ATTENTION ALL DOG LOVERS!!
The Dog Food Truck is the coolest new pet store in RVA!
Based out of a renovated vintage camper, The Dog Food Truck is Richmond’s ONE and ONLY mobile retail store for all things doggo! TDFT travels around the RVA area and provides ALL dog owners (and lovers) with a fun and unique retail experience!
The Dog Food Truck prides itself on its select inventory and is always sure to be stocked up on healthy all natural dog treats, fun and interesting dog toys, humorous one-of-a-kind accessories, and get this, they even carry
dog “BEER”!! (but don't worry, it's non alcoholic!)
By making the shopping experience a little bit more fun and a whole lot more convenient, The Dog Food Truck is looking forward to helping you spoil that doggo!
Here is what one customer had to say about TDFT:
“I was out and about one afternoon and just happened to have stumbled upon this amazing little shop; and I’m so happy I did, because it’s honestly something I never knew I needed. It’s ran out of this adorable renovated vintage camper, which is so cool, and it was full of some of the funniest things! I’ve been back a few times already and each time feels like a new experience. Not sure who loves TDFT more; me or my dog!”
- Sheri Garner, RVA resident and proud customer.

Although the idea of The Dog Food Truck had been stirring for years, it wasn't until early 2020 that Hailey Lew (sole owner and operator of TDFT) finally put it into motion. With zero background in business and unsure where to start, she spent countless hours in front of the computer reading, researching, and absorbing all things pet retail.
But once she got the ball rolling, it was full steam ahead. Any free time she had after getting home from her full time job as a Mammography Tech, she spent it on The Dog Food Truck. It was all moving smoothly along until mid March, when COVID reared its ugly head and disrupted our day to day lives, leaving her furloughed from her full time job. However, according to Hailey, this ended up being a blessing in disguise as she was now able to spend her days dedicated to TDFT and pursuing what she was knew she was meant to be doing all along.
Hailey currently works full time as a Mammography Technologist but with her intense love of dogs and passion for her nichey biz, she hopes one day TDFT will be the only thing she focuses on. She has two adorable mutts of her own which she adopted from the Fluvanna SPCA 11 years ago, Aubie and Tinsley. Both of those girls are the loves of her life and she is always working hard to make sure they are happy and healthy.
Ever since Hailey was a child, she had an intense love for all animals, but always felt the greatest connection to dogs. She knew from an early age that she wanted to work with them but struggled over the years trying to figure out in what capacity. It wasn't until the idea of The Dog Food Truck came along that she knew she had FINALLY figured it out. And from that moment on, there was no stopping her.
Hailey couldn't have imagined a better city to begin TDFT's journey and is so excited to see what the future holds.
The Dog Food Truck is a dream come true for her.
