Every dog has unique nutritional needs that are based on their age, weight, breed, activity level, health condition and other variables. Puppo Personalized Dry Dog Food is kibble that is made with your dog's needs in mind. Fill out a short questionnaire about your pup, and they will create a recipe that is healthy and nutritious for your canine companion.
Many popular, top-selling brands of dog food use harmful ingredients like artificial colors and preservatives, fillers and even toxic chemicals. As your pet's caregiver, it’s your job to advocate for him and make sure that you’re feeding a high quality diet that provides the nutrition he needs without any of the harmful ingredients that are commonly found in commercial pet food products.
The ONLY good thing about dog food that uses cheaper quality ingredients is that those savings are often passed on to the consumer. In layman’s terms, this means that cheaper quality foods don’t cost as much as a high quality product. As the old saying goes, you get what you pay for.
As with almost every consumer product, you have to look at the big picture and not just the “now.” Saving a few dollars on dog food now may actually cost you more in the long run. Did you know that some studies have shown links between common ingredients in commercial dog food products and the risk of cancer?
The health benefits of feeding a higher quality food will likely save you money on veterinary care over the years. Likewise, higher quality foods are more nutrient dense. This means that you can feed your dog less food while providing the same nutritional contents. You may have to spend more up front, but higher quality food will pay for itself over time.
At the end of the day, one thing that every pet owner can agree on is that our dogs don’t live nearly as long as we’d like them to. While there isn’t anything we can do to keep our canine companions around forever, feeding a high quality dog food is likely to extend his lifespan, and this has been demonstrated in multiple studies.
So, how does Puppo personalize dog food recipes for your pet? Are the recipes nutritionally balanced? Is the food made with safe, high-quality ingredients? I'll give you all the details in the review below.
Puppo Personalized Dry Dog Food Review
It's easy to get your dog signed up for Puppo Personalized Dry Dog Food. Simply go to the company's website and fill out the questionnaire about your dog. If you have multiple dogs, you can fill out questionnaires for each when placing your order.
The questionnaire asks questions about your dog's:
- activity level
- health issues
…and anything else that you feel you need to add to help Puppo determine the best diet for your canine companion.
This dog food is made with no corn, wheat, soy or by-product meals. It also has no artificial preservatives, flavors or colors. It is made with wholesome, real food ingredients, and real meat is the first ingredient in every recipe. Puppo Personalized Dry Dog Food is also made with whole grains.

As you can see in my video review above, our dogs are thrilled with their Puppo Personalized Dry Dog Food. They're excited to eat it, which tells me they really enjoy the flavor and texture. Puppo doesn't offer a wet dog food recipe at this time, but the kibble size is small.
The ingredients in Saddie's secret recipe are: chicken, chicken meal (source of Glucosamine and Chondroitin sulfate), whole grain sorghum, split peas, rive bran, powdered cellulose, brewers rice, lamb meal (source of Glucosamine and Chondroitin sulfate), natural flavor, dried sweet potato, chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols), dried plain beet pulp, potassium chloride, choline chloride, DL-Methionine, salt, dried apples, dried blueberries, dried carrots, mixed tocopherols and citric acid (preservatives), zinc sulfate, niacin supplement, biotin, Vitamin E supplement, iron amino acid chelate, D-calcium pantothenate, riboflavin supplement (Vitamin B2), selenium yeast, Vitamin B12 supplement, copper amino acid chelate, pyridoxine hydrochloride (Vitamin B6), manganese amino acid chelate, Vitamin A supplement, thiamine mononitrate (Vitamin B1), Vitamin D3 supplement, folic acid and rosemary extract.

This is obviously a high-quality dog food that is made to provide top nutrition to pets. While it's not available in a wet formula, I think it would be an excellent option for any pup that eats dry kibble.
As I mentioned in the introduction of this article, higher quality food is always more expensive than lower quality alternatives. The price of this food varies depending on the size of your pet.
A 30-day supply for our 70-pound Labrador cost $79. That's about $2.63 per day. A 27-day supply for our 30-pound Beagle cost $54, which is $2 per day. When you compare this price to other high quality dog food brands, it's quite a bit cheaper. Plus, you get Puppo Personalized Dry Dog Food delivered to your door, so the convenience adds to the value.
