Thanksgiving for Dogs ~ Thanking Fido & Fifi

Thanksgiving presents an opportunity for reflection and appreciation and fresh and delicious organic food.  In many cases Thanksgiving brings Americans closer to their family, friends and loved ones, but don't forget to include Fido and Fifi into each of these categories.  If your relationship with your dog is similar to the relationship I possess with Teva, my dog companion, then you will see your dog as your best friend, your roommate and number one playmate. 

Thank Dogs for Good Health

Reflect upon the reasons to appreciate the social, psychological, and physical health benefits your dog provides you with and look to return the favor. 

1. SELF-ESTEEM ENHANCEMENT:  Companionship and friendship is one of the easiest benefits to recognize.  After all, the species is famously regarded as "Man's best friend."  Dogs almost to a fault will see nothing but the best in you and regally regard you as a king.  Chalk this up as a psychological boost to one's self-esteem. 

2. ECONOMICAL PSYCHOLOGICAL THERAPY:  Along similar lines of thought, dogs present their "masters" with an ear to hear us vent our cares and frustrations to.  Surely a more sympathetic creature does not exist.  Who is not guilty of endlessly speaking to their dogs in a conversational manner?  In general dog guardians, myself included, tend to hurl an endless barrage of questions and comments at their dog.  So, in a sense, dogs encourage us to think for ourselves and allow us the opportunity to talk through our problems.  While answers and suggestions are few are far between, dog's seemingly encourage us to figure out solutions to problems in our lives.  The emotional connection between human and canines is one of true compassion. 

3. LOVE & SENSE OF BELONGING:  Moreover, dogs mollify our sense of loneliness and provide unconditional love. 

4. MOOD ELEVATION:  Dogs innately improve our mood.  This is one of the ineffable mysteries of the universe, but the mere presence of a dog will generate smiles and lighten our mood.  Perhaps we identify with the simplicity perspective dogs represent.

5. OXYGEN, VITAMIN D & EXERCISE:  Dogs further improve your health by endlessly encouraging you to play and get outside. Fresh air, sunlight and exercise undeniably benefit the human body. 

6. HUMAN INTERACTION:  Dogs are social butterflies in presence and in stories both of which encourage human-to-human social interaction.  Dogs will sniff and lick strangers as well their masters and who hasn't shared a cute dog story with a stranger or friend.  Furthermore, new networks such as Dogster.com entirely dedicate their existence to meeting one another through and on behalf of your dogs.

7. LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE:  On a more scientific level, evidence shows simply being a "dog owner" will help control your blood pressure oftentimes more effectively than medicine.  Read more from a BBC report at: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/6279701.stm

8. STRESS REDUCTION:  Each of the combined benefits above from possessing a close relationship with a dog will reduce your stress levels.  Again, well documented evidence exists to support this connection.  Doctors in many cases now even prescribe "dog companionship" for its wide ranging medicinal values.

Appreciate Your Dog with the Paw Naturaw Reward

Many reasons exist to thank your dog for your good health as the list of benefits above details without noting the specific and idiosyncratic benefits dogs provide.  Show your dog your gratitude by feeding a healthy Paw Naturaw diet nutritiously designed to fulfill your dog's instincts, cravings, and desires. 

Feature pricing for Paw Naturaw organic turkey diets (dehydrated and frozen) on LocalHarvest.org is available for a limited time from now through Thanksgiving.

America's First Line of Organic, Raw, Dehydrated Dog Food ~ Paw Naturaw

Organic Leader of the Pack

Paw Naturaw leads the pack yet again by providing America's first line of USDA certified organic, raw, dehydrated diets for dogs. 

Why Feed Organic Raw Dehydrated?

While organic, raw, fresh or frozen diets will most excite dogs and will most closely resemble a diet dogs would eat in nature, organic, raw, dehydrated diets for dogs closely follow as second best.  When dehydrated properly, keeping the internal temperature of ingredients below 105 degrees Fahrenheit, ingredients will maintain the enzymes and nutritional integrity raw nutrition presents.  Alternatively, processing dog food with high heat or chemicals as in kibble or canning production processes destroys enzymes, antioxidants, essential fatty acids and other nutrients essential to keeping dogs their healthiest and happiest.

Organic, raw, dehydrated dog food presents multiple conveniences and feeding options.  Feeding dogs organic, raw, dehydrated diets is more affordable than both organic, raw, frozen and freeze-dried diets and is therefore more of a realistic option for everyday raw feeding for feeders unwilling to deal with the "hassle" of frozen raw foods.  Paw Naturaw's organic, raw, dehydrated line is perfect for raw feeders to keep on hand in cases of forgetting to thaw raw diets.  Of course the light weight and compact size work perfectly for feeding raw while on the go whether it be traveling, hiking, or camping.  Lastly, spoon fulls of Paw Naturaw dehydrated diets will perk up the taste and nutritional value of any meal whether it be raw, dehydrated, kibble, canned or homemade.

How to Feed Paw Naturaw Organic, Raw, Dehydrated Diets:

A little amount of food may go a long way.  With Paw Naturaw organic, raw, dehydrated diets for dogs two well packed tablespoons (T) per ten (10) pounds of animal weight will present the necessary energy and nutrient requirements for feeding a complete and balanced meal.  Just as a small tip, sixteen (16) tablespoons equals one (1) cup.

Mix one (1) part food with one and a half (1.5) parts warm water to reconstitute the meal.  Let product absorb the moisture for five (5) to ten  (10) minutes and serve your dog a nice warm meal.

More about Paw Naturaw:

Paw Naturaw presents a new paradigm in providing healthy food for pets by focusing on the optimal nutrient needs of canines and fulfilling these needs by blending together the purest and highest quality ingredients possible.  Paw Naturaw uniquely sources live animals for its organic meats as locally as possible from certified organic and documented family farms, humanely transports the animals to federally inspected processing facilities, processes the animals for human consumption, and produces each diet in its own, newly erected, USDA certified organic, FDA registered, manufacturing facility built to LEED green specifications in Lake Mills, WI.  Paw Naturaw avoids using grains and leftovers from the human food industry such as high bone content ingredients like necks, frames, backs, and wings, and formulates its diets with popularly understood supermarket definitions of meat rather than pet food definitions of meat of which include the esophagus, diaphragm, tongue, blood, sinew, overlying portions of fat, and other lesser quality protein sources.  Beyond simply featuring the best ingredients possible each Paw Naturaw diet is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for All Life Stages.
