Have you considered feeding a fresh dog food to your pups? As some of you know, we are constantly researching the best foods for our dogs to make sure they don’t just thrive, but are excited to eat. While most dogs look forward to meal time, the entire world revolves around food to malamutes. Human food is especially interesting and is constantly begged for, making it a major treat when I make dog safe food with all natural ingredients. Recently though, I have wondered if it was possible to make my own healthy dog food for the girls. I mean, who wouldn’t want their dog eating homemade real food? Once I started researching though, I was amazed at everything that was involved, if you want a nutritious diet balanced for your dog. Luckily, while we were at BlogPaws, we were introduced to an amazing dog food delivery service that makes perfectly portioned, gently cooked dog food – NomNomNow.
What is NomNomNow
If you are anything like us, you are probably wondering: Who is NomNomNow? Is it really possible to have homemade food for your dog delivered right to your door? Yes it is! For those who haven’t heard, NomNomNow is a fresh dog food delivery service that delivers gently cooked dog food right to your door. Each of their recipes is certified by their own veterinarian, Dr Justin Schmalberg, one of the top pet-nutritionists in the US. They offer 5 fresh recipes and 1 flavor of treat made using no additives, no artificial ingredients, and only the best, human-grade, restaurant-quality ingredients all from the USA. All their food is human grade and all natural, even the vitamins! As well, each recipe is made with only a handful of ingredients:
- Healthy Oils
- Nutrient Blend
To them, dogs deserve the same care as their human family. This is why each recipe is prepared in a human-grade kitchen that is 100% owned and controlled by NomNomNow in the San Fransisco Bay Area. This is important since nothing in the process of making your dog’s food is outsourced. Their kitchen is actually the first of its kind since it is 100% designed and dedicated to making fresh dog food in a kitchen that meets all FDA and USDA standards! As well, it is licensed and inspected for human-quality food production. Each ingredient is also inspected upon arrival to make sure it meets NomNomNow’s standards, before it is prepared and portioned by hand, and then sent out fresh to dogs everywhere. Their food is never frozen before reaching your door, meaning that the food you get is truly fresh when you get it. If you want all the benefits of homemade real food right at your fingertips, we are certain you will love NomNomNow!
What Are We Doing?
So, what exactly does it mean that we are doing a NomNomNow review? We are honestly pretty excited about it since this is one of the most extensive dog food reviews we have done to date. Ivi and Rylie will both be eating one of NomNomNow’s amazing fresh dog food recipes for one month. Ivi will be eating their Heartland Beef Mash recipe and Rylie their Chicken Chow-Wow recipe. Based on their profile from when we signed up (we signed up through their website, just like all their customers), they will send food that is individually packaged and portioned for their needs in two meals a day. Of course, their profile takes everything into account, including their age, weight, and activity level. I mean, who knew that feeding their dog a fresh dog food diet could be so easy?
By the way, before we go any further and maybe intimidate anyone, don’t be scared if you see the big package or multiple boxes. Along with testing out their food, we are also testing out NomNomNow’s national delivery service, which is currently in beta. Normally, they send 14 packs per week, per dog, enough to last 7 days at 2 meals a day. While it is free delivery, they deliver each week to 9 western states and are still testing out national delivery to people like us (in Kentucky). To make things easier for dog owners in the Eastern part of the US, they send a month’s worth of food. Since we have two big dogs, we decided to leave out the three giant boxes that covered our porch. Most people will not get this much food, unless they have two big dogs like us. We will go more into this during the unboxing video – promise!
Start of Our Journey: Unboxing Video
Last Wednesday, our delivery for the month arrived. In all honesty, we couldn’t wait to start our NomNomNow Review. With everything we had read about how it works, we were certain our girls would love this fresh dog food. To see the start of our journey, check out our unboxing video below!

I really like the idea of a fresh alternative to feed your dog vs traditional dog food from a factory.
Its also great that you are offering 50 % off the first 2 purchases! Thx
Oh my goodness, your dogs are just adorable! I love the idea of fresh food. My dog is picky and won’t eat just dry food or the canned mush stuff!
Kayla Norris says
I have seen fresh food for dogs in Publix and I have always wanted to try it. However I never have because the tube like packaging that you cannot see through turns me off of it. This looks like human food. Which is fantastic. Not only would I know what I am feeding my dogs but they would feel incredibly spoiled. There is no way they would know it was dog food. Another thing that makes me want to switch is their teeth. As they get older I know their teeth have taken a lot of wear. This seems like it would be a lot more gentle.
This is an interesting concept. I think dogs will love it.
Celeste Herrin says
What a wonderful idea!! I’m so glad to see good food for dogs that isn’t filled with chemicals! I lost 3 wonderful little furbabies due to tainted dog food before. So glad to see this available!!
Bilger Susan Scribner says
We are considering going to a raw food diet for our Shelties because they all have a skin condition that is causing them pain. The last we switched our brand it caused a bladder infection for one of them. I don’t mind giving it another try because now I know what to look for and the benefits could clear up their skin
Nancy Burgess says
This sounds like an amazing service.The food looks so good.
shelly peterson says
This looks like great healthy dog food. This would be a great service for my friend and her pup to try out.
We are always trying to feed our dogs the best possible foods, This sounds like it might just be the option we have been looking for. I am so excited to go check it out!
I feel good about feeding my dog homemade pet food. It is very convenient to have it delivered to my door!
Marti Tabora says
This really does sound like a healthy and nutritious diet for dogs. I love that they use natural ingredients in them. I think it may be beneficial for my dogs.
Julie Wood says
This really is amazing and such a good way to keep your dog healthy. I will have to check out his service and see how it would work for me and my dog!
These look amazing ,I think my dog would love it
This looks great. The food looks like something I’d be happy to serve my dog Dakota. The packages look appetizing and I love that prepackaged portioning. Can’t wait to see how the fur babies enjoy it.
Susan Bewley says
Our girls absolutely devouring it! I think part of the fun too is that they think they are getting human food. 😉
Melissa Storms says
This looks like a great option for us. I have been making my dogs food in my instant pot and try very hard to make sure she gets what she needs. I like that I can freeze Nomnomnow and have it ready for easy backup.
Susan Bewley says
The freezing is a big deal to me too! I have considered doing my own fresh food in the instant pot but with two large girls, it is a bit intimidating! I love that they make the process easy and it truly does look amazing. It is also amazing seeing exactly what you are feeding your fur babies in the package!
Janet W. says
Wow this is an amazing idea that my dogs would be so excited to eat! The ingredients look so fresh and healthy!
Susan Bewley says
Extremely fresh! When it sends out, they had just made it. One of the things I love too is the girls sniff test. They know that they were packaged by hand since the entire package smells like the juices. 🙂
Charlotte Winters says
I would love to have dog food delivered to my door. It is so stressful going out to the pet store, and having my dogs turn there noses up to every thing I buy. Nom Nom Nom looks like it would be a win win for all of us!
Susan Bewley says
Oh gosh, I know EXACTLY what you mean about the picky eater. Ivi loves a lot of food but tires of them quickly. This usually means I have to mix kibble with something just to get her to feed it. With NomNomNow, they know they are eating real food!
Charlotte Winters says
Oops Nom Nom Now. Curse my fat fingers. Little typo.
I’ve been thinking more and more about ditching the kibble and feeding my dogs homemade food. I might have to give this a try.
Susan Bewley says
I am just amazed at how much better the girls are doing on fresh so far!
monique s says
this looks great….my pup would love this. It makes me want to be a dog….lol
Soha Molina says
I like the natural ingredients in this product. I will recommend to dog-loving friends.
Amanda Roach says
this actually looks pretty good. Im intrigued ro look into this for my dog. thanks for the review.
Mishelle Greening says
I think that the company is brilliant. Using no additives and no artificial additives, using only restaurant-quality ingredients all from the USA makes them solid winners in Dog foods. This must make the dogs so happy!
This looks great! I can’t wait to see if the picky eater of the house (Yorkie named Molly) will devour it! She is hard to please, but she likes what she likes and if this tastes as good as it looks, she should be easily won over!
Susan Bewley says
I honestly can’t wait for Molly to try it! Ivi has started carrying her dish around and begging Daniel for more!
Lisa F. says
Wow, interesting concept for dog food. I would be curious if dogs who demonstrate coprophagia would be impacted by the fresh food design, since I’ve seen nothing help with that disgusting habit.
Susan Bewley says
It might help. I know some of it is a learned habit, as well some being nutrition deficiency. It is hard to say without having your dog tested by a vet.
I am always looking for more healthy food for my dogs. I love that it comes right to your house too!
heather kaufman says
This is a great way to give dogs fresh & healthy food. I love the concept.
Will G says
I had never heard of this services before. It might be worth checking out.
Wow, it really does look yummy! I’d like to nom nom it now too! 😀
Kim Pincombe-Cole says
What a great idea – with all the home food/meal delivery services for people, it was only a matter of time before someone thought of a service for our pets. I like that they have you fill out a questionnaire to taylor the food to your pets needs.
KENNETH OHL says
this looks like something I would love to have Ki Ki try always looking for the right fix for food and this looks like it might just be it
leslie ross says
My dog has bad allergies can i feed her this she needs to be 100% grain free
Susan Bewley says
Leslie, I can ask them and see. On the website, you can go to recipes and see all the ingredients. Just by skimming the ingredients in my girls food, I don’t see any grains.
Steve Weber says
This is a wonderful service. My girlfriend and I just started cooking for our dog, and we’ve noticed a huge change in her personality and energy.
Dan Dykstra says
My daughter and son in law are very busy people. I think they would love to try having their dog food delivered to their door. The ingredients look very good. I will pass this in to them.
Michelle S says
The care this company takes in making sure they have a good product is impressive. We don’t have a dog right now but are hoping to get one soon. This will definitely be an option for us.
Katie Bellamy says
What a great way to “spoil” your puppies!
Betsy Barnes says
This is really a great idea. The food looks like it is human food and it is a great service to be sure your pets are eating healthy.
chrissy c says
This is a wonderful idea! I will be looking into this food for our dog!
This looks like such an amazing service. I can see this being a service my husband and I use for our dog.
wen budro says
Nutritious food is so very important to my dogs’ health. I would love to have this wonderful dog food delivered to my home.
Anita Duvall says
These look so tasty for the dogs. I really hope we get the service in our area. Would love to try them out.
Pam Halligan says
I like that NomNomNow has only a few key ingredients. The 50%off first two purchases is a fantastic offer.
Jeanna Massman says
We love our dogs so much and it’s great that we can feed them fresh healthy food. The convenience of having it delivered to the house is an added bonus.
Angela Spengler says
This sounds very convenient. I’m sure my dog would enjoy this.
Angela Spengler says
This sounds very convenient. I’m sure my dog would like it.
Susan Smith says
I had never heard of this services before. I love that its delivered to your door. I have three dogs that would probably love this food.
Your dogs are so well-behaved and cute! This food looks much higher quality than most pet food on the market. Thanks for sharing 🙂
Calshondra Williams says
Your dogs are so adorable. This is a really good idea. I wish this would have been around when I owned my fur baby.
Cynthia C says
You can really see all the goodness in the food. I would feel good about feeding it to any dog.
Your dogs are so cute! I always want to make sure that my pets are being fed the best. I appreciate this brand using good ingredients that I would eat.
Margaret Smith says
Sounds and looks like some great food. Love that it’s delivered right to your door. My dogs would love this I’m sure.
Krystle K says
I don’t have a dog but if I did I would give this a try! I’m forwarding this to my bestie since she’s got a dog! Thank you!
Heather B. says
Looks great! Thanks for sharing!
Bryan Vice says
Oh wow this is very cool. Dogs can get all the good foods but nutritious for them as well. Would love to try for my 1 year old dog
Robin Abrams says
I really love that they are made using no additives, no artificial ingredients. I would love to have our pups food delivered and it is fresh. I have not food a food she really likes to eat maybe she would love this.
I like the thought of fresh food to feed my dog rather than traditional dog food made from a factory.
Our dogs would so love to try this one. We love feeding our animals healthy food and this sounds so amazing.
Sandy Klocinski says
I like the idea of fresh dog food. My fur baby is not all that picky but the one fresh alternative I tried (other than what I cooked for him myself) he would not eat and it was very expensive. At least this looks like human food so maybe he would eat it
DeAnna Keller says
my dogs would love this!
Kim Avery says
This sounds like a great service. My only problem would be having a small and very finicky Maltese! I swear her tastes change every day!
Barbara Montag says
I like this – talk about convenient!
And healthy food for our dogs.
Thanks for the post.
Abigail Gibson says
What a wonderful concept. This provides freshness and I know my dog would appreciate that. Thanks for sharing.
Cathy Truman says
I would love to try NomNomNow healthy dog food for
our boy Bailey. I like how fresh it looks and all the good healthy
food and vitamins and it is all from the USA,
Wow! I’ve never heard of fresh dog food for dogs. I love that the kitchen is dedicated to just making dog food. It really does look good.
Dawn Swingle says
Sounds like a great choice for dogs, thank you!
The husky is so cute! I also have a sweet husky myself.
Anne Higgins says
This is such a great idea for the owners who are too busy to prepare good foods for not only their pets but themselves. Seems like easily prepared meals are taking over the gym (like Clean Eats) and there are many pet restaurants with the same idea so having this delivered to your door makes it that much easier.
Lauren U says
Looks like tasty food. I think my picky dogs might actually try it.
Chris L says
The food looks like it would be tastier than regular dog food. I bet my Baby & Bella would love it. They love fresh food and it is a hassle to have to cook for them too.
Carolyn G says
This looks amazing. I love the idea of fresh foods for dogs. It is so important to keep them healthy.
Victoria K says
This is a great idea – my dog would love it. Is it available in Canada yet?
paige chandler says
Petals the Pug may like this. Something to give consideration to. thanks for sharing. woof
Debbie E says
This looks like a very healthy way to feed our pups!
Richard Hicks says
Our dog is like a family member. I would consider this service so he gets great healthy fresh food
Yours dogs are super cute! This seems like a great idea!
Kristen J. says
This would have been wonderful to have when my dog was alive (we lost him earlier this year). He had a very tender stomach from when he was a puppy and we were constantly trying to work with our vet to find him foods that were healthy and made of real ingredients for him. This would have made things so much easier.
Linda Szymoniak says
I do try to feed my dogs healthy food. There are some “fresh” foods available at pet stores, but I do wonder just how fresh they really are. This product sounds really great and I think my dogs would love it!
Michelle C says
Your dogs are precious! I like the idea of fresh dog food being delivered. My dog has a lot of allergies and a gluten sensitivity, so we are very careful about what we feed her.
kelley wood says
I also like this service for my 2 babies. They are just like my kids.
I’d love to have this for my dog! My dog is my best friend and she deserves the best 😉
Jeremy Mauney says
With as picky as my little dog, this would be perfect for here. What a cool concept
Lisa Brown says
fresh food for pets is best. that food looks great for them and the packaging is simple but effective. i am sure any dog would love to eat that food.the service looks good.
Jerry Marquardt says
The Chow Wow looks great for my pup. I would definitely love to try this out.
Jammie Morey says
I think my boys would love this. I try to treat them with some yummy home cooked meals once a week. This service would be perfect for giving them that treat hassle free.
Linda Manns Linneman says
I have never heard of this product before. We love to feed our dogs good and healthy food. This looks awesome. I will be checking this out. Thank you for sharing
Deb E says
What a treat for those of use who like to treat their dogs like one of the family! It’s a great discount just to try them out too. I’m anxious to come back this week and see how they liked their food!
beverly harrold says
while it seems amazing the nomnomnow folks would have to stand at the gate with a shovel to keep up with how fast me dobermans eat. i think this will be a nice sometimes treat in addition to all they eat now tho.
Susan Bewley says
I am really amazed that the girls are actually eating LESS with their food. I am used to them eating 4 – 6 cups of kibble a day. They both only have 2 of those packs a day. 🙂
Deborah D says
My aunt has 3 St. Bernards I’ll tell her about this food for them.
Nicole Lancaster says
I think it is a great service for pet owners. Homemade pet food without artificial preservative and low grade ingredients. Although its too expensive for my budget right now.
Tandi Cortez says
This is so cool! My puppies would LOVE this! 🙂
Lori D. says
Wow! What a wonderful idea! It looks healthy and I bet dogs love this!
Amanda lea says
I love this!! My dogs are always trying to get left overs. This would be such a healthy alternative and they would never know the difference
Cynthia Richardson says
This is a very clever idea. My dogs have always eaten dry dog food to which I add yogurt, vitamin, oil and diatomaceous earth. They would love this! Looks like “human” food.
Sarah Mayer says
My boyfriend’s dog is super spoiled, he would love to offer this service to her.
Shane A says
This is a wonderful option for feeding your pups healthy food. Even if it’s a bit expensive, I’d say it’s worth it!
Daniel M says
This looks like such an excellent service! I’d love to get those for my two Corgis. This is so cool! 🙂
Kristen Benson says
This looks so great! High quality my dog would love it I’m sure
Robin Creager says
Amazing! Home cooked food, packaged and sent to your front door just for my pet. I love the chunks of veggies and meats. Pure gourmet..what a great and healthy way to spoil your babies!
Jennifer H. says
I never heard of these products before.
John H. says
These look like they are really healthy meals for dogs.
Melina Ramirez says
This is a great service for our dogs. Dogs get to enjoy delicious food and we don’t have to go out to buy it.
This looks like it would be worth trying. I’m always looking for something new for my furries.
Kathy Pease says
These products sound awesome..I usually buy our dogs food at the grocery store and he does not seem to like most brands..I bet he would love this.
Angelo Parcesepe says
I try to feed my dogs healthy food, alas I do wonder just how healthy they really are. This product sounds great and I think my dogs would love it!
This sounds like an awesome service. I’d love to feed my dog stuff like this- hopefully soon. It’s too bad that this is only in the US (I’m in Canada).
Buddy Garrett says
It would be great to have healthy homemade dog food delivered to our door. It would also be convenient when you are busy and don’t have time for shopping.
Wendy McBride says
This is an awesome idea for dog food! My dog always wants our people food and so this will be a great alternative.
Trisha McKee says
I love this idea. I have bulldogs and a lot of the processed dog food out there upsets their stomachs. And I barely have time to get dinner on the table for us, let alone my baby pups. So this is a definite option!
Laurie Emerson says
I am always trying to find healthy food alternatives to feed our 3 dogs. I really like this service as I know they would love the food.
Haha. I can just see the dogs waiting for the mail for the day to get their food. This is a nice idea!
Jerry Marquardt says
I checked out The NomNomNow as a Chow Wow. It turns out to be a great service for my pup. I would definitely recommend this.
Janine Hwang says
This looks really healthy for dogs! I wish they had a service like this for babies too!
Amy Deeter says
Sounds like a great products ! cute dogs.i only have a cat right now, but thinking of getting a dog soon
Laurie Nykaza says
I’ve never seen this before and my 3 dogs would love it looks like food i would make for them if i did its healthy for them too. delivery to my home is great i hate going to the store
Christian Alejandro says
I really like the idea of these. Like a commenter above, our dog needs grain free. I hope they have options for her.
This would be nice for my friend’s dog ty
Our dog is a very picky eater and we will definitely look into this. It sounds like it is convenient and delicious…
Calvin F. says
Very convenient and good service!
