A Year on Just Right by Purina | Personalized Dog Food
This post was sponsored by Just Right by Purina. All opinions are my own. Thanks for supporting the brands that support Hey There, Chelsie.
One year ago, I announced my partnership with Just Right by Purina and made the switch to put both of my sweet doggos on their personalized dog food. Today, I’m so honored and excited to say that we’re continuing on with our partnership and both Teddy & Rosie will continue to eat their personalized kibble from Just Right by Purina that they are madly obsessed with and both love.
If you are new around here, you might not know that we are THOSE dog people. We refer to Rosie and Teddy as our babies, refer to each other as their mommy and daddy, and spoil them rotten. Rosie has about three dog beds across the house and Teddy gets to sleep in the bed with us every night. They absolutely light up our lives and make our worlds go round. So, naturally, we truly care about the kind of kibble they eat on a daily basis and are very, very picky about their food.
When Just Right by Purina reached out to me last year, I spent a week doing as much research as I could. Switching kibble brands is not something you can do lightly – especially when you have dogs who have been on the same kind of kibble for two years. And I was ASTONISHED to find such an incredible kibble philosophy – because that’s honestly not something you see often from big pet-name brands. We decided to make the switch and now, a year later can say we have no regrets. We have seen nothing but improvements in terms of Rosie’s skin and Teddy’s coat. They both have plenty of energy to go around, their poops are solid (important info) and they love their kibble. Teddy actually has figured out how to open up his JRBP boxes by himself so that he can get to his kibble faster.
So, what’s the deal with Just Right by Purina? What makes them different?
First of all, Just Right by Purina believes in 100% natural ingredients with vitamins and minerals and NO BY-PRODUCTS (or artificial flavors or colors or preservatives.) Just real, simple ingredients – with lamb, chicken, or beef being the FIRST ingredient in every kibble. Real ingredients for real dogs. In my humble opinion, that’s the only kind of kibble to feed them!
Second, Just Right by Purina has the ability (and commitment) to make personalized blends of kibble, tailored to each of my dogs’ needs. Rosie and Teddy are two entirely different dogs in two entirely different stages of life. Rosie is 5 years old, and drama queen bee status. She loves to sleep, sulk, and sit on the front chaise lounge, which is her throne. Teddy is two. He’s goofy, he’s busy, and he is ALWAYS on the go. They compliment each other perfectly, are the best of friends, but are completely and entirely different. Before we switched to Just Right by Purina, Ted and Roo were on the same brand of puppy kibble. That wasn’t something Dustin and I gave much thought to, but we’re now realizing how important it is to have them on food that is more appropriate for them in their different stages of life. They are on their own personalized formulas from Just Right by Purina – because they are different dogs who have different needs!
At the beginning of the year, I sat down and decided to create new blends of kibble for each of them, since their needs have changed over the last year. The JRBP site is so intuitive and easy to use. Here’s how it works:
Go to Just Right by Purina’s website and right in your dog’s name and click “let’s get started.”
- You’ll be guided through a series of questions that help Just Right by Purina personalize your dog’s food. What is your dog’s body condition? Is she over or underweight? Is your dog energetic or lazy? Is your dog’s coat dry or shiny? Is your dog’s poop soft or solid (legit information to take into consideration.) What about her joints? Do they hurt? These are all things that Just Right by Purina takes into consideration when creating a personalized kibble blend for your dog. How many calories does she need? Does she need extra minerals to support sore joints? This questionnaire helps JRBP narrow in on exactly what your dog needs (or doesn’t need) in a kibble.
- You then get to choose your protein base. Does your pup prefer salmon, chicken or beef? Rosie actually HATES Salmon kibble, so she got chicken. We decided to give Salmon a try for Teddy’s blend to see how he felt about it (and he loves it. Then again, I’ve never seen a kibble that dog didn’t like.)
- Just Right by Purina also gives you the option to adjust the kibble blend based on dietary restrictions. Rosie, for example, needs to be on a grain-free diet because she has some allergies to certain grain blends. So, JRBP allowed me to choose a grain-free option (another way they go above and beyond to create a blend of kibble for my unique dogs.)
- After you finalize your blend, you can choose how big of an order you want. This is also super awesome because you can get a 21 day supply to see how your dog feels about it, and you can go back and make tweaks to the blend before ordering a bigger supply.
We’re so happy we made the choice to switch to JRBP last year and are looking forward to working with Just Right By Purina again this year.
Please bear in mind, I would never, ever recommend a dog product that I didn’t personally use on my dogs, so I hope everyone knows that I genuinely feel like Just Right by Purina is a kibble brand that every dog owner should look into and consider switching to for their furbabies.
