Why i change food for winter

With the cold weather coming soon. I start looking at new foods. Foods that are high in fat and oils. This is for both me and my dogs. 

We have seen that most dogs that live in very cold conditions have a very fatty and oily diet, this is because oils and fats hep keep the coat and skin well hydrated and insulated. It also stimulates new hair growth and a thicker coat for the winter will help your dogs more then you may think. 

In the summer i feed a very large poultry diet and maybe some Dutch and lamb every now and then. Withthe winter coming i slowly increase the land and add fish to their diet. Salmon is a great prep for the winter and offers the dogs great support for the winter. 

 It is also very important to look after he joints as the temperature decreases, especially in older dogs or your working breeds.

Go to your food specialist and ask them what to do for your breed and how to look after them for the winter.

The shadows behind the photos

I have gotten a lot of negative feedback from people over the last 12 months, as I ask for support in the form of sponsorships I get told that I am not able to ask for any support due to the fact that I am living the dream everyone else wishes to live. Well I can promise it’s not all just beautiful landscapes and pretty pictures. 

I have given up my house for a tent,

I have given up my car for a pair of hiking shoes,

I have given up my bed for a blanket on the floor, 

I have given up my family and friends for a community that doesn’t understand me,

I have given up breakfast and lunch many days so I can afford to take my dogs out and have fun,

I have given everything up to live my life,

I made the choice to reach for my dream and I live it.

Is it always easy? No

Can I manage to survive here? I don’t know.

Do I struggle to put food on my plate? Yes.

Do my dogs ever go hungry? No. 

Do they ever stay at home? No. 

Would I change my life? No. 

If I am asking for support, it’s not because I am looking for an easy way out, it’s not because I want you to feel sorry for me. It is purely because I am not able to carry on posting those beautiful photos, it is because I can’t give my dogs the most amazing experiences 

I ask for help because everything I do here I do it to help and change the world for dogs. And I don’t ask them to pay me for that. 


Why do you wake?

I live to be alive. The ultimate feeling of life is to feast, to drink, to have relationships, to discover both the external and internal worlds. I live so I can love. I hurt so I can love again. I wake up so I can fill my day and once my body is tired I rest my head to prepare for the next. 
I wake because I was given a gift. I wake because I have the possibility to wake. 

I wake because I believe there will come a day where life will be peace, where all heartbeats will be free, where the world will live on love.

Depression in dogs

So after one month of traveling I started seeing something wrong with my dogs. What it was, was never something I would have expected. 

Depression. Previously I knew they reacted to there environments but didn’t think it would have gone this bad. The whole story of dogs just being ok with you being there is not entirely true. You being there and happy makes it easier for them to adapt but they have their own feelings. 

I ended my plan very early, we left on a 12 month walk through the mountains and well month one was great and then we started to really move. Each night in a different house. Different families and people. This slowly got too much. Altair (my fragile boy) decided this is not making him happy and well being as close as I am to my dogs. I felt what he was going through. 

We took a 200€ emergency train ride back to family in Germany and after 2 days they were happy again. I went to the vet to make sure they have no physical problems or health issues. I was told that my dogs were some of the best kept and healthiest they have seen coming in. 

Getting home I wanted to get to the bottom of what the cause of this depression. 

Well my intellect of a friend, Google. Said there are many things that cause depression in dogs. Some are; loss of a family member(We have lost our whole family, left them all behind.), change in environment(only travelling every day so this is possible), change in food(it was impossible to find my food here and took 6 months before I go it again.), not having a place or consistency. I stopped here. It was obviously depression, just to have one of these is a possible cause for depression. We have them all. My poor dogs. So we needed to cancel all the plans we made and needed to start a new one. 

We apologized to all the people banking on us doing what we set out to do but for my dogs they all understood. 

Now that we have a home and a car they have come right. It was hard but we are still here in the mountains and still living as far from the society system as possible. 

We are living free. It brings its problems but also its gifts.
