Welcome to Puplore! We are avid dog lovers just like YOU and believe dogs should be fed just as well as we are. We want to make it easy for you to cut through all the choices and find a good food for your dog.
We are dedicated to finding the best dog food brands and formulas so that your dog can live a long and happy life.
PUPLORE is adapted from the word 'folklore' meaning - "the traditional beliefs, customs, and stories of a community, passed through generations by word of mouth".
Being dog owners we are a tight knit community that trusts not only our professional veterinary opinions but those thoughts and suggestions our pup owning friends have given us over the years.
Of course Gunnar gives us his opinion the best he can but we also lean on our immediate 'dog family' that consists of my sister and her family's Labrador Leo, the in-law's Jack Russell Terriers Mylee and Lexi, my best friend's Boxer mix EZ and plenty others.
And more recently my other's sister's new pup, Reba, has been lending her taste buds and reactions on our new YouTube channel.
With that said, Puplore is YOUR community to pass on proper dog nutrition information and general dog tips so that we all can help our furry friends live their best lives!
We know that there are a ton of dog food choices available out there. Marketing and advertising make it hard to know which ones are really the best. There are a few great dog food sites online that offer reviews on dog foods, but I find that there are still too many choices to sift through.
We look at ingredients, company ethics, company history, and recalls to decide on what to feature and recommend.
If you are here, it is because you want healthy and wholesome food for your dog. You are tired of hearing about dog food recalls and deaths from toxic food. You want your dog to have a diet that is as close to natural as possible, giving him/her all the nutrients he/she needs to lead a long and healthy life.
You love your dog, and you want to feed it well!
There are many diets you can put your dogs on, such as a raw food diet, freeze-dried diet or canned food diet. I recommend a dry food diet, as this is the most convenient and it will actually keep your dogs teeth healthier, the kibble will help keep your dogs teeth clean. Canned food can cause tooth decay because it gets stuck in their teeth.
I also recommend feeding your dogs grain free foods, as dogs are naturally carnivores and are not supposed to consume grains. Grain-free formulas are often more expensive, so I have included some brands that contain grain, for a more affordable option. Many dogs do fine with some grain in their diet.
Of course we feel your dog's diet is of the utmost importance but there's other things you want to know as well so we will do our best to cover topics as in-depth as possible. If you read or see it here on Puplore you can rest assured that countless hours went into making sure it's the right food or product for your pup.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to leave a comment or reach out via our contact page. We always respond! Or if you just want to share you and your dog's story we'd love to hear about that too!
Thanks for stopping by and becoming part of the Puplore family!
