It’s simple. You either purchase your container from us, or bring your own and refill the container in our bulk section. We have carefully selected our bulk containers to insure freshness and contamination free food.
We will provide you with your feeding instructions and ingredients, so that you don’t lose that extra info from the bag.
Dog Food is $3.99 per lb and you will not be charged for the weight of the container. We also have the option of purchasing in bags, with the commitment to a recycling program in partnership with Earth Options. For more information, see ‘WHY?’ below.
Well, in short - we want to take part in saving our planet.
A common misconception is that some dog food bags can be recycled. In order to maintain freshness, dog food bags are lined - So even if you put it in your blue bin, they end up in a landfill unless the bags are brought to a facility willing to separate the lining and recycle the elements accordingly.
Use our refill option in store for ZERO WASTE or bring us back your Earth Options bag and it will be brought to the proper facility to recycle. Earth Options is committed to making sure they properly recycle their bags of food if purchasing a bag is your preferred method.
At Good Boy Collective, we are committed to only partnering with Canadian pet food companies.
Earth Options (By Pets 1st) is a BC based pet food company that has been in the pet food industry since 1994. You may not have heard of them...and that’s on purpose. They often refer to themselves as a ‘best kept secret’, relying on word of mouth and the great reviews of their recipes. They are only available in carefully selected pet businesses and directly.
Earth Options recipes strive for excellence in quality. Their recipes are simply superior in a crowded and confusing marketplace. They meet or exceed AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials) as well as CVMA (Canadian Veterinary Medical Association) standards for all life stages. Earth Options only uses the finest ingredients which are sourced close to the production facility whenever possible. Currently their recipes are manufactured in Ontario, Canada. There are NO by-products or artificial preservatives in any of the recipes, and they only use defined meat and/or meal sources (Chicken, Salmon, Lamb, Turkey and Duck). Earth Options strives to keep you informed and have never made a decision that negatively impacts the quality of foods, ingredients, or service. To learn more about Earth Options recipes, see here.
Earth Options gives back by donating 10% of their proceeds to rescues and shelters, and since 2012 they have given away 3000lbs of pet food to Canadian shelters/rescues. To learn more about how Earth Options gives back, see here.
