Smalls makes high-quality, human-grade fresh food for cats. The company has done an excellent job of designing its food to be both healthy and appealing to cats with different taste palettes.
But what about their canine siblings? Does Smalls make food for dogs?
Is there a Smalls for dogs?
Unfortunately, no. Smalls does not make dog food. However, we’ve personally tested a bunch of similar brands (with the help of our dogs) to find similar services that do a great job. Here are our top picks:
The Farmer’s Dog
The Farmer’s Dog is one of the most popular fresh dog food brands. They make human-grade food cooked at low temperatures to preserve vital nutrients, as opposed to the harsh methods used to roast and extrude kibble.
All of The Farmer’s Dog’s meals are cooked in their USDA-certified kitchens in New York, and all recipes are formulated to meet the needs of all life stages. This food is then frozen, packaged with precise portioning instructions for your unique dog, and shipped fresh to your door on a regular basis. You’ll never need to remember to restock your pet food.
Signing up is easy. Just answer a few basic questions about your dog and they’ll calculate the precise number of calories your dog needs, as well as which recipes they may prefer. Select which recipes you want to try and how often you’d like them delivered, and you’ll get a preview of what your daily/weekly price would be. You can cancel your subscription or skip shipments at any time.
Our dog Max loved The Farmer’s Dog. In fact, he liked it so much that we secured a 60% discount for our readers on their first box. Just click the button below to automatically apply the code.

Nom Nom Dog Food
Nom Nom is another favorite here at The Dog Tale. We fed it to our dog Hobbes and he was a huge fan. Nom Nom works similarly to The Farmer’s Dog and Smalls, offering fresh, human-grade food tailor-made for your dog on a regular subscription.
Nom Nom used to offer cat food, like Smalls, but they discontinued that product line to focus on their dog food. Nom Nom offers the same four protein options as The Farmer’s Dog: beef, turkey, chicken, or pork. They also offer pet gut health products, including a probiotic for both dogs and cats.

Ollie Dog Food
Ollie is another excellent option for fresh dog food. It’s similar to The previous brands with two notable exceptions.
First, Ollie recently introduced its own line of human-grade, baked food. This dry food is baked at low temperatures, versus the extremely high heat used to manufacture kibble. This means more of the ingredients’ original nutrients remain bioavailable to your dog. We prefer fresh food to dry, but you can order a mixed plan that includes both foods. This allows you to provide a variety of textures to your dog and to cut down on costs.
The other offering that makes Ollie noteworthy is their telehealth service. Every Ollie subscriber gets free access to a vet chat service that enables you to ask certified veterinarians questions about your pet. This could be useful if you need an answer at a time when visiting a vet isn’t convenient, or if you have a less urgent question that you don’t think warrants a trip to your usual vet.

Raised Right Dog Food is ideal for protein lovers. Their food has almost twice as much protein as some other fresh food brands, and many of our readers who have tried it have continued coming back for more. We love that Raised Right packs its food with protein instead of filling it out with carbs and other filler ingredients. We also love that it’s a family-owned business instead of an equity-backed company.

Just Food for Dogs
Finally, Just Food for Dogs is an interesting option for pets with specific health issues. To be clear, Just Food for Dogs offers several traditional recipes for healthy dogs, but it’s their vet-approved recipe line that sets them apart. For example, if your dog needs a renal diet for kidney health, they have that option.
And despite the name, the brand also offers Just Food For Cats! This means you can get a meal plan for every pet in the household with the same service.
