suburban pup is genuinely supportive of all efforts to reduce processed, pet-grade food and/or increase fresh, human-grade food in a dog’s diet – and indeed in the dog food market.
And boy has it changed (for the better!) in the two years we’ve been operating.
Increased awareness about home prepared dog food is particularly encouraging across a range of feeding models and pup sizes, though sometimes we see bowls tending toward being primarily pretty, overly rich or a little bland – rather than being truly canine appropriate.
At the same time, fresh feeding clients are tending toward more discerning protein preferences, seeking raw or prepared meat options directly reflecting their very personal expectations about everything from traceable quality to price point when it comes to pup food.
So suburban pup has developed a new product offering to help complement all our dogs’ bowls. Our M.Y.O. (Make-Your-Own) Meal Mix offers a suitable variety of vegetables in digestible form, balanced with a gently nourishing range of natural supplements. All in a convenient format.
Leaving owners dedicated to their dogs’ wellness and longevity to make informed and flexible choices (with suggested guidelines from our canine nutritionist) about the type, source and proportions of the protein they serve alongside.
M.Y.O. Meal Mix launches 3 November, with a C.Y.O. (Choose-Your-Own!) protein workshop, presented by Ruth Hatten at The Pick Up Joint, with booking details here.
