The Dog Standards Difference

The Filthy 5

We avoid five categories of ingredients and cooking methods, which research has shown are contributing to dogs decreased life expectancy. With 50% of dogs today developing cancer after the age of ten, we never use cancer-causing ingredients or cooking methods.


Powders like “Chicken Meal” can contain meat from diseased livestock.

Feed-Grade Ingredients

Most dog food is made from ingredients that don't pass the same regulations that human food does.


Preservatives can keep pet foods shelf-stable for years.

Artificial Flavours & Colours

Processed dog food uses artificial flavours and colours to make their food taste more palatable and look 'better'.


Kibble is extremely processed under high-heat pressure causing carcinogens, a known cancer-causer.

How we made

dog food healthy:

Human-Grade Ingredients

We use 100% human-grade ingredients in our recipes. We lightly steam our food to ensure that it's easily digestible and more bioavailable, meaning that our dogs retain the nutrients they need to thrive.

Vet-Developed Plans

A vet-designed plan is customized to your dog’s individual needs. You can choose from a Topper or Full Meal Plan and select up to three AAFCO-compliant fresh recipes, to be delivered right to your door.

Made in Ontario, Canada

Our food is made in a HACCP and CFIA approved facility in Ontario using local provincial meat. We test every single batch produced for common pathogens - because dogs deserve safe food, too.

What pet parents are saying.

Peach + Vannia

A small white dog stands next to a 'Dog Standards' box.

"Ever since I started feeding Dog Standards, Peach has been so much happier and energetic. Her gut health seems to be doing so much better, with her digestion actually being consistent. I've also noticed eye discharge she used to get has disappeared. She now jumps for joy at every single meal, when it used to be a struggle to get her to eat."

Mary + Hugo

"I have THE pickiest dog on planet earth. I’ve tried raw, kibble, wet, air-dried dog food, he wouldn't touch any of it. We started my 9 month old puppy on Dog Standards and WOW… he LOVES this food. It is working so well with him. I love that it is fresh food and not processed. I am going to recommend this to all of my friends with fur babies. 1000/10."

Cheyene + Winchester

A smiling person balancing three colorful cereal boxes on their head.

"Dog Standards is amazing! I’m so sad that my dog went 2 years without this food. He is the pickiest Dachshund in the world and he is obsessed with this food. It looks and smells great - I can see the ingredients and it is all real food! My heart is happy knowing my dog is getting the best food possible."

We're a different breed.
