Natural Diet Foundation 2 (NDF2) is hands down the best available dehydrated all-natural diet that allows dog owners to add their own protein (cooked or raw) making protein rotation easy and flexible. This diet (once protein is added) provides your dog with a fresh, healthy, and balanced meal every time they eat.
NDF2 supports the liver, kidney, heart, lungs, stomach, and digestive tract with the included freeze dried USDA inspected organ meat (liver), vegetables, purposefully chosen grains, various supportive herbs, and other functional foods. Raw feeding has never been simpler!
NDF2 was formulated for adult dogs of all breeds sizes and activity levels under the guidance of a Board Certified Veterinary Nutritionist. This diet can be used to feed puppies including large breed puppies - please follow our puppy feeding guidelines.
This diet has the quality you can see and smell the moment you open the bag and serve this up. Watch your dog lick the bowl clean following this delicious meal! Made with human edible /food-grade ingredients that are non-GMO, organic, preservative-free, and sourced in the USA.

Build a Bowl
Every dog is special. But it’s not just their personality. Every dog has unique nutrition needs based on their breed, size, shape, activity level and many other factors. The best way to help your dog be the best version of themselves is to build a healthy, balanced bowl that’s a combination of grains, vegetables, proteins, hydrators and supplements that are specific to your pet.
When you build a bowl here at Volhard, you will start with the choice of foundation mix. For better planning, it’s helpful to think about the dog you plan to feed and their issues first. This is where you can determine the "personality" of your bowl.
Build-a-Bowl is a fun way to find out what the nutritional value is in a bowl of Volhard! Then you will be asked to add a protein for a delectable super-powered meal for your dog!

Puppy Feeding Guidelines
FOR PUPPIES LARGER THAN 60 LBS AT 6 MONTHS CONTACT US
NDF2 can be stored unopened in a cool dry place for up to 1 year. After opening,
NDF2 must be stored in the fridge or freezer and is good for 6 months after opening.
Add a small amount of NDF2 and meat to the kibble you are feeding your dog now and mix with water. As the week progresses, gradually increase the amount of NDF2, meat, and water, at the same decreasing the kibble by a corresponding amount, until you have phased out the kibble. (If you are feeding the same meat protein for six days, you may want to feed another protein - canned mackerel or cottage cheese - on the seventh day.) At the end of the transition period, weigh your dog. Weigh them again after four weeks. Increase or decrease the amount you feed accordingly.
Recommended Protein: 80/20 beef.
Our pup has been eating this from the start and eats wonderfully Healthy happy girl
Dogs like it and are healthy--weight is consistent. Food cleared up "soft stool" problem in 3 days.
Dogs have been on it for years No digestive issues Perfect coats - great customer service
This is worth every penny! I have seen such a difference from feeding kibble and I will never ever feed anything but Volhard. This is a blessing of a company. They care about your dog like it is their dog. We lost our Cane Corso to heart failure and if I would have known about this company I could have saved him. Please know what you are giving your dog. When you feed Volhard you put what you want in your dog's meal. Thank you Volhard!
My dog, Millie loves this food. She is more energetic and her coat is so soft and shiny since she has started eating it. I would highly recommend the Natural diet foundation 2. It is a dog food I can feel good about feeding my dog.
My dogs eventually snub all food after a few meals, even homemade food. This is the first dog food they don't snub, they have been eating for nearly a month and cannot wait to eat every meal. So glad to have found this! Bonus, it smells great sort of like surfing mix!
I love this product
We are a 501c3 nonprofit, breeding and training golden retriever service dogs. Health and temperament (and trainability) are key for us. Which is why we switched over to Volhard NDF2, and couldn't be happier. Thank you so much!
We have a Cavalier King Charles, at our last vet visit the vet said she is probably one of the healthiest cavaliers she has ever seen. She ask what are we feeding her which I replied Volhard NDF2, plus I make her pumpkin treats. She said keep it up her heart, ears, eyes and coat are all in excellent condition. I have to say NDF2 has made a difference in her health. We will not feed our sweet fur baby anything else.
