Our Original Base-Mix

Cook for my dog?

Our Original Base-Mix requires some preparation, but don't worry, you're not cooking dinner for your dog every night. You cook a "batch=10 cups" at a time, of freshly prepared food. Health begins in the kitchen, diet is perhaps the most important aspect to maintaining a dog's health, besides love of course!

Sure it's healthy, but how does it taste?

Dogs love our Original Base-Mix, even the most finicky of dogs will thank you by cleaning their bowls. It's that good, in fact so good, once your dog has had a taste he or she will never settle for anything else. A food your dog will love to eat and love you for feeding it!

No Dyes, No Preservatives, No Chemicals

Commercial dog foods use preservatives to increase shelf life and artificial flavoring to enhance the way the food looks and tastes. Fresh meat does not "stay fresh" at room temperature for more than a few hours. These additives can have detrimental effects on your dog's short and long term health.

Still Not Convinced? Try a Sample!

Great dog food. Very clean.

I have been purchasing happy dog food or at least a year. This has been a great option for our dogs (vizslas). They have a sensitive digestive system and this food agrees very well with them. The online ordering and setting up a schedule for reoccurring orders is brilliant!

My dogs LOVE this food

We have four big dogs who are soooo happy with this food. People regularly comment on how fit they look and how shiny their coats are. My border collie is 11 and acts like he’s 5. I’ve had people tell me he could be in a commercial for his beautiful, “luxurious” coat!

Wonderful food for my Herbie!

Herbie is a rescue and we could not find food that agreed with him. Finally we found Happy Dog food and he has been thriving for 2 years. I have suggested it to a friend who is also very happy with your product.
