We started Active Dawg after our rescue dog, Sophie suffered heatstroke, and a few months later while playing with her dog pals, “popped” her back knee.
These ‘experiences’ and the resulting $1,000+ vet bills said there had to be a better way.
Knowing that our own nutrition drove the quality of our lives, eliminated and prevented various diseases we began investigating what we could add to her diet that would help with both joint health, prevent dehydration, prevent the occasional bouts of soft stools and diarrhea and help her coat and skin.
That led us to slow cooking for over 24 hours of organic chicken bones and grinding peanuts. Sophie loved her new treats and we saw an immediate difference in her ability to run and pivot with her fur buddy friends.
Her desire to actually drink water during and after play dates or trips to the dog park. And the occasional bouts of loose stools literally disappeared.
Her coat and skin are far healthier today as you can see in the picture.
We then started sharing our homemade products with her playdate friends and 4-legged neighbors, whose parents told us they couldn’t believe the difference in their dogs. By just mixing a serving size with water and adding it to their dogs’ food, they emptied the bowl and their health improved over several weeks.
This experience leads us to bring Active Dawg to the market to share the wholesome goodness of Active Dawg “Natural” Chicken Bone Broth and Peanut Butter for other dogs to experience the same health benefits.
