Why we're putting quality first...

Cooper's Pet Kitchen

Hi neighbours! At Cooper's Pet Kitchen our food is free of cheap fillers like grains, corn, soy & wheat... but what does that really mean?

It means there’s more protein-packed nutrition in every bite. We’re big believers in quality over quantity so while our food may be a little … View more
Hi neighbours! At Cooper's Pet Kitchen our food is free of cheap fillers like grains, corn, soy & wheat... but what does that really mean?

It means there’s more protein-packed nutrition in every bite. We’re big believers in quality over quantity so while our food may be a little more expensive than some, its nutrient density makes for smaller portions with more readily absorbable nutrients.

Get more bang for your dog’s bite with 50% OFF your first order with code NEIGHBOURLY.

This also means a decrease in what comes out the other end... less 'picking up' what they’re 'putting down' at the dog park if you catch our drift.

A woman who turned herself in and a couple living a "lifestyle choice" are among five Marlborough properties checked for hoarding last year.

Environmental officers from the Marlborough District Council visited three properties with reported "unsanitary living conditions" from last July, and made developments in two old hoarding cases.

Council environmental health technician Georgia Murrin said hoarding often involved unsanitary living, which was defined as having no water, no toilet or shower access, or signs of mould, vermin, flies or fleas.

In your opinion, when does collecting become hoarding?
