About Dr. Tim's Dog Food

Premium All-Natural Pet Foods and Treats

Dr. Tim's offers honest, nutritionally sound kibble, wet foods, dietary supplements and freeze-dried treats designed for every life stage. The high-quality ingredients include low-ash protein along with the right blend of carbohydrates, fats and fibers to allow your pet to lead a healthy life.

Foods Made to Match Your Pet

When shopping for Dr. Tim's pet foods, you'll notice the labeling indicates an activity level. That's because they're made to complement your pet's lifestyle, with ideal ratios of protein, fat, carbohydrates and fibers to help her thrive. You'll find recipes that are specially formulated for active pets, low-key pets, extreme athletes and those in need of weight management.


This food is designed for the sporting dog that's active more days than not—dogs who hunt or jog every day, herding dogs, police dogs and the like. It's made for maximum digestion, an important consideration for these dogs that's often overlooked. Protein types and levels, fat types and levels, and fiber sources are formulated to maximize performance and recovery.


This is a diet intended for the dog who lives a normal lifestyle—sleeping on the couch, running around the backyard or going on car rides, walks or hikes and basically just living the good life. The only regular exercise she might get is tail wagging when she sees you at the end of the day, or some loving nose nudges


This food is for dogs who are serious about working nearly every day for long periods of time, such as sled dogs and dogs who hunt most days of the season. It's extremely high in fat, high in protein and low in carbs, with the highest levels of essential omega-3 fatty acids and loads of antioxidants. Performance, endurance and recovery are all enhanced.


This diet is intended for the dog who has put on some extra weight. High protein allows your overweight dog to be more active, and moderate fat allows her to feel satiated so she doesn't beg—an essential part of the equation. The omega-3 and antioxidant profiles help reduce the inflammatory stress that's prevalent in an overweight dog, too

Treats That Deliver

Dr. Tim's freeze-dried treats are formulated for both cats and dogs—perfect for multipet households. They're made from 100% real, USDA-inspected meats from Wisconsin. And since they're freeze-dried, you can give your pet all the nutrition and flavor of raw meat without any of the mess or inconvenience.

Top It Off With Nutrition

Dr. Tim's Flavor Booster is made of 100% real, USDA-inspected beef liver powder from Wisconsin that is freeze-dried to maintain more nutrients. It's perfect for use as a food topper to encourage pets to eat and enjoy their meals, which makes it a great choice for finicky dogs or those who are ill or tired of the same formula.

About Dr. Tim's

As a veterinarian and accomplished musher, Dr. Tim Hunt understood his dogs' need for a food that promotes stamina, endurance and performance through proper digestion. Armed with a cement mixer, a cache of ideas, and an aversion for other diets on the market, Dr. Tim took to his Michigan garage on a mission to formulate a food that replicated a natural, wild diet for his Alaskan Huskies. Today, Dr. Tim's focus has since expanded to bring an honest, nutritionally sound food—sourced only from North America's highest quality ingredients—to every dog.

Wrong package item

The bag shown is incorrect. A green bag comes in its place and it is not the same! They are different in size and one ingredient off.

Love this kibble!

My active standard poodle has eaten Dr. Tim's Pursuit for three years and is thriving. She snarfs it up with gusto every meal.

Dr. Tim's Pursuit via Chewy.com

I bought Dr. Tim's Pursuit locally for several years. Dr. Tim Hunt DVM is a friend and excellent dog food formulator. My local supplier exited the petfood supply business with inflationary pressures and concerns. My dogs do so well on Pursuit that I switched to Chewy autoship. Our delivery arrived yesterday without a hitch. A+ to Chewy. A+ to Dr. Tim Hunt!

My active dogs love this food!

My dogs absolutely love this food! I am no longer loving the price!!! It’s too bad that Dr. Tim’s got on the inflation bandwagon. I will be looking for a local source and a new brand! It’s also too bad that Chewy cannot negotiate better prices for their customers!

Dr. Tim’s dog food GSP

Our GSP loves it! She’s fit and very active. We’ve had her on Dr. Tims since she’s been a puppy.

My dog wouldn’t eat it

The first time I gave I this to my dog, she loved it, so I immediately ordered two more bags. After that she wouldn’t eat another bite of it. I tried mixing it with wet food, chicken, broth etc. That didn’t seem to help much. I spent way too much money and was left with 3 full bags, unfortunately.

Excellent option if you don't want grain free

Our 60lb mixed breed (picky eater) puppy is just about the age where he should no longer be on puppy food, and I spent a while trying to decide what to feed him as an adult. I'm skeptical of totally grain free food, and this sounded like a good potential option. Although our puppy is not a working dog, and the Dr Tim's food selection guide might suggest we should go with the more "house pet" variety, at some point you have to trust your instincts about your own pet. Our dog has always been both very energetic and very lean. He goes to a dog daycare once a week, and we can't count how many times a dazed looking employee has asked us at the end of the day, "Does he ever slow down?" Nope! Welcome to our extremely full lives with a large, enthusiastic, joyful bouncy ball of a dog. So... I chose this variety instead. So far he's doing extremely well on this food. I poured some into a small dish and set it aside an equal dish with his previous food, and he gave both a sniff before diving into the Dr. Tim's first. Given that he's a fairly selective eater, we breathed a sigh of relief at the first hurdle passed. Next we integrated it into his diet slowly; he's had some issues with gastric distress in the past, but this has been totally fine. We've had some issues (with his puppy food) with him getting bored at mealtimes and wandering away, but due to our other pets we cannot free feed. This food is fairly dense in caloric and nutritive value, and I feel good about him not being under nourished if he eats a smaller portion some days. All told, it's a win so far. We'll continue to feed him this and update if our experience with it changes.

Gave us bloody diarrhea for two weeks

I really hoped my dog would like this dog food but she has shown less interest in it despite being a not picky eater at all. Then the food started giving her loose stool and diarrhea with blood in it. She sometimes even whines in pain and can’t hold her diarrhea for days. Avoid this brand/product!!

Option for Purina

We have over twenty dogs, different breeds, different ages that have recently developed upset stomachs after eating a sport dog food we've used for years. Dr. Tim's was recommended to try by a fellow dog lover. We were worried that the change would make matters worse. Surprisingly the dogs stomachs have been so much better and they love it. Delivery is super fast! We can honestly recommend to try Dr. Tim's Active Dog Pursuit Formula Dry Dog Food.

Good food but...

I fed a bag of this to my young active Brittany. She did well on it, liked it and her weight held nicely. The only problem is, it only comes in a 5 lb and 40 lb bag. The small bag only lasts a few weeks and the big bag is WAY too much when you are only feeding one 23# dog. It takes forever to get through and would sit for months before the bag is gone. Hopefully a medium sized bag is released sooner rather than later, like the other formulas have, so I can start feeding it again.
