We just talked about dog sprays in the previous article, let’s a glance at dog’s food containers in this article. A majority of dog owners add some form of kibble in their dog’s diet. To save time and benefit from quantity discounts associated with buying this dog food, we prefer to acquire the kibble in large quantities.
Though it is scheduled to serve for some longer period of time, the package it comes in does not well suit that purpose. Some can be resealed, well, but the seal still remains too loose hence cannot serve for a long period of time.
Remember that this food needs to be kept away from ants among other pests. It also needs proper storage to prevent it from getting stale. Some dogs tend to be very sensitive and therefore can’t take stale food. This translates to much loss; remember that the dog has to eat, so you have to get him/her fresh food from the market.
However, there is a solution that will help you save your money and ensure that the dog food still retains its freshness. Using a dog food container is the perfect way to keep the dog food safe. These containers come in different forms.
It’s upon you to choose the food container that will serve to fulfil your needs to maximum satisfaction. But before making the purchase, make sure that you are purchasing the best product. So according to our review, here are the best that are currently available in the market.

Factors to be considered before buying.
The size of the container is determined by the quantity you intend it to hold. If you buy the dog food in large quantities, then definitely you have to go for the larger container with enough capacity to hold the food.
This is very obvious; take an example of what you consider when building a granary or a store to keep your harvest. The first thing to look at is the size; you decide the size by checking how much you usually harvest. It’s not different in the dog’s case.
The varieties of feeds
Consider a cupboard. It’s divided into different sections. We use single section for storing cups, another for plates and so on. We do that because we don’t want to store cups and plates in the same place maybe because of uniformity or accessibility.
Same happens in the case of a dog container. If we acquire many varieties of food then we have to go for food containers that are divided into sections.
In anything we acquire, durability is always one of the things to flash into our minds. Durability may be decided by how safe we handle the container. However, this is not the only secret; the material used to make the food container is another determinant of how long the container can serve.
The materials are different; some are made of metal while others plastic. As we all know that we have different types of metals and plastics, whether the container is metallic or plastic in nature, the specific type will always be a great determinant.
This is another factor that will always come into our mind regardless of what we are buying. Cost decision depends on the size of your pocket. A vast majority always want to acquire the best item using the minimum cost; that is good considering that money is a scarce resource.
Having other factors held constant, you have to buy what you can freely afford. However sometimes it depends with whatever we prioritise. If we prioritise cost factor, well other factors have to come after that.
This is another important factor that we should into consideration. Accessibility is about how long it takes to have an access to the stored food. Here, you consider how long it takes to open the container.
Some take much time and effort to open which may become annoying especially if you have other activities to attend to. Purchase a container that you can easily open using the minimum time- you don’t have to sweat to open your container.
Having considered the five major factors, we also have minor factors. Consider the colour- is it your favourite? Does the container come with a scoop? Weight and how ease of moving the container- do you have to carry or it has wheels? What of the handle- is it strong enough to support the weight of both the container and the dog food for a reasonable amount of time?

Though the reviewed dog food storage containers work good to keep your food safe from pests and getting stale, Iris 3-piece Airtight pet food container is the best that container you should go for.
