Gentle Dry Dog Food


Gentle dog food produced by Elite Dogs Limited is new to the UK market but is amongst the best. This dog food is cold pressed, unlike other dog foods that are dry extruded.

However, the disadvantage to a cold pressed food is that its shelf life span is not as long as dry extruded food.

Now I’m full-on obsessed with dogs and everything related to dogs. I’ve purchased every dog accessory you can think of, so I decided to collect my thoughts about them on this site.
