Welcome to Sniff and Wag!
I love dogs. Big dogs, fluffy dogs, slow dogs, fast dogs. Give me a four (or three) legged bundle of fur with a cold wet nose and I am in my happy place.
Inspired by love for my two doggos, I decided to turn my fermenting business along with my nutrition and gut health training into something more meaningful and in the process discovered a direction that was significantly more aligned with my purpose in life. That I may help other pet parents achieve and maintain their fur kid’s health and wellbeing though the nutrition of better treats and wholesome fresh foods.
Sniff and Wag is based on a vitalistic approach to health, that given the species appropriate fresh foods, treats and nutrition, the body – human or canine – has an innate ability to heal and age well. Nutrition, exercise and love are the fundamental keys to happy doggy days.
My inspiration and the reason I get out of bed each morning is Harley (13) and Tia (10). They have a shared superpower, the ability to know when I take cheese out of the fridge.
Harley is a 13 year old black Labrador x Mastiff/Boxer/Bull Arab born in Mount Isa. Harley is a well travelled doggo having also lived with me in Kenilworth on the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane before we headed down to the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. In his younger days he was fast – very fast. A big softy with a huge heart, you are best not to bend over to pick something up from the floor lest you find his big boof head pushed between your legs as he unashamedly moves in looking for a chest scratch.
Harley loves walks along the beach and cheese but is not so fussed with baths or coming when called.
Tia is a 10 year old brown brindle Staffy x Mastiff and a rescue dog from Gympie. Seven years ago I saw her picture on the RSPCA adoption site and thought she’d be a great companion for Harley, so we drove 2½ hours for a meet and greet. The perfect match, Tia came home with us and they are the greatest mates.
Tia loves her soft toys and ripping the squeaker out, but not loud noises or having her nails clipped.
At 13 and 10 they’re advancing in age and my challenge is to continue researching the proven strategies that will keep them both strong and vital in their senior years and it is these lessons I hope to share. Longevity. Helping our companion animals lead long lives where they are healthy, strong and contented.
