Have you ever wondered why we feed our dogs chunks of mashed-up ingredients that are formed into bits of kibble, yet we eat real meat, veggies, and other appetizing foods?
I have, which is why I've committed to feeding my adorable Shorkie, Nygma, only healthy, real foods since adopting him a few years ago. In this house, we're into homemade foods and raw ingredients because Nygma deserves a wholesome and nutritious diet like I feed my kids.
Enter Sundays, air-dried, human-grade dog food that doesn't need to take up space in your fridge. I had Nygma test it out for me so that we could give you all the details.
What is Sundays?
Sundays is a dog food brand designed for dogs who are family, not pets. Developed by veterinarian Dr. Tory Waxman, who wanted a better kind of dog food than what's typically available on store shelves, Sundays gives the nutrition you'd expect from homemade dog food but without the hassle and mess in the kitchen. In fact, you don't even have to store this air-dried food in the refrigerator.
In Sundays dog food — available in Beef and Chicken varieties — you'll find wholesome, clean ingredients that you'd be happy to eat yourself. Sundays is gently air-dried to kill bacteria while keeping the ingredients' nutrients intact. The result is a jerky-like texture that's so full of flavor, your dog will think you're feeding them something super special.
Dog Food with Real Ingredients I Can Pronounce
If there's one thing I always stay away from when it comes to food for Nygma, it's food with super long ingredient names that I can't pronounce. Sundays, on the other hand, includes nutritious ingredients — and I know what every single one of them is.
Your pooch gets an eclectic mix of protein, vegetables, fruit, herbs, and spices, including pumpkin, flaxseed, parsley, cherries, and kelp. The result? A healthy dog food made up of ingredients that you probably already have in your diet, too.
Awesome Eye-Catching Packaging
I am obsessed with Sundays' packaging. The bright yellow and blue boxes for the Chicken and Beef varieties I received are so fun and playful that I don't mind leaving them on the kitchen counter in plain sight.
Even better are the bags inside those boxes. I usually fight with dog food bags to get them open and seal them up again to keep them fresh. Not with Sundays.
These bags have a unique resealable closure on top that seals the bag up tight, so I don't have to worry about the food getting stale or making space for bugs to get in. It's also ridiculously easier than other dog food bags to open.
Nygma Thinks It's a Treat
I don't think I've ever seen my Shorkie's eyes get so big for food before. Nygma knows when the Sundays box is coming out. He runs to me, gives me a look, and politely waits for me to fill his bowl with the good stuff.
I love that he actually gets excited to eat Sundays, making me feel even better about the quality of the food he's eating.
While I have found other dog foods that I've enjoyed feeding my dog, I can't say that they've all made me as excited as Sundays. I love giving Nygma homemade food, but it honestly can be very time-consuming. Sundays lets me feed him food I feel good about when I don't have time to make a batch of homemade food.
I absolutely recommend giving Sundays a try. Use the handy food calculator to find out how much you'll need to feed your pup. Then, make a one-time purchase or subscribe for regular shipments to save on your order!
