Of the dozens of premium dog food manufacturers we’ve met with, interviewed, and researched, only a small handful stand out as one that The Dogington Post would confidently recommend to our readers.
How sad is that?
Turns out, we’re not the only ones that have a problem with the lack of high quality, healthy dog foods available. So does Merrick Pet Care, the family company most famous for the gourmet canned food, Grammy’s Pot Pie, made with fresh vegetables and fruits.
For the past several years the company has been reinventing its recipes after collecting the latest nutrition research, reviewing farmers and suppliers, and conducting quality assurance with its expert panel of dog taste-testers. The result of that effort is a “revolution in a dog bowl,” a mission to reach the highest standards of nutritional excellence.
And, best of all? They want other manufacturers to step up to the plate, too. That’s why they’ve started a revolution. A Doggupy Movement, if you will.
2012 has been a huge year for dog food recalls causing an “awakening” of dog parents to really think about what they’re feeding their furriest family members. And while many pet food companies are making improvements, Greg Shearson, CEO of Merrick Pet Care told The Dogington Post, “You’ve got to continue to move forward; you’ve got to do a better job. Because people demand it.”
Watch Merrick’s cleverly entertaining “Tails from the Revolution” video below, to see what the Doggupy Movement is all about:
We agree. It IS time to demand better dog food.
