The owner is very informative. Good service. Now I just have to wait and see if my dog likes raw.

Positive experience overall with a great selection of food at reasonable prices. However, it would enhance the atmosphere if we could maintain a judgment-free environment. Personal opinions on tail and ear cropping are controversial, and it's advisable to refrain from expressing them while conducting business.

I switched my dogs to a new raw food after speaking with the owner. She helped me find the food and supplements that my dogs needed the most and it was a really pleasant experience. My dogs are doing so much better on their new food and they really love it as well.

Visited this shop for the first time yesterday. Katie was super knowledgable and kind to our dogs. We left with samples and suggestions and returned today to start our dogs on a raw food diet. The dogs are so very happy and excited about their food and new diet, it is something to see! Lots of prancing and smiling and happy behaviour - and a little confusion about what to do with the chicken feet but that didn't last too long!

Great place with VERY reasonable prices on complete raw dog food meals, supplements, and treats. Some very cute themed socks and mugs as well! Amazing service, quick pickup for online orders, AND great information sessions if you're new to raw.

We had such a pleasant and positive experience here. I had been wanting to transition to raw but was overwhelmed by it all. We got to go into the store (with the dogs of course) and sit down for about an hour for a consultation. It was extremely informative, we got a lot of advice and felt a lot less stressed about it all. I think the part that made me most anxious was knowing how to feed the right portions, they did the calculations for us and explained it ( I think back to it now and laugh at myself a little bit). Our dogs and cats have been on raw for about 4-5 months and we have noticed a HUGE difference. Can’t think of ever switching back to kibble. They always answer any questions we have any time as well. Thank you so much 😊

Truly fantastic place, people & products! We have 2 German Shepherd's - one who had extensive skin conditions for the first 2 years of her life. We tried every vet food, allergy medicine, etc. before switching over to a raw diet and every single one of her issues has since resolved (going on 4 years). Incredible result and far less expensive to feed our dog's raw food in comparison to allergy food + allergy meds every month. Highly Recommend!

The owners are very specific to my dogs needs and gave us lots of samples. They also make an amazing london fog which is a great bonus!

DO NOT GO HERE!! I would give zero stars if I could!First of all little back story , I have been feeding my dogs raw. I found this cafe and I thought might be good to check it out. I met with its owner named Lynne. She talks like she is a Veterinarian and she knows everything!! She also gets her “knowledge” from “dogs naturally magazine”. That magazine is not a legit source of information. The second she mentioned that magazine I knew I would believe what she says! She learns things online.On the other hand Kathy is great - but I wouldn't go to a place where the owner learns from a magazine.She told me to feed my small dog (15 pounds ) what a large dog would eat. Since I have always feeding raw to my dogs I knew she not to do what she says - but for someone else this could go completely wrong and make their dog sick or over weight! doesn’t care about your pet - she just wants the money!! There are many other places to buy raw food and they don’t even have a large selection of brands or meats. I do not recommend!!

Amazing place to learn about improving your animals health. My dog had every issue you could think of. I tried over 10 types of hypoallergenic food nothing worked. Within 3 days of me following Lynn’s suggestions he was rash free and stomach problem free. Less trips to the vet for ear and eye infections. Love this place. Been a client for 4 years I recommend this store/experience every pet owner!

Poncho loves to get his meals there now. He now acts like a wolf. 🐕

My dog was suffering from intermittent digestive upset for months. I tried multiple name brand dry foods to no success. After the 2-3 week adjustment period my dog has not had a single issue since being put on a raw diet. His ears don't build up wax as much and are not as irritated. His teeth are pearly white. His coat is shiny. Only suggestion would be that for orders over a certain amount some kind of free delivery would be nice.

This is the only place that I could find in the Ottawa area that sells cakes for dogs, which my dogs appeared to like. They also sell Happy Goat Coffee among other drinks.
