Time-Honored Family Tradition

Handcrafting premium pet food in small batches is a long-standing Blackwood tradition. For three generations, they've created nutritious, flavorful recipes at their family owned and operated facility in Ohio. Their commitment to tradition and quality starts with choosing the right ingredients. That's why they've spent years building lasting relationships with suppliers they trust and know on a first-name basis.

Time-Honored Family Tradition
Slow Cooked for Better Nutrition

Slow Cooked for Better Nutrition

Blackwood has been perfecting their process of slow cooking for over 20 years to create an appetizing and more digestible pet food. This method leaves valuable proteins, vitamins and minerals intact, making them more bio-available. It helps maximize useable energy, which leads to increased stamina and nutrient uptake, better immune system response and—best of all—less stool.

Promotes Healthy Coats and Tummies

Blackwood recipes are both appetizing and gentle on the stomach. That's because they've included prebiotics and probiotics to ease digestion and help the body absorb nutrients. All formulas except for the 1000 Everyday Diet and 2000 Active Diet are free of fillers like corn, wheat and soy that can cause skin allergies or irritate sensitive tummies. And they're packed with omega fatty acids from natural sources for superior skin health and a lustrous coat.

Promotes Healthy Coats and Tummies
Quality Guaranteed in Every Bowl

Quality Guaranteed in Every Bowl

Blackwood takes care in every step of preparation. They use only the finest all-natural ingredients that contribute to your pet's healthy lifestyle, which means no artificial flavors or colors. And because they own their own facility, Blackwood can ensure the integrity of their diets. All products undergo 360-degree quality control and are tested before they're even shipped, and all dry food is made right here in the USA.

Add in a Performance Mix for Active Dogs

Blackwood's ExPro Total Diet Supplement is made with multiple protein sources that provide essential amino acids plus pre- and probiotics to aid digestion. This recipe combines three meat meals for a concentrated source of rich animal protein. ExPro is made to complement a performance or active diet with 33% protein, 23% fat and omega-3 for a lustrous coat. It can be easily added to your dog's diet for extra energy and endurance.

  • third place in taste test

    By on

    I'm doing a project where I lay out three different foods and see which one the puppy likes best. This one came in third, behind the Nutro Essentials and the Blue Buffalo. My 15-year-old dog stands ready, however, to eat up any unwanted puppy food because in her opinion all puppy food is good food.

    An excellent product that I will continue to buy. This brand was recommended by the breeder as the food they start their puppy’s on.

    Our Irish Setter puppy has had some allergy issues. We tried a few different foods before settling on this one! She loves the food, and her itching has pretty much stopped. Definitely recommend it!

  • Puppy itchy and picky

    By on

    My client puppy was eating Blue puppy food. He had dry, flaky, itchy skin and did not eat all of his food unless I put chicken broth on it. I switched to Blackwood and added Salmon Oil and he no longer has dandruff, and he scratches much less. I am a professional dog trainer. I have fed Blackwood products for many, many years. It is the only food I have found that all my dogs do well on.

  • So Far, So Good

    Just started our new puppy on this food after mixing it with his breeder's food but seems to do the trick. Not perfect, what dog food is, but close enough for good nourishment.
