Sniffing out the Naked Dog food
Written by Kevin Sando

Wouldn’t it be nice to take one more errand off your ever expanding list?

How about that monthly trip to the pet store where you find yourself wrestling with a huge bag of dog food?

Well, today we are going to be checking out a new service which may be just what you are looking for…

Introducing The Naked Dog

The Naked Dog is a healthy pet food retailer out of Southern California. Since their founding in 2014, they have quickly expanded to include 11 retail stores, and an online portal.

As part of their mission to provide the very  best nutrition for pets, The Naked Dog decided to start making their own dog food as well. Their vision was to make one of the highest quality foods on the market, at an affordable price – made right here in America!

They dubbed the line “Naked” meaning that it was stripped of all the garbage that is found in most commercial foods. After offering this food in bulk at each location for a few years, they decided to make it available to those outside the geographic regions of their retail stores…

The Naked Dog Box was born!

They reached out to see if our boys were willing to test it out, and are sponsoring this post so that we can help spread the word!

What is The Naked Dog Box?

The Naked Dog Box is a pet food delivery service that sends premium food straight to your door every two weeks.

That’s not all – each Naked Dog Box also comes with a surprise toy or treat! You can even avoid the pet store all together with optional add-on’s for other pet supplies that you are low on!

How Does it Work?

To get started simply visit their webpage and fill out the short form. You will be asked a few general questions about your dogs size, age and activity levels before they recommend a food formulation and caloric requirement for them.

Filling out the brief questionnaire for The Naked Dog Box

Next, you can move forward with their recommendation or choose another flavor option if you like.

That’s it! Your dogs food will be automatically shipped to your house every two weeks – though you can of course cancel at any time.

If you are a pet parent who tries to go to the store for food as little as possible and as a result buy your food in large bags, a delivery every two weeks may seem a little strange. You may be surprised to know that veterinarians and pet nutritionists recommend buying in quantities that your dog can consume in 2 weeks. Why you ask? Kibble is designed to be shelf stable but can go bad when stored improperly and is only optimally fresh and safest during this period of time!

You can also log on to make changes to your order or add other pet items you might need at the time such as poop bags or flea and tick medications!

Reviewing the ingredients in Naked Dog Food

Taking a Look at The Naked Dog Food Ingredients

The Naked Dog food is all natural, grain free, and gluten free. Best of all, you won’t find any fillers like potato, corn, or soy!

Naked is available in 3 different varieties, each with only a single protein source:

  • Chicken and Chickpea
  • Lamb and Brown Rice
  • Salmon and Chickpea

Our Naked Dog Box Experience

Filling out the order form took only a couple of minutes and left us with the recommendation of Salmon and Chickpea formula for Charlie.

We were amazed to see that the 2 week supply cost only $30 for a large dog! Those of you who are used to feeding premium foods will be shocked to see such an affordable price! Not to mention that every box comes with FREE shipping!

Each Box includes a meal sized scoop to make measuring your dogs food simple

The box arrived in just a couple of days and included our bag of food, as well as a bag of healthy treats and a toy for good measure!

Each box also comes with a scoop which has been sized just for your dog. 1 scoop = 1 meal served twice per day. It can’t get any easier than that.

MyDogLikes reviews The Naked Dog kibble

The food is packed in simple brown paper bags with no marking other than the production date and information. We love that this not only makes the bags more recyclable, but lowers the cost and fits nicely into their “Naked” branding.

Charlie was very eager to try it out and dug in as soon as we set the bowl down. He gobbled it up in no time showing us that this food had earned his seal of approval!

Charlie is clearly ready to eat!

Why MyDogLikes The Naked Dog Box

We always love companies and products that help to make a pet parents life easier; The Naked Dog Box is a great example of this. No more worries about running out when the pet store is closed – with the Naked Dog box you will always have the perfect amount of food on hand!

We also loved that each box contains a meal sized scoop so that you don’t have to worry about over or underfeeding. Pet obesity is a huge problem that can easily be corrected with proper measurement.

Last but not least are the ingredients! The Naked Dog Food gives your dog the nutrition they need without all the other junk – all at an extremely affordable price!

    • Sorry for the inconvenience, Sandy! That happens with their widgets sometimes – please try again later today!

  • I have run out of pet food and if I found the right product to try, I would consider a delivery service like this for peace of mind.

  • Yes I have run out of food & had to make a run out or make do for a night. I love my delivery.

  • i have run out of kibble, but have other stuff in the house. i keep other foods, canned, raw, freeze dried, sardines in water, on hand just in case of emergencies. my dogs are used to eating people food as well, since i used to cook all of their food for them.

  • I try not to run out by buying 50 lb bags of food. It’s been awhile since I’ve run out.

  • I would love to try, this service. I have run out of dog food and had to buy an alternative unhealthy brand, at the grocery store. My doggy has digestive issues and has been on a gluten free diet, for awhile now. Not a good situation to be in, when you know your fur child is not getting the proper diet.

  • we have ran out for a quick second ran out of food, and yes a service would help, we drive 40 minutes to get the pet food monthly

  • I have 6 animals that live in the house with us. We buy many extra large bags, containers, bottles and cans of food and supplements to make sure we don’t run out. Hauling all this gets more difficult for me every year. A delivery service would be a real luxury.

  • We have ran out and had to make night runs for food. I’m not sure how I feel about a delivery service though

  • I can’t even begin to count the number of times I’ve run out of dog (or cat) food. Some of the time it’s between paychecks so I scrounge up enough to get a small bag of something. Otherwise, I just run to the store. Luckily, we have several all-night stores just 2-3 miles from our house. However, a home delivery service does sound nice. With three rescued Treeing Walker Coonhounds who love to eat, I haul a LOT of 40# bags of kibble. Getting food right at my door would be a nice change – especially if it’s a high-quality food.

  • I have never run out but would certainly enjoy the convenience of a delivery service!

  • Being disabled, this would be a heavenly thing to have. I’m always having to find rides.. and, yes I have ran out..

  • I have health problems and am housebound, so yes this service would be wonderful.

  • I’m not sure as I have a tiny chorkie that is very picky. If it was something he likes, yes, this service would be very helpful.

  • I have run out of dog food, a few times actually. yes delivery would make things simpler. I just have to be able to afford something like that.

  • Yes I have run out of pet food before and had to buy low quality food from the gas station, so a service like this would be handy depending on full cost.

  • I have run out of pet food on a few occasions and it was very difficult to find the time to go purchase more. A delivery service would be a REALLY GREAT idea. It would save time and concern.

  • Have I ran out of my preferred dog food yes. I have backup food. This might be something trying to simplify always trying to remember to “get dog food”.

  • I have gotten low at times but never ran completely out. I suppose a subscription box would assure me of always having food unless for some reason it wasn’t delivered when due.

  • I have come close but, a couple of my neighbors need a delivery service more so than me seen as they tend to ask me for food when they run out LOL

  • I have never ever run out of my dog’s food. I always stock up when it is on sale.

  • Yes I have run out of Bailey dog food and I was making trips late at night to get
    his food. Yes this service would be helpful for me.

  • Oh my gosh a delivery service would be fantastic. I’ve run out so many times dragging myself out to go get some at the most inconvenient times.

  • I have sometimes had a near miss, so yes, a delivery service would be very convenient.

  • Yes, there has been a couple of times I have run out of food. Then I have to run out and find it. I would love a delivery service, not to run out again.

  • I have come close to running out of pet food and had to make an unplanned trip to pet store to get more. Have home delivery would be great.

  • Yes! I have run out of food on several occasions! I think that a delivery service is a wonderful idea 🙂

  • Running out is a fear of mine but, fortunately, it’s never happened. Being disabled in my shoulders and having 60lbs. dogs, purchasing large bags is a must but getting it home, help is always needed.

  • I have come really close to running out. I would consider a delivery service for dog food.

  • It would sure be easier to have a delivery service than to lug around the big bags of food I get my big dog. I have come close to running out before.

  • I have never ran out of dog food, but I have on treats. Jack wasn’t happy about that!

  • We’ve never run out completely. We’ve always had some sort of backup food available. A delivery service would make life a bit easier though.

  • I have never run out of my dog’s food. She would be OK as long as I fed her something though!
    We have not tried Naked Dog Box but I actually get my dog’s food delivered on a subscription now (The Honest Kitchen Concierge Club) because I get 10% off & points towards free products & I hate carrying dog food.

  • No, we keep close check on our pets food, we have never run out. This service would be awesome though.

  • Ive never run out of food, but its been close. This would be a good solution, and I like how mindful they are about being “naked”

  • I’ve never run out of food yet, but this is a great idea for if I ever do.

  • I haven’t run out of the dogs’ food, but I have out of the kitties – and they were not happy campers! Course, if they weren’t little piggies it wouldn’t have happened! 😉 This could definitely come in handy though.

  • I have never ran out of my dogs food but I have come close. Delivery would make it easier

  • This is interesting. I do run out of dog food at times. I might just consider this!

  • Never run out of my dogs food – wouldn’t do that! Delivery service would be wonderful, not having to lug that weight around and getting it into the house!

  • Im pretty good about getting things before we get too low, but my fiancé’s dog eats different food than mine, and he sometimes runs out. having a delivery service would be amazing!

  • I have run out of pet food both cat and dog at one time or another. I am totally into deliveries of all kinds now (the Amazon effect); why not pet food?

  • When I run out of dogfood, I’ll do things like feeding my dog leftover meatloaf or other forms of people food. I’t would be nice to have a delivery service for my dog’s chow time instead of driving cross town to buy a bag of kibble or chunks.

  • This would be wonderful. What a wonderful service and healthy for our pug

  • Yes, I have run out of dog food for Tillie. When that happened, I’d either give her some cat food (she did eat it – lol) or some human food like rice, chicken, fish, and cooked veggies. She loves the human food, so I try not to run out of dog food. A subscription like this would be nice.

  • Certainly a delivery service would make things easier! Not having to worry about it would be great.

  • I never run out of pet food.. I take my dog’s food very seriously.

  • Yrs it would be nice if I could get cat food and dog food delivered.

  • Sometimes I feel like we’re going to run out, but someone in the household saves the day! I would love to try a delivery 🙂

  • A delivery service like the Naked Dog Box would absolutely save me from running out of dog food! It’s happened more times than I can count. This service would be a life saver!

  • We have used dog food drop shipments in the past but discontinued it due to expense. The naked Dog could be the solution.

  • I’ve never run out of dog food – but I have had to trek across town at midnight to make sure my dog had breakfast…

  • I have run out of food so I try to make a very conscience mental note. An auto delivery service would take some weight off my shoulders about it tho.

  • Yep I have run out of pet food before and had to make a run. A subscription service would make things much easier.

  • Yes I’ve run out of food which is not a good thing in this small town where I live – not much variety. This delivery service would definitely work.

  • I have run out of dog food and would love to have a delivery service like this one.

  • We do have a auto order for dog food, but until we were able to accurately estimate the time needed between estimates, we did occasionally run out of food. Then we needed to adjust again when our elderly Great Dane died in her sleep.

  • Who hasn’t run out of dog food at one point or another? I think the difference for me though is that I’m 60 miles away from my dog food brand… so venison and rice homemade is what they get, but to have dog food delivered? that would be amazing!

  • My parents have only because it gets lost in translation if someone dropped off a bag of food so this would work for them.

  • I have never run out of Down today but I am definitely interested in the delivery subscription service. This seems like a very reasonable and exciting thing to Dr.. Thanks for the info

  • I have not ever run out of my pet’s food, but a delivery service like this would be fabulous.
