Early this month I was contacted by Cynthia, one of the owners of Sit & Stay to have Chester try their homemade pet food. I agreed to review for them since I’m all in when it comes to natural dog food. Sit & Stay is a homemade pet food catering business which was set up in August 2013 by three women and based in Bandar Utama and Dataran Prima, Selangor.
Samples for Chester to try. The large containers are Oink Oink (pork flavour) 500g each while the 2 small containers at 250g each are Lambiekin (lamb flavour) and Moo Moo Cow (beef flavour). The names itself are cute right?
The food are frozen. Defrost and warm then when you’re going to feed your pets. Those without microwave, I wish you luck in thawing the food. 😛
I took Chester’s food bowl out and he knew right away something was up. He’s all tongued out!
On the first day, I fed Chester Lambiekin with his portioned kibbles. This is the ingredients in Lambiekin.
Lambiekin smells like flavourful stew rich in herbs. I tasted a bit, it was almost tasteless save for the taste of the natural ingredients. I realized the meat size were quite large and knowing my dog will swallow anything yummy, I break down the meat to smaller pieces.
On the second day I feed Chester Oink Oink. This is the ingredients for Oink Oink.
Oink Oink smells like siew yoke stew. So yummmmmmmm! (by the smell of it) Haha Again, I had to cut the pork pieces into smaller size or else my dog will just swallow ’em like a vacuum cleaner.
Third day is Moo Moo Cow.
Moo Moo Cow smell a little bit like Lambiekin – flavourful herbs. Those greens are celery I believe.
Personally, I love Oink Oink the most (based on smell). If you ask my dog, I think he would say all three are his favorites. Haha
Here’s the price list for homemade natural pet food for dogs (500g)
Chickie Boo (Chicken) – RM12.50
Moo Moo Cow (Beef) – RM12.90
Oink Oink (Pork) – RM12.90 (Bestseller)
Lambiekin (Beef) – RM13.90
Here’s how I thaw the frozen food.
Defrost in microwave in actual container for about 8 minutes. Once the food become loose from container, I move it to a bowl (picture above) and warm the food for about 5-8 minutes. Then I use kitchen scissors to cut the meat into smaller chunks. If you’re wondering what’s the brown thingy and powder, well it’s flax seed and egg shell powder.
Now it’s perfect to serve to my dog. This is Oink Oink btw.
I was photographing the food with Chester at the background on the 3rd day when finally he said that’s enough and jump up to reach for it. Chester oh Chester, thanks for giving me a good laugh and show the world how gluttony you are!

Since these dog food have no preservatives (not even salt), it’s important to keep them in the freezer unless it’s time to feed them. Also do not heat the food for too long or the vitamins and minerals will be destroyed. As for the feeding portion, the recommended ratio is 2-3% of your dog’s weight. If you’re unsure, start with 2.5% and plus minus from there based on the increment/decrement of your dog’s weight.
I would love to feed my dog wholly on this but unfortunately it’s way beyond my budget. How much? Based on my dog weight nearly RM600 per month based on 750g feeding per day. *pengsan* Perhaps as accompaniment for his kibbles from time to time would be the safest bet. Also I would love it if the meat size are in smaller sizes. I believe not every dogs will chew on the meat and I’m not sure swallowing such big meats will be good for their digestion.
All in all, I’m glad pet lovers in Klang Valley can now offer their pets a better food option with Sit & Stay homemade natural pet food. 🙂
