Muffie enjoys Happy Dog food

I originally ordered the HD food express by mistake. I requested the original which is what Muffie has been eating. Upon waiting for a replacement I had to use the express, Muffie throughly enjoyed the food. The express is easier to use there's little to no cooking involved.

Happy Dog Food for Smith

The food arrived packaged in heavy zip lock bags inside a sturdy cardboard box. Instructions are easy to follow and our boy "Smith" loves it. We prepare enough 3/4 cup servings to last about 20 days. We freeze the food in 3/4 cup blocks and keep a few days worth at a time in the refrigerator. When we feed Smith we take one serving. place in the microwave for about 35 seconds and breakfast or dinner is served....and he LOVES IT!

Wonderful dog Food!

After rescuing our dog we tried numerous brands of dog food trying to find one he liked. Happy dog Food Express was the one. I followed the directions on the bag BUT what works the best for our dog is to mix the Express with water and THEN add the meat right before I serve it to our dog. He tends to eat more of the Happy Dog Food this way which means he is pooping regularly.

I have a pitbull boxer mix who is riddled with allergies and digestive issues. She has an intolerance to processed dog food. I've tried other base mixes before she hates them but with this food she eats crazy fast. I've never seen her like food so much! I was really worried she was going to have issues with this new food just like all the other foods I've tried but nothing no problems! She is the pickiest dog in the world so this food must taste great I am definitely telling everybody I can about it.

Happy Dog Food for Smith

Our experience has been great. Our dog "Smith" is an older Sheltie that loves to eat. My wife & I decided we should feed him something better than the basic dog foods. We had a friend that had experience with Happy Dog Food and since she recommended it we decided to try it for ourselves. There is the preparation time to consider but all in all we are very glad we started using Happy Dog Food. Smith loves it and he does seem to have a little more pep in his step.

Happy Dog Food

I've used this dog food for 10 years and my dogs love it. I've added salmon, chicken and occasionally beef. I switch it up from time to time if they seem to get bored.

Cody loves Happy Dog Food.

We have been using this grain variety for 9 years now and our dogs love this as an addition to their dry and wet food. It seems to give them a complete, full feeling of satisfaction
