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

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.

  • She likes it!

    By on

    I like the small size of the nuggets of food and my dog apparently likes the taste. She has no problem digesting the food and it seems to be good for her skin. She does smell a little like fish but that may be because I also add fish oil most days; however, I add fish oil to the food I feed my other dogs who eat a different brand of food and they don't smell like fish. Maybe I will try Blackwood Buffalo Meal & Field Pea Recipe Grain-Free Dry Dog Food.

    I have a greyhound with a sensitive stomach and this works so well for her! I was feeding her Blue Buffalo, but her fur started to fall out and her stomach was not happy either. When I switched to Blackwood, everything cleared up! She has a beautiful, full coat now and seems more energetic than ever. Highly recommend!

  • Rottweiler approved

    By on

    My 5 year old Rottweiler was having a lot of gas and a grumbly stomach. The Blackwoods sensitive skin and stomach seems to be working. The lower protein level, 23%, is easier to digest for him. Good job Blackwoods.

  • Smooth transition

    By on

    I researched dog foods on the dogfoodadvisor website as I will only feed my dogs a 4 or 5 star rated food. I found this one to be great quality. I needed a sensitive stomach food for one of my rat terriers who was having terrible gas with the current food and besides the fact that I couldnt take it anymore I had to assume it couldnt feel good for him. I figured Id be in for a fight to get him to eat it but to my delight both of the rat terriers ate it right away. The gas is gone and both doggies are happy.

  • Concerning

    By on

    I was concerned when I opened the bag of dog food and it didn't look the same as previous bags of Blackwood catfish meal I've purchased directly from actual distributors of Blackwood. The pieces were bigger and the food smells different.

  • Did Not Agree With My Dog's Tummy

    By on

    Our foster dog has a sensitive tummy. She did fine on another kibble we bought. When I saw the Blackwood, I thought a change of pace would be good. four days into it, she threw up. Thought it was just one of those episodes. Two days later, she threw up a huge pile. It smelled horrible, like either rotting cabbage or dog poo. She is not a poo eating dog and it was the only change. I personally do not recommend it, but that does not mean it would not be good for your dog...just not for mine.

  • Great Product

    By on

    We love the Blackwood Brand and have been dedicated to it now for over 2.5 years. We went with the Catfish Meal & Pearl to give our dog some variety from the salmon and the Lamb. He loves the food and his coat is still super shiny.
