Let’s face it, choosing the best food for your pooch can be a real nightmare. With hundreds of different dog food brands on the market and every one insisting that it is the best thing since sliced bread, even working out where to start can seem like an impossible task.
Your Dog's Club Community
We all need to change our dog's diet from time to time. Whether it's because of a problem with the current food, because you're going on holiday and need a more convenient option, because your dog is moving from one life-stage to the next or simply because you think your dog would like something new, food changes are part and parcel of owning a dog. The problem is, for many of our dogs, changing foods is the first step on the road to the vet with digestive upsets.
With animal training becoming more popular, it can be a minefield trying to work out how best to train your dog. Our belief is that training should be fun for all parties involved, and is a great time to bond with your furry family member. For this reason, we promote using force-free methods, based on scientific evidence, to open up communication pathways with your dog and help encourage them to make the right decisions.
So you’ve just heard about the best dog food ever or maybe you’ve read somewhere that the food your dog is currently eating is a load of rubbish. It’s tempting to rush out, buy the new food, stick the old food in the bin and turn over a new leaf as soon as possible, right? Many of us have been there but before you go rushing in, it’s important to take a breath and consider the most important question: would your dog do better on a different food?
We all want to give our pets the best possible diet within our budgets but if you’ve been comparing pack prices or even the cost per gram you might well be paying over the odds for a substandard food. The trouble is, when you’re weighing up the price of a pet food, the cost of the bag or tin or tub only tells part of the story.

There is no police category for the kidnapping, theft or killing of your canine family member – their loss is treated as of less importance than the theft of a laptop. 1% of dog thefts are successfully prosecuted, the majority resulting in a small financial fine.
