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.

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.

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.

Delicious food

This food must be delicious, I mixed it with my dog’s old food. She (small havanese) picks through the food and only eats this one!

High quality, amazing product

I started my puppy on the Pursuit formula as soon as he arrived. He has done excellent on it from day 1 and is growing nicely. He loves the food and I feel great using such a nice product. Highly recommend.

The dogs sure like this one

Our vet recommended that we switch from grain free dog food to dog food with grain. We have tried a number of high rated foods but our dogs seem to like this one the best.

HuskyJax and possible overfeeding

HuskyJax, you had mentioned in your 1 star review your dog had soft stools close to almost being diarrhea. In my experience with change overs from other foods it can be very easy to overfeed the Pursuit if you are using the same volume of food versus the weight. Pursuit is denser and has more calories than some foods so using equal volumes can easily lead to overfeeding and the dogs cannot digest too much kibble. They will eat it but often it will escape the digestive process because too much food speeds up the transit time of the food through the intestinal tract and is then sent to the colon. There, this undigested food will pull water and lead to diarrhea and/or soft stools. So, what I try to convey is to go easy when transitioning and feed less than you have been and slowly increase the amount fed to maintain solid stools and good weight. Sorry the food didn't work out for you. I think the food smells good, personally. Dr Tim

dogs Love it

I bought this food because of the 5 star recommendation on Dog Food Advisor. I also like that it incorporates whole grain. I believe dogs need grain as well as meat in their diet! I used Nulo Raw as a topper and they both absolutely loved it!

Great pet food

My English setter, a Llewelyn has been on Dr. Tim’s Pursuit dog food since she was a puppy, over ten years ago. She is a very active dog and thrives on this food. She has been very healthy. Her white and spotted fur coat is shiny!! I highly recommend this product.
