agnew-brian.jpgBRIAN AGNEW (The Balanced Dog)
Brian has been training dogs for over 14 years now. He has always looked for ways to up his game when it came to working with dogs. He was introduced to Wendy through a friend and started using the Volhard Endurance supplement with his dogs as well as the training dogs. After seeing the amazing results, he finally made the move to feeding a Volhard raw diet. But he didn't stop there. As Brian and Wendy's friendship grew, Wendy became an invaluable mentor not only with nutrition, but training as well. With this knowledge, Brian has helped many dogs have a happy and healthy life.

placeholder-5px.pngJULIE RUST (Rustyco Portuguese Water Dogs)
In my experience breeding Portuguese Water Dogs over the last 25 years, I have found that good nutrition is the keystone of raising healthy and happy dogs. When my first PWD, Quarry, began refusing to eat kibble, I conducted research on the topic and found Wendy Volhard’s book, Holistic Guide for the Healthy Dog. As I read the book, my entire philosophy regarding feeding dogs changed as I learned they require living food to thrive. Following the diet change to the Voldhard method, Quarry’s interest in eating immediately improved and remained strong the rest of his long life. Since I breed PWDs using natural rearing methods, I also incorporated the Volhard feeding approach into the diet of my pregnant dogs and young puppies to ensure they are provided the most balanced nutrition available. As a result of using the Volhard diet, my dogs and puppies are healthy and happy and thrive.

VIRGINIA

crum-sarah.jpgSARAH CRUM (A Better Companion Dog Training)
Sarah, a professional dog trainer since 1996 specializes in solving behavioral problems. Her interest in nutrition was sparked by her own dog who started exhibiting dull coat, itchiness, general malaise and attitude problems which mirrored many of her training clients. After much research Sarah discovered that a lack of appropriate nutrition was at the root of many behavioral issues; once proper nutrition was achieved any leftover training issues were much easier to eliminate. Now, the first thing she asks is, “what’s your dog eating?” Sarah continues to avidly expand her knowledge in nutrition through books, webinars and conferences.
