History Of NRG Dog Food

It all starts with our hands!

We at NRG dehydrated dog food hand make our diets for dogs using 100% fresh ingredients grown by North American farming families.


20 years ago the founders of NRG, (a veterinarian with a Ph.D. in canine nutrition and a fellow food scientist) collaborated on a new series of diets for dogs that were Balanced for All Life Stages. These diets were made only from fresh ingredients and were frozen. These original diets were balanced using whole food ingredients.  The diverse menu of ingredients met all the nutrient requirements of the dog without a vitamin premix.  A world wide first, and still an NRG Exclusive.


It became apparent to NRG that frozen diets didn’t make sense in our changing world, and NRG Pet Products became the first company to offer dehydrated nutrition for pets. We built our own dehydration technology, and make diets specifically formulated for dogs from 100% edible fresh whole foods that are table grade quality, grown by North American farming families. Our North American farm direct supply ensures quality….. Our dehydration process builds on this quality locking in nutrition, intensifying flavors and controlling pathogens.


NRG dehydrated foods are not only nutritionally superior they are the greener choice. Our dehydration method uses renewable energy and does not contribute to greenhouse gas. Transportation of dehydrated foods use less fuel than frozen because they are lighter. By using only fresh North American ingredients, we guarantee quality and minimize fuel consumption as opposed to purchasing overseas. Fresh ingredient choices come to us farm direct using less transportation fuel than leftovers streamed to kibble manufactures after being processed for human consumption.

Our green approach, builds value. We are the most cost effective dehydrated diets to feed, we are the only diet that is balanced without a premix. 100% truly natural nutrition.

We are manufacturers, not simply marketers whose product is made by someone else and branded. As a result we offer the best dehydrated products at the best cost per calorie.

We left the ice age behind. Join us on our voyage. More nutrition, more quality, more value!

Our Mission

​​​We believe dogs are an extension of our families and thus should be fed the same as we feed ourselves.  Using the same quality ingredients we would feed our own children and ourselves we created NRG™ dehydrated dog food.
Unlike most, if not all other dog food companies, we manufacture NRG™ dehydrated dog food in our own facility on our own farm in Canada by hand.  After 20 years we still make the food the same way and will not cut corners to compromise our quality to compete on cost.

All of our ingredients are sourced in Canada or USA only and delivered fresh or flash frozen to us.

You will not find NRG dehydrated dog diets in big box pet shops or pet food warehouse chains, only owner / operator stores that understand the value of a quality whole food diet. 

We are a small company looking to help our canine companions one doggie at a time.  

NRG™ three letters that will change your dogs life!™
