Dog food supplier ‘Gentle’ supports UCR canine undergraduates

Natural dog food supplier Gentle has kindly donated a large amount of cold pressed dog food to support the learning of Canine Behaviour undergraduates at University Centre Reaseheath.

The family run business has been selling cold pressed dog food manufactured by a German company for over fifteen years with a choice of original, small bite, fish, and goat, all of which have been donated to UCR.

The food will be used as rewards during training sessions with the dogs, where our students develop their knowledge and skills of how to train a dog confidently and correctly, for a variety of purposes and activities.

The dog food is naturally nutritious, has a high meat content and is mixed with cold pressed oils, herbs, and vegetables, before being pressed together at a low temperature, to preserve the nutritional integrity of the ingredients.

The owner Beate Rothon said: “I started Gentle because I was tired of watching my beloved dog Zenna struggle with stomach issues. After a lot of research, I discovered cold pressing which allowed us to create a healthy and nutritional food that has the convenience of a dry kibble without the usual additives and chemicals. We now have thousands of customers up and down the country that are seeing huge improvements in their dogs’ health and happiness.”

Reaseheath’s Kennel Manager Paige McCormack said: “Using Gentle will allow our students to train the dogs in their practical sessions using high quality food.

“Some dog treats can be filled with high levels of fat and sugar, so to promote use of a nutritional treat hopefully will encourage students to think about the type of food they use in the future when conducting training classes. Gentle has tailored their food to be palatable, nutritional and not over-manufactured, so none of the food quality is sacrificed.”
