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.

    Happy with Happy Dog!

    My dog Bo loves Happy Dog. I made it for him when he was young then he had other food for a few years & he’s back on Happy Dog. It’s easy to make & I also like that I know what’s really in his food. I use ground turkey as the protein. Delivery is always fast & customer service is great. Thanks Happy Dog! Bo (& Jeannie)

    Jollee food

    The only “dog food” Jollee eats. We used to make the same type mix ourselves but it was very labor intensive. She can also eat eggs, bacon, French cut green beans, and cheddar cheese. Her vet is impressed with how well she does, and no weight concerns for the past 12 years.

    My dogs surround me while I’m making the food. They love it! Their coats are looking great and they are looking lean and fit.

    Two Dogs Loving Mealtime

    My dogs are 10 and 4 years old, adopted by us at 8 and 3. They have been on Happy Dog food since adopted and they are thriving. After eating the food, I think their favorite time is smelling the house when I am cooking a new batch. They know and get so excited. They love their food and we love keeping them happy and healthy!

    This food is GREAT!!

    I'm so glad I found Happy Dog Food again!!! I cooked for my Shiba Inu years ago and his blood work amazed my vet. He lived to be 12.5. I recently found them again and my little arthritic 13 yr old is running and playing again! I ordered frozen ducks from a farm in Oregon and added it to Happy Dog Food. My pups LOVE IT!!!
