cali raw dog food review pitbull

Asha & Pirate

I am beyond thankful to have discovered Cali Raw! I’ve had Pirate a year and since we have begun raw feeding ALL of his allergies, warts and skin irritations disappeared almost immediately! And this was after 3 months of trying a combination of creams, foams and a lot of antibiotics. I’ll never go back to anything but a raw diet! He leaned out, his coat is sooo SUPER shiny (we get complimented almost daily), his teeth are clean and most importantly - he’s healthy! Cali Raw has made it possible to give him the best nutrition with the convenience of home delivery. All for a price that’s affordable.

Lily The Masked Frenchie

North Carolina

We were nervous to try raw dog food at first but after hearing/reading all the potential benefits we decided to give it a try. We’re so happy we did and that we found Cali Raw! It’s been a game changer! Lily used to have really bad allergies. Her eyes were red and her paws were irritated from constant licking. Since switching to Cali Raw, Lily no longer has red eyes and itchy paws. She also has improved digestion with firmer, smaller stools. We thought that going raw would be a lot of work but it’s actually pretty easy. Our Cali Raw is delivered monthly so we’re not scrambling to pick up or order dog food last minute like we’ve done in the past. It comes frozen so we just thaw it in the fridge for 24-48 hours before feeding. Lily loves it and licks her bowl clean every time!

Maya & Charlie

Signal Hill, CA

As a new dog owner, I read "buko" articles, watched hours of YouTube videos, and talked to lots of people regarding nutrition for dogs. All data led to a raw meat diet as research show genetic similarities between dogs and grey wolves. Grey wolves are carnivores, so it gave me more reason to try raw meat. During my research, I came across Cali Raw which happen to 1. be local and 2. deliver routinely. Needless to say, I haven't looked back and instant noticeable differences were seen in his coat texture (silk smooth) and is poop (consistent).


Naomi & Gracie

Corona Del Mar, CA

Cali Raw dog food has been a lifesaver for my older dog, Gracie. She refused to eat unless I cooked for her and even then it was intermittent. She was down to 58 pounds and had lost 15 pounds. She was always lean but she was too thin. After I switched her to the raw diet she is finally eating and has gained almost 10 pounds in a 5 week period. She has much more energy and is back walking her average of 3 to 4 miles a day!

Alysha, Frank & Tank

Aliso Viejo, CA

Amazing customer service. Super informative. Convenience is key with feeding raw and they do all that and more. Plus this food helped eliminate my dog’s allergies. His hives were completely gone, skin healed and hair grew back in 3 months! This company is the best! Your dog will thank you for the rest of their life.


Dottie, Binny, & Scarlett

Pasco, WA

I love your guy’s raw products, I love all the information you guys give, knowledge is power and you guys share that. I love it. Thank you guys for all you do from communication to making sure I am a happy customer and indeed I am and my pack loves your raw.

Debbie & Willie

Riverside, CA

This is Willie. He’s a nearly 12 year old boy with skin issues, intestinal issue and was losing more and more weight on “high quality” kibble. Since switching to raw, his skin has has healed, the fur has grown back and he’s slowly gaining weight again. No diarrhea, no vomiting, no hunching over in pain. His energy is back and he’s just a happier dog.


Marcus & Malo

Toledo, OH

Cali Raw is literally the GOAT in raw feeding companies! I wanted to transition my dog Malo to raw years ago but I could never find the time to separate and prep his meals in advance. Cali Raw takes care of all of that! I now have a peace of mind that he’s getting the needed nutrients in each individually packed meal. His rash that he’s had off and on for his entire 7 years was gone in 3 weeks after switching completely to raw! We’re now 2 months in and I’m looking forward to continued health/skin improvements. I just unpack his biweekly box and stack the meals in the freezer. Easy. Also, their customer service is phenomenal and the love they have for their customers is evident. I had a small issue with shipping recently and when I called, they went above and beyond to help me and kept clear communication until the problem was resolved. I’m so appreciative of that. So with that being said.. Just make the switch to Cali Raw, people! You won’t be disappointed.

Sarah & Stormi

Laguna Niguel, CA

We just adopted new GSD puppy and added her to the raw family as well. She gobbles every last bit up! The price may seem steep but it definitely beats taking trips to the vet for refills on allergy medication and shots. Not to mention allergies are just the surface... curious if his joints etc were inflamed as well! Above all else I have to say I’m the most impressed with their customer service. They are absolutely amazing and patient with all of my questions. We’ve gotten deliveries well before they were to arrive (we live in OC local delivery is free!) and the communication couldn’t be more fluid. You wouldn’t want your kids eating cereal for every meal of their lives... your dogs shouldn’t either. Make the switch :)


Anna & Joey

Long Island, NY

Love Cali Raw! After learning what kibble is made of, I was on the search for a really good raw diet for my dog. He has sensitive skin & allergies, and I thought he was allergic to a bunch of different proteins, and the vet said we could take years to try to isolate what he was allergic to, or give him shots. That was too much time with no guarantee, and also I try to avoid giving medicine if not absolutely necessary. I transitioned my dog over the course of 6-8 weeks (a testament to each dog's individual GI makeup) and now he is happily raw fed! We're probably one of the few people based in the East Coast ordering from CA, but even after doing extensive research on more local companies, Cali Raw seemed to have a really approachable, caring team. Their customer service is out of this world. And so we haven't looked at another company! We're looking forward to when they include new protein options, timing which is affected by the pandemic. I love that we can do a subscription with savings, and that I can customize the variety for each monthly delivery. They're super flexible and loyal to their customers, and we appreciate that.

Jose & Lucy

North Hollywood, CA

Lucy has been a member of our family just over a year now and it has been a blessing. We thought we were giving her the best by going with the highest quality and reviewed kibble food. We started noticing Lucy was bored of the dry food and started developing allergies that caused her to scratch so much which I’m sure was frustrating her. A good friend of ours tagged us on a contest for a free gift card for Cali Raw and our new adventure began. Instantly we saw an excitement for food again that got us teary eyed because she was happy. The benefits from this became noticeable in about 3 weeks as her coat was soft and shiny and her allergies had gone away. Instead of her constant scratching she began a new happy dance routine after each meal. The staff has been just amazing always available via call, text & email with a quick response time. Love being able to have my orders scheduled and have it delivered to my front door. Lucy now recognizes the box and sits patiently as we unpack and sometimes discover treat samples that she is always open to give her review on. If it was not for Cali Raw I can honestly say Lucy would be on allergy medication and shots which is the last thing I wanted for her. Even our vet was happy to see her and hear that she no longer is having the allergy attacks. Thank you so much team Cali Raw for all that you do with a passion & always going the extra mile to adding that personal touch. Team Cali Raw for ever.


Eugenia & Prinston

El Monte, CA

My french bulldog LOVES Cali Raw. He makes sure his bowl is clean - none of the yummy goodness in each bag to be wasted with my dog! Super glad to have a local trustworthy raw food brand around us. They host fun community events too so you can even meet the representatives/owner of the brand! They're super friendly and very help and responsive for any questions I've had.

April & Eskimo

Carlisle, Ohio

I used to feed my dog raw and he loved it but it became a hassle and my job keeps me traveling a lot where I would have to leave my dog with family often for a few years a year so I eventually switched to something more practical for my lifestyle. When I came off the road and saw a slight decline in his health, overall desire to be active and of course his higher age I was concerned and decided to get him back on a raw diet. I did a quick online search and found Cali raw. Eskimo is super picky so he was unsure the first time but I followed the instructions you gave for picky eaters and partially cooked a bit of it and mixed that with some of the raw and he gobbled it up. Since that first time, my picky eater has gone from picky to excited about meal time, energetic, cuddly and generally happy/back to his old self again. The nutrition he is getting in the mixture is what dogs should be eating and I support you. I only wish more were educated on the history of dog food and why our furry friends deserve a better diet!


Monica & Olive

Seattle, WA

I cannot say enough good things about CALI RAW! My dog is an incredibly picky eater, and would go through periods of not eating her previous kibble and/or real/fresh diets. She absolutely LOVES the food, and I have noticed beautiful changes in her coat and dry skin following the switch from the kibble and real/fresh food combination. Additionally, the customer service is PHENOMENAL! Such a great company! Thank you for your amazing products and wonderful customer service! You have a customer for life!

Dragana & Bruno

Glendale, AZ

I have been feeding my almost 2 year old American Bully Cali Raw for 3 months now, and the improvements have been life changing for him. Bruno suffers from severe food and environmental allergies. After hundreds of vet visits and many allergy medications later, we finally decided to try raw and we couldn’t be more happy with the complete balanced meals Cali Raw offers. Our dog whimpers every meal, he loves raw! His allergies have already started to improve and we’ve been able to scale back on most of his medications. I can’t wait until he’s completely off all medications. He’s finally back to his normal happy, full of energy, hopping pup! Cali Raw has be SO worth it for us, it gets delivered straight to our door, and all we need to do is thaw it out the night before. I honestly can’t ask for more!


Cody, Lenny & Carl

Newport Beach, CA

I just started switching kibbles to raw not too long ago for my pups. And I was a little skeptical at first but I started seeing the results on my pups, his skin, his joints, his demeanor, his breaths is so much better. He’s started to act like a puppy again, tons of energy, like too much energy but no complaints from me about that cause I love to see my dogs happy and healthy. So I chose Cali Raw for this important reason, and we are not looking back to kibbles anymore. This company is local from where I live, which makes things so much easier for me to go pick it up after ordering online. And everyone there is so nice and professional and they will try their hardest to help you with orders, informations, anything you need to know about raw food.

Georgia & Val

San Francisco, CA

I have a ten year old standard poodle who is the pickiest of eaters and historically had the most sensitive of stomachs. Cali Raw has been the solution - to my relief not only does he now eat properly but has also put on 3 needed pounds. No more loose stool and I finally feel he is getting proper nutrients. Staff is super helpful and responsive. Highly recommend!


Donna & Kali

Newport Beach, CA

It took less than a month to see incredible positive results! Her dark hair was back, very shiny coat, less potty breaks and her stool was small and hard. I highly recommend this food for your furry family members! It really does make a difference!!

Seline, Como, & Leo

Lake Arrowhead CA

Cali Raw is the highest quality raw food, deliveries are always on time and the team always has excellent customer service. Strongly recommended.


Carla & Dudley

San Diego, CA

Cali Raw is incredible. The bowl is always licked clean, the bags are re-sealable, our dog gets a good mix of everything he needs and the raw diet gives him the best bowl Movements. Happy dog, happy PAWrents!! Thank you Cali Raw for a great experience.

Pia & Jax

West Covina, CA

So after months and months of going back and forth about a raw diet for my Jax, I finally decided to go with our local Cali Raw and I’m so glad we did! For starters, customer service is phenomenal. So friendly and always so helpful. We love picking up our food and interacting with the team. They're the best! Now as far as the food, Jax LOVES it. He licks his bowl clean and goes back looking for more. We also love their raw bones as they make great treats and really keep Jax busy while making his teeth puppy white again. I’ve noticed since Jax has been on Cali raw, his digestion has improved and he has more energy. I would totally recommend this to anyone and if you’re still on the fence just reach out. The Cali raw friends are happy to help :)


Babette & Massimo

Antelope, CA

Wow, what can I say about this company! The customer service is outstanding, the food always arrives fresh and properly sealed and always on time. Cali Raw really cares about their customers and their four-legged friends and it shows. My very active Westie male pup embodies what a healthy, balanced diet is all about. His beautiful coat is shiny, no bad "doggie" breath, and well, his poop a breeze to pick up. I tried various other brands on the market today but I found none gave him the radiance he now shows. The other brands had his tummy at times gurgling and upset; not Cal Raw. As a devoted fur Mom, I like how healthy the food is and knowing I am providing a complete and balanced diet for my little sweetie

Jessica & Bodhi

La Palma, CA

Bodhi loves Cali Raw, as soon as he sees me pullout the container from the fridge he’s ready to go! I love it for the nutrition, with a Frenchie they can be prone to so many allergies and he’s had no issues. He’s 11 months old and I can’t wait for him to try the adults selections, I’m sure he’ll love them just as much as the puppy blend. Also customer service has been so helpful and the subscription is so convenient.


Lorena & Rex

Pasadena, CA

Cali Raw has changed the life of my 9yr old pug! Rex was best described as an old chubby, grumpy man. After only a month on Cali Raw dog food he lost 3 lbs and was finally able to scratch his head with his back foot again! He even got a little pep in his step now. We can’t wait to continue along the Cali Raw journey.

Ryan & Bowie

Turlock, CA

First off, I want to tip my hat off for the best customer service experience. I just started the transition to raw feeding my dog and Cali Raw came through with the guidance and knowledge. I did my research and shopped around & what I figured out is that they are the total package. My dog is healthier than ever and I'm never going back to kibble. If you’re on the fence about making the switch, I say do it because my whole experience has been A+ from start to finish.


John, Alexander, & Graham

Palm Springs, CA

My boys are spoiled rotten and will eat only the best, and that’s Cali Raw. They gobble down the beef, the chicken and the turkey like it is their last meal! Of course, it never is…

Lizette & Travi

Santa Ana, CA

Cali Raw has truly helped eliminate our pups allergies. Ever since switching to a raw diet his coat has gotten softer and shiner. Our pup loves it! The team is also great and very hands on. Travi’s vet recently told us our pup is the healthiest he has ever been!


Chelsey & Ichiro

La Palma, CA

We started giving our puppy Cali Raw puppy food in January. Since then, I think my favorite part is that his coat is super soft & shiny! I can't get over it! We've tried both of the puppy food - but he likes the turkey & lamb more. We usually choose the local delivery, and they deliver right to the door. I strongly recommend Cali Raw because the workers are super nice, they have many choices in foods and your dog will LOVE it!

Alexa & Harley

Long Beach, CA

Prior to our raw switch we were feeding Harley kibble. At one point she stopped eating. I looked into raw and had a difficult start, but switching to CaliRaw has been the best decision. It is so easy to change my subscription and Harley now dances when she eats! I love everything about this diet: whiter teeth, shiny coat, smaller poops, and I know she is getting the healthiest ingredients. Thank you so much Cali Raw for all that you do for our pups.


Kathy & Murphy

Alhambra, CA

First of all, the customer service is great. They are super sweet and helpful. Secondly, the food is amazing! Well, at least my dog seems to think so. He devours it in seconds and then he burps. Doesn't that indicate it's delicious-ness? Seriously though, he never skips a meal which he used to do with kibble. He used to get ear infections quite often and hasn't seemed to lately. I believe it's related to eating raw. Overall, Murphy and I highly recommend CaliRaw!! I especially love the added convenience of home delivery.

Ismari & Mylo

Placentia, CA

Cali Raw was the answer to our prayers to feed our 2 dogs that are not just dogs but family. We wanted to feed them nothing but the best because just like us we need healthy food to live a healthy life. Cali Raw are heroes!! You will have a peace of mind knowing you are truly feeding your dog nothing but healthy. I want my babies to live a long healthy life. The food is all excellent quality. Just think if your dog was out on his own what food would he hunt for? Well knowledge is power my friends. When you truly love, you search and search for what’s best for you and your family. Let me tell you that is much affordable than you think. Much easier than you can imagine. Our two babies love the food they know is real food for them. They're healthy & strong. Not to mention the beautiful customer service. They have been there for us all the steps of the way. Forever thankful.


Michael & Mishka

Irvine, CA

As a new dog owner I was overwhelmed with deciding what type of diet I wanted my Mishka to begin. I, like many, switched my puppy around many different types of kibble, until I thought I was feeding him the best one. My dog, Mishka, began pushing away at his food bowl and wasn’t excited about the food after 2 months of feeding him. After doing some research on what a raw diet was we reached out to Cali Raw. They were super friendly and helpful and educated us on an entirely different viewpoint of kibble vs. raw meat. As a college student it has been super convenient and beneficial in so many different ways. To start off his bowels are a quarter of the size they once were, he drinks half the amount of water because he’s absorbing more nutrients in his food, and a compliment I always get is his super white teeth!! Yes a raw diet even helps them maintain good hygiene! Additionally his coat is pristine from all the additional supplements put in Cali Raw to support this! Their customer service is incredible, they have been very accommodating and have made me feeding my dog fun! Thank you Cali Raw, we love you!

Leakana & Buttercup

Sierra Madre, CA

Cali Raw is literally a lifesaver for my dog, Buttercup. She’s a 12-year-old pit bull mix that we adopted from the shelter four years ago. Prior to coming home with us, she had a rough life in a backyard breeding situation. She recently survived surgery to remove cancerous tumors, is currently on medication for vestibular disease, and has a lot of food allergies on top of it all. She did not tolerate dry kibble very well and would have bouts of diarrhea and vomiting. Also, her fur and skin showed signs of allergic reactions to her food. We tried everything from Taste of the Wild lamb formula to Orijens Six Fish formula. They didn’t work. Then, I began to research how to cook her food at home. It was more complicated and time consuming than anticipated, but I cooked her meals for about four months. As a vegetarian, I never had so much raw chicken parts in my refrigerator before! Then, the pandemic hit and I was trying to limit my grocery store runs. A friend recommended Cali Raw as an alternative and it was the best advice we could have gotten. They deliver our orders straight to our door and our picky pooch cleans the plate at every meal. Two months later, her allergies are gone, her bowel movements are regular, and there have been no vomiting incidences. Thank you, Cali Raw, for helping us give our dog the best retirement years she could possibly have! You’ve got a customer for life!


Fey & Cookie

Costa Mesa, CA

I started a raw diet for Cookie at the end of last year. I always had to go to at least two different grocery stores to find everything and needed to prepare her meals, plus buy supplements and take some of time to Meal prep. With the quarantine, I avoided going to many places, so I decided to try Cali Raw. After 4 months I can guarantee that there’s no turning back! Financially it ends up being about the same, it is so much easier, saves me so much time and the team is all incredible and treat us as family. But most of all, Cookie is basically a new dog! She has a lot more energy, her teeth are pearly white, she finally reached an appropriate weight and I can easily say that she loves her food. She keeps licking & licking her bowl to make sure she got every single piece of it. Cookie had a rough start of life and was only 9lbs when I adopted from The OC Humane Society. To compensate that, I obviously spoiled her and also over fed her. She went up to 15lbs and developed some problems on her legs. Her knee cap would easily pop out, causing her a lot of pain and making her limp. With the help of CaliRaw she went down to 12lbs and never had problems on her legs again!

Erika & King

San Luis Obispo, CA

I just have to say how incredible Cali Raw is. From the diet they create, to the customer service. They go above and beyond. Cali Raw brings complete and balanced meals right to your door, making it super convenient for you and for your dog. I love how I know I’m feeding my dog a high quality, healthy diet every night. They’re packed in convenient 2lb packages that are resealable. Easy to carry, easy to travel with, and your dog will leave no leftovers. I’m thankful to have found Cali Raw, because my dog has never been happier and healthier.


Bryndon, Kismet, Chablis, Teddy & Bambi

Costa Mesa, CA

I have always been heavily involved in my dogs nutrition, feeding raw or fresh foods as much as possible. Cali Raw takes the guess work out of the equation with some of the most appealing raw food formulas around, all delivered right to my door. I have 4 dogs from 6-50 lbs and they have all been eating Cali Raw exclusively for months. My labrador's coat is the shiniest I've seen and my picky chihuahua gobbles it up instantly.

Ryan & Cinco

San Clemente, CA

I cant say enough good things about the company, people and product. We were referred by another loyal customer and family friend who told us we had to try it out so we did and our dog has never been so happy and healthy. He licks the bowl clean after every meal. its funny because he was always take it or leave it with the kibble, now he is excited to eat with his tail wagging. He also LOVES the marrow bones as a treat once a week. Overall my experience has been great and I recommend them to anyone. My dog loves the Lamb but we get a variety so it doesn't get old eating the same thing over and over.


Katy & Auggie

Los Angeles, CA

Auggie has been on Cali raw for almost a year now and it was the best switch for him! He actually enjoys mealtime again! We can also see it in his physicality, shinny coat, and regularity that it has done wonders for him. The transition process from kibble was also seamless for us with Cali Raw recommendations, so everything has been so simple. How can you not love the scheduled home delivery? We are so happy to have discovered Cali Raw and look forward to providing Auggie with high quality food!

Pau & Lio

Burlingame, California

I have been feeding Lio Caliraw since March this year. Lio is my third pittie mix dog and I had dealt with a lot of allergies issues from my previous dogs, so I wanted to make sure I fed Lio the best of the best to prevent any allergies from happening at an early age. Lio is a very picky eater, I started transitioning 30%/50%/75% and finally a 100% in a matter of a month. Some of the many improvements I have seen on Lio is his skin. Before caliraw, Lio would shed a lot. I would have to brush him every other day and end up with a brush full of hair. I now brush Lio once a week and his coat is shiny and he sheds the bare minimum. Lio has been maintaining a very healthy weight while continuing growing muscle, prior caliraw, Lio had some minor ear infections that were my red alert to invest on raw food as vet said it could that he was developing allergies. I am so happy I found caliraw. They made me feel part of the family since day one. The delivery to my door every month its so convenient and serving the food to Lio is as easy as getting my coffee serve in the morning. Thank you!
