Recently my dog tried Independent dog food from Costcutter. Find out what he thought of it.
Eddie, my cavalier King Charles spaniel can be a bit of a diva. He thinks the members of the house are there to do his bidding. He has a habit of standing by the back door and giving an imperious woof when he wants to go out. If he wants to play he will pick up his dog toy place it next to you and woof. It is almost as if he is giving a royal command.
In an equally royal way Eddie is very fussy about his food. One day he will eat all his dog food and the next day he will not eat anything. I am always looking for new food to tempt him with and was recently sent some Independent dog food from Costcutter for him to try.
Independent is Costcutter’s own brand and had over 600 lines which include fresh meats and vegetables, household items and confectionery. The brand has received industry acclaim for its Strawberry Bonbons, Shortbread Biscuit Fingers and Thai Sweet Chilli Crisps. Part of the range includes a pet care range with a selection of cat and dog food, treats, dental sticks and anti-bacterial cat litter. Eddie had not tried the range before so I was interested to see what the selection was.
The dog food range includes wet food and dried food. Eddie eats both, it depends on his mood. The tins of wet food come in two sizes, large and small. There are two flavours, chicken with gravy or beef with gravy. The food itself is very wet due to the gravy. It does smell nice and Eddie seemed to enjoy it. Checking the ingredients it contains 4% chicken or 4% beef.
As well as the wet dog food there is dried dog food, Independent Complete Working Dog Food. At my local pet shop recently I learnt that you pay VAT on dried dog food. However if it is working dog food then you do not pay VAT and as a result it is slightly cheaper. The Independent food can be given dried or moistened with warm water to make it softer. It always amazes me that dogs like dried dog food as it does not look appetising. Eddie will often choose to eat dried dog food in preference to wet and was happy to eat this as well.
Every dog deserves a treat once in a while, after all it is a hard life being a dog. You have to guard the house and go on long walks. The Independent range has Meaty Strips with Chicken, Meaty Strips with Beef and Doggy Dental Stix to give your dog a treat. They have no artificial colour of flavours and are enriched with vitamins as well as being low fat.
Eddie loves his treats, if he has his way he would eat nothing else all day. He really enjoyed the meaty strips and ran off into the garden to eat them. I think he thought I was going to pinch them.
You can find the Independent dog food range in Costcutter stores nationwide.
