Where to get Free Dog Food Samples
You can get free dog food samples by these avenues that I will list out for you. You can start at your vets place to see if the vet has dog food samples or coupons to get free dog food samples. Start there on your journey to free dog food samples.
Ask the vet if he has samples or if he knows of local places to get free dog food samples. He may know of a resource, local or online to get these samples. You cannot know what your vet knows until you have asked for his advice on this.
Check online at dog related sites and freebie sites to look for dog food samples and coupons. Sometimes a dog related site will have an offer or so for dog food samples. Try not to go to the CPA ads as they tend to have you fill out surveys and then the samples may not come. Rather, look for samples where the only form you fill is an address and possibly a Captcha for your sample.
Look on Craigslist and Freecycle, whichever is available for free dog food of any sort to get your dog food when you do start out with a new dog. This way you can get a head start on your dog food needs. These 2 places are known places to get free dog food on occasion.
Watch the free classifieds on newspapers and community/neighborhood free papers for this as well. Sometimes local community handout papers have a free section for you to scan and get various goods, free dog food being one of the many free things on these newspapers. Check for Saturday/Sunday inserts, depending when your newspaper makes the inserts and sometimes free dog food sample mail-ins or store redemption can occur there. Check these and if there is one, take advantage of this.
Other times, just email the dog food companies, like Pedigree, and ask if there are any samples available for dog food products. Sometimes they will send you a coupon for a free dog food sample. Also, call them up. Sometimes a phone call to these companies also can work.
Ask at pet stores when you checkout or go to customer service and inquire if there are dog food samples. Sometimes stores have samples out to be able to give you. Also, in the store, check the dog food packaging for peelies and coupons for a sample of dog food.
Check free stuff sites and free stuff forums as well. Free stuff forums are very up to date with freebies. Use the forum search function to look for dog
food freebies. There are times when this will appear in a recent post and you can secure a dog food freebie. It pays to look all over and ask friends.
