Best Dog Food Subscriptions for 2019

1. Ollie

Image via our review!

Cost: Plans start at $3/day, but depend on the size of your dog. Sign up here!

The Food: Fresh, human-grade food made from quality meats, veggies, fruits, and even probiotics and superfoods like chia seeds and omega-3 fatty acids.

How It Works: Ollie gets your dog’s age, size, and health info and pairs them with recipes and serving sizes to suit their needs. They give you a “puptainer” to help keep open packs of food fresh in the fridge, plus a scoop for easy portioning. Ollie recently redesigned their packaging, too, to deliver more food in fewer shipments (which means less packaging to deal with). Learn more by reading our Ollie review!

2. Spot & Tango

  1. So glad to see Heed Foods on this list. Seriously changed me and my pups life. She used to have the worst digestive problems and made a lot of “mistakes” because she just couldn’t control it. She’s been on Heed for the past couple of months and since then her digestions improved, is finally at a healthy weight and her coat has been insanely soft. Highly recommend!

  2. I used to feed all three of my girls I and Love and You (kibble for my younger beagle and chihuahua and soft food for my older terrier) and they all absolutely loved it. Their coats were also shinier and they seemed like they felt better on that food! I had to switch because it was just too expensive for three dogs but if you can afford it I highly recommend that brand!

  3. Has anyone tried making homemade dog food? Would like to try that once we’ve used the bags of dog food I bought in advance.

    • I have two Shih Tzu’s, (1 year old and 4 month old). They have only ever had raw food. I make it myself. I bought an industrial grinder from Amazon and grind chicken leg quarters, liver and gizzards. I grind 20 pounds at a time and it last’s for 3 months and costs right around $20 Their coats are shiny, gums are healthy, teeth are white. They poop about once a day and it’s small and solid. Don’t pee as much since they don’t need to drink as much because kibble isn’t sucking up fluids. I will never go back!

    • I haven’t yet, but I am thinking I should talk to the vet to see what would be best for my pibbles. They get some dry food, but I give them “treats” of fresh veggies. Hilarious how much these two will BEG for cabbage and Brussels sprouts

  4. Or you could be lucky like me and end up with a dog who needs 28 pills a day, a 3 AM feeding (and four other feedings plus one hardboiled egg), biweekly baths with medicated shampoo, and $500 a month of prescription canned food from the vet. (Nyx is worth it though!)
