Just as you want a bread bin to keep your loaves fresh and the crumbs off the sideboard, so too you’ll look out for dog food containers for your pooch’s meals. What you choose will depend on whether you feed your dog wet food or dry kibble. Wet canned food will need silicone covers, while dry food keeps well either in a specially-designed storage bin or stylish tin – which also work well for treats. These solutions mean your dog’s food not only stays fresh for longer, but it keeps your storage areas tidy, hygienic, and free from dog-food “aromas”.
And as well as keeping smells in and the food fresh, dog food containers should keep not only pests out but ensure any peckish pets don’t come scavenging.
