Every person has different tastes and their own unique dietary needs. We may not think about it as much, but our furry friends also have their own preferences and dietary considerations. That’s why I was fascinated to learn about Just Right by Purina, a brand new service where you can customize a blend of dog food made specifically for your dog and your dog alone.
Here’s how it works: You visit the Just Right by Purina website and answer a simple questionnaire. You pick your desired ingredients and answer questions about things like your dog’s breed and activity level. Then, you can customize the blend with your doggie’s name and photo, and have it shipped straight to your door. We thought this sounded like a perfect option for the family dog, Bob, so we showed Grandma the website so she could pick exactly what Bob would get.
It was fast and simple to set up the order, and Grandma was able to pick Bob’s favorite meat (Lamb!) and select a grain-free option perfect for his dietary needs. In just a few minutes, Bob’s Blend was born!
The fact that we could customize this exactly to what Bob needs in his diet was great enough, but the fact that it also gets shipped straight to you door was an extra sweetener. Dog food is heavy, and Grandma usually needs help bringing those heavy bags inside from the car after she goes shopping. What a great option to make life easier – and you don’t ever have to worry about running out or dashing to the store!
So how did Bob like his very own, tailor-made blend of dog food? Well, this is a true story: As I was quite literally sitting here in the middle of writing this post, the mail arrived. I was surprised to see a card from Grandma. I opened it and read the most beautiful thank-you card telling me all about how Bob was loving his food. That wasn’t timed or planned – talk about serendipity! So, I’d like to share part of what she said in the card, because it tells you exactly what Bob thinks:
He loves it and I think he feels more satisfied. He was always so hungry! The bags with his picture on them are so special! The rest of the family has enjoyed them too. Bob seems more calm now too.”
I’ll be sharing more of our experience with Just Right by Purina over the coming months, along with expert tips and information, so stay tuned!
