Meals

 
 

Preferred Method(s): 

 

  • Dry food -  Pre-measure meals in individual baggies and bring ready to serve. 
  • Wet food (cans or plastic containers) - Bring in original containers. 
  • Home prepared food - Pre-measure meals in individual baggies or plastic containers and bring ready to serve. If only a small amount is being added to each meal, home prepared items may be brought in one small plastic container. 
  • Raw - MUST be brought in pre-measured individual baggies ready to serve. 
  • Treats - Place enough treats for your dog’s stay in a baggy. We are happy to serve! 

*Please bring 1-2 extra meals in case of an unexpected change in check out date. 

**All treats served must be able to be chewed and eaten safely by your pup immediately upon serving. No rawhides or similar type treats or chews are allowed at DDO due to choking hazards. Save those treats for your pet to enjoy at home with your supervision. 

 

Other acceptable methods: 

  • If all food to be served during your dog’s reservation (wet or dry), will fit into a plastic container no larger than 18Lx15Wx10H inches (the size of our storage totes), you may bring one container of this size. Please let us know what amount we will be serving (in cups). We will provide the scoop. 
  • You may bring one bag of dry food with your pet(s) if it is 10 pounds (or less) in size. Be sure this bag will be enough food for your pet’s entire reservation. Please let us know what amount we will be serving (in cups). We will provide the scoop.
