It is sadly unavoidable with the rising cost of fuel that we have to increase our delivery charge to £2.50. We really hoped to avoid this but we promise to keep an eye on things and when things improve (hopefully soon) and fuel comes down somewhat, we will adjust our costs accordingly.
Thank you all for your continued support, it means a great deal to us (and all small businesses) we really appreciate it.

To all of the dogs choice customers, a huge thank you! Every month, The dogs Choice donates £20 to Battersea, and it’s all thanks to you! When The Dogs Choice customers give us extra change, we put it towards the Battersea charity. The rest of the money is made up by us at The Dogs Choice. This raises enough money for them to sponsor a kennel for animals in need.
By helping us, you’ve helped this charity! We really appreciate your generous offers and contributions.
Above all, you’ve helped to save 10 dogs and cats a year! Thank you and Merry Christmas!

The Dogs choice also donates £10 a month to a fresh water charity, in order to help over 5,000 families all across the world without clean water. So far, this charity has helped 2,198 families across the world, and will continue to work until they have reached their goal of 5,000 families.
Want to help? Visit Charity:Water and donate to help them reach their goal, and help another family. You can find them at http://www.charitywater.org
Wishing all our customers a Very Merry Christmas
We made a little video with our hairy family, hope you enjoy

MJ Petfoods have now changed their name and brand look to Dougie’s.
It is still exactly the same products and same high quality, so nothing to worry about there. We are in the process of changing all the pictures, so for now, just order from the MJ Petfoods range, but remember the logos will all be for Dougies

Christmas Opening Times
Due to this hectic time of year we politely ask that you get order in by 10am the day before required for delivery & collection.
We will try our best to get all orders to you as soon as possible .
Christmas opening hours below
Normal working up to Dec 24th
We will be closed for collection or delivery on 25th, 26th and 27th December
28th, 29th December normal service for delivery and collection
30th December, collection only (no deliveries available) from the Fareham unit between 9.30 & 10.30 – or collect from Gosport after receiving text, up to 8pm.
We will be closed for collection or delivery on 31st December, also 1st, 2nd and 3rd January
4th January, open as usual – normal service resumes
Although we strive to keep our delivery costs as low as possible, the recent rise in fuel prices means that unfortunately, we have been forced to increase our local area delivery fee to £1.80.
We do hope this isn’t too much of an inconvenience and that you can understand our dilemma, but of course, if you prefer not to have delivery, we still offer free collection from either the Palmerston Business Park, Fareham, freezer unit (please call first), or from the usual place in Gosport.
Due to the HGV / Haulage crisis we are experiencing at the moment (this is a country wide problem), maintaining the level of stock has become increasingly difficult. As a result, some of our stock levels are considerably lower than we would like. We have all of these products on order and are just awaiting for them to be delivered. Because of this, we have increased stock levels of some of our other brands that are better able to deliver (have their own vans/lorries), so there are alternatives for you to choose from.
I appreciate that some of your dogs favour particular brands, but most dogs will benefit from having a change now and again. We hope this situation will be short lived and we will be back to full stock levels on all brands very soon.
As some of our alternative brands will not be arriving until Tuesday 24th August, we will add an additional Thursday 26th August delivery option for Portsmouth area customers, this week.
Thank you for your continued support during this difficult time for us all.

Their raw mince and sausages are made in-house for complete transparency in their manufacturing process. If you turn over the packet to read the ingredients, you’ll see you won’t need a science degree to understand what you’re feeding your dog. All of the ingredients are British and sourced locally wherever possible, either in the Cotswolds or down the road in the Vale of Evesham.
The products are free range and organic and grass fed, including Chicken, Beef, eggs, vegetables and herbs.
