Whether you’re a first-time puppy parent or a weathered dog owner, knowing how to choose the right food for them is incredibly important.
Your pooch’s diet plays a vital role in their growth and helps their minds and bodies develop healthily.
But it’s important to remember that all dogs are different – so what works for one, may not work for another.
Luckily, we have something for all of your furry friends here at Pet Shop Online, and with such a wide range of dog food available, you’re sure to find something that suits their needs perfectly.
In this post, our experts run through all of our different options to help you better understand which would suit your canine companion.
Dry dog food
Dry dog food is the food of choice for many dog owners, as it can be much more convenient and cost-effective.
If your pooch is more of a grazer and tends to keep going back to their bowl throughout the day rather than scarfing their meals down in one, dry food will be perfect for them – as it can be left out for them all day without spoiling.
Dry food also makes the perfect training treat, and it’s easy to hide in toys to keep them busy whilst you tackle your to-do list.
Our range of dry dog food is available in a selection of tasty flavours, so there’s something to suit all doggies.
Wet dog food
For pups that need an extra hydration boost, have a sensitive tummy, or are on a calorie-controlled diet to help shed a few kilos, wet dog food is more than ideal.
Our line-up of wet dog food contains all the nutrients they need and is packed full of healthy fats and oils – catering to dogs of all ages, breeds, and sizes.
Again, there’s a plethora of delicious flavours to choose from, from chicken with vegetables to reared turkey, or from pheasant or goose to wild boar – so you’re sure to find something to get their tails wagging.
Grain-free dog food
Our range of grain-free dog food is designed for dogs with sensitive tummies.
If your pooch suffers from certain allergies or food intolerances, grain-free food will help satisfy their appetite without upsetting their stomach.
Grain-free dog foods are made using no cereals, and although there’s no wheat, rye, barley, oats, maize, sorghum, triticale, or rice, this doesn’t mean they’re any less tasty!
Instead, they’re made with a cocktail of delicious vegetables – like potatoes and peas – to ensure the texture and flavour are up to even the pickiest of pooches’ standards.
Large and small breed dog food
Both large and small breed dogs have different dietary requirements.
Large breeds – such as Alsatians, Wolfhounds, and Shepherd dogs – require a diet that supports their slow metabolic rates and joint health. Whereas small breeds – like Pomeranians and Yorkshire Terriers – need something that’s calorie-dense and packed with lots of high-quality protein.
At Pet Shop Online, we stock an array of large breed dog food and small breed dog food to help your four-legged friend get all the nutrients they need to thrive. With a wide selection of flavours available, you’re sure to find the perfect mealtime treat!
Senior dog food
Throughout your dog’s life, their nutritional needs change. If your furry friend is turning grey and showing signs of slowing down, it may be time to think about switching up their diet.
When your dog is around 9-12 years old, they’re going to need something that supports their ageing joints, boosts their immune system, improves their brain function, and aids their digestive health.
Here at Pet Shop Online, our collection of senior dog food is perfect.
Nobody likes to think of their precious pup getting old, but you must make sure they have everything they need to continue thriving as they gain their senior status.
Working dog food
To maintain their active lifestyles and promote strength, working dogs need a diet that’s rich in healthy fats and high-quality proteins.
At Pet Shop Online, our range of working dog food provides all the nutrients they need to keep their energy (and star employee status) up.
From some of the UK’s most trusted pet food brands – including Hunters and Forthglade – and with a range of flavours to choose from, you’re sure to find something pawfect – no matter if your pup is in training or they’re a seasoned veteran in their field!
