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!

Feeding Guidelines Are Per Day




DAYS 1-5 : NDF2, raw or lightly cooked meat (80/20 beef recommended), and water

DAY 6 : Use an alternative protein source such as mackerel, salmon, greek yogurt, cottage cheese or sardines in water

DAY 7 - half day fast : Rest from food to cleanse the digestive system. Puppies and senior dogs should not be fasted

Puppy Feeding Guidelines


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.

The Transition

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.

    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.

    My Rottweiler Berlin loves her Volhard dog food! She eats it twice a day with ground beef or fish, never leaves anything in her bowl and her stool is always solid. I cannot thank you enough for this product. Keep up the excellent work!

    Love it

    Volhard has been an easy transition. My 11 & 12 year old mixed breed boys have been on this food for a year now and they have energy, they sleep well, beautiful coats, no vomiting, no diarrhea, no bad breath, strong teeth, reduced skin allergies...I could go on and on. We will never go back to kibble. Yes, it's a little more money per month but we are saving hundreds in reduced vet visits. And we have peace of mind. Thank you Volhard!

    My dog's health, coat, and skin have been amazing since feeding this product. She no longer suffers from horrible allergies that left her miserable. She has no need for allergy/itch medications. Her health and wellness checks are always superb.

    So much easier than I imagined!!

    Posted by Judy Berry-Price on Jun 10th 2021

    Our first dog, his breeder suggested we keep him on a raw diet. Well, that did not last because 13 years ago, it was difficult to manage the meals using all raw. When we got our new puppy, our breeder (the same breeder we had for our 1st dog), asked us to keep his diet raw and introduced us to Volhard. We pre package the ingredients, put them in the freezer to keep. When we are ready to mix, we thaw the meat, add Volhard to our storage container and mix up a batch which lasts three days. It is so easy and our puppy loves it!! Thank YOU Volhard :)
