Putting the food back into dog food

Every ingredient in our meals is carefully chosen to bring health and happiness to your dog's bowl. We don't use fillers or artificial preservatives, either. Instead, we gently cook each meal low and slow before freezing to lock in the freshness and flavour.

Here's just a few of our favourite ingredients:

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Everything you need to know about Butternut Box

Butternut Box is fresh dog food. Not canned, not dry, not raw. All our recipes are carefully crafted using freshly-prepared ingredients, then gently cooked low and slow at Rudie's Kitchen in Doncaster, before freezing to lock in the goodness.

We use vacuum-sealed packaging to keep our food fresh, without using any preservatives or chemicals, so you can serve them fresh from the fridge.

Well, you've somehow gained the ability to log onto your mum or dad's device and ask this question, all without opposable thumbs, so we reckon it's safe to assume the answer is yes. Yes you are.

We carefully source our ingredients from suppliers that we know and trust, so we always know exactly where our food comes from. We source the majority of our human-quality meat, fish and veg from UK and Irish farmers.

We'll take your payment when you complete checkout, which means you won't be able to make changes to your first Butternut Box delivery. You can make changes to all your future boxes from your Account, including adding any of our Extras or changing when you'd like your box delivered.

Our meals will arrive frozen, ready to be stored in your freezer or defrosted in the fridge. We put just the right amount of ice packs and insulation in your box to make sure your food stays fresh until you arrive home, then you can pop the pouches into the freezer as soon as you can. If it's thawed a little before they reach your freezer, not to worry - as long as the pouch is cold to the touch, it's perfectly safe to serve.

A signature isn't required for delivery, so your box will be ready and waiting for you when you get home. Remember you can download our app to get updates when your box is on its way.

You can manage your box deliveries from our nifty app, or by logging in your online account. From there you can push your delivery date back, or bring it forward. In most cases, we can even get your box on your doorstep the very next day.

We'd always recommend keeping a few spare pouches in the freezer, for those 'just in case' moments. Like if you drop one on the floor. Or your partner accidentally eats one for their dinner. (Yep, that's really happened).

Every dog has different tastes, so if they're not keen on the first recipe they try, don't fret. There's plenty of others on our menu (12 and counting, in fact), so they're sure to find a favourite. Keep switching it up and see what takes their fancy.

Any change in food or diet can have an effect on their tum, which is why transitioning is so important. You'll find a transitioning guide in your first box, so be sure to have a read of that before serving their first meal. It can take up to 14 days for a dog to fully transition to a new food, so stick with it, and remember we're here to help at every step of the way. Of course if your dog has any allergies or sensitivities, let us know and we'll be sure to tailor their recipes to suit them.
