We live in a world where we have been conditioned to accept that processed pieces of kibble are healthier for our dogs than a species appropriate diets however, Science is coming to the rescue to prove the dogs natural diet is what is best for them and now you can learn how to incorporate this into your dogs diet even if you're not ready to go fully natural.

Nutritional Consults

Our Nutritional consults are conducted in person or online via Zoom.

During this consult, we will answer all your questions the best we can, learn about your current dog's diet and needs and provide nutritional advice.

If requested, we can provide you with a complete and balanced recipe to AAFCO or FEDIAF guidelines, however, we prefer the B.A.R.F style of feeding which is more realistic, relaxed and focusses on balancing over time by feeding a variety of ingredients over time vs complete and balanced to kibble guidelines (AAFCO & FEDIAF) in every meal.

We do not conduct clinical nutrition, therefore if your dog has a medical condition that you are trying to address, we will refer you on.

Consults are around 30 minutes and start from $35.00.

Book a Nutritional Consult by heading to our booking page.

We are qualified, accredited and insured Nutritional Consultants.
