Ingredients & Benefits of our “Complete Nutrition Diets” Trucker’s Mutt-Loaf and Penelope’s Grain Free Feast
At The Good Dog Food Company, we use only the very best ingredients in our dog food.
All-Natural Grass-Fed Beef and Beef Liver: The beef used in our recipes comes from cattle raised in open pastures, and never exposed to growth hormones or antibiotics. The farmers lovingly tend to their heard, taking pride in the quality of their farms.
All-Natural Chicken and Chicken Liver: Our Oregonian farmers raise truly free-range chickens, meaning that, rather than being locked in a coop, they roam open patches of land. The chickens are not fed growth hormones, antibiotics, or corn, and are raised exclusively for our recipes.
Almond Meal: Almonds are high in protein, fiber, calcium, magnesium, potassium, Vitamin E, and other antioxidants. In addition to all this, they also help prevent osteoporosis and keep blood pressure regulated.
Organic Brown Rice: A fantastic source of fiber for colon health and bran for essential B vitamins and minerals, this natural whole grain provides high-quality complex carbohydrates for energy.
Flax Meal: Flax is the most easily absorbed vegetable fatty acid for dogs, and is rich in Omega 3s, protein, dietary fiber, and antioxidants. It also helps keep your dog’s coat and skin soft and shiny.
Organic Oats: These oats provide healthy whole grains and B-complex vitamins, fiber, and complex carbohydrates for healthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
Organic Whole Grains: Our whole grains contain all three parts of the grain – the bran, germ, and the endosperm. Whole grains contain phytochemicals and B vitamins, Vitamin E, magnesium, iron, and fiber, as well as other valuable antioxidants that you can’t find in most fruits and vegetables, all of which are extremely beneficial to your dog. Our whole grains include barley, brown rice, bulgur, oatmeal, and oat bran.

Human-Grade Steamed Bone Meal: our finely ground domestic cattle bones have been pasteurized for complete safety, and are in fact high enough quality for human consumption. This provides an excellent source of phosphorous and calcium.
Brewer’s Yeast: These probiotics, identified as “live microbial supplements,” benefit the host by improving their natural microbial balance.
Cod Liver Oil: This rich source of DHA, EPA, and Vitamins A and D is beneficial to dogs’ skin, bones, teeth, joints, cardiovascular system, and digestive tract. Our Cod Liver Oil comes directly from the pure waters of Norway, and is bottled right at the source.
