PREMIUM PROGRAM MENUS Fresh. Simple. Affordable.
Keep your dog eating healthy on this annual program.
Our most comprehensive program gives you a years worth of dog food menus, starting with our 12-week Good Start Menu. Once your dog has transitioned off commercial dog food, we’ll send you a new 4-week Refresh Menu every 30 days. This plan also provides additional support, as you learn more about this healthy way of eating. Who knows, maybe even you’ll change how you and your family eat!
PREMIUM PROGRAM MENU DETAILS
Included in the Premium Program are 52-weeks of menus, an entire year. This is a perfect start for healthy dogs with no known health conditions. It’s also a great start for pet parents who are committed to providing fresh, whole-foods for their dogs.
Like all our standard menu plans, our Premium Program menus are based on your dog’s age, weight, reproductive state, and activity level to determine your dog’s total caloric needs. See Caloric Needs Formula.
YOUR DOG’S WEIGHT
You’ll need to know your dog’s weight to select the correct weight class. Our menu plans are sold in ten pound increments. If your dog is overweight or underweight, you’ll want to select based on goal weight versus current weight. See our Body Composition Visual Guide to help determine your dog’s healthy weight without a scale.
Macronutrients are proteins, carbohydrates and fats. We aim for approximately 50-20-30 protein to carbohydrates to fats percentage.
Micronutrients are vitamins and minerals required for a healthy dog. Vitamins include A, B, C & D (water soluble), and E. Minerals include Calcium, Phosphorus, Iron, Zinc, etc. And let’s not forget water is an important nutrient as well.

DAILY & MONTHLY
Keeping your ingredient cost affordable is one of our main goals, period. It shouldn’t cost a literal arm arm and leg to feed your dog quality, fresh, whole-foods.
Our Premium Program menus use ingredients that are typically available in local grocery or speciality stores. Thus, you can feed your dog on $1.00 to $4.00 per day depending on weight, and menu.
WEEKLY & MONTHLY
Our goal is to make it easy for you to get in and out of the grocery store as quickly as possible. Thus, provided with every menu plan are weekly and monthly shopping lists.
Each shopping list is split into pantry and perishable items. Pantry items tend to be shelf stable, and can be bought in larger volumes. Whereas, perishable items will need to be purchased weekly, unless you steam. process and freeze.
DAILY MENU DETAILS
Each Premium Program includes a 4-Week or 12-Week daily calendar for two meals a day, breakfast and dinner. Details include menu ingredients and quantity of each used to achieve the required calories, macronutrients and micronutrients.
Our main goals are to not only make the menus digestible and affordable, but to make it easy for you to establish a routine that works for your lifestyle.
We’ve selected menu ingredients that are commonly associated with breakfast. Ingredients may include eggs, oatmeal, bananas, blueberries, etc.
We utilized ingredients at dinner that are commonly part of a dinner routine. Such as beef liver, salmon, quinoa, lentils, spinach, carrots, chicken, etc.
Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for you to prepare our fresh, whole-food menu plans for your dog. Thus, we offer the following opportunities for you to learn and/or share your expertise with our community.
We will provide a “customer” online portal loaded with information to guide you through the process. Additionally, members of the portal are also free to share tips that have worked for you or answer questions posted by another customer. You will be required to set-up an account and log-in to this portal. You will have unlimited access for the time-frame of the plan you purchase.
We provide a monthly newsletter specifically for our customers. This newsletter will also answer many of the questions you might have, as well as provide tons of best practices to help you fit feeding your dog into your lifestyle.
Down the road we will also offer Educational Webinars, FB Live and YouTube Video’s to assist you in this process. Once we build a community, we will offer more face-to-face opportunities to learn and share ideas with others via Coffee Hours, Podcasts, Grocery Tours, Cooking Classes and more.
