I decided early 2016 that it was finally the right time in my life to get a dog. My research into which breed would suit me best took me to German Shepherd dogs and my research into which dog food took me to raw. By chance the GSD breeder I wanted to get a puppy from was a raw feeder so all good and I picked up an 8 week old GSD ball of energy (Kern) in September 2016. However, the problem I encountered was where I could buy the raw dog food. I thought it would be no problem to find a shop selling raw dog food, but I discovered at that time that there were very few specialist raw dog food retailers, the choice was mainly online with deliveries, which wasn’t convenient for me. It was then that I had the idea to set up a shop and discussed the idea with my Dad, ‘that sounds really good, I think you may have something there’ was his reply. My Dad sadly passed away in December 2017 and it was a couple of months later that I decided to follow through with my idea and so I officially opened the doors to Canine Raw & More 1 August 2018…it has been a real lifestyle change, but I love it, I get to spend so much time with Kern and meet lots of dog loving people and their dogs!
