Dog Food & Accessories

Howard Haynes - Ireland's only certified canine nutritionist

Leading Dog Nutrition Experts in Western Ireland

Along with running a dog daycare centre in Galway for 12 years, we have over a decade of experience in dog nutrition, analysing and selling premium and super premium dog food for an extremely competitive price. Our company is the first in Western Ireland to specialise in the field of dog nutrition and aim to improve the quality of food given to dogs throughout the country.


Unlike the products found on supermarket shelves, which tend to significantly lack nutritional value, the dog food we provide is wheat and gluten free, aiding digestion and growth, with high levels of protein and vegetables. We only ever use dehydrated, uncooked dog food, as this is far better for your dog’s health.


Keep reading below learn more about the specific dog foods and accessories supplied by our dog daycare centre in Galway. These foods are not just extremely healthy for your dog but also remarkably cost-effective. In fact, the Bluegrass brand that we carry is the least expensive food on the Irish market, starting at only €19.95 for 15kg. 

Dog Foods

Natures Menu

The best possible food you can feed your dog. It is known by top breeders as Biologically Appropriate Raw Food (BARF) and is less expensive than most of the so-called top brands. The product is excellent for hair regrowth, skin allergies, intestinal issues, sensitive stomachs, and targets water retention, eradicates bowel or anal gland irritation, and clears blocked tear ducts, which can cause issues for small dogs. The absorption rate is exceptionally high, meaning your dog leaves less excrement. Best of all, even the fussiest dogs love it!

Orijen and Acana

Known as super premium foods, Orijen and Acana offer the best dry foods available worldwide. Aside from a raw diet, this is the highest quality of food you can feed your dog. The crunch of the nut helps to maintain your dog’s teeth, and the food contains between 50% and 85% meat, as opposed to the top premium brands, which contain around 24% to 26%. The rest of the content is made up of fruits, vegetables, and botanicals, including lavender flowers. They are both made by the same Canadian company, Champion Pet Foods, who are renowned world leaders in dog and cat food manufacture. Due to such high protein levels, you only need to give your dog half of what you would normally give when using supermarket dog food, thereby saving you money and ensuring your dog receives optimal nutrition. It also puts less strain on your dog’s digestive system and has a higher absorption rate.

Arden Grange

The highest quality premium dog food on the Irish market. Almost all dogs love the flavour of the food, with a wide range of flavours available including lamb, chicken, pork, ocean white fish, potato, salmon, and premium chicken. There are also tailored ranges to suit puppies and older dogs, which have higher and lower protein levels depending on their requirements.

Bluegrass

Bluegrass is an excellent premium dog food. Due to its remarkable price, we call it the Ryanair of dog food. It is an excellent product, with superb protein levels and a perfect ash count, along with being wheat and gluten free. Prices start at €19.95 for 15KG, making it the cheapest dog food on the Irish market, as well as actually being good for your dog!

Flexi Vario

The 'Flexi Vario' range of leads are incredibly practical and fashionable. These leashes extend to a length of five metres and there's a wide range of different contraptions you can attach to them, such as:

  • A multi box which can be used to hold either dog treats or poop bags
  • An LED flash belt so you can see your dog at night
  • A soft stop belt to stop your best friend hurting their neck when they get to the end of the lead
