Frequently asked questions

My dog is a very fussy eater, which food should I try?

We have had success feeding fussy eaters with our Super Premium Salmon & Potato and Duck & Potato. If you have previously tried feeding a Salmon food then Duck makes a great option as it is a novel protein source which can encourage even the fussiest eaters. The high meat content of our grain-free range makes it very acceptable too.


Which food is best at helping my dog lose weight?

Our Super Premium & Grain-free Senior/light foods are specially formulated 'diet' foods, which when fed at the recommended level can help your dog lose weight when combined with exercise. Senior/light foods have the added benefit of MSM, glucosamine and chondroitin to support healthy joints. Our chicken-based foods are also slightly lower in calories than other flavours per 100g.


Are all your foods hypoallergenic/suitable for an allergy prone dog?

Yes! All of our foods are formulated without any dietary allergens. If your dog is particularly sensitive, we recommend feeding our Grain-free range.


My dog has a pancreatitis and needs a reduced fat diet, do you have anything suitable?

Definitely. When vets recommend a low fat diet they mean a food that is less than 10% fat. Our Super Premium Senior/light has 7% fat and our chicken and rice has 8.5% fat content. In the grain-free range, try light Trout with Salmon, Sweet Potato & Asparagus which has 8% fat.


My dog suffers from Colitis, what food do you recommend?

A dog with colitis will respond best to a high quality, hypoallergenic diet. We would recommend our Grain-free range, and if our vet suggests a reduced fat diet then our senior/light food would be suitable.


How can I help my dog gain and maintain weight?

Just like us, dogs put on weight when they eat more calories than they need. We would recommend feeding our Grain-free range Salmon & Potato as it has a higher fat content. Grain-free food is more nutrient dense than other dog foods, so it is easier to get more nutritious calories into your dogs diet.


Are your feeding guidelines suitable for every dog?

In a word, no. It is important to remember that all dogs are individuals, and their diets need to be as individual as they are. This is why they are nutritional guides. Our guides are based on the Nutritional Research Council (NRC) guidelines for very active dogs (working dogs). 

  • For normal dogs deduct 50g per day
  • For low activity levels (e.g. elderly dogs) deduct 100g per day.


I have a terrier who is struggles to eat dried food, what can I do?

 If your dog finds standard size kibble off putting and difficult to chew, try feeding one of our 'small bite' foods. The tiny kibble makes it easier to chew.


My dog isn't a working dog. Is it ok to feed working dog food?

Its perfectly safe to feed 'working' dog food to a pet dog. You will want to consider feeding slightly less as the feeding guidelines are based on very active dogs- the bonus is our food goes further without compromising on nutrition. 'Working' dog food is also VAT exempt - so its even better value for money!.


How should go about introducing a new food to my dog?

Its really important to change a dogs diet gradually to avoid any upsets. Start by mixing adding a small amount of the new food to the existing diet and gradually increasing the ratio over 7 - 10 days.


I've got a new puppy, do you have a puppy food?

Yes, we have diets for puppies of all shapes and sizes. We have puppy diets in both of our ranges. We also have large breed puppy food to help support the growth of bigger breeds.


When should I move my puppy onto adult food?

Most puppies are ready to move onto adult food at 12 months. Larger breeds mature later and should stay on puppy food until 18 months.
