Two of our 3 1/2 week old puppies enjoy a chicken back together - not able to consume the back at this age, still they do their best!
We proudly feed a Raw Diet to our Great Danes,
and have been doing so for Twelve Healthy Years.
Allyndane believes in Natural Rearing, Fewer Vaccinations,
and Making Informed Decisions. We feed and promote a raw, species appropriate diet. Our Danes enjoy meals of raw beef,
pork, chicken, turkey, etc., of various cuts - necks, backs, hearts, tongues, muscle and organ meat, as well as free-range eggs,
and fish on occasion. We also add an Omega-3 oil.

We are happy to mentor people new to feeding raw, especially those who purchase puppies from us of course, to encourage you in the path to natural good health for your canine companion. While it may appear confusing to you, to start with, you will quickly find it no more difficult than planning menus for your family, balancing their diet over time.
The key to the raw diet is variety in both protein sources and cuts from those sources, to provide essential nutrients.
Cost-wise, depending upon where you live, whether you purchase pre-made raw from pet stores or shop around for wholesale deals,
providing a raw diet can cost no more than a "top of the line" brand kibble.
Over the long term, feeding a well-rounded species appropriate diet which promotes better canine health can save you
much in terms of veterinary bills. Speaking personally, my veterinary bills have become rather non-existent except for puppy wellness tests, breeding clearances
and reproduction services, all of which actually mirror good health rather than are visits due to ill health.
Since feeding raw, my Danes are enjoying longer, more robust, lives; their teeth are cleaner, they shed less, their feces are much smaller, their condition
is better. I would give up canine companionship entirely, rather than ever revert back to feeding Kibble - "dead food" - if I had to make that choice.
Exploring these valuable websites can help you either continue a new puppy with the raw diet it was weaned on; or aid in the transition to a raw diet
of an older canine companion who has been fed kibble. We'd be happy to answer any questions you may have, or direct you
to appropriate sources for further information and education.
In addition, we firmly believe that improper vaccination seriously jeapordizes the health of canine companions. By improper vaccination, we refer
to vaccines given unnecessarily, given too early when given, and repeated unnecessarily. There is considerable evidence outlining the dangers
of vaccines. The link below to "pawsreflect/vaccinosis" will take you to Betty Lewis' site that has a very extensive list of links on the subject.
