New Company Lets You Design Your Own Natural Pet Food Online and Have It Delivered

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

Your dog or cat is different from all the rest.

Ever wish they could have their own special food, based on their specific nutritional needs, delivered right to your door? Now you can, thanks to RedMoon Custom Pet Food ( In fact, you can even have each custom-blended bag named after your furry friend.

Just like people, every dog and cat has unique dietary requirements. Besides the breed, age, gender, size and energy level of your pet, other factors such as allergies play a major role in properly determining which diet to feed our pets. The ability to customize your pet’s food also gives you the flexibility to adapt to their ever-changing physical health. With RedMoon, you can even custom fortify their food with exclusive supplements such as an Immune/Antioxidant Booster, Hip & Joint Reviver or even a natural Skin & Coat Supplement.

The concept of an online, customized pet food manufacturing and delivery service is a pet industry first. It’s the brainchild of Jason Bailey, a long-time industry insider. His business model has been years in the making, based on pet owner feedback and his own personal experience with pet nutrition. He believes that pet owners have become mistrustful of pet food manufacturers and now want to be actively involved in feeding their pets the proper nutrition.

As pet owners, the people behind RedMoon have recognized the need for a natural pet food that could address each of their dogs’ special health and nutritional needs,” said Jason Bailey, founder and president of RedMoon Pet Food Fresh, Inc. After being disappointed for years by ordinary pet foods, pet owners want to take control of their dog’s or cat’s health. So I created a way, with a simple click of the mouse, for them to get the finest possible food delivered fresh to their doorstep. Jason says he believes so strongly in these new recipes, “we even back them with a 110% money-back guarantee.

The natural ingredients used in RedMoon products are the finest available – including regionally sourced antibiotic and hormone-free meats, whole raw fruits and vegetables, highly nutritious liver and low glycemic carbohydrate sources such as yellow peas, plus all-natural, chelated vitamins and minerals.

Each base kibble recipe is slow cooked in small batches to preserve essential nutrients pets need to thrive. Additionally, all RedMoon products are gluten, grain, soy, wheat, rice and corn-free. This is especially important for pet owners experiencing allergy problems with their pets.

RedMoon formulas have been developed and tested by a Natural Pet Nutritionist along with a team of PhDs in Animal Science. They not only pass the toughest nutritional criteria, but have been taste tested by a discerning panel of dogs and cats.

To uphold their commitment to using locally sourced ingredients, RedMoon operates from two processing facilities, one in Brainerd, Minnesota and the other in Crossfield, Alberta, Canada. So wherever you live in North America, you know your pet’s custom food will stay fresh all the way to your door.

RedMoon even lets you name the special pet food you’ve created after the name of your furry friend. Soon, pet owners will even be able to choose a photograph of their pet to print on each bag!

How it Works:
Your unique dog or cat food formula is designed by you online, and delivered to your doorstep.

All you need to do is:
Log onto
Use the pet food creator to select the base formula, energy level, kibble size and supplements ideal for your dog or cat.
Name your unique blend.
Order your custom pet food creation.
Have it delivered to your door.
Watch your pet enjoy and get the nutrition they need.

Developed by a Natural Pet Nutritionist, RedMoon’s supplements are all-natural blends of nutraceuticals, herbs, enzymes, vitamins, essential trace elements, fatty acids and oils. Supplement blends can be changed at any time. RedMoon base formulas have more than enough nutrients, so supplements may not be necessary for every dog or cat. RedMoon’s special customization process ensures that all supplements avoid exposure to excessive heat so the nutritional integrity of the supplements are maintained – unlike other pet food maanufacturing processes that add tiny amounts of supplements that are eroded in nutritional value from high cooking temperatures.

Sadie the Scottish Terrier Wins Westminster Kennel Clubs Best in Show

Westminster Triumph is Second Jewel of “Dogdom’s Triple Crown

The American Kennel Club®, a non-profit organization whose rules govern more than 20,000 canine competitions each year including the famed Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, is pleased to congratulate Ch. Roundtown Mercedes of Maryscot, a 4-year-old Scottish Terrier who goes by the name “Sadie.” Owned by Amelia Musser, handled by Gabriel Rangel and bred by Mary L. O’Neil and Anstamm Kennel, Sadie is one of only a handful of dogs that have won the two major American dog shows, the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship (2009) and Westminster Kennel Club (2010). Will a win at Crufts – the world’s largest dog show held in Birmingham, England – and completion of Dogdom’s Triple Crown be next?

The first and only dog to ever win Dogdom’s Triple Crown was Kerry Blue Terrier Ch. Torum’s Scarf Michael, better known as “Mick.” He won Best in Show at Crufts in 2000, captured the top spot at the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship in 2002 and beat out all competition at Westminster in 2003.

Last year, Sadie won Best of Breed and Reserve Best of Group in the Terrier Group at Crufts, falling just short of achieving the ultimate Best in Show title and earning a first jewel in “Dogdom’s Triple Crown.”

“We wish her the best of luck if she decides to follow in Mick’s footsteps and go for Dogdom’s Triple Crown at Crufts this year,” said AKC Chairman Ron Menaker. “Like the horse racing version of the Triple Crown, this is an extremely difficult feat that only the best dogs could ever hope to achieve.”

Crufts regularly welcomes more than 21,000 dogs into its rings each year. The AKC/Eukanuba National Championship serves as the only all breed qualifying show in America for entry into Crufts. The Kennel Club (England) has designated the winners of Best of Breed, Best of Opposite Sex or recipients of an Award of Merit at the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship as qualified to enter their show.

Please join us for a wonderful day in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California on October 2, 2010. Carmel-by-the-Sea is a dog-friendly tow. Dogs can run without leashes on the beach, and they are welcome at many local hotels and restaurants.

Who is invited? Any type of poodle, mixed poodle, Labradoodle or Goldendoodle is welcome – we love them all.

The event will consist of a Poodle Parade at the Crossroads in Carmel, CA , Poodle Play at the Carmel Beach, and Poodle Cocktail Parties at the Cypress Inn and Forge In The Forest in Carmel By-The-Sea, CA.

We have organized this event purely and simply for the love of poodles. We own two Standard Poodles, and have a Standard Poodle “grand dog”! The city of Carmel and allof its wonderful people have a special place in our hearts. We believe Carmel to be one of the world’s most beautiful places and would like to share its allure with other poodles and their owners. We are not affiliated with any of the business vendors listed in this web site.

Invited to participate, NorCal Poodle Rescue, founded 25 years ago, is a group of volunteers who rescue, rehabilitate and find new homes for more than 100 poodles and poodle mixes each year. They serve northern California and southern Oregon. They rescue and place standard, miniature and toy poodles, as well as poodle mixes, in loving homes. NorCal Poodle Rescue responds to county shelters, humane societies and individuals via their website and phone hotline. Each poodle is spayed or neutered, vaccinated and groomed before adoption. In addition, they provide extensive medical care, fostering, and training if needed before placement. There is a return policy in the event that a poodle placement doesn’t work out.
