I focussed on Wagg Worker because it's outstanding value due to it's Tax free status.

Dog food is generally stocked only in the large B&Q warehouse stores.

Buy it on a Wednesday with a Diamond Card & 60+ friend/relative tagging along and you get a further 10% off making it £7.11!

Supermarkets ordinarily charge ~£9.90 for this.

This is a "working" dog food so will have quite an high carb content and also high calorific value. It is designed for working dogs (farm dogs etc) that are on the go all the time, not your average pet that gets a half hour walk round the local park once a day.

If you have a pampered domesticated pooch this is not the food for it but there are others in the range with 20% off that would be a better proposition. If you need to manage animal weight or hyperactivity issues it would be much better to get a more bulked out less calorific feed. Also, if you are changing dog food it's best if you mix the last feed and the new feed for a few days rather than suddenly change so that they get used to the new stuff gradually.

Voted hot as cheap enough but go with Arden Grange for quality......

True enough, though i'd have hoped that was evident from the product name =)

I feel sorry for dogs that get only 30 minutes a day of exercise.
No doubt such animals will be as unfit as their owner.

Not all dogs are able to exercise for long periods.

Oue Westie is 14 years old and if I took her for a 30min walk a day it would be cruel.

When she was younger it was different.

Dunno if you are correct.
IMHO, the "Working" part of the title is there to give it some justification for being VAT free.
Ours gets "Burns" working dog food - no nutritional difference whatsoever between this and the ordinary stuff.

Think you might be right, according to Wagg website, Working food only contains 1% more protein than the regular food!

It's not protein that will make the dog fat!!!

Working dog foods are designed, strange as this may seem for some to grasp, for people to feed to working dogs. They have a higher calorific value mostly due to additional (often low grade) fats and oils.

I guess it is the ultimate money saving solution: buy the wrong (but cheaper) food for your dog, make you dog obese and watch it die. That way you won't be paying for dog food for too long.

"Burns Active Dog" has 15% oil content. Ordinary feeds from Burns like Lamb & Rice or Fish and Rice have 7.5%. So you where right in the first place; you don't know.

Why do these threads ALWAYS have to turn into a debate? The Op didn't post to ask people whether they should buy this food for their pet, they were simply pointing out a good deal - correct me if i'm wrong but isnt that what this site is for?

I don't mind reading people's comments and a bit of friendly banter, but when people start to get defensive it gets a bit tiresome. Either you like the deal or you don't simple as that!

Voting HOT btw.

Are all TVs the same? All cars? All clothes? All PCs? etc.

The point of HUKD is to share information. Some people give great advice about technology products, or share knowledge about something they already own thereby helping others to make a decision to buy or not.

This debate has quite usefully kicked off because some people think that all dog food is the same!!! That may sound really stupid to most responsible pet owners but judging by some of the posts it appears to be true.

In my experience of owning dogs for most of my life I can share my knowledge that a dog's diet has a significant effect on its well-being so feeding it a high calorie diet when it doesn't need one is a really bad idea.

It's the sarcastic comments I can't stand - everyone is entitled to an opinion. People get so bloody shirty.
Keep it friendly guys!

If that is aimed at me I apologise. The thing is it is really upsetting when people don't look after animals properly. It doesn't take much to keep a dog but some people still don't get the basics right. I used to live next door to a family who had an Alsation and a Labrador. Both dogs bred for work, both capable of being very active most of their life, and they never, never took them for a walk. I asked why once and they said "dogs don't need walking"! They honestly believed that (but they were pretty thick). They had a big garden but wouldn't let the dogs into it because they trampled their flowers. So the dogs lived out their lives on a small concrete patio where they would bark and chew and cr*p (which they never cleared up).

The laws on animal cruelty simply don't cover this. And I don't believe we need to legislate for everything anyway; instead we should try to share knowledge and educate. That's one of the things that happens on HUKD: We don't just vote for the cheapest thing, we share our experiences and knowledge about the item in the deal.

bigsky - you really are angry aren't you. :roll:
You are also quite a few other things!

This is an extract from HM Revenue & Customs:

Animals and animal food
HMRC Reference:Notice 701/15 (March 2002)

6.4 Food for working dogs
A product which is claimed as being suitable for all breeds, size and age of dog is standard-rated.

If a specially formulated food is held out for sale exclusively for working dogs it will come within the scope of the VAT relief – unless it is biscuit or meal.


Burns Alert (their working dog food), does indeed as you yourself point out have a 7.5% oil content.

Anyone reading these two FACTS can see that your comments on my post are ridiculous.
Next time get your facts right before you start shouting the odds.
No need at all for your aggressive tone.

Ahem. Anyone who has worked with dogs all their life would have probably heard of Burns Active - that is their working dog food. It has a 15% oil content.

What you are feeding your dog is a relatively new product - I hadn't actually heard of it before. I have checked the website and the manufacturer describes it as a "behavioural feed" designed to keep dogs calm. Quite possibly designed to extract more money from dog owners too :whistling:

Anyway the make up of "Burns Canine Alert" is certainly not anywhere near as calorific as a working dog feed. It strikes me it's just a bit of creative product development on the part of Mr Burns.

The games dog food manufacturers wish to play with HMRC are of no concern to me. What does bother me is people mistreating their dogs. I am pleased to say you are not going to do any harm with Canine Alert as long as the portions are controlled and the dog has a normal healthy lifestyle. But that's because it is not designed for dogs that do a full day of physical work.

Unfortunately you seem a bit confused. You said: "Ours gets "Burns" working dog food - no nutritional difference whatsoever between this and the ordinary stuff". But what you meant was "Ours gets Burns Canine Alert which is specially formulated for dogs that don't do physical activity all day but need to be alert like guide dogs".

You are not actually feeding a proper working dog food to your dog. What you have posted only risks confusing people, and let's face it, you are pretty confused about what you are doing yourself.

Forget it - you are either a troll or deliberately avoiding my point. A working dog food is VAT free.
Going now - bored with your penchant for obfuscation. I bow to yours being the one true definitive opinion!

My apologies, I was vague - I should rephrase.

I feel sorry for dogs that get too little daily exercise, in particular young & active dogs.

Our dog has an extremely active lifestyle(avg. 4+hr/day), so have no problem using a small amount of this dried dog food as a supplement to a can of wet dog food per day.

I appreciate that overfeeding is a common problem with dogs and I would hate for this deal to be a catalyst for bargain hunters to begin feeding inappropriate food to their pet.
So perhaps common sense should rule; don't feed large quantities and/or calorific foods to your dog if it is overweight. (obviously key to this, is that you check your pet's weight frequently in the first place!)

Sorry to go back on track but what other dog foods do B & Q sell as I didn't realise they did sell dog food
