Ingredients What Are They?

Sign Up for your Pet Food Ingredient Breakdown!

As a Trainer I have watched, studied, and broke down body language for 11 years now. Hyperactivity, impulsive behaviors, and re activeness can be genetic, breed specific or  80% is due to their diet.

When food is a question in behavior during training my Client’s ask, “What do you recommend?” So I started a Journal and a Journey about dog food ingredients. Believe me it is a long and never ending Journey.


There is so much on the market why? The pet industry in the ONLY industry that is not affect by recession.

                             “Americans are spending more on their pets than ever before, and expenditures

                              continue to rise. By 2020, the U.S. pet industry is expected to reach $96 billion in

                              sales, according to Packaged Facts, a leading market research firm.”

                                                                                                                                             Market Research
