A great perk of working in real estate is that you meet all types of people with various hobbies, interests and a wealth of knowledge. A past client and I were trading stories about our dogs as I admired the beautiful coat on his Dalmatian. He went on to tell me about the raw diet he feeds his dog and the benefits he perceives from doing so. I felt it was worth a try and have started my Weimaraner Bodie on this diet.
Creston Valley Meats, is a modern day traveling butcher. Every two weeks they venture up to Northern California from the San Luis Obispo area in their white freezer van full of boxes to distribute. They offer both the Raw Diet options for dogs as well as human consumption food with a specialty of wild game.
You can follow their delivery schedule on twitter and they call/text you about a half hour before they arrive at the designated stop. In Walnut Creek it is at the Park & Ride parking lot on Rudgear. I jokingly refer to it as my canine drug deal. They open their van as you say your name they hand over the items you ordered in exchange for a check.
One day a K9 police officer unit was hanging out in the parking lot and I asked if he was hear to get raw dog food too. He had no clue what I was talking about, but went over to check it out. Apparently it doesn’t look like a drug deal going down 😉
I usually get a combination patty of chicken & banana or currently he is eating pork & anchovies. I also ordered some buffalo bones and had to give a lot away because my freezer did not have enough room. For $10, I got 20 bones. Bodie loves dinner time, I mix 2 patties with Honest Kitchen Base Mix and top if off with yogurt or cottage cheese (whole fat), he might even eat better than me – no sugar!
