Grooming / share dog grooming

In theory, yes, they should and that's why it's a thing, but unfortunately the majority of people blow their experiences out of proportion and type with their feelings and not by the facts. This is a industry where the term "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" exists, because one person may really like my style, and another may look at it and call it "wrong", because I left the head a little too fluffy, or not fluffy enough, or I had to shave their dog because it was so matted their skin is raw. So someone will review just because they don't like my style or because we had to do something they didn't want to do, so they're unhappy and need some sort of justice for it to make them feel heard, and it goes: "They did my dog's haircut wrong/they shaved my dog and I told them I didn't want that, crappy groomers, don't go here.". That's my name smeared, when I did nothing wrong.

Now, people who are happy typically don't go out of their way to review a shop unless they're feeling overwhelmingly satisfied with a service, but how often does that happen? Do you go to your local drug store and review them afterwards because the cashier was nice to you? Not very many do.

Online reviews cause more problems than help us.

Thanks for that, I wasn't aware of the organic filter. We're definitely sticking with dry, so will continue with the research.

I haven’t any direct experience of searching for free range foods and we don’t have a filter for them on the Dog Food Directory. The nearest is the organic filter. We have a filter for British foods. I have just ticked those two plus natural and no red ingredients. It only returned the following results:

Burns Organic (dry)
Nutriment Laverstoke Park Farm Range (raw)
Natural Instinct Country Banquet (raw)
Naturaw Organic Balanced Meals (raw)
Heights Farm Dietary + Plus
Lily’s Kitchen Organic Bake

If you prioritise British made without the organic filter the choice will be greater but I think you may need to contact the individual manufacturers to ask whether their meat comes from free range poultry and animals.

You can make your own dog food, in which case you will know exactly what it contains. However, this takes time and research to provide the correct nutrition. We Cook for Dogs can help you with this. Different Dog and Butternut Box are UK companies that make their own fresh food but it can be a more costly option.

Dog foods / British or Free Range Options

Hello all,

Can anyone recommend a dry food that uses British and/or free range meat?

Currently feeding the oldie Autarky mature and the baby Harringtons or Autarky grain free. So, ideally we want something similar, however I am open to whatever might be out there.

Thanks for your help.

Hello and welcome to the forum Zeldaella. What fresh food do you feed your dog? Would be interested to know, especially if you home cook.
