Oven Baked Goodness
Did you know that we slow bake all of our
delicious Laughing Dog dry food?
Made on our family farm for over three generations...
Here at Laughing Dog food we slow bake our range of dry dog food from start to finish in our family run bakery.
Using only naturally wholesome ingredients that we grow and source ourselves, our bakers carefully bake each batch of Laughing Dog food; ensuring each bag can be traced back to the baker who carefully baked it, the oven in which it was gently baked in and the delicious ingredients that went into the mixing bowl.
As our dry food is slowly oven baked, it helps to protect the natural goodness and taste of our wholesome ingredients, meaning nothing artificial needs to be added later.
Baking our kibbles also creates a uniquely crisp and crunchy texture which helps to slow down fast eaters as well as creating a delicious baked aroma, which we know dogs love.
Our recipes have been created by our nutritionists to include a perfect balance of naturally sourced ingredients such as our own farm-grown oats and barley, as well as other wholesome goodies like peas, carrots and linseed, as well as potatoes and sweet potato for dogs looking for a grain free dog food, as well as a careful balance of all the vitamins and minerals your four-legged friend needs to help them live life to the full.
Even if you have the fussiest eater of them all, we guarantee a wagging tail before supper and an empty bowl to finish.
Laughing Dog food is enjoyed by all dogs looking for delicious and nutritious wholesome goodness – even the fussiest of dogs woof down our carefully baked creations!
Nearly all of the other dry dog foods available in the UK are cooked in the more conventional way using a process called extrusion. This means cooking foods at a very high pressure and speed; it’s a less expensive way of cooking and has been around since the 1950s. However, here at Laughing Dog we firmly believe that baking our dog food is better than extruding it…
As a result of the extrusion process, some vitamins and proteins in the initial ingredients can become denatured and lost during cooking (some recent case studies show that as much as a 40% loss in vitamins in the original ingredients is average in extruded dog foods). Baking is really different…
The main reason why we believe that baked is better is because the biscuit dough is cooked over a longer, slower period of time. This means we can better protect the natural goodness and deliciousness of our wholesome ingredients; we take so much care growing and selecting our natural ingredients, we don’t want any of the lovely taste or wholesome nutrition lost along the way.
It also means we don’t need to add anything artificial at the end of the process to make it taste and smell good (at the end of the extrusion process an oily coating has to be sprayed on to the food to make it palatable for our four-legged friends).
Slow baking our dog food means that it’s a lot kinder and gentler on our four-legged friends’ tummies. We believe that our baked foods don’t swell or bloat in the stomach like extruded food sometimes can.
As our Laughing Dog kibbles are baked (just like you would cook a biscuit in your oven at home, although our ovens are a little bigger!), it makes the end product a completely different mouth feel and taste compared to other dog foods. Dogs love its very crisp and crunchy texture, which also helps to keep teeth clean and breath fresh! So even if you have the fussiest eater of them all, we guarantee a wagging tail before supper and an empty bowl to finish.
Because our baked kibbles are so nutrient dense, you may find that you can feed less.
We have been baking our Laughing Dog food for three generations on our family farm – our dad Ted Grant firmly believed that slow baking dog food was the very best way to ensure for delicious and nutritious golden nuggets.
And with generations of dogs already baked happy, our bakers certainly won’t be hanging up their aprons any time soon…
