Barking Heads food has not been around too long as a brand, and they've entered the natural pet food market with a good range of well marketed dog foods with very cute names and nicely designed packaging
They are competing in a crowded market dominated by the likes of James Wellbeloved, Arden Grange, and Burns, with lots more brands nibbling away at the big boys' heels with better value for money.
Unfortunately, Barking Heads is actually more expensive than some of its major competitors unless you can find it discounted, and really only has its excellent marketing to rely on to enable it to compete.
Barking Heads contains a good selection of natural ingredients throughout its range. If you can afford it, then you'll probably be pleased with the product.
Although it is good, you can pick up a bag of natural dog food for much less than the price of Barking Heads, which is why we rate it lower than maybe the ingredients suggest.
Expect to pay up to £54 for a 12kg sack
The star rating is based not just on quality of ingredients, but if the food offers value for money!
