Urban Wolf is the world's original grain-free biologically appropriate
real food diet mix for dogs that allows you to make your own
powerful homemade dog food quickly, easily and very economically.
Cooked or Raw Meat?
This is a very important issue.
We RECOMMEND all dogs start with precooked meat unless your dog has
already eaten a raw diet;
Then gradually transition to raw meat after a few months (if
you wish to feed raw).
If you are unsure if your dog should be eating raw meat, we recommend
you ask your Vet.
Some dogs that have spent their lives eating commercial kibble have
a tough time with raw meat so please have compassion for your pet
& PRE-COOK your meat. When using cooked meat with Urban Wolf you
dog will not lose any of the benefits of this superb diet (*make sure
you add all the cooking juices to the food).
We have had dogs eat nothing but Urban Wolf with cooked meat for years
they have done as well as the dogs on raw.
Please click here for FAQ on Cooking/Baking
If you are unsure about raw meat, please ask your Vet if it
is suitable for your individual dog.
Raw: Healthy dogs can digest raw meat easily, their systems
were designed to eat raw meat and have a great capacity for naturally
dealing with the high bacteria levels. If your dog is in good health
and you want to start feeding raw meat, just make the change. We recommend
starting with raw beef or lamb and then try poultry after a couple
of weeks. You dog should have normal stools and if there is any GI
upset and he hasn't been overfed or hasn't eaten anything else, he
may not be ready for raw. Go back to precooked meat.
In general, healthy dogs can eat raw meat.
Do not feed raw meat or raw bones to your dog if you have young
children or the elderly in your home. Always wash food and preparation
dishes & utensils in hot soapy water after use and use a disinfectant
cleaner on your preparation surface. Wash your hands well. You
must handle raw meat in your home and fridge with care.
Urban Wolf is an excellent diet choice for your new or older puppy.
Suitable for all breed, all size, all age puppies, Urban Wolf has
been used by breeders and dog owners for over a decade.
We are often asked if this diet is good for a large or giant breed
and our answer is YES!
Unlike commercial foods, Urban Wolf allows your large or giant breed
puppy to grow gradually over the first year which in turn allows the
joints to form, bones to calcify and the tendons and ligaments to
strengthen. Commercial kibble will cause your puppy to grow too fast
or some of the 'large breed' puppy kibble have slower growth but the
puppies get fat. When dealing with growing puppies NOTHING compares
to a well balanced whole food diet designed for growing youngsters.
This is what Urban Wolf with the Balancer does.
your puppy the best start, it's essential to include our Urban
Wolf 'Balancer' with your Urban Wolf. To prepare your puppy's
food, simply follow the instructions on the Urban Wolf package and
add 1 tbsp of 'Balancer' per cup of Urban Wolf dry mix. Combine all
the ingredients and feed.
Please use the Balancer for the first 12 months.

your dog or puppy first starts on Urban Wolf he will need more food
for the first 2 months because his body is craving the good nutrition
that his new diet is supplying.
After the first 60 days (or so) he will settle into a more predictable
usually it's approx. 20% less than when he started. He may start leaving
some of his food.
If this happens and he is otherwise happy and normal*, simply cut
back on his next meal by the amount he left behind and feed him a
little less from then on.
(*please do not confuse leaving food with anorexia or illness. If
your dog is leaving food and is not acting normally, please consult
your Vet as he may have an underlying health issue.)
If he starts gaining or losing weight, decrease or increase portions
slightly until he is at optimal weight.

to make your own highly digestible homemade dog food. And when
we say easy, we mean easy!
To Expect When You Start Feeding Urban Wolf
When dogs/puppies start eating Urban Wolf they generally
lose the unhealthy body fat they gained while on
Kibble (kibble does not supply the protein that Urban Wolf
does so the more you feed your dog kibble trying to get them
to build muscle, they can only put on fat and they get fat as a result).
Urban Wolf on the other hand feeds the body to build up essential
muscle BEFORE they put on fat (this takes approx.
the first two months on UW). This is why some seem ravenous all the
This hunger is usually short lived (first two months on the food),
then they settle into normal eating patterns.
Please scroll down to see some of the Frequently Asked Questions pertaining
feeding Urban Wolf for the first time.
1. "My Dog/Puppy seems hungry all the time".
If your dog or puppy has never eaten a whole food/real food diet before,
he may eat more food in the first two months than average. Dogs &
puppies sense they have been starved of real food nutrition and their
bodies need it to rebuild. So, for the first two months your pet may
seem 'hungry' all the time. When this happens, it's ok to feed a little
more than our feeding guidelines. Feed to 'bowel tolerance', which
means you feed as much food as your dog/puppy will ea WITHOUT getting
a soft or mushy stool. This will be the correct amount of food to
naturally feed your pet. If you own a puppy, please increase rations
every couple of weeks until appetites wane at around 5-6 months, then
cut back to regular portions.
2. "My dog/puppy
is leaving some food at meal times".
If your dog/puppy is leaving food at meals, it's a sign of overfeeding.
After being on Urban Wolf for 2 months most adult dogs automatically
reduce their daily portions on their own If you notice your dog or
puppy leaving some food, cut back on portions. If your dog is refuses
to eat 2 entire meals in a row (& he/she is not getting any other
food/treats), it may be a sign of an underlying Veterinary issue,
call your Vet immediately.
3. "My dog is losing weight".
Dogs that have been reasied on kibble often carry around unhealthy
body fat and limited muscle mass. When dogs start on Urban Wolf they
will start losing that unhealthy body fat and will start building
muscle at the same time. Losing the fat will happen faster than building
up new muscle so sometimes in the first 3 weeks you will think your
dog is losing weight. Don't panic! Increase portions to bowel tolernace
and be patient. Within the next few months your dog will buld up all
the muscle he needs for his lifestyle and then he will start laying
down the fat. If he actaully startes geting fat, reduce portions.
If your dog is losing weight and is still hungry, please increase
portions as per 1. above. If your dog is
eating well, has been de wormed and is still losing weight it may
be an underlying Veterinary issue, please consult your Vet.
4. "My dog is gaining weight"
If your dog is gaining weight, cut back on daily portions. If your
dog is gaining weight and is eating below our recommended Feeding
Guidelines for an average dog his/her ideal weight, he may have
an underlying veterinary issue (ie thyroid), please consult your Vet.
5. "My dog is fussy and won't eat Urban Wolf & will
only eat meat or treats".
If your dog is otherwise healthy and only 'want's to eat treats and
meat from the table, the problem is you (the owner),
not the dog (who is smart enough to have trained
you well!). The best remedy for this is to stop all treats and food
other than Urban Wolf and discipline yourself as
an owner to help your dog get the best nutrition. We have never
met a healthy dog that we could not convert to Urban Wolf as long
as you, the owner followed these easy directions:
a. The first place to start is to eliminate all treats
and table scraps for 2 months.
b. Pre cook your meat in 4 cups water & use the
cooking water as part of the 'broth' in the recipe.
c. Feed your dog at the same time of day and if he/she
leaves any food pick it up and reduce the days's rations by the amount
that was left over at each meal.
d. Do not feed snacks in-between meals.
e. Do not leave food down longer than 20 minutes.
f. If you own more than one dog or a cat, they may
be intimidating the other dog at meal time, offer the poor eater privacy
to eat his meal (ie: in a crate or favorite quiet spot).
