Traveling with a Raw Fed Dog-No Cooler Required


Raw feeding is heavy.  Seriously.  Each of my dogs typically eat anywhere from 2-3 pounds of food. Per day. Each.  Let that sink in...

Some dogs eat more than that.  Smaller dogs eat less.

Many people travel with their dogs.  In fact, over 18 million Americans will travel with their pets this year.  Independence Day falls on a Saturday this year, and many folks will spend the holiday weekend camping with their dogs.

Traveling with a raw fed dog or raw feeding while camping typically involves lugging a heavy cooler full of meat, and trying to keep it sufficiently cold, or purchasing meat on the go at grocery stores. Neither is very convenient, both in terms of time and effort.  One doesn't want to lug large amounts of raw meat with them, or spend precious leisure time in the grocery store each day.

Bravo Homestyle Completes are balanced meals containing freeze-dried raw meat, vegetables and cranberries.  Once rehydrated with warm water, a 3 ounce bag makes 1 pound of food!

Waiting on dinner...
Warm tap water can be used, or water warmed over a camp fire.

After it's rehydrated, it smells like beef stew!  Made me hungry.  My dogs, even picky Neeko, love them.

Bravo Homestyle Complete Dinners are shelf stable, and easily portable.  They (along with raw fresh meat) ensure adequate hydration in a dog, due to the high moisture content.  Traveling can be stressful for a dog, and increase their metabolic rate.  So keeping them well-hydrated is important.


Bravo Homestyle Complete can be fed anywhere.  Inside, outside, in a tent, in a hotel, in a camper. Anywhere.

They are super convenient, easy to prepare, high quality raw meals.  What's not to like?  They can be used as a complete meal, a snack/treat, or as a kibble topper for those looking to add a bit of raw/less processed food to their dog's diet.

Ditch the dog food cooler and pick up some Bravo Homestyle Complete the next time you travel with your raw fed dog!

  5. I have to confess that when we go on the road, I just bring a super high quality kibble and organic canned food. My guys are thrilled at the change even if I feel like I am letting them eat junk food! LOL!

  6. thanks for the review, this product has been doing really well for us, more so than honest kitchen even (I like both), some dogs just prefer heartier texture. I like the fact that it's meat based unlike sojos which equals less pooping and it does not smell like dog food when you rehydrate it.

  10. Before applying for visa, you should ensure that all your travel documents are up-to-date. You should have a valid passport which should have enough validity period left. Your passport should hold good throughout the entire stay at Vietnam plus an other month after your return journey to home. https://www.greenvisa.io/
