Weekends fueled by Stella & Chewy’s
Happy Saturday! This weekend, our friends at Stella & Chewy’s encouraged us to get out and explore with our pups. We’re so lucky that they provided the raw food and nutrition that Kokoro & Chibi need to join us on our weekend adventures. The pups love coming along on bike rides to the beach.
As many of you know, we’ve gone through quite the dog food journey between our two pups. With Kokoro’s insane pickiness and Chibi’s continual goal to be leaner due to her hip dysplasia, it’s definitely been difficult navigating what we should and shouldn’t feed our pups.
Having worked at a pet food company and tried about half of the brands of dog food available, we’ve found that incorporating raw into Kokoro & Chibi’s diets really works the best for them. Last summer, we tried Stella & Chewy’s frozen patties for a few months, but found that with the small amount of freezer space we had, it wasn’t working out for us convenience-wise. So when their team offered to send us some freeze-dried patties, we were super excited to give them a try. (By the way, they have a handy selector on their site to help you choose what’s the right type of food for your dog and your lifestyle!)
Freeze-dried has been working really well for us both in terms of convenience and nutrition. Kokoro is much less picky eating raw food than she is eating kibble, so we don’t have to worry about her starving herself every day with this new food. The freeze-dried food also mixes really well into Chibi’s kibble and provides a great way for us to transition her to a fully raw diet, which we’re aiming to do in the next few weeks.
Of course, what weekend adventure is complete without a baggie full of Stella & Chewy’s Carnivore Crunch? I always like to keep some food motivation handy when I have my pups around just in case, and these raw snacks are perfect for on-the-go treating.
We’ve only recently switched back to Stella & Chewy’s so stay tuned for more thoughts and updates!
