Salmon + Chickpea Dog Food

When you start your subscription, you’ll fill out basic information about your dog. From your answers, they’ll recommend the size of the bag and the protein source. But, you can adjust both suggestions to your liking. This is the Salmon + Chickpea formula, but there is also Turkey + Pea and Beef + Chickpea.

You’ll also get a specific scoop size for the size of your dog. This makes the suggested serving size very easy – one scoop in the morning, one scoop at night.

Buckles definitely loved these treats – they’re bite-sized and soft, Buckles’ perfect formula.

Verdict: If you’re looking to skip the store and get a customized formula for your dog, The Naked Dog Box can be a good option for you. The value is definitely there too. In addition to the added convenience of getting your dog’s food delivered, the added treats and food are definitely added to the value of the delivery. While Buckles is set into his preferred kibble – he did like the formula – and that’s the most important part!

  1. As soon as the 40 pound bag of food I bought 3 days ago starts to run low I think I’m going to order this for both my dogs.

    And Buckles looks fab in his bow tie! Of course!

  2. I cannot recommend Chewy.com enough. Not only are they the cheapest and most convenient way to get pet products, but they are an amazing, customer-focused company. My cat passed away recently, and when I called them about returning his unopened supplies, they made the return 100% hassle free. Then a few days later, I received a beautiful flower arrangement and sympathy card from the woman who handled my return. They’re also the kind of company that sends handwritten Christmas cards and human beings answer the phone on the first ring. Pretty exceptional, especially for a web-based business.

  3. Interesting. I might give this one a shot. My Sheltie, Remy, is allergic to either beef or chicken (or both) so I appreciate that they use other protein sources. I’m wondering if the food really lasts the full two weeks though.

    I don’t know much about the breakdown in protein and all that and it kind of makes my eyes glaze over. Any animal food experts out there want to chime in on whether all that means it’s good?

    Also, did Buckles seem to like the food?

    • Check out dogfoodadvisor.com. They tend to be pro high protein diet, so their rankings are heavily weighted on that, but they do a decent analysis with a fairly short write up that’s easy to read. There are options to search for limited ingredient foods that might help you.

      This sub seems interesting, but it’s pretty expensive for something I think I can get a comparable food for. With my dog being at around 50-52 pounds, and the way the cut off is (30 to 50 or 51-80+) just seems like a tough call. The 30-50 would run almost $60 per month, and I’m not sure it’s necessarily the right amount/portion (so could be more). Not to say I put a price tag on a good diet for my dog, but for price and familiarity (letting me pick the food I’ve researched and prefer for my dog), I just get dog food through Chewy. I can easily pick from a HUGE selection, swap flavors, choose my delivery frequency, and their CS is amazing.

      • I love Chewy. I get a lot of cat food there. I always order over $50 worth of stuff so I can get free shipping (and it comes in 2-3 days).

        Unfortunately, Nyx can ONLY eat prescription Hill’s z/d in CANS, which runs me $500 a month.

      • Thanks! I will check out Chewy and see if I can find better deals. I’m tempted to try this one at the $10 rate. My cost would be around $40 a month I think but I’m also concerned that the suggested serving size (4 oz) is too small. My dog gets a cup of food in the morning and another in the evening and it seems to keep him at a healthy weight. Even though he is 9, he is pretty active and runs the yard like a madman every time he goes out. I’m skeptical that 4 oz would fill him up.

        I’m currently using Pure Balance, which gets 3 1/2 stars on the dogfoodadvisor site. Not the best rating but it seems decent enough for him. Price is just ok as it also runs about $40 a month at the two cups a day.

        • Dog foods can have totally different calorie densities depending on the ingredients. Something with a fair amount of grain/starch is going to have a physically larger volume than the same number of calories in a protein dense food. So depending on the quality and ingredients, you really can size down in terms of food weight.

          • Oof, I just compared weight to volume. Well, what I mean is that in the physically larger volume, there is often some non-digestible filler that just passes through. The filler does add to the weight as well as the bulk.
