She packs ‘doggie dabbas’

We’ve all heard of the famous dabba service, whereby homemade food is delivered to your doorstep. On these lines, Rashee runs Doggie Dabbas in the city just for pets.

The concept is to provide fresh, nutritious and tasty food to the dogs. People avail of monthy and weekly package deals for their dogs and the food is custommade from a menu for each pet likewise.

She got into this profession when one of her dogs in Mumbai just refused to eat petfood sold over the counter. So, she decided to switch over to home-cooked food. She did an online course in dog and cat nutrition before taking on this venture.

There is a whole lot on the menu that is offered to the dogs. For more information about Doggie Dabbas, you can check out her website,

On the mutt menu

Rashee prepares all the pet food on her own. Some of the items that can be ordered in the ‘doggie dabbas’ include carrot crunchies, juju chicken and rice that is made from brown rice and chicken, pup cakes, doggies’ dimsums and more.

Apart from the regular meals, she also makes biscuits and cakes for dogs on request.
