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

Sweet Potatoes for Dogs

From fries to pancakes, to baked potatoes, to hummus, hashbrowns, cake, tater tots and more – sweet potatoes are the perfect multi-purpose treat that masquerades as a vegetable. Can dogs have sweet potatoes? You bet! Finding healthy (and tasty) alternatives to your favorite foods makes it so you can actually enjoy what you eat, while also providing you with the health benefits associated with these foods. Just like humans, dogs too want to enjoy the foods they eat. But you should be conscious of what you feed your pups to make sure that they are the healthiest and happiest versions… Continue reading

When it’s 7 degrees outside (or 107 degrees), going for a long walk with your pup might be out of the question.

So, here it is! 21 indoor exercise ideas for dogs of all ages. *Note- These will cover both physical… Continue reading

7 Tips for Road Trips with Dogs

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. And while road trips (mostly) go smoothly now, it definitely took some time for our dog, Lamon, to come around to spending countless hours in the car for sometimes even days in a row. Here are some of the things I have learned about road trips with dogs, and driving with dogs in… Continue reading

The ABCs of CBD for Dogs

I’m that dog mom that often looks at the consistency of my dog’s poop to evaluate their health and bowel movement. Can anyone relate? Just me? Like most dog parents, we would do anything for our pups to make sure that they are happy and healthy. Thriving even. So when something goes wrong we would do almost anything to help them. The trouble is sometimes knowing how to help them best and knowing what out there will work. If you are wanting to help your dog feel their best, CBD for dogs can help. All of our dogs are so… Continue reading

what to do if my dog doesn't like their food and is a picky eater | Pupford

What to Do If My Dog Doesn’t Like Their Food, A Guide to Picky Eaters

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?! Then, at age 26, my wife put into layman’s terms why I should eat beets. The vitamins, minerals, fiber, etc. blah blah blah. Meh, I was still uninterested and “stubborn and picky” – her words not mine. A few weeks ago, something miraculous happened though. My wife bought some beets from our local farmer’s market and whipped them up with some delicious goat… Continue reading

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
