The three year partnership will put developments in place so that dog owners can enjoy a great day out with their pets, whilst helping to protect the places that the trust cares for.
The project will also ensure there are consistent expectations of dog owners and highlight the dog-free places available to enjoy.
The manufacturer has released a new range of products, such as duck and venison with green beans and apricots or turkey and goose with pumpkin and cranberries, which can be bought on the trust’s website.
Sales of the dog food range will contribute at least £50,000 per annum to support the Trust’s conservation work.
Rachel Forsyth, Dogs Welcome project manager, National Trust, said: “With the launch of our new Dogs Welcome project, we’re excited to make the experience for dog owners and their beloved companions even more special.
“We’re thrilled to have the support and expertise of Forthglade, as their focus is on great canine nutrition and the importance of nourishing relationships between owners and their dogs. We’re also really excited to share the delicious range of natural Gourmet recipes with our dog owning supporters.”
Gerard Lovell, Forthglade’s joint MD, added: “We’re so pleased to be supporting the wonderful work achieved by the National Trust and thrilled to have the Trust associated with our range of natural meals and treats for dogs, it really is an honour.
“We look forward to further bringing to life the National Trust’s Dogs Welcome activity, as the Trust provides so many incredible areas for dog walkers and dogs to enjoy together.”
