This will be the first time we have taken the dog to France, pet passport etc all sorted, but we were wondering would it be best to take a supply of his usual food or does anyone know what brands of dog food the French supermarkets sell?

Thanks ......4 weeks and 1 day and our 6 week trip will be underway , can't wait .

Why should Fido be excluded from the delights of French cuisine? Let him have what's available locally. France dog friendly. Pet foods are widely available. We have not had a problem.

There are lots and lots of different varieties in the larger supermarkets, and in specialist pet places,, but if your dog is a fussy eater then it may be a good idea to take what he's used to.  However, if he's a big dog then six weeks may require a lot of food!

What type of food does he eat at home?  Someone may have seen it on the pet food shelves of a supermarket.

Knowing how some dogs can be quite susceptible to dietary change I would take plenty of it's own food.
If the dog is only fed on dry food, most supermarkets will have Pedigree dry food, plus their own brand but that could be taking a gamble.
Tinned food is obviously available.

XVI yes?

As well is two words!
How does a sage know everything about everything? or does he? or does he just think he does?
Remember, if you buy something you bought it, not brought it.

We took our then dog to Ireland in 1991, the only dog foods available were Pedigree Chum (very expensive), or the local kind, name forgotten. He liked the local kind ok, but it didn't like him! Pre-caravan, we were staying in a room near Galway with tents outside when Bruno just had to go, in the middle of the night. We kept well away from the campers after that...

I'm taking a bag of my dog's usual stuff, but she's only small so it'll only be about the size of a 7 kilo bag.

We're going for 6 weeks too, a week or so after you, my first time camping there. Have a wonderful time.

When looking at cat food in France all the usual brands are there, would think it is the same with dog food.

Look at all the languages on the dog food labels in England

Feed him andouillette (pronounced on-dwee-yet) the famous tripe sausage of Troyes. Fido will absolutely love it. However, he may roll in it first. Be warned.

Seriously though, we take our pooch's usual dry food and let him have a little bit of whatever we have left over as a treat - provided it is suitable of course.

In my experience andouillette will always be left over!

Thanks for all the info. He's currently on pedigree so hopefully we'll be ok . Will take some from home and then he'll have goodies as well.
