Have you ever feared that the food you're putting in your dog's bowl may be contributing to chronic disease - or even shortening your dog's life?
Are you tired of jumping from dog food Brand A to Brand B back to Brand A, or attempting to make your own fresh food but feeling you don't have the proper knowledge to do it right?
Does your dog already suffer from a health condition, and you feel responsible?
It's enough to make any dedicated dog parent throw their hands up in the air in despair!
But what if you could confidently master your dog's diet and in turn give your best friend the gift of the longest, healthiest life possible?
What if you could wow your friends - and your veterinarian - with how great your dog looks and feels, even at a "ripe old doggy age"?
Thanks to the latest scientific research, we now know that diet is the single most important controllable factor determining a dog's health and longevity. This means that you have the power to shatter out-dated notions of how long your dog "should" live and help him or her achieve a FAR LONGER, vibrantly healthy life!
But so many people struggle with their dogs' diets ...until now!
Complete Canine Nutrition will guide you, step-by-step, through exactly what your dog's body needs to thrive.
You will finally gain the confidence and peace of mind that comes with knowing you have it all under control - without worrying about the latest fad doggy diet or advice from some (usually wrong) Internet "guru."
It's about looking your dog in the eye and knowing you are doing right by them....
"My 3 year-old Irish Setter, Dylan, suffered from severe gastrointestinal issues since he was a puppy. In addition, he recently had an elevated eosinophil (white blood cell) count, indicating inflammation. After just a couple of months on Diana's diet, Dylan's GI system is functioning wonderfully and his latest blood work came back perfect. And best of all the EOS levels are back to normal!"

"I have owned a health food store for dogs and cats for the past 15 years and am always continuing my education for the benefits of my clients. I have been advocating fresh foods even longer than that! I help a lot of dogs and cats get off the Rx diets that aren't necessarily helping and this course's immense wealth of information will help me make sound, science-based recommendations for them even more."
In this module, we delve into the critical relationship between food and health and lay the foundation for your dog to live a long, healthy life. You will learn about nutrigenomics, the emerging science of how the foods and other nutritional ingredients our dogs consume communicate with their cells to affect gene expression, which in turn plays a major role in determining their health. You will learn the difference between the genetic factors about your dog that you cannot change, and those that you can strongly influence. We will also delve into functional foods, key ingredients that will help your dog’s cells express for health rather than disease so that you can immediately begin to build a better diet for your canine companion.
In this Module, you will learn how energy is derived from diet, how to understand the kcal units listed on commercial pet food labels, and how to calculate your dog's metabolizable energy (ME) requirements. We will also delve into the essential macronutrients (proteins/fats/carbohydrates) and micronutrients (vitamins/minerals) that dogs need at various life stages. You will learn how to determine your dog’s individual nutrient needs, according to standards set by the National Research Council (NRC). We will also introduce the Three Keys, aimed to simplify the process of balancing your dog’s diet over time.
Protein, fat and carbohydrates are the fuel that run our dogs' bodies, but the intricacies of these macronutrients - including how much of each dogs need - trips up many people and gets in the way of building healthful, balanced diets. When you complete this Module, you will have a solid in-depth understanding of the functions of protein, fat and carbohydrates, the role of each in the canine diet, how much and the best types to feed your dog. We will also introduce our "Combine and Rotate Plan" to ensure that your dog receives a variety of different proteins, as well as some easy guidelines to follow regarding your dog’s daily protein intake. This Module covers many other critical topics, including: Which fats are the best to feed?; What is the role of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids and how to correctly balance them?; How much fat is "high fat"?; Should I feed carbohydrates to my dog?; What are the best prebiotics?; What vegetables should I give my dog?; And much more....
Now that you have a full grasp of macronutrients in the canine diet, it's time to dive into micronutrients (vitamins & minerals) essential to canine health. When you complete this Module, you will know more about the vitamin and mineral requirements of dogs than even most of the "experts"! You will have a full grasp of the functions of vitamins and minerals, how the vitamin and mineral needs of dogs differ from humans, details about each vitamin and mineral, including consequences of deficiency, potential for toxicity and dietary sources of each nutrient. You will also have access to your own automated Excel-based "Cheat Sheet" to quickly and easily determine any dog's precise nutrient requirements based on the National Research Council's Recommended Daily Intake.
Here's where it gets REALLY fun! This Module is jam-packed with everything you need to know to get In the Kitchen and preparing rock-star healthy meals for your dog's optimum health and vitality! We are firm believers that you CAN do it — and do it well — with the right tools and information! In this Module, you will learn how to use the Three Keys, along with our Combine and Rotate Plan, to create nutritionally balanced home-prepared meals for your dog. You will learn how much of each food group to include, as well as precise supplementation for cooked diets, to ensure that all of your dog’s nutritional needs are met. Prefer to feed raw? We've got you covered! In this Module, you will uncover everything you need to know to feed a healthy raw diet, including what kind and how much bone to feed, the best sources of meat for raw diets, the proper ratio of ingredients, all about calcium and phosphorus and much more!
Prefer to feed commercial dog food or combine commercial with home-prepared? No problem! In this Module, we've got you covered with showing you how to select the best commercial food for your canine companion. Whether you feed kibble or commercial raw, you will learn how to cut through commercial food hype and drill down into what's really important - proper ingredients and nutrient balance to achieve optimum health. You will become seasoned at decoding dog food labels so that you are never again fooled by marketing hype. You will also learn how to select the best dry food for your dog. And, if you feed any commercial raw food, you may be stunned to realize that your food may not be truly balanced - even when it claims to be! Our Activity Supplement to this lesson will walk you through everything you need to know to evaluate commercial raw foods for proper balance. This alone could mean the difference between your dog receiving the proper nutrients to thrive or coming up nutritionally short.
You won’t finish this program without knowing exactly what to do next. In this Module, we address a different kind of balance – the balance of feeding your dog the best diet possible without draining your wallet or your time. We provide several useful tips for realistically integrating your dog’s new diet plan into your lifestyle. We also recommend some handy tools and ingredients to stock in your kitchen, as well as some resources to find them, so that you can be the best possible healthcare advocate to your best friend!

Question #4: How long on average will it take for me to see results with my dog's health?
