Newman’s Own Organics Dog Food Review

Posted on Aug 11 2014 - 9:25pm by Susan Bewley

Disclosure: I received these products for free to review. The opinions in my review are honest and my own.


Like many of you, I worry quite a bit about the quality of my dog’s food and treats. I have always worried about Reya’s food, but especially with all the recalls and scares of imported foods from China, we can’t really be too cautious. Even brands I knew and trusted had been making their pet food there, which truly disturbed me. Recently, I have been looking into a variety of different organic and natural brands that make their food in facilities with high ingredient standards. Through my search, I found a familiar brand that caught my interest and I knew I had to try – Newman’s Own Organics. After talking with them about some of their dog food, I was delighted when they asked me to review a variety of their foods!

Newman’s Own Organics Dog Food: Overall

Before this review, I had heard great things about Newman’s Own Organics. While traveling we had tried some of their licorice (for humans) but I didn’t have any other experience with the brand. To say the least, I couldn’t wait to open this food and see what Reya thought of it. So far, I have been very impressed. The ingredient list is very easy to read and best of all, it is made using only the best, natural and organic ingredients. Of course, any food can look amazing on the package and your dog absolutely hate it. Luckily, this wasn’t the case with this food. Reya was doing hops to get to this food and was truly excited. What impressed me more, however, was that this food was very filling. One large can of this food seems to be satisfying my 75lb dog, and she has had no interest in  eating any other food after. She seems to be liking the other food just as well, making me a very happy dog mom. Based on our own experience with this food, we are happy to give Newman’s Own Organic Dog Food an A rating!

    Sounds like a great brand. I love that their products are organic and exceed the nutritional requirements of AAFCO. I am also thrilled that their food is free of hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, herbicides, chemical additives, artificial colors, wheat, and corn.

    Thank you for your review. I love Newman’s Own treats for humans and I am sure that our Sorcha would love the dog food and treats.

    I worry constantly about products sourced from China, and do not feed grain to my dog. I have not tried this yet but because of your review I will give it a try. I do love the other Newman’s Own Organics I have tried.

    I had no idea that Newmans own had branched out to pet foods! They really do make quality person foods. I bet it is safe to say they make high quality pet foods as well.

    wow, i had no idea this existed! I need to buy my dog this!

    I love Newman’s Own, and Newman’s Own Organics. I did not know they made dog food, I haven’t noticed it at any of my local stores. I am going to look for it next time I am out. Thanks for the review.

    Looks interesting but how is the cost? I also looked and researched and dog food and found one made in the USA and has never been recalled. Thanks for the heads up on another dog food!

    I love Newman’s Own, it’s such a great company! I have not tried the dog food but I plan too!

    I like this brand, we try to use the most holistic type of food available. We also enjoy Newman’s Own people food products.

    My little fur baby would love this food.

  14. Joey Simmonds August 14, 2014 at 1:10 am - Reply

    I have never seen this before. Maybe because I live in small town Tennessee and it hasn’t made it here yet. Love the idea of organic for dogs. We all love our dogs just like kids and want the best for them. Unfortunatly, not a lot of organic food is even offered here, have to grow your own. Thanks for sharing.

    I wasn’t aware that Newman’s Own even made dog food! I’ll have to check it out! Thanks!

    Thanks for the review. I’ve totally gone organic and I’m pushing my family reluctantly to adopt an organic lifestyle and my next step was to introduce my fur baby to organic. I will have to try this.

    I will have to get some Newman’s Own Organics dog food for my pups to try. It looks like a healthy choice for them! Thanks for the review.

    I really enjoy Newman’s own in people food, for example, we LOVE their non creamy Ceasar Dressing. I would be concerned though with the dog food as it has grain in it and most vets will now tell you that they prescribe a grain free diet for dogs.

    good for dogs

  23. Sharon Howard August 17, 2014 at 6:22 pm - Reply

    We have to buy Organic dog food because one of our dogs has severe food allergies but I haven’t tried Newman’s Own Organic dog food.

  24. Brenda Saball September 11, 2014 at 8:56 am - Reply

    I love Newman’s Own Products and the fact that they give profits to charity. If the pet food is as good as the “people” food, it will be a wonderful product.

    I love Newmans own organic products. I had no idea they also had animal products! I’m glad I found this giveaway

    Thats wonderful that Newmans own makes organic pet food. They are a great company with high quality products. I would definitely buy this for my pets.

    The Newmans Own Organics is Wonderful food so I am sure the dog and cat food is also Wonderful. I am so happy that you are having this giveaway I have not seen many Newmans Giveaways out. Thank You, Jerri Davis

    I have tried lots of human foods by Newmans and have not been disappointed. It is getting harder and harder to find quality, made in the USA, affordable dog food. This review has convinced me to give it a try. I will start with treats and work from there. Thank you for your experiences with us!!

    I love being able to have so many choices for our pets. I’ve tried the canned cat food before and the cats loved it.

  30. Elizabeth September 11, 2014 at 2:17 pm - Reply

    I have always believed in and trusted Newman’s Own Products! High quality ingredients and organic too! Right now I only have three 7-1/2 month old “kittens” and no dogs…I’ll be checking out their cat food products.

    Great review. I def want to try this. I trust the NOO brand so I would feed my precious fur baby this food.

  32. Cynthia Smith September 11, 2014 at 9:05 pm - Reply

    I’ve enjoyed Newman’s Own for the two legged beasties so I would not give it a second thought to give it to my four legged babies! Great company with a fabulous product.

    Newman’s Own is a trusted brand at my house, I love the products, but I have never tried the dog food. I really like that you added the link to the store locator in the review. I find that really helpful.

  34. Cynthia C September 12, 2014 at 8:37 am - Reply

    Organic pet food is not easy to find. I’m glad that Newman’s Own is making it available.

  35. Janis Gibel September 12, 2014 at 2:09 pm - Reply

    I like what I read about Newman’s Own Organics Dog Food and assume that they put the same care into their cat food. There are no stores within an hour drive of me that sell it so I would have to order online.

    I haven’t seen this in the store either. I love Newman’s Own people food though.

    I had no idea that Newman’s Own made food for pets. I’m glad to see that they at least sell the treats in my area! Thanks for the the post and the opportunity to win!

    I am feeding my dogs a different organic dog food right now, I will have to give Newmans Own a try too. I was buying a cheaper brand sold in bulk years ago and my older dog had a terrible skin condition because of the feed. It took me longer then it should have to attribute it to the food.

  39. Margot C September 14, 2014 at 2:38 pm - Reply

    Well, I buy Newman’s Organic human treats, so what better recommendation could there be? My dog also likes that kind of texture so thanks for the photo.

    Our Scarlet loves the Newman’s Own Peanut Butter Dog Treats. Have not seen the other snack treats pictured above in the grocery store. Thanks for the chance to try them!

    I love Newman’s Own for salad dressing, didn’t know they made dog food! The canned dog food and the dog treats look great – I looked up the ingredients on their website and I’m impressed.

    I was buying Newman’s Own Dog food for years. I was impressed with the ingredients and quality, but after having my pug puppy tested for allergies I had to change his kibble. I’m sure his new ‘sister’ would like the products.

    I love Newman’s Own Organics and so do my pets. I have a house load of cats at the moment would love this nutritious food!

    I know Sorcha would love these foods for doggies and my kitties would also love the cat foods. Thank you for your review.

    Newman’s Own looks like they have some great products for pets. I love that they are organic.

    I think this is awesome. I love all of Newman’s Own products. It’s fantastic that they are making products for our fur babies.

    I love Newmans products. I think they are really concerned about what they put in their products too. I didn’t realize they had cat food. I have 2 cats and one dog now. I will be looking at their products.

    Thank you for your review. I was not aware that there was a pet food from Newman’s Own Organics.

    I buy and prepare organic foods for my human family, but never thought about feeding my dogs and cats organic. Silly me! Now I know that Newman’s Own pet foods makes that easy. Thanks

    Do you only feed canned food to your dog? Just curious, or if that was just for this review. I’m happy with my dog’s food, but would love to try these treats. Thanks!

    I truly appreciate this insightful review! I am anxious to try all their products now. Thank you so much for the information!!!

    I’m not surprised that healthier food is more filling than the rice-chuff empty calories in most pet foods…but I’m STILL impressed. Reya is sooooo pretty, and I love her name. My mom’s dog is having difficulty with her diet, so I can’t wait to try this more filling option.

    The snack sticks look like they’re barking up the beast’s tree, so to speak. She’s a little bit picky about treats and not terribly food-motivated, so I’m always happy to find something she’ll love.

    My Furbabies (dogs) have tried Newman’s Own Pet Snacks – it was Chicken Flavor in the shape of hearts (healthy). They loved them. This is a really good giveaway.

    I’m so glad that this company makes dog food and treats for my 4 legged family member. I know my dog will like the canned food and I don’t have to worry about the ingredients.
