I’m so excited that the website is live! I hope you all like it!
I thought long and hard about what my first blog post should be about and whilst I have many doggy subjects in my head, it felt like that the first blog post should be about my little company, Chomp & Chew. So let me tell you why I’ve set it up and what it stands for.
I’ve always been a huge animal lover and as a kid I loved spending time at my grandparents’ house as they had lots and lots of animals. Those summer days were filled with feeding little chicks, getting carrots and greens for the bunnies, playing with the dogs, eating strawberries in the garden, going for long walks – I loved it all!
Then life got busy and it was years before I had my first two dogs – Roxy and Luke. Luke is still with us and now we also have a crazy, fun-loving, very sweet Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy, Sparky (check out the About page for more on our history).
Before bringing Sparky home I spent endless hours, days, weeks researching dog food, treats, toys, beds – everything. I found it quite frustrating and time-consuming. When I found a dog food that I was happy to feed her, they either had nothing or very little in terms of treats, never mind toys! Every time I wanted a different product, I had to do more and more research as companies sold only one or two products other than the big names in the market. Those big marketplaces had everything a new dog owner could ask for, but I knew from my research and studies that even though they advertised their food as ‘natural’ it was not even close to it!
Having recently qualified as a nutritionist, I now know what good food looks like and can easily read labels and recognise the ingredients that are just fillers, unnecessary additives, or just plain ’baddies’ for our dogs.
I don’t know about you, but I value convenience as I’m always busy, so I want to get all of my dog supplies from under one roof. Hence, I’ve decided to set up Chomp & Chew to be that shop. I want to make it easier for dog-parents to find 100% natural, delicious food and treats free of chemicals and mysterious, unnecessary ingredients, as well as toys, dental & grooming products and lots more.
I will be using my extensive knowledge of nutrition to advise you on all matters relating to diet & food (and other doggy-related matters) so that you can provide your loyal, loving doggy with the best, wholesome, nutritious meals and treats. I will be sharing my knowledge in blog articles on the website as well as tips on Instagram (check out @chompandchewuk).
I want to make it fun for all of us, so there will be a monthly competition (Dog of The Month) that you can all take part in and win a bag of natural goodies for your pooch.
The Loyalty Scheme offers many ways to collect points, which will help you save money! It also comes with additional perks and offers and of course as a loyal customer you can influence the shape of the company, the products we sell and the services we offer.
I hope you will like the website and the products on offer. Should there be any initial problems or mistakes, please forgive me, I’m only human and trying to do my best.
If there’s anything specific you would like me to cover in future blog articles, please let me know. I’d love to hear your thoughts on anything I’ve mentioned. Similarly, if you have any questions, please drop us a line.
