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.

Quality Guaranteed in Every Bowl

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.

  • Good stuff

    By on

    My dog used to eat dry dog food all the time. When he had several teeth pulled, the vet suggested I mix in some chicken broth and let it soften up before serving it to him. Well, that worked so well, he will now not eat any dry food unless it has the broth in it. I've tried several diff brands, based on various internet lists of Top 20 Dry Dog Food Brands, hoping I'd find one that he likes by itself, with no success. So I guess I'll stick with this one as it comes highly rated. As for the chewy.com service, I rate it a 5. Ordered the food, came two days later with no shipping fees. Gotta love that!

  • My Dog Went Nuts for This Stuff!

    By on

    Our local pet food store gave me a sample to try and my dog truly went ga-ga over this food. He has been very finicky about dry food up to now, but apparently he finds this EXTREMELY palatable. We've all gained weight this past winter so I'm hoping this "lean diet" recipe will help him slim down a bit.

  • Great for a Senior Dog

    By on

    I have an 11 year old dachshund/basset hound mix. I switched my dog to this food about 6 months ago and she loves it. The smaller size pieces seem to do very well for her sensitive stomach.

  • Good nutrition / great taste

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    I bought this for my Aussie who had ACL surgery last year. I had to switch her food due to an allergy to tomatoes, though she's lost a lot of weight and maintained it on her old food. She loves this food and is able to maintain her current weight on Blackwood, which is absolutely necessary under the circumstances. I would definitely recommend this food.

  • So far so good!

    By on

    I switched my two older small dogs (a dachshund and a pug, 10 and 7 respectively) over to Blackwood after I tried it on my large dog (he eats the white fish large dog recipe - it really helped with his stomach problems!). 'The Girls' seem to like it - the food smells appealing though they're not picky eaters. The kibbles are a good size for older/smaller dogs.

  • This may be a nutritionally sound product but my pets do not like it

    By on

    My pets are not really finicky eaters per se, but they truly did not like the taste of this. And if they won't eat it, it really doesn't matter if it's healthy or not

  • Best dog food I have ever found.

    By on

    Blackwood dog food was recommended by a dog trainer and rescue group. We used it the first time on our rescue Golden and it was amazing how his coat improved and was more active. We found a sweet large skeketon of a dog with little hair at the animal shelter and fed her the Blackwood recovery formula. Wow, she quickly gained weight, her health improved and her coat came in where we could see she was a Bernise Mountain dog. Gorgeous. I trust thr Blackwood pet food brand. It has proven itself over a and over again.

  • My Lab loves it!

    By on

    I had tried many high quality foods for my Lab and finally found Blackwood (a couple of years ago). Most of the "high quality" foods are also way too high in protein which will pack the pounds on your dog #Adkins does not work for dogs# haha My Lab has a gorgeous coat, enjoys great health, and is able to maintain his weight at a proper level with this food. AND...he'll eat it! The healthiest food on the planet is no good if your dog won't eat it #mine turned his nose up at a bunch of them#. I spoke with the people at Blackwood before taking the plunge and it was the best call I've made. I cannot recommend this food highly enough!
