It started with my love for dogs and then training dogs and then training in dog sports! But of course with active dogs comes fears!
Just like you, I needed to protect my dogs from the trials of training, dog sport and just allowing them to grow older, comfortably.
My biggest fear: Injury!
The more I trained my dogs, the more I saw that:
it is up to me to keep my dogs safe
arthritis and joint injuries are not reserved for old dogs
puppies need more protection than you know
hip dysplasia is more my responsibility than a discerning breeder’s
These were scary responsibilities!
My friends experienced that same joy of getting their new puppy or the fun play time with their dog. But they also lived with the same fears as me: What about our dogs’ joints? That first sign of a limp and your heart does a small double take!
What do I do? Like you, I wanted to prevent injuries. I wanted my dog to be comfortable as she grew older. I had already looked at what was available on the market and nothing provided complete joint protection as I needed it to.
And then I found Sashas Blend – my first product – and the birth of Dog Solutions – and from there I studied further to become a Certified Canine Athlete Specialist (CCAS) specialising in fitness, conditioning and injury prevention with emphasis on our canine sports and working dogs.
This helped me build an all-round foundation for training, strength and injury prevention for our dogs.
I apply this knowledge in all our articles when it comes to your fur buddy’s health, fitness and injury prevention and so birthed our sister company, The Biokinetic K-9 – Magic in Movement.
Of course, all my own dogs’ joints are protected by Sashas Blend!
No product is sold that I don’t use, personally, on ALL my dogs!
The difference in this dog is very difficult to put into words to describe – you really needed to be there to see it for yourself. Jess went from being lame after 15 – 20 mins of activity, to be able to run and hunt for 2 – 3 HOURS and retrieve bagged game! (some of which weighed in excess of 10kg – or put another way, almost half of her own body weight!)
At the time of writing this, she has just completed another full season in the field, is enjoying life to the full and we are both looking forward to the next season in the veld together. Thanks for all the advice and thanks for Sashas Blend!!
Jessie formally retired at age 14 1/2, so we had all that extra time in the field with her. And this was her life.. something she lived for and enjoyed beyond description.
Then all of a sudden, one day he jumped up from lying down and easily walked out of the house. The change from then on was quite dramatic.
He could get up easily after lying down. He was jumping onto my bed with a single leap. He trots around the garden like a youngster and runs like he is a puppy.
Looking at him you would never know that both his hips are terrible.
But the biggest thing for me was that I could see that he is no longer in pain.
He will stay on Sashas Blend for the rest of his life.
I will never take him off it.
He means too much to me!
Thank you Sashas Blend for changing my dog’s life!!
Our adopted, rescued Labrador, Minky, was diagnosed with hip dysplasia when she was only a year old.
Walking was painful, running a definite no-no.
She was put on medication (Rymadil) which worked very well but for obvious reasons, a natural product would be the first choice.
I was overjoyed when I learned about Sasha’s Blend. I gave her Sasha’s Blend with Rymadil for two weeks before weaning her from the Rymadil. I was absolutely amazed at how well she was doing and how her condition improved. We have never looked back. She is now eight years old and loves her walks and playtime.
Thank you for this life-saving product!
