about us

this is who we are
about-us image

My name is Janet Oakes. Several years ago, I started the journey that led to Lovin' Bowl. I love my family, I love to cook, and I love my dogs. For me, the care we take when cooking for our family and the quality of what we prepare for them show our love. It is the same with our pets. They are our family. I could not find a commercial food that agreed with one of my dogs and began cooking for him. The more I learned about commercial kibble, the more committed I became to educating myself about dog nutrition and to make the best food I could.

We all strive to be healthy and we want our dogs to be healthy too. We take them for walks, trips to the groomers, and visit the vet to make sure they are treated for any ailments. What if we could feed better food that could solve many of the health issues or, better yet, prevent the health problems from developing in the first place? The key is higher quality, fresh ingredients. There is truth in the saying 'You are what you eat'. Healthy and fresh is always better than over processed and filled with chemicals.

top quality

The commercial pet food companies make pet food for the ease of the buyer, not necessarily the health of the ultimate consumer, our pets. Kibble is made by the ton and designed to last for years, if not decades. The high temperature and high pressure used in the extrusion process that produces kibble decrease the nutritional value, some say by half. The quality of the ingredients can be very questionable. The 4 D's are legally allowed in pet food. Dead, Diseased, Decayed, and Dying. These are not the things I want my companion to be eating.

perfect balance

Our philosophy is that a balance of nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle can give our pets a longer, healthier life. We can prevent many common health issues by proper diet and nutrition. Lovin' Bowl can provide that nutrition. An ancient Ayurvedic proverb says that when a diet is wrong, medicine is of no value but when the diet is correct, medicine is not needed. Very simple but very true.

long life

Our pets are totally dependent on us for their food. They can't run out to the grocery store or local restaurant; they must eat what we give them. We should feed them as well as we can; they deserve it.

healthy nutrition

because we truly care

Nutrition and healthy eating are the key to a longer and better life for you and your pet. It is just that simple. That is why we use only fresh, human grade ingredients in our pet food. We support the local community by sourcing our ingredients from local farmers and growers.

real food

Real, recognizable foods, not meals or 'by product,' are used in our diets. Our ingredients are the same as we would eat for dinner; salmon fillets, chicken thighs and breasts, Grade A beef and lamb, and locally grown vegetables.

grain free

For dogs, the real culprit with most grains is the gluten they contain. Our main diets use gluten-free, high-quality brown rice. Also, we offer a grain-free line of diets for those pets that do not tolerate ANY grains.

great taste

Our food is minimally processed and gently cooked so it retains its nutrients and tastes great. No chemicals, preservatives, or additives. Just simple, fresh food.

Kibble vs. Wet- the age old argument. It has been shown that kibble does not keep an animal's teeth any cleaner than wet food. Just imagine a dentist telling us to give up brushing our teeth and simply eat a handful of tortilla chips every day! Wet food is more nutritious and less processed than dry kibble.
While most pets digest high quality brown rice, we offer a grain free line of diets for those pets that do not tolerate any grains.
Feeding directions - You can feed only Lovin' Bowl diets or you can mix with your current kibble, if desired. I recommend replacing your current food with Lovin' Bowl diets gradually over a few days. Contact us with any questions.
We are currently working on cat foods and now have puppy foods, senior foods, and critical health diets. Sign up to our newsletter and stay tuned!
