Dog Food Reviews
Your food has turned out to be cost effective and nutritious, as well as satisfying.
Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with CANIDAE. I feed raw food in the evening and kibble in the morning. Riki is 1-1/2 yr old German Shepherd I am training in Search and Rescue. She LOVES her raw food meal, and on her previous high quality natural commercial food I was previously feeding would often fail to eat her morning meal. Not a good thing in a dog that may have to go out and perform some arduous work before the evening meal. We actually had an instance of exercise induced hypoglycemia which my vet said skipping meals may have contributed too. I need to feed a kibble because I can’t carry a refrigerator out on a mission with me now can I?
When I leave for work in the morning Riki often gets a meaty bone, or a Kong stuffed with peanut butter. She likes your food so much she will lick the Kong or bone a couple of times and then gobble up her kibble before returning to her bone! Her weight has improved and we have even managed to get a little body fat on her!!!! Her coat and muscle are fabulous. Of course her eyes sparkle with mischief, and she is FULL of energy for play and training.
Your food has turned out to be cost effective and nutritious, as well as satisfying. Thanks for a GREAT product and the answer to my problems.

I have owned and bred Bernese Mountain Dogs for years. Two months ago, a fellow breeder recently introduced me to CANIDAE. She knew I had been cooking for my dogs because I didn’t think they were getting the proper nutrients from their commercial food. With CANIDAE, I don’t need to add anything. One of my dogs is a six-year-old spayed Berner who has always had a rather dry coat. With CANIDAE, her coat has now developed a lustrous sheen. When I walk my dogs, neighbors stop me and ask what I feed them.
Thanks so much
I know my dogs will live a lot healthier life on CANIDAE
The Jasper family wants to thank you very much for having available the most natural foods in CANIDAE, we take along with our daily foods, great vitamins and when I noticed that the ingredients in our dogs menu, I was surprised to see they are taking as much vitamins as we do and even more. This is great I said to my husband, no more over the counter vitamins for Duke & Dharma, they have everything they need plus a great deal more. Our dogs are very healthy and have always been groomed as well as we are, now that they are eating CANIDAE which I want to say they just love it, (seconds please). They are even more vibrant, thanks to your table of contents, they just received their first gourmet Snap-Biscuits, what a treat, I have to hide the bag, when they hear me open it they come running, this is my way of saying again, thank you so very much, I know my dogs will live a lot healthier life on CANIDAE.
Ps. Duke & Dharma says bowl lick-in good!!

My dogs have had amazing results from eating CANIDAE Dog Food.
About a year ago, I noticed that my two GSDs (Sarah and Beatrice) were itchy, and that Sarah’s coat was not what I thought it should be… rough, brittle and dry. I decided to change our dog food. I saw an article in the Whole Dog Journal that listed what they thought were the top 10 dog foods, and called the top five or six companies on the list, asking for samples. I received three or four samples, and I put them down in front of my dogs. Both immediately went for the CANIDAE, so I figured it was a good bet. We switched.
This winter, Sarah has the most MAGNIFICENT coat you could want for a girl. Beatrice has never been a slouch in the coat department, and she looks as wonderful as she ever has, but without any itchiness. Neither girl scratches any more.
For the past six months, I have been fostering dogs for San Francisco Bay Area German Shepherd Rescue (www.SFGSRescue.org). In late December, I was asked to foster Xury, an 18-24 month old female who had been hit by a car a couple of weeks earlier. She was malnourished, mangy, and in pain from a broken femur, but with the most beautiful personality you would want in a dog. I said absolutely yes. She was pulled from the shelter by a couple who kept her for a few days until the vet could take care of her leg (this of course happened over the New Year.) When they bathed her, her fur broke off due to its horrible condition. She was in a very sorry state.
The vet operated on her leg, and set the femur, and she came home with me. The couple who had her between the shelter and the vet told me she was a picky eater, and all they could find that she would eat was Pedigree canned food on Waverly Wafers. I was prepared to cook for this dog, because I figured that chicken and rice was infinitely better than Pedigree and crackers. I tried the CANIDAE first (hoping for the easy way out, not having to cook) and she LOVES it. She eats willingly and with gusto. I am feeding her the kibble only, since it has more calories per ounce than the kibble/canned mixture I feed my other dogs. Xury needs all the help she can get, calorie-wise.
Xury has been here for about a month now. Her fur is no longer breaking off, and it has a sheen to it (even the vet noticed the change on a return visit). She has gained 4 pounds, and her backbone and ribs are slowly receding. They had sharp edges on them when she came here. She is spunky, and active and full of mischief, and she still eats her CANIDAE willingly and with gusto. Her transformation to date has been amazing.
I was telling my trainer that I thought the CANIDAE had made this transformation possible, and she asked if I had told you yet. I hadn’t, but I HAVE told everybody that will listen.
I have just switched all of my dogs to your food
I have just switched all of my dogs to your food from one of the nationally known brands that I have used for the past 20 years. They had a formula change this past year, my dogs lost weight, I had immune problems I have never had, I lost puppies and then an entire litter of 7. What type of Breeders program do you have? I am planning on setting up a link to your site and referring my puppy buyers to your local distributor so they can purchase the food before they return home. I live in a rather remote area and have puppy buyers from all over North America and Europe.

Dear CANIDAE Pet Foods
Porter is our first raised CANIDAE pup pictured here at 9 months and 1 day he is one of three from the same litter I am growing out. Bright clear eyes, thick well conditioned coats, Overall good strong body structure both skeletal and muscular no down pasterns and a steady paced growth rate for such large boned puppies. Just overall happy high activity level healthy pups.
We have for ages it seems, been searching for good quality pet food. Our favorite pet store told us about your product and we purchased a bag of the CANIDAE “Maintenance Formula” as well as a bag of the “Natural Gourmet Snap Biscuits”. Let me tell you, the dogs were so happy with your product that we went online to your web site to see what you put in this food to make it so appetizing to them. We want to tell you that the information we got from your wonderful site answered all our concerns and questions. We will help our friends with their pet feeding concerns by sharing our discovery.
Yours Sincerely Ken M.
I just wanted to let more people know about this amazing food. I am a first time pet guardian, and I rescued the cutest Lab Retriever mix from the pound. He was two months old and in good health. I’ve been feeding him Purina puppy chow for his entire time with me, which has been about 11 months. Well, he has had bad dandruff at times. Sometimes it looked like big flakes to even a “powdered” look. I’ve tried all the home remedies like putting canola oil in his food, and even an occasional egg. Well, after extreme studying, and investigating for a new food that I was told that I didn’t need to go that route by a vet, I narrowed my choices down to Bil-jac, and CANIDAE. I actually received your E-mail contact from a breeder off of a chat web site (to whom I am grateful to) well then I contacted my aunt, which shows her dogs professionally, she competed in the Westminster show and got “best of breed other “, she also is a CANIDAE user. Well she told me that I should use CANIDAE and that I should not use any other food at all but that!!! So I promptly went out to my local pet shop and got myself and my pup a nice 40 pound bag!! And let me tell you guys a thing or two!!! That food must be made of gold! Now my pup has fur that feels like rabbit fur, and has no sign of that dandruff. This is all within two weeks!!! I just had to thank all of you over at CANIDAE. I thank you, and I know that my pup Tye thanks you as well! Truly an amazing product!
Thank you, and forever grateful,
Luke and Tye!
CANIDAE is GREAT!!!
When I purchased my English Bulldog 2 1/2 years ago, she was 10 weeks old. She was sweet and healthy. I did notice one thing about her though that just didn’t seem right. The breeder sent me home with a bag of “premium” food she had been feeding the litter along with the parents. This food is popular and still on the market, but it wasn’t the right food for my “Daisy.” As soon as she ate, she was running to the door to be let out for a bathroom break. Because I have studied nutrition and herbs for a hobby and small business, I knew there was no way that Daisy was able to assimilate and use the nutrients she had just eaten if she was passing the food that quickly! I supplemented her with some herbs and vitamins until I found CANIDAE. It was everything I was looking for! No more supplements was needed and she held her food for an adequate time. Her weight, coat and overall appearance is GREAT! We now have a litter of English Bulldogs, 7 of them! Daisy ate CANIDAE all through her pregnancy and the puppies are enjoying it now. This was our first time breeding our bulldog and we will do it again. We have other breeders switching to CANIDAE because we have been so successful. We had 100% survival rate and our 8 weeks pups are BIGGER and healthier than the other 12 week old litter in our town.
THANK YOU CANIDAE!
I started using your dog foods 2 years ago after a nasty situation with the barf diet and not too much luck with Innova. From the very beginning my dogs have loved the taste. Feeding an entire kennel of large dogs is no easy feat, but CANIDAE was convenient and priced affordable. I feed 2 breeds both working and show and across the board I have the very best coats, muscle tone, and stamina. My litters have no post weaning diarrhea and are hearty little puppies right from the start. I have recommended CANIDAE to several friends of mine and all are truly amazed at how nice their dogs have turned around.
Thank you for your breeder’s program for people like me and thank you from my dogs for a nutritious product that tastes great!!

All four dogs are doing extremely well on CANIDAE and I intend to keep them on it
I am the owner of two Newfoundlands and two Mastiffs. For many years I have been feeding my dogs another brand of high quality dog food. Recently, from Mastiff Rescue I adopted two 9 month old Mastiff pups horribly abused and as you can imagine, suffering greatly from malnutrition.
I put them on the food my Newfoundlands had been eating. Within a day or so I had nothing but extremely loose stools and piles of it! After a week this still continued. I went to my dealer who suggested CANIDAE.
After only one day of mixing CANIDAE with my former food to accustom their systems to it, the loose stools disappeared. I immediately took them off the old food and started feeding the CANIDAE exclusively.
As you know, big jowled dogs are not the neatest eaters. Some of the kibble landed on the floor and there were my Newfoundlands to gobble it up (one of my Newfoundlands is an extremely picky eater).
To make a long story short, all four of my dogs are now exclusively on CANIDAE. I very much appreciate the size of the kibble – previously, I had to soak my Newfoundlands food in water (since one of the theories of bloat is the kibble expanding). I also appreciate your high-quality ingredients and that no corn, soy or wheat is used. I also noticed that the size of their stools has decreased tremendously whereas before on my former food, I had “mountains.”
My dogs are my kids and nothing makes me happier then seeing four heads in a bowl with tails wagging.
Thank you so much,
Hello to the folks at CANIDAE
I have been feeding CANIDAE for 6 months and have seen great improvement in my Samoyeds- show dogs and house dogs. I have also started my sister’s pom on it and her dog should be your poster dog. Her dog had bald spots that would not clear up for over a year and a very dry coat. I put this pom on your food and with in two months her spots filled in and the dog has a beautiful coat and no more health problems. I had a girl that my vet could not figure out why she limped in the front, this was a off and on occurrence. We did x-rays, put her on meds, etc. Since she has been on your food- no more limping. The stories go on. I have a friend that saw the improvements in my dogs and started a couple of her dogs on it and loves it. She has a kennel of 31 sled dogs, some working some show.
