We know from first-hand experience that you’re never really comfortable switching to a raw diet until you prepare your own raw meal. You can read all the books, take all of the courses, but sometimes getting your hands dirty is just the push you need to make the transition. And don’t worry, we’ll be here to hold your hand (even if it’s dirty).

  • How to calculate how much and what to feed
  • Which raw feeding model to follow and why
  • How to swap out proteins and food sources
  • What to expect when introducing new food
  • Tips and tricks for transitioning, sourcing, efficient prep time

We talk about your dog’s nutritional requirements, address common concerns about raw feeding and bacteria, and how to successfully transition your dog to DIY prepared raw food. Every dog, person, budget and lifestyle is different, we can give you tips on what to expect plus how to troubleshoot when something doesn’t go as planned.

The interactive workshop is included in the Professional Canine Nutrition Course. It’s a required component to receive your certification. Learn more about how to become a Certified Professional Canine Nutritionist (CPCN™)
