A high quality pre-packaged raw diet dog food without HPP made with 100% natural ingredients, inspected by the U.S. US and USDA 26% approved. Developed in conjunction with a world-renowned doctorate in animal nutrition. I do DIY raw feed, which is easier and less expensive than commercial raw food.
I am raising five dogs on a raw food diet and I find that ordering bulk food and preparing food in bulk is the best thing for me and I share my recipes for raw food for dogs on my blog. I also maintain a nutrient spreadsheet that helps me better understand what my dogs need in their diet. This spreadsheet is free for Keep the Tail Wagging subscribers. The other day I received an email from a new raw food that didn't know where to find raw dog food.
When I started feeding it raw, I had no idea where to start. It never occurred to me that I could find raw products at local pet stores or that I could prepare meals myself. Store Locator is loading from Storemapper. Yahoo closed its groups, which used many raw food cooperatives; I have disabled those links and will update them as soon as I know the new home of the cooperatives.
Before joining my local raw food cooperative, I was about to feed kibble again because my dogs didn't do well with chicken and buying meat at the supermarket was expensive. In addition to the lowest prices, a raw food cooperative is a community of like-minded local pet parents and a valuable resource if you are new to raw feeding or are an experienced feeder. The store owners I've met over the years know the pet food industry very well, so not only can I count on the food in their stores to be of high quality, if a brand changes their food, the pet store owner will be aware of it. There are some raw food brands on the list; I've included them to offer more options to people who don't have many sources in their area.
If this sounds like you, here is a short list of places where you can find raw (pre-made) commercial dog food or ingredients for homemade raw food. A raw food cooperative is an organization that facilitates bulk purchases of raw pet food for local raw feeders. A raw food cooperative is an organization that allows members to place bulk orders and take advantage of lower prices. The raw feeders directory was created by Kimberly Gauthier, founder of Keep the Tail Wagging, a blog about raw feeding and raising dogs naturally.
The following is a list of raw food cooperatives that I have found through online research and other raw feeders.
