8 Dog Food Delivery Services That Make Mealtime a Breeze
Give your furry family member delicious, high-quality food delivered straight to your front door.
I think it’s safe to say we’re all looking for ways to reduce trips to the store right now and are becoming more and more comfortable having everything from groceries to laundry detergent conveniently delivered to our doorsteps. And if you have pets and aren’t getting their food delivered, too, then go ahead and add that to your must-do list. No more panic-stricken “we’re out of dog food!” moments or hurried pet store trips where you have to lug a human-sized bag of kibble to the car. These pet food delivery companies offer stress-free subscription and auto-ship services, so you don’t even have to think about adding dog food to your shopping list. But where do you even start when it comes to picking the right one? Does your dog need something for sensitive stomachs? Maybe beef is a no-go or they need a grain-free wet food? No matter your pup's dietary needs and preferences, these dog-loving brands have you covered with unique, high-quality wet food, dry food, fresh food and more.
Chewy pretty much has it all when it comes to pet care, from dogs to horses. They even have their own pharmacy. But what we love even more is the convenience of Chewy’s Autoship program. Select Autoship at checkout to set up your delivery schedule, and simply change or cancel at any time. The best part? You can save an extra five to 10 percent on every order! (Plus, you'll save 30 percent when you set up your first Autoship.) This is particularly convenient for food and treats. Chewy's private-label pet food brand, American Journey, is a great place to start, too. American Journey is crafted right here in the US with trusted ingredients (no by-product meals) and real animal protein listed as the first ingredient. The grain-free dog and cat food, treats and more are perfect for even the pickiest of palates, from salmon and sweet potato to duck. You can even find tailored food options like soy-free, high protein, sensitive digestion and weight control for every pet's particular needs.
The Farmer’s Dog delivers real, human-grade, ready-to-eat food right to your door. The fresh, balanced recipes are completely personalized to your dog’s individual needs and are even pre-portioned to keep your pup at her healthiest weight. Each meal is comprised of real meat, veggies, vitamins and minerals — that’s it! Prices range from $2 to $12 per day, depending on your dog’s profile and preferences. (My four-year-old Pitbull averages around $6 per day based on the profile I filled out.) Meals are delivered within days of cooking (nothing is frozen or shelved!) in refrigerated boxes and eco-friendly packaging. Plus, they're perfectly timed so you never have that "oops, I'm out of food!" moment.
Ollie is another dog food delivery brand that uses human-grade ingredients, like high-quality meats, vegetables and superfoods, to ensure your pup is getting all the nutrients they need. Many subscribers have noticed their pups have more energy, fewer allergies and shinier coats. And since every dog is different, just like us, their meal plans are tailored to fit their exact needs based on their age, breed, allergies, activity level and more. After getting your dog’s personalized meal plan, you can determine how much fresh food you want her to eat each day (some Ollie, mostly Ollie or all Ollie); this will greatly determine how much you spend each week. The recipes sound pretty tasty, too. My pup's recommended meal lineup included beef, sweet potatoes and peas and one that has turkey breast, kale, carrots and blueberries. Each recipe is freshly cooked and delivered within two days.
This one’s not just for dogs; Nom Nom offers fresh food for cats, too. A board-certified veterinary nutritionist creates each Nom Nom recipe to the nutritional levels established by AAFCO Food Nutrient Profiles, so you know your pet is getting the best of the best. Nom Nom posts each in-depth recipe on their site so you can see the full list of ingredients, calories and more. The Pork Potluck, for example, is filled with fresh pork, potatoes, green beans, squash, mushrooms, kale and fish oil. (Can I get some?!) Fido’s food will arrive right to your doorstep, cold and ready to serve, in fully-recyclable packaging. Pricing depends on your dog’s age, weight and activity level, plus whether you opt for full portions or half portions which can save you around 42 percent. Nom Nom also provides cost savings for less frequent deliveries and even offers a multi-pet discount.
The thing we love about Spot & Tango is that they offer two delicious food formats: UnKibble and Fresh. UnKibble is made with fresh ingredients and then dried, so there’s no need for refrigeration; just store it in the pantry. You’ll even get a custom scoop to ensure you’re serving the exact amount your dog needs to maintain a healthy weight. Fresh is just what it sounds like — fresh, human-grade food cooked in small batches each week and portioned just for your dog. You can store these pre-portioned packs in the fridge or freezer (simply defrost before serving). And just like our other picks, you’ll take a short quiz to get a personalized meal plan for your dog’s unique profile. Prices start at $7 per week for UnKibble plans and $15 per week for Fresh plans. Just to give you a more detailed look at pricing, it would cost around $8 per day for UnKibble and $14 per day for Fresh for my 45-pound girl. And just a heads up that UnKibble is currently only available for preorder — dogs love it!
Jinx has completely redefined kibble. Yes, it looks like your standard dry dog food, but it’s packed with real, fresh ingredients, from salmon and organic chicken to sweet potato and pumpkin. Each bag is made in the US, validated by vets and filled with clean ingredients — no fillers or artificials here. Jinx doesn’t offer personalized meal plans, but you can shop a variety of proteins for both grain-free and grain-friendly diets to choose the right one for your pup. Their best-selling salmon, brown rice and sweet potato recipe is paired with more than 20 functional superfoods and a combination of lean, supercharged meat- and plant-based proteins. Choose from four-, 10- and 20-pound bags, ranging in price from $25 to $75. Set up a subscription to save 10 percent and have it auto-delivered to your doorstep every three to eight weeks.
Give your four-legged pal a fresh-cooked meal and support a Black-owned business with PetPlate. PetPlate crafts mouthwatering food made in a USDA facility with all-natural, human-grade ingredients. The balanced, vet-designed, pre-cooked meals are pre-portioned, making mealtime a mess-free breeze. PetPlate touts incredible health benefits like improved digestion, healthier weight, allergy relief, more energy and genuine meal-time excitement. They even offer a Clean Bowl Guarantee — your pup will lick their bowls clean, or you get your money back on your first box. After filling out your pet’s profile, you can choose up to four different meals in each box — beef, turkey, chicken or lamb. You can pick between PetPlate’s Full Meal Plan, their most popular offering, or the Topper Plan, meant to “get their paws wet” and mix with their current dry food. Based on my dog’s profile, PetPlate recommends 1,920 calories per day, so the Full Meal Plan would cost $16.99 per day or $3.65 per day for the Topper Plan (this doesn’t include the first order discount). The meals are delivered straight to your door based on the delivery frequency in your meal plan. Shipping is always free, and you can pause your subscription or skip a week anytime you need to.
If you and your pet are committed to kibble, Tailored has you covered. Take a short quiz to get a one-of-a-kind, expert-formulated blend of kibble delivered fast and free to your door. Each bag is made with high-quality ingredients like real meat or fish and farm-grown veggies and is safely cooked in the US. Tailored lets you decide how much and how often you receive your food — from 7.5- to 40-pound bags and refills every two to 12 weeks. Subscribe and save 10 percent on every order (you can change your subscription or cancel at any time). Of all the personalized meal plans, Tailored’s quiz was the most in-depth. Beyond breed, weight, activity level and allergies, they dig into skin concerns, stool consistency, dental health and even the brand and type of food you use now. The tailored bag of food even has my pup’s name written right on the front with an extensive list of why that blend was chosen just for her. Want to try it out before taking the plunge? Enter code “TRY20” at checkout to save 20 percent on a one-time blend, or if you’re ready to jump in, subscribe and save 50 percent with code “TAILORED50.”
