What our customers say:

you for making your wonderful Kuranda bed! It was so easy to put
together, it took me no time at all, and before I had even tied the
lambs wool bed pad in place, Harrison had climbed on and made himself
comfortable! He is sleeping as I write this.

been looking forward to being able to give Harrison a warm, comfortable
and supportive bed. He is extremely happy with the real thing! Thank
you again, Kuranda.

Unlocking the Canine Ancestral Diet: Healthier Dog Food the ABC Way

by Steve Brown

Steve Brown, an expert on canine nutrition, shows how you can bring the benefits of the canine ancestral diet to your dog by feeding him differently as little as just one day a week. And no, you won’t need to lead a pack of dogs on a hunting expedition! Just follow Steve’s well-researched and easy to follow ABCs to make improvements to whatever your dog currently eats. Ancestors and canine cousins of our dogs didn’t eat “krunchy kibble” or “meat ‘n gravy in a can.” They ate what they found or caught… and it wasn’t cooked or “enriched” either! It was high in protein, with balanced fats, and usually included a few fruits, vegetables and grasses. Raw food or home prepared feeders will learn how to balance nutrients more precisely, especially fats, for optimum health.
