There is a lot of confusion out there on what are the best products, the best food to feed, what leashes are best, what kind of flea control to use, holistic or allopathic health care, obedience training, even bathing. The list goes on and on......

My answers after 16 years of practice are:
1. Best products? Joyful Hands of course! Why? I have tried all the products out on the market with my own animals and to my dismay, they aren't good enough. Why are Joyful Hands products so great? They are made with the finest organic, all vegan ingredients and with love and above all they WORK! :)

2. Best food to feed? Homemade food made by your loving hands consisting of organic raw foods. Wheat, corn and dairy products create allergens that wear down the immune system causing all kinds of illnesses from irritable bowel syndrome to arthritis to cancer and heart disease. If you are dealing with a pet that has severe auto-immune disease, meat will aggravate the problem.

3. What leashes are best?
The Halti leash and the Gentle Leader.

4. Fleas and your pets. Fleas are like sharks, they clean up and only go after the weakest animals. In order to clear up a flea problem, you must address the issue of an unhealthy immune system. Why choose Joyful Hands Flea Program? It is the most effective way of getting rid of fleas once and for all and it won't kill your pets while doing it. For more information on our flea program please visit our flea prevention page.

5.Holistic verses Allopathic? Holistic treatments awaken and support the natural processes within the animal to prevent illness and combat disease and stress. Allopathic medicine relies solely on surgeries and drugs. The steroids, antibiotics and continual bombardment of booster immunizations weaken the animal's immune system and therefore weaken the animal's spirit lessening their quality of life.

6.Best form of obedience training? One that involves positive involvement with your animal. No thrashing the animal about and yelling at it. This is the form of obedience that is most widely used. Positive obedience turns learning into FUN. The animal feels a sense of pleasure associated with commands creating the most effective form of obedience training. Please call Freddy at 619-933-dogs (3647) For more info please visit Freddy's Page on our site.
Our personal trainer Mary Lou is tops with our pups! We highly recommend her! Please visit her page for more info.

7. How often should I bathe my pet? No more than once a week. In order for an animal to maintain their natural acid and pH balance in their coat, the oils must remain present. Bathing more than once a week depletes these special healing oils creating an imbalance that leads to skin disorders.

We hope that we have not added to your confusion, but have succeeding in enlightening you and bringing you a renewed sense of JOY!
