My name is Silvana Cottitto. I am a passionate dog breeder and started developing my own barf varieties 12 years ago.
I have always had a love for dogs - as well as a love for healthy nutrition. I firmly believe that proper nutrition is critical to the health of both humans and dogs. In recent years in particular, there has been an increasing interest in healthy eating - also among pet owners. Ready-made products, frozen food and fast food are being avoided more and more often, because today we know that such a diet is anything but good for us.
It is not much different with animals. We know that this artificial food is not really good for us and our animal friends, but why are dogs still being fed daily from cans with "meat" that is no longer recognizable? It's not the owners who are to blame either, because I bet that every dog owner wants only the best for their dog.
Have you ever wondered what dogs used to eat before there was canned food for dogs? How did dogs survive in this world when there was no diet food, nutritional supplements or supplements? No puppy food, no senior food and no allergy food?
It was not difficult for me to recognize that BARF represents a healthy and, for me personally, the best possible species-appropriate diet for my dogs - and I had also experienced that with my dogs myself!
Barfing in dogs has many advantages, including:
- The fur is shiny, very soft and does not smell
- No more digestive problems
- The amount of faeces is relatively small and dry
- The claws are not brittle
- Clear eyes and mucous membrane around the
- The dogs are generally healthy and have no allergies
- Healthy, white teeth
- More energy
- Strengthened immune system
- Prevention of diabetes and arthritis
That is why barfing is about a healthy and varied diet with heart and passion. BARF stands for organic, species-appropriate raw food and is the most natural nutrition that you can give your dog.
