It’s a dogs life


Our dogs seem to be treated like royalty and it seems as though we all agree; only the best will do!

When I was a kid Mum used to buy a couple of sheep heads from the butcher and boil them up. If any of us misbehaved we would have to pick the meat off for the dogs and serve it up with the jelly (I can tell you, you didn't half get a fright when you lifted the pan lid off to be faced with a couple of eyes staring at you!)

It's easier now, but the choice continues to be bewildering and you have to trust your pet shop or supplier to be giving you good feed and advice – but if you look closely at the nutritional breakdown on the packet you will see it varies. We used to work our dogs and so bought breeders sacks (VAT free!) of high quality feed and have stuck with that for many years. It's pricey but worth it. Apart from anything, with high quality feed you aren't feeding your dog rubbish so there are a lot less poo's to clean up (about half, we found, compared to cheap feed!)

You can see why I would be interested when I heard that one of Richard Jacksons son's, Chris, shared our pet feed concerns and during his research decided to help us all out.

Now, Jamie is a good eater so I wasn't surprised about that, but what was surprising was the content. His Millington's dog food has a very superior ratio of protein fat and fibre that truly rivals the rather pricey premium food we have used for years. Millington's also benefits from the fact that it has no artificial additives, colouring or flavours and is perfect for dogs with sensitive tummies.

It does seem rather good value and I think it would make looking after your 'best friend' much easier.
