Here at Akela WholePrey we believe that dogs deserve optimum nutrition. Our recipes have been developed with this as the sole focus, tailoring our nutrition to the pinnacle needs of military dogs, police dogs, sheepdogs and guard dogs for the benefit of all. Akela is available in working dog food (zero-rate VAT) or pet dog food (20% VAT) variants.
Understanding what makes the best dog food recipe involves a quick history lesson. Over millions of years, the canine species has evolved to hunt and eat prey. With sharp canine teeth (the clue's in the name!), high frequency hearing and a short digestive tract, modern dogs share over 98% of their DNA with their grey wolf ancestors.
Man may have domesticated his working dogs but their natural instinct won't be suppressed for long when you put a bowl of Akela 80:20 grain-free in front of them! Whilst sticking to the appropriate natural ingredients ratio of 80% biological to 20% botanical, there has been no expense spared including freshly prepared ingredients such as chicken liver and free-range eggs. It's no wonder that all Akela recipes are rated 5/5 stars by, independent review websites, AllAboutDogFood.co.uk and eDogAdvisor.co.uk.
Here at Akela WholePrey we also believe that the welfare of all animals is particularly important. That is why we have a policy of not conducting any invasive animal-testing whatsoever. The only testing we conduct is feeding trials in the dogs' own homes i.e. taste preferences. Our policy also extends to the provenance of the prey that goes into our foods; we also look for ethically-reared meats, supplied by UK farmers conforming to UK standards which usually surpass those in other countries.
