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.
I have earned a certificate in Canine Nutrition and have been helping clients with my consultation business, (formerly under the name "The Pet Chef"), since 2015. I specialize in helping pet owners wade through the vast amount of information and misinformation available in today's "Dr. Google" age. I love to help 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 completed the following:
In my volunteer time, I work in dog rescue - committed to saving as many island dogs from the Caribbean as possible. This has given me 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!
A: I live in Ottawa, ON and all items in the store are shipped from my home location. Nutrition Consultations are done remotely via email, or remote audio/video call.
A: Please see the "My Qualifications" info above for my educational background and work experience.
A: Simply put, no. Just like any tick product on the market (including the ones prescribed by your veterinarian), I cannot guarantee these products will work for your pet. I can only tell you from my own personal experience and the experiences of hundreds of pet parents in Ontario, that we have used these collars for several years and have successfully remained tick-free. This includes walking through the bush, playing at the cottage and being in high-risk areas. We hope you will have the same success!
Note that we do not offer refunds should this product not work for you.
A: While we focus on the tick prevention aspect of EM Collars, most customers indicate these collars DO work to protect against fleas. We personally have never had fleas, but we cannot guarantee that these will work to prevent them
A: No, we are a small home-based business. All orders are placed online and fulfilled from my home location in Ottawa, ON. I do offer free local pick-up for customers in the Ottawa area.
