SHIPPING

We use various couriers and may split up food and treat orders between couriers. You can find out details about costs, timings, couriers etc on our shipping page:  https://shop.bounceandbella.co.uk/pages/shipping

Do you ship to Northern Ireland?
Unfortunately we can only ship within the UK at the moment because of the very very high fees associated with moving food stuffs into Northern Ireland and Europe.

Do you ship outside the UK?
We only ship within the UK at the moment from our website.
However we do sell within Europe via the various European Amazon stores. Just choose your local one and search Bounce and Bella.

PUPPY QUESTIONS

Are your treats suitable for puppies?
All the treats are suitable for puppies over the age of 16 weeks and some are suitable for younger puppies - the information should be on the product listing - if you can't find it - just get in touch.
Here are the treats and food we've picked out that work best for puppies:
https://shop.bounceandbella.co.uk/collections/grain-free-puppy-food-treats


When should I move my puppy over to your adult dry food?
That very much depends on what your dog's weight is expected to be as an adult.
So, if you give that a quick google (eg border collie average adult weight) and then come back here to see which of the following three adult weight brackets your dog will be in:

Weight as an adult (in bold):
1 – 10 kg
The time to switch is between 9-12 months (make sure your dog has stopped growing and isn't racing around as much as previously)

11 – 25 kg
With this range the time to switch is between 12-15 months (again, make sure your dog has stopped growing and isn't racing around as much as previously)

26 - 45 kg
Here it's about 15 months (a lot of growing support needed for the bigger growers)

Can my puppy eat raw food?
Definitely. Here's an article with more details including how much to feed: https://bounceandbella.co.uk/raw-feeding-for-puppies

 

RAW FOOD

I'm considering moving to raw have you got more details?
Yes, links to all our information can be found on the following page:
https://shop.bounceandbella.co.uk/collections/raw-dog-food
There's also lots of information on the product pages themselves:
https://shop.bounceandbella.co.uk/products/bounce-and-bella-raw-dog-food-variety
And here's our FAQ for raw food: https://bounceandbella.co.uk/raw-feeding-faq-guide

How much should I feed my dog now I'm switching to raw?
Our recommended guideline for adult dogs is to feed them 2-3% of their body weight in raw dog food per day. But every dog is different so feel free to adjust this recommendation to suit your dog and their needs. 

For example, if your dog weighs 10kg, 2% of their body weight would work out as 0.20kgs meaning you would feed them around 200 grams of raw dog food per day.

Example Estimates
10kg Dog is fed approximately 200g to 300g per day 

15kg Dog is fed approximately 300g to 450g per day 

20kg Dog is fed approximately 400g to 600g per day 

30kg Dog is fed approximately 600g to 900g per day


I'm worried about switching my dog to raw - it looks complicated - do you have any guidance?

Yes! Here's an article showing how much easier it is than you think: https://bounceandbella.co.uk/raw-feeding-easier-than-you-think
Our co-founder Darren switched his dog Roscoe over to raw and wrote about his experience and tips on our blog. You can find the article here: https://bounceandbella.co.uk/diary-of-a-roscoe

My dog is very fussy can I still switch to raw food?
Absolutely! Here's a blog post with tips from Darren specially written for fussy dog owners: https://bounceandbella.co.uk/tips-fussy-dog-changeover-raw-feeding

Can puppies eat raw food?
Definitely.

There are two options available when introducing them to a raw dog food diet. 

The easiest option is to feed them 2% of their expected adult weight per day and continue until adulthood. 

However, there are other options available for raw feeding puppies if you don’t know their expected adult weight which you can find in our raw feeding for puppies guide

Can senior dogs switch to eating raw food?
Again, absolutely!

Like adult dogs, seniors dogs are recommended to consume between 2-3% of their body weight in raw food per day. 

However, this is a guideline and may decrease as your dog ages and begins to slow down. You can find out more about raw feeding senior dogs in ouraw feeding for senior dogs guide.
