Every dog owner has had this experience: You’re packing for a road trip and scrambling to get all of your dog’s necessities together. But what is the best way to pack their food? Garbage bag, mason jar, or some kind of pet food container?
You could put it in a resealable plastic bag and risk it popping open as soon as you hit a bump in the road, causing the food to explode all over your car, leaving pebbles that take months to find in those nooks and crannies between your seats.
You could use a grocery bag, but those always rip open. Not to mention single-use plastic is extremely wasteful. What about a canvas bag or a plastic container such as Tupperware? With a bag, there’s risk of spillage and the dog-food-smell will still linger for weeks. If you pack the food in a Tupperware container, you’re left packing around an empty or mostly air-filled tub towards the end of your trip. That’s not exactly space efficient.
So then you’ve either got to throw away plastic containers or let the smell of dog food seep into everything… Sigh. But you shrug it off because, well, that’s the life of a dog owner, right?
The Airscape Patented Design – Not Just Airtight, But Airless
Well, it doesn’t have to be. There’s now a device that solves all of these problems. The Airscape Pet Food Container, a product of the Airscape line, is the perfect hack for storing your dog food or dog treats in a way that is compact, odor-free, and sustainable.
The original Airscape storage container for dry goods has a patented lid design that actively removes and locks out air to preserve and protect the freshness and flavor of the goods. You simply slide the container lid further down the bucket as the food runs out to keep it fresh and sealed tight.
The extra advantage of this is that you then have additional storage space above the lid for dog bowls, toys, or leashes–you name it. The food only takes up the exact amount of space that it should–no more and no less.
The Airscape Pet Food containers are made from a durable and BPA-free copolyester. They’re stackable and square-shaped to save space, which is perfect for keeping dog, cat or even human treats super fresh for a really long time. In fact, the original Airscape is designed for coffee and all different kinds of dry goods to maintain their freshness.

Pro-Tips for Our Friends Living In Vans
If you are living or traveling in a camper van or RV, this set of containers may just be the perfect solution for optimal storage and preservation of all your dry goods. Another thing to note is that if you are hard on your things when you’re adventuring, or you’re worried about investing in something that would inevitably break, Airscape has you covered in that department too. The Airscapes are made of durable, scratch- and stain-resistant materials.
The stackable Airscape Pet containers come in small, medium and large sizes to fit your specific needs. Or, you can also buy a set with one of each size. If those sizes aren’t perfect for you, they’ve got other options.
The original Airscapes come in two sizes, 32 and 64 ounces. With these, there are a variety of stunning colors to choose from. So if you dig the aesthetic, these may be perfect to match for your style or your kitchen. If none of those sizes work and you are looking for something much larger, that’s where the Airscape Bucket Insert Lid comes in. With the Airscape Bucket Lid, you can store food in any 3 to 7-gallon bucket for ultra long-lasting preservation.
Like the Airscape, it traps out the air completely as you slide it down the bucket, then locks the lid in place. This is definitely one of the best storage products on the market, and it is definitely the way to go when storing a large amount of dog food–whether you’re on the road or not!
So the next time you want to airscape the hustle and hit the road with your pup, packing should be a little more convenient.
