What is Dinovite for Dogs?  Also formulated for Cats & horses as well

 
Dinovite for Dogs is a nutritional supplement made with whole food ingredients that contain vitamins, minerals, enzymes, direct fed microbials and fatty acids that can be missing from your dog’s diet. These can help support the immune system, digestive function, healthy skin and a shiny coat!

Does your dog itch, scratch, shed, or stink like crazy? Have you tried creams, shots, antibiotics, steroids and lotions? Are you tired of spending, spending and spending at the vet's? Nothing works!

Maybe it's not medical?
It could be a nutritional deficiency. Dogs need good nutrition so their bodies can function properly.
Dog food is cooked at such a high temperature and intense pressure that many nutrients are destroyed. Your dog eats this nutrient-depleted food his whole life. When fed in this manner he can develop horrible signs of nutritional deficiency.
Horrible signs like:
  • Terrible itching
  • Sores and lesions
  • Crusty skin
  • Bad odor
  • Excessive shedding

Any of these can be signs of a nutritional deficiency. If this describes your dog, the nutrients in our https://www.google.com/url?q=https://www.dinovite.com/dinovite-products&source=gmail&ust=1592306873513000&usg=AFQjCNH8BMQ4gSNeaqOU8AXLtAjRna5bvw">Dinovite supplements can help support good body function.

Two Companies from Bend Oregon Team up for the 2021 Stage Stop Sled Dog Race
 
Bend, OR – January 19, 2021 – Two local companies from Bend, OR are joining forces for the highly anticipated 2021 Stage Stop Sled Dog Race, which is set to kick off on January 29th in Jackson Hole Wyoming. Alpine Outfitters, makers of handcrafted and high-quality gear for working and active dogs, will be sponsoring Mount Bachelor’s Oregon Trail of Dreams sled dog team by providing them with gear for the upcoming race.
 
Beginning in Jackson, WY this premier “stage” format sled dog race is hosted by the area’s local communities. Teams race on public lands of the Bridger-Teton, Shoshone, & Caribou-Targhee National Forests, competing for $165,000 in prize money & the elusive title of “Stage Stop Champion.” The Pedigree® Stage Stop Race, now in its 26th year, intends to move forward following all federal, state, and local COVID-19 public health guidelines. Learn more at: https://www.wyomingstagestop.org
 
"Headquartered and manufactured in Bend, OR, Alpine Outfitters is a long-time supporter of Oregon Trail of Dreams," states Bruce Stegmaier, Owner of Alpine Outfitters, “Our gear and equipment is great for all dog-powered outdoor activities and adventures, including mushing with working sled dogs.  All of our products are tested locally and around the world with both a dog and person’s comfort and safety in mind, as well as to maximize performance and durability.”
 
Oregon Trail of Dreams is best known for giving their customers a wonderful experience providing sled dog tours at Mt. Bachelor. Founded by the well-known and admired American dog musher, Rachael Scdoris, and her dad, Jerry Scdoris; Oregon Trails of Dreams consists of a professional team of guides that have more than 100 years of combined experience to provide guests with an unforgettable, fun and safe experience. In 2006, Rachael became the first legally blind person to complete the 1,049+ mile Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race across the U.S. state of Alaska. She is well known in the sled dog world and a local community of Bend celebrity.
 
“My father and I are unable to participate in this year’s Stage Stop Race due to a few unforeseen circumstances. However, we are thrilled to announce that Rafael Nelson, our dear friend and a trusted employee at Trail of Dreams, will be taking on the race with our dogs!” expresses Rachael Scdoris.
 
Rafael is a charismatic 29-year old man who lives in Bend Oregon. He’s a 2nd year musher and has a real passion and talent for driving sled dogs. Rafael guides rafting trips on the Rogue River in the summer and sledding trips at Mt. Bachelor in the winter. Four years ago, he learned how to run dogs at the Scdoris kennel in Oregon. The race team has been having great training runs with ATVs through the Oregon Badlands Wilderness Area this year. Jerry, Rachael’s father, will be accompanying Rafael to the start of the race and will be his support person throughout the seven-day event.
 
Rafael says, “I’m excited to get my team out on the beautiful Wyoming trails and see what they can do. I’m looking forward to reconnecting with some of the amazing dog people I met last year and seeing some new faces.”
 
“Bend, Oregon is such a beautiful destination and we are so proud to be part of this unique and supportive community,” says Bruce from Alpine Outfitters, “We look forward to sponsoring the incredible Oregon Trail of Dreams team for this very exciting event. The race is on!”

New York, NY - The AKC Museum of the Dog is excited to announce “Virtual Night with the Museum,” a livestream virtual gala honoring the Museum’s longtime friend, supporter and board member Ronald H. Menaker on Friday, February 12 between 8pm -9pm.

For almost three decades, the Theatre Benefit for the Museum has been Menaker’s passion project and the Museum hopes to continue the tradition virtually with a night of celebrating and showcasing our love of dogs and the Museum’s impact on the community.

Mr. Menaker first served on the AKC Board from 1996 to 1998. Elected again in 2000, he became Vice Chairman in 2001 and served as Chairman since March 2002 until April 2019. He has been actively involved in the sport of purebred dogs for more than 40 years and has contributed to it greatly through his work with fundraising, particularly hosting the annual Theater Benefit.

The Theater Benefit has fundraised thousands of dollars for AKC affiliates such as the Humane Fund and now more recently, the AKC Museum of the Dog. In addition to hosting the Theater Benefit, Ron has also donated several pieces of artwork to the Museum, including At the Garden Gate by Matilda Lotz, Portrait of Bea Godsol by John Dwight and The Intruder by Arthur Wardle.

Open to the general public, the virtual gala will include remarks from Museum Executive Director Alan Fausel, testimonials from community members on the Museum’s impact and a silent auction. Individuals also can become an Event Sponsor. With a gift of $1,000 or more, participants can become a Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum Level Sponsor. Sponsors at levels Silver and above will receive a medallion on our Capital Campaign Wall. Supporters at all sponsor levels will receive recognition on the MOD Donor Wall in the Museum, in pre- and post- show content, and a dedicated space on our giving center within the sponsor level and mentions throughout the live event.

In addition to sponsorship, guests will also be able to bid in a live auction during the event for a chance to take home fabulous prizes in support of the Museum. Those who prefer to give directly can do so through the Museumofthedog.org website on the Night with the Museum Fundraising page.

Parent club members are encouraged to participate in the livestream event through Champions for Our Cause, a competition open to AKC clubs encouraging giving together as a team. The highest total amongst club teams will earn recognition on our AKC Clubs Wall of Fame. This dedicated space in the Museum will feature a plaque with the club’s name on it, to honor the club’s legacy and lasting support of the Museum.

“At the Museum of the Dog, we want to take this opportunity to honor Ron Menaker as being an integral part of the museum’s development and sustained success,” said Alan Fausel, Executive Director of the Museum. “He has been the glue that has held our institution together, and we wish to follow his example as we work towards a brighter and stronger 2021 for all museum visitors.”

Amazon Prime Video’s upcoming dog-competition series THE PACK, which premieres tomorrow Friday, 11/20. We have 12 fantastic contestants and dog lovers

 

More information on the series and the contestants can be found below. On the surface, this is a global unscripted series that celebrates the unrivaled bond between dogs and their human companions, hosted by the talented and charismatic Olympic gold-medalist Lindsey Vonn and her canine co-host Lucy. In reality though, this series is so much more than that.

 

ABOUT THE TEAMS

Brian Calvert & Dixie (Camby, IN) – Dixie is a 5-year-old Old Bluetick Coonhound. She’s a therapy dog for veterans and a deer tracking dog. She’s known as “Dixie The Praying Dog” because Brian taught her how to ‘bow’ down to pray and say thank you to Veterans on command. Brian is a 47-year-old man from Camby, Indiana. Half of the week, Brian drives semi-trucks while taking Dixie to public appearances and events for the rest of the week. Both Brian and Dixie have dedicated their lives to helping Veterans, kids, and anyone who might need a smile. Brian and Dixie have a custom Jeep Wrangler with Dixie’s signature logo on it. They drive around in the Jeep participating in parades, escorting charity motorcycle rides, and escorting veterans’ funerals.

 

Chelsey Lowe & Gryffin (Newport Beach, CA) – Gryffin and Chelsey currently live in Newport Beach, California, where they enjoy doing activities such as surfing, stand up paddle boarding, yoga, beach volleyball, and anything else outdoors. Chelsey played college volleyball at UC Santa Barbara and is a yoga instructor. Chelsey found Gryffin at just seven weeks old about seven years ago, on her way home from a trip, and Gryffin hasn’t left her side since. They do everything together. Chelsey even brings her to work, teaching her yoga classes with Gryffin by her side!

 

Chisum Joe Johnson & Kepo (Cogar, OK) – Kepo joined Chisum’s family in 2017. Chisum initially got Kepo as a friend to his older dog (who has since passed) and a new friend for him. Chisum began to train Kepo as a tracking pup, and through that, they grew a close bond. Chisum didn’t realize how smart a dog could be until he befriended Kepo. Chisum credits Kepo for keeping him grounded after a stressful day at the fire station.

 

Daniel Reese & Allister (Chicago, IL) – Four years ago, Daniel Reese was blessed to be in the right place at the right time rescuing Allister, his sweet Wired Haired Rat Terrier, making him Daniel’s forever fur best friend. Allister is always ready for the next big adventure. Daniel gets so much love from Allister that he now wants to share that feeling with the world.

 

Donna Modafferi & Charlie (New York City, NY) – Donna Modafferi and her Schnoodle-Schnauzer-Poodle, Charlie, currently reside in New York City. Donna fell in love with Charlie’s adorable face from a photo she saw online – proving there is such a thing as love at first sight. When Donna brought Charlie home in July 2016, Charlie fit into Donna’s little family perfectly and has brought them so much joy and love ever since.

 

Josh White & Snow (West Hollywood, CA) – Josh has a 3-year-old Standard Poodle named Snow. Joshloves to groom Snow, changing up her look to then go out and take photos of her! Snow enjoys all the attention and all the love, but most of all, she just enjoys spending time with Josh – and Josh enjoys spending all his time with her!

 

Kioni “Kentucky” Russell Gallahue & Derby (San Diego, CA) – Kentucky got Derby from a loving family that realized that they couldn’t take care of him and needed to re-home him. Kentucky took him in, and they have been best friends ever since. Once living with Kentucky, Derby discovered a whole new world, and Kentucky helped give Derby the confidence to enjoy and explore it. Derby came into Kentucky’s life at a low point, and he helped get Kentucky through the hard times and start a new life in San Diego. Together they are inseparable. They love to surf, ride motorcycles, and find new, fun, crazy activities together.

 

Linh Iacona & Chance (Brooklyn, NY) – After suddenly losing Linh’s first dog, a senior rescue, she searched on Petfinder and found Chance (who at the time was called Griff). She drove 8 hours that day to pick him up at his foster home. At only six weeks old, he was found homeless roaming the streets of Kentucky, then transported to Pennsylvania to be fostered. She adopted Chance at three and a half months old, and now he’s living his best life in Brooklyn.

 

Lucy Riles & Duchess (Woodland Hills, CA) – Duchess is an 8-year-old Black Lab that loves tennis balls and playing fetch with Lucy, a Stay-at-Home Mom of four kids, two dogs and wife to one husband. Duchess and Lucy’s bond began when Duchess was four months old. With a toddler and baby already in tow, Lucy decided to adopt Duchess from Southern California Labrador Retriever Rescue. But as the years went on, it’s pretty clear that Duchess was the one doing the rescuing all along. The unconditional love, security, companionship and emotional support Duchess has provided Lucy and her kids has gotten their family through some of life’s most devastating losses and obstacles. Not only has Duchess saved the lives and hearts of Lucy and her family, but Duchess is also about to win over your hearts as well! This duo may be the oldest female team on The Pack and viewed as a couple of underdogs...but never underestimate the inner strength of a mom and her lab. Lucy and Duchess are here to prove you CAN teach an old dog (and old broad) new tricks!

 

Mark LeBlanc & Ace (Salt Lake City, UT) – Mark is a 31-year-old mechanical engineer and professional photographer with a furry best friend named Ace, a 10-year-old Border Collie. Mark specifically wanted a breed that could match his physical abilities and intensity—Ace was exactly that for him. They love to push themselves to the limit in the mountains. Living in Salt Lake City, Utah, they are always active outdoors doing things like rock climbing, backcountry skiing, mountain biking, and trail running. At six months old, Ace was catching frisbees 30 yards away, and at ten years old, a ten-mile trail run is simply a warm-up. Together, Mark and Ace have an unbreakable bond and a thrill for adventure.

 

Mitra Najibeh Yosri & Bozley (Los Angeles, CA) – Nine years ago, Mitra Yosri met Bozley, and they’ve been inseparable ever since. Bozley escorted Mitra when she made the life-changing decision to move from Utah to Los Angeles, and they do absolutely everything together. With the unconditional love and companionship that Bozley has always provided her, Mitra has been able to take risks and pursue her dreams. Today, Mitra and Bozley enjoy cuddling and hiking through the hills of Eagle Rock and sharing food. Mitra is most happy at home with Bozley and her two cats. Bozley is happiest trying to catch flies and never leaving Mitra’s side.

 

Vania Zuniga & Jax (Long Beach, CA) – Jax is a goofy three-year-old Golden Retriever who loves to be attached to Vania’s hip (unless there is a squirrel around). This pair loves to spend their time soaking up the sun at the beach. Jax loves to put a smile on anyone’s face, but be careful because his dog hair is contagious!

 

ABOUT THE SHOW

At stake is a life-changing monetary prize for the winning duo ($500,000) and the animal charity of their choice ($250,000). Additionally, THE PACK donated $250,000 during filming to multiple charities and animal rescue organizations in each country, helping to pay it forward to dogs and those who love them around the world. To win the monetary prize for themselves and their charity, the teams depended on their understanding of one another’s strengths and weaknesses In order to prove to have the strongest bond in the pack. In each locale, the human and dog duos faced fun and exciting challenges, designed in concert with a team of accredited veterinarians and certified dog experts that also accompanied the group on their exciting journey, making sure it was a positive and safe experience for everyone. 

 

The competitors range from veterans to mothers to celebrity dog hairstylists – and their precious pups range from young to old, nervous to confident and comforting to competitive. Teams began in their journeys in their home states of Indiana, Oklahoma, New York, California and beyond – and acclimated to new climates, countries, altitudes and adventures along the way.

 

All in, the series emphasizes the incredible relationships humans and dogs are able to form throughout life’s hurdles, and the passion true dog lovers possess, as seen by the donations of hard-earned funds to charities that exist in support of these animals.

Chews Happiness high-quality artisan dog treat bakery was founded by two people with a shared longing and a dream. Tavor White and Meeta Gawande wanted to break out of the doldrums associated with their cutthroat corporate careers and dedicate themselves to doing good for the planet.​

During a trip to Bhutan, they were inspired by the country’s commitment to Gross National Happiness, a concept that focuses less on making money and more on protecting the environment, people, and culture.​

After returning to the U.S., Tavor and Meeta got married, moved to the Colorado mountains, and expanded their family to include a puppy named Bouncer. Like so many pet parents, they wanted the best for their little bundle of joy. However, they soon learned that finding safe, high-quality pet products with “good vibes” wasn’t easy. It was at this point that they got an idea.

Why not create great products like gourmet Barkaron French macaron dog treats that promote happiness for people, their pets and the planet?​

And so, Chews Happiness was born!

Monkey’s House a Dog Hospice & Sanctuary is truly Where Dogs Go To Live!

Southampton, NJ October 22 - How sad it would have been had Cole disappeared into that dark room in the back of the shelter, alone and frightened, as if he never existed. This is often the fate of dogs afflicted with medical issues. Cole, a senior dog with cancer, was discarded by his owner, much like throwing away an old pair of shoes. Michele and Jeff Allen said enough is enough and started a dog hospice and celebrate the beauty each dog has to offer. They have welcomed over 100 hospice dogs into their home, thankfully Cole was one of those dogs that experienced the final chapter of his life filled with dignity and love.

Their new book Where Dogs Go To Live!: Inspiring Stories of Hospice Dogs Living in the Moment highlights many of the dogs that have called Monkey’s House home. Share in their journeys, laugh at their crazy antics, and shed a few tears while witnessing miracles of transformation.

Founder & Director: Love from Luke was established in 2017 by Melissa Anne Sweeney (Lissa) . She has 25 years experience working with rescued animals. Her mission to have the rescued dogs help to emotionally heal as many people as possible. There is an special comfort animals can offer us and the is why they are blessing. Melissa is the author of the Love from Luke book series. In her spare time, which is very little, she continues to write about the dogs she has worked and the lessons they have taught her. She is originally from Milford, MA and has resided in Tampa, FL for 16 years. Hi Everyone, Hi there- my name is Melissa, thanks for visiting our page. Thisis a picture of myself and "soon to be therapy dog," Loved Luna. I am dog mom for special needs dogs and founder of Love from Luke a 5013c non-profit. 100% of items purchased from this site goes directly to our dogs. Prior to going into full-time dog rescue and non-profit work I was a military college professor for 8 years. I have a Doctorate (DBA) in International Business and conducted detailed research on various cultures to create unity and high-performing teams. My professional name is Dr. Melissa Anne Sweeney but nowadays I go by Lissa, just drop the ME off Melissa. I currently have two Love from Luke books published. Prior to that had 9 nine research/textbook published- they didn't do as good as my LFL books surprisingly (ha-ha). I was forever changed in May of 2014, when I rescued a senior Siberian Husky who I named Luke. My personal passion is animal rescue and well-being. For over 20 years I have assisted dogs and cats find forever homes where they are loved and healed from their past abuse. Caring for abused and mistreated animals is rewarding but, I won't lie, it can also be stressful! That is why I felt it was important for me to write the book Love from Luke: Lessons learned from a Rescued Dog! My goal is to help individuals who rescued animals better understand how they often communicate with us when they have had an abusive past. In this book I share the journey I had with my 11 year old senior rescue, Luke. I learned to recognize that many of Luke’s reactions were caused by his abusive past. Other times, his behavior was because he was not feeling good. While learning how to relate to Luke and meet his needs, I was introduced to the highest and closest bond a human and animal can create. This was established because mutual respect was formed. This respect created a deep love within me, not only for Luke, but for animals in need and fellow rescuers. Luke taught me how to create a loving trustworthy bond with previously neglected and/or abused dogs. Before Luke passed I promised him that I would continue to rescue animals and help educate on how people can become more involved in rescuing abused animals. GOD definitely heard the promise I made and divinely placed specials needs dogs into my life. These dogs have come from some of the most severe abuse and/or were born with physical disabilities and I became a 5013c non-profit dog sanctuary. I recognized how my dogs started to inspire others, because they are truly loved and are clueless that they are different. I realized they are a perfect example to teach others that we are beautifully and wonderfully made. PLUS they and love to serve others. After time in prayer and reflection I realized what a blessing it is to serve other and assist in contributing to ones local community. The goal of Love from Luke expanded to have previously abused individuals (unwanted, out-fostered youth, domestic violence and human traffic survivors) help heal through the animals and later have them become active in training and working with the dog too. Creating a win-win for all members of the community, the person and the dog both brings joy, laughter, companionship and entertainment (for sure) to others. Let's face it, this would needs more healing and love. Additionally, as I was writing the book more ideas came to me that I know other pet parents and animal lovers would appreciate and before I knew I had a store of healthy pet treats, custom tee-shirts and jewelry with the photos of my rescues. If you live in the Florida area or come to visit please look for me at local crafts shows or any outdoor events where vendors are welcomed! If you bring your fur-baby they can sample my treats!
