Skinner's Field & Trial Maintenance
Skinners Field & Trial
Our foods are made in the UK at our mill in Suffolk. The Skinner’s mill has been a traditional part of the Suffolk landscape since 1688. The Mill has belonged to the Skinner family for seven generations, but it was the idea of the current Chairman, Roger Skinner, to branch into complete dry dog foods in the early 1970’s – a time when there were very few competitors in this sector of the market. The manufacture of complete dry dog foods was a natural progression from animal feed compounding, and with an excellent reputation already well established the move proved extremely successful.
Following a change in the VAT status on working dog foods, Skinner’s launched their Field & Trial range in the early 1990's. Originally just two foods: Crunchy & Muesli, the range now comprises eight specifically formulated diets, including the recent addition of the two very popular hypoallergenic foods: Duck & Rice and Salmon & Rice.
Whilst Skinner’s past and present is firmly connected to the working gundog sector, we are proud to supply our foods to a wide range of customers, including several police forces, husky racing teams and many show dog, obedience and agility dog customers.

Healthy RetrieverMy Golden is very happy on this food and I think her sustains her well. Not easy for an always hungry Dog!. She has loads of energy, her coat is beautiful and her poos are the right consistency. I would recommend this Food.
Skinners Field & Trial MaintenanceOur black lab loves his Skinners. In the past we had been only too willing to be taken in by the marketing hype from the multinational products from Mars, Nestle etc. Always wanting to do our best for Angus. It was suggested that a lower protein food would be more appropriate for him so we discovered the Field and Trial product, that was a year ago and we have never regretted the change. His general health, coat etc is as good as ever and he is now enjoying product from a 100% UK supplier - another plus. Great product, great value - thoroughly recommended.
Skinners field and trial maintenanceWe adopted Darby, a border collie, from our daughter-in-law's family. Darby was a little overweight due to insufficient exercise. He now gets plenty of play in our large garden and walks in the nearby fields. He loves the Skinners Field and Trial Maintenance food, he's much leaner and more agile than when we first brought him home.
RoyI have a five year old border collie called Morley who has always , shall we say, been boisterous . It came to a head when some six months ago he accidentally caught my wife's friend with his teeth whilst dishing out the usual welcoming of people into our home. Something had to be done to control him better. We got in touch with a specialist dog trainer, called Barbara Sykes. We asked if we could have some training for our dog from her. She agreed to this and asked a few questions about him. The main one being what food he was on, we told her it was Quantum Chicken an Rice. She told us to get him off it as it was far to high in protein for a border collie, in effect we were putting rocket power into Morley. She informed us that we must find a food with no more than 18% protein content. That is when we found the Skinners Field and Maintenance Since he has been on it he has been calmer, don't get me wrong still runs around like crazy on a beach or large field but don't all collies.
Quality foodGreat value for an excellent quality food which my dogs love.
