Dog Food Reviews
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.
No more health problems
There is several people interested in the Casper, Wyoming area. I have been feeding this food for 6 months and have seen great improvement in my samoyeds- show dogs and house dogs. I have also started my sisters 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. We have been getting it in Colorado at this point. There are people in Wyoming that deal in CANIDAE but we would much rather handle it ourselves. I would like for you to send me info on your kennel program and/or distributorship. I would need exact pricing on this and options. My husband is a trucker and there may be a possibility of getting it shipped up here from your nearest warehouse. Maybe him picking it up or having Northpark or another trucking company picking it up. We would be looking at a pallet at a time. So, I would need weight of the pallet and price.
I just wanted to say how impressed I am with your products.
We have two dogs, a golden and a lab, and we can feel good about giving them snap biscuits as treats!

I swear to this
My 9 yr. old dog was losing fur, his coat was dull, he was listless. The health food store in Arlington, WA, told me about CANIDAE and (I swear to this) within 3 days I noticed a HUGE improvement. His fur was not falling out as much, his eyes were bright and he was playing again. THANK YOU! Now my cats are on FELIDAE as well. My mother would like to start her animals on both FELIDAE and CANIDAE–can you give me a store location in Boise, Idaho?
Thank you from all of us!
I’ll never use anything else!
I just wanted to thank you for making such a fantastic product line. My Rottweilers puppy thrives on your food! I had tried numerous other premium brands prior to yours but some claiming to be great for allergic dogs made his coat dull and his skin itchy and flaky, and others he simply wouldn’t eat. I’m now convinced that CANIDAE is the best food on the market. He loves the taste… his tail wags at breakfast and dinner, and his coat glows… no more itchy or dull coat. The price is also lower than most foods that claim to be super premium. Thank you for your devotion to pet health and for producing such a great food… I’ll never use anything else!
Hello CANIDAE – I wanted to write and tell you how much I appreciate your product.
I have a 15 month old Boxer mix dog and for her first 12 months she was fed Iams Puppy exclusively. She had terrible flatulence and often runny stools. However, she grew well and had a great coat. When she turned a year old, I wanted to switch her to an adult / maintenance food. I researched around 12 different types of dry food, and did reading into what is considered to be needed / best for coat condition / stool consistency / flatulence control. Most experts seemed to agree that corn could cause bloating and flatulence, and that most dog foods have unnecessary fillers in them. I have owned horses for 14 years and know about corn and fillers in their feed, so I searched for a dry dog food without corn (really tough!) and with more healthful ingredients found CANIDAE. After only one week of eating this food, my dog has almost no flatulence and she passed solid small stools. I fed CANIDAE for 2 1/2 months and then decided to try another food that also had no corn. During the introduction process (where you feed mostly the former food while putting in small amounts of the new.) my dog began resisting her meals and her extreme flatulence returned. I gave it 2 weeks, then gave up on the “new” food. I went back to CANIDAE. Success !
Thank you for a great food.
