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.

Misty and Buster Brown are healthy, energetic, and ready for our daily adventures

2010-04-014/1/2010 - Our Weimaraner has digestive issues and it was a struggle to find a dog food that she could tolerate – CANIDAE to the rescue! We travel throughout the states and are pleased to be able to locate stores that sell the product, through your website.

Misty (female Weimaraner) and Buster Brown (male German Shepherd) are healthy, energetic, and ready for our daily adventures in the woods – thanks in large part to CANIDAE. Their coats shine and their eyes sparkle!

We love CANIDAE and have since 1999

2010-04-054/5/2010 - Here’s one of our babies!  We love CANIDAE and have since 1999. Now we feed the Grain Free ALS and all three breeds look fantastic.

This is Moose aka BlackStars’ The Ice Man. He’s our pride and joy and my daughter’s best friend. The temperament of the Bernese is amazing and he has some big paws to fill as his mother lives here too along with several aunts, uncles, and cousins. Moose was an only-pup litter and has been our “little bear” ever since!

I took this photo myself and it’s my all-time favorite.

Thank you again!

CANIDAE Platinum keeps her spiffy and helps keep her weight down

2010-04-064/6/2010 - What can I say but that they’re really healthy and happy? Ghost — the white one, obviously — is allergic to everything under the sun but CANIDAE Lamb and Rice mixed half and half with CANIDAE Platinum keeps her spiffy and helps keep her weight down.

She’d eat everything under the sun and end up chubby, but the CANIDAE mix and some joint supplements have this hip dysplasia-afflicted dog, who once yelped every time she took a step heading upstairs, jumping OVER Goblin’s back at feeding time — and he’s three inches taller than her!

Thanks!

She runs right to her bowl and goes to town

2010-04-134/13/2010 - This is Tundra our 9 year old female who has a little bit of every breed in her I think. She is one of the best dogs a family could ask for! We were so glad to find CANIDAE food because she is a very picky eater and would not eat any type of dog food for long periods of time.

Once we found CANIDAE she eats a good full bowl of food a day and is very happy with it. She doesn’t put her nose up in the air when I give it to her. She runs right to her bowl and goes to town eating her dinner. So thanks for the awesome dog food!!

I would NEVER give my Kali or Gingerbread anything but CANIDAE

2010-04-204/20/2010 - About three years ago when I rescued my then 3 year old female Newfoundland, I wanted to make sure I was giving her the best food that I could. My veterinarian wanted her to loose a few pounds and put her on [a different brand of] dry food. She hated it! I did some research and spoke with a large network of Newfoundland owners who swear by CANIDAE. They suggested CANIDAE PLATINUM to help “Kali” get those extra pounds off. Well, she lost 6 pounds and absolutely loves the dry food. Not only does she love it, but my newest rescue, just under a year old, is “Gingerbread” — a 90 pound flat coated retriever who will ONLY eat CANIDAE Platinum.

I always read what other people have to say about a product. It’s “word of mouth” in my opinion that makes the difference. Had my friends never mentioned CANIDAE, I would have never known what a healthy product it was. Whenever I am engaged in a conversation with a fellow pet owner, I somehow always ask what food they feed their animal. When they tell me, I am compelled to tell them about all the nasty by-products they are feeding them, and how I would NEVER give my Kali or Gingerbread anything but CANIDAE. I swear by it and would never think of giving my babies anything but the best.

Thank you for getting back to me and thank you for making a truly healthy product for my girls. (It’s one less thing I have to worry about!)

Thanks for making our little orphan healthy

2010-04-264/26/2010 - This is Lucca! She had been abandoned at a truck stop near Missoula, Montana and we adopted her from Animal Control. We think she’s an American Labrador Retriever because she’s slighter in build, but she is all Lab when it comes to playing, running and swimming! This is her at the beach in Oregon on her first long road trip. Her sweet face, long whiskers and shiny CANIDAE coat remind us of a seal, so that’s her nickname!

Thanks for making our little orphan a healthy and full-of-life part of our family!

Sincerely,
Sharon and Rob W

Their coats are beautiful and shiny

2010-04-28a4/28/2010 - Just your faithful CANIDAE customer writing again asking for more coupons for your exceptional dog food!

I love, or should I say my dogs love your food and do really well on it. People ask me what I feed them because their coats are beautiful and shiny and I always proudly proclaim “CANIDAE“!!!

Now we’re a complete CANIDAE and FELIDAE feeding household!

2010-05-03a5/3/2010 - We started using CANIDAE after a bad experience with another brand. They always seemed to have runny stools that never improved, and they were turning their noses up at this other ”super-premium” food. We did some research online and found CANIDAE. I was excited about it because it had no corn in it, and the price was reasonable, and it also supported our local pet stores rather than the big corporations! I emailed CANIDAE for some samples to make sure the dogs liked it (with 5 dogs you’re almost guaranteed someone won’t like a food), and they devoured them. I think they thought the food was a treat! So we went out and bought CANIDAE All Life Stages right away, and the dogs simply LOVE it. They even picked the CANIDAE out of their bowls when we were mixing the old and new food together. Even our older, pickier dogs picked out the CANIDAE to eat. Just recently I decided to try the Chicken and Rice version, and they loved it as well. I think it’s great CANIDAE offers a few different flavors that I can rotate so they can have some variety in their diet while still eating a great nutritional food.
 
2010-05-03bWe also have two cats, and decided that since the dogs were on CANIDAE, that we might as well try FELIDAE. They, just like the dogs, picked their FELIDAE kibble out of the bowl and left their old food. They made that decision easy for us :) So now we’re a complete CANIDAE and FELIDAE-feeding household! We even buy the Snap-Bits and Snap-Biscuits and they dance in circles in the morning for their treats!
 
Their customer service is first-rate – always quick to reply to emails and offer coupons and frequent-buyers information. How can you go wrong with such a great company?
 
The photo I’ve attached shows the two pups of the family (they’re about a year old now). River, the black and white Siberian husky, and Charlie the one-eyed husky/collie mix. They’re my children and I wouldn’t feed them anything else! The cat is Phoebe, a shelter-kitty. They all say thank you for such a great food! They’re all happy and healthier than they’ve ever been.

Thank you again!
