“It didn’t take a lot of persuasion to see the benefits of CSJ feeds. The first thing I noticed was the shine to my dogs’ coats and I’ve found that at the end of a lot of hard work they have kept condition really well this season.” Billy Steel Jnr

Dear CSJ team

At the ripe old ages of 11 (ish) and 13 (ish) switching to a new food was no trouble with regards to introducing it slowly (too slowly as far they are concerned!) and Dem Bones are a wonderful incentive for them to not "forget” their recall and training – or even just remind them what good dogs they are really!

Incidentally after today's delivery – my third – the driver asked me about the food and will be telling his daughter all about it for her staffy!

My response was - I now buy a better food at a cheaper price and more conveniently than if I popped down to PaH to buy Chappie/Bonkers/Pedigree!!

Thank you for a good food at an excellent price and brilliant delivery service.

Jo (and speshall springer snuffles from Sam & Millie)
