Raw4Dogs is a small, family-run operation. We supply a variety of raw and natural foods for your pets. We are located between Elmvale and Hillsdale in Springwater Township, ON. Raw4Dogs strives to provide quality, species-appropriate food at a reasonable price to feed to your beloved pets.
It has become a hobby, passion, and sometimes an obsession to find reasonably priced raw food to feed our four dogs (two Nova Scotia Duck Tollers and two Border Collies). After searching online for a one-stop shop in the Barrie, Ontario area we were unable to find one without going to the local grocery store and paying “retail” prices.
Raw4Dogs does the running around for you and is gathering it all into one location where you can find chicken, beef, rabbit, turkey, fish, game and more. We are also small enough to provide personal attention to you. If you are looking for something specific that is not listed on our website please let us know and we can work with our suppliers to provide an appropriate product for you.
HOW IT STARTED
It all started when we purchased our first Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever - Bodhi from Ardbrae Kennels in 2008. He was being fed a Raw diet at the breeders and we wanted to continue with this food. In 2009 we moved to Innisfil and had to find new sources of raw food. In order to provide a healthy variety of food we found ourselves driving long distances to many different locations. At first we were picking up an extra box here and there for ourselves and others. The word got out that we were doing this, the requests started coming in and Raw4Dogs was unofficially started. In October 2014 we made the move to Craighurst where we expanded our operation as well as our Family with a total of 3 dogs and one Toddler. Five years later we found ourselves outgrowing our shop once again.
With a 4th dog and new dream we have made what we hope will be the final move and expansion of the business to include a dog sport facility available for rent by individuals, instructors and event hosts. We hope the combination of our Raw Feeding family and Sport dog family we will create an amazing community for years to come.
