When I was a kid I absolutely HATED beets. And that hatred (similar to how much most dogs hate bath time) continued on for years. I mean, if I could eat Starbursts, why would I choose beets?!

Dog Loves the Taste

We got the supplements for our 2-year-old Saint Bernard. He's not having any joint pain yet, but we wanted to get him started early. He loves the taste every time we give them to him. Barrett

My Dogs LOVE Pupford!

One of my dogs is a picky eater and now she is excited when she hears the bag come out, she sits and waits for her bowl and then she spends a little extra time, licking her bowl! Pupford smells so good we all want to eat it! Marcia
