We have been talking a lot about healthier habits for the humans in our family but what about our pets? Our dogs are very much part of our family and as their owners it is our responsibility to take care of them. They need a safe, warm place to sleep, fresh water to drink, toys and walks to exercise and entertain. They also need nutritional food to eat, everyday. 

My Chihuahuas, including Ruffy, have to work on the healthier eating and exercising. We will be changing their habits thanks to PC® Nutrition First

PC® Nutrition First dog food has all the goodness your pet needs without all the useless bad stuff. No corn, wheat or soy. No by-products and no artificial preservatives. It's made with probiotics and probiotics, rich in omega-3 fatty acids. It's enriched with antioxidants (including lutein) to enhance the immune system. The small, crunchy kibbles help promote dental hygiene. There is a variety of PC® Nutrition First dog foods and treats even for toy/small breeds like Ruffy. 

To help Canadians celebrate their beloved fur babies and educate them about making nutritious choices on their behalf, the President’s Choice® Nutrition First® team has partnered with celebrity dog trainer Harrison Forbes.  Whether you are a new or seasoned dog owner, check out Harrison’s tips for dogs of all ages!

Enjoy First-Class Fuel
The number one contributor to a healthy lifestyle for pets and humans is diet. Like you, your pet should eat nutritious ingredients from all the essential food groups. Brands like President’s Choice® Nutrition First® make it easy for your pet to enjoy the same nutrient-rich foods you do by incorporating high-quality proteins as the main ingredient, along with wholesome grains, fruits and vegetables, pre and probiotics, and omega 3 and 6 fatty acids to nourish your pet’s body.  

Get Physical
Most pet behaviour problems are rooted in frustration. Like people, dogs get bored and anxious when they are under-exercised. Being a good pet parent means finding time to play with your dog. Whether focused on mental stimulation (for example, using “smart toys”) or physical exercise (like a walk in the park), interactive activities are crucial for a healthy, well-behaved pup.

Educate Early
When it comes to pet parenting, education is essential – for both of you. To effectively train your dog, you need to invest time in understanding his genetic history so you can design a program that takes advantage of his natural instincts. As your pup learns good conduct, don’t forget to recognize and reward his progress. Treats like President’s Choice® Nutrition First® Grain-Free Biscuits are a nutritious way to reinforce and reward behaviour, help him enjoy the training experience and fuel his body.

Seek Out Puppy Pals
Taking your dog out on the town is key to teaching him how to interact with other people and animals. Just like human babies, dogs needs time to learn what they can and cannot do around others, and exposing them to other pets is a great way to help them establish relationships and learn to enjoy spending time with furry friends. Plus, having a dog on your arm is a great way to meet like-minded friends!

  1. I don't have a dog but yours sure is cute. I appreciate the recommendation for this food and will mention to my friends with dogs. I have heard a lot of bad things about pet food recently so it is great to see this brand takes pride in caring for pets as much as their owners do.

  2. I love most PC products but hadn't thought of getting pet food there. Good to know. (PS. My daighter's favourite dog is the chihauhau!)

  3. I didn't know that PC had dog food. I'm heading to my Real Canadian Wholesale store tomorrow and will have to check it out there. Thanks for sharing (and just in time as Chilli is running low on food).

  4. Your dogs are so adorable! I don't have any pets, but I will pass this information onto my mother in law, she works in a vets office and I am sure she knows people would love to hear about PC's dog food options!

  5. I do not have pets, but I believe that it is important for pets to have healthy food. These are good things to consider.

  6. Oh my goodness -- what a darling little dog!! You definitely want to take care of all members of the family with a great diet :)

  7. we have been using this food for our dogs for over a year now - it is priced right, had good ingredients, and the dogs love it :D

  8. When the beef relish is almost done, start making your hot dogs. I like to cook my hot dogs in a cast iron skillet with butter. I heat the skillet to medium heat and add 2 tablespoons of butter.Promotional Items

  9. Your blog is extremely brilliant especially the quality content is really appreciable.
