One Busy Day In The Life Of A Puppy

Ever wonder how puppies do it? - so much energy in such tiny little bodies!

In this photo blog I am trying to capture at least a tiny fraction of what one single day in their life looks like.

Chilli´s Story

Folks have been asking lately how is Chilli doing. I know I kept very quiet about this special boy over the summer and I held my breath lately, but now, now I have a whole story to share! :)

As some of you know, in mid March Chilli sustained a severe injury in a freak accident when he got hit by a car, at the area where we were working and living away from home for the winter season.

Feeding And Weaning Puppies Naturally


I have had a lot of questions lately on what do we feed our puppies, especially during weaning time, so I guess it´s time for a blog post :)


Alright, so here it goes. First and foremost, in our kennel (and in my nutritional consulting profession, naturally) we understand that dogs are carnivores. There is much of a discussion going on lately on this topic and I do not want to go into length about it in this article.

Based on this fact, and on the fact that their needs of carbohydrates are very low, and so is their ability to absorb and utilize large quantities of carbs, we NEVER start our puppies on porridges from cereals. That is our rule nr.1

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!

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.
