Gingers Story

GingerOur gorgeous dog Ginger is a 4 year old Bichoodle. She is the baby of the family, we have a 12 year old son and 10 year old daughter.  She is a real
sweetie and is adored by everyone she meets.  Many a Bichoodle has been purchased after meeting Ginger!!

From the day we bought her home, we wanted to do everything right so we diligently took her to puppy school, socialised her well, kept up her vaccinations, trained her, walked her, gave her lots of love and fed her what the vet recommended, a quality kibble.

Heidi’s Story

HeidiHeidi is a long-haired miniature daschund who is now 18 months old. She became part of our family in February 2012. Our lives are now intertwined with our baby dog and she comes everywhere with us. In a lot of ways made us a complete family and we adore her.

As a child growing up, our family always fed our dogs with freshly prepared food so it was natural that when we got a dog of our own we investigated the best opportunity to feed Heidi in a way that provided complete nutrition.

From day one we had some wonderful advice from Helen McNall on the importance of puppy nutrition. We started out with the Wellbeing Meals and included more of the wellbeing mix, but when they stopped we now we make our own meals on a weekly basis and freeze them. Variety is also part of what Heidi gets – important for her! Read more about “Heidi’s Story” here.

Scooter’s Story

ScooterI came to Australia from France with two dogs and a cat in January 2000. They have all passed on since then, the last being my beautiful French puss who spent 19 years with me. It was time for another animal to join the household and we found Scooter’s photo on the notice board of the local store. His owners couldn’t control him. He was 11 months old, untrained and absolutely gorgeous. He quickly adapted to life “chez nous” and loves everybody and everything, although his order of preference is boy dogs, boy humans, girl dogs, girl humans and then all the rest. Scooter and my partner are inseparable. He is even mascot to a youth group in the region. He is now beautifully trained and is just the happiest dog in the world.

I feed Scooter real food for he same reasons I feed myself real human food. I wanted Scooter to be healthy, to be happy, to look stunning, which he does, and to live “forever”.

Deb Perry

FleurWith two standard poodles, the combination of Wellbeing Essentials with cooked mince and super-food vegies like broccoli and kumara works really well.  We add their big dog biscuits for extra calories and we find this is a great diet. Our puppy Fleur has gained 6″ and 5 kg in three months, and 6yo Mischka who has always been ‘chunky’ has actually fined down with this combination.

Also, their poos are fine, which is a big consideration with two big kids like this!

Carole Anne Priestley with Willow, Elmo and Milly

MillyI have 2 Bernese mountain dogs; Willow who is 9yo and weighs in at 40kg and her young brother Elmo 2yo and 55kg.  Millie is our terrier rescue dog and is a tiny 6kgs and likes to kill snakes!

I cook up every weekend, a massive chef pot, chicken drumstick filleted, with vegetables that I have put through the Bamix.

Their favorite day is cook up day, because they get to lick the bowl, all the little bits left and the stock.  I love that part of it.  Elmo lies on the ground and licks the last morsel.

I feel like I am nurturing them with proper food, I feel it is important to nurture them and I get great delight out of it!
