Use our food calculator for a guide on how much to feed your dog.
Feed as part of a balanced diet. Adult dogs should consume 2-3% of their ideal body weight per day and Just Tripe can form a portion of this. Every working dog is different. Adjust portions accordingly. Wash your hands, utensils and surfaces after handling any raw meat.
To give you an idea of portion size, Dexter is an adult male Boxer, weighing 26kgs. We feed him 500gr per day which is a tiny bit under 2% but it works for him as he does have some treats during the day as well. On the other hand, Maisie is a 2 year old female Boxer, weighing 22 kgs and we feed her the same as Dexter. This is because she is a high energy girl who never walks if she can run, so she needs a bit more food every day. So, use the above percentages as a guide and adjust for your dog, afterall, no-one knows them like you do.
ReviewsWe tested the AKC Calming Coat on 3 separate occasions that usually stress out Charlie –
1.Fireworks Night – First night without the coat and our usually cuddle free Schnauzer was soon shaking on the sofa snuggled up as close as possible to us. The next day our coat arrived! It was very quick and easy to put on and was a lovely soft stretchy material. Soon enough the fireworks started – now I should say I was not expecting a miraculous change but in fact that is what we got. Charlie certainly heard the Fireworks but instead of jumping on to us and shaking he was aware and alert to them but not a nervous wreck
2.Family party with 26 visitors in the house including 6 rowdy teenagers and people moving without telling Charlie first! Charlie wore his coat all day and was much calmer and “normal”. He still didn’t want to be petted by everyone but was happy to welcome them into his house and let them stay!
3.Car journey –Charlie travels in the car everyday usually for about an hour. He travels in the boot but is never very relaxed. He paces up and down the boot. We tried him in his calming coat and it did seem to make a difference – not as much as the Fireworks or Visitors but certainly an improvement.

Will my order arrive in one go?
Dogs About Town seeks out smaller, niche suppliers to bring you a collection of doggy goodies that's a little bit different from the norm. Because of this, when you order, you might choose goods from several different suppliers and that will mean that your order won't arrive in one package. For example, if you buy a lounge bed, nose-it toy and a chill pad, you'll be supporting 3 different small manufacturers and you'll receive 3 packages. Now, we know, this might seem a bit odd at first, but we hope you'll agree that it's worth it to find something just that little bit different and be able to support some of the smaller but beautifully formed suppliers and manufacturers.

A Quick Word About Packaging:
The world's resources are precious, so whenever we can, we like to reuse packaging that we get sent. Things like those polystyrene chips, shredded paper or bubble wrap. We also try to choose the most environmentally cardboard boxes we can and this means that sometimes, you'll get a box that looks too big for it's contents. But rest assured, we've done our homework and picked the best option we can, plus any packing that we use to fill the box is likely to be on its second use. Phew.
Your dog’s yummy raw food will arrive frozen and will be sent straight to your door by courier – no more lugging heavy sacks or tins back from the shops, yey!
Between Monday – Thursday, if you order before 1pm, your food will arrive the next day. Orders placed after 1pm on Thursday and before 1pm on Monday will arrive on the Tuesday.
If you are not going to be in when your order arrives, please let us know where we can leave it. It is packed so that it will stay frozen for some time after delivery so just make sure you pop it straight in the freezer when you get home.
The minimum order is 6kgs which is about 1 freezer basket full in an average freezer and approximately 2 weeks worth of food for a 20kgs dog. If you’re not sure how much to order, call us free on 0800 644 4662, or use our Portions Calculator.
