WANT TO KNOW WHY THE LOW-COST, NUTRIENT-PACKED “SARDINE” IS A MUST ADD TO YOUR PET’S DIET PLAN? THEN CHECK OUT THE “TOP 10” REASONS WHY!

If you’re like me, you’re always searching for an herb or whole food add that will help extend the life of your furry BFF. 
But if I told you one of these treasures was a small, salt-water, soft-boned, oil-rich, silvery fish that smells worse than most grandparents’ feet, would you still try it out?

Hailed as one of the richest sources of omega-3, vitamin D and vitamin B-12 (to name a few), this whole food addition (which got its name from the Italian island of Sardinia) is called the sardine!
I can hear the groaning now… “Sardines look and smell gross!” most of you are probably saying. 
True, but if you check out my top 10 reasons why you should ignore the smell and fall in love, you won’t regret it AND your pet will love you for it!

Check out these 10 awesome reasons as to why this is a must-add:

1.) PROTEIN PACKED
Your carnivorous dog and cat need protein for proper muscle and connective tissue development. Protein provides structure for skin, hair, joints, bones and nails to name a few! Sardines and fish, which are considered a high quality protein, are full of the essential amino acids your pets cannot produce and need from this type food.

2.) JOINT AND BONE SUPPORT
Sardines are not only one of the most concentrated sources of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA for joint health, but they are packed with a rich source of bone-building and bone strengthening vitamin D!

3.) HEART HEALTH
Sardines are an excellent source of vitamin B12, which promotes an overall cardiovascular well-being. Now tie in the DHA and EPA that are also found in the sardine and you have a cocktail of awesomeness aiding in heart health!

4.) BEATS UP ON CANCER
Studies have shown that omega-3s found in the sardine can inhibit the formation of tumours and prevent cancer from metastasizing. They do this by inducing a process in cancer cells called apoptosis. Today, science is also showing that an ample source of vitamin D, from the sardine, may turn out to play an important role in the prevention of certain types of cancer as well.

5.) BRAIN HEALTH
Studies in people show that supplementing with DHA (found in sardines), is beneficial in supporting cognitive health in aging brains. A study on beagle puppies found DHA improved cognitive learning and motor skills during the developmental stages. Therefore, sardines help sharpen your pet’s learning abilities, memory, eye function and psychomotor skills.

6.) HELPS RELIEVE ALLERGIES
Research suggests that supplementing with fatty acids found in sardines, is useful in preventing atopy (allergies to inhaled substances such as pollens and molds) from developing in young animals. Also, because of the incredible anti-inflammatory properties that the sardines carry, they are a great add to help reduce the chronic redness and inflamed skin some pets experience from these allergies.

7.) CAN HELP YOUR PET LOSE WEIGHT
The rich source of omega-3s found in the sardine can activate a type of protein that turns on fat-burning genes in your pet’s body! Used correctly, they can help slim down pudgy pets.

8.) POSITIVE EFFECTS AGAINST SEIZING PETS
Research shows that the omega, packed in the sardine, contains potent anti-inflammatory properties that fight the inflammation mediators in epileptic patients while increasing seizure thresholds, in other words, helping to suppress attacks.

9.) KIDNEY SUPPORT
A study on dogs found that while omega 6 supplementation accelerated the decline in kidney function of early stages of kidney disease, supplementing with omega-3 had protective effects. In human studies, it was found that people with long-term use of fish oil, like the oil found in sardines, slowed the loss of kidney function!

10.) MOOD IMPROVER AND ANTI-DEPRESSANT
EPA and DHA found in sardines, according to research, can also improve mood. EPA from marine sources like sardines can decrease cytokines associated with depression.

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE AMOUNT OF TOXINS FOUND IN TODAY’S FISH SUPPLY? AREN’T SARDINES POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS?

You see, sardines are a short lived fish. Therefore they don’t have a lot of time to accumulate a ton of toxins from the water. They are at the bottom of the aquatic food chain as well, meaning they only feast on plankton. So they don’t concentrate heavy metals, such as mercury, and contaminants as do other fish.

OK, NOW FOR THE MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION: HOW MUCH SARDINE SHOULD YOU FEED TO YOUR PET?

Let’s go to expert and pet food formulator, Steve Brown, for this one shall we?
“The best canned sardines for dogs (and cats) are those in water with no salt added. Avoid sardines packed in soy, corn, sunflower, safflower, or other omega-6 rich oils. 
Use the entire can of sardines within two days after opening it, and refrigerate the open can, so that the fragile fats do not go rancid.
Don’t overdo it! EPA and DHA, like most nutrients, provide wonderful health benefits in small amounts, and are detrimental in excess amounts or without sufficient antioxidant protection.

Here are my sardine recommendations for adult dogs.

Feed twice this much to puppies and pregnant or lactating females.

Dog’s Weight 3.75-oz can sardines
5 lbs 1/4 can per week
15 lbs 1/2 can per week
25 lbs 5/8 can per week
50 lbs 1 can per week
100 lbs 1 3/4 cans per week

A 3.75-ounce can of sardines has about 200 calories, so reduce the amount of dry food given on “sardine days” accordingly. Rule of thumb: One can of sardines in water has about the same number of calories as ½ cup of most dog foods.

For cats, no more than a 1/4 to maximum 1/2 a week.
Remember to always check with your veterinarian for specific doses, and always practice variation, moderation and balance when introducing new foods to your pets.

So go grab a clothes pin, plug your nose, and add some aquatic love to your pet’s bowls. Most will love you for it!

“According to research by behaviorists, a dog’s behavioral makeup is 35 percent genetic and 65 percent due to socialization, nutrition, health care, training, and management. In other words, socialization cannot change temperament, but it certainly plays a role in behavior modification. Opportunities that are missed during the critical socialization period puts puppies at risk of becoming shy, fearful, defensive adult dogs. Animal behaviorist have shown that puppies exposed to increasingly complex stimuli, or enrichment, sought out complex environments and were dominant over “stimulus-poor” puppies. Those that lacked enrichment were inhibited, fearful and looked for less complex environments, and often compensated with self-destructive behaviors such as chewing and licking.” -AKC.ORG

I have always known that socialization was important but it wasn’t until I invested in Puppy Culture did I learn that what I thought I knew was only the tip of the iceberg. Socialization (and enrichment) is so much more than throwing a few cool toys in the puppy pen. We proudly use the Puppy Culture Program and our puppies are exposed to age appropriate stimuli, enrichment, socialization and training. This program is for puppies 0-12 weeks (and even older puppies benefit) and we recommend all of our puppy buyers invest in the DVD/Streaming video and continue with the program after the puppy goes home. Socialization does not stop when they leave me at 8 weeks, which is why we also recommend all of our puppies enroll in a puppy and or basic obedience class.

Please watch the videos below for more information on Puppy Culture.

Amara, Winter and Reign are in heat. It has been 8 months since their previous heat and this time around they have completely synced up. I know I said I didn’t want 3 litters at the same time, but we have made an exception based on our extensive interest list and our future breeding plans. Late Spring/Early Summer of 2020 my husband, myself and my youngest child are planning a mini vacation. Our first out of state trip together… ever. My older 2 children will be here puppy sitting. While we only plan on being gone a week, we DO NOT want to have puppies if I/we can not be here to care for them and train them. So the plan is to NOT have any litters the first half of 2020. In fact if they keep cycling every 8 months our next litters after this fall will not be until late 2020 early 2021.

It will be 9-11 days before the girls are ready to breed. I will post when we get confirmed breedings. I am guessing the 3 litters will be born within the same week. If you are interested in placing a deposit on our Fall 2019 litters please make sure I have a current puppy questionnaire/application on file. I will take 2 deposits per litter after breeding has taken place (to ensure we do in fact have litters on the way). We do offer return Supernova Siberian families priority. I only take 2 deposits per litter to ensure we don’t take more deposits then pups available. Remaining deposits will be taken after pups are born. **Reserve deposit holders can choose between litters but they will have to choose after reserve picks. For example. Amara’s 2nd pick can opt to pick a puppy from Winter’s litter but they will go third.

Winter x Tyrion: 1st pick available, 2nd pick available

Reign x Tyrion 1st pick reserved. 2nd pick available

Amara x Ghost: 1st pick reserved, 2nd pick available

We had a tragic event happen. Due to human error and a faulty gate latch our pack got back to the coop and killed our flock. Backyard chickens was an adventure I took on for one purpose…I wanted our pack to have access to organic farm fresh eggs, having enough for our family was a bonus. I knew having chickens and the huskies was going to be risky. I thought we had a great set up. The chickens were kept away from the pack. It took 2 gates to get to them. For over a year it worked great and I learned to love my girls and enjoy tending to them. This incident was beyond heartbreaking.

Thankfully a few chicks managed to get out of their coop and under the fence. We could hear them but not find them. After trespassing and searching our neighbors yards during a thunderstorm my 2 sons and I managed to find 4 of the chicks. I called a friend who had a flock of her own, Tina, who is also a Supernova puppy owner, and talked to her about taking the surviving chicks. I was heartbroken. I was very angry at myself, it was my job to keep them safe and I blew it. She said she would take them but for me to think about it before deciding. Things like this happen and to not be so hard on myself. I called my husband (he’s out of town for work) and he didn’t even give me a chance to give up. He assured me we would re evaluate our coop and the gates and make any and all improvements necessary. My 13 year old was also adamant that we start over especially after searching all day for the chicks. So I found a local chicken (person? breeder?) and last night we added 8 chicks to our flock of four babies. We are going to start over.

Because our flock is apart of our family and I share our adventures with them, it was important for me to share this experience as well. Raising animals is not easy. The ups and downs and heartbreak is real. I have learned that shit happens… some you can control some you can’t. And if it is human error then we need to address it, fix it and try again if we can. Once again, I want to thank my husband for supporting me on this crazy journey, my friends for listening to me cry, and my kids for being there to help. I could not have made it through the last few days without them.

Triple digits are predicted for this weekend in my neck of the woods, so I thought I would share some tips on keeping your pups cool.

*Exercise (including walks, running, extensive rough play) in the mornings and late evenings only.

*Keep a watch out for hot pavement

*Plenty of Shade

*Keep water bowls filed with fresh water

*Kiddies pools filled with water

*Add ice to the kiddie pool to change it up

*Frozen treats (freeze broth, blend and freeze fruits, freeze watermelon chunks, frozen blueberries, make “ice cream” with yogurt,bananas and peanut butter, there are tons of ideas online)

*Water the ground under a shade tree, the wet ground cools their tummy

*Keep them IN DOORS during the hottest part of the day. SERIOUSLY Bring them in!!!

*Once inside if they still seem hot use fans and cooling mats.

*NEVER LEAVE THEM I A HOT CAR!!!

There is a lot of hype and misinformation surrounding Puppy Culture. So I wanted to share my experiance with it.

I was originally a skeptic. I had a hard time believing breeders needed a program to raise puppies. I have been using enrichment, practicing socialization, even doing potty box training and crate conditioning all without Puppy Culture for over 6 years. After hearing many breeders bragging about it, I decided to invest in the program to see what it was all about. I was very intrigued by what I saw. I began incorporating Puppy Culture protocols into our program. I loved how the science behind these protocols were explained. The results were amazing and it took what I was already doing and expanded on that by a thousand! These little guys are so smart and ready to learn. My husband was beyond annoyed that I was spending so much money on the program because he felt I was already doing so much…. but he was blown away when he watched our puppies successfully manding. He fully supports the program now. I am committed to raising our puppies with this program and I am inspired to re train my adults.

With that being said I want to clear up a few things about the program.

*Puppy Culture is not the same as typical enrichment and socialization. Yes, It involves both concepts but it is so much more. So don’t let cute toys and fun equipment in a puppy pen confuse you. Puppy Culture is specific protocols introduced at specific stages of development. You can watch a video about Puppy Culture HERE.

*I am not a better than anyone else because I use Puppy Culture and you can certainly purchase a healthy, happy puppy that hasn’t been raised with Puppy Culture. But for me, I feel I am a better breeder than I was a year ago and I feel it is up to me to make sure I offer puppies who well rounded, even tempered, properly socialized, and who are emotionally and physically ready for family life.

*Puppy Culture is ideal for puppies 0-12 weeks but many of the protocols can be introduced at a later stage In fact I recommended all my buyers continue with Puppy Culture when they bring their puppies home. It is not to late to use Puppy Culture for your puppy even if they were not raised with it!! If you would like to purchase Puppy Culture or view all the video and books in the program please click HERE.

If you have any questions about my program or how I raise my puppies please feel free to message me. .

Breeders all price their puppies differently. Some price based on quality (show quality, vs pet quality) some based on pedigree (bloodlines), some on the type of registration, some on the time and effort they put into raising the puppy, some are priced to sell fast, some are priced to make as much profit as they can, and some are priced by location and the going rate…… What a breeder chooses to charge for their puppies is their business, and there is no right or wrong….unless what they charge is based on propaganda, embellishments, and lies.

When you decide to purchase a puppy from a breeder, I hope that you research them, and ask them questions about their breeding program. Some warning signs to look for are breeders who charge more for gender, color (eye or coat) coat type (woolly), etc. There are no rare colors or coats in the husky breed and one is not more valuable then another. With the exception of woolly coats, woolly coats are considered faults in the show ring and are not breed standard so if you are looking to show or want a puppy that represents breed standards, you would want to stay away from woolly. While some registration may have a higher value depending what you are looking for (show vs pet), a non registered pup should never be higher than a registered pup. Also if a person claims the dog has champion lines or working lines, ask to see the pedigree, anything back further then 3 generations has very little effect on the puppy being sold. Watch out for people who make up things like “gold champion” and “double champion”. If the parents are being shown or are championed the breeder will be happy to show you proof by showing ribbons, photos of the dog with ribbons and judge and or certificates. Ask for proof of all claims made by the breeder, they should gladly supply it. In general pet quality prices should be greatly lower than show quality pups. I would question why a pet quality breeder is charging more than a show breeder. If the breeder says their prices are based on their lines, ask what makes them so special, they should be able to tell. Also anyone can buy a service dog vest and put it on their dog. That has very little merit without proof of the dog preforming it’s task. There is a huge difference between a dog who preforms a service/task and an emotional support animal….. one needs extensive training the other doesn’t. If they claim to train the pups, that they are seen by a vet, that they have health certificates, etc ask for documentation. Watch out for breeders who make outrageous claims about themselves,like being a veterinarian or a trainer. ASK FOR PROOF!!

Our current price for puppies is $850. I welcome all questions you may have about our prices. I raise pet quality puppies, sold on a spay/neuter contract. Our puppies are akc and or ckc registered. I provide the neopar (parvo) vaccination at about 5.5 weeks and our vet not only provides a hands on check up and fecal test (for parasites and protozoa) but they now administer the first combo shot at approximately 7.5 weeks. This guarantees the shot was in fact administered and administered properly but also that your vet will accept it and not re vaccinate. Many vets do not accept shots given by breeders and will restart the series, this is not only an added cost for you but also puts your puppy at risk for being over vaccinated. Puppies are sold with a 72 hour health guarantee and a genetic guarantee. Your puppy goes though ENS (early neurological stimulation) and is potty box trained making the transition to potty training seamless. We introduce age appropriate socialization and enrichment actives that include sights, sounds and smells. We have invested in the Puppy Culture program and each puppy is given one on one attention as they go through the Puppy Culture protocols. Puppy Culture introduces clicker training, introduces crate training and focuses on shaping a well rounded puppy with a great a temperament that easily adapts to new situations and is ready for more extensive puppy training that we hope you will continue. We video and photograph their progress. Our puppies are whelped and raised indoors in a clean environment where they quickly get accustom to family living and get attention from all family and pack members. We have 3 generations of dogs in our breeding program. Tyrion has working lines starting in his 3rd generation and Reign has champion lines starting in her 3rd generation and working lines starting in her 4th generation. Even so, I do not use that information to sell pups, and while that information can be considered fun facts, I personally feel that has little merit. Prices are subject to increase depending on many factors including on if we provide additional care for our puppies and if we use an outside stud with a valued pedigree (for example if we breed Reign to a show quality stud)

I think our current pricing is fair based on the care we provide for our pups, the work we put into our pups and in some cases the pedigree of our pups. Our pricing is about mid range in our location, meaning there are breeders who charge less and and breeders who charge more.

At the end of the day you pay for what you value and what you want in a pup and that is ok. I just hate to see good people lied to and manipulated into purchasing a pup. I have seen people brag about their show quality pups in groups only to be told their pup is far from show quality. There was even a recent headline about a breeder in San Antonio selling pups with forged vet documents. It is sad and heartbreaking the lengths people will go to to sell a dog.

There are great breeders locally and nationwide. If I do not have what you are looking for I have no problem recommending a breeder who might.
