Each of our recipes has been specifically designed to fit your dog’s personality and health. While we have found that each element tends to suit specific breeds of dogs, we know that may not always be the case and encourage you to discover what works best for yours.
The Wood Dog is strong, confident, competitive and outgoing. Your Wood Dog will get through a lot just on their bravery. They will be the first to bark at the mailman and will protect you in any situation. They need those long walks. They often bark and can lunge at other dogs, all in the name of protecting you. They have a brave heart, and their confidence can sometimes get them into trouble. Your Wood Dog is incredibly determined. When they set their minds to something, like protecting the yard from that squirrel, nothing will get in their way.
The "people person" of the dog world, the Fire Dog is funny, charismatic, and loves to be the center of attention. They are very friendly and affectionate and insist on being noticed. Fire dogs are very "chatty", can bark a lot and often become restless. They are the ones that get overly excited when you walk through the door. But they will always be your lap dog-picking their "person" in the family as their soul mate. When they are not eating right and their system gets out of balance, they may experience heart disease, separation anxiety, inflammatory bowel disease or pancreatitis.
Earth Dogs are our relaxed and lovable friends who are easy going and friendly to other dogs and people. Extremely loyal, they like nothing more than spending their time eating and sleeping! They will eat anything and everything and are prone to becoming overweight. Chances are, if your dog chewed up your favorite shoes when they were a puppy, they're an Earth Dog. They prefer short walks, or none at all, but, when you're filling up their food bowl, they'll come running! When they are not eating right they can experience intermittent bouts of vomiting, obesity.
The Best Friend
Often a bit of a "Scaredy Cat", it takes the Water Dog a while to become acquainted with places and people. Curious, but fearful at first, they will need coaxing to feel comfortable. They can sometimes nip or bite if things are moving too fast. They like solitude and quite thinking, although when they are nervous they will seek comfort with you or one of the other dogs in the house. Water dogs like to keep you nearby, often sitting at your feet. When out of balance, the Water Dog can experience rear weakness, bone and growth related disease, urinary incontinence, arthritis and kidney disease.
