Discover: A Fine Dining Restaurant for Dogs!

The word 'culinary' doesn’t really come to mind when you think of dog food, yet that’s exactly what San Francisco-based company Dogue specializes in!

With an aesthetic reminiscent of fine dining, you could easily mistake Dogue's culinary creations for human food - I swear it looks like they belong on a Michelin - starred menu!

Having owned my share of dogs over the years, I've seen how food can affect their health, behavior, and overall wellbeing. Imagine how boring it must be to eat basically the same meal everyday - It's no surprise pups will sit patiently waiting beside the dinner table in hopes of tasting a morsel of fallen food! Dogs must truly envy the variety of foods we humans have at our disposal.

That's why I got so excited when I discovered Dogue because they truly understand the love humans have for our furry friends. Professional chef Rahmi Massarweh is the dog food mastermind. Having previously studied classical French cuisine for nearly two decades, Massarweh was inspired to give his puppy Grizzly, who wasn't a fan of his food at the time, a more wholesome diet. From there, he began using his culinary experience to explore ways to make seasonal, fresh, whole foods for his beloved pup!

Massarweh settled on a simple philosophy: feed fresh, whole foods that are in season and as close to its natural source as possible. In other words, serve foods that dogs are biologically wired to consume. Dogue began through learning how to handcraft nutritious foods like pasture-raised, grass-fed meat, along with seasonal and organic vegetables.

Dogue also works with clients to develop meal plans to help transition your pet to a fresh food diet.

From wild shrimp presented alongside red and gold dumplings to an antelope heart that resembles a red rose, the plating techniques are colorful and exciting. If they look this appealing to humans, they must drive dogs crazy!
