Vet formulated, real dog food, made fresh and delivered.
Keeping your dog as young as a pup.
Congratulations! Having a puppy is one of the most wonderful things in life! You are going to have so much play time, laughs and cuteness overload! Being a puppy Mom or Dad is a huge responsibility, and all new mom’s and dad’s want to make sure they start their puppy off right.
Puppies grow quick. Within 12 months, they are generally considered adult dogs, so you have that period of time to ensure that they have been given the nutrients they need to help with their growth.
Providing your pup with proper nutrition is critical. They need this to build strong bones, teeth, add muscle, grow to their full potential, as well as minimize the risk of developing allergies and provide them with the energy for their learning and importantly, play time.
Puppies need food that provides them with a combination of healthy proteins, fats, carbohydrates, minerals, vitamins and water.
These are essential nutrients to help them grow and function. You can get these nutrients from a number of different pet foods, however it is important to know the reality of what else is in this food.
We are advocates of feeding your dog whole foods. Below in the 'Resources' section, we have outlined some links for some additional blogs for you to read.
Puppies and dogs require different food sources for their nutrients. They get this from a variety of proteins, fruits and vegetables, just like we do. Feeding fresh foods allows your dog to get natural macro and micro nutrients in their diet from each ingredient. This is especially important to ensure that they are not getting these through non-natural sources such as synthetic vitamins, preservatives and additives.
Commercial pet foods (such as kibble) are a form of processed food, and there are a few key issues with feeding this to your pup.
1. Many contain synthetic vitamins to supplement the loss of natural nutrients
These are often not bioavailable to our pups.
2. The claim on your packaging of ‘complete and balanced diet’ is not entirely accurate.
It's impossible for our body to absorb every mineral and vitamin we need from one single meal, just like us.
3. Contain preservatives and additives to help give the food a long shelf life (eeeek!).
Consider the process it took to get the ingredients into these perfectly shaped biscuits and then a synthetic coating on the outside to make it palatable for your pup.
4. Nutrients from each ingredient is stripped away
The ingredients are cooked at such high temperatures (this is called extrusion) and they then need to add a lot of additional ingredients that you can’t pronounce into your dog's meals to make the claim that it's healthy.
Another way to think about it is by considering what you feed a baby. You start with milk, and then progress to whole foods - fruits, vegetables and proteins. You wouldn’t feed your baby processed foods from a shelf, because they need real ingredients to help them grow.
It’s actually the same with adults - we wouldn’t eat processed foods every day because we know that it’s not healthy for us (although we do every now and then of course) and will cause us longer term issues such as obesity, and other illnesses. The same principles apply to your dog.
Once your Puppy is 4 weeks old they can start to get weaned off milk and on to solids. This is where your role as a dog Mom or Dad becomes critical.
We recommend your pup eats whole foods, not processed foods.
Puppy Gang Fresh Foods has 4 meals that contain only proteins, fruits, vegetables and organic supplements to give your pup the macro and micro nutrients they need.
Dogs of all ages need a combination of muscle meat, organ meat, calcium, fruit and vegetables for a balanced diet. All of our ingredients are steamed to preserve the nutrients, and remove the risk of bacteria. They are then blended together, and frozen, and delivered to your door in the Toronto area.
You can give your pup a different meal every couple of days so that they get exposure to the different proteins, fruits and vegetables to help build their immune system and reduce the risk of allergies developing as well as to get a variety of different nutrients in their diet.
Our meals are great for dogs of all ages, however a puppy will have different quantities that they need to eat to help them grow.
Up to 6 months: 3-4 times a day if possible.
After 6 months: twice a day.
Puppies need higher calories than a standard adult dog calculation for feeding. This is because they need the extra calories to help their quick growth, particularly in the first 5-6 months.
We can help you to calculate how much to feed your growing pup on a whole foods diet. Email us at email@example.com

"My rescue pup has had many health issues and we've struggled to find the right food for her. We ran into puppy gang fresh foods at woofstock and can never look back !! The whole team is so sweet and all their flavours are a hit with my 7 month old puppy and even my family's senior spaniel has been munching it up! Whether your dog has any digestive or other health issues or is a healthy doggo I'd recommend this food!!
