my dogs and show people how awesome a breed these dogs are.

2010-03-02bI want to show everyone American Pit Bulls Terriers aren’t monsters and that CANIDAE is the best dog food hands down!

I am glad I finally found a food Aspen will eat

2010-03-04a3/4/2010 - I finally found a food my puppy will eat, CANIDAE All Life Stages. I would like to try some other formulas of CANIDAE for variety for my dog. Do you know how I can get some free samples of the other CANIDAE Dog Foods?

I am glad I finally found a food Aspen will eat. We tried over 15 different varieties! I even found a dog trainer that made his own kibble, but he wouldn’t eat that either.

2010-03-04bHe came to me at five months on [another brand], first ingredient corn meal, fifth ingredient sugar! UGHH.

Here is my beautiful growing boy! Now he looks great!

Gilmour is 15 years old and has never visited a vet in his lifetime

2010-03-083/8/2010 - I am writing to tell you how much our dog Gilmour (named after hockey player Doug Gilmour) loves CANIDAE All Life Stages dog food. Gilmour is 15 years old and has never visited a vet in his lifetime. He is a very obedient, good-natured dog who is loved by everyone he greets.

We tell everyone about CANIDAE dog food. We feel that CANIDAE dog food is the reason he is a healthy fifteen year old dog today. Mind you, he is getting slower at getting up and down, but he can still run when outdoors. We live on a farm so he has lots of freedom, but has never traveled off our property. We felt we had to contact you about your great product! We will continue to purchase CANIDAE — we hope for many more years for Gilmour. Thank you for taking time to read my message. Regards from Canada!

She took to CANIDAE right away and has had a great appetite

2010-03-123/12/2010 - This is Sadie, about a two and half year old rescue. Her bio says she is a mix of Beagle and Jack Russell. We live in upstate New York and she came to us all they way from Arkansas from Paws and Claws rescue by way of pet transport this past June. We were so excited to get her! My 10 year old was especially thrilled to get a new dog and did a lot of research with me and learned all about proper training so he could help.

Sadie has been a great fit for our family. A good friend of mine recommended CANIDAE after Sadie was rejecting the other type of food we started her on. She took to CANIDAE right away and has had a great appetite ever since. I never have to worry about her not eating.

She joins me to go to the store to get her CANIDAE pet food (it is an Agway that allows dogs). She is also helping me improve my health as we walk 30 minutes each day. The photo I am sending in is from her very first hours at her new home. I just love the photo as she seems to be smiling and her heart tag is showing like she too knew that she had found her “forever” home.

Until I found CANIDAE she never ate dry food out of a bowl

2010-03-173/17/2010 - Stinker [pictured] and Daisy are CANIDAE Dogs. Daisy is our 6 year old Australian Cattle Dog mix. We adopted her nearly 6 years ago from our local shelter. Stinker is our hodge podge dog. We found him on the streets a little over a year ago. Stinker had been abused and has been to the vet several times due to a limp in his right front shoulder most likely caused by being hit by a car. This is no lie, within two months of being fed CANIDAE Lamb and Rice formula, the limp is gone. He runs like the wind and hasn’t limped in almost a year. Daisy, like I said, is almost 6 years old. She has the personality of a puppy thanks to CANIDAE. I can really see the difference in her energy level, the amount she sheds, and her overall well-being after being on CANIDAE foods.

I feed the Lamb and Rice formula because Daisy is super finicky. She will not eat anything with beef in it. In fact, until I found CANIDAE she NEVER ate dry food out of a bowl. It always had to be mixed with cheese, broth or wet food. CANIDAE Lamb and Rice is the only food she will eat straight from the bowl.

I’ve been using CANIDAE for over a year now. You guys have a great product and I am proud to support a company that believes in family, fun, pets and overall good health.

Thank you so much for making a food that tastes so good

2010-03-23b3/23/2010 - Hello CANIDAE! Two and a half years ago my husband and I adopted a dog from the Friends of Falmouth Dogs in Falmouth, MA (wonderful people!!!!).

We all three fell in love right away. For a while we were feeding him another brand of dog food and he began to gain weight. We’ve had a terrible experience in the past of having to put our baby down because of extra weight — his back legs went out on him. We did not want that to happen to our new dog Colonel Hogan!

2010-03-23aSo, asking the vet and the pet food store they recommended CANIDAE Grain Free so we started him on that supplementing it with green beans and we also give him baby carrots for treats.

He LOVES your food!!! When I buy a new bag I let him help himself only while I pour it into his container. You should see him try to get as much as he can in that few seconds… his cheeks look like a squirrel! It’s so funny!

Thank you so much for making a food that tastes so good and is so good for our baby! Attached are a few pictures of him at dinner time!

Thank you so much for making such great food

2010-03-253/25/2010 - Zander is a 2.5 year old Shiloh Shepherd. Zander is a very special boy. He was born with megaesophagus disorder. Until Zander was about 12 months old he was on a very special blended soft diet. My other 2 Shilohs and mixed breed had been eating CANIDAE for sometime. I decided it was time to see how Zander would do on CANIDAE.

Since CANIDAE has no fillers and no grains, and my other dogs were doing so well on this food I switched Zander over to it. He still eats his food from a raised postions and his food is still soaked. So 1.5 years later Zander is thriving. He has a beautiful coat and perfect weight. He has been in SAR training for 9 months. We were previously training independently. And we are hoping to join the Butler County K-9 SAR in the late spring. He is also near completion of his Rarities, NKC and NSBR, and Breed Championships. I have two other Shilohs TD bCH, SSS CJ’s Thor of Thunder Shilohs CGC, TTI, NKC, CB, EH3 & EW2 aka Thor, and NS TD bCH Kiah Looking Towards The Horizon CGC, TDI, TTI, EH3 & EW2 aka Kiah that have been eating CANIDAE most of their showing careers. No doubt CANIDAE has contributed to their health and beautiful coats.
