Canine Nutrition
The dos and don'ts of feeding your dog

Diet and Nutrition for your dog

If you’ve ever found yourself bewildered by the sheer variety of options in the pet food aisle, you’re not alone. The world of canine nutrition is wild and confusing - a true minefield for even the most devoted dog parents.

One thing is becoming increasingly clear: gut health has a profound impact on behaviour across the animal kingdom, including in our beloved dogs (and us humans too!). It's more important than ever to ensure your dog receives the right nutrition to optimise their brain function and mental health, as well as their physical well-being.

We’ve put together this guide with some of our personal favourites to help you choose the best food for your dog's unique needs, along with some top tips to keep your furry friend in tip-top shape!

The link between the gut and behaviour

Ensuring your dog eats a nutritious and balanced diet is crucial for maintaining a healthy environment in their gut where beneficial bacteria can thrive. Studies have shown that an imbalance in gut bacteria can lead to behavioral issues and even neurological problems. If your dog is experiencing any of the following issues, it's worth considering their diet and gastrointestinal health as potential factors.
