Overall Rating: 8 / 10 (Very good)

The Farmer's Dog is an excellent choice for consumers seeking a nutritious, down-to-earth meal plan for their canine family members. The company's meals are AAFCO-compliant and are made from human-grade ingredients in facilities that are maintained to human-kitchen requirements. Menus are adjustable depending on specific needs and goals and are designed by a board-certified veterinary nutritionist. Although at present the company offers only three entrees, these should be more than sufficient to please most canine palates.
