Sing the Praises!

When we got our Rhodesian Ridgeback, Layla, my mom (the breeder) was upset with me that I wasn’t going to feed her a “Large Breed Puppy Food”. We raised our Australian Shepherd, Aurora, on CANIDAE with awesome results, so we saw no reason NOT to feed it to Layla! When we switched Layla to CANIDAE, off of Science Diet Large Breed pup we failed at the gradual change. We tried to mix the two together, but Layla would just pick out all the CANIDAE and leave the Science Diet scattered all over the floor! Layla is now 5 months old and growing wonderfully! We couldn’t be happier! Her coat is shiny and soft, her eyes bright, and her bones are growing at just the right rate! I was warned that large breed pups can grow in such a way that they look out of proportion at times. Large breeds are also notorious for problems with bone growth. Not our Layla! She is in perfect proportion! We can’t wait to get her in the show ring!
Attached are a few pictures of our baby girl!

I have a brag that I believe will interest you greatly

welshieOur Welsh Springer Spaniel “Dillon”, Ch. Glyndwr’s Winchester Legacy recently went “Best In Specialty” / “Best Veteran” / “Best Veteran in Sweepstakes” at the Welsh Springer Spaniel Club of America (WSSCA) National Specialty Show, Friday April 29th at Lake Matthews CA.

Dillon was the oldest dog at the specialty at 12 years. Quite an accomplishment for an “OLD GEEZER” who had been retired from showing for 5 years!

The judges for the specialty were very complimentary concerning Dillon’s “fitness”, appearance, beautiful coat quality, and “soundness”. He still moves like a 3year old in his prime! In fact one judge stated: “If he’s this good now, he must have been absolutely fantastic when he was “specialed”. During his prime, Dillon was top winning WSS for the years 1996 and 1999…he was in the top 3 for 1997 and 1998. He had won “awards of merit” at previous WSSCA nationals and at “Spaniel Club” shows.

Now if you’re still with me after my brag, the reason I bring all of this to your attention is that Dillon eats CANIDAE EXCLUSIVELY! While you’ll agree that breeding, conditioning and training are extremely important to a show dog’s career, it is my contention that without the nutritional support of CANIDAE…I might not be sending you this letter. I was in the pet industry for 20+ years, and owned 2 retail pet supply stores of my own before CANIDAE came on the market. I do know something about dog food. With Dillon’s winning record, believe me I have access to any food I choose to feed. I chose CANIDAE after seeing the beautiful coats on a very close friend’s Welshies, the best coat color and quality I had ever seen, and made the switch soon after. That was about 4 years ago. The results speak for themselves. He has gorgeous coat, fluid easy movement, and at 12 years old…he is pretty much problem free!

Anyway, thanks for listening, and thanks for a great food for my best friend!

I wanted to tell you how fabulous your CANIDAE All Life Stage is!

It has literally made feeding my two dogs a peaceful experience.
I have a 14-year-old beagle mix that has a malignant brain tumor and is rather inactive. I recently got a sweet lanradoodle puppy that is now 4 and 1/2 months old. At mealtime it seemed as though the dogs were playing musical chairs! Britt wanted the puppy food, Dharma wanted the ‘brain function diet food’ (bah!) and it was not an easy chore to keep them separate.
The local feed mill here in Lebanon, PA suggested CANIDAE All Life Stage and I began to gradually switch their food – BOTH can eat the same food and I can be sure they are both getting what they need.
Britt and Dharma LOVE CANIDAE and I tell everyone who has a multi-generational dog household about it and I never fail to mention that (maybe it’s in my head, I am not sure) that Britt seems actually more ALERT and peppy these days! I am thrilled with this food!
By the way, my hubby likes it too – not only is it less expensive that the other ‘best’ brands, but he’s picking up less doggie doo before he mows the lawn!
Thanks for developing such a fabulous product!

The Best Food on the Market

Me-&-the-Kids-Thank-You-(2)I really don’t know how to start out this email, I have so much to say! I have been feeding CANIDAE for a little over three years now and I have to say it is probably the best food on the market. I have three Dobermans (a 1yr old, 2yr old & 4yr old) which I train, and it is so convenient to feed them all one food! You also don’t lie at all about the coat conditioners. I have people ask me all the time what I use to make my dogs so shiny and I tell them it’s the food! I also wear my CANIDAE T-Shirt to a lot of my obedience trials, hoping maybe people will ask me about it. …

Ava-&-Wryley-Small-(2)…My male Dobie had so many skin problems when I got him that he was developing large bumps all over his body. His previous owner was feeding him a VERY low quality food (she should have just fed him whole corn the way she was feeding him) and complained about how picky he was. As soon as I whipped out the CANIDAE he was all over it! His skin problems have also gone away. A few weeks ago I convinced a woman to switch her Newfoundland… to CANIDAE because her dog had very dry, scaly skin. Just the other day she came into the store and almost hugged me because she was so thankful for showing her your food! Our store usually gets 2 or more pallets (50 or so bags per pallet) of CANIDAE in at a time and we just fly through them. There are many breeders in our area that are on your breeder program. It is great how you use these promotions to get your food out there. (I especially love the MANY coupons!)

The main point of this email was to say thank you for making such a wonderful product that actually DOES do what the bag says in keeping our pets (family members) healthy and happy.

Thank you.

More Power to CANIDAE

CANIDAE All Life Stages Formula is the best! I’ve never been more satisfied with a pet food product before. In comparison with other brands like Eukanuba, Science Diet, and Pedigree, your product is much, much more superior! CANIDAE made my dogs more active and vibrant. Aside from their healthy coats, they’ve become more healthy and active. I love it. I love your product!

They like it. A lot.

I recently purchased a 4lb. bag of FELIDAE Platinum dry food for my cats. Yesterday I began gradually introducing it into their diet by mixing it with their regular food. They like it. A lot. I had your food stored in a large Tupperware canister, one which I am having a hard time imaging my cats being able to get into without having opposable thumbs. Regardless of my lack of imagination in this matter, my boyfriend came home from work earlier this evening to discover the lid of the canister on the floor, and evidence that the cats had eaten a quantity of food. I am greatly, and it scarcely needs to be said, favorably impressed with how much my cats are enjoying it. Tupperware may be getting a somewhat less enthusiastic letter from me soon.

I will never have to browse the labels again

When I got my first dog (Ivy) years ago I was faced with a world of choices at the pet store. I wanted the best for her, but with so many options it was difficult to know where to begin to find the highest quality food and treats.

IvyHazelTreatSitLuckily a kind gentleman who saw me scrutinizing the ingredients labels of the bags of dried food pointed out CANIDAE. One glance and I realized this gentleman saved me a lot of time and energy. I have been using it exclusively for 4 years now. Yet, the story doesn’t end there… although I’ve been tempted by the flashy looks and promises of other brands, none of them have maintained the ingredient standards of your product and I remain happily loyal to CANIDAE.

I am now feeding CANIDAE to a second dog that I recently adopted (Hazel), and I am confident that this decision will be reflected in a lifetime of good health for her too. Hazel is one of many foster dogs I’ve taken in for a local rescue group, and luckily for them, CANIDAE is the product I fed each one while in my care. Despite all of the reasons a stray might be too upset to have an appetite, they all had a hearty interest in CANIDAE. Hopefully they are still enjoying it in their new homes, because I walked each individual at the adoption events over to the area where CANIDAE is on display at the pet store, recommending that they continue the same healthy diet for their new addition. Thank you for understanding that our dogs are not merely pets, but family members. Responsible owners should look for the same quality foods for their animals as they would for any other loved one. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate how easy CANIDAE makes that for us. I will never have to browse the labels again as long as you keep up the good work!

With gratitude,

gracieGracie loves the snap biscuits – she’s learned the word “cookie” and runs to the cabinet when I tell her she’s going to get one. I just got the canned food to put in her Kong when I am at work. I am so glad I didn’t have to play “musical foods” until I found the right one for her. Her coat is smooth and silky!

Her allergies disappeared

allergiesGracie Hi, I just wanted to let you know how satisfied I am with CANIDAE. I am a current owner of a Miniature Pinscher, Ciara. Within the first week of purchasing Ciara from her breeder, I noticed her itchy, watery eyes, runny nose, and flaky skin. At the time, I was feeding her Strong Point puppy food, that was given to me from her breeder. After a Vet visit, they had told me that Ciara suffered from food allergies. Right away I tried other puppy foods like Eukanuba, Iams, and Science Diet. Nothing seemed to stop her symptoms. I finally did my own research online and came across CANIDAE. When I read the ingredients list I was amazed to finally find a food with no corn, wheat, soy, or by-products. Ciara is now 7 months old and everywhere I take her, I get asked ‘how come your dog’s coat is so shiny?’. She has no more flaky skin, watery eyes or runny nose; it’s like her allergies disappeared! Also, it’s more convenient because we have (2) five-year old Tiny Toy Poodles, and a one-year old White German Shepherd, and they can all eat the same food! I recommend this food to all my fellow Dog Lovers! Attached is a photo of my gorgeous, healthy, and shiny Min Pin!

Thanks, Sarah

Since the very first bowl everything changed!

Just a quick note to let you how much our 2 year old Sheltie, Jasmine, loves CANIDAE! When my wife and I first got her as a puppy we grabbed a bag of another brand of food and didn’t think anything about it. But shortly after that our puppy was having stomach problems and very loose stools. A friend of ours mentioned that she uses CANIDAE and we found a local feed store that carried it. Since the very first bowl everything changed! Our dog’s eyes are bright and glassy, her coat is soft and shiny and her intestinal health is excellent. Even our vet was impressed. (They told us all dog foods are the same.) Thank you so much for making such an important product. I only wish more people knew about you!

Thanks again!

CANIDAE is incredible!!

aatysapjBefore using CANIDAE, my dogs had dry and dull coats, runny eyes, and seemed like they didn’t have the energy levels that young dogs should have. I switched to CANIDAE almost a year ago, and the difference this food makes is incredible. Their coats are amazing, I’ve never felt Rottweilers coats that were as soft or look as shiny. The dry and dull coats of the past are gone. Their eyes are clear and seem to sparkle now, on top of which their energy levels have boosted. The overall results are just astounding, my dogs are much healthier, and much happier! In turn, so am I. It didn’t take long to see start seeing results either. Even during the gradual transition, I noticed things improving. Not only that, the dogs absolutely love it! During the transition stage, they’d actually pick out the CANIDAE first, and then eat the other brand when there was nothing else left. I’ve done nothing but rave on about what a great food this is. I’ve had numerous people comment on my dogs, and asked me what I feed, as well as telling friends and family about it. CANIDAE is awesome! Such an amazing product. So glad to finally see a food available that isn’t crammed with fillers. :)

Thanks a bunch from Tysa, PJ and me!
