At Bold Canine, we believe that a raw diet is better for the health of your cat or dog. Our signature, tripe-based blend of raw food was developed through research and professional consultations with veterinarians and is backed by 15 years of experience in the pet industry.
The original Bold Raw blend was created for our own Shiloh Shepherds. Over the years, we’ve refined it to become the leading brand of raw pet food in Canada.
Bold Raw and Mega Dog are made in our 10,000 square foot production facility in Erin, Ontario and shipped in refrigerated transport across Canada. Today, Bold Raw and Mega Dog the only brand of raw pet food available coast-to-coast. You can find us in over 650 stores across the country — from Victoria, B.C. to Halifax, Nova Scotia.

How We Got Started
Meet Caroline and Dave — former breeders, animal lovers, and founders of Bold Raw and Mega Dog Raw. Aside from being advocates of a raw food diet, Caroline and Dave are also guardians and pet parents to a pack of Shiloh Shepherds (Sierra, Marty, and Penelope). And that’s where the Bold Raw story begins.
Back in 2007, one of Caroline and Dave’s older female Shepherds, Lola, was diagnosed with EPI, a serious pancreatic condition. Other members of the pack were suffering from dry, itchy skin and inconsistent poops. The couple knew that they needed to find a better way to feed them — kibble wasn’t working.
After lengthy research and consultations with professional veterinarians, Caroline and Dave created their original Bold Raw blend. Made from ground, meaty bones with beef tripe, organ, and kelp, this blend showed immediate results for their dogs’ health — from the youngest pups to the senior pack members.
The Mega Dog Raw line was added in 2014 to provide an affordable raw food option for guardians of bigger dogs or a large doggy family. It stays true to the dietary philosophy of Bold Raw, replacing tripe with nutritious vegetables to meet the portion needs of a dog over 60 lbs at a more economical price point.

The Bold Raw Blend
The signature ingredient in Bold Raw is natural ‘green’ tripe, sourced from Canadian, pasture-raised cows. The blend also contains triple-ground meaty bones and organ meats — which are antibiotic and hormone free — and kelp from Atlantic Canada.
The idea behind Bold Raw was to model the natural prey diet of a cat or dog while using tripe to add omega oils, probiotics, and digestive enzymes to encourage a healthy stomach.
Our Bold Raw blend was also designed to provide a low glycemic option for pets. The blends contain no fruits or veggies, which is great for animals with diabetes, yeast issues, or weight problems. You can think of it as the gluten-free equivalent for your pet.
The Mega Dog Raw Blend
Mega Dog Raw provides an affordable raw food option for families with bigger dogs, or multiple dog households. It is made from triple-ground meaty bones, organ meat, kelp, and a veggie mix of carrots, broccoli, zucchini, and collard greens. All the meats are antibiotic and hormone free.
In the Mega Dog Raw blend, nutritious vegetables have replaced the tripe used in Bold Raw to meet the portion needs of a bigger dog at an economical price point. The blend still contains a low vegetable content compared to similarly-priced options, staying true to our low glycemic philosophy.
Mega Dog Raw comes in a convenient tub format, making it easy to scoop-and-serve at meals and resealable to prevent leaks in the fridge. The nutritious veggies in the blend encourage better pet health — and big dogs love it, thanks to the high meat content!
