    Indeed. I get supply issues in the short term, but for months seems a bit ridiculous. They'll start to lose custom if they haven't already. If all the regular stuff isn't back in stock next time I'll be going elsewhere.

    Well they've just lost mine apart from the kibble which is always available. I usually buy two sacks at a time as it's cheaper to do it that way.

    ha-ha, thats their standard reply every time ive asked !

    I get that sometimes there are supply issues, like venison stuff seems to be more available from September - April and then it can be hard to get for a few months until the season starts again, but no excuse for the rest of the stuff IMO.

    Hmmm, maybe a daft question but would any of these be suitable for puppies as well? Boris is only 9 weeks old and we are keeping his diet quite boring right now to not upset his tummy, but I'm looking for good training treats... Any idea if these treats would be suitable? :)

    If you have a look at the "deli" section there are lots of different sausages that a puppy would properly love .... but, you do need to be quite careful about upsetting tums.

    I mainly stuck to just using kibble for treats when they were young because their tummies can be more sensative, plus you are literally giving them treats constantly when training - obviously take the amount of treat kibble used out of their daily allowance.

    When you aren't treating for every single thing, you can move up to better treats :)

    I just got an order from them too - puffed chicken feet, venison sausages and dried sprats. I am very impressed with the speedy delivery. Thank you @Siskin for the heads up!

    Well it was @Westie Mum really. I spotted her post in the Crufts thread when I had just tried to order stuff from Zooplus only to find that yet again it was all out of stock, so I sent her a pm to ask about the shop and what the treats were like and then ordered a whole load of stuff. So hats off to @Westie Mum :D

    I now can't come to Crufts :(

    We have stuff going on here that we can't leave. Hopefully next year. That said, I think the postage for what I got from the treat people was very reasonable.

    I would tag whoever introduced me to them back at Crufts a few years back but I don’t remember who it was now! Every year in our Crufts thread he is just called the natural treat man lol .... he’s actually called Dominic .... yep, I’ve talked to him THAT much :Shamefullyembarrased

    Nooooooooooo :( :( sad for you, I know you were looking forward to going!

    Yep, his postage is very reasonable and the treats are literally 50p or £1 per kilo cheaper at Crufts, so only really save a fiver or so buying from him at Crufts tbh.

    You’re welcome :)

    Do they?
    I ordered the largest option they had listed, is there some secret pizzle stash somewhere?

    It's nice to be able to look at the choices of treats & then when the Crufts stash has disappeared, at least you have some idea of what you're getting.
