Grain-free dog kibble

1000's of dogs have switched from store dog food to Scratch grain-free dog kibble for:


Grain-free goodness

No filla, all killa. No cheap grains and corns that make your dog declare it’s turned paleo. Just all the premium meat and vegetables they could ever need in the one box.

Dog Food Meat

Lean, mean protein.

100% locally and ethically sourced meat from Australia. No dodgy bits. Just a cool 30% of protein to keep your pup up and at it all day long, and your senior dog from putting on the pounds.


100% Transparent ingredients.

No sneaky names and hidden ingredients – just the real deal. When we say ‘turkey’ we mean ‘turkey’. That along with goodies like pumpkin, turmeric, and chickpeas, it sounds like your kind of shopping list.

Salmon Dog Food

Good oils.

Salmon, coconut, you name it. We mix through a stack of healthy oils high in DHA to give your puppy strong brain development & senior dog food for a shiny coat in those twilight years.


Extra vitamins.

A healthy dose of supplements to top off an already drool-worthy recipe.

Formulated with an animal nutritionist, Scratch is full of grain-free goodness for all life stages.


Only whole ingredients.

Not all avocado’s taste equal right? It’s the same with dog food. Kibble is usually just cheap powdered ingredients from China. We’ve sourced 97% Australian whole ingredients with minimal processing for this recipe.

Premium dog food at the right price!

Kosi our new puppy golden retriever is just 9 weeks old. He was eating Royal Canin at the breeders. When I came across Scratch on the web during my due diligence in choosing his food, I quickly realised that the quality of Scratch was superior to any other food on the market and yet the price was very comparable if not cheaper AND it was delivered right to my doorstep! It was a no brainer to switch to Scratch. And Kosi absolutely LOVES his Scratch whilst I have the peace of mind that my little guy is eating the best food in the market....hands down. And all from sustainable Australian ingredients. What not could a dog owner ask for!

Loving our Scratch

We were having trouble with Mika’s tummy & itching, she was 4 months old so we moved her onto Scratch & haven’t looked back. We have been on the Turkey, lamb & beef but are moving her to the kangaroo with our next order so really looking forward to that! Thank you for making our puppy so much happier 😊

The Food

One is not better than the other, they are just different. It all comes down to what your dog needs and prefers.

If your dog has any known allergies to common proteins, then Kangaroo is the right place to start.

If your pup is going to grow up to be larger than 32kg, then they should get the Turkey, Lamb & Beef recipe while they are growing.

For all other dogs, it really comes down to taste .

It costs $69 for a 7.5kg box. But you can also get $10 off when you order two boxes at the same time, just like with our roo recipe.

Yes, this recipe is suitable for every breed of puppy, including large breed puppies.

Yes, this recipe is suitable for every breed of senior dog. If your older dog has any specific health concerns, just jump on live chat to check if it’s suitable for their needs.

Absolutely. Any dog, regardless of age, breed, or activity level, can enjoy this recipe.

We source the turkey from Inghams, with the lamb and beef also being 100% Australian and free of added hormones.

We have also started work on sourcing free range and RSPCA approved turkey. As we grow, we’re working on bringing more ethical production to the pet food industry improving the supply chain for everyone

Both kibble recipes are approximately 14mm in diameter, so on the medium size.

Not right now sorry.

Variety is the spice of life. We worked with our nutritionist to make the best food for large breed puppies – and everyone else too. For dogs that aren’t super sensitive, having different sources of proteins makes sure there are a large range of nutrients and flavours to keep them healthy and interested.

This 3-meat recipe initially came about after a shortage of kangaroo. This shortage meant that to get good quality kangaroo meat was going to cost more, which would in turn cost more to our Scratch customers. For some people – especially those with large dogs – the increase would mean they’d have to look elsewhere. So we got our heads together and asked: if it’s not kangaroo, what could be another great recipe?

The result was Turkey, Lamb & Beef: three proteins that are great for large breed pups without hitting the purse strings too much. It’s also good for pooches who don’t have too many intolerances or aren’t sensitive to particular meats.

If your dog has a diagnosed allergy to chicken, then it is best to go with the kangaroo recipe instead. The turkey is processed on the same production line as chicken, so there is a small chance that some will make it into the finished product. Better be safe.

Both are actually very high compared to most food on the market, especially for ones that don’t add protein concentrate from peas. We consider that 28%-32% is a sweet spot that provides all the protein your dog needs to thrive, without putting too much pressure on their digestive system and organs.

Single protein food is the way to go if your dog has not been doing well on other foods out there. While it may have been the protein or a grain that your dog was allergic to, our Single Protein Kangaroo recipe is your best bet to quickly find a food that your dog will like. It’s also the right choice if they just love roo!

The best thing to do is to request a sample to try. The pieces in our Turkey, Lamb & Beef kibble are bigger in diameter, but are still quite thin. Bigger kibble can slow down fast eaters, as well as improving dental health. Best to check first before you dive into a box.

You will need to follow the new feeding instructions that we emailed to you or you will find on our account page. They have slightly different levels of energy density.

Kibble size can have an impact on dental health. Larger kibble makes dogs chew more, rather than just swallow, so it can help keep teeth cleaner. You probably also should give your dog natural dental treats or raw bones to chew on too.

Start with the Kangaroo Single Protein. If that doesn’t help, then it is probably time to do a formal allergy testing or follow a strict elimination diet to identify what’s causing the allergy

How it Works

Sure can – just ask us on live chat or by responding to any of our emails.

Most dogs will be fine switching between the two foods. But some will need to transition. If this is something you want to try, it’s best to test it out with your dog to see what works best for them

Find out for your dog. We’ll ask for each dogs weight, age and activity level and a few other little things.

That helps us estimate their calorie needs, how much Scratch to feed them and how long a box would last. If you have multiple dogs, you’ll get a feeding guide unique to each of them, but they can eat the same box of food.

We’ll base the frequency of a fresh box arriving based off that feeding plan, but you have full control to pause, cancel, speed up or slow down your subscription as needed.

Just like us hoomans, some dogs don’t like change.

It’s also important to remember that sometimes the old food that they may be used to may have had lots of salt or other additives that made it taste great, even if it was not healthy. Be persistent and try not to be trained by your fur baby, but sometimes they might just not be into it.

If you’ve transitioned to Scratch and you’re still unsure, we do offer a 100% money-back guarantee on your first order, no questions asked.

We’ve made it super simple to pause, slow down or speed up your subscription with a click of a button so you’re only getting food whenever you need it.

We also remind you 7 days ahead of sending more fresh food for your dogs.

Different ingredients produce different amounts of energy and some food is more dense than others, so one cup of two different dog foods can also have a big difference in energy availability.

Our feeding suggestions are usually pretty spot on based on whether your dog is in a healthy weight range, overweight, etc., but you can monitor your dogs weight and use common sense to feed more or less if your dogs weight changes unexpectedly.

We calculate how much Scratch each dog should be fed per day based on each individual breed, age, weight and activity level.

You can feed them these separate amounts out of the same box, or we can send two boxes at once.

Delivery & Payment

Sure will. We will let you know 7 days in advance of when your next fresh box is due to ship and when it will be charged.

Each email contains a quick link to choose a new order date that you’d prefer or a button for us to send it ASAP if you’re running low.

We currently use Australia Post, with no signature required. Your driver will leave the box in the safest place possible and leave a card if they think there’s nowhere out of site.

We don’t want you to have to try to get to your local post office during business hours, and then have to lug home a heavy box of food, so let us know if you’d prefer us to leave a note with orders if you have a preferred place for packages.

There is a resealable bag inside the box. This is important to keep the food fresh, and store all the great smells inside for feeding time!

We ship to most places in Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, Tasmania and South Australia.

Shipping is free for all Melbourne, Sydney & Brisbane customers and subsidized down to a small fee for everyone else. Head to checkout and enter your address to see exactly how much it is to get to your door.

One day (hopefully in 2019) we’ll offer free shipping Australia-wide, but shipping dog food is expensive, so we’ve subsidized the cost as best we can for now. Watch this space.

Everything Else

We’d love to avoid plastic all together, but if moisture was to get into the box it could create mould and be a horrible health risk for your dog. We’re looking at how we can invest in creating a non-plastic bag, but for now, all of our packaging is recyclable.

To get the best value out of recycling the bag, we suggest you put them in the redcycle.net.au bins available at most supermarkets and include instructions in every order email.

We have chosen not to sell in pet stores. We can get you a better food for the same price, speak to you about the needs of your dog and send fresher food based on your next order dates.

Sure do. Grab a sample here.

We are confident that your dog will love our kibble and that you’ll see the benefits over time. You can also cancel at any time without restriction, and we offer a money-back guarantee on your first box if you’re unsure after transitioning.

30 years ago, most dogs lived in the backyard rather than on the bed. We now fully accept them into our families as little fur babies.

While pet food has improved, we don’t think that regulation has kept up. In fact, it is still only a voluntary standard that exists, and that was written by the pet food industry itself.

While our manufacturing partners are PFIAA members and audited to the voluntary standard, we have currently chosen not to join. We especially believe that the standard does not demand the transparency that consumers expect and deserve. The flexibility that it allows marketers to deceive and promote is more appropriate for business generations ago, not now.
