Why Choose CSJ?

How do we keep the cost of CSJ down?

We're farming people, so you know you'll always find good value at CSJ.

Here's what we don't do:

  • employ sales people - no salaries, no company cars
  • waste money on expensive advertising
  • use glossy packaging

And here's what we do

  • only source the very best natural, British ingredients for our feeds, herbs, supplements and treats

Our products don't cost the earth, or damage it

Dogs have been the focus of our lives for generations. Working with dogs, sponsoring dog sports and being around dogs. That's why we started making our own dog food over 20 years ago. Natural, healthy dog foods, herbs, supplements and treats – free from additives and harmful chemicals. We use recyclable packaging wherever we can and are always seeking to better our environmental solutions.

Great Britain. Great Nutrition

CSJ feeds are almost 100% British - using natural, high quality British ingredients. “As a company, we have extremely low 'food miles' – the distance our ingredients have to travel to the factory. We only import vitamins and minerals that we can’t source locally. We do all we can to support the British economy and plan to keep it that way.” Ceri Rundle, CSJ Founder.

Loyal customers trust us to feed their champions from puppy to senior, through Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. We believe in winning and the prize is a long, happy and healthy life. Our range is designed to meet the specific needs of dogs of all ages - from conception through to 'retirement':

  • Rich in real chicken, lamb, salmon or white fish
  • No GM ingredients
  • Made in the UK by DEFRA approved sites – we test every raw ingredient and finished product to make sure they meet both our high quality standards and our customers'
  • No artificial colours, additives or preservatives
  • Energy rich nutrition – we choose all our ingredients for the nutrients they provide. You won’t find fillers here!
  • Highly palatable and digestible
  • Little waste and no smell!
  • No animal testing involved – apart from taste testing by our own kennel. And they like it!
  • Clearly labelled ingredients – so you know exactly what you’re feeding. If it’s not on the bag, it’s not in the bag!
  • Fixed formulations for ultimate consistency – so you know you get the same recipe every time

We work as a team. And so does our range!

All our products work as a team. Individually or when you blend them together, they’re a very powerful solution to the specific needs of each individual dog.

Got a question? Ask Nicki

We like to do things differently at CSJ. That's why we offer a personal enquiry service. No fobbing you off with generalised answers! So, you can ask any dog health and nutrition question to our Nutrition Expert Nicki. She'll come back to you with an individual response for your particular dog. We'll help you find the right recipe that suits your dog’s digestion and activity levels and give you samples to try.

We choose to help dog sports at grass roots level

CSJ sponsors working dog competitions and clubs, as well as teams and championships. This hands-on approach continues to grow through personal recommendations, referrals and word-of-mouth. We sponsor large, small and individual events, as well as search and rescue organisations and fundraisers for rescues. If dogs are involved, we’ll be there. We want CSJ dogs to win all the way!

"Having such a variety of dogs in our household feeding CSJ's wide range means that we can provide all our canine stars with optimum nutrition from the super-charged agility dogs to the retired veterans." Vickie Shelton and James Coxon

Just to let you know that Mirren and Skye are both doing really well on CP21. Mirren hardly itches at all now and they both eat up every drop every mealtime. Skye's coat is looking much better as he was a wee ragamuffin when we got him, and we didn't think mirrens coat could be any shinier but it is!
