Butternut Dog Food is Pawsome

Do you have a fussy eater or a gas filled stinky dog? I certainly did before I started feeding my dogs Butternut Box Dog Food. Having tried various raw, dried and wet dog foods without much success I took out a Butternut Box trial and was amazed how quickly it sorted out Poppy’s stinky belly. My dogs absolutely love their Butternut Box dog food so we’ve been happy customers for several years now.

Read on to find out why I highly recommend Butternut Box dog food – now with a veggie dog food option too.

Also, I’m delighted to be able to share a Butternut box discount code so that you can claim 50% off your first 2 boxes of a Butternut Box trial. Pawsome right! Sorry couldn’t resist it 🙂


Are you confused about dog food?

I certainly was when I first decided to get a puppy. When Poppy arrived, for the first few weeks I continued to use the dry kibble puppy food, kindly provided by the breeder. Although the puppy food was a branded, well recognised product, I soon realised it was causing Poppy to have an upset stomach, gas (puppy farts are not great right?) and stinky poos. I decided it was time to upgrade to something more ‘odour reducing’.

I looked into other traditional, branded dog food options on the market, which were either:

RAW   DRY  or  WET

Then I discovered Butternut dog food. These guys have created a FRESH dog food that just made sense to me.

Having met the Butternut team at the NEC Motorhome Show I loved their story. The company founders are best friends, whose dogs were ‘stinky’ like mine. I ordered our first box of Butternut at the NEC show and it was a game changer. Poppy is no longer the stinky dog she used to be (well, unless she gets to roll in her favourite eau de Fox perfume!). Coco our younger spaniel is also enjoying her share of Butternut dog food too.

Why feed Butternut?

  • Freshly prepared human grade meat (60%) veg and lentils (40%)
  • No nasty ingredients added and grain-free (hence no stinky dog)
  • Gently cooked then frozen ready for delivery
  • Individual portions carefully prepared to your dogs needs (age, size, activity etc.)
  • Created with vets and nutritionists to ensure all the right nutrients are included

There are several recipes you can select to build your Butternut Box order. My dogs love them all but I think the Swish Fish Dish with veg is their favourite and it’s low calorie too. That said, the new veggie recipe disappeared from their bowls pretty quick too. I’m not surprised when you read the ingredients:

  • Freshly Prepared Vegetables (Butternut Squash, Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Green Beans, Parsnips, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Spinach), Cottage Cheese, Green Lentils, Red Split Lentils, Milled Chickpeas, Potato Protein, Eggs, Cranberries, Flaxseed Oil, Pea Protein, Brewers Yeast, Minerals, Ground Flaxseed, Thyme, Parsley.

That’s it, all healthy and no nasty fillers added in. Pretty good huh, it smells good too. You can read all about the different Butternut Box products here.

What’s in our Butternut Box Delivery?

Poppy’s monthly Butternut Box box delivery always includes:

  • Month supply of meal packs in a variety of flavours
  • Couple packets of Air dried training treats for recall training on our daily walks
  • A LARGE box of Compostable poo bags. These are super thick and by far the best poo bags I’ve used (trust me I’ve tried them all!) I can’t rate these highly enough, just BUY THESE

Your online account is so easy to use and update should you want to change your dogs profile, bring forward or move back your next delivery date or even pause deliveries when you go on holiday. We pop the Butternut pouches in our motorhome fridge and freezer too when we all go on holiday.

Environmental and Sustainable

With delivery boxes provided every few weeks, the team are able to reduce the amount of journeys they make. All deliveries are completely carbon neutral.

We love the fact that the delivery boxes and ice packs can be recycled or reused. They also use a great product called Woolcool, which is wrapped around the pouches with the ice packs to keep everything nice a cold whilst being transported to your doorstep.

The Woolcool wrapping can either be returned, composted, recycled or reused around your home. They’re great for protecting your garden pots and plants during the winter, all my plant pots are wrapped in Butternut Woolcool. For craft enthusiasts, apparently you can reuse your Woolcool for felting projects.

Supporting less fortunate

The lovely guys at Butternut Box also give back to those doggies not as lucky as ours with forever homes. For every new furry customer that signs up the Butternut Team donate a much-needed meal to a homeless dog or in a shelter waiting for a new forever home.
