The dog food arrives frozen and is shipped with insulation made from recycled denim! How cool is that? It has a nice bit of dry ice to keep the food super cold, even if you have to leave it on your porch for a little bit while at work.

Included is a super important 'How To' card that explains how to store your pet's food. You can put a few containers in the fridge and keep the rest in the freezer. The containers stay fresh for about a week while in the fridge. The frozen food is good for up to one year. The back of this card explains how to transition your pup to his or her new food without upsetting their tummy.

We received 7, 32 oz containers. Each one is 4 full meals for Charlie, who is 35 lbs. That is a total of 28 meals or two weeks of food!

Time to meet our expert taste testers!


Charlie is our beloved rescue pug. While we do not know his age we have had him for almost 8 years! He came from a really abusive situation but now has basically the best life ever. You may notice his nails are rather long, and this is because no one used to cut them, ever! Can you believe that? Our vet does a good job at keeping them as short as we can without damaging his overgrown quick. He is approximately 35 lbs and a total glutton.


Piper has been my best girl since college. She is a feisty 12 years old and weighs around 12 lbs. She has only a few teeth left so soft foods are her jam! She hates squirrels and enjoys fresh hot laundry piles, growling at children, and guarding my purse. This subscription was originally for Charlie, but how could I leave my #1 girl out?

Pet Plate January 2019 dog bowls

Charlie requires a special bowl because his head is huge and he has such a short nose. He literally can't get to the food if the bowl isn't sloped in just the right way. Piper likes vintage glass and being fancy. Tonight we sampled the Pet Plate Lickin' Lamb formula. It was filled with lamb, sweet potatoes, quinoa, apples, and so many more yummy ingredients! You could literally see each individual ingredient in each scoop.

As we are just a few days in, Piper's normal wet food is mixed half and half with our Pet Plate selection.

Likewise, Charlie also has a 50/50 blend between Pet Plate food and his normal dry food.

Feeding time is a BFD in our house. Piper and Charlie keep a tight schedule and have no problem letting us know if we are late with dinner.

Charlie, in particular, can get quite intense. Just look at that focus!

It's time.

Pet Plate January 2019 finally the pups eat

It's a hit! My dogs are not picky eaters, but I can usually tell if they are especially thrilled with their food because they eat way too fast then clean their bowls more thoroughly than even a dishwasher could. We have been enjoying Pet Plate food for almost a week now and neither of them has had any issues with digestion or nasty potty breaks. I think this is certainly because of the super high ingredients and the food transition guide that we followed to the letter!

Pet Plate January 2019 the grand finale

Empty bowls tell no lies.

Pet Plate January 2019 piper says thanks

Piper thanks you for reading our review!

Verdict: My pups loved Pet Plate. I love that it is all natural, healthy, and can be frozen if needed. I also really like the different varieties because it gives them options when their normal food is just the same thing each and every day. Both of my dogs are older, and I found this food was super gentle on their stomachs and gums. Charlie still has great teeth and likes hard kibble, but I would absolutely consider going 50/50 full time for him. He just loves this stuff! Piper only has a couple of teeth left and has been eating soft canned food for almost 2 years now. She loved this food so much I would absolutely consider switching her to it full time, especially because of her age. This food is absolutely much more expensive than normal mid-grade dog food, but it is also much higher quality food. We all want our pets to live forever and top-notch nutrition certainly helps give them their best and longest lives. I also love the idea of never getting home after a long day and realizing I am out of dog food. With an automatic subscription that annoyance is history!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes! You can customize any assortment of their meals to your pup's liking.

ACTIVE DEAL: 50% off your first order.

Value Breakdown: For our 35 lb. pug, the cost per meal is around $3.01. With the promo code, that drops to $1.50 for your first 28 meals.

I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

Piper did too! MinPins are so weird and wonderful. Piper is almost too smart, I am sure you know what I mean since you have two of them!

Your dogs are so adorable! My rescue Jack Russell has had to recently switch to a softer food from kibble and I have found that splurging for a more expensive food is completely worth it. The nutrients that she loses because she is older are found in foods with whole, natural ingredients like this one, and those ingredients are the type that help our pups live longer and be spunky until the very end. If that’s not worth it, I don’t know what is! A great review as always – I love reading your honest reviews that read like I’m just chatting with my best friend.

Aww Gabbi! I am so glad you loved the review. I appreciate you leaving me such a sweet comment. It is so hard when they get older! I totally understand the urge to splurge. Both of mine literally get whatever they want these days. Table scraps, pupperoni, raspberries, sure! I wasn’t as lenient with them when they were younger, but I feel like in their golden years it’s fine to be super indulgent, especially when it comes to nutrition. I am glad to hear your pup has taken to her food. Long live spunk! <3

This is a great review. Your dogs are adorable! I’m a cat person but have always wanted a pug.

I highly recommend a pug! The only drawback is that they shed really badly! It is worth it IMO though. We have a cat named Birdie that I tried to include in a picture this review, but she was too busy attacking a roll of paper towels. Maybe next time!
