Being a huge dog lover, I see lots of dog companies everywhere I look. Every time you look to buy any product for What makes them special.
There are many things that make a company great, but for me it starts at the beginning. Who, what, where and why.
Who started this company and why?
I came across a company that I really like that I want to share with you. This company is called TruDog!
Who are they?
This company was founded by a lady named Lori R. Taylor. She started this company because she sadly lost her best friend Truman her Great Dane at a very young age from a terminal illness.
Watching her beloved dog slowly pass away, left her feeling guilty that somehow she had done something wrong.
She thought hard about what she could have done differently. Slowly going through all the things that she had done, she landed on what was it that she had been feeding Truman.
We have all gone through the battle of deciding what kind of dog food to give our dogs. Most dog foods look flashy and claim to have all the good ingredients that we need to feed our dogs.
As we know, not all dog food is created equal. Lori realized what she had actually been feeding Truman throughout his short life really wasn’t the very best dog food. Looking through all the current dog food choices, she really didn’t find that super healthy option that she was looking for. At that moment, she vowed that she was going to change the dog food industry by coming up with her own line of healthy dog food options.
She decided to call her company TruDog in honor of her beloved Truman. A great tribute to her dog and a cool name for the company that is easy to remember and super catchy. Plus I love that the O in dog is a dog paw. LOL!
What makes there food different?
Their food is a completely different take on traditional dog food. What makes them so different? Well there food is a true raw dog food diet. No that doesn’t mean that there is any cooking involved at all, no thawing frozen food, or even any need to refrigerate it.
The beauty of this raw dog food diet, is that you can just store it in the pantry, like any other dog food. It comes in a completely resealable packaging, so once you open it, you can just close up the package.
They offer freeze-dried and dehydrated options to choose from. All the food is made in the USA and made with real meat. Using real cuts of meat, and without any fillers, grains, preservatives or color in any of there products. The food is flash froze which locks in the freshness.
When you get the food, you literally just add water to it and BOOM! the food comes to life. This food is easy to digest, all natural and hypoallergenic. You can give it to any dog, puppy, or senior dog. There is no limit to who can benefit from this amazing food.
What are the choices.
Deciding which option is best for you is the next tough choice. There are a few different options that you can chose between. As I mentioned, they offer a freeze-dried dog food or a dehydrated dog food. What is the real difference between the two.
First off freeze-dried food means that they remove about 98-99% of all the moisture content while dehydrated is created by removing 90-95 % of all the moisture.
Freeze-dried dog food also has a longer shelf life than dehydrated.
So let’s break down the kinds of dog food options you can choose from:
FREEZE-DRIED AKA FEED ME
This line of dog food comes in 2 different flavors. FEEDME Beef or FEEDME Turkey.
FEEDME Beef – contains real beef meat, beef organs, beef bones, beef blood and omega oils which really helps with your dogs digestion and naturally occurring tocopherols.
FEEDME Turkey – contains ground turkey with bone, turkey heart, turkey liver, herring oil, D-Alpha Tocopherol and mixed Tocopherols.
Just 10 ounces of FEEDME is equal to 2 1/2 pounds of dog kibble. It comes in a 10 oz bag which is equal to 6 cups or a 14 oz bag that is equal to 7.5 cups of food
DEHYDRATED AKA Rawgo

TruDog as a company, has really thought of everything possible to help provide the best options for your dogs overall health.
Whether it is a full raw dog food diet, dental health, nutritional toppers or digestive health, this company has it all. They have forgotten nothing.
They even have products to help groom and keep your dog clean. Providing ear cleaning, your dogs eyes, shampoo and first aid products.
A few of my favourite accessories that they sell, are the feeder bowls that are designed in a way that makes your dog eat slowly, rather than gorge the food down. The other one is a cool collapsible water dish that you can take with you on your travels. The bowl come in a 5 pack and are very reasonably priced.
TruDog is a company that has hundreds of positive reviews from people that have seen positive changes in there dogs since trying there products
One customer review that states that “before switching to this brand of food there dog was an extremely picky eater. Now can’t wait to eat their food.”
The bottom line is that this company was created from a tragic situation and put there whole heart into really making sure that everything they create is done with your dogs health as the most important target in mind.
This is not a company that just created a product to make money.
I hope that you enjoyed my review of the TruDog company and all their amazing products. I would love to hear your thoughts and comments below.
