Hi the packaging states 2-18 months but the lady in pets at home said we could soak this with water and feed our 3 weeks old puppies is this correct?

Hi Zoe, as a general rule you really shouldn't start weaning puppies until their 4th week. Take a look at our guide here: https://www.allaboutdogfood...

My puppy has wolfed down your food for the last year. This week he’s turned down lamb and salmon. I note from the comments below that the formulation has changed - it looks like we’ve got an unhappy customer...

Our Cockapoo puppy has had your food since we had him a year ago. He’s always wolfed it down. This week he’s turned down both the lamb and salmon versions. I notice the 2 comments below and have realised that the composition of the food has changed.
Looks like we’ve got an unhappy customer.

We have been feeding our Working Cocker spaniel Wainwrights from the breeder recommendation. No problems until recently. The composition has changed and seems to contain more cereals. Herbie has now had an upset tummy and are looking for a change.

Believe that Wainwright’s food has recently changed composition. Now seems to have more oats than before. Our 6 month Working Cocker was started with tummy problems.

I'm surprised Wainwrights has only scored 3.4 as it has been highly recommended

Weening our 8 week golden retriever off of Puppy Burns and introducing Wainwrights. She is taking to it very well and we can see a definite preference as she eats the Wainwrights kibble first before touching the Burns. Her stomach is handling the transition very well too. I am happy we chose to go with this brand and will continue using.

One of my puppies has an incredibly sensitive stomach. Tried Royal Canine and other 'premium' brands, but all irritated her belly. Some googling highlighted Wainwrights as a potential solution - within a day she was back to 100%. I've switched both of my girls to it. The Salmon and Potato is a particular favorite, and keeps my darlings fit, healthy and full. Vet is overjoyed with the progress made since switching and can't believe that a 'own-brand' can be so good.P.S. A friend used to feed his dogs James Wellbeloved - after seeing my girls eating their Wainwrights, he's adamant that they're the exact same stuff. I've never fed mine JW stuffs, but the fact that he even thinks they're comparable is good enough for me.

yes, I have found this dry puppy food to be excellent for our Lhasa apso (7 mths ) he just loves it. He is healthy & active & its easy to clean up in the garden after he poops. (no loose stools ) I mix it with wainrights trays of turkey & rice twice a day. I would recommend this.

Absolutely fantastic food. Moved my French Bulldog onto this after having upset tummies on Eden. I just swapped straight over as the other food was making him sick all the time and immediately the sickness and sloppy stools disappeared. He is now a year old and on the adult food. I have no intention of moving him away from Wainwrights. 5 star food. Can personally recommend the Salmon and Potato. :)

My Phalene pup loves this, cleans her bowl every time. Very happy giving her this, no bad breath and no loose stools.
