I used to buy it at Amazon.  Price was decent... free shipping.  :) 
I JUST signed up for auto delivery at www.TheHonestKitchen.com.  I can choose how often I want it shipped.  Orders over $49 ship free.  I get points with every purchase.  X amount of points equals free product.
As far as Chewy... PetsMart owns them now.  No thanks.   >:D

Base is in our ROTATION (I can't say that enough  ;D).  I PERSONALLY don't think Lacy dog needs fruits and veggies with every meal.   

I also feed meat, bone, and organ grinds from www.Hare-Today.com and add Alnutrin myself.  Other meat sources I purchase from: www.RawFeedingMiami.com and www.MyPetCarnivore.com   
When I feed meats from the grocery store (with no Base)... I either grind it myself or cut it into chunks.  I also add Alnturin for meats without bones AND liver. 

I buy both Alnutrin (for boneless meats and meat, bones, and organs) directly from the company.  http://www.knowwhatyoufeed.com/alnutrin_supplements.html

The more "work" you do yourself... the less expensive raw feeding is.  There are people that feed their dog/cat for less then a buck a meal... or day.  I can't remember which one.  :)

How many pugs do you have?

I do have a meat grinder so I'm sure that will help. Thank you so much for all the links. If you have a code or anything that you get something for referring me let me know so I can use it. I have four pugs. One will be 13 next month, one 13 in Feb, and two just turned 7 end of May.

I'm glad you bought the book that DeeDee recommended.  That will likely have a LOT more info to help you!

Those are the cutest things! I especially love the black one though. Everyone can tell you I'm black-dog obsessive.

Not yet... wanted to go through the book and make sure I started right and not just jump in and not work out or not have everything needed.

I haven't read the book that DeeDee recommended to you, so I have not clue where your head is at.  :)

If you tossed your dogs a piece of chicken... would they eat it?  That would be a place to start. 

When I transitioned our dogs, it was a piece of cake.  If something was put in their food bowls, it was meant to be eaten!  Maybe transitioning will go that easy for you too!   fingerscrossed

I finally found the FB group that goes with that book:

As a source of Honest Kitchen, I've got to show a little love to a regional pet food chain, Hollywood Feed.  I've never ordered from them, as we have a store here in town.  Definitely my favorite bricks and mortar place for pet needs, and I suspect customer service is just as good for online orders. 

Here's a link, and they have a coupon code right now, too.  Oddly, it is cheaper there than at the Honest Kitchen site itself, even without the coupon.  Same deal with shipping - free over $49, and there is an auto-ship discount.  I have no idea how this would compare, in the long run, with the points program, but Hollywood is a nice alternative for other things, as well, for people who don't want to deal with Chewy anymore.  Not as many different products, but they don't sell any grocery store type foods, either.
