Award-winning bespoke dog food from the Yorkshire Dales

MILLIES WOLFHEART IS a name you should know when it comes to dog food. They have established themselves as one of the leading brands for working and sporting dog food in the UK, and it is easy to see why when you take a moment to look at their extensive range of premium quality products.

Millies Wolfheart is not afraid to break the mould and to innovate when it comes to developing foods and their ethos is simple: no compromise on quality. The company’s motto – to provide nothing but the best quality nutrition for dogs – has seen them achieve multiple awards. Their products have now been voted ‘Britain’s best dog food’ for three consecutive years.

Designing their foods based on the activity levels and intolerances a dog may have means they are bucking the trend of simply marketing foods aimed at the age of the dog. Millies Wolfheart ensure that each recipe is suitable for all life-stages and with a team of highly-qualified nutritionists on site it’s easy for a customer to get advice and find which of the range is
best suited to the needs of their dog.

As a company they are focused on being open and honest about ingredients and they take pride in what they have to offer. Their passion for education, dispelling the common myths about dog food and for quality without compromise have helped this brand become simply the best a dog can get.

Dry, protective and comfortable boots

THE HARRIS DRYBOOT is the only 100% guaranteed waterproof, multi-purpose, lace-up boot available in the UK. The first choice for many farmers, walkers, gardeners, anglers and field sports enthusiasts, it’s ideal for those who need a comfortable, reliable, waterproof boot but prefer not to wear a knee-length welly.

In production for over 60 years, the design, construction, manufacturing process, and materials used have changed little in that time – a real testament to its success.

Here’s why:

  • Top quality natural rubber construction is impervious to damage from bramble or rough undergrowth.
  • Steel shank built into the non-slip sole adds strength and protection for rough terrain walking or heavy digging.
  • Generous sizing and deep gusset provides easy access.
  • Lined throughout with cotton/jersey fabric which helps to prevent the foot sweating – a common problem with wellies.
  • Thick padding around the ankle area makes it extremely comfortable and prevents chafing or ankle rub.
  • Fully washable and quick drying.
