Green Dog Received Gold Certification for Sustainability

saw_gold_window-cling2016By Green Dog Pet Supply

The City of Portland’s Bureau of Planning and Sustainability has a certification program to identify Portland’s Greenest businesses. It’s a fairly thorough process, with site visits to verify the information given on a lengthy checklist of possible actions of sustainability. In 2013, 45 actions were required for Gold Level, and Green Dog had 53 completed actions. Our evaluator  told us that we were “in the top handful of scores for all high achievers we’ve worked with, and by far the highest number we’ve seen for any retail establishment”. Woo Hoo!

    My chihuahua cross is suffering with kidney problems & panting & trembling. I believe it is due to having canola oil in food. I need dog food without CANOLA OIL! It has already done in my own body. Thnx.

    There are many pet foods without canola oil. I’d look for a holistic veterinarian in your area and get him checked right away. If it is an early stage kidney issue, if it were my dog I’d be feeding a home cooked or commercial raw diet (check at your local independent pet supply store). If you have questions about kidney disease and food, check out Dogaware.com and look in the health issues section. Good luck with everything
