Skinners Dog Food Review Top 3

#1 Skinners Duck & Rice

This Skinners Field & Trial dry dog food comes in the flavour duck and rice and is available in bags of 2.5kg or 15kg.

The recipe is hypoallergenic, free from wheat gluten, maize gluten, barley, gluten, soya, and dairy products. It’s formulated especially without ingredients that can cause allergies or sensitivities and so reduce the likelihood of any skin, coat and/or digestive problems.

It’s also specially made for working dogs, such as German Shepherds, Boxers, Rottweilers, English Mastiffs, etc. This is because Skinners dry food maintains energy, allowing your dog to burn their energy off throughout the day, as well as a healthy coat.

Skinners Duck and Rice is made with British duck meat meal (20%), rice and oats (40%), and contains all of the essential vitamins, minerals, and carbohydrates that are needed for health, vitality, and sustained stamina.

Some of the ingredients in this recipe are Vitamins A, D3, and E, peas, whole linseed, beet pulp, and plenty of minerals such as Iron, Iodine, Manganese, Zinc, etc.

Manganese is necessary for dogs to produce energy, make fatty acids, and metabolize carbohydrates and protein. It also plays a role in the health and maintenance of our dog’s bones and cartilage in their joints.

All three of the Vitamins which you can find in this dry food are rather necessary for a healthy dog. Vitamin A, in particular, is a fat-soluble vitamin that is responsible for growth, immune function and cell function.

This Field and Trial dog food is coated in sunflower oil, which contains high levels of Glucosamine and Chondroitin. These are joint supplements which lessen inflammation before a joint injury occurs in a dog, and helps repair body tissue such as cartilage.

  • Nutritious duck and rice
  • Plenty of vitamins and minerals
  • Excellent for working dogs
  • Hypoallergenic
  • The food doesn’t agree with all dogs

#2 Skinners Field & Trial – Lamb & Rice

This Skinners working dog food comes in the flavour Lamb and Rice and in bags of 2.5kg or 15kg. It’s specially formulated for all adult working dogs and is made with British lamb meat meal (25%) and whole brown rice (40%).

Skinners Field and Trial’s recipes are purposefully formulated to avoid using any ingredients that could possibly cause any allergic reactions such as dry, flaky or itchy skin, loose digestion, or even flatulence.

It’s also completely hypoallergenic and nutritious, free from wheat, wheat gluten, dairy, beef, eggs, and soya. Enhanced levels of Glucosamine and Chondroitin protect your dog’s joints, because they are known as joint supplements, and help repair body tissue and reduce inflammation.

This dry dog food helps to maintain healthy teeth, bones, strong muscles, and a glossy coat. It also helps protect your dog’s joints.

There’s also barley, chicken fat, and linseed in the recipe.

Chicken fat is a balanced and high-quality fat source to provide our dogs with. It can help their organs function properly, as well as support a healthy immune system, skin, and glossy coat.

Linseeds contain lignans, and they can improve cardiovascular health, kidney function, maintain healthy skin and coat, and help lower blood pressure. Also, linseeds have anti-inflammatory properties and can ease arthritis symptoms.

In the ingredients, you can also find some great vitamins such as Vitamin E, A, and D3, as well as plenty of minerals like copper, iodine, zinc, iron, etc.

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin that is essential for a dog to have a healthy immune system, heart, liver, nerve cell membranes, muscles, skin, and a glossy coat. Also, dogs with a skin allergy which causes itchy and/or dry skin, or ear allergies can really benefit from Vitamin E.

Copper helps a dog’s body to absorb iron, which is important for the function of red blood cells, and it also promotes healthy connective tissue, myelin, and the formation of our dog’s bones.

Zinc is very important for dogs and their immune system function and thyroid function. Dogs that are lacking in zinc lack protection from infection, as well as other problems.

  • Nourishing lamb and rice
  • Lots of minerals and vitamins
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Free from wheat, dairy, eggs, soya, …
  • Some dogs don’t like it

#3 Skinners Puppy Food

This Skinners grain free puppy food is available in bags of 2.5kg or 15kg and is free from any artificial colourants, preservatives, and flavourings. It’s also wheat-gluten free, and the recipe is nutritionally complete, making it perfect for puppies and young working dogs.

It supports the immune system, maintains healthy teeth and bones, and builds strong muscles.

The kibble is of a smaller size, which is important for puppies because of their small jaws. If the kibble was any bigger, they’d have trouble eating it, and if it were any smaller our puppies would gobble it up without even chewing it properly before swallowing.

As a puppy, this is their first and most crucial stage of development, so it is essential that we are providing them with enough nutrition. You can feed this Field & Trial dry food to your puppy from the age of three to four weeks old, up to around nine months of age. This dry food will ensure that your puppy has received all the proteins, vitamins, minerals, oils and carbohydrates that are necessary for a steady and healthy development as they grow.

This Skinners Field and Trial dry dog food contains Mannan Oligosaccharide (MOS), which is a natural digestion enhancer derived from vegetable sources. It improves the gut microflora balance and has immune-modulatory properties, and so it helps maintain a healthy digestive system.

In the ingredients, you will find chicken meat meal (30% minimum), maize, chicken fat, white rice, oats, maize gluten meal, sunflower meal, linseed, beet pulp, dried egg, and yeast.

Beet pulp is a great source of energy and fiber which promotes colon health and can enhance your dog’s ability to absorb ingredients.

Dried egg is the highest quality protein for dogs, as it is highly digestible and provides a ton of nutrients and antioxidants. Dried egg also has antibacterial qualities, immune-boosting properties, and more.

Yeast is rich in B vitamins and antioxidants, and it promotes healthy liver function, skin, and coat. High levels of B vitamins can even reduce anxiety in dogs.

Also, there are plenty of vitamins, such as Vitamin A, D3, and E, and minerals such as Iron, Iodine, Copper, Zinc, Selenium, etc.

Vitamin D3 is essential for puppies in order to help grow and maintain healthy bones, tooth development, nerve development, heart health, muscle tone, and immune system.

  • Perfect for puppy working dogs
  • Nutritionally balanced
  • Small-sized kibble
  • Grain-free
  • Suitable only for puppies
  • A little bit pricey
