Don't complicate your dog's food. Get to the meat of it.


Here’s a fact: Dogs don’t like the taste of cardboard. Dogs have, and always will, love meat — tender, mouthwatering meat. Unfortunately, this simple truth tends to get lost in the shuffle as brands today try to incorporate the latest human “diets” into their dog food products. But ALPO isn’t fooled by these overcomplicated, flash-in-the-pan trends.

After all, we know what dogs need and love. And we know that those things haven’t changed — at least not in the eight decades we’ve been around. Nope, dogs don’t yearn for things like quinoa or gluten-free flaxseed, or anything remotely complicated for that matter. Dogs want the taste of meat.

Back in 1936, our founding fathers in Allentown, Pennsylvania understood this exact principle. That’s why their focus was on developing simple and nutritious dog food that delivered on the big meaty taste they love. 83 years later, we’re still devoted to that same goal. And we don't plan on straying any time soon.
