As a responsible dog owner, do you wish to feed nutritionally balanced food to your pet? Are you on the lookout for healthy pet food? Still perplexed about the ways to pick the best natural diet? Fret not. All you need to do is learn a few factors and make an informed choice!
Good natural food provides the nutrition your pet really requires, depending on the age, breed and health. With so many food brands out there, choosing the right food is very daunting. High-protein, premium quality and all-natural diet are essential for the good health of your pet and thus you should look for a food brand which specialises in offering the best natural dog food. And the only way to find a trustworthy brand is having full awareness!
Here are a few factors which you must keep in mind while picking natural and raw food for your dog!
Start your search by looking at the label of the product. As per laws, the ingredients of every pet food must be listed in the order of weight. Beware of products which are made from cheap ingredients like additives, chemicals and by-products since these are not good for your pet. Such artificial ingredients and lo-quality foodstuff are difficult for your canine to digest. Moreover, poor quality food can lead to skin allergies and digestion problems.
Feeding a good quantity of premium quality protein is really very important for ensuring the good health of your pet. Dogs are omnivores since they can easily survive on animal or plant diet. However, if you wish your dog to thrive, you need a highly nutritious protein diet. Though vegetable proteins are very cheap, they provide very low nutritional value. Thus, you should look for complete raw dog food which consists of the highest quality proteins.
Depending on the stage your pet is currently in, your dog may require various things from their food. Unless your pet is super active, you should keep a watch on your adult dogs. You need to check what your pet is eating so that you can ensure if your pet is maintaining a healthy weight. Since older dogs require lesser calories, opt for a low-calorie diet since their stage demands easily digestible proteins with good moisture content.
Do your homework about various companies. Go through online reviews and see the feedback posted by various pet owners. You should even find out since when the company has been around. You must ensure that the company specialises in offering a wide variety of dog food. Once you are done with your research, choose the best raw dog food brand which works with a qualified nutritionist. This is because a reputed food brand can even provide tailor-made food to suit the unique characteristics of your dog.So what are you still waiting for? Time to bring home the best nutritionally-balanced pet food for your dog!
After watching all the pet food ads on TV, are you under the impression that every meal for your dog is a sumptuous buffet? Do you really think that every pet food is packed with necessary minerals and vitamins? Well, it’s a different story in the real world.
Though billions of pounds are spent every year to convince customers, veterinarians and government, more and more pet owners are now rejecting the conventional ways of pet care. Instead of relying on those factory-produced commercial foods, dog owners are now feeding nutritionally balanced natural food to their canine. This is because natural dog food is properly balanced and even helps in maintaining a healthy weight.
Wondering how to ensure that the food you are feeding your pet is completely balanced and nutritional? Here are a few tips to help you make the best choice!
While choosing the right pet food for your dog, it’s important to talk to a veterinarian. A qualified vet will look at the nutritional needs of your dog in relation to a particular medical condition. While doing a physical examination, vets use nutritional assessment as a vital sign along with pulse, temperature, respiration and pain to assess the health of your pet.
To ensure that you make the best choice while choosing pet food, consider having the body fat of your dog checked. Ensure that your canine has palpable ribs and make it sure that the abdomen doesn’t bulge out from your pet’s sides. Based on the physical condition of your pet, you can easily figure out the right calorie intake for your dog after considering its age and physical activity.
The Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) is a name you can trust. Thus you should look for a reputed brand which specialises in offering premium quality raw dog foods which are DEFRA approved. Be it minerals, carbohydrates or vitamins, these raw dog food recipes are nutritionally balanced.
Beware of pet food brands who add sweeteners and preservatives to make their food tastier. Needless to say, these ingredients which make the food more mouth-watering are empty calories. Thus, you should look for reputed dog food brands which do not use artificial sweeteners, added sugar, preservatives and artificial colour. By buying food from a reliable brand you can even ensure that the pet food is properly balanced.
The best raw dog food brand specialises in supplying food which is very high in protein and completely low in fillers. Since they understand the importance of protein, you will be able to find protein as the first ingredient in the label of their food. A raw dog food diet with the right intake of protein can transform your pet’s emotional, psychological and physical well-being.

About Natural Dog Food
Natural pet food is foodstuff which is free from chemically synthesised products and contains natural ingredients only. But, due to the limited amount of regulations on food for dogs, simply a ‘natural’ mark on the label may not guarantee its good quality.
Even when the product name contains the word ‘natural’, the food inside it may not be what it appears to be, actually. The food inside may not be what it appears to be since it is not fully regulated. It could just mean that no artificial additives have been used.
Natural Pet Food Vs. Commercial Food
It goes without saying that the biggest difference between natural pet food and commercial brands is simply the ingredients. Organic food remains totally free from preservatives, flavours and colours. A natural food should not even contain animal by-products like waste, blood, gristle, etc. However, it is always wise to see if the food you are buying contains some pesticides, herbicides or antibiotics.

Wondering how to keep your pet away from health problems? No worries. All you need to do is feed a biologically appropriate diet to your pet!
Just like humans, even animals need a definite combination of carbohydrates, protein, fats, minerals, vitamins and water to function normally. Without the right nutrition, your dog will not be able to perform its daily activities, maintain muscle tone, fight-off infection or build and repair teeth, muscles and bones. Feeding your pets nutritionally balanced diet can thus be the ideal way to provide them the nutrients they need for leading happy lives.
Still wondering if dietary changes will be beneficial for your dogs? Read on!
One of the greatest reasons why you should choose raw dog food in the UK for your pet is that these are rich in Vitamins C and E. While Vitamin E is good for the skin of your furry friend, C makes the bones stronger. By feeding healthy food to your pet, you can even prevent health problems and make their body stronger in fighting against virus, bacteria and other things which bring about diseases or illnesses.

Already February?! Well its taken me a while to get this new blog running, that and the fact I run 2 businesses, (well truthfully 3) and have 10 dogs that need me... Yes 10, so lets start the New Year new blog with River.
River, or to give him his proper name, Ivormyth River Pheonix, is my latest addition. A red dog, never wanted a red dog, chocolate, brown, whatever you want to call it but then I never wanted a white face dog, yet there's George, or to give him his proper name, Feroda George Looney, seeing the theme?
River pictured on the left (Georgie pictured right).
Fascinates me how people come up with names for dogs, and in the showing world and agility world there are many weird ones. Its the same in any sphere I guess. Pen names, Stage names, Band names etc, its all a magical world of sticking pins in, discussion, random words and eventually you have something thats sticks.
Why would you call a band "Wet, Wet, Wet"? "Duran Duran"? "The The"? I could list hundreds as music is one of my passions, but you get the drift. So just to start this blog, how did my dogs get their names? How did we get to River?
In age order...
Lily Fudge Cake, No idea where the fudge cake came from, it doesnt follow Lily, I wanted a flower theme, nature theme, but one day just blurted it out so registered her with that name.
Olli Ob Knob, seemed to fit as for some reason we were now on sweets, cakes, biscuits so after the Mcvities Hobnob, however only once in the history of Ollis agility career has it been pronounced correctly. Deemed rude? So often pronounced Obi K Nobi (a lot of Star Wars fans out there with dirty minds who dont eat biscuits!).
Irish Secret, well she was a rescue, she was brought over from Ireland, and at the time I was on a pedigree collie breed list, and I didnt want her to find out I was after this girl and ruin it, so I kept it secret. Simple, and she was called Twix in the rescue, so followed the chocolate, cake, biscuit theme....but not in her name.
George Looney, well hes gorgeous, handsome, steely silver hair it had to be the gorgeous Actor, he is also a Blue Merle collie and they are known to be slightly mental, so looney fitted... and totally not following nature or sweet stuff!
Oaky Dokey Blokey...Well, he was hand raised by me from 3 weeks old, and was tiny, a little Acorn, but we knew he was a fighter and would blossom into that mighty Oak. He was meant to be my husbands dog, he and his mate call each other "Bloke" so it just all sort of fell into place. Nothing to do with sweets or actors.
River Pheonix, the actor didnt have red hair, and is unfortunately dead but was quite attractive, and I had to have a mythical type name incorporated as his litter was the Harry Potter litter. Pheonix covered that, and in my little note book of possible puppy names was River.
So thats how names come about. No rhyme or reason in mine really, but they all fit and I love them all.

1 - What do you think is most important to your customers, price or quality?
To be honest I actually think that service comes first to my customers. Them knowing that we will always do our best to help them out or get them the items they need. Then I would say quality is next up - knowing that what they are feeding their dogs is only the very best.
2 - Why did you open a pet store?
We started our online business to really fill a niche in the market for easy to access raw food. There are plenty out there doing it but not everyone wants to buy 50kg of one product. People want variety or just to order small amounts but make it feel like a premium experience. That's where we come in... We are a premium raw dog food retailer, we only sell the best and provide the best service. In fact we are so committed to that we've even turned customers away before who are purely focused on feeding cheap, it's not about price it's about quality and that is what really counts.
3 - What is your most memorable moment since working at the store?
Well it has to be our first customer of course. A lovely lady who is still with us managed to get an order on our website a few weeks before we had even officially opened. However in true Wolf Peak style we got that order together for her and made sure we delivered!
4 - Do you have dogs and if so which breed?
I have an Alaskan Malamute (Arrow) - he eats chicken like it's going extinct!
5 - Which is your favourite Benyfit Natural product and why?
Well personally I think it's got to be the Premium blend. Packed with high quality meats, if I was a dog I'd be in heaven eating that. Arrow's favourite however is actually the venison treats! He goes mad for them, I'm convinced he just inhales them.
