CSJ feeds Champions in all canine sports

CSJ feeds Champions in all canine sports

Press Release

In the 24 years since Ceri Rundle and her father were struggling to find good food at an affordable price for their working Border Collies the word has spread about their CSJ products throughout all canine activities.

Ceri says, “As dyed in the wool owners, breeders and competitors we truly understand the varying needs of dogs within the now huge variety of dog sports from flyball to gundogs and even dancing with dogs.”

She goes on, “We feed the most Champions in the most sports as well as pets which themselves have particular needs such as defence from fleas and lice (Billy No Mates! herbs), or Calm Down! (our herb supplement aimed at dogs in stressful situations such as thunder or fireworks).”

It makes all the years of commitment worthwhile when we hear from happy owners about their successes, typical of which are …

Canisports competitor Chelsea-Anne Lee who won the 2021 / 2022 Championship at Newnham in two categories – Champion 4 Dog Rig (Tony with Ted, Wally, Kai and Nero) and Champion Male Bikejor (Tony racing Nala). Chelsea-Anne told us, ‘Our team as you know is made up of 6 rescue sheepdogs and a staffy x husky. As the interest in canisports grows there will always be a desire for purpose bred dogs for the sport (that’s what makes it such a spectacle to watch) however we are keen to show that rescue dogs can compete just as well and ultimately provide plenty of fun whilst doing so.’

Debra Harker with her beautiful Gordon Setter, Hector – Sh Ch Hernwood Achilles at Ettrick JW – who sent us this photo and comments, ‘Hector gained his 6th CC at Birmingham National on Saturday, as ever fed on CSJ CP21 and Salmon oil. Lots of lovely comments about how good he looks and I know what you put in counts so much.’ 

Ceri concludes, “People’s dogs mean so much to them and, as grass roots owners ourselves, we understand why, so will consistently strive to offer the very best in nutrition at the best possible price to help give their dogs full, healthy and happy lives.”

A great testimonial for CP24 after Mandy Cubitt talked to Nicki, our Nutrition & Technical Manager

A great testimonial for CP24 after Mandy Cubitt talked to Nicki, our Nutrition & Technical Manager

By Mandy Cubitt

As one of my Danes definitely wasn’t getting on with the Little Champ or the tripe, I took the plunge and started to change to one of your recommended foods pretty soon after you sent me your email… I chose CP24 as I’d looked at the ingredients and it looked like it had the highest % of meat- and as I used to have fab results on raw, that looked to be the best option.

OMG! What a difference – even on 1/4 CP24 at the beginning of transitioning them, you could see it was an improvement. I haven’t had a really good firm poop from any of the 4 since I moved from raw a while back. I can’t tell you how hard it’s been not to attach a photo to this email 🤪

They are now still only on 2/3 CP24, but in another week I’ll be fully swapped over. I planned on trying the herbs to see if they helped- but I didn’t need to, it’s been such a success.

Anyway- I just wanted to say I’m over the moon. I’ve recommended CP24 to all of the owners of my litter of puppies who my girl had 10 months ago… 

Fabulous. Many thanks for your help. I’ve now got 4 very happy Danes.

If you’ve got any questions you’d like to ask about your dog’s nutrition, please contact Nicki here for free advice: https://www.csjk9.com/contact-nutrition.asp

Press release – 23.2.22

Tics, fleas, ticks and lice have been hating CSJ’s herbal supplement Billy No Mates! since its introduction in 2006, but customers and their dogs and cats love it!

This year’s mild winter weather has enabled tics and other pesky critters to thrive and already cause problems for dogs and cats … so Billy No Mates! has again been the ‘go to’ product for relief.
Now available in tincture or dry form it’s an easy to use, effective and natural product composed of an aromatic combination of mint, seaweed, fenugreek, neem leaves and lemon balm and is simply added to the dog or cat’s food or treats.

For customers who’ve yet to discover it CSJ recommend that, “As Billy No Mates! is a natural product it can take up to 6 weeks to become totally effective so it’s a good idea to start using it straight away – and if owners suspect their dog or cat already has fleas they should consider using our Skinny Dip Shampoo and Skinny Spray first.”

CSJ brings a smile to a lockdown puppy rescue Tiggy

CSJ brings a smile to a lockdown puppy rescue Tiggy

By Rosanne Bristow

I brought a dog who was a lock down puppy, collected at 6 weeks from the breeder and sold to a family that had never had a dog let alone a springer.

Six months down the line she was fat, crazy and not a happy dog.

Six months on, she has started her training and moved onto CSJ food. When she came to us, she didn’t like food she was given human food that wasn’t appropriate.

Look how much she loves CSJ. She follows us to the kitchen and sits there smiling until we feed her. en amazing, our latest edition is another lab who adores it too. I’m so glad we stuck with CSJ.

Mark and Karen Laker pack CSJ at the top of their suitcase

By Mark Laker

We’re going to The Orkney Islands and Scotland for our holiday this year for hiking, sightseeing and to catch up with Karen’s family. We’ve also booked a day’s sea kayaking exploring caves and wrecks around Orkney’s coast on what is labelled a ‘novice trip’.

Just before Covid we had joined our local canoe club

I did a lot of slalom canoeing in my youth and am still comfortable in a kayak. Karen on the other hand had a lot of enthusiasm and needed to work on her technique – in fact that is the problem, she only seems to be strong in one arm – going in a straight line alluded her for a while. Then she decided to apply her sports psychology skills, which look like this:

• Think of the dream – paddling in sea caves
• Consider what is needed to achieve that dream
• Break it down into a long term goal – written in current tense with emotions and senses: ‘The rugged beauty of the cliffs covered in nesting birds is mingled with their cries, the smell of the sea and the taste of salt water as we confidently paddle along the coastline.’

Then turn that dream into Short Term Goals written using SCCAMP criteria:

• Specific – By the middle of July I will be able to do a day’s sea kayaking in Orkney.
• Challenging – The trip I’ve booked is for novice paddlers – am I at novice level yet?
• Controllable – I can book sessions and the trip…not to be confused with controlling a sea kayak!
• Achievable – We are now regularly paddling for a couple of an hours at a time
• Measurable – The more I practise the stronger I will be so I will measure how many hours practice we get in.
• Personal – I spent many a happy holiday in Orkney on my uncle’s farm and would love to experience some of the islands from the sea.

Now I consider the skills required to reach those goals

One of the skills I need is to know how to deal with a capsize situation, which we practised last week. I felt my body strength needed to pull myself back into the kayak in water was lacking and so I find myself on a similar fitness regime to agility. Weight loss, planking and running for aerobic strength as well as time on water.

The rest of the holiday we plan to be sightseeing and walking the dogs.

CSJ products are going to be well used:

• Kibble – easy to feed – dry or wet if they need more fluid
• Billy No Mates keeping the fleas and ticks at bay
• Skinny Spray for protection before they go running in moorlands
• Skinny Cream in case of any irritations
• Skinny Dip Shampoo – Chic will surely find something to roll in and I must remember to order,
• DemBones – ideal if they get ‘deli belly’

I hope you have fun planning for your own holiday whether you use it to push yourself to achieve something or are just relaxing.

DPD. The UK’s Most Sustainable Delivery Company. Together, we can make a difference.

We’re delighted to see the latest addition to the DPD Green Fleet – the Maxus edeliver

DPD has ordered 750 of these vehicles, which will double the size of their all-electric fleet. DPD have already started delivering green to cities in the UK. See their new and first ever TV ad here. 

Save money by ordering in multiples of two bags – without spending more

It’s a good idea to order your food in multiples of two bags to minimise the number of deliveries per year. In general, approximately one-fifth of CSJ customers order one bag per month.

If you could order two bags at a time and order six times a year instead of 12, it halves the number of deliveries, and saves you 50% on the delivery charges.

More sustainable. More savings.

Of course, we know it’s not always easy to do this because of the cost and storage space. However, this change in the way you order could make a real difference. Think about it.

Press release: No Ake! from CSJ

25.5.21

No Ake! Is a highly potent herb that is aimed at the nutritional maintenance of the dog’s musculo-skeletal system and in particular the inflammatory response.

Composed of Devil’s Claw Root it is extremely effective and can provide that extra bit of help for dogs experiencing acute stiffness of the joints or are perhaps getting over an injury – without the need for steroids or pricey alternatives AND it won’t upset the dog’s tummy.

Here’s what one dog owner posted: “Amazing supplement!!”

“I used No Ake for my elderly golden retriever, Ellie, to ease her aching joints for several years. She only needed vet meds as well from about the age of 15, and lasted past 16 years and 4 months. Thank you CSJ!”

The tiny daily dose can be added to the dog’s dinner on a continuous or ad-hoc basis and is provided in a 100g foil pouch of the dry herbs or in the 250ml liquid form of ‘No Ake! Tincture’.

CSJ’s new bags pay tribute to dog sports

CSJ’s new bags pay tribute to dog sports

The innovative new bag design for CSJ Specialist Canine Feeds illustrates the masses of dog sports whose competitors use their products.

Ranging from sled dogs to working gundogs CSJ feeds the most Champions in the most fields and designed their new bags to pay tribute to the countless dogs and owners who have benefitted from CSJ products over the last 20+ years.

Kath Hardman, Team Manager of Heelwork to Music Team GB, emailed to say, “Just to say I love the Heelwork To Music logo on the bags of food! The other disciplines are good but WOW!  The HTM is perfect!”

Formulated by dog people for dog people and chosen by Champions in every field – CSJ never forgets its roots …

When founder Ceri Rundle and her father H. Glyn Jones couldn’t find great food at a sensible price for their own working and competing Border Collies they enlisted the help of leading nutritionists and herbal experts to devise their own winning recipes.

Made in the UK with an ongoing commitment to develop natural feeds, supplements and treats together with sustainability plus support for canine activities, CSJ is rightly renowned for being ‘the whole package’.

All dogs aren’t equal

All dogs aren’t equal

By: LYNDA WARD

pet trade SOLUTIONS

Ceri Rundle says, “Tailor-made food for our own dogs was the reason for founding CSJ Specialist Canine Feeds and tailoring rations for individual dogs’ needs is still at the very heart of the CSJ ethos.”

Over 20 years ago Ceri chose expert vets and the UK’s leading nutritionist and gave them the challenging brief to develop a full range of appetising diets for dogs of all ages, which had top quality ingredients – yet was reasonably priced.

Using only top quality, natural ingredients, the now extensive range of CSJ feeds, herb supplements, treats and skin products has been continuously developed to meet the specific needs of dogs of all ages – from conception right through to ‘retirement’.

Ceri goes on, “Even dogs from the same litter, with the same activity levels and same living arrangements can have widely different needs and this is why we offer such a diverse choice of products and have an in-house Nutritional Advisor always happy to advise on the best product or tailored combination of products for individual dogs.

There are many benefits to using our products and the features include being all natural, containing no GM ingredients and being made in the UK by DEFRA approved sites which adhere to stringent quality control and traceability systems.”

She adds, “Of course there is no animal testing involved – apart from taste testing by our own kennel (and they don’t mind!).”

 ‘Fit ‘n’ Fast! review – Molly’s story

 ‘Fit ‘n’ Fast! review – Molly’s story

By: Kirsty Dodd

I’d just like to share Molly’s story with you mostly as a huge thank you for your amazing food!

thumbnail_image0

This is a very very happy Molly! 

Molly is my 4 year old rescue large munsterlander/collie mix. She was rescued along with her sister from a drunk farmer who was threatening to shoot at them. Their rescuer drove through the night to fetch the two girls from him.

She kept them as foster dogs till they could be re-homed. Molly was initially re-homed at around 6 months old but unfortunately that didn’t work out so she went back into foster care. Just as she turned 1yr old she came to live with me as a trial for the weekend with me and my husky.

Within the first week I quickly discovered Molly’s health issues! A couple of nights in I woke up to what in all honestly looked like somebody has slit their wrists in my living room. My insides dropped, Having never seen anything like it before I thought I was going to lose her.

thumbnail_image1

After many vet visits, medication trials and allergy testing it became apparent that Molly suffers from hemorrhagic gastroenteritis. The slightest bit of food that her body doesn’t agree with and it sets the whole process off again. I’ve tried Molly on grain free, sensitive, hyper allogenic, raw, the list goes on without particularly great results.  Her weight drops so fast when she has an episode and nothing seemed to be helping. Not to mention living on a budget is important to me – £70 a month on dog food for one is a last resort.

I decided to try Fit ‘n’ Fast! by recommendation of our trainer Hayley Laches. After looking into the ingredients I could see that it had all the ingredients I have seen in foods that are specific for sensitive tummies. Beet pulp, milk thistle, mint, yucca, marigold, salmon, the list goes on. So I agreed to give it a go.

Molly has been on Fit ‘n’ Fast! now since August 2019. Her tummy episodes have since since near disappeared! Her weight has gone from a very skinny 15kg on average to a healthy 20kg! – my vet was astonished last month at her weight! She loves the food so much I can carry it around as training treats too. She looks healthy! Her coat is shiny and she feels like she has some muscle mass on her for the first time in her life. Her energy and endurance has lifted and I am seeing a significant difference in her strength whilst competing in agility and hoopers.

I’m so happy with Fit ‘n’ Fast! that I have also moved my youngster, Misha Bear, on too who is also looking amazing and loving the food. She will be competing in Crufts this year in the Border Collie Breed Classes and is already looking to be an absolute superstar in both agility and hoopers! She turns 16 months old on Crufts weekend, after which she will be able to start competing in both sports.

Here are some links of Molly so you can see how amazing she is doing and I’d just like to say thank you very very much for having such an affordable and amazing food product on the market that agrees with my girl! It really has been a big deal to me how well she has done on it!
