How I Take Care of My Dogs

I receive a lot of inquiries related to my dogs and their coats.  I decidded to just create a page to be able to share the information.



I feed a combination of dry, canned and raw


Dry Food

I switch between Purina Pro Plan FOCUS Sensitive Skin & Stomach Adult Dry Dog Food & Wet Dog Food Purina Pro Plan SAVOR Shredded Blend With Probiotics Adult Dry Dog Food. I switch to give them a little varity.

1 cup in the Am and 1 in the PM


Canned Food

I add wet food to their dry.  I only add 1/4 cup just to add flavor.  A can lasts 1 1/2 days or 2 dogs so 1 can will last 3 days for 1 dog. Purina Pro Plan Large Breed Adult Wet Dog Food AND 

Purina Pro Plan SAVOR Adult Canned Wet Dog Food.



I buy chickin necks and wings and give them one or 2 a day as treats.



I am a big believer in supplements.  Irish Setters have sensitive skin and easily get dry coats.  The number 1 dominate genetic issue is hip Dysplasia.


Show Stopper is a great skin and coat supplement.  I add to food every meal according to instructions.  It will take 1-2 months to start noticing a difference.


Joint Strong is a FABULOUS product.  I have talked to several nutritionists about what is in it.  I add it to evey meal as per instructions.



I am hugely opinionated about the products I use.  DON'T USE PURELL OR ANY BIG BOX STORE PRODUCT! They all contain carcinogens.  

I bath every week and brush 3 minutes per day.

I buy all my products through

For everyday use I shampoo with Crowning Glory.


I Condition with Velvet Touch


Ear Issues

Irish Setters are prone to ear issues.  If you have a dog with ear issues FORGET ABOUT THE VET.


I hope this helps.
