I’ve had a few people ask me about the unique approach we take to raw feeding, so here’s the long version lol.
Luna is a 3 year old Catahoula mix weighing in at about 63 #
Padfoot is a 2 year old Samoyed-Akita Mix weighing in at 70 #
Alastor is a 2 year old Village Mutt (Australian shepherd- Terrier type mix) weighing in at 30 #
Tonks is a 1 year old American Bully weighing in at 80 #
Lola is a 6 year old Chihuahua weighing in at about 9 # (if she loses a little more that will be good)
Little Luna aka Lulu is 2 year old Chihuahua weighing in at 4.25 pounds
We also have 2 cats, 6 year old Kiki (~9 #) and 2 year old Jiji (~8 #) who are raw fed, but they have mostly grind supplemented with the occasional bone for mental stimulation.
There are a couple things we do different than most raw feeders. First is we feed bone & organ 3 days a week, Boneless meat 3 days a week and fast on Friday’s. We do this for several reasons, first and foremost is because the smallest dog we are feeding is only 4 pounds. So bone items small enough for her daily portion are not quite big enough for her to get the chewing and mental stimulation she needs.
Next reason space: we have a large chest freezer and a stand up freezer we store their food in, as well as a mini fridge in the house (which was a kegorator before we switched to raw, RIP my great beer holding appliance, your new purpose is much more valiant lol).
Leaky gut allows allergies to develop.
The gastrointestinal wall contains muscosal barriers that protect against allergens.
If your dog has a history of antibiotic treatments or viral infections these barriers are porous , so allergens enter the body.
Providing prebiotic/probiotics superfoods can protect your dog from these allergens. .
Sprouted seeds contain highly bio-available vitamins, minerals, enzymes and probiotics that will support your dogs healthy gut flora.
How often do we wonder why dogs eat grass and other plants.. they naturally consume in nature to feed his own individual gut bacteria.
Sesameeeeeee. One of my all time favourite additions to a fresh diet is tahini, or crushed sesame paste. It's a great source of nutrients not readily available from animal protein, it's cheap, it's delicious, it's a whole food, its easily digested, you can buy it at the supermarket, you can share it and dogs bloody love it. Sesame is a good source of magnesium, calcium and cancer-fighting antioxidants. Try small amounts (half teaspoon) to begin with and gradually increase to a tablespoon a couple of times a week for medium to large dogs or a teaspoon for small dogs and cats.
👀 Presentation of raw meals are useful when displaying individual ingredients in a meal however the visual appeal is only for human viewing pleasure.⠀
🥩 Ingredients can be strategically placed or thrown together without any thought and your pet will still be excited for their raw meal you've prepared for them.⠀
1️⃣ Photo one depicts a meal photo typically posted to display all ingredients in a visually appealing manner.⠀
2️⃣ Photo two depicts a meal assembled without any thought but using the exact same ingredients as photo one.⠀
🦸 Regardless on how you choose to serve your pet their raw meal...whether it is beautifully presented or thrown together, you're still providing your pet with high quality, nutritious, fresh food they will enjoy until the last bite!⠀

Boyo scores too high on affection level and I’m totally ok with it. I love that he wants cuddles when he’s at home, want to play when we’re out, and wants to work when I ask. I love that he acts like, after a minute of spending time with any of our friends, they’re part of the pack. These dogs are all in on everything and that energy and versatility is possibly my favourite thing about him.
Happy that another one of our pup’s is now on @wefeedraw! Ozzy is almost three weeks into his raw feeding and he’s already shedded unnecessary weight, his fur is softer and smoother, his teeth are cleaner, and raw feeding equals way less shit to pick up. As usual, thrilled with @wefeedraw’s product. If you’d like to try their food, you can use discount code WORKINGDOG20 upon check out.

Instgram vs reality ➡️
Same bowl, just one looks prettier/cleaner. Of course when you come on the gram, you’re going to see perfect or staged photos.. however that’s not real life. I love making Norman’s bowls look aesthetically pleasing, but at the end of the day it’s going in one place and out the other😂💩. I have fun making doing this, but that’s not the point. My goal is to show you how easy raw feeding truly is.
