Great article and an area of prepardness that I can also work on. We have one hunting dog and he is an important part of our family. We buy dry dog food in large bags, an interesting thing is that it is not completely dry, and does have some moisture and some fat, I've heard if you get the lower fat and the lower moisture content it has a longer shelf life. I also store canned food and routinely cook for the pup. I live in a salmon rich area and many of the local mushers dry huge quantities of salmon in the summer and these go into a storage room and are used as winter dog feed. This has been going on for centuries and if the dog is used to eating this diet, it is high calorie and they can do well with it.
