It’s no secret that at Pooch & Mutt we’re a team of animal lovers, so we thought it was about time we introduced you to the pooches behind the people that supply your dog’s their dinner! Meet some of the team members that work at Pooch & Mutt and learn about our very important pooches! They’re the taste testers to all our products, so find out what we feed our own pooches and why.
Role: CRM Manager
Pooches: Bonnie (aka Bon) & Max
Breed: Bon is a 12 ½ year old German Shepherd who I got when she was just 8 weeks old, she’s still my baby even though she’s a senior! I also have a 5-year-old CRAZY Chocolate Labrador named Max; he was rescued around 3 years ago.
I started here in October 2021 but have been feeding my two dogs Pooch & Mutt for 2 years now! Both of my pooches have suffered with joint problems terribly. Bon is an old girl who experiences arthritis, and Max has had multiple operations after damaging his Cruciate Ligament (I said he was crazy). I originally discovered Pooch & Mutt whilst looking for grain free alternatives to the previous food I was using… this led me to discover the Joint Care range! Since using Joint Care dry food, I've seen a vast improvement in their mobility. They no longer struggle as much as before, and their walks become longer. I also add some of our Salmon Oil to their food, which is also known to aid stiff joints, and they have honestly never looked healthier! Their coats are soft and shiny, and they certainly enjoy it too!
Role: Partnerships Manager
Breed: 12 year old rescue Staffy
"I'm Cat, the (ironically named) Partnership Manager here at Pooch & Mutt. I live up by the Peak District with my partner and 12 year old rescue Staffy, Tilly.
We've been feeding Tilly the Joint Care dry food recipe with a topping of Chicken Pumpkin & Pea wet food and a teaspoon of the Mobile Bones supplement for almost 2 years now and the difference in her mobility has been incredible. She began struggling on long walks in the hills and couldn’t jump up onto her favourite armchair at home around 2 years ago, so we actually built her a makeshift step to help her get up and switched her diet to Pooch & Mutt. After about 6 weeks of her new Pooch & Mutt diet, we were able to remove the makeshift step and she's even been mistaken for a bouncy pup a few times, when running around our local park recently, the difference is incredible.
It's been amazing working for Pooch & Mutt and learning more about Tilly’s nutritional needs, but nothing beats seeing the real life benefits and happiness her new diet has given her!
Role: Head of eCommerce
Breed: Fox Red Labrador, from a littler of 9, Parson made the move from the North to become a Pooch living the London life.
In the words of Parson...I just love a tennis ball and I've been known at times to do a runner with some of my fellow dog friends balls in hope of adding to my current collection of around 7! I also recently learnt a new trick of how to open the pantry cupboard so I can go and help myself to some of my favourite treats, however, my owners for some reason have now moved them really high up that I can't reach them anymore. I love human ears and if you give me the chance, I'll lick them at any opportunity. I also love long walks in the fields and enjoy nothing more than playing with my dog friends in a game of stick chase.
My tail never stops wagging, I'm a really happy kind of boy, who just loves to make my Pooch parents and any other humans happy.
I'm never not hungry, if you left a 10kg bag of my favourite Pooch & Mutt dog food, I cam promise you I could eat it all.
Play time is all the time for me, and I love to learn new things, my most recent new trick is how to do a spin and then roll over. I love the ladies and I think I'm a real ladies man, but at the moment I don't have a girlfriend to look after.
Parson was born with a small elbow dysplasia issue on one of his front legs which as we know can be a very common issue within Labradors. So the food we wanted to give Parson had to support his joint issue so he can live a great and active life.
Parson takes the Joint Supplements daily which have been a true help in reducing any issues for him, one of the main reasons we give them to him are that they are packed with the key ingredient Glucosamine, which is what his, and the Pooch & Mutt vet recommended. We also give him a small amount of Salmon oil on top of his dry food, which is full of Omega 3 and can be a great support in improving and maintaining good joints.
For his food, we feed him Health & Digestion dry food due to him not doing well with higher fat percentage foods, along with either the Chicken, Pumpkin & Pea or Fish, Potato and Pea wet food as a topper.
