Is grain free suitable for food intolerances?
Yes, choosing grain free food can help with many intolerances which can cause skin and digestive problems. Read more about how it can help here
Suitable for fussy eaters?
We have very good feedback from owners with fussy dogs that their dog has wolfed down our food. Any oils released during the cooking phase are then sprayed back onto the kibble which improves the smell appeal. Dogs have a keen sense of smell and will eat if something smells good. Unlike humans they don’t eat if something ‘looks’ good.
At what age can I move my puppy onto adult food?
We advise moving your puppy onto adult food from around 9 to 10 months of age.
My dog often has diarrhoea, can your food help with that?

It is always best to have your dog checked by a vet if your dog has continuous diarrhoea to rule out potential parasites, bacteria and viral infections in the gut. Overall, switching to grain free can help with digestive issues. Read more here

My dog is overweight, what food can I give them to control their weight?
We recommend feeding your dog our senior food which is lower in fats to help with weight issues. Obviously regular exercise and reducing treats can also help.
Is there a link between grain free diets and dilated cardiomyopathy?

This scare was first rumoured in the USA, where some bloodlines of Golden Retrievers have a predisposition to DCM (dilated cardiomyopathy). This scaremongering by the big 5 companies who were afraid of competition exaggerated this rumour. They also financed research into this and after several years of work, the study came to no conclusions.

We believe one of the reasons is poor quality food with a high legume/low meat/fish content often found in USA where their pet food manufacturing regulations are not as rigid as in the UK. Taurine is contained naturally in meat and fish and as our food contains at least 50% high quality meat or fish ingredients, we are confident there is no risk of DCM associated with our food.

Taurine is an amino acid that is considered to be non-essential in dogs. Dogs can naturally produce Taurine if fed a complete and balanced dog food.

Taurine in dogs is found in high levels within the heart, the retina of the eye, and the brain. If taurine levels are too low (taurine deficiency), these organs and body systems can develop disease.
Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a heart condition where the muscle walls become too thin and the chambers of the heart become too large. If these changes can’t be reversed, DCM will sadly lead to heart failure and death as the heart has to work harder and harder to pump blood around the body.

Do you offer a Breeder’s discount?
Yes we offer one free 13.5kg bags of puppy food for each breeder to give their new litter. In addition we provide a £5 voucher to all new owners.
