Dog food can be expensive. Dog food can be really expensive when you feed your dog healthy and nutritious food.
Luckily, you’re going to play the Dog Food Game.
Want to play? Join me:
First things first-- figure out what you’re willing to spend. It’s unrealistic for someone to spend $50 on one bag of dog food when they are fostering 8 Greyhounds! They won’t be able to feed their children. So let’s be realistic, but not too cheap-- You would much rather spend a little money now on food, then a lot down the road if something happens to Fido. I highly recommend an all Organic diet. To read more on why organic is healthier, read Carrie’s post “Your Dog’s Food: Why is Organic Healthier?”.
Now that you have what you’re willing to spend, head out to the store. Personally, I suggest PetsMart or PetCo. They carry a large variety of healthy, nutritious, and organic dog food. Another great store is Pet Supermarket. Where you decide to shop is up to you and your pup.
PetsMart is one of my favorites because they have great customer service. They are very helpful and always willing to answer questions you may have. PetsMart accepts manufacturer coupons, so research online to see if your dog food company gives out coupons.

are Available from Some Pet Food Makers
PetCo has some great rewards! PetCo uses the Pals Program and you can sign up for that here. For every 10 bags of dog food you purchase, you get one bag free! PetCo accepts manufacturer coupons and they have their own coupons that you can print from their website. When you’re part of the Pals Program, you will also get monthly emails containing coupons! Because they have store coupons and manufacturer coupons, PetCo allows stacking. Stacking is when you use both a manufacturer and store coupon for one item. For a PetCo near you, click here and enter your zip code.
Pet Supermarket is also a favorite because they do something none of the other stores do-- price match! Of course, you’ll want to confirm this with your local Pet Supermarket, but most stores do. Pet Supermarket also accepts competitor coupons (from PetsMart and PetCo) and manufacturers coupons. Price matching is very easy at Pet Supermarket-- just bring in another store’s ad with your item on sale for a specific price, and they will honor the price. Pet Supermarket also has a discount card; the VIP card. To obtain a VIP card, visit your local Pet Supermarket.
