You know from past posts that Chloe is a picky eater, but she’s mildly fond of frozen raw dog food (which is a challenge to travel with) and of ZiwiPeak’s air-dried raw food (which travels well). She toyed briefly with Stella & Chewy’s freeze-dried raw food, but completely rejected Honest Kitchen’s entire line of dehydrated raw food.
Here’s another product you should consider: Addiction, based in New Zealand, offers a range of dog food products, but the ones I’ve tried on Chloe are from its line of dehydrated raw food. She likes both “Fig’licious Venison Feast” and “Perfect Summer Brushtail,” and if Chloe likes them, your dog may well adore them. They both rehydrate rapidly and smell appealing. Portion sizes are small (about 1/2 c. per day for a dog Chloe’s size), so dog food won’t take up much of your packing space. Addiction’s only drawback is that it’s pricey (by this point, however, I’d pay for larks’ tongues, if Chloe would eat them reliably).
I was interested, by the way, to learn that the Australian Brushtail Possum is the kudzu of New Zealand — the critters were introduced to the country for the fur trade, and have become a serious pest. What a clever idea to address the problem by making them a key dog food ingredient!
