The best dog food we’ve ever tried.

An extremely fussy puppy who licks her bowl clean after every meal…and has done for the last few months we’ve been using Marleybones. All other food she’d stop eating after 2-3 weeks. Super easy to order and delivery is on time every month. Very very happy owners and puppy!

The best. No competition.

Excellent service and a company which clearly cares about its environmental impact. The QR codes on the side of each pack let you trace where each ingredient in that specific box was sourced and processed – full accountability. This is how companies should operate. The product is the best (healthiest and tastiest for my puppy) I’ve found. Would highly recommend not settling for anything else.

Great quality food that is sustainable.

Great quality food that is sustainable and you can track exactly where everything came from. My puppy loves this food and I love knowing he is being fed a good quality, complete food that isn’t full of rubbish like other brands. It is also extremely convenient that it doesn’t need to be stored in the fridge/freezer until it has been opened.

Free-range chicken

We are one of the only companies that use whole, free-range chickens in our recipes. Besides the better animal welfare standards that all of our animals live by, there is great nutritional benefits to using free-range chickens compared to caged hens.

Kale

This superfood makes an appearance alongside our other nutritious vegetables. Kale is rich in vitamins and minerals, as well as providing beneficial antioxidants which help reduce the effects of ageing and prevent cellular damage from day to day life!

testimonial dog

Carrots

The trusty carrot; a root vegetable as rich in antioxidants and beneficial phytonutrients as it is in colour. As well as a great source of gut-friendly fibre, they contain beta-carotene, a powerful compound that is beneficial to cellular health, especially the cells found in the eyes!

testimonial dog

Garden peas

Peas are very low in calories whilst packing quite the nutrient punch. They contain just about every nutrient and vitamin you can think of, as well as being beneficial for digestive health.

quinoa

This gluten-free superfood, often mistaken for a grain, is actually a seed. A seed that is nutrient-dense, high in fibre, packed full of essential amino acids and a great source of energy for our dogs. We even found a family-owned business that grows it right here in the UK!

testimonial dog

Hemp seeds

The hemp seed is a nutrient powerhouse. They contain essential Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E and an abundance of minerals. The fats found in hemp seeds have been shown to support a healthy coat and skin whilst the fibre in the outer shell helps improve digestion.

testimonial dog

Chia seeds

Chia seeds are an excellent plant-based protein which complements the amino acid composition in meats nicely. These superfood seeds are further packed with a wide range of nutrients and especially fatty acids like Omega-3, 6 and 9.

testimonial dog

Linseeds

Linseeds help us achieve the perfect Omega-3:6 ratio in all of our meals. They help promote a glossy coat, better skin, healthier brains, a strong heart, pain-free joints and reduced inflammation.

testimonial dog

Wild seaweed

Our wild Scottish seaweed is one of the most nutrient-dense ingredients you can get your hands on. It is the best dietary source of iodine that nature has to offer. This is an essential nutrient that helps keep your dog’s thyroid healthy which is entirely responsible for a normal metabolism.

testimonial dog

Chicory root

The root of the chicory plant is unique in its fibre composition. It is 68% inulin by weight which is an amazing prebiotic fibre. It is actually used by the ‘’good bacteria’’ in the gut as fuel so food is optimally digested; allowing for maximum nutrient absorption.

testimonial dog

Yucca

Yucca root extract is usually used in pet foods to reduce faecal odour, which it does a great job of. However, yucca also has antioxidant benefits and is a natural anti-inflammatory. It can help with digestion and has also shown some promising effects for dogs with arthritis.

FAQ

Does Marleybones use free-range chickens?

Yes! Animal welfare is at the core of Marleybones and we only source free-range chickens. Take a look at our ‘Meals’ section to find out more. You will be able to see photos and get information of our happy, outdoor chickens looking for that next fat, juicy worm!

Why is free-range chicken better?

Chickens are given good natural light and space to roam around outside from an early age. Slower growing breeds are used, which means birds develop at a natural rate. The birds are only given antibiotics if absolutely necessary to restore their health. To meet our increasing demand for white meat, and to keep prices low, farmers have been forced into new levels of efficiency. They now produce chickens that grow at phenomenally unnatural rates and have the equivalent amount of space as an A4 piece of paper to live on. We will not partake in this practice.

What is the difference between free-range and free-run chickens?

Free-range birds get to explore the outdoors including all-natural behaviors such as ground scratching, perching, dust bathing and eating those juicy, fat worms! Free-run means the birds are housed in a cage-free, but indoor environment. They are free to move around, but never get to see the light of day.

Are there health benefits from using free-range chickens?

There are major health benefits associated with using free-range chickens! Aside from the obvious animal welfare issues with caged chickens, these chickens are also not as healthy as free-range chickens. One report reveals intensively reared chickens contain as much fat, gram for gram, as a Big Mac. Plus, they are routinely fed antibiotics to prevent disease caused by living in such close confinement, leading to a rise in drug resistance. At the opposite end of the farming spectrum, slow-growing, better-fed chickens contain less saturated fat and higher omega-3 fatty acids, which are good for your dog’s heart. These birds are also only given antibiotics if absolutely necessary to restore their health.

How is the food cooked?

We get in all our ingredients farm fresh and fill them raw into the cartons, seal the cartons and then we steam cook the entire carton from the outside. Steam cooking is one of the gentlest cooking methods, as it keeps all the natural moisture, vitamins and minerals coming from the fresh produce within the meals, locking in all the freshness, flavour and nutrients! Not only that, the moisture ensures optimal digestion and urinary function.

Do I need to freeze the food?

One of the benefits of Marleybones meals, is that you don’t need to clear your freezer for ice-cream and just need to store them in a cool, dry place. As a bonus, they take up much less space than the traditional and is easy to stack and store.

Is Marleybones grain-free?

Yes – all our meals are grain-free! Many believe quinoa is a grain, but it is in fact a seed that is harvested from a tall, leafy plant. Quinoa is actually more of a relative to spinach or beets. Because they are cooked like a grain, they seem to get lumped into the same grain category.

Is Marleybones hypoallergenic?

We are certain most dogs will thrive with Marleybones dog dining. Our recipes are easy to digest and great with sensitive tummies. We’ve made sure not to include known allergens like cereals (wheat, barley, oats and maize) and vegetable protein (pea protein, maize/wheat gluten and soya). Instead we use unprocessed, human-grade ingredients in all our single-source protein meals. If your dog should be allergic to any type of meat or fish, you will be able to exclude the variant from your dining box.
