About Dog Food Reviews

Hey Dog and Animal Lovers


I have been fortunate to have had many pets thoughout my childhood and into adulthood. My very first pet was 2 dogs, Jock who was a bull terrier and Muffin, a very rare black maltese poodle. As a toddler, Jockwas the best dog I could have had. As with most toddlers, I was unaware how exactly to treat a dog. I would pull his ears, stand on him so I could see over the back of the couch. And best of all, he loved this rough attention.

I was also lucky to have had snakes, mice & rats, numerours types of birds and hamsters. I did not have all these pets at the same time, rather they were spread through my child hood and teen years.

I was lucky enough to own a dog through all of the other pets. There is nothing better than coming home to my wife and dog each day(and now baby as well!)

I was lucky enough to never have owned a cat (yes, I am not a cat person), but if you are a cat lover you are more than welcome at DFR!


It can be overwhelming deciding what brand to feed your dog. There are so many options and variations to chose from as well many different factors to consider. Price is also a massive factor. What makes a certain brand of dog food double, triple the price of other brands? Is it the better quality ingredients that you pay for…better branding?


My aim is to review and give a breakdown of all major dog food brands in South Africa so that you can make the best decision for your dog/s on your available budget.

If you have testimonial or feedback on a specific brand, please let me know. I would love to publish it on DRF.

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best,
