About the Founder, Dave Decker.
My first Dog/ son was a magnificent 120 lb. giant chocolate lab named Hershey. He helped me through a terrible series of events spanning over several years of my life. While walking Hershey, some folks would stop me and say,at first they mistook him for a small brown bear.He would walk around town with a lumbering gentle nature and the kids loved him, without hesitation.Hershey exuded kindness and unconditional love. He patently taught me about Dogs and nature as Dogs do,when we pay attention to them. I believe that Dogs are our teachers and guides that teach us how to have fun and play ,as well as teaching us kindness, empathy and unconditional love.
To my boy Hershey, I have done all of this in your honor, for you saved my life. I will love and miss you forever, Your dad.

Dogs Benefit from Oats
Adding oats to a pet's diet is a simple way to impart many nutritional
benefits. Besides nutritional benefits, many other benefits, from nervine
to disease treatment, can be realized, too. First, let's take a closer
look at some of the many health benefits associated with oats when they
are simply added to a pet's diet.
Nutritive - Simply put, oats are nutritious, being naturally high in
"good" nutrients and low in "bad" ones.
Oats are high in:
Protein (interestingly, wild oats contain from 27-37% protein while
cultivated varieties average about 17%). According to the World Health
Organization, oat protein is equivalent in quality to soy protein. So,
equal to meat, milk and egg protein.Soluble fiber (the fiber that helps
keep cholesterol levels low)Levels of iron, manganese, zinc, and B
vitamins (pantothenic acid, B5, and folate, B9)Oats are low in:
Gluten (some is present, but not nearly as much as in wheat)Genetically
Modified Organisms (so far, oats are not grown using GMO)Nervine - Oats
are considered a nervine, an herbal compound that acts as a general nerve
tonic, calming the nerves when necessary, stimulating their activity when
needed. Oats are used for treating a variety of nervous disorders.
Herbal - Oats benefit several body organs and systems, including: skin,
nervous system, stomach, spleen, lungs, and the urinary and reproductive
systems. Herbal qualities of oats include:

variety of diseases in humans and animals, including: inflammatory
conditions, mental or physical exhaustion, depression, dyspepsia,
insomnia, fevers, sexual dysfunctions and as a tonic during menopause or
Oats can also be beneficial when applied externally (topically). Remember
that an animal's skin is its largest organ, and there is an active
absorption of many substances, thus adding whole-body benefits from
external applications of oats. These unique health benefits can include:
Anti-inflammatory and Calming - soothes itchiness and eczema, thus helping
calm the animal while he heals.Healing - High levels of minerals and
vitamins in the seeds may help with skin healing.Here are some tips on how
to use oats topically:

outlets, and many have added healing herbs. These shampoos are generally
mild, calming,soothing, anti-itch,and anti-inflammatory.
