Are you a butternutter yet? Our dogs certainly are. They absolutely love their Butternut dog food. So much so, we thought we’d better spread the word to other hoomans. Read on to find out why we highly recommend the Butternut Box Scheme. Also, we’re happy to share our discount code so that you can claim 50% off your 1st & 2nd box deliveries for your dog to try it too. Pawsome right!
Are you confused about dog food?
We certainly were when we first decided to get a puppy. When Poppy arrived, for the first few weeks we continued to use the dry kibble puppy food, kindly provided by the breeder. Although the puppy food was a branded, well recognised product, we soon realised it was causing Poppy to have an upset stomach, gas (puppy farts are not great right?) and stinky poos. We decided it was time to upgrade to something more ‘odour reducing’.
We looked into other traditional, branded dog food options on the market, which were either:
RAW DRY or WET
Then we discovered Butternut. Theses guys have created a new FRESH dog food that just made sense to us.
We met the Butternut team at the NEC Motorhome Show. We loved their story, the company founders are best friends, whose dogs were ‘stinky’ like ours. We ordered our first box of Butternut at the NEC show and it was a game changer. Poppy is no longer the stinky dog she used to be (well, unless she gets to roll in her favourite eau de Fox perfume!). Coco our spaniel puppy is also now enjoying her share of Butternut too.
Why feed Butternut?
- Freshly prepared human grade meat (60%) veg and lentils (40%)
- No nasty ingredients added and grain-free (hence no stinky dog)
- Gently cooked then frozen ready for delivery
- Individual portions carefully prepared to your dogs needs (age, size, activity etc.)
- Created with vets and nutritionists to ensure all the right nutrients are included
What dogs benefit from Butternut?
There are delicious vet approved recipes available for; puppies, adult dogs and golden oldies. Active dogs, lazy dogs and everything in between. Also, dogs with weight issues, fussy eaters, dogs with allergies and more. The guys at Butternut have got them all covered. Just update your dog’s profile online and they’ll do the rest.

How does it work?
- Sign up using our discount link for 50% off your 1st & 2nd box deliveries .
- Complete your dog’s profile by answering a few simple questions to help the Butternut team create an individual meal plan.
- Sit back and wait for your first delivery.
- On delivery day simply unpack and pop the individual portions into your freezer until needed. We use the bottom draw of our freezer to store ours and take out 2-3 pouches at a time to defrost in the fridge.
5. Feed to your pooch, step back and watch how quickly it disappears and they look at you for more.
Happy Dance Guaranteed
TIP: The pouches will keep unopened for up to 7 days in your fridge once defrosted. Once opened use within a couple of days.
Your online account is so easy to use and update should you want to change your dogs profile, bring forward or move back your next delivery date or even pause deliveries when going on holiday etc.
TIP: If you’re a touring van owner like us then we think you’ll love the convenience of being able to pop Butternut into your van freezer.
Environmental and Sustainable
With delivery boxes provided every few weeks, the team are able to reduce the amount of journeys they make. All deliveries are completely carbon neutral.
We love the fact that the delivery boxes and ice packs can be recycled. They also use a great product called Woolcool, which is wrapped around the pouches with the ice packs to keep everything nice a cold whilst being transported to your doorstep.
The Woolcool wrapping can either be returned, composted, recycled or reused around your home. They’re great for protecting your garden pots and plants so we’re going to try this with our next delivery. Here’s more ideas for using the Woolcool in your home:
Supporting less fortunate
The lovely guys at Butternut also give back to those doggies not as lucky as ours with forever homes. For every new furry customer that signs up they donate a much-needed meal to a homeless dog or in a shelter waiting for a new forever home. We love this idea and also donate a percentage from our Touring Tails affiliate funds as it all helps.
We’d love you to help us with this great scheme, so sign up now using our 50% discount offer for your 1st & 2nd box.
