It got my mind ticking over, after one of those particularly tiring days....
........that is, the 'lugging around' of multiple bags, packages and cans of various sizes of dog food; and this following on with locating suitable storage areas of the said aforementioned... Phew!
Yes, there is no doubt that part of this fairly frequent (and at times fatiguing) scenario may surely be eased, simply by ordering directly from the manufacturers and waiting until the food is delivered. And yet too at the same time I'm happy to support our local pet stores.
Aside from storing dog food correctly, It simply seems at times that it's the actual weight
of the food that is the annoyance, the bugbear if you like. As expected though food in smaller volumes equates to an accepted greater wasting of packaging; obversely, it's fairly commonplace that greater volume often equates to financial savings in the long run.
That said, however, buying a greater
volume may not prove to be cost effective if the result is leftover unused food. Some examples include feeding a dog who begins to dislike the food, or feeding a food that begins to disagree with a dog! Though this same train of thought may be attributed to any food regardless of volume, one might expect the loss of revenue to be greater as the degree of volume increases....
There are different reasons for sure as to why we buy the volume/sizes of dog food that we do. One such reason to consider may be the storage space available. And of consideration too is the type of storage available. Further considerations to ask are whether a larger amount of food keeps as fresh as one might hope?
Optimistically, there's an opportunity to voice our wishes, a possibility to further influence manufacturers to offer healthy dog foods at a cost effective price whilst taking into account valid views of consumers on the forum!
So to all - and of course those who may prefer a particular size/weight/volume of dog food to feed their dogs - here's the opening post asking what 'size' of dog food do you want to feed??
