BARK’s new drool-worthy food caters to our favorite breeds, including Pit bulls, Labradors, Chihuahuas, and so many more! Every recipe is nutritionist-formulated with the help of veterinarians and quality food and safety pros to meet dogs’ unique needs and discerning tastes, with bonus add-on options to make mealtimes even more rewarding.

Plus, the price of your food will stay the same (forever!) when you opt into regular deliveries and save an additional 5%.

Dog people can agree on one thing: we want to feed our dogs the best. And with a 100% Happiness Guarantee? That’s just the delicious topper on, well, top. (Sorry, dogs can’t have cherries.)

How Does BARK Food Work?

1. Choose Your Breed

First, you’ll let us know if your dog is a Pit bull (or Pit bull-type pup), Labrador, Chihuahua, or any mix containing those breeds. More breeds to come soon!

2. Personalize Your Delivery

If you have, say, a sweet Lab, we’ll introduce you to the Cock-a-Doodle-Chew recipe specifically for Labradors, give you a li’l info on what it’s all about (like the skin-supporting Omega fatty acids, joint-friendly glucosamine, and overall metabolism-boosting goodness), show you the price (in labs’ case, starting at $36), and provide the option to add any tasty supplements or bonus items, like a BARK slow-feeder bowl.

If all that sounds good, you can choose to check out with a one-time delivery or a subscription.

3. Stare Out The Window

All that’s left is to eagerly await your first shipment, barking at squirrels highly encouraged. In addition to your dog’s new favorite food, your box will include: a welcome letter, a breed-inspired sticker sheet, and a guide to transition their diet safely.

If you choose a custom subscription schedule, your next order will automatically reship to ensure you never run out—just have a drool towel ready for impromptu puddles.

What’s In The Food?

Dog person to dog person, BARK would never give your pup anything we wouldn’t give our own. In fact, we’re pretty obsessive over sourcing and ingredients, and we hope you are, too.


BARK Food uses only 100% US-sourced meats and proteins. Nutrition always comes first where our four-legged family is concerned. That’s why every crafted bite ensures that the nutrients are actually able to do all the good things once they’re in the body. A special blend of prebiotic fibers and live probiotic bacteria also make bellies happy (and your nose happier).

Flavor-packed toppers welcome every picky dog into the clean bowl club. Each single-ingredient topper comes in powder form to better coat each kibble, and contains no fillers or preservatives. BARK plans to continue offering new toppers in the future!

All of our supplements contain zero fillers, additives, or synthetic preservatives, and DO contain a whole lot of bacon flavor. Currently, these include advanced hip & joint soft chews and skin and coat soft chews.


Depending on your dog’s breed, you can choose to add lots of fun things to your delivery, including bandanas, slow feeder dog bowls, tougher YETI x BARK bowls, and beef liver sprinkles for picky eaters.

Will There Be More Flavors?

We are definitely working to broaden our recipe book with future breeds! Our nutritionists are busy formulating the next recipe, but right now we offer a farm-raised chicken and rice formula, wild-caught pollock and rice, and grain-free turkey and sweet potato.
