After decades of feeding dogs, reading labels, figuring out the ingredients, I can now share how to choose your dog's food based on science and manufacturing practices.
I've been a dog health coach online since 2009 helping dogs regain their health. Guess what the first thing is I ask my clients?
What does your dog eat?
Because of the answers from hundreds of people, it's time to share that some foods actually make dogs sick eventually. As a coach, I find it so sad when a client says, "But he's been healthy until now" because they had no idea that it just took a long time for the obvious to show.
Join my course and in about an hour you'll know:
As a bonus, you'll feel good knowing how to adjust your dog's meals just twice a week to improve his health and make sure he is getting the nutrients he must have.
Kibble can and does go rancid (bad) making it toxic. To avoid that:
Watch out for Fish
Never buy dry dog food with fish, fish oil, fish meal or omega 3. The first 3 are more likely than not to come from China where they've been treated with a toxic preservative not allowed in most countries (and legally does not appear on the ingredient label). Omega 3 goes rancid too quickly to be of use in food. Add a good source separately.
Never buy low fat dog food (fat doesn't make them fat, carbs do)
Always add water TO THE KIBBLE before serving. The body cannot
process it without water so uses fluids within the body causing
dehydration for 90 minutes after each meal causing long term damage to
Remember, food is the cornerstone of dog health so choose wisely.
Wouldn't you like to know what a science based 20 year veteran of dog food formulation has to say? How about someone who has spent years researching the actual process of making dog food, been allowed inside production facilities and has accessed the laws about ingredients?
Stick with me so you understand the tricks of the trade and be able to see clearly what is best for your dog by the time you finish this course.

If you've done any of these things, don't feel bad because I did four of them.

Fun(?) Fact: The first commercial dog food was not created by a veterinarian, a nutritionist, a scientist or even a dog owner. It was created by a Salesman.
As always, I love serving your dog through you,
