Holistic dog breeding might sound scary to pet owners that aren’t familiar with it, but it’s a philosophy that involves dogs conforming to a natural way of living.
Holistic breeders avoid unnatural supplements, commercial dog food and stay away from vaccines.
Instead, holistic dog breeders focus on a natural raw diet, holistic supplements, herbal treatments, aromatherapy, acupuncture and more. Let’s explore the natural way of living and holistic dog breeding.
Natural dog breeding stays away from standard vaccines, but that doesn’t mean veterinarian care is not involved. Holistic veterinarians are dedicated to providing natural health care and solutions to help dogs live a long healthy lifestyle. Dog breeders that believe in natural rearing always have their puppies cared for by a holistic veterinarian.
The Raw Food Diet
In the past, dogs lived in the wild alongside their closely related ancestors, the wolf. Dogs ran in their own packs and were den animals. They lived on an all-natural diet that involved raw meat. This meat provided dogs with essential nutrition, vitamins, and minerals. Holistic dog breeders start their puppies on the raw food diet from the very beginning.
Natural rearers use a variety of supplements to assure the nutritional needs of the specific dog breed is met. The combination of a raw diet and natural supplements provides dogs with the maximum level of nutrition which helps them live a healthy life.
Have you ever suddenly smelled a specific scent like lavender or vanilla and immediately felt relaxed? Aromatherapy dates back thousands of years. The use of essential oils and plant extracts are used to treat a variety of ailments such as:
• Reduces anxiety
• Improves skin ailments
• Increases circulation
• Eases depression
• Improves digestion
• Boosts energy levels
• Reduces pain
• Speeds up the healing process
Generally, aromatherapy uses the aroma of roots and flowers to create a strong scent that is used for topical and inhalant treatment. The process of creating these beneficial scents involves boiling down herbs, roots, and flowers into a concentrated liquid.
Chinese medicine has used acupuncture to treat a variety of conditions in humans for thousands of years. The treatment is based on the energy flow within the body. Thin needles are inserted into specific parts of the body to treat a variety of ailments including pain management. Dogs that suffer from pain highly benefit from acupuncture treatments.
Holistic breeders are proud and dedicated to helping dogs capture their natural way of life. This original way of living provided dogs with superior nutrition compared to commercial dog foods and supported a healthy body, coat, and skin.
Domesticated dogs don’t need to hunt for their food anymore, but they do deserve to be fed a raw diet which provides them with all of their nutritional requirements throughout their lifetime.
Dogs that are bred and raised by holistic breeders are healthy and active throughout their lifetime.
