She just wasn’t handling it well at all.This is where I began my raw feeding journey with my dog. I decided to do research on other ways to feed a dog to keep them healthy. I came across fresh food…

If you don’t already know, I’m an avid believer in dog health. That is just one of many reasons why I absolutely love the weighted vests by XDOG. These vests are great to use on dogs of just about any age. They come with no weight added, so you get to add the weight and in increments of your choosing. Now I don’t recommend any weight for your dog until they are at least 12 months, but honestly I’d say wait until 18 months and be sure to discuss it with your vet prior to make sure your dog’s growth…
