Hello all; just wanted to offer up my time if you have any questions about sporting dogs or food, etc. A brief overview of my company: We have been around over 8 years now and our formulas have been derived from working with sled dogs for about 20 years. I have 36 dogs myself and have competed in many races in the States, Alaska(they consider themselves a separate country), Canada and Europe. Our foods were built from first hand experiences of correct feeding programs to maximize the potentials of the dogs through nutrition as what I saw on the market was not working with out all sorts of tweaking. I got very tired of having to tweak the diet to eliminate stress diarrhea, for example.
We looked at what worked best, analyzed it and made it into a kibble. I have worked the Iditarod as a vet numerous times, ran it and have fed tons of feed over the years. Developed first in my garage we then took our formula and it took 6 plants to find the right place to produce the food. That was a huge learning curve, to say the least. We supply many kennels out there, including the kennel that won the Iditarod last year but also many field trial kennels. Proper nutrition based on the metabolic needs of the dog leads to some pretty amazing performances.
As a vet it is very satisfying as I am still a full time practicing small animal doctor in Michigan.
So, please ask away and I will be happy to share knowledge as best I can.
