|Susan Crawford - DOX Bullmastifs
BARF World considers Susan Crawford an exemplary
breeder. Susan feeds Dr. Billinghurst BARF Diets exclusively
and continues to have brilliant success with her DOX Bullmastiffs.
Susan is a determined woman when it comes to nutrition as
evidenced by her story about Peter (Please visit our website
to read the full story under our Breeder Profile.) However,
what we find most special about Susan is her willingness
to teach and help others. She is a great mentor and will
expand the knowledge of raw feeding to others. We are so
fortunate that she has joined the campaign to return animals
to their evolutionary diet!
“The DOX breeding program has produced DOX
the all time top producing sire in the history of the breed!
In Canada, DOX dogs have won the Canadian National Specialty
several times as well as ranked #1 bullmastiff in 1994 and
2000. In the USA, DOX dogs have consistently ranked in the
top ten for most of the last ten years, including some years
in which several DOX dogs shared in the top ten. The American
Bullmastiffs Association’s National Specialty has seen
DOX dogs consistently winning Best Stud Dog, Winners Dog
and Winners Bitch as well as awards of Merit, Sweeps, Futurity
and others too numerous to mention.
Additionally we have shown in Italy, France, Monte Carlo,
Austria, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, Chile and the Bahamas.
We have participated in obedience, junior showmanship and
judged at the ABA National Specialty. DOX dogs are the foundation
behind many successful breeding kennels both here and abroad.
Peter’s Experience with BARF!
Peter was a great dog, super type and temperament, good
bite and excellent movement. I couldn’t ask for more!
But he got a hotspot. Not your average hotspot, though, because
it came up fast and covered 20% of the dog and involved enlarged
lymph glands. Over the next two years Peter’s hotspots
got worse. They were bigger, more frequent and always involved
a stay at the vet’s office. If he didn’t have
a hotspot, he had open sores all over his body and inflammation
of the eyes, ears and feet. It got so bad, he seemed to be
allergic to everything and he was constantly reactive to
almost everything in the world!
Susan’s Goals as a Breeder
My goal as a breeder is to produce top quality dogs that
people can live with, dogs that families can count on, dogs
that can go from the couch to the Best in Show ring at Westminster.
We feed the Dr. Billinghurst Barf frozen diets from BARF
World, to our whole kennel and wean our puppies on it. I
am pleased to have a product so user friendly to provide
my puppy purchasers. “
Susan’s Personal Philosophy
“Knowledge is all. The more knowledge people attain,
the more they will be able to make informed decisions.”
