It all started with Frank, my beloved dog. Frank had ants in his outdoor bowl and crawling all over his food. I had to find a solution and ending up creating Bugout. Since then over 20,000 Bugouts have been sold. I have Frank to thank for it. The Bugout Feeding & Automatic Water Station was developed by pet owner John Newman as an answer to the problem of ants invading pet food. Any pet be it dogs, cats, ferrets, etc, that eat off the ground can be impacted by this problem.
