About Us

Who are we?

Hi! I'm Allison and dogs are my life :) First and foremost, I am "Mom" to 3 rescue dogs: Carli, a Potcake from the Bahamas, Grace, a Potcake from Turks & Caicos and Flyer, a Jampup from Jamaica. You can see them featured in the photo gallery wearing their Natural Tick Collars :)

I am a certified Canine Nutritionist and I am passionate about helping pet owners improve the health of their pets.

My Qualifications

I have earned a certificate in Canine Nutrition and have been helping clients with my consultation business, The Pet Chef, for close to 3 years. I specialize in helping pets who have health issues, by improving their diet and offering natural solutions to things like flea & tick control.

In addition to my certification, I have also complete the following training:

  • Nutrition for Veterinary Technicians Course from University of Guelph
  • Currently studying in the Animal Herbalism course through The Possible Canine
  • Member of College of Integrative Veterinary Therapies
  • Yearly Canine Nutrition Conferences such as The Raw Round Up, Canine Natural Health Symposium
  • I am constantly learning taking courses and keeping up to date with the newest advancements in Canine Nutrition

In my volunteer time, I work with Eastern Ontario Potcake Rescue - an Ottawa-based dog rescue committed to saving as many island dogs from the Caribbean as possible. This has given great experience in implementing natural therapies - most notably a natural heartworm disease protocol - to help these often sick and malnourished dogs get back to better health!


Q: Where are you located?

I live in Ottawa, ON and all items in the store are shipped from my home location.

Q: How do I know you are qualified to help my pet (nutrition consult)?

Please see the "My Qualifications" page here for my educational background and work experience.

Q: Do you offer a guarantee on your products?

If you are unhappy with any of your products, please contact me and I will work with you to provide a satisfactory product. For example, if you order a tick collar and when it arrives, you find it does not fit as expected, we will take it back and modify it for you. We CANNOT guarantee the effectiveness of any product listed here - all evidence is based personally on myself and people I know using these products with great success.

Q. How long does shipping take?

You can use the shipping calculator at check-out to get a delivery timeframe or, if you prefer to email me before ordering, I can let you know when to expect your order.
