Street Food Goes to the Dogs
L.A. gets its own gourmet treat truck for pets
Dog lovers line up at PhyDough

Living in New York, I’m fortunate to have some of the best food in the country right at my doorstep. But despite the many top ranked restaurants, some of my favorite meals come on wheels. Gourmet food trucks have been popping up in cities all over the country, developing cult-like followings for their affordable delicacies.

Now pets in Los Angeles have their own food truck. PhyDough sells preservative-free dog treats made with organic, human-grade ingredients. They’ve also partnered with the Coolhaus Ice Cream Sandwich Truck for humans to make soy or yogurt-based ice cream for the pups.

PhyDough was founded by Patrick Guilfoyle, a self-proclaimed foodie who owns Double Dog Dare Ya, a boutique kennel in Burbank, Calif. Patrick’s five dogs, who serve as official taste testers, are particularly enthusiastic about his latest business venture.

What’s cool is PhyDough isn’t just a convenient option for buying healthy treats. The truck has become a place where dog lovers meet up and their pups socialize. Hopefully, this venture will catch up in other cities around the country!
