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.
My two dogs have been on this food for several months. They have more energy, better coats, and better stools.
My Puppy LOVES it! He is thriving GREAT PRODUCT! Next going to try the NDF2/Chicken! Can’t wait!
We have been feeding NDF2 to our dogs for years and their energy stays high, their coats are shiny and they are healthy!
Volhard is awesome, easy, nutritious, and my puppy loves it!
Our Bernese Mountain Dog, Lexi, loves this food. She cleans the bowl no matter what protein is added. We have used ground beef, ground chicken and turkey, yogurt and peanut butter, salmon and sardines all to her delight. I believe she feels better and she looks amazing with her glossy coat.
My Rottweiler Berlin loves this stuff, eats it all gone everytime and her bowel movements are solid. Highly recommended
This is an amazing and high quality dog food! Our Lucy has been on the NDF2 since she stopped nursing. She absolutely loves meal time! Our last Rottie had GI issues from the day he came home and we spent countless dollars in vet visits and tried multiple different other “high quality” dry kibble. It was a terrible experience and nothing seemed to be a permanent fix. I just wish I would have known about Volhard at the time. We have had ZERO GI issues or any other health issues. Her coat is incredibly soft and smells great. No dander or greasy hands when petting. Everyone remarks at how soft her coat is, and it is all because of Volhard.
Dogs love it.
Wendy Volhard has spent her adult life in developing a formulated dog food mix that will ensure healthy canines that are fortunate enough to be on her diet. Probably, no single individual has put more effort into the research and development of dog nutrition than Ms Volhard. What make this diet outstanding is that a complete nutritional balance is achieved in the mix: The owner adds the protein. In the raw dog food industry this one stands out as exceptional. There are no questions about quality because it is produced in small batches and lab tested several times. The results will show in your pet’s overall health and fabulous shining coat. Kudos to Wendy! She has done her part: the rest is up to the owner to provide quality protein.
