Premium All-Natural Pet Foods and Treats

Premium All-Natural Pet Foods and Treats

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.


ACTIVE: 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.

Casual Lifestyle

CASUAL LIFESTYLE: 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.

Extreme Athletes

EXTREME ATHLETES: 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.

Weight Management

WEIGHT MANAGEMENT: 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

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.

  • I’m in Love!

    By on

    My dog is a picky eater AND has several food allergies. After researching foods online, this dog food “appeared” to be safe but it’s hard to tell. When we got the bag and gave her a “tiny” bit, she gobbled it right down. This never happens. We usually have to coax her into eating. I was optimistic, but still hesitant. After transitioning her to the new food, I can honestly say Dr Tim’s has given us “a new dog”. She wakes up in the morning wanting to eat. This has never happened in the 4 years that we’ve had her. I am super excited for her! Thank you!

  • Dr. Tim's vs Fromm

    By on

    I had been feeding my dog Fromm for some time and chewy quit carrying it. Thought I was going to have to switch to another site to get it. Chewy offered a really good deal to try some other quality brand. I'm glad I did because now my dog loves Dr. Tim's. I put Fromm in half the bowl and Dr. Tim's in the other half and he only eats the Dr. Tim's. Thank you Chewy for working hard to keep my business. No need to ever change where I buy from. Great customer service !!!

  • My Llewelyn Loves Pursuit!!

    By on

    My seven year old Llewelyn has been on Pursuit (and Momentum during bird hunting season) since she was brought home from her breeders. She has stayed at a perfect weight, is active and healthy and never turns her nose up at her bowl of food! Thank you for developing such a great food for my very active canine.

  • Wonderful Food

    By on

    I have three sporting dogs that I have recently started feeding Dr. Tim's Active Dog Pursuit Formula dry dog food. In a short period of time I have noticed improvement in their coat, energy and health. All three dogs eat the food with no problems at all, one of them being a very picky eater. I highly recommend Dr. Tim's.

    My 4 1/2 month male copper Siberian Husky loves the food he's always super excited about chow time. This is the second bag of Dr. tims food that I have purchased for him and I still have around a 1/4 of the last bag. My brothers dog which is an ame. Staffordshire terrier doesn't care for his food but my brother buys for him but I can tell he really enjoys Dr. Tim's kinesis! This is the only food we will be buying in the future.

  • Ingredient list not impressive

    By on

    The first four ingredients are not what I would consider top of the line. Where is the meat? Chicken meal, really? There are many other foods on the market at this higher price point which offer more for your money. A breeder recommended this with my pup, but we have transitioned from it.
