A fresh take on dog food

Taste-tested by us. Served fresh by you. Wolfed down by them.


Butternut is perfect for...

We're putting the food back into dog food

For a can of dog food to be labelled as ‘with chicken’, it only needs to contain 4% chicken.

We think dogs deserve better.

That’s why we only use ingredients that you can see and say.

None of the nasties, all of the goodness and lots of tail wags from £1.31 a day.

Frequently asked questions

From our fellow dog lovers

We freeze our meals to lock in all the fresh and natural goodness. Your doglicious meals will arrive frozen in an insulated box - ready to pop into the freezer or defrosted in the fridge.

You can safely dish up the meals that you have frozen for up to 12 months after the date it’s been cooked. Once defrosted, you can keep the meals unopened in the fridge for up to 7 days, and up to 2 days after you open them.

We deliver to most of the UK mainland and Northern Ireland but we don't currently deliver to parts of Scotland or islands off the UK.

If you want to see if we can deliver to you, please contact our Customer Love team.

Nope! We cook all our recipes at a low temperature in small batches. Our process gets rid of any harmful bacteria whilst preserving the high quality vitamins and minerals naturally found in the food.

Absolutely! Each of our gently cooked recipes have been developed to make sure your puppy is getting everything he or she needs to grow happy and healthy. All of the freshly prepared meat that goes into our meals is high quality protein, which is good news for growing muscles. Plus, because our fresh meals are made using high quality, every day ingredients, they are easy to digest - especially for ever-changing tummies that are starting to develop and grow.

From your dog (we assume)

Yes. Yes you are. Now who wants a treat?

It was reported* in 1876 that Doug, an accountant from Norfolk, aimed to close the gap between human and dog behaviour. Butt sniffing was the second endeavour, after a game of catch on all fours. Needless to say, his colleague Phil wasn’t impressed and the whole thing was quickly shut down.

*we read it on the back of an old supermarket receipt.

Only if you’ve brushed your teeth, cleaned your paws and promise not to hog all the covers!

That is… your tail. Nothing is following you, it’s more that you are a leader. A chief, a commander and director. You are leading your tail. Continue with pride.

P.S - chasing your tail typically results in your human uploading a lengthy video that often goes viral*

*Viral = the human equivalent to a very popular urine covered tree
