Before I got my first dog, I was under the impression that dogs would eat basically anything that was placed in front of them; I was very wrong. It turned out that my Maltese-mix rescue was picky and vocal about it, not to mention prone to food allergies. A cheap, store-bought bag of kibble was suddenly off the table, and I found myself cooking his daily meals myself using human-grade groceries (a noble endeavor, but a time-consuming, messy, and expensive one, too). Luckily, I soon found that certain dog food brands are doing things differently, so I didn’t have to spend hours a week prepping my pup’s dinner.
Take Sundays for Dogs, for example. This vet-created brand even goes as far as to create a plan that’s personalized to your dog’s needs. Plus right now you can get 50% off (and free shipping) with code CYBERSALE.

What’s Sundays For Dogs Food?
Sundays for Dogs was created out of necessity. When veterinarian Tory Waxman’s dog got sick, she and her husband (an engineer) were desperate to find healthy dog food that could help without tons of prep — and ended up creating it themselves.
The process takes fresh meats, fruits, and vegetables and air-dries them. This makes it shelf-stable and ready-to-eat, but still keeps all of the nutrients intact. Choose from two different air-dried recipes: a beef-based one and a chicken-based one. Both are made to meet the nutritional needs of adult dogs as per AAFCO’s dog food nutrient profiles.
What Shoppers Say
According to reviewers who have awarded this brand an overall 4.8-star rating, it’s “so easy” for the humans, but even picky eaters “devour it.” More importantly, many owners report that after a few weeks of Sundays, their dogs have shinier coats, better digestion, fewer allergies, and an easier time going to the bathroom (or, more accurately, going to the lawn).
What Are The Ingredients?
Made from over 90% fresh meat, organs, and bones, this USDA beef recipe was preferred by dogs 20 to zero in a blind taste test against one of the top-selling premium dog food brands.
Reviewers seem to agree. “[My dog] used to barely touch his old food,” one wrote. “Now that we switched to Sundays, I can barely put the bowl down before he’s going at it.”

“My toy poodle Joan is a picky eater,” one reviewer wrote, but this food did the trick. “Joan is finally eating in regular portions at a regular time. I feel less stressed, her energy levels have improved, and her general health and weight seem much better.”
