    I think we've participated in at least half of those trends!

  2. I like the bit about the businesses being a bit more socially conscious - think y,ou need to be if you're selling to people who love animals

  3. There had definitely been a change in the way people think about dog food. And many dog food companies are adding new products with "healthier" recipes.

    That said, there is a lot of work to be done and consumers need to use their wallets to show Brands that they won't accept low quality, filler and artificial ingredient laden foods for their dogs.

  4. We think there are way to many choices.

  5. People are getting more health and diet conscious and it only makes sense that the awareness is spreading to our pets

    It is great to see these trends in dog foods....they are headed in the right direction. I'm sure the cheap, unhealthy ones will always be out there but hopefully people will learn too.

  7. I like these new trends
