From Puppy Steps to senior years.
Choosing the right food is never easy. There are so many to choose from and knowing what to look for can be difficult when you aren't sure what you're looking for in a food.
Having been involved with finding and training dogs and puppies for a number of years at Puppy Steps, one thing we had noticed was that choosing and transitioning from one food to the another could be a challenge. Some dogs can eat what they want without any issues, others only have to look at a different food and they get upset tummies. What about the ingredients? Are the ingredients good quality? Are there any packers or fillers? Is it full of colourings? Is this the best food that I can feed my dog? These are all things which I worry about as a dog owner.
We needed a food that was easy to digest, had a high meat content, but not so high that it was too rich, was grain free, used high quality ingredients and wasn't full of packers, fillers and colourings. What we were looking for was the best all round food we could find. Our much loved family pets can't make the choice for themselves so we, as dog owners, have a duty to make the right choice for our pets.
Having trialed many different brands, from known top names, to budget kibble and still not finding a food the majority of dogs were happy with, we finally decided to develop our own food. That way we would know exactly what was being used and where the ingredients came from. Over a number of months working with nutritionists and veterinarians to get the balance right, trialing many different combinations and ingredients, we finally found a recipe which works. Dogs and puppies adapt to it quickly. Its nutritious, tasty and dogs love it and that is how Puppy Steps Dog Food came to be.
