It's extremely important to feed your beloved pooch a high quality diet. Just like humans, dogs need a diet that's filled with essential nutrients to keep them fit and strong. The dog food you choose can have a huge impact on not only your dog's health, but their behaviour too. You will find that the better quality brands include a higher percentage of protein, and less cereals and grains. Premium brands will have between forty and sixty percent protein, whereas cheaper brands are more likely to have between ten and twenty percent protein. With premium food, you tend to have to feed a lot less, so it actually works out very cost effective. We have handpicked all the very best doggy food brands, so that we can provide top quality nutrition for dedicated dog owners.
We stock all the most popular brands including James Wellbeloved, Fish4Dogs, Iams, Hill's, Burns, Eden, Naturediet, Autarky, Orijen, Eukanuba, Arden Grange, Natures Menu, Chappie and Lily's Kitchen. We also have specialised food for different breeds and dogs of different ages and life stages such as puppy food and food for older and senior dogs. Here at Time For Paws, we appreciate that certain breeds have specific nutritional requirements, and some dogs have to be fed a special diet. We have grain free and hypoallergenic varieties for dogs with sensitive tummies and high energy food for working dogs. Our aim is to have everything you need in one place. If you aren't sure which brand to get, call our experts now for advice.
It's especially important that puppies are fed a highly nutritional diet. They need plenty of energy and nutrients while they are growing and learning the ropes. It's a vital stage in your dog's development, and feeding them premium puppy food can make all the difference.
Getting a new puppy is a wonderful experience, and puppies can be super cute, but it's also a huge responsibility. Initially, it's best to try and keep puppies on the same food, and avoid changing their diet too much, as their tummies need to get used to their specialist puppy diet.
After a month or so on the same diet, you can try other brands by introducing them gradually if you wish. Take a look at our range of food for young dogs and find a tasty puppy mixture that your pooch will enjoy.
ADULT DOG MUNCH
If you want your canine companion to be at their best, and remain strong and healthy, then it's important to feed them a high quality diet. The food you give your beloved dog can have an extremely big impact on their overall wellbeing and health, as well as their behaviour.
Dogs need a diet that's rich in essential nutrients just like us humans do. Once your dog reaches a certain age, you can feed them adult dog food rather than puppy food. Here at Time for Paws, we sell all the most popular brands including classic budget brands, premium brands and also lesser known brands.
Our aim is to provide a wide selection of food brands to suit your needs, as we appreciate every dog is different, and individual dogs may have special dietary needs. If your best friend is a very fussy eater, or has an extremely sensitive tummy, we will have something suitable. We are experts in all things doggy related, and can help you to choose a brand that's perfectly suited to your dog.
GRAIN FREE DOG FOOD
You may have no idea why you should consider a grain free diet for your dog. If you don't know much about grain free foods, we are here to help. Dogs have been fed diets containing grains for years, but they wouldn't choose to eat grain in the wild.
A grain free diet is much closer to a dog's natural ancestral diet, and this is why grain free products are gaining traction and becoming so popular. Food and mixes that are packed with grains often contain less protein and more filler ingredients.
Some people feel that grains are hard for fido to digest, and that grain free dog food contains ingredients that keep your dog's tummy happy. However, as with all dog related subjects, there?s a fair amount of debate over this. What you feed your best friend is totally up to you, as you know them best.
WEIGHT CONTROL DOG FOOD
Although it can be tempting to give your pooch extra treats, it's very important that you monitor how much you feed your dog. Canine obesity is a huge problem in the UK, as a lot of owners can't help overfeeding their dog. Obesity can lead to serious health problems such as heart disease, diabetes and joint problems, and it lowers your dog's quality of life.
If your dog absolutely adores their food, they can still enjoy delicious meals and healthy snacks. We have a range of specialised food for weight control. These low fat mixes are specifically for dogs that need to lose a few pounds, or are prone to putting on weight. Certain breeds in particular, such as labradors, beagles, basset hounds, bulldogs and pugs.
One mistake a lot of owners make is not reading the manufacturer's guidelines when it comes to feeding their dog. It's extremely important to read the label and feed your dog the exact amount that each brand recommends, if you try and guess, you could end up overfeeding your dog.

SENIOR DOG FOOD
As dogs enter their senior years, they can experience a few problems associated with old age, just as we do. Their joints aren't as mobile and can become inflamed, they can get a bit stiff, and they tend to slow down a little.
Older dogs tend to use less energy, which means they have a higher tendency to deposit fat. On the other hand, some dogs can drop in weight due to illness. It's important to try and maintain a healthy weight throughout your dog's life, but especially as they get older. The food you feed your older dog can have a big impact on how strong and healthy they remain.
It's perfectly fine to feed your elderly dog a normal diet, but senior food contains a few beneficial and special ingredients. Specialised food for senior dogs will often contain ingredients such as joint care supplements, digestive aids and reduced fat levels. However, it's important to always gradually introduce a new diet, and consult your vet beforehand. Take a look at our senior dog mixes now or find out more information below.
If you feed your dog entirely wet dog food, you may want to add some extra crunch with some tasty mixer biscuits. Although a lot of doggies adore the taste of wet food, some like their meals to have a bit more to them. Mixer biscuits are an ideal way of giving wet food more substance and adding a complementary crispy, crunchy, munchy texture. They are usually fed in equal amounts as wet dog food.
When it comes to food, there are so many different options. We have a huge variety of food for you to choose from, because we want you to find the perfect diet for your dog. What you choose comes down to your personal preferences, but most importantly, what your pooch prefers to eat. Some dogs can't get enough of the tantalizing combination of both wet dog food and crunchy biscuits. We don't blame them, because sometimes it's wise to enjoy the best of both worlds.
