Skinner’s Working 26 (previously known as Crunchy) is a complete working dog food. This dry food recipe has been specially developed and formulated to support dogs who are regularly working at a moderate to high activity intensity. The formulation includes a protein level (26%) to support muscle integrity and development, combined with a fat level (16%) to ensure sustained performance ability. These factors along with a good level of digestible starch (34%), provides a diet to support animals needing fuelled for high activity levels of moderate duration, such as working gundogs (for example picking up dogs on driven shoots) or agility and flyball dogs.
Why has the name changed?
The name “Working 26” reflects the protein level (26%)
Has the recipe changed?
– Rice has been replaced with naked oats as rice can be difficult to source. Naked oats are similar to rice in the sense it provides a good source of nutrients like carbohydrates and should have no impact on palatability.
– We have adjusted our vitamin and mineral levels to ensure our diets provide the same great nutrition.
– The fat levels have increased as dogs preferentially use fat as a source of energy. Therefore we have increased the fat to provide a good source of fuel for hard working dogs.
