FAQs

Delivery

If I order now when will I receive my food?

As a rule of thumb if you order with us before 11:30 on a weekday you’ll receive your dog food the very next weekday.  For a precise delivery day please look on the individual product pages.  The delivery day is shown right underneath the order button.  Keep in mind that bank holidays are excluded from this rule as our Sled Dogs insist on taking the holiday!

Do I need to be in on the day of delivery?

No. Our courier company will leave your order in a safe location if you tell us to do so during the checkout process.  If you use a mobile number during the checkout process we’ll also send you a text with a 1 hour delivery window on the day your parcel is due to arrive.

Do you only deliver within the UK?

No. We can arrange delivery to Mainland Europe too. We have several customers that order from France, Spain and Germany. Email us if you’d like delivery information in advance.

Is delivery really free?

Delivery is free to Mainland UK for all orders over £29. Spend less than £29 and there is a flat fee of £2.99.  Live in an area dictated by our courier firm as ‘hard to reach’ then we need to charge a surplus for delivery.  This will be made clear in advance during checkout.

Which dog food would you suggest for a really fussy dog?

That’s an easy one! The two foods that convert fussy dogs in to dinner time lovers are our Delicate Duck & Potato and Scrumptious Salmon & Potato. If you’ve already tried a fresh Salmon based food with no luck, then try our Duck & Potato. Duck is very appealing to dogs as it’s such a novel protein source.

Our Senior/Light dog food and our Comforting Chicken & Rice are both low in fat.

Dogs with Colitis respond well to high quality diets.  As our dog foods are all hypoallergenic and made from high quality protein all of them could help ease your dog’s symptoms.  If your vet has advised you to limit fat intake then our Golden Oldies Senior/Light and Comforting Chicken & Rice will work best.

Do you offer samples?

Yes, samples can be ordered here for a small fee. Please note that samples only really good for owners of notoriously fussy dogs. If your dog has digestion or allergy issues, we would always suggest buying a larger bag from us. You need to introduce dog foods slowly to see the true benefits of the food and this is best done over a period of at least a week and a half. You might be worried that you’ll waste food should things not go to plan, but we have an extremely high success rate 🙂

Yes, we have feeding guides for all our individual dog foods.  Please look on the product pages underneath the ‘More Info’ tab near the bottom of the page.  These guides are based on NRC suggestions for very active dogs.  For normal activity levels deduct 50g per day.  For low activity levels deduct 100g.  Keep in mind that every dog is different and that these are only guidelines.

What’s the difference between your standard range and gourmet range?

Our gourmet range contains a higher percentage of meat and uses novel carbohydrates such as sweet potato and fresh fruits.  It also uses vegetable fat instead of poultry fat making it ideally suited to dogs allergic to chicken and poultry.
