Is Tuggs Worth the Price?

October 7, 2022

  • Tuggs is a freshly-prepared dog food made using human-grade meat & fish, fresh veg and insects. Tuggs is delivered to you frozen in order that the food retains the majority of its nutritional value during transport. Our food has at least 65% meat & insect in each recipe. Consequently, our food is likely to cost more than supermarket dog foods or some raw dog foods.

  • So why pay more per month for your dog food just to include a fresh diet?

  • Reduced veterinary bills.

  • Firstly, we believe that over time you will actually see reduced overall costs for your dog by feeding them Tuggs. Why is this? We believe by feeding your dog fresh food that you will see a healthier, happier pooch and lower veterinary bills. In fact, you could see healthcare costs reduce by up to 82%.

  • In 2009, Guide Dogs Queensland ditched commercial dry food and began feeding 200 of their dogs a fresh food diet. The results? “Healthcare costs have dropped 82 per cent. Serious skin and digestive issues have all but vanished and healthier teeth and gums have been observed, along with reduced body odour and fresher breath”[1].

  • Best version of your dog for longer

  • Secondly, research shows that dogs fed freshly-prepared diets live, on average, 32 months longer than dogs fed processed kibble.[2] Thus, we are confident that you will see the best version of your dog by feeding them a fresh diet such as Tuggs.

  • We are aware that Tuggs may be slightly more expensive than what you currently buy, and so we want Tuggs to be available to anyone looking for the best diet for their dog.

  • We have introduced two ways to make that happen.

  • Firstly, when creating your personalised plan for your doggie, you can opt for a half portion. This means that we will send out half the required daily portion for your dog, costing you half the price, and you can mix this in with your current dog food to get the best of both worlds.
    • Tuggs Half Plan

  • We also offer discounts off your first box for all orders, meaning you have a chance to try Tuggs affordably before committing to a full-price plan.

  • When your doggie joins the Tuggs ruffolution you receive personalised meal plans with multiple recipes to ensure that your dog never gets bored, delivered to your door at a time that suits you. Our subscriptions are flexible and all aspects of the plan can be edited/paused at any time.
