Dig Deeper With Me

Hi there, my name is Tamara. I want to share sound, effective and restorative strategies to support your dog to his/her fullest potential. Together, we can restore dog’s lives and give them the well-being that they deserve to achieve health, happiness and longevity. Close to 30 years ago I set out on a mission to improve the overall well-being of dogs. What began as a childhood passion flourished into an adult inspired quest and livelihood to transform dogs by systematically addressing their mind, body and spirit. In other words – teaching them how to be polite, feeding them truly healthy functional food and supporting their emotions with qualified behavior modification consulting. This trident I created need to be accomplished all within a healthy environment.  If any of these three critical tenets are ignored a dog is not living their best life. Optimal health is striking a balance while integrating these dynamic principles within a robust environment. My philosophy cultivates a synergy to help dogs THRIVE!


Look around, all of us are being ‘de-natured’ and unless we interrupt this madness and create a new paradigm; our dogs will continue to suffer and fail. The allostatic load and xenobiotics that they carry around are quite honestly, well – sickening. Dogs are suffering with chronic disease and dying at alarming rates. They are feed garbage, inundated with unnecessary vaccines and toxins and isolated from social activity.  I’m here to tell you unequivocally that this does NOT need to be. There ARE things that can and MUST be done in order to support dog’s overall health. 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!


Our dogs need us to be open to sound tactics, ancient wisdom and plain old common sense. I’m here to distill all the current data down for you. I’ve dedicated a significant part of my life to improving dog’s lives and I would be grateful if you would allow me to share what I’ve learned, studied and practiced with you.  You’ll be shocked and disgusted yet grateful that you tuned in. Let’s change dog’s lives forever! I’m here to inspire and empower you to seek and demand, smart and healthy alternatives for your dog. At the very least I hope to ignite your curiosity to think about dog wellness differently. Our dogs give us so much … we owe it to them to fight for their health, happiness and longevity. I’m here to encourage you to buck this broken system that our dogs are strangled by and seek out a truly healthy / clean lifestyle for you and your dog. It will awaken you to the beauty that is within your dog.


You are ALL your dog has. He/she needs you to be well informed. This will require you to question and challenge those that seem to be “experts”. There was a time in my life when I fed my dogs what I thought was a great food and vaccinated them because I was under the false impression that it was a good thing. Sadly, my dogs suffered greatly. Some even died. I vowed to find THE best, most intelligent and healthiest approach to insuring that they live vibrant lives. I began to dig deeper and once I made the shift – they healed! Healthy living doesn’t make one impervious or preclude them from injury or disease; but what it DOES do is strengthen a body to fend off such things and rebound from the challenges.  I’ve been connecting the dots for a very long time, and want to share with as many people that are willing to listen how best to guide our magical dogs and help them THRIVE! Life with dogs is funny, isn’t it? In the process of us helping them; they in turn are the ones that inevitably help us. What a truly beautiful gift they are.


Have you ever wondered why so many dogs are riddled with chronic diseases like allergies, IBS and painful ear infections now-a-days? Have you pondered why dogs are being euthanized at 6 months old because they have cancer or some terminal illness?  Why are they jacked up with all different types of vaccinations and medications for heartworms, fleas/ticks and itching? Have you ever wondered why so many dogs have odd yet ubiquitous behavior issues? How about their social struggles? I have and I’ve learned why. I want to share the truth with you.


When we bring our dogs to the vet or see a dog food advertisement, we believe that the ‘experts’ have done their due diligence in researching and studying. We believe that the food presented and offered to us is healthy for our dogs. We believe that the ingredients are nutritious and safe for them and we feel comfortable if not confident that the vets and dog food manufacturers are qualified to make the recommendations that offer the food.  The hard reality is that they don’t.  We have been scammed. We’ve been brainwashed and dogs are paying the price.


Our dogs need us to be their health care advocates. They are literally dying for us to seek out the truth. The truth being – dogs need fresh, healthy whole food; just like us.

  • Believe that there is a better way to help our dogs
  • Believe that the ‘experts’ are not providing you with sound advice
  • Believe that you have what it takes to learn what alternatives are best
  • Believe that our dogs are waiting and hoping that we will wise up and open up


One of the most challenging parts of my job is to break through the thick, ugly wall of poor nutrition, over vaccination and lifestyle. These ALL contribute to disease. While veterinarians are excellent at practicing medicine, surgery, and determining the epidemiology of specific diseases; they are not skilled in nutrition. Big box food companies are good at well, lying to you and making money. The cycle goes like this: vets lack a sound nutritional background, yet they make food recommendations for our dogs; vets get their food info from big box food company reps who then give them kick-backs. Big box food companies do not have your dog’s health in mind; they have profits. The vaccinations keep coming; suppressing the immune system which is the very thing dogs need to fight disease. Dogs become sick, allergies, diarrhea, aggression, you name it, from the food and over immunizations and the vicious cycle continues. The hospitals make you feel as though you are an irresponsible owner if you don’t have your dog ‘up on all their shots’.  It’s all so backwards!


In Western medicine culture, nutrition is not looked at as a crisis – disease is. The veterinary community is one of the few that still convinces itself and its patients that poor nutrition is acceptable. They don’t see how nutrition is linked to disease. Until one is suffering from chronic illness do the doctors address their condition. Dog food has been ‘de-natured’ and it’s up to us as our dog’s guardians to make the shift and provide them with what they need to flourish. We all want the best for our dogs. We have to be smart and draw upon ancient wisdom and current sound canine health alternatives.
