Puppy Training Basics
October 6, 2020

The first thing I get asked once a doggo passed our evaluation is “What do I bring along when I drop him/her off” and the answer is usually pretty simple: enough food for the duration of the stay, maybe a t-shirt or small blanket that smells of you and that is about it.

So when it comes to food, we aren’t exactly picky about what form or packaging you bring it in, however, we are somewhat limited in space. And since we just recently had a few dogs that were dropped of with huge dog food containers and/or Costco sized dog food bags I thought I show you how and where I prepare the food and what kind of packaging and containers work well.

If you don’t want to watch a whole video for that here are a few quick bullet points:

  • enough food for the stay plus a day or two (in case of delays in your return)
  • 1 or 2 Gallon zip lock bags work well and you can even measure the amount of food into them
  • 16 to 21 Cup plastic containers work well too
  • not required but appreciated: label container or bag with your dogs name and amount of food to give
  • if refrigerated or frozen food, please bring multiple small containers (limited fridge space upstairs)
  • label all supplements or medication to be given with instructions
  • no food bowls needed (we have dishwasher safe bowls of all sizes, including slow feeder bowls)
  • include a labeled measuring scoop if you want to ensure your dogs portions are exact

Mahalo for your support 🙂
