    The BOF Principle (Behavioural Optimising Food)

    Behavioural Optimising Food (BOF) is the principle of restoring the dog's natural diet which means keeping the dog's blood sugar stable. Our very low preparation temperature preserves the nutritional value from our high quality raw ingredients and the kibble size ensures that the meal is always chewed and not swallowed whole.

    First Bag of ESSENTIALS?

    We at ESSENTIAL FOODS welcome you. With the first bag, a lifestyle change begins regarding diet. You can introduce ESSENTIAL over a period of 4-7 days or directly from the first day. The first week of introduction, you may find that the dog has a little extra air in the intestines. This is because dogs, like humans, react to dietary changes. Stools are the same amount but may be a bit softer. After this adjustment period, you will enjoy all the benefits of choosing ESSENTIAL FOODS in both the short and long term. You are always welcome to contact us for advice and guidance.

    A few words and advice for particularly picky dogs

    Most dogs can't resist the taste of ESSENTIALS, however, it can happen that they do not eat up. This is not because they are picky eaters, but because ESSENTIALS makes the dog feel 'full'. If your dog is very picky, try pouring some warm water over the feed.
