WolfIt Box Dog Food Review

WolfIt Box is a fresh/raw food delivered to your door, much in the same way as Lyka – a brand which has won hearts in Australia in recent years.

WolfIt is made in WA, from 100% human grade produce, being grain free, and preservative free.

I admit at this stage I don’t have much feedback on the brand, but the ingredients seem really good, and I’d love to hear from anyone who’s tried the brand.

Let’s take a look:

What the marketing says

The marketing of WolfIt comes across really well. They say all the right things, and it would seem this is a very good choice for your dog.

The packet says “Strong Bones”, “Natural Weight Balance”, and “Firmer Poops”.

I expect, given the ingredients, these statements will be very true. We’ll look at the why and how shortly.

One downside I find with all these foods, whether wet or BARF, is they do very little for your dog’s teeth. It’s a shame because the ingredients are sound and nutritious, but a dog needs to chew and gnaw to maintain healthy chops – wet/soft foods don’t do anything in this respect as the bone content is ground.

What the ingredients really say

The first four ingredients I consider the most important for a dog, and in the case of the chicken recipe (Paw Lickin’ Chicken Formula), these are chicken, ground chicken frame, chicken heart, and chicken liver.

These are great inclusions, especially if you consider your dog a carnivore (which is what I do).

Liver is something you should feed your dog in moderation, so I will assume from the formula the liver content is the smallest out of the top four ingredients.

Next up we have a mix of seasonal vegetables, and you can expect this mix to change from pouch to pouch or through different seasons. It’s a nice mix, and will hopefully offer your dog a mix of nutrients and antioxidants.

We find a range of fruits as well – blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries – which may provide some minor benefit to your dog.

The good stuff doesn’t end there, and it’s clear the WolfIt recipes have been well considered with the health of your dog in mind. You’ll find superfoods such as hemp seeds, chia seeds, kelp, alfalfa, and wheatgrass. Pre and probiotics for gut health and digestion. Cod liver oil for skin, coat, and wellbeing, and to support the “firmer poops” claim – psyllium husk.

All in all, WolfIt Box comes across super healthy. If only we ate a diet such as this!

  1. Additionally, you get $50 off your first box if you use someone’s referral code (happy to share mine if anyone reading this doesn’t know anyone who’s already feeding WolfIt).

    AND they’ll give you $50 off your next box if you send them a photo of your dog with their WolfIt. Happy little marketing incentives there!

  2. I’ve had my Greyhounds (35 and 40kg) on WolfIt Box for about a month now, just over, and I have to say it’s been absolutely fantastic for them. I love the flexibility of being able to lightly cook the meal or serve it raw, which was great for transitioning Eddie and Remi onto full raw. They had previously been on Lyka and were obviously doing well on that, but the drastic price increase and the belittling customer service had me looking for other options. They also often seemed to get bored with it, so I needed to change it up a bit anyway.

    Frankly, I think they’re doing better on the WolfIt Box than they were on Lyka. They were glossy and happy before and their poops were fine, but oh boy I didn’t know there was room for improvement haha. Both dogs glisten even in low light. My bigger Greyhound even loves WolfIt raw, and previously he’d been a bit of a delicate princess who both couldn’t and wouldn’t eat anything that wasn’t cooked. Both dogs are excited every single feed time, and have finished the bowl every time (which has never happened consistently before). There’s been a distinct increase in their happiness levels too, which I’m finding interesting. An added unexpected bonus is their breath is nicer since changing food.

    I get the Super XL subscription, as WolfIt allows you to effectively buy in bulk for a slightly reduced price by ordering for the combined weight of your dogs rather than individually, plus they give a percentage discount based on the frequency of your delivery. The customer service is absolutely above and beyond, and they’re very receptive to feedback. As they just started nation-wide delivery a month ago, there’s obviously been a couple of very minor teething issues (more with their courier messing up my phone number than WolfIt themselves), and anything I bring up gets dealt with immediately and with a warm reception.

    I’ve tried a variety of fresh and/or raw foods with my boys, and I think WolfIt is the best so far. I’m really happy with them and would happily recommend them to anybody. You definitely want to make sure your dogs are getting some good meaty bones for dental care (I’m in Melbourne so I get mine delivered from The Saltiest Dog, absolutely top notch products and service), but that’s probably standard when feeding any soft food anyway.

    • Hi Candice,

      Another former Lyka Pupper Parent here. I’m glad your pups are loving their new food. I agree with everything you’ve written and will be placing my first order with Wolfit as soon as freezer space allows for it. I still currently have too much Lyka in it to store anything else, but will be phasing in the Wolfit in about a week’s time. I love the flexibility and order options/discounts Wolfit offers, the nutritional content of the food and it being here in WA where we live.

    • Hi Candice
      Would you mind sharing your code .I’d love to try

      • Hey Deb, sorry for the slow reply – turns out I don’t get notifications if someone’s talking to me, oops! This is my referral code. I hope your dogs love it as much as mine do 🙂

        • Thanks you two, I’m another Lyka customer and while I have been SUPER happy with their food, I am now moving into a new place which is costing me double in rent (breakups are fun) and the price is really so high. Wolfit is sounding good and if I buy in 8 week blocks it will save me $100 a month from what I was spending on Lyka, that adds up a lot over the year! I think I will see out this last fortnight then make the change. I even looked into doing a half bowl to mix with good dry food to lower the cost but then realise they charge MORE to get half the food so I don’t think I will be doing that..
