Give the dog a bone! Even as far back as "Old McDonald" ( and farther back) it has been advised and intended!  Not only are bones an ESSENTIAL part of your dogs diet, they are very beneficial in various ways. A dog's health depends on a diet rich in raw bone. It supplies our dogs with the primary nutrients, calcium and phosphorus. Many people are apprehensive about the myth of a threat bones may pose. It's just that, a myth. As long as NO cooking is involved, bones are not only safe, but requ...

"Friends With Benefits"

Posted by anita novosel on Sunday, June 16, 2013, In : Diet 
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.

"How could feeding raw be as easy as feeding kibble?? It's just SO easy to fill the bowl with dry and walk away.
How much time is involved, amount of money and how much effort on the humans part is involved?"

I just got this question this evening but I can't tell you how many times before I have heard similar statements. Good questions, tho. We all lead busy lives and it seems the amount of money we spend goes up by the day. Here's the break down:

"Seriously, The Smell Alone Is Enough To Gag A Maggot!"

Posted by anita novosel on Monday, June 10, 2013, In : Diet 
Commercial dog food....Seriously, the smell alone is enough to gag a maggot! It's also really nasty that the poor animals fed these pellets start to take on that stench. Far more importantly, tho, are all of the other factors contributing to the deterioration of our dogs' health. Disgustingly enough, these factors are the same ones causing the nasty smell and ill effects. Are you ready for this???

Rendering plant. This is the manufacturing plant. Thousands of feet and heads; whole dead carcass...

"I Have Never Seen Such A Beautiful Dog!"

Posted by anita novosel on Friday, June 7, 2013, In : Diet 
While there are countless benefits of feeding our dogs a raw diet, some of the most noticeable are those that 'meet the eye(or nose)'. So many people approach me when I am out with my dogs simply to say,"I have never seen such a beautiful dog!". Of course, we are all a bit biased when it comes to our dogs but the folks who approach me are genuinely shocked at the appearance of my dogs. Much to their surprise I inform them they require very little maintenance compared to others' dogs. The eye ...

Introduction

Posted by Anita Melfo on Wednesday, June 5, 2013, In : About Us 
Hey everyone- Want to let you know why I want to get this site going and why my services are valuable. I got my first German Shepherd Dog,  Mugsy, a couple weeks after my father passed away. I was 15 years old and he saved me from crippling depression.  We rescued him from a local shelter where a breeder surrendered him at 8 weeks old. By the time he turned 3 he  started having mild focal seizures. His diagnosis was Idiopathic Epilepsy. His seizures were few and far between until he ...
