Hah!--Now that I have your attention, of course I'm referring man's best "friend" and the "benefits" of a natural raw diet, not only for our family pets but the working dog world! There are many correlations between a raw (biologically appropriate) diet and the performance, health and longevity of the working dog. Feeding raw benefits impact their drives(prey,civil,ball,hunt, retrieve,scenting, play); weight management; strength, health and longevity.

Drives ~ A healthy diet of raw meaty bones, meat and organs promotes healthy digestion and increases absorption of vital nutrients and vitamins which naturally, in turn, increases energy levels and brain function=peek drive levels. We all know, what good is the work without the drive?

Weight Management ~ Weight is a HUGE issue with dog's in general but working dogs are expected to be agile enough to perform many imperative services. Whether it be a guide SD, a SAR dog, a police K9, or a MWD they are all performing specific tasks with little room for error. It is VERY difficult for a working dog to accomplish it's duties while lugging around 5-10 extra pounds, let alone 15-20. It's very simply to keep your dog at his ideal weight when he is ingesting exactly what nature intended.

Strength: Muscle power! Strong bones!  Raw fed dogs have jaw and neck strength, out the wazoo, due to the natural method of devouring solid raw bones and and tearing muscle meat. Full body muscle mass and tone,as well, and healthy lung, liver, kidney and heart function, which are KEY for endurance. They will also have INCREDIBLE bone strength due to the proper level of unprocessed raw bone consumption.

Health and Longevity: Self explanatory. Feeding kibble to your dog is equivalent to feeding your infant fast food twice a day from birth. Most likely they would experience a SIGNIFICANTLY shorter life expectancy and many MANY health struggles. While we all know our working dogs are asked to take on more strenuous activity than the average family pet, it's typical for them to "wear out" faster. Not necessarily the case. Fine oiled, well maintained "machines", so to speak, perform longer, better and more efficiently. I'm by no means interested in "selling" anyone on my opinion. These are scientific facts. My goal is to help as many interested handlers achieve their dogs' peek existence.

Last, but FAR from the least, THANK YOU. I want to thank all of our service K9's and their handlers for the countless sacrifices they make to make our world a better, safer place!
