The Story behind Furlington
We have been Owners of various animals and pets over the last few decades. Dogs and Cats have been with us for the last 15 years of being married but Sarah also owned 3 Horses, Sheep, 3 little Piggy´s, Chicken, a Goat and a bull called Elvis. The perfect childhood on a farm in Germany.
After getting married and Wayne wanting to own a “big” dog ( we already owned a Jack Russel Terrier) Amber “von der Brennheide” came to us in October 2007. Amber was our first Hungarian Vizsla and the best dog for our growing family we could have asked for. In 2012 our Cat Stella joined us. Stella loves to tell the dogs who the boss is.
In 2017 we were ready for Vizsla Nr. 2 – Ferguson “Agrafina” Blyes. Fergus settled in nicely and Amber taught him everything she knew helping us to bring him up to a wonderful loving dog until she sadly passed away in February 2019.
Fergus had problems from the start, no matter what we have tried (Raw, different high and premium quality Kibble, Coldpressed) he was very sensitive with food. Loose stools, dull coat and a smelling backend which would make all of us run away. He suffered twice from Pancreatitis and Hemorrhagic Gastroenteritis loosing a lot of weight and had to stay in hospital on both occasions where we nearly lost him.
In cooperation with a Pet Nutritionist and a Certified Raw Feeding Expert and a lot of research we have been on the hunt for a dog food to help Fergus, which had the right balance of Protein, Veg and Botanicals without Grains which seemed to work best for him. After 2 years of constant problems we found what we were looking for and felt that we want to give our expertise to other dog owners who are looking for a high fresh meat content dry dog food without breaking the bank.
The Idea of Furlington was born – and Fergus got a Vizsla Sister called Shelby in August 2019 who is keeping him on his toes.
Furlington is not only about Dog Food, we are wanting to grow it into more than just food for animals. Establishing other brands in different areas in the past we are looking into adding care products, accessories as well as functional clothing for horse riding and dog walking into our repertoire.
And that shall not be it – Sarah is currently busy finishing her own Canine Nutritionist Degree and we want Furlington to be a Hub for Pet/Animal Owners with useful Information about Nutrition, Illness, Recovery and Care but also cooperate with others to build up a Platform when you need a Pet related Service in your area or even a Holiday Accommodation
We are also actively helping Rescue Charities and Animal Shelters to get food for their animals or help with running costs
We are looking forward to the future
