Choosing the Best Commercial Dog Food

Sadly buying dog food is usually a crap shoot. That's not good enough for me and it shouldn't be for you either. That's why I'm here.

In this course you'll learn everything important there is to know about commercial foods and you can bet I'll share what I've learned from the experts.

Wouldn't you like to know what a 20 year veteran of dog food formulation has to say? How about someone who has spent years researching the actual process of making dog food, been allowed inside production facilities and has accessed the real laws about ingredients?

Stick with me so you understand the tricks of the trade and be able to see clearly what is best for your dog by the time you finish this course.

And to help with your busy schedule, there's a downloadable audio version inside so you can learn on the go.


Look, food is the cornerstone of health. Without the right choices, your dog will spend more time at the vets than he needs to. And no matter how many antibiotics or anti-inflammatories your dog takes, he's just not going to be healthy on the inside.

You need to know what those ingredients really are on the label so you know what you're choosing. Here are just 3 of the things found commonly in dog food we are not aware of because of their fancy or scientific names.

  • a rubber stabilizer created for tires
  • a weed pre-emergent
  • chalk

If you choose not to take this course, I still want you to have a few very important tips. Please share these with everyone you can:

Keep Kibble from Turning Toxic

Kibble can and does go rancid (bad) making it toxic. To avoid that:

  1. Never buy a bag of dog food that has been opened and then taped shut
  2. Never pour a bag of dog food into another container to keep it fresh. That simple act of pouring, exposes all the kibble to the air long enough that it begins to go rancid. Instead keep it in the bag and put the whole bag into a resealable container.
  3. Use a bag of kibble within 2 weeks 

Watch out for Fish

Never buy dry dog food with fish, fish oil, fish meal or omega 3. The first 3 are more likely than not to come from China where they've been treated with a toxic preservative not allowed in most countries (and legally does not appear on the ingredient label). Omega 3 goes rancid too quickly to be of use in food. Add a good source separately.

General Tips

Never buy low fat dog food (fat doesn't make them fat, carbs do)

Always add water TO THE KIBBLE before serving. The body cannot process it without water so uses fluids within the body causing dehydration for 90 minutes after each meal and damaging kidneys.

And here's a fun fact. The first commercial dog food was not created by a veterinarian, a nutritionist, a scientist or even a dog owner. It was created by a Salesman.

As always, I love serving your dog through you,

P.S.  Please, never put off gaining knowledge that directly affects your dog's life and health. I don't want you to be like those who contact me. What are some of the comments I've received?

"If only I had known."

"I wish I knew this before I spent $3,000 at the vet. It would have saved both money and my dog's health"


P.P.S. If you want to learn A LOT MORE for a great price, you can take my bundled course called "The Vital Components to Real Dog Health" which is 8 classes in one  and includes a whopping 8 hours of audio.
