When it comes time to feed your dog, you probably head to the pantry and open up a bag of dry kibble or a can of wet food. While there are plenty of high-quality commercial dog foods on the market, this type of food has its limitations.
The process through which traditional dog food is made often strips away the original nutritional integrity, and most brands design their foods to provide for only the most basic nutritional needs of dogs in certain life stages and different breed sizes.
Each dog is unique, and so are their nutritional needs. Fresh dog food companies offer customized meals that cater to a dog’s unique nutritional profile. That’s what fresh food from The Farmer’s Dog has to offer.
When I opened my home to a new companion — a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy I named Archie — I selected a popular dog food brand that offered a small-breed puppy formula and called it a day. Archie is the kind of dog that will eat anything that falls on the floor or anything I offer him by hand.
When it comes to eating from his own bowl, however, he can be a little picky. Most days he doesn’t show any interest in his food until one of my cats tries to eat it. So, when I was given the opportunity to try The Farmer’s Dog fresh food, I was interested to see how he would like it.
Before I get into the details, I want to point out that The Farmer’s Dog is not the only fresh food service available to dog owners. We’ve also tried products from PetPlate and Ollie, so I’ll be mentioning my experience with them as a point of comparison.
How the signup process works
The first step in testing The Farmer’s Dog food was to create an online profile for myself and Archie using the company website. The whole process took less than five minutes.
I plugged in basic information such as my name, email address, and zip code along with some facts about Archie including his sex, age, weight, and breed. From there, I was asked to evaluate his body composition, activity level, and eating preferences. After plugging in the necessary information, I learned that Archie needs roughly 460 calories per day.
