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.

Anita Ketchie (Stockton, US)
Mother of 2 finicky spoiled dogs who like Happy Dog.

I cook the Happy Dog mixture-- 2 1/4 cup dry mix with 8 cups water. I sous vide 2 pounds of chicken breast to 165 degrees. I then shred the chicken breast into the cooked mixture of Happy Dog. I warm my pup's portions in a non-stick pan before they eat. I am worried a bit because my dogs will not eat the food if I put the supplement powder on top of the food--so I have not been using the supplement. The vet says they are both healthy. I was using Farmer's Dog beef flavor prior to switching to Happy Dog (that was the only flavor they liked). My vet did not approve of one of the first ingredients in the Farmer's Dog formula and he recommended Happy Dog. I have been using Happy Dog ever since.

Rex loves it! Best he’s ever had!

10 yr old Rex joined us a month ago. He was rehomed from my step daughter in Hawaii after she adopted him at 8 yrs. She has a rambunctious 5yr old son & 1 yr old crazy full of energy Labordoodle. Rex was stressed with all the chaos so brought him home to California - we are both retired w/resident Yorkie mix Buddy & 2 cats. Was a circus for the first few weeks but all is well. Was already feeding Buddy Happy Dog Food & Rex took to it right away. He is living his best life with us and eating the best food ever!
