JH (West Yorkshire)
A couple of months ago I mailed you re our working bred lab puppy that had a bout of campylo bacter and I was struggling to find a food subsequent to that where she did not have loose stools 10+ times a day. You sent some free sample puppy foods and of the three I decided to go with Little Champ (she liked all three by the way). Well, she really has come on in leaps and bounds ever since (quite literally). She is developing into a really stunning athletic dog with a perfect coat and lots of energy. Her stools are as they should be and we are delighted with your products which not only are perfect but they are affordable and no nonsense. She will progress on to (adult) Champ in due course. I am recommending CSJ to anyone that will listen!
Just to let you know that our puppies have taken to your products like ducks to water, thank you so much for sending the samples.
I tried to ascertain which of the samples they preferred but our 4 mth puppy loves everything! and is currently enjoying the little champ. Our 11 month puppy seemed to show a preference for the complete tripe but it was a neglible preference. He is thriving on sooper dooper champ with complete tripe mixed in and it shows in his general presentation and coat. I will have no hesitation in using any of your products for our puppies, it is a joy to see them tucking in (especially the older one).
The stockist of your products (Diva Dogs of Doncaster) has also been very helpful. It is not a chore for us to drive the short journey to buy your food as it has been such a successful resource for our puppies.
Again many grateful thanks to you and your company, We are so delighted to have discovered you and I have been recommending you highly to other dog owners.
Sandra Field and Milo the Pointer Puppy
He was thin and always hungry because I think he wasn’t getting any good nutrition as everything was going straight through him. He was forever scavenging! CSJ were very helpful and sent me samples, I found one that worked (Salmon based CP21) and anyone who has a puppy with loose stools will know it was such a relief to get log poos! I am so glad I found them and won’t be changing.
We have just started feeding That'll do to our dogs. The change in them is amazing. They suddenly have so much energy and stamina and they absolutely LOVE it. We have 2 whippets, 2 collies and an elderly westie on it. The westie is 12 and has been a bit slow recently. He is now really perky and keeps up with my horse on long rides.The collies are working much better and the whippets who are still growing are full of energy. All their coats shine. I only wish I could feed it to my racing whippet bitch, but she has a meat/chicken allergy. I feed her on your 'fit n fast'.
Mrs Leigh Loftus
I just thought I would send a quick email to say thank you for the samples you sent and let you know how we got on. As advised I let my 5 month border collie bitch choose which she fancied to eat and she seemed to like them all but kept going back to complete tripe so we tried that first. Although I was very careful introducing it because of her stomach issues she seemed fine straight away and enjoyed it completely finishing it all and licking her bowl which she doesn't tend too do. I also got some lamb n rice wgf from your stockist Tracey in Cardiff and that was also very popular.
Although still early days the change already has been remarkable, finally her poops are normal, less smelly and easy to clean up. This is amazing as she has had so many issues with loose stools and scratching it was a huge worry for us, let alone cost of trying all the other foods on the market like jwb and wainwrights which didn't suit her. Plus she isn't so windy (she did used to clear the room before). I am also using your heal and resist herbs which goes down well and both my collies love your poppets which I use as rewards and dem bones. We are now switching our 3 yr old collie onto it too.
Her coat is now getting a lush shine and her ears and eyes seem cleaner too, plus it's half the price of a lot of other foods on the market. Needless to say we are very impressed.
Please feel free to use this in testimonials as I found it helped reading others views when researching your products. Thank you so much Leigh, Meggy and Fflur.

Ever since having my Pointer X at 10 weeks old He has always had very loose stools, I have tried different puppy foods, all of them good makes, without solving this problem. He was thin and always hungry because I think he wasn’t getting any good nutrition as everything was going straight through him. He was forever scavenging! I found CSJ website as I was trying to find a food that worked. Nicki at CSJ was very helpful and sent me some samples, I found one that worked and anyone who has a puppy with loose stools will know it was such a relief to get log poos! They don’t spend on fancy packaging or advertising but I think sell via recommendations. I am so glad I found them and won’t be changing.
Hi Ceri, I just wanted to leave you a testimonial. Keira, my red and white 9year old bitch is now on Old Champ and thriving on it. Weight issue resolved and her coat looks fabulous. Beth, 2.5 yr old Tri-colour whom I hope to start trialing later this year is on Herbie Nuts and loves them and her coat also looks fabulous and weight completely under control. protein level seems about right for both dogs and I am a very, very satisfied customer. The help and advice you gave on changing Keira's food was "spot on" and much appreciated. For the occasional treat/reward they have your tiny bone shaped biscuits and they are very well received! Truly excellent food and all-round service. Many thanks, Dudley
Our 3 year old lab has had skin problems/allergies from about 6 months of age. This resulted in him scratching a lot, loosing a lot of hair and his skin becoming affected and needing antibiotics. Over the last 2 years we’ve tried a range of treatments including de-sensitisation through weekly injections (very expensive and no obvious benefits), Atopica (it worked but is extremely expensive and not a long term solution), and changing his diet including cod liver oil supplements (no obvious changes). Latterly he has been on antihistamines and low dose steroids topped up with Atopica during the worst months (spring and summer). We recently introduced CSJ food (CP21 Salmon after discussing the problem with Ceri) and within a couple of weeks we’ve noticed a huge difference. His hair is now glossy, soft and full (previously it was very dry and brittle) and we’ve reduced his Atopica medication down to one every 2 weeks on average (previously on one every 2 days). The only change we’ve made is his diet and given it’s the middle of summer with high pollen and grass I can only attribute the changes to the food. I hoped the food would help but really didn’t expect such a big change in such a short amount of time. Based on my experience I would really recommend CSJ foods. The advice I received was really helpful and the product has far exceeded my expectations.
Mark & Nigel
Just to let any potential customers know that your excellent food isn't just perfect for working dogs. We have a family of 7 pedigree Chihuahuas, a breed renowned for fussy eating habits. They have all been on your Champ range for what must be coming up to 2 years and they adore it. More than that, compared to other chihuahuas we regularly see, ours have the shiniest softest coat......and thankfully on this product never have any stomach problems whatsoever. The other great thing about this range is the small kibble size. So CSJ is definitely a brand we recommend for even small/toy breed dogs. Many thanks.
My boxer dog Ruby has now been using the CP Xtra food and the herbs "Hold it" for nearly 2 years. Ruby was diagnosed with Kidney failure put on a drip and only given a few weeks to live. She was prescribed incurin (for leaking bladder) and metacam for her joints. I researched and came accross your site and tried the herbs for both her joints and bladder. Ruby could not go through the night without accidents if not on the medicine from the vets, but now she is no longer on any prescribed medicines and only on the herbs and is going strong. She has no accidents and her joints are doing ok considering she is over 10 and a big girl. So thank you for your help and keeping my dog happy and going, as again I have had another christmas with her which i did not expect.
Thank you so much for all your help and advice for our rescue Lab x Collie Bryn, he is now well on the way to becoming a fit and healthy dog. Your entire service from initial advice emails, free samples to then ordering online and receiving the chosen dog food was seamless – you don’t find many companies nowadays that offer such great service, but CSJ should definitely win an award for theirs!
Now to the products themselves …. Bryn’s first taste was from the samples you kindly sent and he chose the Natural Champ! as his favourite. Now we have a lovely big 15kg bag of it, both him and I are very happy. With other foods we have tried him on he has been fairly picky, with going off one brand entirely. He ABSOLUTELY loves Natural Champ!....he wolfs it down! The bowl is always licked clean and no mere morsels are left what so ever! The value is totally exceptional, looking at what other so-called premium brands charge - its an outrage they get away with it!
What more can I say – great service, fantastic product (with transparency of what ingredients actually goes into it – really important for me, as you are what you eat!), amazing value.
I am recommending your products to everyone I know who has a dog and now I have joined a local agility club I will telling them all too! Well done and I wish you even greater success in the future!
Kate Ramsden, Liskeard
Just to say thank you to Ceri and to my stockist for the great advice. My older dogs have always been fed on Champ but my four and a half month old Lab puppy was initially put onto a puppy food with a higher protein content. This did not suit him and I was concerned at the high level of protein and so asked for help and advice. He has now been on adult Champ for five weeks , his weight gain is steady and good, his black coat gleams, his tummy is settled and in the words of our Vet, he looks smashing! He is gaining weight at around 2 kilos per week , has stamina but is not hyperactive, is a steady young lad with a fantastic temperament, easy to train, thank you again.
Our seventeen month old border collie suffered a couple of bouts of colitis with two vet visits and we could not find a feed to suit her. Contacted Ceri who suggested the herbs Resist and Heal with fish and rice for forty eight hours. We have very much appreciated Ceri's help and sound advice - the pup has not looked back and is now full of health and happiness - at the moment she is being fed Complete Tripe and half the herbs for a little while longer, I would highly recomend CSJ products - the care and advice taken is second to none. Our local stockist Deena Morgan in Newark is also very helpful and supportive. Best wishes for continued growth and expansion.
Rob Owen and Benji Boyo Bach
Just a quick thank you for the sample you sent out for Benji-Boyo-Bach, that was unexpected and very kind of you!. Just before I received your pack, I visited one of your Stockists last Saturday (Felindre, Swansea, which is not very far from me), and I purchased 15kg of Champ to try. B-B-B loves it! He absolutely wolfs it down and there is a noticable reduction in his death breath practically immediately! I will try the samples you have kindly sent over the next few days. Although the stockist I visited nearby only stocks 'Champ', One of your stockists in Tumble is not far from our vets and your stockist in Rhiwbina is down the road from my place of work so I am lucky to have a choice of locations to purchase from. I will keep you posted on Benji Boyo Bach's progress and let you know how we get on. I will also be recommending CSJ to friends and aquainences, as I am really impressed with the personal response to my query and already confident your products are of better quality than many alternatives available. Thank you very much again,
Kindest regards, Rob Owen and Benji Boyo Bach x

Just wanted to add my voice to the testimonials - we've had Milo since November 2010 and were advised by Wiccaweys to feed him your Champ adult dog food. He loves the food and his coat is so shiny and healthy - I've lost count of the number of people who have admired him and commented on his shiny coat.
Jackie Jones, Wagtail Walks
I have a collie and a spaniel collie cross, and feed them both on CSJ Natural Champ. They are both thriving on it, fit and strong with glossy coats. I receive many compliments from people that meet my boys on their condition. As a professional Dog Walker I always recommend CSJ to all my clients, and many are now regular customers themselves and pass the word on to others. I would not feed my boys on any other food.
Karen and Marcus Barker-Moore
Since my border collie (now aged 15 months) was a puppy we have lots of problems with tummy upsets,we tried lots of different food types and then he was diagnosed with colitis and was on Canin dry vet food (expensive!). We contacted CSJ for some samples and since then have been in contact with Caroline Fraser and Keith Varney (our local distributors) who have been incredibly helpful. I cannot praise them enough. We now feed him Salmon fit and fast and have never looked back. He is gaining/maintaining his weight, has a glossy coat and an appetite. I wanted to let you know who thrilled we are. Thank you.
The Dog Groomer, Ceiriog Valley
I never recommend a product,or use it on a clients dog without first trying it on my own dog/s. I've used both the Skinny Dip shampoo and the Skinny Dip spray for a few weeks now. The dogs smell great, the spray has given a gloss to their coats and more importantly, despite walking in the woods and fields, there's not a flea in sight! It's my preference not to use chemicals on my dogs and to try to use natural products wherever possible. I will be recommending Skinny Dip to my clients.
In November 2010 my 4 yr old bloodhound Henry suffered a torsion, a 180 degree twist of his stomach. Fortunately I got him to the vets in time and he survived the major surgery to put his stomach back in the right position and stitch it in place. After the surgery he was unable to take any wheat or rice so feeding him became a nightmare. He went down to skin and bone and I believed I was going to lose him. We turned a corner around February when I started him on small amounts of Fit N Fast which he tolerated well. Since then we have graduated to a 50/50 mix of Fit n Fast and CP Extra. He will never be able to have his previous two meals a day and will always be on 3+ meals but he is here, he's healthy, and his weight is back to normal. I also give him extra chicken fat on his meals and the combination of feeds and fat have brought him back from the brink. His vet is delighted and I can't thank you enough for the feeds which have facilitated his recovery. Thank you so much.
Hello CSJ! After getting in contact with you a few weeks ago and receiving samples of your food, my dogs chose Natural Champ! as their favourite, and WELL.....what a difference already!!! I rescued my greyhound a year ago and she has never really had a huge appetite and was very underweight, although she is nearly the weight she should be now, she still found eating a chore and never really seemed overly interested in the numerous amounts of food I offered. Since being on CSJ Natural Champ! she is a different dog, bounces around for her meals and always licks the bowl clean. She seems happier in her self and is starting to shine in her coat and eyes. My terrier had flaky, dry skin...and already we have seen a difference in her skin condition and she seems 100% better in herself too!! I cannot thank you enough for the difference you have made in our dogs!! They are so happy and loving life and are thriving off your food! We are VERY impressed!! I've been recommending you to all my doggy friends! So so chuffed and happy, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN OUR DOGGIES HEALTH, HAPPINESS, LIFE, PERSONALITY AND GENERAL WELL BEING!!!!
Duncan Sinclair Willis, Mirymoor Gundogs
I just wanted to say a big thank you to CSJ. Brian Sellers has now been in touch and we got on well. I now have all my clients' dogs on CSJ Feeds and all of them are very happy with what they get. Great products and the way in which it has been received by my clients is a tribute to the quality of the food inside the bag, not any fancy graphics on the front! I've just had to order another 30 bags because I can't keep up with demand.
Just wanted to say that since switching my two Rhodesian Ridgebacks onto 'Herbie Nuts' they have dramatically improved in health. Both have improved coat condition, better digestion and are generally fitter. The younger dog, who very easily gets an upset stomach, has not had one instance of illness in the last few months. He was difficult to keep weight on, but now weighs a healthy 45kg. I had tried all the best brands you could buy, but this food beats them all. So happy! Thank you very much for this wonderful food & delivery service. Best ever.
Rachel Owen, Warrington
Many thanks for the samples and letter you sent regarding my overweight dog. The samples went down a storm and we have since ordered 15kg of lamb senior which has been a seemless transition from CSJ Champ. The advice you provided re calm down herbs was also beneficial and we have orderd a tub of that. it seems to have a calming affect already, Doug didnt hear / didnt react to the postman this morning! Once again many thanks, I will be saving up to buy him some ribbies also.
Thanks for your help and advice regarding my 1 year old lab, Buster. After trying the herbs with the lamb and rice, we noticed a small improvement, but we decided to give the fit and fast a try .. as when we fed him fish, following your regime, he improved more. Voila.. problem solved! Since day one on fit and fast, we haven't had a single loose episode. He is in superb condition, hardly sheds at all, and looks like he has been painted with black gloss paint!
I can't recommend this food highly enough, and the service we have had from you has been second to none!
I just wanted to say thank you for all your help, advice and great products. I have spent over a year struggling to keep weight on my very active rescued working sheepdog using a variety of expensive well known brands and numerous supplements from the vets. Not only have none of these worked but my dog didn't like the taste.
From the initial call with recommendations on what to try (it lasted over 30 minutes) and the free samples I have been amazed with CSJ. Barney has now been on CP21 Salmon for nearly 6 months and is a different dog. He has put on and is holding his weight; he no longer has a constantly upset stomach and he loves his food!
We also recently rescued another working sheepdog. Straight away we put her on the same CSJ food and again to dramatic effects. As well as the obvious health and dietary benefits we are constantly being stopped and asked what they are fed, both of their coats are amazing. I have no hesitation recommending CSJ to my friends, many of whom can't get over the improvements in the two dogs, especially when I tell them the cost!
Buster and Stephen B
" Hi Ceri. Just a quick update on Buster our American Bulldog. After receiving your samples of dog food which Buster loved, I started him on CSJ That'll do! which I get from a local stockist Eureka, in Rising Bridge. Buster has developed well, he is fit and healthy with a glossy coat. He now weighs 80 pounds at 20 months old. I feel your food is much better when you compare the ingredients to other foods. I have also been recommending your dog food to friends with dogs and other dog owners i meet. Recently a lady I met out with her Bull Mastiff and a friend at work who has just bought a cocker spaniel said they would be making enquiries, I told them of your website. Thanks Ceri ."
Camelwood Labradors recommend CSJ
I have bred and worked Labrador Retrievers for many years and used many types of working gundog foods. I find CSJ to be the best value and best quality food yet. I would recommend anyone to use it and see how your dogs really progress.

I just wanted to thank you for the fantastic service, my cat biscuits arrived today and Thomas adores them, its great to have the dogs and the cat on a brand I can trust, am now recommending on catchat forum along with the dogs food wherever possible !
Max is so much better!
I contacted you about 3 weeks ago about our dog Max. I was feeding him on JWB but after his first No.2 of the day would carry on going about twenty times with what you thought may be either a food intolerance or infection in the gut (due to his strange sock eating habits!)
You recommended that after a few days rest on rice and fish we try the Heal and Resist herbs, which I have been using alongside your Champ! feed.
I am delighted to say, Max is so much better. Admittedly, we still have the odd hiccup but then if he comes across things when we are out walking they are eaten in a flash! I am really really pleased with the improvement he has made and it is so much easier to clean up after him!
I will definitely be recommending you to fellow dog owners.
Get Over! is fantastic!
Just wanted to let you know how fantastic your product "Get Over" is.
I have a golden retriever who has had very bad hip displacia in both hips for which she has had 2 successful operations. Then she had a bad limp on her left elbow, I was devastated as just spent a fortune getting her hips done only for something else to go wrong. Nothing surgical could be done it was just her bad breeding again,the elbow was inflammed and probably has arthritis even tho she is only 2 years old bless her. Your company and product was recommended to me by a friend.
I purchased "Get Over" and it said on the instructions that it may take 2 or 3 weeks for the herbs to work. Well, let me tell you in our case it took 2 days!!!!! I only need 1 spoonful on her meal once each day and she has not limped since. I cannot believe it, no tablets or vet bills - just sprinkle on these herbs and hey presto!!!
I cannot thank you enough, what a relief after 2 years of vet bills and operations and millions of tablets. She is looking and obviously feeling so good at the moment, her coat is great too.
I have just purchased my second tub and will continue to do so for the rest of her days.
Don't suppose you have got the same sort of thing for humans have you? I could do with some of the magic herbs!!!!!
Carol Hodder & a very well & happy Nala
Dear CSJ team
At the ripe old ages of 11 (ish) and 13 (ish) switching to a new food was no trouble with regards to introducing it slowly (too slowly as far they are concerned!) and Dem Bones are a wonderful incentive for them to not "forget” their recall and training – or even just remind them what good dogs they are really!
Incidentally after today's delivery – my third – the driver asked me about the food and will be telling his daughter all about it for her staffy!
My response was - I now buy a better food at a cheaper price and more conveniently than if I popped down to PaH to buy Chappie/Bonkers/Pedigree!!
Thank you for a good food at an excellent price and brilliant delivery service.

The most expensive food is not always the best - as Byron knows!
One of our dogs went off to his foster home just before Christmas. He was thin when he came in, but we'd got the weight on him and when he was neutered he weighed 24kg. He went off on foster (along with his sack of Natural Champ!) just before Christmas, and came back about 3 weeks ago to meet a potential home.
His foster home stopped off on route to get his second vaccination. In between the foster home leaving the vets and getting to us, our vet nurse Danni phoned to say that Byron was stick thing and weighed just under 17kg! I was shocked and mortified! I promptly cancelled the potential home, wanting to investigate in case he had a medical issue....
When Byron and his foster mum arrived, he was ravonously hungry and immediately raided a bowl of Little Champ! we had down. I questioned his foster home and asked hadn't she noticed!?!?! I was furious!
It turned out she hadn't fed him his CSJ as instructed, but had put him on 'Xxxxx' because her other half thought it would be better for Byron and their dog to be on the same 'better quality' food - obviously because it is so bloody expensive, it must be better!!!! Their dog has also lost weight. I asked her to show me exactly what she was feeding Byron a day, and she showed me - she was sticking to the recommended amounts given on the back. I told her Byron would be having more than that for his breakfast alone here! He's not a greedy pig and would only eat what he wanted. He immediately came back and went onto his CSJ. I'm happy to say, Byron is now back to just under 24kg - we weighed him last night.

Truffle has 9 little Champs!
"Truffle has been fed solely on Champ throughout her pregnancy and like my other whippets had the occasional meal of tripe & chicken wings.
As you can see she had a wonderful litter of 9 healthy puppies and she is in fantastic condition. The puppies are about to be weaned onto soaked Little Champ in about 3 weeks"

Boy am I glad I changed to CSJ!
Hi Carol (Winfrow)
Here is a brief update on the dog food front:
I moved all 5 Australian Shepherds onto CSJ this summer after most of them had bad reactions to 'another' food they were on.
Badger my 7 yr old had IBS so I was very apprehensive about changing his food but put him on the CP21 to start. Boy am I glad I did !! His coat has never been in such good condition and he has actually gained weight. So much so we have had to put him on the Lamb Senior/ Lite. He has been fine on both foods with no tummy upsets.
Cody is my Blue merle boy who actually went a strange 'pinky tinge' when he was on the other food. He now is back to his 'lavender blue' self and is dripping in coat - he even won Limit Dog at NASA's 1st Championship Show & Reserve Best Dog at Working & Pastoral Breeds Champ Show this November.
All the dogs are fed Lamb & Rice & Lamb Senior/Lite.
Will keep you updated!
CSJ gives team the 'winning edge'
Only just got around to unpacking the van last night and found all the prize bags - will try some of the samples and let you know how we get on. Your advice is very much appreciated.
My team won our division at the weekend and we know that your food has given our dogs that "edge” we all look for. Especially Sky the spaniel - and height dog, who must run all day at his full height.
I was amazed how many people commented that he really seemed to be flying. My husband who runs him had to move back a few feet otherwise he would have got an early change! The only thing we have changed over the past month is his food!!!
So Winners of Division 17 Mansfield Mavericks send you a HUGE Thank you. Every race went to 5 legs and we had to fight for every race. VERY close racing. But our dogs had the energy and stamina they needed.
4 out of the 5 dogs in the team fed CSJ
Fastest time 19.73 secs.
Thanks again and I’ll let you know how we get on.

Fantastic product my dogs never looked better!
"The product I believe is by far one of the best products on the market. After trying all the well known brands, the dogs coats, digestive systems are superb and value for money is fantastic.
I wouldn't feed anything else and believe the product deserves better coverage."
Wolfdogs are little Champs!
I have just raised a litter of British Wolfdogs on CSJ Little Champ and have been really pleased with the result. The puppies thrived throughout and were happy to tuck in from two weeks of age! The puppies' Mum, Asia, was fed on Champ and kept her weight and looked well all the way through raising her pups - in fact she didn't look as though she has had a litter at all! My stockist, Carol, was wonderfully helpful and friendly too!I would thoroughly recommend csj to anyone!

The poo eating has stopped!
I am writing to say a huge thankyou!!!
Our 10month old choc lab has been a poo eater for almost the entire time we have had her (since 8wks old). We have tried everything we could think of seeking support from other owners of dogs that poo eat and vets, nutritionalists and behavouralists - and to be honest, had almost given up.
After speaking to a friend whose dog eats your food, we decided to look at your website and eventually spoke to you on the phone. We talked about our dogs (3 labs - all with different requirements) and home situation, as well as indepth diet discussions, and decided to try your advice (we had nothing to lose as it couldn't be any worse!).
I have to say, we are over the moon to be able to say IT WORKED! (in the first day!!) The poo eating has stopped and her stools have become more normal, and we can now finally begin to enjoy our gorgeous dog.
Thank you so much for treating us as individuals, and following us through a very stressful problem.
We will continue to follow your advice and will be recommending anybody with the same issues to yourselves.
If anyone is reading this and is having the same problem with a dog, dont give up. There is help out there, honest!!
I won't do that again!!
I thought I would email to let you know I've just put another order through. A friend bought our last bag so we haven't ordered for ourselves for a while.
The reason I am emailing is that we chose to try a bag of biscuits which were not CSJ and were from a local store. I am amazed at the difference in my dog's coat, health and smell (both fur and breath)!
When she was on the CSJ biscuits (probably for the last couple of years), people used to comment on how shiny her fur was. Her stools were always easy to pick up and her teeth were white. She's had ONE BAG (15kg) of different biscuits and her fur is dull and shedding. Her teeth are starting to go brown and she smells like an old dog. I am amazed as she's only 4 years old. I'm just hoping that some of the effects of the last lot of biscuits will be reversible with the CSJ!!
Have other people told you of such a big difference with biscuits? It really does appear that the poor biscuits have aged her! She's even sleeping more and for a border collie you'll know that's unusual in a young dog! It's very strange in such a short period of time. What on earth do these companies use to make them??!
Your products are fantastic!
Before, Ruby was nervous of strangers touching her and would hunch up when the judge came over to look at her and although she is still a little unsure she no longer hunches up and allows the judge to feel all over her body. FANTASTIC!
Now the Billy No Mates! Well, I take all 3 of my dogs for a mile walk through the woods every day and I must say I have not seen a tick, flea or anything and their coats are amazing. My Dachshund's coat is glowing and my Pomeranian's is glossy, but the biggest difference is my 14 yr old cocker spaniel who has had skin problems for years and, although this is not a cure for skin problems, I have noticed a huge difference in her coat. It's shining and looks healthy plus she is not itching at her back so thankyou so much. These products are fantastic!
I have now bought more Billy No Mates and I am going to try the Phantom Raspberry as my dachshund has phantom pregnancy and would prefer to try herbal remedy than the harsh vets medicine she had last time. I will let you know how she gets on she is due her next season in a couple of weeks.
Your dog food is a blessing!
We tried all the expensive foods in an attempt to help our bearded collie who suffered terribly from loose bloody stools. Nothing worked until we tried your food for sensitive tums. She has never been better.
So not only are we saving on dog food, but also on vet bills!
Thank you from Michelle and Milly the Beardie.
Champ to the Rescue!
It is not often that you come across such good customer service these days so I thought I would give you an update…..and feel free to include any of it on your recommendations page.
I have been recommending it on the forum for NESSR and find several people are using Champ!
Our working strain Springers….all rescues:
Harry, (22 months) who is gluten intolerant…or at least has loose stools regularly if he has too much gluten in his food….is doing really well on the Lamb and Rice. He walks around whilst “going” less frequently and his stools are firmer. He has not had an anal gland problem since being on this food either. He has increased weight and, although still slim, is a fit boy whose muscle definition would be the envy of many athletes!! He lost weight for a while as he had a very severe reaction to an adder bite and was in the vet hospital for 5 days, but since then has put the weight back on so he is now almost 17kgs. He is very active.
Maddie (was 2 at the end of July) is the thin one, and despite being 18.5 “ is only not quite 14 kgs now. She is no longer “corrugated” along the ribs and is in peak condition on Champ.
Charlie, our stray, but probably was 2 around June/July) is a tall dog at 22.5” now has increased his weight from 19 kgs to about 21kgs and looks so glossy and fit. He is extremely fast and agile, but was too thin. Again Champ is great for him.
And our working strain Golden Retriever…also a rescue: Benson was 2 in mid July is very bouncy, but not as active as the springers on walks…..unless a person with light coloured clothing is in the distance…..! He came to us in April already on Champ. He has increased weight slightly as he needed to, but now must maintain this rather than increase further He is 31kgs and stands 24.5”….so not large as the show retrievers are, but big enough!
They all get bones and chicken wings to supplement and add interest every so often. I no longer feed the CP Xtra to the springers as they are maintaining the weight nicely on the Champ and L&R. The Xtra did the trick, though, in getting them started as nothing else (not even tripe) worked.
They all have beautiful coats now, have no tartar on their teeth and they are extremely fit dogs.
Thanks again for letting me get food so late in the evening(especially on a Sunday and mother's day too!) I told Jeff that I would send a photo of the wonderful improved coats of my setters since switching to the csj food!! Here are the girls in bed today!! And one of the veteran Rua!! And of course Milo who is looking like a proper setter finally!!
PS Last time anyone of them washed was Sept.'08!!!!

Put on weight with CP21!
I've been trying to put weight on my rescue German Shepherd for two years without success, in spite of feeding premium foods, but am very pleased to say that since starting with CP21 (2 months ago) she has put on 6kg! And my whippet cross (also rescue) has put weight on too.
They both love it and are full of energy and look great.
Thanks very much.
No longer 'Stinky Zo' - thanks to CSJ!
I have a 5 year old dalmation who is crazy and full of energy but at times is quite upset with herself. Since we got her we have had massive problems finding food to suit her, she has a delicate tum and all the food we have tried upsets her tum and makes her VERY smelly!
After being recommended CSJ by a friend Zoe has become a different dog, she trots around with a big smile on her face and she no longer called “Stinky Zo” by the kids!
Since inheriting my mum's dog after she passed away, Alfie (an old overweight terrier) has had the Lamb Senior/Lite food and Wow what a difference - he is like a puppy again! So I would like to send my sincerest of thanks and am recommending you to everyone I know, I've even done so to our vet who was very pleased with both dogs.
Many many thanks
Mickey is now thriving on the CP21
Ceri, thank you soooo much for your professional, very valuable and helpful advice.
We have two dogs, Molly and Mickey, both are border collies and in their spare time are Berkshire Search and Rescue dogs:-)
Mickey, bless him, came to us six weeks ago, underweight and with very loose stools (mostly diarrhea and with blood in them).
Had all tests done, everything was fine, so we changed his food to CSJ CP21 and now he is putting on weight and looks a bill of health!! Molly loves it too :-)
Its true 'we are what we eat'!

"Thank you for producing such great products."
Just a quick note to let you know how pleased we are with your product. We recently picked up our doberman puppy whose breeder was feeding CSJ. All the pups looked amazing with shiny coats and excellent stature.
We had never heard of your company and were slightly worried about feeding a product we had never heard of or seen so we researched your site and the nutritional info on the feed.
We've now had the pup for 1 week and have to say he is doing fantastically. He wolfs his meals down like I've never seen and has grown at an unbelievable rate, has boundless energy, and is just a happy pup.
We will be continuing to feed our pup on your product (CP27)and will move to adult when ready. We also have 2 boxers and are planning to swap them over as well.
Thank you for producing great products and a "WOOF" from Olle the Dobe.
I would never use anything else!
I have been using your products for about 3 years now for my 2 flatcoated retrievers and also for my litter of puppies last year. I would never use anything else!
It all seemed too good to be true...
We have a 7 year old Cocker Spaniel and a 1 Year old Chocolate Labrodor who had been brought up and fed on one of the "well" known premium ranges of food and we thought by using it we were helping them, however the spiralling cost of the brand caused us to look for something a little more affordable when we discovered CSJ on the internet.
It all seemed too good to be true - high quality for an affordable price with the backing of numerous breeders. Buying our first couple of sacks we decided to give it a go and see what happened.
Four sacks on and we are amazed at the difference and have only noticed the problems we had now we haven't got them. Our Cocker now looks and acts like she did when she was a puppy and her recent litter is thriving on Natural Little Champ!
Moreover the Labrador is just transformed: On the "beloved" old food she suffered from loose stools, flatulence that would clear a room in seconds, a scurfy coat and was so so hard to control. Since changing to CSJ Natural Champ she has normal stools, no flatulence a shiny coat and is just so relaxed (other than the usual puppy exuberance of course!) that so many people have commented on how well behaved she is "for a Chocolate". My wife was getting ready to try and re-home her but now she can stay.
Thanks so much...
Heal works! Great value too!
I just wanted to write to say how impressed and pleased I am with "Heal". My Boxer, Amber has always had a delicate stomach and would often be off her food 2-3 times a week, waking me up in the night to go outside with a gurgling tummy, eating grass and looking thoroughly fed up until late afternoon when she would recover and start eating.
Since starting her on "Heal" she no longer disturbs us at night to go outside and only has a sore tummy very occasionally...maybe once or twice a month at the most, which is a vast improvement!! and means that I get my sleep!!
When I finished the first tub of "Heal" it took me about a month to get round to re-ordering, and during that time she went back to having a sore stomach a few times a week, which just confirmed to me that the herbs really do soothe and calm her digestive system and since starting them again she has been fine.
I am also impressed with the value for money compared to other herbal products. The tubs are massive and last for ages, and smell really nice too.
Oldest BVIS wins - with a little help from CSJ!
Hi Ceri, just to let CSJ know I have3 border collies who compete in obedience. My old lady at 13 is now retired from obedience but has found a 2nd career winning veteran classes in the breed ring! Yesterday she won the open BC class then won the AV Pastoral Veteran class and then went on to take Best Veteran In Show, not bad for an old lady who was giving about 3-4 years to the other veteran group winners.
I had a hard job to convince several people ring side that she was 13 no one could believe she was more than the min veteran age of 7 and I was told by the chairman of the club that she was the oldest BVIS they had every had.
So many thanks CSJ for keeping my old lady fit and healthy and letting her start a new career!!

That'll do makes life so easy!
Just wanted to make time to say a big thank you for all your help and a constant easy supply of sensibly priced good quality dog food.
You sent me lots of samples based on our intial discussions about my 4 Cairns.
We decided on Natural That'll Do! for all 4 which makes life so so easy, as before I was feeding 2 different 'Xxxxx', at nearly 4 times the cost per bag!
All 4 are thriving, from the teenager right up to Great Uncle Eric
with his arthritis, in fact I even stopped his joint supplement after a month on That'll Do, as he just didn't seem to need it anymore.
They went to be stripped a few weeks ago and even the groomer, a terrier breeder herself, commented on the gloss on their coats.
I can't recommend you enough for quality and price; and the dogs just love it. I was concerned when I tried CSJ because it seemed TOO cheap compared with other similar products on the market, I was concerned the dogs would be missing out, but the price of 'Xxxxx' kept rising, so we had to consider an alternative. I just regret all those years of paying through the nose because they look and even seem to feel better on CSJ!
Thanks again, will keep singing your praises at doggy events.
I can't 'Get Over!' the difference these herbs have made
Hi - I just want to say that we are amazed by your "Get Over" product. We have 2 St Bernards - one is perfect in terms of mobility (in fact I'm sure he thinks he's a Springer!!) but our biggest boy has really suffered due to his huge size and long legs.
We were actually resigned to putting him through a major operation to see if we could replace his hips. He has everything money can buy but it's no use if his quality of life is reduced.
Anyway - THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU !!! Your herbs have given us our boy back - although far from perfect - he is wanting to play and go for walks - and can actually manage to go all around the block without lying down to rest half way. His coat is better and he seems to improve every day (He's only been on them 5 weeks !) He is happier and bouncier and his pal has got his playmate back.
I can't believe the difference your products have made and recommend them to EVERYONE with a dog.
Thank you again! from Sarah, Rob & Bentley & Baxter.
So impressed with the CP Xtra!
I am so impressed with the CP Extra. I use it as a 'balancer' to my natural feeding and it's been brilliant. I was having terrible trouble getting some weight on my cockers, but after only 3 weeks of combining CP Extra with their food, they started filling out, and now they look lovely, are much more relaxed, and really enjoy their food.
My other dogs are also fed on CSJ and I have to say, I would not feed anything else now. I'm very impressed!!

" After feeding my four dogs CSJ, I can't believe the difference in them. Mollie, my collie, competes at agility and now has endless stamina as does Midget, my Patterdale cross that I am training for agility. The old lady Lizzie, a Westie, has suddenly got a spring in her step. The most remarkable is Angus an eight year old Westie that has had problems with his skin all his life. Nothing has helped until That'll do! All four dogs are on That'll do! and look a picture of health.
" Thank you Ceri! The Eezy Peezy is FANTASTIC!! My GSD has had 2 urine tests done and absolutely NO struvite crystals have been found! I am thrilled, please feel free to use this email message as a testimionial as I believe people need to know about this product. The vet is cautious at the moment about it working so well but has stated that should my GSD have 8 months clear then it will be obvious that it is maintaining his problem. I am very confident that it will work, he only has just under 2 months to go before the "trial" is up. "
" Many thanks for the sample packs you sent to me in February 2007. I subsequently purchased a bag of Champ and have been delighted by the effect it has had. Our Lurcher, George, has had a sensitive tummy since we first adopted him as a rescue puppy and we had tried a number of specialist foods but to no avail. My sister found your website and thought it might be worth considering and I am VERY grateful to her! Georges stools have never been firmer and he has put on weight(although he is still skinny! ). Where would we be if we hadn't discovered Champ. Thank you so much."

" Our dogs have been fed on your foods for a year now.Annie & Lizzie on the Gluten free, the rest on That'll Do. We run 9 of our own dogs regularly, in the various PODS teams, Star & Duke are in the PODS first team. PODS have only been beaten once in that time. (last weekend we were second at York)!."
My young dog was approx 4 kgs underweight and by chance I came across CSJ and decided to give it a try. My dog put on his 4 kgs and has a fantastic coat and full of life and a superb temperament.
I then decided to feed my older spaniel on the Natural Champ! and he also has become more affectionate and has become more lively!
I have recommened the product to other people - who are now giving CSJ a try!!!

Have just made our 3rd order for my dogs and I wanted to say a BIG thank you for your fantastic food & herbs. I first contacted you regarding Bobby's sensitive tummy & after receiving the sample packs, I put him onto CP21 & my other dog, Phoebe, onto Champ. I emailed in September to report that they were both doing well. Now we in December & they have continued to 'bloom'. Bobby's 'deposits' are firm and less in volume! and no sign of the upsets he had before. He has also put on weight and condition: he looks twice the dog he was only a few months ago! Phoebe also is doing well; although she didn't suffer like Bobby, her coat & body condition have improved. I have given your details to others who have experienced similar problems. Not sure if they have made the change, but I will continue to 'sing' your praises. I'm sure that my dogs would join in too!
Many thanks to you and your team, hope you all have a lovely Christmas & wish you all Happy New Year.
Your dog food is a blessing!
We tried all the expensive foods in an attempt to help our bearded collie who suffered terribly from loose bloody stools. Nothing worked until we tried your food for sensitive tums. She has never been better.
So not only are we saving on dog food, but also on vet bills!
Thank you from Michelle and Milly the Beardie.
