Feeding Your Puppy

Congratulations on the newest member of your family!

We know the special place your new puppy already has in your heart. In fact, it’s that same love that inspired us to start Rick’s Dog Deli in the first place.

As your new pup grows, you want to give them the very best to ensure a long and healthy life. And while those doggy sweaters and expensive chew toys make for a cute Instagram post, it’s your puppy’s food that will have the biggest impact on their long-term health.

  • The Best Nutritional Start
    Unlike shelf-stable, processed dog food, Rick’s Dog Deli meals are free of fillers, preservatives, and toxins. Just fresh, wholesome, USDA-inspected ingredients.
  • The Rick’s Dog Deli Difference
    With more than 10 available recipes, you can treat your pup to a variety of delicious flavor profiles. We are also more than happy to create a custom recipe if your puppy has more specific needs due to health conditions or allergies.
  • Feeding Your Puppy
    Simply take out the amount of food your puppy will need for the next day and place it in a container in your fridge. Our handy Feeding Chart can help you determine how much puppy food your dog needs. Your puppy will need slightly more calories, as they are still growing.
  • Nutrition For Life
    For an extra boost of nutrition during their formative years, we recommend that you supplement your puppy’s food with TNT Total Nutritional Top-Dress.

The Best Nutritional Start

During their first year of life, that tiny ball of fur will become a fully grown adult dog….and this rapid transformation requires the right amount of nutrition.

Right now, your puppy’s best years are ahead of them. Get them off to a great start by giving them optimal nutrition during the years they need it most.

Unlike shelf-stable, processed dog food, Rick’s Dog Deli meals are free of fillers, preservatives, and toxins. Just fresh, wholesome, USDA-inspected ingredients. The ingredients listed are exactly what you’re getting – nothing more, nothing less.

Real. Good. Nutrition.

The Rick’s Dog Deli Difference

At Rick’s Dog Deli, we don’t make “dog food.” We make healthy meals that have been developed and crafted for a dog’s unique nutritional needs.

Why do we have such high standards?

There have been far too many news stories uncovering what goes on in the pet food industry–misleading claims, inaccurate labels, toxic ingredients, and worse. Our meals are great for your pups and made of all wholesome ingredients that are delicious (and recommended) for humans themselves!

Nutrition For Life

Other dog food brands carry separate products for the different stages of your dog’s life. We here at Rick’s have done tireless research and discovered that puppy food doesn’t need to be nutritionally different from any other dog food.

Your puppy has the same nutritional needs as adult and senior dogs, they just need more calories (relative to their weight). In fact, keeping them on the same high-quality meal formulation right from the start makes those tricky transitions completely unnecessary.

We’ve heard stories of picky eaters whose owners spend months, if not years, trying to track down “the perfect puppy food.” But when you start them off with the most wholesome, nutritious food available, you can avoid the digestive upset and upturned noses that plague so many others.

For an extra boost of nutrition during their formative years, we recommend that you supplement your puppy’s food with TNT Total Nutritional Top-Dress.

Feeding your fur baby the best puppy food doesn’t mean finding a product specifically labeled “For Puppies.” It means ensuring that your dog receives the optimal level of nutrition throughout their entire life.

At Rick’s Dog Deli, you’ll never have to worry about what’s in your puppy’s food. With an assortment of recipes and treats, you can rest assured that we’re prepared for whatever life throws your dog’s way.

You can find Rick’s Dog Deli meals at our main facility located in College Park, in select participating Woof Gang Bakery locations, and a growing list of other retail partners throughout Central and South Florida. A list of these partners can be found here.

Local delivery is also available to those within a 20-mile radius of our College Park shop.
