I'm a volunteer and former work placement in the dogs trust, and this is what the dogs there were previously fed on (these days, it has been switched over to wainwright's). Arden Grange is a good quality food at a decent price. Sure it's not the best variety, but it's far better than lots of other brands. I recommend this brand.

Hi we have always fed Arden Grange to our Staffords and other dogs. However at Crufts this year I was talking with one of their people on their stand. It would seem they have been bought out by a German company. They stated that their feeds wouldn't change. However there is a new update on here. Has it changed? My dogs seem fussy about eating, the Chihuahua x JRT is the only one who wants to eat it...!!

Dogs' 'doggy' smell is from their breath - unless they have been out in the rain.

Hi Gemma. I moved her off this & tried More (chicken) which I quite liked but still felt her stools were too soft. Quantity of poo was definitely less (twice a day mostly) & smelled fine. In end decided to try a food without rice out of interest so tried Barking Heads Fusspot (salmon & potato). Huge improvement quality much firmer & even less quantity & hardly any odour. She also stopped itching as much & her coat is fabulous. So could have been rice? Or maybe chicken (think all other foods were chicken). I haven't tried any other Barking Heads flavours - Ive been buying it online which is good value. I tried moving her onto Pooch & Mutt potato based slim & slender (manage weight) but poo took a nose dive so I stopped. When I was trying new foods I went even slower moving her over than the foods recommended. I hope you find the right food for your little poms ps I cannot confirm this is true but I was told Arden Grange use shark in some of their products & the quality of the protein isn't great

This brand has been recommended to me time & again so I thought I'd give it a try as it is available to buy in bulk at reasonable prices. My dog ate it happily but I was less happy with the quantity and quality of offerings from the other end! I had a similar experience with Wainwrights so I'm thinking perhaps it's the rice that has this effect on my dog

Well after 2 years I can finally say I'm happy with this dog food. My 2 cockers are thriving on it. Not had any problems.

My Labradors are all rescue and had different feeding issues when they came to me. One was a walking skeleton and the other two were morbidly obese. Have fed Arden Grange since day one (Light where necessary) and all three were very quickly returned to excellent condition. Stools of my two porky girls were disgustingly slimy, wet and stinky and within a week were firm, shiny and whilst not exactly odour free, certainly not offensive as before! Also, all of their teeth are regularly described by my Vet as excellent and the oldest Lab is ten!

i moved my 2 cocker spaniels to arden grange potato and rice (silver packet) because they had issues with soft poo or diarrhoea and their poo is pefectly shaped now not hard not soft and they are a lot happier and full of energy.I had them on bakers before that which from what i red and witnessed myself is the worse dog food out there.

I feed a mixture of about 3 different brands to my Cavalier - with a little with hot water, plus cooked carrot (or other cooked veg such as broccoli stalks) also a little liver, chicken or other meat (a couple of teaspoons of wet cat food if I have no meat to hand) then she has a handful of dry kibble for crunch. Her poo is never runny - textbook texture really! She doesn't drink a great deal so having some water with her 2 daily meals ensures she gets enough fluids. I weigh her every 2-3 weeks to check she isn't putting on weight. She hovers around the 7.2k mark - vet says her weight is ideal (she isn't a big Cav.)

I have used Arden Grange Lamb and rice for many years for Miniature Wire-haired Dachshunds, Norfolk Terriers and others as a breeder. I have been very pleased with the condition of the dogs, both coats and bodies and have yet to find one that won't eat it even visiting bitches fed on other premium foods. Also produces very consistent solid motions.

Can I ask how it effects the teeth please? I've fed beta to my chihuahuas and dachshunds and all their teeth are terrible at the age of 4!! They have had dental chews and plaque off on their food from a young age but still have bad teeth! Just got a cocker and don't want the same problem with him?! Any suggestions would be great :) thanks

I also feed Arden Grange to my mini wire - but intersperse with raw, such as raw chicken wings as that really helps them clean their teeth. Just thinking of giving Nutriment a go as I've heard great things about it

Susan Jefferies Gill 6 years ago

can you tell me where do you buy the chicken wings from - i am assuming they're not just wings meant for human consumption. Are they cooked or raw? My mini dachs has terrible teeth at 2 yrs old and i now have to brush them, which is a real pain

It is usual to brush a dog's teeth. Using a little pumice mixed to a paste is an option. There is pumice in dental sticks - a little can be broken off and mixed to a stiff paste.

My dogs have had good teeth till old age.

Apparently dog 'dental chews' are no more effective at removing plaque than ordinary dry biscuit. Cleaning a dog's teeth with a brush is the only way to remove plaque before it hardens and forms calculus - then it can only be removed by scaling.

My Norwich breeder has started feeding it after previously using Royal Canin mini and which my Norwich came to me on. New pup will be on Arden Grange so debating which dog to switch over eventually. Concerned about a comment from an airedale owner above about coat developing a strong oily odour - sounds unpleasant but have you experienced that with your Norfolks?

Shelley Tomsett Lindsey Martin 7 years ago

I have not had a problem using the lamb version but my dogs don't like the chicken variety so much. I do feed raw chicken wings as well to help keep the teeth clean and have been happy using this for many years over many generations.

Hello, I'm intrigued about your feeding of raw chicken wings to help the oral health of your dogs, is it an option even for large jawed dogs and I was wondering about chocking hazard? Thanks for the idea I never heard of it.

Royal Canin isn't particularly good. The company was taken over a while ago and they reduced their meat content.

Arden Grange Premium is a chicken based feed that is maize free. Their Pork and Sensitive diets are maize free too.

I am sure this used to be maize free? My dog always did really well on this, but over the last few months has been shedding - a lot!
A review of the ingredients and maize is listed- my dog has had problems with this in other foods before- shame, as this is widely available and not over priced.
