dog food

We have taken our two dogs on short trips of a month or two and were abel to take enough food with us to feed them.
But we are leaving soon to do a circumnavigation and would like some input from full time cruisers on what they feed their dogs. Our dogs are spoiled and we make their food a mixtue of boiled chicken and rice with some dry food added for bulk. But to feed them just bulk dry food would cause an animal mutiny. One is a beagle and one is a spaniel. What do you full time cruisers that travel out of the country do for your dog food ?

Sorry, our dog got what we could find - just like we did - and liked it. Mexican, Bahamian, El Salvadoran - it's just dog food.

I can't imagine doing a circumnavigation with two dogs, especially that size. The amount of paperwork, the restrictions, quarantines, vaccinations, disease, potty issues, other unfriendly animals, expenses, etc. is just too much for me. I cruised full time for 2 years with a very small dog in some of the more dog-friendly countries and wouldn't do it again.

Godd luck.
