Here are some quotes from reviews.
Honestly, there are so many positive things to say about not only the quality of the product but also the company. After conducting a great amount of research, I chose Petaluma for a multitude of reasons, some being:
2. Company values and commitment to sustainability to not only the product itself, but the entire manufacturing process;
3. Quality of product and transparency;
4. Willingness of company/staff to receive and consider feedback for suggestions and improvement.
I found Petaluma and after talking with their amazing customer service about their soft baked kibble I knew Delta had to try it. As soon as it arrived I gave him a piece to try and he happily chomped away. He loved it and I could see how much easier he was eating!
My little fussy pants Pepper seems to enjoy Petaluma more than the previous vegan food we tried (rhymes with mild birth), but she just isn’t as excited about it as I am.

What are the factors that make Petaluma Baked Dog Food more expensive than other vegan dog foods?
We wrote to Petaluma about the price and this is what they told us.
Relative to other vegan brands, there are three main drivers of price on our side:
1) Organic: We believe in organic for its numerous environmental and farmworker benefits. Organic ingredients in dog food are more expensive than folks would expect who are accustomed to buying organic produce at the grocery store. Baked products lose over 70% of the water weight of the original ingredient (for example, it takes 8 lbs carrots = 1 lb dehydrated carrots).
2) Baked / small batch: Petaluma is baked in an oven in small batches, whereas kibble is produced via extrusion with high pressure. Baking food is still fairly novel and is currently more expensive to produce. Manufacturing baked food takes more time and is less scalable than extruded kibble. We believe the more natural flavor and additional nutritional value (such as lower glycemic index and less fat oxidation) make it worthwhile.
3) Calorie content: Our food has around ~10% more calories per serving than most other plant-based dog foods so you end up serving a smaller portion.
As our business grows, we hope to lower costs and pass on that savings to our customers, particularly as baked and dehydrated foods grow in popularity (and of course as demand for sustainable and compassionate ingredients increases as well).
