    What's in the bag

    Our kibble is oven baked in small batches. Unlike other kibbles that are extruded (high pressure and extreme heat that cooks away the nutrients) our baking process ensures a less processed food.

    A complete protein & a superfood that contains Lauric Acid important for aging dogs. It’s also a hypoallergenic, sustainable & a humane protein source!


    Rich in vitamins and minerals. Soluble fiber that works to regulate cholesterol and all intestinal processes.

    Sweet Potato

    Great source of fiber, vitamin C, beta carotene and manganese. They are rich in antioxidants and aid in a balanced source of energy and blood sugar levels...

    Flax seed

    Contain high amounts of Omega 3 fatty acids. Also high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

    Why Grub?



    Great for food sensitivities

    Mental Acuity




    Grubs are an amazing and complete protein source with all of the essential amino acids that you find in other animal proteins. The protein itself (without additives) meets AAFCO canine standards for B-Vitamins, Choline (brain health) and fatty acids.


    Digestibility refers to the relative amount of nutrients within the diet that become available to the body after digestion and absorption. Both cricket and grubs score above 80 in digestibility studies with dogs – that qualifies these proteins as “high-quality protein” for the dogs.

    Great for food sensitivities

    Beef, chicken, lamb, soy and even fish are the most common ingredients that trigger dog allergies.  Insect protein is an alternative protein for the dogs and we haven’t seen dogs exhibiting allergies to this protein.  In fact, veterinarians are already using Jiminy’s in elimination diets (eliminating all known allergens to try to determine what the actual allergy is) because insect protein is not an allergen.

    Mental Acuity

    Excellent source of Lauric Acid (which is a medium-chain fatty acid or Medium Chain Triglyceride). Unlike long-chain fatty acids, these fatty acids do not increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. In fact, they have been proven to benefit overall health thanks to the way they are processed by the body. According to a study by the National Institutes of Health, aging dogs who had their diets supplemented with MCTs for over 8 months experienced “significantly improved” cognition.


    Grubs (aka Black soldier fly larvae - BSFL) have strong antioxidant and antimicrobial activities. Due to the ability of BSFL protein derivatives to donate hydrogen atoms and/or electrons to counterpoise unstable molecules, they could possibly help in the prevention of osteoarthritis. BSFL is not only useful in preventing the development of arthritis but could also help to mitigate symptoms due to the presence of glucosamine.


    Insect protein is truly a sustainable protein source. Better land use and feed conversion. In addition, less water and almost no greenhouse gases. If you take a dog who is eating a chicken-based diet and switch to an insect based diet, we save 480,000 gallons of water per year.

    "Our GI specialist suggested cricket protein for Loki. Before trying out Jiminys, Loki would never have solid poop."

    Worked for allergies

    We have been feeding our dog insect protein based dry feed for the last 3 1/2 years as he developed food allergies (itching, ear infections). The insect feed helped immensely in keeping his allergies under control with mild medication.
    Switched to Good grub upon moving to the US as good grub uses BSFL as the insect protein. It has proved to be as good as the previous feed (BSFL insects protein) in keeping the allergic reaction under control for over 4 months and we have managed to reduce the medication dosage. Fingers crossed the diet can be sustained without triggering any allergies.
    4 stars as the feed turns to powder inside the bag and makes it difficult for the dog to eat.

    No more constipation

    This dog food really helped my dog’s constipation. Poop is perfect trxture and consistency now. Both my dogs seem to prefer the good grub over the cricket dog food. But they are very picky and get bored easily. I got the alternate double pack with grub and cricket food so I can switch it up. I hope this food will improve my dog’s dry flaky coat. I like that the kibble is soft baked and not like your typical dry kibble. I also appreciate that it’s more sustainable over traditional dog food. I’ll update my review if my dogs continue eating this and if it helps their coat.

    All of my dogs LOVE this!!

    My big dogs, both past and present, really love this food & have done very well on it. They get very excited about mealtimes, finish every bit of food, and have had excellent vet checkups. I had one senior dog who started on Jiminy’s right before he was diagnosed with cancer who outlived his estimated time by over 18 months. (For him, I did also supplement Jiminy’s with organic produce recommended by his vet to support his immune system as well as other medications, of course.) He lived a quality lifestyle right up until the end, playing and eating well. YMMV. Having a food that isn’t processed at high temperatures, without destroying nutrients & creating toxins, makes a difference in your dog’s health. My 10.5 year old acts like a puppy and has literally never been ill. She’s eaten Jiminy’s for half her life. I’ve fed this to four of my personal dogs with great results. I very highly recommend it.

    Life saver!

    When my sweet 14-year-old Havanese, Teddy, was diagnosed with Cushings disease, I struggled to find the right food for him. He and his brother, Geordie, had been raised on a famous brand (found only in select dog food outlets), which now caused upset tummies and diarrhea. After a long, unsuccessful search, I read an article in the Washington Post about Jiminy's food and decided to give it a try. I am SO GLAD I did! Jiminy's Good Grub Dog Food, original cookies and training treats have become a staple in our home. Teddy's weight has stabilized, his appetite is healthy, and his energy levels are normal for a senior dog. He no longer is voraciously thirsty nor is he constantly panting. Jiminy's foods, along with a moderate dose of his Cushings meds and a low dose of melatonin at night have given him a new lease on life. Jiminy's has given me back my sweet boy!

    Thank you so much!!!

    My dogs go NUTS for this food. I have to do all sorts of magic to their regular food to make it appetizing. But their eyes light up for both the Jiminys food and the treats! I have been wishing for a guilt-free, sustainable dog food forever! Buy it now!
