Our First-Hand Experience with Naked Dog Box

Naked Dog sent us a free bag of their food for an honest review of their product. We loved how the food was delivered right to our doorstep (similar to home meal subscriptions for people, but without the cooking). The plain, brown paper bag it comes in is sturdy, neutral and natural. However, there was no built-in way in the packaging to tightly reseal the bag which could make it lose its freshness more quickly. The box it came in had a description of the product along with the nutritional info and a little fun cutout bowtie for the pup. And the best part is Harry, the dog who taste tested it, gobbled it up!

What Do Customers Think of Naked Dog Box?

Don’t just take our word for it, here are some other customer reviews of the product.

Positive Naked Dog Box Reviews

I really enjoyed this box and Buddy did too.  Buddy isn’t particular with food, but I really loved that this was a healthy food. Buddy isn’t the most active dog, so I like getting customized food for his age, and activity level. – Subscription Box Mom 3/9/2017

Georgie ate every bite in about 2 minutes flat, and then she begged for more! I was shocked, and I’m happy to report she’s definitely been more interested in mealtime since we’ve started getting The Naked Dog Box! – Christina, The Lazy Pit Bull Blog 4/5/17

Negative Naked Dog Box Review

I love that it’s made in the USA, all natural and grain free. But that’s where it stops! As for the customer service I am not Impressed, ordered my first box for my dog to try. Seemed like it took for ever to get here! I recommend it to some family and friends who’s dogs only eat grain free I helped them order there first boxes to try. Well to day one of them informed me they received an email stating they were refunding the money and would not be sending the boxes however they could reinstate my subscription. We are different people with different dogs and homes. They then made the suggestion to my friend to try my dogs food what company does that. They proceeded to say that if their dogs like the food then they can start the subscription up. Isn’t the whole purpose of the promotion to try the food to see if you fur baby likes it?? After all of this my business and everyone that I have mentioned the NAked Dog to will be made aware to not to give there business to! I’m sure there’s other companies out the that would be glad to have our business! -Jessica B., Facebook 1/26/17

So you’re considering going Naked? Well here’s a quick video that shows you how happy you and your pup could be as a result of a subscription.

Is Subscription Dog Food the Future?

We think so! With the rise of healthy, subscription meal services for humans it’s only a matter of time before the pet food industry catches on. Naked Dog is certainly not the first to think of this idea though. Check out our review of other companies that auto ship dog food as well as our pet box subscription comparison review for some additional options.
