Catering service for dogs in central Bhopal
Bhopal, June 17: A home-delivery meals service for dogs has been launched in central Bhopal city.
Non-veg Biryani, Mutton with Rice, Chicken Soup, Beef Rice, Mutton Soup Well, this is not a restaurant`s menu but that of services offered by Dog Tiffin Centre in India`s central Bhopal city.
Owner of the home catering centre, Prakash Verma, who also runs a mobile beauty parlour for dogs, says he started the Tiffin service after he saw the poor health of dogs in various houses due to lack of proper diet.
“I saw in various houses that dogs are not properly taken care of or they are not getting proper nutrition. So I suggested the system of Tiffin to the dog owners and they thought that it a very good idea. I also thought that I should start this for the welfare of dogs and so I started this Dog Tiffin Centre,” Verma said.
The tiffin service has come as a relief to vegetarian families, who were worried about the proper nutrition intake of their pets.
“I belong to a Brahmin family, therefore we cannot cook non-vegetarian food at our house. I heard about the services offered by Prakash and asked him to bring tiffins for my dogs,” said Saurabh Joshi.
The dog owners also realised that non-vegetarian food is very essential for the proper growth and health of the canines.
“The home cooked vegetarian food, which we used to feed to our dogs, was not a balanced diet. They were not so active or energetic before. But since they are eating the meals brought by Prakash they have become more energetic and active,” said Dhruvdev Singh.
Verma himself cooks the entire food and gets the fresh meat from the market everyday. He charges 50 to 200 rupees per tiffin.
He claims that this tiffin service is first of its kind in India.
