In stock, ready for dispatch
'Top Dog' is the book that every dog lover has been waiting for.
Imagine having a dog with the shiniest coat, the wettest nose, the brightest eyes and a svelte physique. A dog with 'good' energy, better concentration, that sleeps well and, wait for it, smells delicious. It would be like a L'Oreal ad, only with dogs. Well, you can have that dog.
Top Dog is written by Kate Bendix; a funny, straight-talking dog lover who got sick of riding the multinational gravy train that is the global pet market and decided that there had to be another way of having a dog. She explains how to improve your dog's health dramatically with a change of diet and how to treat the most common dog ailments yourself, using natural remedies that really do work. The latest research on the importance of training, mental stimulation and exercise is in here too.
If you've ever found lungworm intriguing, or peered inside a tin of dog food and thought, 'Yup, I wouldn't fancy that myself', this book is for you. By following Kate's common sense approach and making a few tweaks, you will have a happier dog that will stay healthier for longer. Because she's worth it.
Top Dog will be released on the 6th of November but is available to pre order now. Simply add to your basket as normal and we'll keep a note of it. When it's out you'll be first to get your paws on it.

Worth buying.If you love your dog and it has a problem you want to seek out what will put him right.I am all for increasing my education about dogs and this does the job.
Easy read with some good tips for people interested in a more holistic approach to dog care. Some chapters on basic dog care, training and behaviour not so useful for me personally but am sure others will appreciate.
Really interesting, down to earth read! Great ideas and a reassuring take on herbal methods.
I bought this book when I started looking into ways in which I could help my own itchy dog, I have made some of the recipes and my dog loves them! It's a lovely book, plenty of useful information and is written with humour. I have quite a few 'dog books', but I think this one is by far the best. Thank you Kate.

Positive feedback from me - I devoured Top Dog in about 3 days, and found it highly informative across the board. As someone who is trying to get away from excessively loading my dogs with chemicals (we sadly lost our wonderful 6 year old JRT to leukaemia earlier this year, and I have long wondered what the cumulative effect of over-loading them with unnecessary drugs is) I have never been keen on using Frontline etc more than a couple of times a year, but having come across Billy No Mates at a local pet shop I discovered there is another way! This then led me to your website and having made a couple of purchases (Lintbells Ear Drops & Cloth, ItchyDog shampoo & the fantastic book - I now have a growing list for my next order!
I would highly recommend this book for every dog owner! Great to read, hard to put down as so interesting and informative.
First of all we had the good fortunate to meet the lovely author of this fav book at a book signing in Arundel & there we purchased the book. Top Dog is interesting, informative & insightful but has the bonus of also being very humorous in tone. You can read it front to back (as we did) or just dip in to relevant sections when you need some advice! Highly recommended! We have since purchased Neem Balm, Neem Skinny Spray & seaweed 😀
Great read very practical and straightforward information. Love the recipes section, My dog has eaten all of the ones I have made which is surprising because he is/was a very picky/fussy eater. It makes me feel good that I am now treating my dog good. Many thanks Kate for enlightening me. I feel the book is something that deep down inside we all know to be right.

I originally purchased this book for the recipes as I've always tried to give my dog a varied diet. Aside from that, it's an excellent book with useful information on just about every aspect of owning and caring for a dog. Definitely worth a read.
