Why we went raw and why you really should do the same

There is no disputing the fact that dogs are just like humans – we cannot function at optimal health eating processed and packaged food.  Research is abundantly clear on this.

Do you think it is reasonable for you to eat packaged mac and cheese for every meal?  Of course not…we know that we humans need whole, unprocessed fresh foods.

The same goes for our dogs.  Giving them processed, dried food full of synthetic ingredients is not healthy for them, and how do you think they feel eating the same food for every meal?

Our dog's deserve better, research is clear that they need better, and we have made it easy for you to give your dogs the absolute best in raw dog food.

The Food Hierarchy

Foods available for our dogs follow this hierarchy, from unhealthy to most healthy:

  1. Dry dog food
  2. Dry dog food (kibble) with raw ingredients added;
  3. Canned dog food;
  4. Freeze dried dog food (subjected to irradiation or HPP);
  5. Raw dog food purchased that comes frozen or refrigerated (subjected to irradiation or HPP);
  6. Freeze dried dog food (not subjected to irradiation HPP);
  7. Raw dog food purchased that comes frozen or refrigerated (not subjected to irradiation or high-pressure processing (HPP);

Actually, all this food on this list except for #7 is really unhealthy. There are just degrees of unhealthy, with dry dog food being the worst.

While a Raw Dog Food diet that you purchase commercially is light years ahead of anything further up the list, when it is subjected to irradiation or HPP (high pressure processing), it is almost no better than the other processed foods on this list.

Great, you might think.  I'll just go to my pet food retailer and get some raw dog food that is not subjected to irradiation or HPP.

That is what we thought…

There are varying levels of quality in raw dog food, even if your purchase product that is not subject to irradiation or HPP

All raw dog food that we know of, which includes commercial ones you purchase in retail, order online, or dog food co-ops that you purchase from, still does not use the healthiest ingredients available.  We know because we have looked just about everywhere when we were switching our dogs to raw in 2012.  And we continue to search far and wide and still do not see the quality we want.

The reason is cost.  We humans are use to cheap, processed food, so when we see truly healthy food the way it is suppose to be, it is far more expensive, but we opt for the cheaper stuff anyway.

Pet food providers simply respond to what we consumers want, and cheap food is the order of the day.

But they can label foods with just about anything they want to make it sound healthy, without proving it, so you might think you are getting a quality product, but in fact, you are not.

But we said “NO” to all of that.  So much so that we had to go back to the drawing board and develop our own process for obtaining the healthest, highest quality ingredients that we can find.

It should not be that hard to get quality food, but it is, because our food system, especially dog food, has evolved since World War II in deep ways to make it hard to source anything that is truly healthy.

What makes our Raw Dog Food different

Most dog food is comprised of meat.  We not only purchase direct from ranches that raise the meat, but also we scrutinize how they raise meat, because that is an enormous factor in whether the product is healthy or not.

Feedlot beef, which comprises more than 94% of U.S. produced meat, is unhealthy, which research is proven.

Further, it is inhumane to the animals, and actually increases carbon release in the atmosphere, whereas grass fed, pasture raised animals improve our grasslands ability to pull more carbon out of the atmosphere (and the animals are much happier roaming around).

We source directly from 100% grass fed only ranches that we personally inspect and that follow standards set by the American Grassfed Association for range land management, and follow standards set by the Global Animal Partnership for outstanding animal welfare.  As only 6% of U.S. beef is 100% grass fed, not all of it abides by standards set by these organizations, so it is even harder to purchase this kind of beef.

And, you cannot trust that meat labeled as grass fed is truly grass fed.  A 2016 law relaxed the standards for labeling grass fed beef, allowing manufacturers to say meat is grass fed when it is not.  It may be partially grass fed, but 30-days or more of finishing on grain in feedlots will completely reverse any benefits of grass fed meat.  As a result, if you really want to verify that your beef is grass fed, you have to buy from ones that either have the American Grassfed Association designation, or visit them and conduct your own inspection (the designation can be expensive to obtain).

Besides meat, raw dog food comprises vegetables and fruit.  We only use organic, some of which we are growing on our own farm to use in our dog food products.

All of our supplements are organic, and most are whole food, some of which we make, like the yogurt from raw milk producers that we source (not pasturized).

We do not have growth hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, sugar, salt, grains, preservatives, stabilizers, antioxidants, artificial colors, artificial flavors, fillers, chemicals, and no GMO (genetically modified organism).

We produce on our farm in our USDA licensed kitchen.  We do not outsource to some big manufacturer. We are a small operation and we plan to keep it that way.  We typically only produce in lots up to 150 pounds, so we are truly small batch!

Our formula is balanced in the right proportions that mirrors the dog ancestral diet originally developed by Steve Brown, a renowned dog nutrition and dog raw food expert. We further adjust the supplements based on the latest and best research available about raw dog food diets and researchers. We even developed a training on it if you prefer to do it yourself.

The result is a raw dog food product is the healthiest we can make. And our raw dog food is exactly the food we feed our dogs.

When you buy from us, you are supporting the ranches, farms and small companies like us that produce with care and concern for livestock, land, environment and our beloved dogs. And, you are shifting your buying dollars away from the rest of the commercial pet food industry that has no such interests in mind.

We deliver it to you, ready to serve!

Our food is packaged, frozen, and delivered on the first Tuesday of every month to you at your home or business, or location of your choosing.

Our food is ready to serve to your dog.  No weighing or combining foods or guessing.  Just defrost and serve.

We offer several formulas with different meats and vegetables to give your dog variety from one month to the next, which is exactly what we do. You can chose to do what we do or if you prefer, stick to just one formula.

Our service area is Ken Caryl, across South Denver to Parker, and South to Monument.

We also offer discounts if you pickup from us
