In January 2011, we told you about an L.A food truck that served doggie treats called Phydough. Unfortunately, they don’t seem to have made it. Their last tweet in July 2011 said “Looking to sell the Phydough Truck and Brand – pass it on.”
Now we get word of a new line of “gourmet” dog food called Chef Michael’s (from Purina), and wouldn’t you know it, they are rolling it out with a food truck for dogs.
As reported in the WSJ: “While the culinary world has embraced the food truck trend, dogs have largely been left out,” said Joe Chatman, Chef Michael’s Brand Manager. “Chef Michael’s doesn’t think that’s right. Why shouldn’t dogs have food trucks too?”
A survey quoted in the article says that nearly 59 percent of dog owners surveyed have patronized food trucks and 48 percent would likely take their dog to lunch or dinner at a food truck that provided food for dogs if there was one in their neighborhood.
Six in 10 dog owners surveyed think that food trucks for dogs should be allowed to participate in festivals and events that are dedicated to food trucks.

The Chef Michael’s Food Truck for Dogs rolled through Boston recently and met several dogs and their owners who reveled in the opportunity to share a culinary adventure together with their dogs.
Dog owners everywhere can get involved by following @thefoodfordogs on Twitter or visiting facebook.com/foodfordogs to tell Chef Michael’s where the Food Truck for Dogs should go next.
Carvery Creations are the new line of dog food, and is available in three flavors: Beef Short Rib Flavor in a savory sauce; Stewed Chicken Flavor in a savory sauce; and Braised Brisket Flavor in a savory sauce.
Other Chef Michael’s offerings include: Well-Rounded Dry Dinners that are 100 percent complete and balanced nutrition for adult dogs in either Oven Roasted Chicken Flavor or Grilled Sirloin Steak Flavor; and Mouthwatering In Sauce meals that feature tender pieces made with real beef or chicken and real vegetable garnishes in three varieties: Rotisserie Chicken Flavor, Beef Tenderloin Flavor and Sirloin Steak Flavor.
