For the second month in a row the Landywoods food delivery has been delayed.
This has again caused many people problems as they were running out of or low on food.

The last order of food we received was not up to the usual standard that we have come to expect with several people including myself experiencing food quality problems.

I have for 2 years collected and distributed the food initially every 6 weeks and latterly every 4 weeks for members of the Dog School at cost price.

The orders have got bigger and the amount of time I spend on this has got to the stage where my entire 'food' Friday every month meant that I spent the whole day collecting and distributing come hail, rain or shine.

Declining food quality and erratic delivery's have forced me to look elsewhere for a supplier and it turns out we have a raw food supplier on our very doorstep where we can each individually collect raw dog food as and when we need it.

Grayshill Ltd.
Mollins Road
Cumbernauld
Glasgow
Lanarkshire
G68 9BA

01236 823138

Therefore I have taken the decision to stop ordering food from Landywoods.

May be none of my business as I dont feed my two raw but I worked at Palacerigg for many years and we always got our Carnivores' meat from Grayshill with no problems at all.

I am no longer getting food from Landywoods after the quality issues and the erratic deliveries , there will be no delivery this Friday.

I bought from Grayshill this morning.

Minced beef is 3.50 for 5KG and 10 for 15KG ( you need to split and bag this yourself before freezing)
Chunked heart/tripe/tongue/kidney etc is 3 for 5KGs
There is no charge for marrow bones.

There will be no group delivery on Friday..........

If anyone wants to continue to order from Lanywoods you can of course do this through Louise however you will need to arange to collect it either from Hamilton or South Queensferry.

Could someone give us a rough idea of the kind of portion sizes we should be giving Ollie and Maxxy when we go onto raw food diet?

Thanks

Craig
