The HUNTERS PRIDE recipe combines a wolf’s natural diet with the latest scientific findings about correct dog nutrition.

The main source of food for wolves, from which our canine companions are descended, is of course meat and fish. But wolves also consume fruit, herbs and vegetables either by foraging, or via the contents of their prey’s stomach. This is how wolves get the vitamins, minerals, trace elements, enzymes and secondary plant compounds they need.

However, the composition of HUNTERS PRIDE dry food goes a step further. Together with vets and food scientists, each individual ingredient has been compiled according to the type and quantity needed, so you can be confident that HUNTERS PRIDE is in line with the latest knowledge about the dietary requirements of dogs. This makes HUNTERS PRIDE dog food unique.

Learn more about the superfoods we include, such as Yucca schidigera, Jerusalem artichoke, natural prebiotics and Moringa oleifera.

  • MOS (Mannan-oligosaccharide) is a source of dietary fibre. A scientific study conducted in 2002 demonstrated that MOS promotes the development in mammals of the probiotic bacterium Lactobacillus acidophilus, which improves digestion and strengthens the immune system (1).
  • FOS (Fructooligosaccharide) is a source of prebiotic fibre. A scientific study conducted in 2010 demonstrated that FOS promotes the development of health-promoting lactobacteria and bifidobacteria in the intestines of mammals. These keep the intestinal flora in equilibrium and are considered natural opponents of coliform bacteria (2).
  • Yucca schidigera belongs to the Asparagaceae family and thrives in places such as Mexico and the Mojave Desert. Several scientific studies have demonstrated that Yucca schidigera both significantly reduces flatulence and markedly improves faecal aroma (3). Another study, conducted in 2004 at the University of Salerno (Italy), concluded that reservatrol and yuccaol C, two substances found in the yucca plant, help the body to counteract harmful stimuli (4).
  • Immutop® is a Jerusalem artichoke concentrate from the Jerusalem artichoke tuber. It belongs to the daisy family and contains the carbohydrate inulin. A scientific study conducted in 2006 at the Institute of Bacteriology and Mycology at Leipzig University’s Faculty of Veterinary Medicine concluded that insulin from the Jerusalem artichoke plant promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria in the large intestine (5). A study by a team of scientists headed by Prof. Dr. Andreas Diefenbach from the Institute of Microbiology and Hygiene at Freiburg University Medical Center concluded that healthy intestinal flora strengthens immune defence in mammals and thus protects them from various bacteria and viruses. (6) 
  • Moringa oleifera is a plant from the Moringaceae family and comes from the Himalaya region of North West India. What makes Moringa oleifera attractive to mammals is its high concentration of beneficial plant compounds. These include:
    • 7 vitamins (A, B1, B2, B3, C, E, K)
    • antioxidants
    • omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids
    • 10 amino acids (arginine, histidine, lysine, tryptophan, phenylalanine, methionine, threonine, leucine, isoleucine, valine)
    • 14 minerals and trace elements, including iron and zinc.
    Due to their quantity and particular combination, these plant compounds cause a strengthening of the immune system in mammals, which is why Moringa oleifera is said to have many positive effects for maintaining health. For example, several medical studies show that the juice of Moringa oleifera leaves is antimicrobial, meaning it inhibits the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria. (7,8,9,10)

Pheasant, Duck and Rabbit

  • The human-grade meat comes from German farms that guarantee no animal fattening and is free from hormones and antibiotics.
  • It contains a high proportion of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and is naturally enriched with vitamin B6, magnesium, iron, potassium and zinc.

HUNTERS PRIDE combines the ancestral diet with the needs of your dog today, allowing it to enjoy natural and appropriate nutrition every single day. All of the ingredients in this unique recipe serve to maintain the health of your dog. That’s why Wolfsblut is Germany’s most popular dog food brand.
