Homecare Dogfood now provides daily deliveries of dog meals to the likes of Bollywood A-listers and top executives.
"The dogs know that the food is coming. They jump up. It's so nice to see that, to know that they are waiting for the product. They don't need to see a watch. They start barking. They're very intelligent animals," Khan is quoted as saying in the AFP article which prompted me to write this post.
Four years ago, Khan got inspiration for the idea and worked on overcoming his fear. Undertanding that dogs are members of the family, he undertook research into appropriate foods for different breeds and ages, noted the favourite foods of his clients' dogs and spoke to animal health specialists.
The first meal was a meat and rice mixture, similar to those that vets sometimes recommend for dogs with a sensitive tummy. The local strays loved it, and the potential clients who were offered free samples found themselves signing up to deliveries.
