Millies Wolfheart is a small family run business in the Yorkshire Dales Established in 2011.
Millies Wolfheart recipes are not off the shelf products, they are our own bespoke recipes.
After over 20 years of owning large breed working dogs with delicate tummies and testing the majority of complete foods in the market place without much success. Millies Wolfheart was created by Mark and June with great emphasis on producing a range of healthy and completely gluten and grain free working and sporting dog foods.
Millies Wolfheart discovered throughout our research that most dog food products available contained a high proportion of plant proteins and/or did not specify the protein source and overall had very little in the way of meat and after researching ingredients and their benefits for a good few years, we launched Millies first recipe in September 2012.
It soon became apparent that no one dog food is suitable for all thus subsequently we went several steps further and began to produce a range of bespoke recipes that met Millies Wolfhearts high standards and requirements knowing as our range increased there would be more and more happy dog owners.
We at Millies feel it is important not only to know our ingredients but to understand them and what impact those ingredients have on dogs which is why we are very particular on what goes into our recipes.
While more emphasis is now being made to the quality of protein in dog food which is great news for our four legged friends, understanding of how much should be used is still in its infancy but our research is building quite quickly and this has allowed us to grow our range with a brisk pace.
Millies believes that while protein content is extremely important its source is the key. Here at Millies we do not use Chicken or eggs as we feel these are steadily becoming an intolerance issue for many dogs and unfortunately for the dogs chicken is used in almost all other dog foods in one form or another and this has to change, but as chicken is cheaper than potato in dog food it’s no wonder why companies place profit over ethics or indeed health.
With further recipes coming along over the next year Millies Wolfheart is now recognised as one of the top rated British working and sporting dog food producers.
