Benefits of Raw Feeding…

Cleaner teeth and healthy gums: You will learn that raw meat and bones do not allow for plaque to build up. The crunching of small bones by your dog naturally provides scraping for his teeth. Raw bones are easily digested and they are good a source of calcium and roughage for cleaning the teeth and gums naturally. On the other hand, canned dog food consists of highly processed food with added fat and preservatives, which will most likely cause plaque.

 

Keep extra weight off: Raw diet ensures that your dog stays lean and strong, and lean dogs live longer. High protein raw diets will help your dog lose weight without losing muscle mass. On a high raw protein diet, approximately a seventh of the weight loss will be muscle and about 85% of the weight loss will be fat. The bottom line is that to maintain your dog’s muscles, his body needs protein. Raw diet helps you improve your dog’s feeling of fullness, so your dog is less of a food pest when dieting, and it should be easier to keep him lean. Lean dogs live longer, have stronger immune systems, and have lower blood pressure.

 

Improved muscle strength and stability: The tearing, shredding and meaty bone crushing activity that comes with raw diet is helpful in building up strength in your dog’s neck, jaws, shoulder, and back muscles. Raw dog diet lifestyle’s increased activity will strengthen your dog skeletal as well as heart muscles, which enhances cardiovascular functioning and improves balance and flexibility. The bones and natural cartilage in the diet will grow your dog strong bones and healthy joints.

 

Lower risk of cancer: Your dog is less likely to get cancer if he is fed on a raw diet. Consumption of raw green vegetables is essentially important for dogs that eat dry foods. Dry foods are predisposed to aflatoxin contamination. Despite the fact that smaller amounts of aflatoxin are considered normal in the grains used for dog foods, green vegetables can significantly help offset the contamination element’s negative effects. Green vegetables are composed of chlorophyll, which is known to delay the onset of signs of liver cancer caused from the consumption of aflatoxin-contaminated grains. Make sure to balance the fats and complete your dog’s nutrition with fresh foods.

 

Better digestion and improved stool quality: When you give your dog raw food, he starts to eat by working on his jaws and teeth on the meaty bones and fleshy meat. Your dog will eat slowly, providing himself with full enjoyment. As he continues to chew, more gastric juice is secreted so that the food can be digested properly. Firmer as well as smaller stools with less smell are produced by your dog after consuming a raw diet. Your dog’s stool may contain powdery white material from bones, which is absolutely normal. Better digestion leads to small and firm stool, which generally improves your dog nutrient absorption.

 

Better eye health: When you feed your dog raw diet from a young age, he will have fewer eye problems as he grows old. In order to maintain good eye health, a raw diet with balanced fats will improve your dog’s retina. The amount of fat, protein, and carbs based upon a raw diet will provide your dog with essential antioxidants among other nutrients known to protect the eyes. These may include vitamins D and E, lutein from egg yolks, and zinc. The sardines and oysters in the raw diet provide a natural source of zinc. Ideally, a raw diet provides your dog with naturally balanced nutrition.

Does your pet suffer from itchy skin and allergies?

Raw foods have been shown to dramatically cut down on itchy skin and allergies. 

The ingredients often found in kibble (dry food) lead to allergies in our pets.  Sometimes it’s not the meat itself, but the foods that are fed to the beef, chickens etc.

We have a variety of raw food proteins, so if your pet is allergic to something, you can feed a different meat.

How much do I feed my pet?

You will need to feed about 16 ounces of raw food each day for each 50 pounds of your dog’s weight. In case your dog doesn’t quite tip the scales at 50 pounds, or if he weighs more than 50 pounds, here are some general guidelines to follow:

  • Owners of toy breeds that weigh between 7 and 15 pounds: 4 to 8 ounces of raw food each day
  • Owners of small breeds that weigh between 15 and 25 pounds: 8 to 12 ounces of raw food each day
  • Owners of medium-sized breeds that weigh between 25 and 50 pounds: 12 to 16 ounces of raw food each day
  • Owners of large breeds that weigh between 50 and 75 pounds: 16 to 24 ounces of raw food each day
  • Owners of giant breeds that weigh between 75 and 100 pounds: 28 to 32 ounces of raw food each day

 

We can help you determine the exact amount of food needed for your pet.

I first met Patty Lance when I needed help in training my two very young, exuberant Golden Retrievers. Patty’s passion for dogs radiates from her. I’ve watched her countless times, with her characteristically unflappable calm wisdom, maintain control over situations involving several dogs of varying heights, weights, and energy levels. In fact, I believe she may even have a sixth sense in being able to read what a mischievous dog’s next move is going to be even before he does it! So when I found out she also operated Nana-n-Paws Doggy Daycare and Sleepover Center, I was ecstatic. I had never left my “boys” overnight or boarded with anyone. I mean, we all have hopes, wishes, and expectations of whom we would wish to entrust our fur kids to, right? My personal wish list: I don’t “crate” my Goldens and I appreciate someone who believes that dogs have individual needs and that they shouldn’t all be lumped together. I want my dogs to receive firm but loving care. I always envision the perfect center to have space with lots of playtime for my dogs with others of equal energy. And, of course, I expect my dogs to be fiercely protected from harm. When my dogs are in Patty’s care, I find all these are met and more. I highly recommend Nana-n-Paws Doggy Daycare and Sleepover Center for your dogs. Oh, and if you’re having a specific behavioral issue with your dog and need some great advice or assistance, Patty’s many years of training experience can be invaluable in helping you turn things around. So whether I’m dropping off my “kids” for a day of play while I’m at work or on sleepovers when I’m out of town, my mind is at rest knowing they’re having a great time at Nana-n-Paws Doggy Daycare and Sleepover Center. My only worry when Mac and Rusty stay at Nana’s? That when I stop by to pick them up, they won’t want to come home with me!

Meet Cooper, our now six month old Golden Retriever. My husband and I knew from the day we got Cooper that we wanted to train him properly (like every dog should be). We set out to find the perfect trainer! My husband found Patty through a co-worker. WOW! What a great find! Cooper started classes at 11 weeks old and continued personal training (at our house) for six weeks. Without Patty as our trainer, we don’t think we could have trained him on our own. She taught us that patience is the key to successful dog training and she made herself readily available for any questions or concerns that we had about Cooper. Hands down Patty is the best dog trainer that we know of in the area and we would recommend her to anyone. Cooper loves her and is very excited to be started on the next stage of dog training with her. Thank you, Patty for all your hard work and dedication as we train our Cooper to be the best dog we’ve ever had in our family!

I have been working with Patty Lance for about a year now. My husband and I adopted a Welsh Corgi, Bella, from a rescue and she came with more issues than we had bargained for. Our dog had very severe separation anxiety, along with issues with the blinds, the trash and keys. Patty came to my house for on site training and within a couple of weeks we saw a complete turnaround with Bella. She was finally bearable to live with…it was like she had a visit from the dog whisperer! Not only has Patty helped make our house more pleasant, she also has provided us with freedom and peace of mind when going out of town. When we have to leave our furry babies, Patty is the only person I trust to leave them with. I know that when they are with her, it’s like they are at home. She is the most loving, trustworthy, reliable person available to watch anyone’s dog! She truly treats them like one of the family. I highly recommend Patty to anyone who is looking to train or board their dog. She’s just so good a what she does!
