Ollie is a New York-based dog food delivery company that offers human-grade, custom meals for dogs. Founded by Alex Douzet, Gabby Slome, and Randy Jimenez, Ollie aims to transform the pet food industry by giving pet owners a healthier option for their pets.
Ollie pet food is fresh food, cooked in small batches, at low temperatures to preserve natural nutritional content. It goes through the same safety protocols that companies do for human food and the brand is dedicated to creating complete and balanced meals for dogs. Ollie knows that feeding your dog a natural diet can improve their overall health and well-being, increase energy levels, make their coat shinier, help manage their weight, and extend their life by up to three years.
Dog Meals start at $3 per day for small breeds. Owners have the option to choose a 100% Ollie provided subscription diet for their dog or, rather than subscribing to the fully portioned meals, a supplemental subscription to feed some Ollie to their normal diet for added nutrition, without paying the full price.

Just as eating the right foods is critical to a person’s well-being and health, the same goes for our furry companions. Ollie uses fresh, human-grade ingredients, packed with superfoods, fruits, and veggies. These real ingredients are gently cooked to help preserve and pack in nutrients. They are also grain-free and contain absolutely no by-products, artificial flavors, preservatives, or fillers like corn, soy, or wheat.
Ollie offers four flavors of food for dogs with fruits and veggies, as well as protein sources:
Whether pet owners order the turkey, beef, chicken, or lamb, Ollie only uses the highest quality meats in its fresh dog food recipes. The company’s hormone-free chicken, high-quality beef, and turkey come from human-grade farms in the United States and the premium, pasture-raised lamb comes from free-range farms in the United States and Australia.
Dog parents will find healthy ingredients like blueberries, sweet potato, peas, carrots, and spinach in their pup’s meals.
However, it doesn’t stop there.
Ollie also adds in superfoods like cod liver oil and chia seed to ensure every meal is packed with essential vitamins and minerals that are beneficial to your dog’s diet.
Designed by a specialized veterinary nutritionist, all four of Ollie’s recipes meet AAFCO nutrient standards for all life stages and sizes, including big and small dogs.
When creating a personalized meal plan, pet owners create an online profile for their pet. Information such as your dog’s breed, activity level, age, food allergies, and current diet all factor into Ollie’s helpful algorithm to create a meal plan tailored to your dog’s body.
Several other pet food delivery services have a flat-rate fee or charge for shipping. With Ollie, pet parents never have to worry about paying for shipping. Ollie has free shipping with every fresh dog food delivery order.
Meals are delivered in pre-packaged trays, in a cardboard box — both of which are recyclable. It will come with a special scoop to portion your dog food properly. The amount of food and scoop size is determined by the details entered in your online pet profile quiz. Your delivery will also come with instructions to help transition from dry dog food to Ollie’s cooked food.
Food trays need to be kept refrigerated, but because it is packaged and shipped frozen with a jute liner for insulation, the company says that it will stay fresh in the box until midnight on the day it is delivered.
If you try Ollie, but your pet doesn’t like it, you can get a full refund for your first box from this subscription service.
This dog food brand doesn't just make great grain-free dog food — Ollie truly cares about all canine-kind. The company donates 1 percent of its revenue to rescue organizations, including the Sato Project. Every meal purchased through Ollie's delivery service will contribute to the cause.
One issue many pet owners find when ordering from Ollie is the company’s lack of a one-time purchase option, whether online or in a pet store. Ollie is a subscription-only company and doesn’t offer any samples or trials of its meal plans.
While the company states this is to ensure that your pet is getting the nutrition they need on a long-term basis, many pet owners would like to try the product to see if their picky eater likes Ollie’s food before dedicating themselves to a monthly subscription.
Discounted trial subscriptions may be available, and Ollie offers a 100% refund on your first box.
Just like competing meal delivery services like Pet Plate, Spot & Tango, and NomNomNow, Ollie doesn’t deliver outside of the continental United States. So, pet parents in Alaska and Hawaii will have to look elsewhere for fresh-cooked dog food.
