The sign up process begins with a series of questions about everything from your dogs breed, if he has been spayed or neutered, his activity level, allergies and even the type of food he is currently eating.

Cost

Price depends on the size of your dog and meals selected. It is calculated by how much food he needs based on the exact number of calories he should consume daily, which dictates your subscription cost, but shipping is free.

Based on a fairly active and healthy 4 year old dog, your cost would be approximately:

  • 15 pounds – $28 – $32 weekly or $4 – $5 a day
  • 55 pounds – $59 – $66 weekly or $9 – $10 a day
  • 95 pounds – $96 – $106 weekly or $14 – $15 a day

Delivery Options

Ollie has only two main delivery plans. The “All Ollie” meal plan means you receive 14 trays delivered every two weeks and the second plan, “Mostly Ollie” is meant to supplement your dog’s meals with 28 smaller packs of food delivered every four weeks.

If at any time you need to pause, skip, or cancel your orders, you can log into your account and do so from there. You can also update your dog’s profile at any time in the event there is changes in weight, activity level or even to try different meal flavors.

Ollie pet food is shipped in a white cardboard box with plenty of recyclable padding and dry ice to keep the food very cold. Each package is vacuum sealed for freshness and frozen.

Ollie recipes come in plastic packets that are fairly easy to open by peeling back the top of the packet and dropping the food into your dogs dish.

The Bottom Line

After weighing the pros and cons of both dog food brands we made the difficult decision of picking just one. It was a really close call since both Nom Nom and Ollie are excellent dog food brands and my dog ate both foods in record time.

Our top pick for fresh dog service in this article, goes to Nom Nom based on several criteria. In the end, Nom Nom’s pricing is reasonable, delivery time is faster and they offer extra items like dog treats. They also offer more recipe varieties and allow you to mix them up which keeps my dog satisfied and interested.
