Who do you ask when trying to decide what to feed your dog?
General internet searches? Social media? Stores? Online groups? Your vet?
Are you confident in what you are finding, or are you even more confused, or somewhere in between?
There are soooo many choices … With all the information out there, it can be quite overwhelming!
But it doesn’t have to be that way. Making your own healthy dog food can be easy, quick and simple. Not confusing. However, sometimes it takes a little guidance. That’s what I am here for. Check out my services.
My job is to help simplify and understand healthy options for your dog. These options are based on many things, including my own experiences and success with dog parents and their dogs, established information about dogs’ needs, and foods well-known for their health supportive qualities.
My philosophy: No trends. Just old fashioned, common sense foods.
Here are some highlights about me:
Cooking. I have been home cooking for my dogs since 2008, and have learned some things along the way. I’ve also been fortunate enough to connect with some very progressive veterinarians, chefs, nutritionists and other pros who have taught me a lot over the years!
Learning. I’ve been studying human and animal nutrition since 1996.
Caring. I do this because I believe in it. I treat every client’s dog as if they were my own.
