Seven staff members at Scampers Natural\u00a0Pet Superstore\u00a0have passed\u00a0Natures Menu's raw food training module.\r\n\r\nRaw pet food specialist Natures Menu provides education and CPD in the raw sector. The company has created a specialist pet store training programme in conjunction with its\u00a0veterinary team. It includes raw adviser, raw expert and raw consultant. The training is being exclusively offered to specialist natural pet stores who promote professional raw pet products.\r\n\r\nCraig Taylor, managing director at Natures Menu, said: \u201cThe team at Scampers are totally dedicated to offering professional product advice and it\u2019s a fantastic achievement for the team to have seven raw experts on hand to deal with consumers who want professional advice about switching to raw, raw products and raw safety\u201d.\r\n\r\nCraig went on to highlight that the increasing trend towards natural, raw feeding continues to rise. Pet parents who are interested in raw feeding want to know about transitioning their pet to raw, food safety, ingredients and how to feed the raw diet and the raw adviser course deals with these basic entry enquiries.\r\n\r\nSophie who recently completed the course, said: "It was a little harder than I thought, but the questions guide you through very well and it has been really beneficial and helps in discussing raw food with customers, which is a huge, developing part of our business". \r\n\r\nSophie has already used her newly gleaned knowledge to advise customers with dogs with specific needs and feels the training has given her a higher supported level of knowledge. She said: "Knowledge and understanding is key to selling great and honest products, we get constant positive feedback from our customers too."\r\n\r\nNatures Menu's training provides information covering nutrition, pet food manufacture, the NM range and clinical nutrition.
