Training Treats for Dogs: Everything You Need to Know in 2019

I’m sitting here writing this two days after our dog became sick from what we believe to be human feces at a park. Cute, I know. He’s better now, but my point here is that I know all too well the effects that certain dog treats (and things that definitely are not foods, yet your dog seems to love to eat anyway (eye roll)) can have on their stomachs. The thing is, most of us don’t feed our dog poop, (hopefully all of us) but still sometimes the treats we can give our pups don’t agree with their stomachs, or… Continue reading

I’m no stranger to road trips with dogs. From Utah to Oregon, Oregon to Utah, Utah to South Carolina, South Carolina to Florida, Florida to South Carolina, and South Carolina back to Utah (plus MANY little weekend trips) we have had our four-legged pup by our sides.

Dog & Dog Parent Approved

The proof is in the tail wags.

See what some happy pups (and their parents) have to say about Pupford!

Goldendoodle in Love

Our Goldendoodle doesn't even like food. She won't eat peanut butter and used to eat her previous food very sparingly. She LOVES her Pupford food so much. I've never seen her have so much healthy energy and enjoy eating so much STRONGLY recommend!   Spencer

My Dogs Inhale the Food

My girls LOVE this stuff. They inhale it. The bigger girl was starting to get picky... No more worries! I can't wait for them to try the beef!!! Leah

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

Pups Gobble Them Up

Our dogs, who can be picky, gobbled them right up when offered. We train dogs on agility and they work very hard to be accurate in running, cornering, etc, so this joint supplement will do well to keep them up and moving. Al
