About the project

Every pet deserves real food– whole, high-quality food that we believe helps all pets thrive. 

What goes into recipes is every bit as important as what’s left out so, using nothing but whole foods, Dr. Bessent formulated limited-ingredient recipes. Then, using some rather cutting-edge spaceman technology, she freeze-dried them so that every benefit of raw, whole food was available for your pet.

It’s real, whole food nutrition without compromising convenience and that really makes the decision around how and what to feed your growing dog simple. 

It’s simple. it’s food as food should be.

What's in a box?

It can be challenging to compare pet foods, especially with so many different product offerings on the market.

To help with that, we kept it simple—just 16 honest-to-raw ingredients in each recipe. 

What goes into recipes is every bit as important as what’s left out.  The big difference in our food (versus others on the shelf) is that we’re made entirely of fresh, whole foods.  So you won’t find rendered meals, fillers like soy, wheat, or grain, synthetic vitamins, or minerals that make up other pet “food” in our recipes.  Just real, whole food sourced in the US, freeze-dried raw to keep all the benefits food has to offer.

Simple food serving suggestions

Start by using the daily feeding guide below and adjust to your own puppy’s needs. 

If your pup is 4 months or younger, we’d suggest allowing your puppy to graze throughout the day. You can also break up their feeding schedule by putting food out four or more times a day.

Once they’re 4-months-old, you can start dividing their food into two portions, feeding in the AM & PM.

* # of tsp Puppy Balancer pair with that specific amount of food only.  If you change the amount you’re feeding, follow the below*

For every 1/3 cup of Simple Food added to their bowl, add 1 tsp Puppy Balancer.
