FAQs

Doggy Grub is made in South Australia. Our ingredients and handling methods are human grade, cooked in small batches and packaged in a human grade facility. There is no regulation in pet food, so we have decided to hold ourselves to the same guidelines, testing and validation as human food.

Doggy Grub is a small, family owned company, committed to changing the way we feed our dogs, one bowl at a time, while supporting local farmers.

95% of our ingredients are sourced in Australia. We believe in supporting non-intensive farming, that is why we select meat whose farming has a low impact on the environment such as kangaroo (free-range), carp fish and chicken.


We are based in South Australia and orders are distributed daily, Australia wide.

All of Doggy Grub meals are Complete & Balanced, meeting the required nutritional levels established by AAFCO for adult maintenance or growth.

The meals are safe to feed to puppies but we recommend using them as a partial diet, mixing with puppy kibbles or other foods, until your pup has reached 12 months of age.

After that, you can feed Doggy Grub as a full diet if you wish.

The Doggy Grub meals contain NO artificial colours, flavours, or preservatives and NO fillers. Our meals consist only of whole meat (no meat meal) and all our ingredients are human grade.

There are no hidden ingredients, only what you see listed on the ingredient list.

Dogs need time to adapt to new foods. We recommend introducing Doggy Grub to your dog’s diet slowly and in increasing amounts over a period of 8 days. This will prevent tummy upset.

The trick is to mix the new food with your dog’s old food.

Your dog’s stools will naturally change, but if your dog starts experiencing diarrhea or vomiting, go back a step to when the issue was not occurring and rest there an extra day before moving up.

The Doggy Grub casseroles are already cooked and ready-to-eat giving you many options! It can be fed as a daily meal, as a meal topper added to kibbles or as a rotational meal to add variety.

It can also be served as an occasional treat to a good boy or good girl!

We genuinely love all dogs and we believe a wholefood diet is the best approach for your pet. We continue to see amazing health transformation in dogs being fed fresh food.


All our meals are developed alongside vets and pet nutritionists and cooked with human grade meat, veggies and a natural boost powder that will ensure your dog is getting all the nutrients and vitamins needed.

Doggy Grub meals contain NO artificial colours, flavours, or preservatives and NO fillers. Only ingredients you know and can recognize! You will see (and smell!) the difference in the quality of our meals as soon as you open a pack.

We have a fantastic success rate amongst the pickiest of eaters, who always polish clean their Doggy Grub bowl. That’s because fresh food smells and tastes amazing and ultimately makes your dog feel so much better: better number 2s, more energy, healthier coat and shiny eyes.

Pet food is essentially unregulated and standards are pretty low when it comes to commercial dog food (and not mandatory!). That is why we insist on cooking your dog’s meals with the same standards as human grade food. After all, dogs are man’s best friend so why should they be treated any differently?

Ultimately, pet healthcare decisions should be based upon your research and in partnership with a qualified holistic pet healthcare professional.

The information we provide on this website is not intended as medical advice and we're simply sharing what we believe is the best based on our knowledge, research and experience on the dogs we have fed.

Doggy Grub uses a cleaver packaging technology, called a retort pouch, that enables you to store your casseroles at ambient temperatures while keeping the food fresh and moist, and without the use of preservatives.

Simply store in a cupboard or pantry, under 35°C and away from direct sunlight. Refrigerate once opened and consume within 3 days.

If you're not home for delivery, no problem! Your parcel will be left at your shipping address, following your delivery instructions (if any entered at checkout).

Our meals can remain at ambient temperature (under 41°C) and will be left in the shade when possible.

Doggy Grub is not responsible for packages once they have been scanned and delivered.

No objective scientific evidence has yet demonstrated that feeding grain free, natural, holistic, organic, or raw diets to otherwise healthy pets, when compared to conventional diets, leads to a better outcome for the pet.

However, some results speak for themselves. We have chosen this type of diet based on the incredible results in health and vitality we have observed, first hand, on various dogs and our own.

We do hope there will soon be scientific evidence that can support these results but until then, it is the responsibility of the owner to do their own research and see what works best for their dog.

Grinkles add a boost of health and flavour to your dog’s meals.

Grinkles can be added to any foods, not just Doggy Grub casseroles. Simply sprinkle on top of your wet food or mix in a bit of water, coconut oil or mashed banana, when feeding dry food.
Grub sprinkles should be kept in a cupboard, away from direct sunlight.

Portion size depend on your dog’s breed, age and activity levels. We provide a feeding guide on our product page so you can get an idea on how much to feed your dog.

When you placed your first order you received an invite to create an account. The email collection for the order is separate from creating an account. Since your account was never verified that is why you are getting an error message.
