With Valentines day on the horizon, it's the time of year where love is in the air! We have been doing a bit of matchmaking ourselves here at Natural Choice Pet Foods, and have come up with a selection of products that are Perfect Partners! Have a look at some of our match made in heaven products.. 👇
Lickimats are a versatile slow feeder, designed to spread your dogs favourite food or treat on, to create a slow, calming eating opportunity. Licking releases all kinds of feel-good chemicals that help decrease stress and create calmness. Lickimats available in a range of textures, sizes and colours.
What better to pair with a Lickimat than a soft, spreadable wet food!
Natures Menu Country Hunter pouches come in four flavours, Beef, Chicken, Duck and turkey. A fantastic treat option for raw and dry fed dogs alike, they are a complete, nutritionally balanced meal made with 80% responsibly sourced, farm-reared meat and a generous portion of delicious fruit and vegetables, including sweet potatoes, mixed berries and carrots.
By feeding a complete meal as a Lickimat treat, you know your dog is still getting its essential daily nutrients, so you can simply just feed a little bit less of their normal food at dinner time.
The Natures Menu Country Hunter pouches come in a convenient 150g sachet, which provides enough tastiness for a good handful of Lickimat sessions!
Kong and Woof Butter
Next up on our list is a rather classic couple, starting with the Kong! These fillable rubbery toys have been around for over 40 years, and still provide hours of enrichment and entertainment for dogs to this day. Kongs have a fillable centre, are made from ultra-durable rubber with an erratic bounce and are ideal for dogs that like to chew while also fulfilling a dog’s need to play. Available in a variety of sizes and materials there is definitely a Kong out there to match your dogs individual requirements!
Although there are thousands of options on what to stuff a Kong with, is there anything more classic than peanut butter!? Woof Butter is a 100% natural peanut butter. There are no added sugars, sweeteners or palm oil. Available in 3 flavours; Woof Butter Treat time is 100% Peanuts! Woof Butter Strong teeth and Woof Butter Joint & Movement are made of peanuts but have a few special little herbs and minerals added to help aid teeth and joints respectively. Give it a good stir to mix in those natural oils, and simply smear a bit inside a Kong to give your canine companion a truly tasty snack session!
Our favourite herbal power couple are two of Dorwests best selling supplements.
Garlic + Fenugreek tablets are packed full of natural active compounds to support general health and help keep your pet feeling their best. Garlic and fenugreek are both known for their beneficial health properties; garlic provides supportive, soothing and cleansing effects, as well as helping to maintain the body’s defences against parasites and infections, while fenugreek contains soothing and antioxidant compounds. These tablets support general health, to keep your pet in top condition, Immunity, Skin and Joints, to help maintain comfort and mobility.
Sounds fantastic right? Well, the effects of Garlic + Fenugreek get even better when paired with Green Releaf tablets, as together they have a synergistic effect, meaning together the effects are greater than if used individually.
On their own, Green Releaf tablets have natural soothing, cleansing and pH balancing properties. They can help to maintain healthy skin, particularly when it is sensitive, and can also be used to help maintain healthy joints and kidneys.
This powerful combination can be effective in helping maintain general wellbeing, aiding mobility and soothing itchy skin.
We may have already mentioned the classic Kong, but the Kong Wobbler can be an even more fun toy! This action packed food-dispensing toy provides mental stimulation is available in two sizes – The small fits half a cup of food, and the large fits a whole cup, making it an excellent meal time toy for dry kibble fed dogs, or a treat dispenser for wet and raw fed dogs!
The perfect pair to a Kong Wobbler is our Natural Choice Pet Foods Superfood 65 dry food! It is completely grain free, contains 65% meat and a combination of 5 different superfoods for each flavour.
It is available in over six flavours, and also in small breed which provides a perfect kibble size for dispensing from puzzle toys! The 2kg bags are resalable, which makes it absolutely perfect for use rewards and Kong Wobbler fillers!
If your dog is not normally fed dry food, using a high meat content and grain free kibble as a treat is an excellent option!
If your dog is normally fed on Natural Choice Pet Foods Grain free dry food, then using our Grain Free Superfood range, which contains up to 15% more meat, can really make the Wobbler game more interesting!
What better pair than a treat bag and some treats!
Whether or not you’re enrolled in a class at Sussex County Dog Training, brushing up on some real world training or practising recalls, having easy access to treats is important. The Company of Animals Pro Treat Bag has a magnetic popper and drawstring closure for extra security, this wide opening treat bag makes quickly rewarding your dog hassle free. The bag also features a smart zip fastening pocket on the reverse for extra storage and an elasticated pouch on the front for storing other handy items, such as a clicker or poo bags!
The quality of treats you’re using are also important to the quality of the behaviour you’ll get- if you reward with high value treats your dog will work harder to try and get some more of it!
The high value treat we LOVE at Natural Choice Pet Foods is JR Pure Pate! Made from 100% fresh meat, there is literally nothing else in there, no additives, no nasties, just fully and completely MEAT! Even the fussiest of pooches can be enticed by one of the many flavours- all single protein, there are choices of Chicken, Turkey, Rabbit, Duck, Beef, Lamb, Salmon plus a few limited edition flavours like Goat and Wild Boar. JR Pure Pate comes in a few different size rolls, ranging from 80g up to 800g. It has a firm texture so works wonderfully being cut up into little cubes to use as that all important high value treat!
Our final combo is a pairing that can really help keep your dogs gnashers clean and sparkly!
Natural Choice Pet Foods Grain Free Dry Dog Food is made with at least 50% human grade meat, alongside other natural ingredients such as sweet potato and peas, with no nasty artificial colours, preservatives or additives. The 50% meat content is made up with over 26% fresh meat, which means it's packed with quality protein for optimum health.
Available in ranges for Puppies, adults and senior dogs of small and large breeds, with over 7 flavours available, there truly is an option for all dogs! All flavours are baked via a special process called Frestrusion which involves much lower temperatures than conventional kibbles. This gentle bake (90-110oC) not only helps them smell and taste extra-special, but it also helps retain more of the natural goodness in the ingredients.
In addition there's an Omega 3 supplement to help support their joints, vision and to maintain a glossy, healthy coat. The added pre-biotics help maintain a healthy gut flora and, of course, they contain all the vitamins and minerals your dog needs to stay healthy.
So what can we add to this 100% natural ingredients list to make a big difference to our dog? A bone! We love meaty bones so much we have written a whole blog post about it! Click here to read.
Raw bones are the most natural chew for our dogs, with an array of health benefits, and can be a quick and convenient way of adding a fresh nutrient boost to any diet.
