About Us

"Dogs are family. Our mission is to extend the health span of all dogs through food."

Read our story

Natural dog food with 100% clean ingredients.

Yumwoof Natural Pet Food is elevating America's dog food. It started because we needed a healthier choice.

In 2008, our Head Chef's dog became ill. He could no longer afford to keep feeding his (rather large) dog the dry kibble he had been feeding him for years.

Luckily, he was a professional chef trained at The French Culinary Institute.

With the input of his local veterinarian and pet nutritionist, he began cooking a new formula based on their recommendations. The ingredients also reflected the latest scientific research in pet nutrition.

Within months, something incredible happened. His dog had a shiner coat, healthier skin, and tons of energy! That's when he realized his pup's previous diet of burnt brown balls was actually malnourishing him.

With continued testing since then, we have evolved our formula with the continued feedback of veterinarians and pet nutritionists to offer it as Yumwoof Natural Pet Food. Our filler-free clean recipes are the healthiest food you can give your dog - just take a look at the ingredients!

A collaboration with the world's best veterinarians and pet nutritionists.

Our mission is to extend the healthspan of all dogs. We elevate your dogs' meals using yummy recipes and fresh human-grade ingredients to create food that gives your little loved ones the nutrients they need to live a long and happy life.

After selling our previous tech companies, we decided to bring our experience to something we were truly passionate about: giving dogs the best life possible. From our kitchens and scientific lab, Yumwoof Natural Pet Food was born.

We collaborated with the top pet nutritionists and veterinarians to create a recipe with the ingredients and nutrients your dog needs.

Our research proved that dogs are healthier when they eat natural food with minimal processing. That’s why Yumwoof recipes only include real ingredients, and never use preservatives, fillers, or ultraprocessed additives.

Our nutrition philosophy is made for the health conscious

A biologically appropriate diet for evolved canines.

Our food meets or exceeds AAFCO nutrition standards.

Biological diets backed by science.

Science has come a long way since commercial dog food first appeared nearly 100 years ago.

The machines used in industrial food manufacturing have scaled food at low prices, but growing research shows that these ultraprocessed foods have led to growing diabetes, disease and health issues in both humans and dogs alike.

For example, ultraprocessed foods cause a faster spike in blood glucose because both human and canine bodies don't spend time breaking it down.

At the core of Yumwoof Natural Pet Food is the belief that eating foods aligned with natural, ancesteral diets will result in better health.

Every ingredient we use is formulated by a veterinary nutrionist alongside new scientific research from the National Institutes of Health. We only use ingredients that have support from AAFCO and the NIH.
