We were super lucky to receive an exciting parcel a couple of weeks ago from the lovely people over at Guru, who were kind enough to send over some samples of their products for Cooper to try out. They very kindly sent a sample of their Surf & Turf & Full on Feast as well as a Chicken Field Trip Bone & a pack of Venison Sausages. What a lucky pup!!!
Who are Guru?
If you haven’t already heard about Guru dog food then where have you been? Their presence on social media is huge and they have such a big following already since launching in 2015. Guru, which is based in Lancashire, creates “cold pressed” dog food, a cooking method that guarantees a naturally nutritious and balanced diet for your four legged friend. It is cold pressed at a low temperature of 44 degrees to allow the tasty bites to retain all of their natural, nutritious goodness. It contains many amazing ingredients such as Beef, Fish, Carrots, Broccoli, Brown Rice & Sweet potato to name a few.
What is also great is that you won’t find any nasty surprises in their food:
- No chemical additives or artificial colours
- No preservatives
- No GM products
- No gluten
- No animal testing

Cooper’s Diet Background.
Just as a little background to Cooper’s diet history, (if you haven’t already read our introduction post), He’s actually currently on an Annalergenic dog food from the the vets and has been for over a year. He suffered severely from “problem” ears as a pup and we finally discovered he was an allergy dog and the vets put him onto a special diet which meant no treats just the Annalergenic food. Slowly we have started introducing treats to him that are Hypoallergenic alongside veg like Carrots (which he goes crazy for!) and he seems to be getting along fine with them, I personally believe the problem to be wheat, we’ve never had him tested but the odd occasion he’s stolen some bread he’s had a bad reaction and a couple of ear infections.
So when I heard about Guru I was so excited to see that their Full on Feast, Surf & Turf, Trip Bones & Venison Sausages were all Hypoallergenic. Not to mention the health bennifits for Cooper from cold pressed food, such as a strengthened immune system, reduced stool odour, (a winner in anybody’s book), improved skin & coat and fresher breath.
The Cooper Test…
However the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” (as they say.) When I opened up the samples of the Surf & Turf & Full on Feast Cooper genuinely seemed to get excited as he could smell it. As soon as I put it down he didn’t waste any time in devouring the bowl full. We had a good 3-4 days worth which was a great amount to see how his stomach / ears responded to the new food as changes show very quickly with him. I’m very pleased to report that Guru was a success with him and I didn’t see any signs / symptoms of any issues like he used to get. The field trip bones are small cold pressed chicken bones made with carefully selected ingredients which are described as being perfect to take on walks or as treats every day. I swear he already knows the words “Trip Bone Tuesday” as he goes crazy when you say it. The Venison Sausages which are made with quality ingredients and naturally air-dried to help maintain their flavor, aroma and nutrients. Guru are proud to say there’s NOTHING TO HIDE and are made from sustainabley sourced British Venison Meat. They couldn’t have been a bigger success with Coop’s and well he’ll literally do anything for them which is great for any training work we do together.
I’m so very impressed with Guru from the ethos behind the whole company, to their customer service and of course to the actual products themselves. Once his current food gets low we will definitely think about changing him slowly over onto Guru as he absolutely loved it. The Trip bones & Venison Sausages have now become a firm favourite and we have already re-purchased to keep his treat box topped up. I think it’s fair to say Cooper has definitely become a very happy “Geekster”.
What are your thoughts on Guru? Has your pup already tried any products or would you now be tempted to look into the company and it’s amazing products.
