The Definitive Guide to The Best Dog Food Containers

Why have your dog’s food just lying around where it can be exposed to air, water, and pests and where puppies can chew through the whole bag of food?

Incorrect storage makes dry dog or cat food go stale and lose its flavor quickly. To keep your dog or cat food fresh and tasty, you need to keep it away from air, water, and especially pests and bugs.

Whether you are looking at just functional, over-the-top, or fun-fun-fun, there is a container for you. Let us look at fifteen popular choices.

1. Vittles Vault Airtight Stackable Pet Food Container – Best Pest-Proof Container

Best Dog Food Container – Frequently Asked Questions

Why is it essential to store food in a waterproof, airtight container?

Keeping kibble and treats in a sealed container is vital to keep the food from spoiling, from going moldy, and to keep pests out of your pet’s food. Obviously, ants are always a challenge to get rid of, but it is more important to keep mice and other pests out of your pet’s kibble to prevent deadly viruses and bacteria from spreading and making your pet sick.

How long does dog food stay fresh in a plastic container?

There is an expiration date on every bag of kibble. Take note of that when purchasing. Once a packet is opened, it should be used within 45 days.

How do you know if kibble is rancid?

The smell will be the first thing to capture your attention; stale kibble has a sour odor. Also, check for signs of mold and moisture. Moisture will quickly cause food to rot.

Should kibble be kept indoors or outdoors?

Storing the food bin indoors or outdoors is fine either way. You should factor in the temperature. If it is snowing, you can’t feed your pet directly from an outdoor container.

Picking the Best Dog Food Container – Have Fun

When investing in a container for your pet food, there are several factors you should keep in mind. It is best to make a list of what is important to you (e.g., quantity, glass/plastic/metal/wood). When you are trying to choose, go for the option that checks the most boxes on your list.

With all the fun items on the market, finding one suitable container will not be the problem; the problem will be picking the right container from all the fantastic products available.
