Would you buy dog food from this person?

Help me name my new business: Home-made dog food.

I currently make homemade food for our elderly, allergy-sensitive dog. Ginger suffered from skin allergies due to food, and she's made a remarkable recovery after we switched from commercial to homemade about two years ago. I am planning to sell my concoction at farmers markets this spring/summer, and I'm looking for a short, easy-to-remember name that encompasses the following keywords:

All natural - Healthy - Human-grade ingredients - chemical-free - no preservatives - Freshly made in my kitchen

Incorporating our dog's name would be good, but not necessary. You guys are GREAT at this. Thanks!

Your product has a great backstory- use it. Call it Ginger's. People will ask why, and you'll have a story to tell.

I was just thinking something like "Ginger's Home Kitchen" would really convey all of those ideas quite well. Just be prepared to be called "Ginger" a few times.

I love the idea of calling it Ginger's or Ginger's Kitchen. I'm seeing an adorable logo with a cartoon image of Ginger and some words underneath it like "Fresh, Healthy, Natural"

My dog's name is Ginger, so prepare for a protracted legal battle to rename your dog. (just kidding.)

I like the "Ginger's" suggestion because it's not only the dog's name, but also a reference to its main selling point - being easy on the constitution.

Ginger's Dog Food (contains less than 1% Dog) made me laugh.
Though I like Ginger's Canine Kitchen.

Tagline should be....

Yummy enough for a Human, but pH balanced for a dog.

Ginger blah blah blah blah Ginger is what comes to mind for me when I see "Ginger" in a dog situation -- and that's a good thing.

Is it a kibble-like product? Ginger's Granola.
Otherwise... Ginger's Good Dog Food.

I would just call it Home-Made Dog Food. Plain brown can. Black stencil letters. Maybe a stencil-looking bone logo.

That's it.

Good on you for doing this; there's a ton of information (and quite a few conflicting sources too) that needs to be filtered in order to get anything that's a) beneficial, b) economical and c) palatable. It must have been a long process.

I've settled on Ginger's Fresh Mix, mainly because the domain name was available. Thanks so much for all your help.
