Some dogs, like humans, can be sensitive to wheat/ wheat gluten. This is why we have created a Wonderfully Wheat Free dog food range, which is completely free of wheat and wheat gluten as well as our Laughing Dog Naturally 5 range of dog food, which is a special limited ingredient range of completes and and is also free of wheat and wheat gluten too.
In addition to being hypoallergenic, our four-legged friends will also discover that our wheat free dog food recipes are single species and are made using barley straight from our farm in Lincolnshire. Our Gloriously Grain Free dog range of completes and treats are also free of wheat as well as other grains like rice, oats and barley.
Why do you have an oven-baked range of dog food?
Not all of our dog food ranges are oven-baked, but our Wonderfully Wheat Free and Gloriously Grain Free dog food ranges are naturally oven-baked. Not only does this create a naturally delicious smell and taste (just like when you bake at home), we believe that 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 makes our kibbles extra crunchy and crisp too, which helps to slow down fast eaters and helps keep breath fresh too!
Why do you have a limited ingredient dog food range?
We know that clean labels are really important to pet parents and this is why we created a special wheat free range of completes, Naturally 5, which are made with just 5 simple and nourishing ingredients. Every ingredient works hard to ensure for a clear benefit, creating a complete and balanced recipe that ensures for healthy digestion, immunity, joints, teeth and bones.
We believe that natural is best
We never add anything artificial and firmly believe that natural is best. Our passion is to help keep dogs 100% dog happy and we believe the only way to do this is through simple, nutritious recipes made with wholesome and naturally sourced ingredients.
Alongside our Naturally 5 Chicken, Lamb and Beef complete dog food recipes, and our Wonderfully Wheat Free Baked Lamb, Chicken and Salmon complete dog food recipes, we have tasty wheat free dog treats to enjoy too - joint care, dental and cheesy (our cheesy treats are even made with Lincolnshire cheese!). Our grain free range of dog treats (white fish, morning, noon and night) are also made with no added wheat or wheat gluten.
All dogs can enjoy our naturally delicious and wholesome dog foods - even those without a need for wheat free diets.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.
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.
