Just as with people food, when dog food is exposed to open air and other elements it tends to dry out and become stale. Keep your dog’s food fresher longer with these innovative storage options, designed to make dog food last. The moment you open your pup’s bag of food, the clock starts ticking. Exposure to air, light, heat and humidity leads to the degradation of dog kibble, with more air and light, and higher heat and humidity levels, speeding up the process. As food degrades, it hardens and loses flavor, making your pet’s mealtime less enjoyable. Yuck! And the kibble also loses nutritional value, so your dog will be getting fewer nutrients he needs to thrive. But there’s a solution, and a simple one at that—dog food storage containers.
Dog food storage containers will keep your dog’s food fresher, longer. They feature airtight seals that minimize the amount of air that comes in contact with the food. Many options feature a non-transparent or minimally transparent plastic that minimizes the amount of light that the food is exposed to. And some have wheels on the bottom that make it easy to wheel your container into less-lit areas while not in use. They also come in a variety of colors such as a black dog food storage container, blue dog food storage container, white dog food storage container, green dog food storage container, and many other colors. If you have multiple pets, there’s a solution just for you. IRIS Airtight Storage Container & Scoop Combo comes with two stackable containers, great for separating foods.
