I teach YOU how to SEE things from your dog’s point of view!
It begins with YOU. Your dog’s mental, emotional and physical wellness begins with you. There is a sacred union between you and your dog.
Welcome, I am TAMARA TOKASH, an unconventional dog wellness adviser. The first and only trainer and canine nutritionist in my region to impart a holistic bespoken approach to dog rearing. Everything impacts a dog’s wellness – their family, their food, their frame of mind and so much more.
Mind – Body – Spirit
SYNERGY is only achieved when all elements are considered. My hope is that you will see that there is so much more than having a “well trained” dog. It means absolutely nothing if a dog is fluent in obedience cues yet is eating a poor quality food and is overly stressed. Nor is it beneficial for a dog to be fed a healthy biologically appropriate diet without any clear pack communication, thus resulting in a dysfunctional frenetic home life.
Derailment often occurs when one of the three tenets is overlooked. All of these factors must be addressed to fully understand a dog and help support them so they auspiciously navigate in and out of our home. No one has a perfect dog; not me or any canine expert, nor should we expect to have one. Embrace your dog’s individuality. They are special just the way they are. Let’s keep our expectations realistic, because in the grand scheme of things, don’t we all want the same thing for our dogs – to live long healthy and infinitely happy lives?
My goal is to help you keep your dog happy and healthy for years to come. This is where WELLNESS, NUTRITION AND VITALITY come together to help you and your dog experience happy and well balanced lives. I am here to provide practical, evidence based information and insight that will exponentially help your dog thrive but it can’t happen unless you take that step forward and offer it to your cherished dog.
Listen to your dogs … they are full of wisdom.
I’m a passionate steward for all dogs in this world – mine, yours and those that have no one to love and care for them. As a holistic canine wellness specialist, I will offer, guide and instill healthy lifestyle strategies for you and your dog. Together, we will work to be proactive, rather than reactive, to maximize your dogs MIND, BODY and SPIRIT. I’m here to educate, empower and excite you about your dog.

Whether you were referred here or stumbled upon me, you must be searching for a unique approach to improve your dog’s life.
Your dog’s life, and yours as well, is about to improve dramatically.
Genetics holds the gun while the environment and lifestyle in which we place our dogs pulls the trigger. As their guardians and advocates we owe it to them to help them THRIVE! We must be judicious and mindful. There’s no snake oil, magic pill, or empty promises – just proven sound strategies for optimizing health. How do I help my dog you ask? You help them by creating a balance. Cultivate synergy. This requires 5 Rs: Restoring their gut microbiome, Replenishing w/ a raw diet, Reducing vaccine loads, Reducing chemical exposure in, on and around them and absolutely means Reducing the stress in your dog’s life. But beware, some of the very people you think may be helping your dog are creating the imbalance that is killing our dogs.
Dogs are magical beings that have been sent here for a paramount purpose – to love, teach, and guide us. While we adore and cherish them, in the end, dogs heal and protect us at a deep level – right to the very core of who we are. If you let them in, you will become kindred spirits with them. That I can promise you.

The choices you make for your dog become the difference between vital wellness and chronic disease. You will learn how critical it is to choose consciousness over convenience.

Follow me – you will learn how to craft a beautiful, happy, and healthy life with your dog. The relationship we create with our dogs, coupled with nutrition and lifestyle, are the key tenets of health and happiness. My wish for you all is that you and your dog will be blessed like my dogs and me. I want you too, to walk with your 18 year old happy, healthy and disease FREE dog, along a quiet path, feeling each other’s love and energy and being joyful together. Let’s restore dogs lives and THRIVE together.
