Terrierman calls beaver dog food a gimmick

No one does doggy-themed rants better than the Terrierman and today he’s taking on boutique dog food. Here’s his recap of a much longer post:

1. Most of the boutique dog food companies are not making their own food;

2. Many have no idea what is actually in their food or where the ingredients come from;

3. Exotic ingredients are not necessarily better than non-exotic ingredients and may, in fact, be worse;

4. Boutique dog food companies almost never do actual feed trials on their dogs, and only know about manufacturing problems after a sizable number of dogs and cats turn up sick or dead;

5. Boutique dog food companies generally do not have trade names to protect, and so when problems do show up, they are less likely to be responsive. If a company like Canine Caviar (which makes the beaver food) goes out of business, no one would even notice. In fact, this company cannot even put up a fully working web site
