Feeding Options

You are welcome to bring your pet’s regular food to avoid changing diets. We prefer the food is pre-portioned (one portion per meal) and we always recommend bringing a little extra in case of unforeseen delays in picking up your pet.

Should you prefer to use our House Food, we offer the choice of two foods Fromm Gold Adult, or Fromm Gold Puppy. This quality dry food contains duck, chicken, lamb, oatmeal, pearled barley & brown rice, and is also available in our THR!VE market. For further information on these foods see: https://frommfamily.com/products/gold/dog/dry/#adult-gold and https://frommfamily.com/products/gold/dog/dry/#puppy-gold 

If you are aware of the ongoing, incomplete study the FDA is conducting into a possible scientific link between grain-free dog foods containing certain carbs and the rare but serious heart condition, DCM, you may also know that one of the manufacturers named in their June 2019 interim notice is Fromm. As with other named companies, the notice did not specify a particular food, and it should be noted that Fromm produces foods with grain as well as foods without grain. Fromm Gold, our House Food, is NOT grain-free, nonetheless, while we await the FDA’s conclusions, we urge any client with concerns to do their research and to bring their own dog food from home. For more information on this issue please see our Notice on DCM.

Feeding Arrangements

Breakfast is served around 7 a.m. and Dinner is served at 5 p.m. Lunch, should it be required, is served at noon. Arrangements can be made if your pet is on a specific feeding schedule or has special requirements.

We like to know how well our guests are eating while they are at The Farm, so in the case of dogs who are sharing a suite, a staff member will sit in with them at meal times. This ensures that each dog eats what he/she is supposed to eat, and prevents any disagreements during feeding time. We do not leave food down (free feed) families of dogs boarding in the same suite, but we can sit with them for meals up to three times a day.
