Red Clover For Dogs

Couple of months ago I have promised to my Facebook readers to tell a bit more about the benefits of red clover and why do we add it to our dogs´ diet.

In summer, all the way until almost the end of September, red clover is plentiful in our area and its vegetation time is similar in most parts of Europe and North America.

We take advantage of that and use the fresh herb, or make an infusion, while we keep ourselves busy with harvesting and drying enough to last over the winter months.

Watch the video to learn about the broad scale of health benefits and nutritional values of this rather common wild plant.

Sixty Fireweeds

What for, you wonder? And why sixty? For the dogs, of course! :)

How To Stop Bleeding From Dog Nail Trimming Naturally

I am pretty sure that everyone who has a dog and trims his or her nails has been in this situation before - clip too far and the nail starts to bleed. Right?

There is really no need to panic or feel terrible, because this can happen even to a seasoned trimmer.

Herb Of The Month: Fireweed

I have written about the amazing health benefits of this wild flower on my blog before.

In our household Fireweed has multiple uses.

We dry its flowers for winter teas that we enjoy not only for their wonderful taste and aroma, but mostly for their detoxication and immune system support.

But we are not the only ones who benefit from fireweed´s medicinal and nutritional values. This herb (flowers and leaves) is one of the ingredients in our weekly detox cure for our dogs.

Just A Happy Summer Day

The weather has been getting better and better the past few days, making it really hard for me while I was finishing up a few important projects, such as workshops and webinars focused on natural dog nutrition and health care, for the second half of the year. In case you are interested, you can check them all out at the Event Calendar.

Anyway, with Jachym working from home every day till late afternoon and trying to catch up with the super fast growing grass with a failing lawn mower on the evenings, training the puppies, de-weeding my flower beds, picking and drying herbs, feeding dogs, and anything else in between, we kind of decided to chill out today and do as the dogs do - enjoy the moment, here and now :)

Dandelion Cookies

I think I´ve said it before, so pardon me, if you´ve already read or heard this: I love dandelions. I  love foraging and wildcrafting and all the edible so called weeds and all the medicinal properties and health benefits of so many of them.

Summer Meadows

Summer in the North is underway!

Not only have we just celebrated the Summer Solstice so it is summer astrologically, but everything is blooming, the meadows are dressed in colorful shawl and the fragrance, oh my, the fragrance! It smells like honey where ever you go.

Will You Be My Next Best All Time Leader?

Meet Breezy (official name SPRING BREEZE Kipp d´Amundsen), the only girl from Tazlina´s boy heavy litter :)

What can I say - Breezy is a handful!

As a tiny baby, she was just so cute and sweet and adorable and innocent, and looked a bit behind in everything comparing to her wild, pushy brothers. Oh well, times change, my friends!

Happy Summer Solstice!

Few Tips To Keep Your Dogs Cool On Hot Summer Days

A few folks asked me recently how do we keep our huskies cool and comfy during summer, so I thought I´d share a few pics and tips of what we do.

Herbal Mix For Your Dog's Healthy Heat Cycle

You´ve never heard of female dogs having issues while they are in heat? At least  not the same kind as their human counter-parts: headache, stomach pain, cramps, bad mood,...?
Well, that does not mean that they do not ever suffer from any issues associated with the heat cycle at all or that herbal teas and certain herbs in their food won´t be beneficial.

The Cat And The Toad

Summer is full of life. It is full of smells and sounds and everything is buzzing, peeping, jumping, running or crawling around.

Ronja made a discovery the other day, or perhaps she was trying to make friends with one such summer critter and it was hilarious to watch the two unlikely friends to interfere.

Birthday Girls

The speed of time is best viewed on kids or, in our case, on our dogs.

It feels like yesterday when our leader Babeli gave birth to her long time awaited litter, sired by our foundation dog, my beloved boy Buck.

This, our very first litter in Sweden, went on to become the foundation of many fine dogs to come and the Kipp d´Amundsen line.
Or I should say, the two girls born in the litter did :)

Our Fox Neighbors

To those of you, who follow my blog, it is no surprise to see fox and other wildlife pictures here, and over the years, our friends have been hearing not just one story about our wild neighbors, as we call them.

Foxes are ones of the most frequent visitors of the kennel, although I seldom call the wild creatures visitors, they are more of neighbors, really, because they have been living here long before us.

Creamy Home Made Cheese With Herbs And Spices

I have always loved cheese. Soft cheese, hard cheese, fresh ones and smelly ones, goat or cow, you name it.

There are recipes out there for cheese making at home, but a lot of them require long processes, coagulation, the use of rennet, cooking, etc.

Not only don´t I have the time for those, but in our household, we like things simple and as natural and fresh as possible.
