What do you mean by 'for all game dogs'?
The use of 'game' in our tagline is a wordplay. It describes both our main ingredient and the willing nature of a typical working or active dog. We think it's also a fitting way to describe the character of many smaller breeds like Dachshunds or Terriers. 

Ultimately, Hoddy's is a fantastic product for all active dogs - no matter their size.

Is Hoddy's suitable for my puppy?
Hoddy's has been designed to meet the nutritional needs of adult working and other active dogs. Puppies typically require a more specialised diet designed to support their faster rate of growth and physical development. If you are unsure about what to feed your puppy we recommend that you get advice from a responsible breeder.

Sustainability

Do you have a sustainability policy?
Hoddy’s ethos is all about sustainability and we have a commitment that wherever possible we will do all we can to ensure our products and business operates sustainably. For more information please visit our sustainable story.

Is your packaging recyclable?
Our packaging is recyclable, but we do know there are some areas of the country where it is currently not being recycled. Whilst we hope that will change, we continue to review different options available and will report on our progress. If you do have any ideas to help us be more sustainable, we’d always love to hear them and please let us know at munch@hoddy.co.uk.

Is Hoddy's (the business) carbon neutral?
Not yet. Our
 first step will be to accurately measure our carbon footprint,  but that can be tricky for a new business. Once we have a more extensive trading history we will use tools like the Carbon Trust's calculator to help us understand and improve our ecological imprint.
