Hi Abbey. It was last updated in February 2019. I've just taken a look at the Barking Heads website and it does look like the ingredients have changed so I'll get it updated asap. Watch this space

I'd be very keen to see a new review for Puppy Days by Barking Heads. Seems they have changed the recipe dramatically to make it higher in meat/fish content and grain free. My puppy is coming home with me next weekend and I'm keen to change him onto this rather than Royal Canin.

My 6 month old Labrador puppy has been on this for about 3 months now and she loves it! Very consistent poos, coat is very shiny and she doesn't have stinky breath. I do soak her breakfast because she'll gobble it so fast she is sometimes sick if not.

We've switched our Lhasa Apso puppy to Barking Heads' Puppy Days and she clearly loves it. She even prefers this as a reward for training over some of the treats we've got for her.
She was on Beta Puppy (her breeder's choice) and since switching to Barking Heads she no longer has stinky puppy breath. We give her this for two meals and then in the evening she has chicken with some BH on the top and is a very happy, healthy and energetic pup!
