Lyka Story: dog food delivery gives Justin & Josie more time to play

As a massive dog lover, Rob was never without a furry friend in his life, having previously had three gorgeous Boxers. Coming into his life just over two years ago, Josie and Justin were siblings and were numbers four and five in Rob’s Boxer line-up.

“I have always been a dog lover (some say obsessed) but I fell in love with Boxers and their crazy, exuberant zest for life, clown-like behaviour and affectionate nature.”

As for their names? Justin was named by his breeder before he found his new home with Rob, but Josie was named after, yes you guessed it – the old school cartoon, Josie & the Pussycats!

Fun & games

For Rob, life is never dull with Boxers around. Justin and Josie are full of energy and always up to no good – in the best possible way!

“Justin is a big crazy goof ball, his energy level is extreme. He’s the biggest clown and a bit of a cuddle monster. He loves his ball and frisbee and will happily play all day. Josie on the other hand is a little doll, she’s very cheeky, very clever and very sensitive. She loves people, driving in the car and running away with my underwear and socks as I chase after her – it’s one of her favourite games.”

Always up for a good time, Justin and Josie love the beach and love being involved in anything that Rob does. But most of all, they are always there for him as a companion during the good times and the bad.

All natural

Rob had always fed Justin and Josie a homemade natural diet and when it came to dog nutrition, he was a huge advocate for real quality food. However, this was a very time-consuming process that required a lot of effort and expense to ensure their nutritional needs were met.

“Living in a small town, I often had trouble sourcing a reliable supply of ingredients that I needed. Sometimes I would travel two hours a week to two different towns just to source the ingredients I needed to make their food.”

Whilst Rob was always happy to do this for Justin and Josie, he knew there had to be an easier way, and that’s where Lyka came into their lives. 

Convenient & nutritious – the discovery of Lyka

Rob researched and looked at a number of fresh pet food delivery services, but finding one that was suitable and also delivered to the regional area where he lived really limited his options.

“Lyka seemed like a good fit from the start as I came across so many amazing reviews and it looked very similar to the style of food that I was already making for Justin and Josie. So, I got in touch with Lyka’s Customer Care team – I must’ve sent them about fifteen emails and asked one hundred questions about their food, the ingredients and their cooking process, I really did put the team to the test.  But, very happy with their responses and unable to fault their service, I took the plunge and placed my first order.”

Rob could see the Lyka difference from the moment his first box landed on his doorstep. 

“When the food arrived, I could see how how fresh it was, how good it smelled. I could see that it was real food with quality ingredients.”

As with all new Lyka customers, Rob was given a jar of transition powder, a probiotic aimed to help settle the gut during the changeover to a new diet. Incredibly though, Justin and Josie didn’t need time to adjust, having eaten fresh, natural food for at least two years. For them, transitioning onto Lyka was a dream.  

“We bypassed the transition period without any issue at all and we have never looked back. Justin and Josie absolutely love their Lyka meals, and I love the time, effort and expense it has saved me in the kitchen. The convenience of having their meals delivered has given me more time to spend with them doing things they love, it’s great!”

Living the life on Lyka

Justin and Josie had been very healthy dogs prior to starting their Lyka journey, having been fed a fresh, natural diet for a number of years (lucky things!) but Lyka’s recipes have just given them an extra boost to help them maintain great overall health. 

“They do seem to like their Lyka more than what I used to make them (how rude!) and their coats are so shiny and soft, we have no skin issues, no digestive issues and their poos are always awesome. They’re honestly bright, happy and healthy all thanks to Lyka.”

Even their vet was impressed.  

“I recently took them to the vet for a routine check-up and the vet commented on what superb condition they were in and even asked what I was feeding them. I answered, “real food – Lyka” as there is no doubt in my mind that real food like Lyka, helps to improve the health, happiness, vitality and longevity of our dogs’ lives.”

Impressed with his Lyka experience, Rob has even convinced some of his friends to make the move across to Lyka – what a customer!

“I love what Lyka is doing, so much so that I’ve now managed to convince four other friends to change their dogs’ diet from nasty highly processed kibble over to real food. We are all enjoying what Lyka is doing for our dogs and we are always commenting on how amazing it is.”
