Courses & Seminars


Nutritional Therapy is a largely untapped resource in understanding canine nutrition, diet and food choices.
Blending biology with holistic approaches we can begin to see how the dogs body really works, and that whilst we spend time considering if foods or meals are ‘good’ due to whats in them it is whats not in many pets food thats really deserves our attention. The vital Nutritional Elements that make food useful to dogs.

My Nutritional Elements talk is unique, and stems from funded research that looked into exactly why dogs made improvements physically when switched to a real food diet. What exactly is different about real food to processed food and why that matters to your dogs body at both the cellular and whole body level.

I also explain the secrets (both fantastic and concerning) of the pet food industry so that you can make choices informed with truths.

This talk is aimed at:
Those with an interest in real food feeding,
Raw feeders who want to move to a deeper level of understanding
Pet owners who who wish to relieve the worry of achieving balances and complete meals each and every time.
Anyone who would like to understand why dog food is created the way it is, and whats it really the best way to feed dogs.
