Some dogs, like humans, can be sensitive to wheat gluten. This is why we have created a Wonderfully Wheat Free dog food range, which is completely free of wheat gluten. In addition to this, our four-legged friends will also discover that our recipes only have one meat protein source and are oven baked using barley, oats and vegetables straight from the farm.
Why do we bake our dog food? Not only does it create a naturally delicious smell and taste (just like when you bake at home), baking is a much gentler and slower way of cooking compared to extrusion which is the way most dog foods are made in the UK. By gently oven baking our food we can better protect the goodness of our naturally wholesome ingredients meaning that nothing additional needs to be added later. Baking our dog food also means that the kibbles are extra crunchy too, which helps to slow down fast eaters and keeps breath fresh too!
We never add anything artificial and firmly believe that natural is best. Our passion is to bake the nation 100% dog happy and we believe the only way to do this is through simple, nutritious recipes made with wholesome ingredients and baked naturally.
Alongside our Wonderfully Wheat Free Lamb, Chicken and Salmon completes, we have three oven baked dog treats to enjoy - joint care, dental and cheesy (our cheesy treats are even made with Lincolnshire cheese!).
All dogs can enjoy our naturally delicious and wholesome dog foods - even those without a need for wheat free diets. Our mission is to make all dogs 100% dog happy!See the range
Some dogs can be allergic or sensitive to wheat gluten in their diet, and this can cause digestion and also skin irritations. We also keep rice and soya away from our mixing bowls to try and prevent anything that would stop your dog being 100% dog happy. Instead we use barley, which is a great source of dietary fibre, and oats which can help to look after cholesterol in dogs.
Yes! The nutritious ingredients and the way we make all our naturally wholesome foods mean that your dog will enjoy our scrumptious oven baked foods even if they can eat wheat!
At Laughing Dog we are completely transparent and hide nothing from our four-legged friends. All our wheat free dog food recipes have a single meat protein source. Single meat source means that all of our meat sources e.g. lamb in the Wonderfully Wheat Free Lamb, is from that one source e.g. lamb. Therefore in any of our single meat source foods you will never find that it has meat from one animal e.g. lamb, and an oil from another e.g. fish. It would only ever be from the same protein source.
We also include plenty of dog happy ingredients. These include goodies like chicory root to help maintain a healthy digestive system, linseed which is a rich source of omega 3 and can help keep skin and coats healthy, and wholesome vegetables like peas and carrots to provide Vitamin A & B. As with all of our hypo-allergenic dog food recipes, you’ll find no added soya or dairy, artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
As with all of our Laughing Dog foods, our Wonderfully Wheat Free completes and dog treats are made on our own farm bakery in rural Lincolnshire.
Yes! We bake all of our Gloriously Grain Free and Wonderfully Wheat Free dog foods. While baking is a much slower and gentler method compared to most conventional high pressure cooking processes of making dog food (extruded dog food, for example), baking is the best way to help keep all the wholesome goodness of our natural ingredients safely locked inside. We carefully grow and source our delicious ingredients from our family farm, so it's important to us to ensure we also take care of them during the cooking process. Unlike most extruded food which is coated with oil to make it more palatable for our canine friends, baked dog food doesn’t need any unpleasant oily coating adding - the baking process simply creates a delicious aroma and taste (just like when you bake at home!). Baked dog food is also known to be gentler on tummies, and creates a uniquely crisp and crunchy kibble, which helps to slow down fast eaters, as well as helping to keep teeth clean and breath fresh too.
We believe that every dog deserves to be dog happy. To love and live life to the full with lots of fun and foody flavour!
I was really impressed with the food. My first reaction was ‘Wow, it actually smells nice!’ as some doggy foods can really whiff and be rather repulsive. Sometimes when I’ve tried a new food, the dogs have liked it initially, but then the novelty has worn off. However with the Laughing Dog food my dogs came dashing up to me day after day, tails wagging, ready for their meal. I also liked the company ethos – being a small family business making natural pet food on its own farm appealed to me.
