Food truck goes to the dogs

Posted: Updated:
JOHNSON COUNTY, KS (KCTV) -

There's a food truck in the Kansas City metro that's turning heads – its focus is on our four-legged friends.

Lana Robinson knows her customers well.

"Bailey's been coming to the truck for a long time too," she said.

When the weather is nice, she and her husband Kyle spend weekend mornings greeting their food truck customers visiting dog parks in Johnson County, KS.

"We go to dog events, dog parks, 5K's, any dog-related things in Kansas City," Lana Robinson said.

The good Dog 2 Go food truck is for the shorter, furrier customers. It offers a choice of baked bones, beverages and even some accessories that make a walk in the dog park a little more rewarding.

"So often you go into PetSmart, Petco, all those treats are made in Brazil or Mexico. Ours are all human-grade ingredients," Lana Robinson said.

Meaning humans could eat them too, not that they may want to.

"It's something you or I could eat, so you know what you're feeding your dog and that today is so important because dogs are kind of like family members," she said.

Lana Robinson and her husband launched Good Dog 2 Go, Kansas City's only dog food truck, a year ago after a visit to Austin, TX.

Their customers haven't stopped barking about it since.

People can find their food truck at Heritage, Stoll and Shawnee Mission dog parks. They post their schedule on their Facebook page.

The couple is also working on a website so people won't have to wait for nice weather to score some treats for their pets.
