A bit more information about Arden Grange…

Arden Grange is a family run business based just outside Brighton in the beautiful Sussex countryside. It was founded in 1996 by Graham and Wendy Stephens both renowned for their experience and expertise in the dog world. This extensive knowledge and understanding of canine dietary requirements, combined with the desire to provide superior pet nutrition, led to the creation of the Arden Grange ranger of super premium pet food. 

All dog and cat diets provide  optimum nutrition, promoting health and vitality throughout your pet’s lifetime. The Arden Grange ethos has always been to provide nutrition without compromise and all recipes are formulated to extremely high standards and even approved by a large team of animal taste-testers (also known Arden Grange staff pets!)
