Experience in the area

I am certified in Dog Nutrition. Over 6 years now I've owned a natural pet food retail store. I've worked with hundreds of dogs and there owners to achieve better health. We promote a healthy balanced species related diet. This is the way nature made your pet to thrive. Fortunately for those who cannot or wish not to feed a raw based diet, there are alternatives with supplements and cooked food. Just don't let processed food be there only diet. Food is the most powerful medicine. Heal the core of the animal and the rest will take care of itself. We've turned the lives of many dogs around. There parents come back into the store and comment to us on how there dog acts like a real dog again. Our business is thriving and we continue to help many.


We work with Second Chance Companions, Must Love Dogs, members of ASPCA, HSUSA and started our own personal "Red Head Rescue" (non chartered) for stray dogs and rescue dogs from high kill shelters. We've been able to heal the many health ailments these dogs have and place them in good homes.


Dog Food Decoded - How To Choose A Health Diet For Your Dog and Your Budget - Available on Amazon in Kindle format or Paperback. Various articles for in store and web.


Certified - Canine Nutrition Level Three. Last 7 years I've been working with veterinarians, holistic veterinarians, attending seminars and best of all, real life experience with hundreds of customer dogs and cats. I've seen what works and does not work. Feeding a proper species appropriate diet works for most ailments. We've taken away our petís natural diet and caused most of todayís problems.

Awards and Honors


Past/Present Clients

Many satisfied pet owners coming to our store for nutritional help and advice.

What do you like about this subject?

We are passionate about helping people learn how to feed a proper diet so their companion animal is with them longer and to cut down on costly vet visits.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

Proper feeding and supplementation is an ongoing concern for dogs as it is for humans. Our goal is to keep updated on the many new findings.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Dogs were never meant to eat a cooked food diet. We've done this for our convenience, not for their best health.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

Vets are not trained in nutrition yet most people will listen to their vets for nutritional advice because they are an authoritative figure. We love our vets for what they do and that's medicine. I wish they would refer people to animal nutritionist for nutrition advice like our human doctors do.
