Food Preparation

We insist that owners supply their own dog food because changing your dog’s food can be very stressful, especially when he’s staying at a kennel. Having their own food makes your dog feel more at home. We accommodate all meal plans; raw, dehydrated, kibble, canned etc. We have a fridge/freezer to ensure the food remains fresh.

Do not pack each meal in individual bags (unless on raw). Extra food will be not be returned, so please measure accordingly, however we recommend sending an extra couple days’ worth of food in case of delays.

Dry Kibble Preparation:

  • With a measuring cup, measure exactly how much food your dog eats per day.
    • Times your dog’s stay by the cups of food they eat, then add a day or two more in case of a delay.
    • Eg: (10 days X 2 cups = 20 cups + 2 days (4 cups) = 24 cups.
    • Place all food in 1 or 2 large disposable bags (shopping bags work perfect) with feeding instructions put directly on the bag with your dog’s name!
    • Have it ready for your driver when we collect your dog to make pickup smooth and quick (we do not want dogs in the taxi waiting)

Raw/Homemade Food Preparation:

  • Figure out how many patties/meals your dog eats per day.
    • Times your dog’s stay by the food they eat, then add a day or two more in case of a delay.
    • Eg: (10 days X 1 patty = 10 patties + 2 days (2 patties) = 12 patties
    • Place each meal in an individual bag then place meals in a larger bag with instructions put directly on the bag with your dog’s name!
    Have it ready for your driver when we collect your dog to make pickup smooth and quick (we do not want the pups already collected to be waiting)

 Canned Food Preparation:

  • Count exactly how many cans your dog eats per day.
    • Times your dog’s stay by the food they eat, then add a day or two more in case of a delay.
    • Eg: (10 days X 1/2 can  = 5 cans + 2 days (2 cans) = 7 cans
    • Place cans in a sturdy plastic bag with instructions put directly on the bag with your dog’s name!
    Have it ready for your driver when we collect your dog to make pickup smooth and quick (we do not want the pups already collected to be waiting)
