Phil Rundle

In 2002 Phil Rundle had built up an international career in electronics sales. In 2003, with CSJ sales rising, he joined Ceri full-time in the dog food business, bringing a new commercial perspective to the company.

Phil encouraged CSJ to adopt a marketing model that lets the product do the talking. “We say that our best sales people are the dogs themselves”.

Phil likes to keep a low profile on the internet. However, with the rise and rise of CSJ, he accepts that a small presence on the web is a sign of the brand’s success.

Just thought I would give you a wee update … Well Larry has been on Hike On and CSJ Salmon Oil for about a month now and I am really pleased with his progress. He has put on weight and his coat looks super . he still needs to put on a little bit more weight I think but the change in a month is remarkable. So, thank you once again for taking the time to reply to me and also to CSJ for their great food.

Agnes Crawford, ScotlandHike On! and CSJ Salmon Oil

Just wanted to update you on our rescue pup Baxter since we have fed him CSJ That’ll do. We have two local stockists local to us so after trying your samples we fetched a bag of food and also some salmon oil as recommended by you. The difference in his skin and coat is amazing and he absolutely loves mealtimes. He had some scabs and flaky skin when we got him but now his coat is thick and glossy and people often comment on how good he looks. We are so pleased we tried your food and I will be recommending your website to other dog owners. Thanks again for your help.

Clare and BaxterThat’ll do!

Just to let any potential customers know that your excellent food isn’t just perfect for working dogs. We have a family of 7 pedigree Chihuahuas, a breed renowned for fussy eating habits. They have all been on your Champ range for what must be coming up to 2 years and they adore it. More than that, compared to other chihuahuas we regularly see, ours have the shiniest softest coat……and thankfully on this product never have any stomach problems whatsoever. The other great thing about this range is the small kibble size. So CSJ is definitely a brand we recommend for even small/toy breed dogs. Many thanks.
