What to feed:
Food is extremely critical in all that we do, there are some great choices out there, your pup has been fed a raw diet, and a premium quality food. We feed Life’s Abundance, All Life’s Stages food to our puppies. This ensures a healthy skin, coat, proper growth and nutrition from the balance of various vitamins, probiotics, proteins and fats. It will be shipped directly to your front door. There is additional information on ordering under the nutrition tab.

For treats we love to use string cheese and little pieces of boiled chicken. We also love the chew sticks from LA and the buffalo lungs. When researching foods, we recommend visiting The Dog Food Advisor.
