Have you ever wondered why your dog’s breath or body has that distinctive “doggie smell?” It is generally caused by your dog ingesting chemicals and preservatives, rather then an all natural homemade dog food diet. Just by changing your dog’s diet, you will likely see a much healthier, more energetic and less odorous dog. I see and smell it for myself in my two Labradors


We’re all concerned that we do what’s best for our pets when it comes to buying food, right?! But sometimes it seems that the “best” dog food is simply unaffordable.
