    I was looking for a new raw food provider and had gotten a lot of recommendations for BJ’s. Their prices are competitive and their customer service reps are extremely friendly and helpful. I am a dog trainer and refer clients all the time that are interested in feeding raw to their dogs. My dogs love it and are glowing in health from my senior dog to my puppy.

  2. Sara Wenzel (verified owner)

    My dogs absolutely love BJ’s raw dog food and I love the customer service. Not only is the food great quality, but they are so easy to do business with. I love the fast delivery too.

    My Great Dane puppy came with it from our breeder. He refuses to eat anything else and is always excited for meal times.
    My sister gave some to her 3 Maltese and they all love it as well.
    Customer service is very personable and are so easy to do business with.

    Koda and Sadie have never been healthier or happier on any other brand of food. They eat
    without hesitation….. and we want to keep these pups healthy and happy.

    Started my chihuahua puppy on BJ’s. She loves this food! My last chihuahua who lived to be 17 yo had horrible breath and rotten teeth that had to be removed despite regular cleanings. There seems to be something inherent in toy breeds and severe tooth decay. I am hoping a raw diet with regular dental care will keep Bitsy’s breath from becoming disgusting enough to clear a room! I’m located in Texas and shipping was very fast. I’m going to have to figure out a way to minimize the shipping cost because i don’t order $165.00 at a time because she’s so small.

    I have 9 dogs – 2 French Bulldog puppies, one yorkie, one chihuahua, one dachshund, and 4 adult frenchies and they all went absolutely nuts for this food. I have noticed a significant reduction in the amount of times they have to poop everyday. Right now I have them eating raw in the evening and rawrev dry in the morning and their coats are shiny and they all looking forward to evening dinner time.
    The size was a challenge. Obviously with the number of dogs I have, I need to buy in bulk to save money and since it comes frozen obviously and I didn’t have space in my stand up freezer in the garage I had to divvy it up into meal prep containers. This took me literally 4-5 hours between cutting through the meat with a sharp knife, and waiting for it to be somewhat less frozen so that could be accomplished. For future orders I will most likely order the 10 pound containers instead.

    Also beware the smell and be prepared for it. It was not what I anticipated!

    My dogs (8 years old lab mix and almost 3 years old herding mix) have been officially on 100% raw for about a week now with BJ’s Basic Mix. They absolutely LOVE it. Being disabled, the premade mix really makes prepping their meals much easier. I just weigh out the amount needed for each dog, add a homemade blend of various fruits and veggies with goats milk to this particular mix and prep is done quickly and easily. So far, we are LOVING BJ’s.

    I have 6 month and a 9.5 month potcake puppies. They were eating freeze fried raw and also Sunday’s air dried raw before. I mix this basic mix with Dr Harvey’s freeze fried Raw Vibrance (wet it to hydrate first) and they absolutely love it. Lick their bowls and check to see if the other one left anything behind. My only concern is that the younger pup has started tooting which he never did before and I worry about his tummy being upset.

    I had fed my dog raw (from grocery store) for years but switched to kibble for times sake and it was messy to prep. It took a few months after the transition but his breath became foul, he became more whine-y and unhappy and he clearly started to have problems eating (same thing, over and over). I decided it was necessary to upgrade his life experience. I bought this brand to eliminate the work I had to do before.
    I am vegetarian so the humanitarian statement of how and where the animals come from helped win my approval.
    Anyway, after just a few meals his breath has become fresh again, his behavior has noticeably improved (unexpected side effect) and he is over the moon ecstatic about his food now. I have no doubt he can taste food and takes great pleasure in this primal ritual. I have attached exhibit A as proof of his approval. It was taken on the second feeding.

    Crooked nose (smelling the air for clues while in a “don’t move” command before release).

    I rest my case, thank you for making this food available. I am convinced it is the most “raw” food we’ve tried. That is- straight from the farm, minimally processed. I was pleasantly surprised that it arrived frozen on my doorstep even though we are on opposite sides of the country. I was also very pleased the weight of the food was what was said and a touch over. Thank you!

    Our dogs were not on raw before so we tried to introduce this slowly, by putting out two bowls. One was our usual fresh homemade cooked chicken/rice/veg and the other a bowl of BJs Basic Raw blend. By the end of the first week we had to stop putting out our regular food, as neither were touching it! We are now just topping the raw with a small amount of vegetables. I’ve never seen such clean bowls before! Our dogs are so picky and they gobble this up. Even our one who is super skinny and has to be coaxed to eat comes running to the kitchen when this container is opened. It’s so wonderful to see and we hope he’ll now put on some weight. It’s also very nice that both puppy and adult can eat the same food. We’re hooked!

    My 2 chihuahuas looooove BJ’s raw! Their coats are super soft and they are very energetic. My girls are 1 yr old and 8 months old and have been eating BJ’s raw since i got them at 6 weeks old. Highly recommend BJ’s raw!

  13. Dawn Mordt (verified owner)

    I’m new to BJ’s, only ordered twice so far but want to say that their product is awesome, reasonable and was delivered to me in two days. I live in Fla. All my dogs loved the food. Excellent company to do business with, thank you!

    All of our dogs love BJ’s raw diet.
    We have two two Pomeranians, Panda and Bamboo. They are 2 1/2 years old. Both had food allergies until we started feeding the BJ’s raw diet. The quality of life is much better for both of them after eating an ancestral raw diet.

    We also two Beagles, Bowen who is 15 years old and used to have on going ear infections. They are much better now. Pugsley is 13 years old and he was obese when we adopted him.
    He was 62lbs and miserable. Couldn’t run without being exhausted. Poor guy had a hard time even reaching around to clean himself . Boy how things have changed for him, he now is 38lbs and feeling a lot better with endless energy.

    We have seen dramatic difference in all of our dogs health since we have used BJ’s raw diet.

    We can’t thank everybody at BJ’s enough. You’ve changed our dogs quality of life.

    i have been feeding my 2 dogs raw for five years now. the shops I get my organ meat and chicken feet have all stop carrying them so I was looking for a affordable pre made. After searching for a few weeks I came across bj’s .I must say my dogs love the basic mix .I place
    Charlie’s dish on the floor walk across the room to place Ozzie’s down and Charlie is already finished. Ozzzie is a picky slow eater but not with bj’s . HE clears his plate in a flash and licks it clean which he has neaver done before

    I have been feeding my dogs the Basic mix for two months now, and i am impressed with the quality of the food. My dogs finish their meals in seconds,they look great and i believe they feel great too. Bj’s raw petfood is second to none when it comes to shipping ,quality and amazing customer service . Thank you

    We had used a different raw food company for 3 years. We had to order tripe and organ meat separately. The fact that the basic mix has all of that, combined with free shipping, was a game changer. Great customer service as well.

    I have 2 bulldogs with spina bifida. As you can imagine I go through a lot of diapers, unfortunately I’ve become all too familiar with what my dogs will tolerate, have reactions to, and maintains consistency.
    I’ve tried more than I care to remember. From making it myself with fresh ingredients, farmers dog, a variety of dry kibble, fresh pet, different store and subscription brands.
    So far, BJ’S raw is the only one that has maintained a healthy, and consistent, stool for them. Which with their other issues is extremely important. Their coats are soft and healthy. They’re puppies but they have insane energy, which I attribute to them having a balanced, healthy diet.

    Best regards,

    Bj’s isn’t the cheapest raw food out there. But it is the best we have tried. Jack loves the food. He’s eight years old, black lab Aussie mix. He was overweight, inactive, and miserable. We changed his diet, and he is now at a normal weight and with very high energy for his age. He initiates play with the puppy now. BJ’s food has him jumping in excitement every evening. Raw food has prolonged his life and his health. But my favorite part is the packaging. The 2lb containers are very easy for us to use making raw food convenient.
