For future orders, you can place them with us at barkful.com. Stay tuned for when we start our automatic deliveries through our subscription.
Fresh means you're always getting a new batch of food for your dog, made from only high quality ingredients. When we say that our food is human-grade we mean that the ingredients and processes used to make our recipes make it fit for human-consumption. In other words, you are feeding your pet something that we would feel comfortable eating too!
At Barkful, we exclude all artificial preservatives, additives, and fillers that are found in commercial kibble and canned dog foods.
Our meals are made fresh every single week in a prepared USDA/FDA inspected kitchen in Atlanta, Georgia. We use all natural ingredients sourced from local suppliers, and cook the food at low temperatures to lock in all of the important nutrients your dog needs to thrive. Once cooked, we package each customized portion into vacuum sealed bags and freeze them before delivering them right to your doorstep.
All of our recipes were formulated by a team of vet-nutritionists and assessed by a team of veterinarians. Each recipe is completed and balanced for all life stages( including adult and puppy) according to the nutritional levels established by AAFCO.
For transitioning to a 100% Barkful Diet, do it over 7 days.
We recommend a 7-day transition period. For 1-2 days, feed your dog a ration of 75% old diet to 25% Barkful. On days 3-4, feed your dog a ratio of 50% old diet to 50% Barkful. On days 5-6, a ratio of 75% Barkful to old diet should be served. On the 7th day, transition fully to Barkful.
*Keep in mind that every dog is different. Should your dog have difficulty during the first few days, try cutting back on the amount of Barkful you are mixing and stretch the transition period to 10 days.
Of course, you can! This is a great way to give your dog the nutrients of freshly cooked food, while keeping most of their current diet. No transition is needed, simply replace some of your dog's current food with Barkful.
See our feeding guide here for more detailed information on how to feed!
Accidentally forgot to defrost enough food for the day? No problem! Just put some warm or room-temperature (not hot!) water in a bowl and submerge an unopened pack of food for 5-10 minutes. Once the food is soft and malleable, it’s ready to eat!
Most of our customers purchase 2 weeks worth of food at times, so they don't run out of food or have to buy continuously.
We vacuum seal our food so that it can stay fresher longer. Our food won’t expire for up to 6 months in the freezer. Make sure to keep the food frozen while it’s being stored! Only move the food to your refrigerator 1-2 days before feeding it to your dog. Our fresh dog food is safe to eat up to 5-7 days after it's opened and placed back in the refrigerator.
We deliver every Tuesday and Friday, milkman-style. For your first order, you will receive a complementary insulated tote with your order. For future orders, you will place out your tote for us and we will replenish with fresh dog food & treats. It's so simple!
Live in apartment or condo? We can deliver in brown paper bags to your door or concierge.
*You can also opt to pick up your orders at the farmers markets on the weekends.
