Why we stock Forthglade food and treats

In this series of 'why we stock', we look to explain the process we went through to make sure everything in our store is the best of the best. 


This month we take a closer look at Forthglade food and treats.

How did we choose what to stock?

When starting our store we were faced with 100s of brands of food and treats.  We were bedazzled and confused by the variety, as we are sure many people are when they go in to larger stores.

So, we based our decisions on our own personal ethos of what we feed Bob

- Natural
- Quality ingredients
- High standards of production
- Good for you!


I'm always saying it, Bob eats better than we do! ~ Sharon ~

Obviously, many other brands are available, but we've chosen what we believe are the best in each class.

How did we choose Forthglade

The first part of our journey, before opening our store, was to visit many pet industry trade shows.

We had the pleasure of meeting the management team of Forthglade at one show and we were impressed with their passion and ethos about dog food as well as their wealth of experience.

Forthglade's cold pressed dry food is made using natural ingredients with added vitamins & minerals to ensure it contains everything your dog needs to stay happy & healthy.

You don't need to mix the dry food with anything else, but if you prefer to mix up mealtimes, it's the perfect companion to the complete wet food ranges.

What does cold pressed mean and how do you make it?

🥕 Starting with good quality ingredients, Forthglade only heat the ones that need it (proteins and sweet potato) then add vitamins, oils and minerals

 🥕 then gently press them at a low temperature to seal in natural goodness and flavour

🥕 They are then formed into great-tasting, easy to digest, bite-sized pellets

🥕 The production of 'cold pressing' means that all the goodness and tastiness says in, making this a great alternative to raw food too.  So, if you feed raw food but need to go away for a few days, try Forthglade as an alternative.
