REVOLUTIONARY

CANINE NUTRITION

Real food can add years to your dog's life!

Keeping canines natural is key to a healthy dog. This begins with a species appropriate fresh diet.

What you fuel your dogs with is the most important decision that you can make for them. Nutrition never comes from a bag of denatured kibble no matter how premium it claims to be. Kibble diets are horrific. Especially for breeding dogs. I create custom raw nutrition plans energetically matched for each dog. Canine nutrition is my ultimate passion and I really enjoy creating plans for dogs that suffer from allergies.

Canine Nutrition & Wellness Plans

$150-$350

Starter plans to complex plans and everything in between

Breeding programs starting at $500

Proud retailer for IRON WILL RAW. The safest and best raw food on the market. Please contact me for orders. HACCP certified. To achieve HACCP certification, a manufacturer must operate at the highest standards in food safety, quality, traceability and accountability.

ABOUT THE OWNER

"MAKE YOUR DREAMS HAPPEN"

"The Journey Of Life Is Sweeter When Travelled With A Dog"

I work with dogs because I love it! They are magnificent creatures and true friends. I couldn't envision my life without them. I have been working professionally with canines since 2010. Running my own business for several years now has been an incredible journey. I dedicated 5 years combined volunteer work at The Ottawa Humane Society and local dog rescues and will continue to donate my time for animals. I've fostered several dogs, cats and small critters. I specialize in canine psychology & nutrition. I passionately teach people about canine behaviour, proper diet & wellness. My dream to create a small naturally reared breeding program of working line German Shepherds will come true and take place at my beautiful acreage in Nova Scotia. 

​I am an avid volunteer in my community and have proudly contributed to CHEO, Good Dog Rescue, Ottawa Humane Society, Canadian Parks And Wilderness Society (CPAWS), The Canadian Cancer Society, The Ottawa Food Bank, The City of Ottawa, Rideau Valley Conservation Authority, Ottawa Riverfest, Winterlude, Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival, The Elizabeth Fry Society, Correctional Service Canada, H.O.P.E. Volleyball, OCDC, Watson's Mill, The Salvation Army, National Capital Commission, Ottawa Bluesfest, etc.

I earned my psychology and law degree as well as a couple of college diplomas. I have trained rigorously, taken hundreds of canine courses over the years and continue my education daily. More importantly, I have a high level of experience working hands-on with a variety of breeds and behaviours as well as helping people from all walks of life. I hold multiple certifications, acute canine homeopathy emergency course, outstanding references, police check and federal government security clearance. I am pet first aid certified.

GLOWING TESTIMONIALS

Chantelle Sokoll
Manotick

I had adopted a German Shepherd a few years ago when she was already an adult. She had been my first dog ever and at the time I hadn't been properly advised about her behavioural issues. After adopting her I learnt Athena is a sweet girl once she knows and trusts someone, but is aggressive towards other dogs with a very high prey drive. Over the past few years I have been able to work with her on trusting people and accepting them into our lives. However, her dog aggression was quite bad and often there was nothing I could do. I felt totally helpless and very anxious about it. Meeting Bronwyn and working with her with Athena has been nothing short of what feels like a miracle to me. After years of avoiding dogs on our walks and having anxiety even going out, Bronwyn has been able to help give me more confidence on walks, but also allow Athena the opportunity to work on her own aggression. Something I never thought would happen has already started with being able to do parallel dog walks with Athena. Bronwyn has been able to give me the knowledge, confidence, and training necessary to start treating Athena's dog aggression through controlled dog walks and socialization. I cannot thank her enough. Although it's still very early and a long way to go, I have already seen improvements in Athena I didn't think I'd ever see. Through slowly getting her familiarwith specific dogs in a controlled setting she has already shown improvement in just a matter of a few weeks. I'm proud to say I can also walk Athena now without the extreme anxiety I had felt before worrying about her aggression. Bronwyn has been absolutely amazing. She's extremely knowledgeable and understanding. She has helped Athena and I make progress I'll never forget. Been such a positive experience! I cannot wait to continue to work with her and see Athena continue to overcome her challenges as well! Thank you SO much Bronwyn!

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

He is phenomenal. Pterodactyl is a natural protection dog. He's not welcoming of strangers but is well-behaved being out in high traffic areas. He loves solid dogs. He is a confident, dominant, protective, intense, territorial and very challenging male. He's sweet and affectionate with the ones he loves. Pterodactyl is fearless. He excels at bite work, tracking, protection and obedience. He also enjoys agility and swimming. His favourite word is play. His border patrol duties are exceptional. He has a high energy level and is always up for fun adventures and different challenges.

IMG_3021_edited.jpg

Boston was a beautiful black and tan German Shepherd male weighing in at 130 lbs! I adopted him from The Ottawa Humane Society in May of 2016 at age 5. Boston was quite sick when I met him but I was still hoping to have him for many years. Sadly, he passed away 11 months later from liver disease which left me absolutely crushed but also sent me on a mission to keep canines natural. I am so thankful that I got him out of that shelter and gave him the best year of his life. He passed knowing he was loved immensely, compassionately cared for and treated with respect. We had a lot of fun together and he taught me valuable lessons. He was a calm boy and sweet with people however Boston had dangerous dog aggression issues which led to him being surrendered to OHS. He made tremendous progress with me in the short time we had together. I miss him every day. Boston was strong, courageous, considerate, loyal, protective and such a joy to spend time with. He enjoyed his three daily walks, playing ball, visiting friends, car rides and swim time. Boston loved children. He was such a special friend and I miss him very much.

Bailey swimming.jpeg

Bailey was the greatest gift of my life. He was 11 months old when my dad found him for me in Stewiacke, Nova Scotia. I was 16 years old and wanted either a German Shepherd or a Rottweiler. I ended up with the two breeds in one. Bailey completely changed my life. I grew up having many dogs, cats, bunnies, birds, reptiles and tons of other pets but Bailey was the most precious of all. He was by far the best dog to ever walk this earth. He was that perfect dog that everyone dreams of having. He had such a wonderful life. Bailey was majestic! He lived to be 15 years old. He loved people and other animals, especially my orange-winged Amazon parrot Topaz. He was amazing with children and babies. He was smart, loyal, strong, adventurous and gentle. He was my very best friend. I think about him and miss him each day. I wish I could have him back. We had so much fun together. His favourite activities were swimming and running through our forest out east. He loved The Atlantic Ocean!

Pengy & 21.JPG

Penguin aka The Penguinator was a beautiful and intelligent European Doberman. He was a big boy weighing in at 120 lbs. He was a superior guard/protection dog who did his job well. He was very fond of my young niece Jayda. She was his favourite little human. Penguin was sweet with his family and anyone who took the time to learn his style. He liked being groomed, cuddled, walked and taken for car rides. He loved his feline Pucci and his canine best friend Blackjack. They were inseparable. Penguin also loved playing and walking with Pterodactyl, baby Chayl and of course Bailey boy. Penguin enjoyed his countless trips out East where he could run for miles in the deep woods of Nova Scotia. He is greatly missed.
