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.

    Dog gone good.

    The directions seemed a bit ambiguous regarding the nutrient packet. Wasn’t sure when to add during cooking or measured after and added to cooked food. I did both ways. The packet didn’t last through the servings my vet wanted me to serve per meal. I definitely learned the hard way soaking overnight is not effective at all to get ahead start on the cooking process. Lol.

    Both my Sealyham's love it. They get excited before I put the bowl down and then eat it so fast, then look at me as if saying "more please".

    I prepare it with ground turkey that I brown in the pot and then add ingredients as directed. It is so easy. I make it in 4 cup batches. That lasts about a week. They love it and I know they are getting good food without any unnatural or chemicals. Thanks for providing this great dog food. Mary

    whole grain

    I have been a Happy Dog customer for 5 years and all three schnauzers love it, I add ground beef roast or turkey also like baked chicken but they have told me they like dark meat the best. Then for a little added flavor I add chicken liver oh boy now we have something good.

    My doggy is Happy

    My dog loves the original dog food. Every morning when he gets up he goes right to the refrigerator and waits for his food. He has never done that.

    Appetite stimulent

    My Roxy, 13year old lab, was recently diagnosed with cancer. She had weight loss, no appetite, and general fatigue as well as abnormal renal labs. My vet recommended Happy Dog. I combine it with lean beef and have been very successful. She still has her 2 daily short walks, energized and loves her mealtime. Thanks for a very good product as well as a competent vet.

    A new experience, in a good way!

    One of my dogs was not liking the kibble he was raised on and the breeder suggested adding wet food. He quickly got tired of the canned variety when a friend suggested we try Happy Dog Food. She fosters rescue dogs and says all her dogs have loved it. Both of our dogs have been happy with the new food; no more half eaten meals! We like how we make the food so know what is going into it and the ingredients list is simple, whole foods.

    Winston loves Happy Dog Food

    Happy Dog is easy to make. I made the Whole Grain Original as instructed, but added pan-browned ground turkey after the Happy Dog cooled. Winston enjoys it, and it has allowed to cut back on his kibble, which was a goal of mine.

    Both my Sealyham's love it

    My male, 6 year old Sealyham Terrier was diagnosed with acute Pancreatitis about 6 weeks ago. A fellow Sealy owner recommended Happy Dog food, saying she has given it to her dog for over 2 years since it had pancreatitis. My boy loved it, and he had been very picky and not wanting to eat for 2 weeks. He is healthy now and I am continuing to give him Happy Dog food twice a day. My 14 year old Sealy loves it too. I plan to continue making this wonderful food for both of them.
