Our Personal Experience With Sundays

We got the opportunity to test out Sundays in exchange for an unbiased review.

The Ordering Process

Once you click on their website’s “Customize My Plan” button, it takes you to a brief survey so they can determine your pup’s daily caloric needs. This questionnaire asks you about your dog’s gender, weight, age range, activity level, body condition, breed, and whether your dog has a sensitive tummy and is a picky eater.

Then, you submit your name and email address to get your ordering options. On their customization results page, you can choose between their chicken or beef recipes and see the price of each. In my case, their beef recipe was roughly $5 more expensive per week than chicken. And my results showed that the beef recipe ships every 2-3 weeks, whereas the chicken formula ships every 5-6 weeks. However, after your first order, you can adjust your delivery schedule from your account page.

Sundays’ Dog Food Arrives

Unlike some fresh dog food that comes tailored in pre-portioned packages, Sundays’ customization only determines how much of their boxed food to ship to you based on your pup’s portion needs. But your delivery comes with custom feeding instructions based on your dog’s age, breed, weight, and activity level. You can also log into your account to see your pup’s feeding guidelines. The food comes in a tightly sealed bag that’s easy to reseal to keep it fresh.

My picky eater, Tiny, absolutely loves Sundays’ chicken formula. He gobbles up his bowl within minutes compared to his usual reaction to dry food (he often leaves his bowl largely uneaten for hours). We transitioned gradually from his old food to Sundays with absolutely no digestive issues! After weeks on his new diet, he still loves every mealtime.
