There are dry/dehydrated products like Ziwipeak (kinda expensive IMO), and The Honest Kitchen, or there are fresher/frozen options available at some premium pet boutiques such as Nature's Variety or Stella & Chewy's. We love Stella & Chewy's here, they are a favorite!
I was afraid to be tied down by online ordering as well, however i'm unable to find The Honest Kitchen locally and i'm forced to order and I can attest that ordering from naturalk9supplies.com only takes 2 ish, 3 days max to receive so I can procrastinate almost to the last day and still get standard shipping.I was thinking about going to Ziwipeak or blue wilderness, but am having a hard time finding some of the better foods in retail stores, and hate to *wait* to buy online.
The dogs love Royal Canin, and with me being a part of their crown partners, I'm kinda spoiled with them. LOL. Hate to say goodbye, but I think it's time for a change.
