This dog loves The Healthy Barker


There’s no doubt about it… we love our dogs! And we love to hear about how your pooch loves The Healthy Barker.

Here’s where you can read up on other people’s successes and stories having switched to our complete and balanced meals. Have one you’d like to share? Send us an email at .

MaggieI am so excited to have found Martina and The Healthy Barker. As a small animal veterinarian in the Waterloo region, I was keen to find someone who would work with a veterinary nutritionist to make sure home made meals were nutritionally complete. Who has time to do that at home? With Inflammatory bowel disease and allergies increasing in frequency, it can be challenging to find commercial diets that meet all a pet’s needs. I have been feeding our puppy Maggie the Healthy Barker puppy food and she loves it. Even more important is how good you feel as a pet owner when your feeding a nutritious, balanced, gently cooked and whole food diet. Thank you so much Martina, you have been amazing to work with.  Sincerely, Barb and Maggie

I cannot recommend the services of The Healthy Barker enough! They go above and beyond to help provide my fur babies with nutritious, well balanced meals! Delivery is always prompt, and when needed, Martina has worked with me to customize a diet based on my dog and cat’s allergies, health concerns and dietary needs (yes, although they don’t advertise it, they do cat food, too). Above all, Martina has always been there to lend her passion, experience and expertise on animal wellness and nutrition and for that I am so thankful! The Healthy Barker truly cares about the health and wellness of your pets and it shows through their high company standards and the quality of their food.  Mariana (Monty & Mazzi)

Having recently moved to the Waterloo area, I found The Healthy Barker online after searching for a healthier food alternative for my aging Golden Retriever (than dry kibble). Martina, the owner/operator, was quick to respond to my inquiry and offered to drop off some samples of her fresh food product for Willow to try. Willow loved the food. Needless to say, Willow now eats only The Healthy Barker, with much enthusiasm at her meals times – no more finicky eater. I would highly recommend The Healthy Barker for the quality of the products as well as the knowledge and enthusiasm of the owner! Debra

Emma and I met Martina at the Pound Dog Rescue Howler in October of last year. Emma tried a sample of her Chicken Delight, which she really enjoyed. I switched my dogs over to The Healthy Barker, which was a healthier choice for my babies. I love that she delivers right to the door within a week of ordering. I would highly recommend The Healthy Barker to any of my friends, family and clients. Laura, Emma, Charles and Dwight Green

This month, Kitchener had it’s first Pet Expo where there were many ventors selling products and their business. One of the ventors, The Healthy Barker, was a business that makes dog food for your dog. All is natural, for they work with a pet nutritionist for what your dog would need in their diet. It smells so good that you would think that it is your food that they are eating. Comparing the price of canned and kibbles is the same as the home made food. My little pomeranion would have an upset stomach every day, was lethargic, sleeping constantly and would not play. Since I have changed her food to The Healthy Barker she has energy to play, she sleeps less and wants to go for walks constantly. Because my pomeranian is so small she has a problem digesting her food, but with The Healthy Barker food, I put it down and it is as if she inhaled it, it is gone. I would recomment this business for the home made dog food.A Happy Owner

My Wife and I have a 2 year old Basset Hound and a 4.5 year old Mixed Breed and we switched them to The Healthy Barker products about 6 months ago. We were concerned about many ingredients we didn’t recognize, preservatives and high fat content of the gravies the food is swimming in.

The dogs inhaled the food, we could recognize what was in the food and the difference in their behavior was apparent, with more energy, solid poops and less gas. It is particularly important with the Basset Hound to not gain weight, as they have difficulty losing it as they age. Homemade quality food is the key to a long a happy healthy life. We are really happy with The Healthy Barker’s food and intend to continue to feed our puppies… how about the kitties? Pete and Chris Carter

Martina with Shasta and LilyI have two very picky puppies and it has been a challenge getting them to eat. I have tried so many things, and knew they weren’t getting the balanced nutrition they needed. Martina has been working with us to create a variety of meals they will eat and that are nutritionally balanced. I am happy to report that my girls are both eating regularly, and with gusto! The girls are so excited (see it in the pic here!) when she comes to bring them food, they can’t wait to dive in. I am thrilled with the results I have seen with The Healthy Barker and am so grateful to Martina for everything she has done to help us out. Thank you! Kristen, Shasta and Lily
