For about the last 14 years we adopted a natural life style as much as possible. This includes feeding a raw prey model diet to the dogs, limited vaccinations, no pesticide/flea/tick poisons on the dogs or in their vicinity and as always lots of healthy exercise for mind and body, which includes outings by themselves, with other dogs, training, socializing, fun and games and more.

Puppies are weaned onto raw food and are born inside my home and will grow up with lots of handling and will be exposed to daily activities in and around the house. We put up a large play yard with lots of toys, obstacles and tunnels to crawl around. By the time they leave here they are mostly house trained. I also will take them individual out to different places by the age of 7 weeks.

I am conservative with medical treatment and will do lots of research before committing to conventional medicine. Most likely my dogs will be treated with homeopathy or other alternative medicine.

Allessa almost 14 years old. She still went on good one hour walks with no problems. But about 10 month later she started to be in lots of pain from osteo sarcoma in her front leg and I had to let her go.
