Searching for dog food, using packaging as a filtering aid, may be another useful way to help when choosing which food to buy, and with this in mind, it will be enormously helpful to know of the various ways your dogs foods are packaged.
Enabling filtering by "package type" as an option could be helpful for those who have a preference; perhaps due to available storage space or perhaps as a result of finding it 'difficult' to 'get to' the food, (for example opening cans may be difficult as may also tearing open a pouch or tray ) .
Whilst researching the various types of packaging it was apparent that dog food is packaged in a variety of ways, namely, in Bags, Blocks, Boxes, Cans, Cartons, Chubs, Packs, Pouches, Trays, Tubs and Tubes.
What was really surprising was the enormous variety in amounts of food within the same packaging. Data from the allaboutdogfood dog food directory shows that currently dog foods packaged in Bags have the following varying amounts: 57g, 75g, 100g, 142g, 350g, 450g, 454g, 900g, 1kg, 1.25kg, 1.5kg, 2kg, 2.3kg, 2.5kg, 3kg, 4kg, 4.5kg, 2kg, 5kg, 6kg, 7kg, 7.5kg, 8kg, 8.5kg, 10kg, 10.8kg, 11.4kg, 12kg, 12.5kg, 13kg, 13.5kg, 13.6kg, 14kg, 14.5kg, 15kg, 18.4kg, 20kg, 30kg. Packaged In Blocks: 300g, 400g. In Boxes: 700g, 1kg, 6kg, 9.5kg. Cans: 170g, 200g, 363g, 370g, 374g, 385g, 395g, 400g, 412g, 600g, 635g, 800g, 820g. Cartons: 85g, 375g, 480g.
