(12 customer reviews)


Puppies need a good diet to develop correctly which is the sole reason we’ve worked so hard to perfect our natural premium puppy food.  It’s suitable for puppies between 8 weeks and 1 year.  Start their development the right way without artificial ingredients, colourings or preservatives.  Great for developing digestion, and includes extra bone/joint support to help with their growth.

A few reasons this is your dog's ideal food...

All puppies need some very specific nutrients in their diet to develop properly which is why we’ve dedicated so much time to creating the perfect natural puppy food.

Don’t think for a second that we’ve neglected the taste as even the fussiest puppies love it.

Nothing Naughty, Just Goodness

We’ve aimed to be better than many of the other dog food brands available to buy which is why we strictly monitor what goes in to our food. We don’t use any artificial colourings, preservatives or flavourings because we strongly believe that this has an overwhelming impact on the long term health of your best friend.

    All 4 of my dogs eat this brand and 2 of them where fussy 1 suffered loose stools not any more my only concern is little more protine could be added but they all look healthy and so great .

    My young Whippet X puppy was slightly smaller than my domestic cat, would gobble her food down in one, often had a grumbling tummy & frequently produced really stinky, sloppy poops. So, I decided to try her with this food.
    The kibble is a good size for smaller mouths & from her first mouthful, she looked to be enjoying her new diet!! The ‘nasty poop’ cleared-up within 48hrs!! Plus, after a few days, she stopped gobbling down her meals and began eating far more slowly, still consuming every last morsel in her bowl.
    She has been growing nicely, (now roughly 2″ bigger than the cat), and in the 4 weeks between her 1st & 2nd Vaccination jabs, she’s more than doubled her body weight & is a lovely, happy, solid little puppy, with good energy levels, no excessive puppy fat & no ‘growling tummy’or nasty poop.
    I recently ordered a further 15kg of ‘Start them strong’ for my puppy. The ‘Next Day Delivery’ service is excellent!!
    Thanks Growling Tums’!!!

    Our puppy had been having very loose stools from day 1 despite the 2 very expensive brands we had gradually changed him onto.

    Came across this site whilst trawling puppy food reviews and decided to give it a go. Ordering was quick and easy, with free next day delivery. It arrived as promised, very well packaged, delivered by an extremely pleasant and helpful driver.

    We put our pup straight on the food and within a few days his stools had firmed up completely.

    He has been on Growling Tums Strong Start Puppy Food for 2 months now and is thriving. We have a very happy, healthy pup who loves his food so much we even use it as training treats.

    We give Nala our Jack Russell your brand of dog food. It suits her and she loves it. She is so full of energy. She even eats it all after she’s had treats. She 4 months old and weighed 2.7kg on her last visit to the vets. As you can see she is thriving. She is only a miniature J R. And so full of energy. THANKYOU

  8. Diane jones

    Best thing we ever did was put Nala our little Jack Russell on your brand of dog food. She loves it, there’s never any left in her dish. She even eats it after having treats, she likes it that much. It suits her because when ever we go to the vets she’s put the right amount of weight on. She’s 4 months and is 2.7kg. She’s thriving and full of energy. THANKYOU.

    11 week old cavapoo Kizzy loves this puppy food.
    Company provide good service and excellent delivery.


    Our new puppy loves this product, the other dogs love it too. I had to soak it in chicken stock to begin with but he now eats it dry. An excellent start for him.

  11. Angela

    As the breeder of my puppy had already weaned her on to this I have continued using it and find it good value for money. Much better than the puppy foods my others had.

  12. Mrs Prince

    This was recommended by the breeder I got my latest puppy from and we’ve stuck with it since. No complaints at all as she’s looking great and is perfectly healthy and happy.
