SMALL CHANGE, BIG DIFFERENCE.
Here at Calm Down Dawg we believe in feeding raw. Not only do we know it has a big behavioural effect on dogs, but by taking our four legged friends back to their natural state, it also comes with a long list of health improvements and an impact to vet's bills too! For a full list of the benefits associated to feeding raw, take a look at our Dog's Diet page.
Contrary to popular belief, feeding raw food is not only applicable to dogs, as author Tom Lonsdale writes, it's also advised for cats and ferrets too.
So why not take a look at our selection of raw food products below to see what would suit you. We also stock a wide range of air dried dog treats, such as Pigs Trotters, Beef Jerky, Iberian Pigs Ears and many more.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do you introduce raw food to dogs?
It’s really simple, however it does vary with some breeds and ages of dogs so please contact us to talk through your dog’s individual needs, we also have a PDF we will send you that details everything you need to know about feeding raw.
How do you thaw raw dog food?
For 24 hours in a fridge. Feel free to cover the raw food or keep it safe in a food container such as a Tupperware box. Don’t worry if the food is still slightly frozen because your dogs gut can easily handle this. In fact, we feed frozen bones and carcasses straight out of the freezer all the time in the summer because they’re basically doggy ice lollies!
Can you feed uncooked chicken to dogs?
Yes you can! Make sure the raw food you feed is DEFRA approved because this means that it’s been through all the checks needed to ensure your dog is eating ‘safe’ meat. When a dog is raw fed for a few months they build up a healthy gut, able to deal with rotting meat and harmful bacteria. The real risk is with us, so make sure you treat/handle the raw food just like you would raw human food and clean up after yourself, wash their bowl after each meal and wash their water bowl out regularly, it really shouldn’t be any more complicated than this.
Is it safe to feed raw meat to puppies?
Absolutely! The sooner the better! As soon as they stop taking their mother’s milk at 4-5 weeks old they’re ready for their natural diet of raw food. Most people start on minced food which is fine however they could even take on a chicken carcass at this age.
