Our beloved dogs should be given the same care and attention to well-being and diet as we give – or we’d like to give – ourselves. And whilst we at least have the ability to feed and nourish ourselves – healthy or otherwise – sadly our furry friends don’t have that luxury.
They rely on us to take care of them, from pup to senior age.
The right nutrition and overall well-being at every stage of their life is vital to ensure they are healthy and happy … and that you don’t miss out on all those doggy licks of appreciation!
Eat Wag Play came about from my love of ‘(wo)man’s best friend’. To give practical advice and tips to ensure your dog’s well-being is met.
So, I decided to do an about-turn careerwise and pursue a dream of working alongside them by re-training as a Canine Nutritionist studying with the globally respected Companion Animal Sciences Institute. The training I received truly opened my eyes to…
- how much bad advice there is out there
- the complexity of each dog’s individual needs
- how we think we’re feeding our dogs well, but actually we could be (unintentionally) causing them great harm
Because just like us, dogs are unique.
Treat your dog well and you’ll be rewarded with boundless energy, love and a lifetime of happiness.
The love of a dog is a pure thing. He gives you a trust which is total. You must not betray it.
But of course it’s not just their nutritional needs that must be met.
My aim – besides helping ensure that dogs the world-over are rewarded with good food so they can enjoy a full and happy life – is to share information, advice and tips to maximise their well-being. From health concerns, vaccinations, nutrition, and supplements, to canine enrichment, toys, supplies and accessories.
But remember, what works for one dog, may not work for another. So experiment until you see your dog’s coat is glossy, his eyes sparkly, and his energy plentiful.
I also want to make it clear that whilst I’ve graduated in Canine Nutrition and continue to advance my learning in behavioral science, canine fitness, and canine well-being, I am not a qualified vet. If you are concerned about the health of your dog, whilst nutrition may be the answer, I strongly urge you to visit your vet before seeking information and advice elsewhere.
