Well it’s been a busy week. The Human got a new phone to take better photos and videos of me reviewing products and places. However she’s not very tech savvy so we’ve had a few glitches, hence our blog delay! Honestly… Humans!
I was a super lucky pup recently and I received 3 different bags of Laughing Dog Food to try.
The Human said I could try one per meal over the weekend, but in return I had to do my research into how the food was made and the story behind the company.
First up I tried the grain free pack and I could’t wait to get stuck in!
What did I find out about the grain free option? Well if there’s one this that isn’t missing about this food on the Laughing Dog Food website, it’s information. There’s so much to learn about, which is great as the Human likes to know what I’m eating.
These dishes contain no added grains, which means they don’t contain any cereals like barley, wheat, maize, rice or oats. Some dogs like those humans of ours can have allergies to wheat gluten and other grains but these pups still deserve a yummy meal AT LEAST 2 times a day!
“Twice a day is plenty Millie!” – The Human
But unlike some of those wheat free Human foods that my Human eats this food will be enjoyed by all dogs!
I really enjoyed this meal, and around lunch time (when I feel i should be fed again!…! ) I went back and licked my bowl completely clean!
Next up (and I wasn’t happy that I had to wait ALL DAY for my next meal…) was the wheat free pack.
Continuing with the wheat free theme (which isn’t hard as all the products are) they only have one meat protein source and are oven baked using barley, oats and vegetables from the farm, (the thought of a farm makes me want to go and play with chickens…).
As well as Lamb, Chicken and Salmon completes there are also 3 oven baked treats for tummies that are sensitive to wheat. As Laughing Dog Food don’t use wheat, rice or soya they show a hypoallergenic roundel on the front of all of their wheat free packs.
Last up, for dinner I tried out Wonderfully Wheat Free Dental Oaties, so my breath would be fresh for bedtime.
I really enjoyed these, and the Human even let me have a few extra as I sat by my bowl and cried for more. Watch me munch on my meals by clicking here to watch my little video.
The Human liked that these came in a velcro resalable bag to keep the freshness in. These have been created to help our dental hygiene, and I know a few dogs that could do with help in that area!
As I don’t eat meat, no let me rephrase that, the Human doesn’t feed me meat because she’s a meanie, but mate Gatsby tried out the Chicken Casserole. I’m told this didn’t last very long, as he wolfed it down!
I really enjoyed trying out this food, and learning about this family run business born out of the love for dogs.
A little about the people behind the business
As a family they have farmed the land around the Laughing Dog bakery in the heart of the Lincolnshire countryside for for three generations…
Originally, Fold Hill was a mixed farm with sheep and cattle grazing alongside fields of vegetables and cereals.
However, in 1979 farmer Ted OBE bought a small, second-hand oven started producing dog food on the farm premises. The wheat grown in the fields would be used in the biscuit and basic food mixers and the barns that once had stored the grain would become a factory.
When Farmer Ted stepped back towards retirement in 2000, the running of the business passed to the next generation, his sons James and Andrew and the grandchildren. Today they farm 3,000 acres, employ over 150 local people and specialise in growing baby vegetables, cereal and, of course, producing high quality dog and cat food. The old oven was replaced long ago with a high-performance bakery that produces 35,000 tonnes of quality pet food per year.
Their passion for the countryside and our love of pets is behind everything we do. They truly believe that Fold Hill is a very different pet food manufacturer, and I’ve got to agree! Bravo Farmer Ted, and his talent family, keep on cooking. xxx
