Diet-Only Consultations

Nutritional consultations are individually customized for all special needs and age groups and are delivered either in electronic format (email) or hardcopy (mail). Please specify if Standard or Organic-Only is preferred. Note that supplement products are not always available as organic versions.

Premium Feeding Plan

The cost for the Premium Feeding Plan is the same, regardless whether you prefer a cooked, raw or combination diet.

A minimum of 4 weeks of extended email support is required so I can help you settle into the new routine comfortably and we can "troubleshoot" any issues as they arise - this includes the reformulation of a recipe if needed.

  • Premium Feeding Plan plus 4 weeks: $155.00 per dog
    For dogs without special needs 4 weeks of support is usually plenty to let you confidently prepare and feed a homemade diet.
  • Premium Feeding Plan plus 8 weeks: $235.00 per dog
    For dogs with food allergies or sensitivities, or other special needs, or for people who are not skilled in the kitchen and have little to no experience preparing food, 8 weeks give us extra time to work on all the aspects of your new endeavor.
  • Premium Feeding Plan plus 12 weeks: $295.00 per dog
    The 12 week time frame lets you take advantage of the greatest discount for one-on-one guidance and benefits individuals recovering from severe health problems or those with chronic conditions.

What's included?

  • A fully home prepared, fresh-food diet (choice of cooked, raw, or combination), individually designed and balanced for your dog, according to the newest nutritional guidelines of the National Research Council (2006)
  • Nutritional Supplements to complement fresh foods
  • Extended Email Support to address all your questions and concerns, and allow for making adjustments to the initial feeding plan, if needed.

Basic Feeding Plan

Due to so many people feeling insecure about the recent Pet Food Recalls, I am temporarily offering this consultation option at a discount.

  • Basic Feeding Plan only, no support: $40.00 $27.00 per dog
    For dogs without special needs and experienced owners booking this consultation without email follow-up is usually fine.
  • Basic Feeding Plan plus 2 weeks: $85.00 $75.00 per dog
    For dogs with special needs, people who would like to go beyond just the very basic steps of improving their dog’s diet, or owners who are not confident about making changes on their own, I recommend this option so I can help you settle into the new routine comfortably and we can ‘troubleshoot’ any issues and work out all the wrinkles. This option also offers the greatest discount for one-on-one guidance.

What's included?

  • Diet Suggestions based on commercial dry and/or canned dog food
  • Basic Nutritional Supplements
