Dog Food Reviews
We love CANIDAE and have since 1999
4/5/2010 - 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
4/6/2010 - 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!

She runs right to her bowl and goes to town
4/13/2010 - 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
4/20/2010 - 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
4/26/2010 - 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!

Their coats are beautiful and shiny
4/28/2010 - 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“!!!
Attached are two photos. The furry guy in the bedroom is Coco and the brown girl looking lazy laying her head down is Bella.
Now we’re a complete CANIDAE and FELIDAE feeding household!
5/3/2010 - 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.
We 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!
I finally tried CANIDAE All Life Stages and the dogs dove right in!
5/5/2010 - I have an 8 year old Schnauzer mix, Scruffy, who has been on many different foods in his life. He was most recently on [a different brand] and had bumps with scabs all over his body. We also just adopted a Pit Bull mix puppy, Trina, from the pound who came to us on [a different brand]. Her stool was so stinky and she had so much gas. She also had missing patches of hair! I knew I needed a better food, so I got a few different brands to try. They either wouldn’t eat it or they would get loose stools with gas. I finally tried CANIDAE All Life Stages and the dogs dove right in! Their stool firmed right up and they have NO GAS! My Schnauzers’ skin also cleared up and both of their coats are nice and thick and shiny. I will never change foods again. I love that CANIDAE ALS is the best food for my senior and my puppy so I can feed the same food to both. Thank you CANIDAE!
I have been buying your food for my pets for years
5/26/2010 - I have been buying your food for my pets for years and trust it completely. We have four cats and a standard poodle named Reginald Jewel — RJ for short — named after my grandfather. The lady at the pet store said CANIDAE had incredible customer service. Thanks for your great service and support… RJ loves your food!
I no longer have to mix canned food in to get my dogs to eat kibble
6/1/2010 - We absolutely LOVE your food. After finding out that our 10 year old Staffordshire Terrier had severe grain allergies, we tried a few brands, some at the top of the price scale, some lower, you guys are right in the middle and are the best. I no longer have to mix canned food in to get my dogs to eat kibble.
They are looking awesome. Gizmo (Staff) lost her ear infections and skin issues after eating CANIDAE. We feed CANIDAE Grain Free All Life Stages, sometimes switching to CANIDAE Grain Free Salmon for a change. It also has been great for our 5-1/2 month old German Shepherd, Cullen. He is very active, working both in training for Schutzhund, and for conformation shows.
We will be acquiring a female GSD later down the line to participate in the same sports, and possibly breeding, and will still continue to use your products!!!! Thanks for everything, you guys are so great!!! I am sending you pictures of both of them taking a day off at the beach this week!!!! Gizmo likes rolling in the sand more than she likes the water, but at 10 years old, she still has the heart of a puppy!!!

My 135 lb. Landseer Newfoundland, Shiloh, thanks you too
6/7/2010 - I looked up your website as I wanted to ask why you do not make the 44 lb. bags easier to open. But surprise, surprise, I find you have already done that. Way to go!
It is always a mystery to me that the smaller the bag is, the easier it is to open and reseal. Thanks for fixing this.
My 135 lb. Landseer Newfoundland, Shiloh, thanks you too. She loves your Grain Free All Life Stages food. We get it at Pet World in Lakewood, Co. — a nice store!!
Shiloh would say, “CANIDAE is the healthy choice in dog food for me. The grain free formula is very helpful with my allergies and is tasty and nutritious. CANIDAE Grain Free ALS twice a day really works for me.”
I want people to know how awesome your food is!!!
6/14/2010 - Hello! My name is Sarah and I have three fuzzy children who are my life. I just wanted to let you know that I am in awe over your dog food. I want people to know how awesome your food is!!! I put my three dogs on CANIDAE. They ALL have sensitive tummies.
My deaf and blind dog Keller has severe trust issues as he was abused when he was a baby. (He’s only two now!) He won’t eat treats, any table scraps, hates toys and it was a daily struggle for him to finish his dry dog food. I had him on a hypoallergenic prescription diet for a long time due to his sensitive tummy and he never really liked it but it was all I could feed him.
When I moved to California, the prices of the prescription dog food (which wasn’t the healthiest food out there, anyway) were asinine. I decided to switch their food. I tried a holistic diet by [another manufacturer] and all three rejected it. They all three hated the taste and their stomaches hated the digestion process.
Desperate, I emailed you. You gave me peace of mind that your food was natural and holistic and all animal protein sources were not from cruel places. The food has US ingredients and I had to give it a try.
INSTANTLY, Keller is OBSESSED with the wet CANIDAE formula. He cries and jumps on the counter when I prepare it with the CANIDAE Beef and Fish Meal dry formula. His food is literally gone in 1 minute and 43 seconds! (I timed it today, ha ha ha.)
Everyone looks forward to meal time and they all have solid BMs.
I want to thank you for your your comfort, your prompt response to my email, and most of all for the amazing dog food that I will never take my boys off of. Your company is amazing. You’ve all made my life so much easier and three tummies a whole lot less grumbly.
