Accountability 

Life's "ruff" sometimes, and we get busy. We're here to help keep you accountable.

 

Just like a gym keeps you accountable for your fitness, the HPC keeps you accountable for your dog's nutrition. 

We know it may not be realistic to prepare 30 days of fresh meals a month. But something is better than nothing, and we are here to help you do that.

Community

There is nothing more powerful than community, especially when it comes to having a dog. 

Want to know the best places to get bulk meat? Ask the community. Need some major dog anxiety tips like yesterday? Ask the pack.

Whether you're looking for tips, guidance or advice, the community has your back. 

psttt - we're all pretty dog obsessed. So it's safe to say we all know a thing or two about what's worked for us and what hasn't.

Why you can no longer afford

NOT TO make your dog's own food

Add a little bit of body text.png

- Fresh food delivery companies are MORE expensive than DIY

- Even providing only 10-15 fresh food meals per month can promote nutritional abundance. 

- Feeding fresh decreases the amount of chemicals, synthetics, preservaties and toxins that your dog consumes over their life

- Homemade meals ensures that you know EXACTLY what's going into their food

- Dog's actually don't like eating the same thing every single day.

"Making homemade meals is SO WORTH IT because I can tell my dogs health has improved and they have more energy."

The HealthyPup Club keeps me accountable. It's easy to just put off making fresh meals, but being apart of this community has kept us on track. 

I am also getting the hang of it! The tips on how to work with your local butcher were a life saver. 

Thanks HPC :)

Carina! He LOVED it! I was so happy to see him eating homemade food! It’s scary when you feed them just kibble and all I can do is just pray that there truly is something in there that is beneficial. But with fresh food supplementing I’m CONFIDENT that there are things in there that are beneficial! :)

Can I just add that it gave him more energy as well!

What's the investment?

The #1 mistake people make when making homemade dog food is that they use recipes that are not balanced by a professional nutritionist. Which can lead to major deficiencies. 

 

Or worse…

 

They just throw food together on their own, which can cause even WORSE health issues to occur since essential nutrients, such as calcium, is often overlooked. 

Or...

 

So you could just pay a nutritionist to make a recipe for you. Which costs on average $100 USD per recipe, and around $500 per year to account for food rotation recipe changes. 

 

The costs can adds up... 

 

Or, you can join The HealthyPup Club for a low monthly payment of $14.99/month to receive numerous nutritionist formulated recipes, nutritionist support, and everything else we mentioned previously.

Meet the pack leaders

Hi, I'm Carina! I am a founding team member of Wag!, the largest dog service platform in the US.

In 2020, I finally got a dog of my own and began immersing myself in everything dog nutrition and wellness. 

After sharing my research on TikTok and growing a dedicated community of 230K pet parents, it became apparent that there needed to be a more affordable and accessible way to learn how to make homemade dog food in order to build a nutritionally abundant life for our dogs.

So, I decided to create the first community that is helping hundreds of pet parents do exactly that :)

Hi, I'm Margaret! Head of Canine Nutrition here at BetterPup. 

I have experience in herbalism, nutritional therapy and naturopathy; specializing in formulating diets for dogs with chronic dis-ease.

Naturopathy and optimal nutrition have remarkable results. Why? We are made of food - proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals are the building blocks of life. We are literally what we eat!

Recently, I was able to extend the life of my pug, who I was told by the vet was on her last days, by 5 years due to my therapeutic diet and treatments. 

No, this program is NOT for dogs with disease. If your dog is struggling with health issues, schedule a free consultation with me here to see how I can help. 

This membership is NOT for:

- Dogs under 12 months old (coming soon!)

- Dogs with specific health conditions that require personalized recipes or guidance. Schedule a 15-minute free consultation with our Heath of Canine nutrition to see if nutrition therapy is right for your dog.

Why should you make homemade food for your dog?

It's cheaper than buying pre-made real dog food 

You save time and money on future vet visits giving them the nutrients they need 

It's healthier. Did we mention that?

It's an opportunity to bond with your dog. Seriously. We get so excited to make our pup pretty meals :) 

Frequently asked questions

Why do I need different recipes each month


Great question! We believe it's healthy to incorporate different types of fruits and veggies into your dog's diet. Plus, our dog's do get tired of eating the same thing day after day... wouldn't you? We don't recommend changing up the protien every month, however; studies have shown that doing this creates a healthier and stronger gut. With our guidance, you can learn to do this too.




Who creates the recipes?


We have a team of educated nutritionists that will make balanced recipes each month. You'll learn how to determine exactly how much your dog needs depending on their weight, age and activity. Our goal is to empower and educate you.




Do I have to talk to a nutritionists?


Not at all. Our group calls are a chance for you to learn or ask any questions that you have. Please note that these calls are not for the nutritionist to create completely new personalized recipes.




What if my dog has a specific disease or health condition?


At this time, we are unable to provide specific support for any health condition, disease, or issue.




Can I cancel anytime?


Yes!




What if I don't have enough time?


That's the power of meal-prepping! We will also give you suggestions of what brands to buy as "backup" for when you go on trips, vacations or just simply run out and forget to make more. It happens.
