We decided as a family that we would like to get a dog. We spent a lot of time researching about different breeds and all the responsibilities that come with owning a dog.
We eventually settled on wanting a Hungarian Vizsla. We were then lucky enough to find a registered breeder with a pregnant bitch, who after meeting us on several occasions agreed that we could have one of her puppy’s once they were born.
We were told that the puppy’s would be fed on a good quality dog food, however, with that good quality dog food came a very high price. We were torn. We wanted to feed our puppy on good quality food, but didn’t want to have to pay through the nose for it.
With the help of qualified nutritionists, we began to research and look in to the composition and content of the different dog foods available on the market to us. To say we were shocked is an understatement! We were horrified to learn about just how little meat content is in the majority of well known brands of dog food out there!
It was at this point that one of our nutritionists suggested that we make our own dog food, and after much research and planning, Harrison Drake pet food limited was formed and we launched our first recipes.
