FEED RESPONSIBLY

Providing your dog with the appropriate amount of calories is a proven way to prolong their life. Dogs that maintain a healthy body weight live 5-10% longer than overweight dogs.

Calculating the right portion is critical, as feeding just ½ cup more per meal is the equivalent of feeding your dog an extra 6” sub sandwich every day!

I love all their dog food!

Thank you, Laura!

My 11-year-old Corgi is thriving on Petaluma dog food!

I believe that without this dog food, my current pooch would have died early from cancer as was the case with all my other pets. I am so happy to have found Petaluma. Plus, I love the personal contact with the company's founder.

Hi Donna,

What a darling corgi! My first dog growing up was a corgi and I have had a lifelong soft spot for those little-legged pups. We are so happy to hear that your senior corgi is doing so well and we wish them many more years of healthy aging. Please feel free to reach out any time if we can be helpful.

All the best,
Caroline

Out of stock first time trying to reup

Have used for about a month and has seemed fine for senior dog. When trying to reup, they're out of stock of large bags because of "an issue with the baking equipment at our bakery partner," so not super reliable, it seems. Not great to not be able to buy the same food or to have to buy the cost ineffective little bag

Hi Kevin,

I am so sorry for this poor introduction to Petaluma. The outage with our bakery was very frustrating and the first time we had experienced this type of issue with our baking partner, which is among the largest of its kind in the U.S.

To avoid stock issues going forward, we are onboarding with a second bakery this fall to provide back-up capacity and are also doing larger production runs with our primary bakery to hold more inventory going forward. We know its not acceptable to run out of food for your pup, and we are disappointed that this was your first experience with Petaluma as a company.

We are fully in stock of our senior food and hope we can serve you and your dog in the future. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and share yoru feedback with us.

All the best,
Caroline (Petaluma co-founder)

Happy with product and service

Ordering food is seamless, and my dog loves the food. She loves most food, but I’m very happy with the ingredients and quality of the food.

Hi Jill,

We are so happy to be a part of your routine and your dog's mealtime. Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to leave a review - as a small biz, it truly means so much to have your support.

All the best,
Caroline

My dog loves this

My 14 year old husky/border Collie loves this food. After struggling with many food allergies on standard dog food, and not the cheap varieties either, we switched to vegan food and his allergies cleared. Problem was finding one he liked. We've tried a number of popular brands and then found Petaluma. He actually begs for his food now. He is at a healthy weight and is able to stay active. Even back to chasing squirrels. Great product.

Hi Tracy,

Thank you so much for sharing your Petaluma experience! We are so delighted to hear that your 14 year old pup is staying spry and youthful on this formula - that's exactly what we love to hear! My own 12-year old pup is on the senior formula and I like to joke we need a 'decaf' version - he's as active and energetic as he was a decade ago :)

We are so grateful for your support and are delighted that your pup is spending his golden years thriving and eating a food he loves.

Thank you for supporting our small business - we are so grateful for your support.
Caroline
