Ollie is a subscription-based pet food company that makes fresh, custom meals for your dog. Every recipe, formulated by a specialized veterinarian is free from preservatives, by-products, and artificial flavors. The food is gently cooked at low temperatures to preserve vital nutrients in every human-grade ingredient.
We signed up for the All Ollie plan and received 14 trays of the Hearty Beef Eats recipe. This was our first time trying Ollie, so our box also included a Welcome Kit which contained their food storage container, lid and serving spoon.
The food arrived on our doorstep, and upon opening the box, I found that all the food was still frozen. Ollie packs the meals with dry ice and a thick, insulated fiber. This protects the food during shipping and ensures it stays cold even if you aren't home at the time of delivery.
Inside the box, you'll see instructions and a customized feeding guideline for your dog. Ollie tells you how much to feed your dog per meal, how often to feed them and how many calories are in each meal.
I have a small 12-pound dachshund, and my feeding guidelines show that each meal for Rocket consists of 154 calories for a total of 308 calories per day.
How we test dog food
Bark and Biscuits uses five tests to grade dog food: The Quality Test, Sniff Test, Storage Test, Lifestyle Test, and Value Test. From there, each test receives either a green, yellow or red light. Here is our 2019 Ollie dog food review.
The Quality Test
The quality test evaluates the quality of the food, facility and inspection process that Ollie maintains.
Ollie offers four recipes: Healthy Turkey Feast, Hearty Beef Eats, Chicken Goodness, and Tasty Lamb Fare. Every recipe is formulated by a Veterinarian who specializes in pet nutrition, and each meal is guaranteed to meet AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials) standards….
