Dogs Helping to Combat COVID 19

After someone has been in a specific business for almost 50 years, you get exposed to a multitude of challenges and experiences. You meet new people, travel to far distant places, and get involved in situations that can be used for different purposes. Such is the situation I face this morning as I sit at my computer with an idea that is blowing my mind. Let me explain further!

Dogs Helping to Combat COVID 19

After someone has been in a specific business for almost 50 years, you get exposed to a multitude of challenges and experiences. You meet new people, travel to far distant places, and get involved in situations that can be used for different purposes. Such is the situation I face this morning as I sit at my computer with an idea that is blowing my mind. Let me explain further!

I have been called a pioneer in developing the original raw, fresh, frozen dog food business in America. After 44 years I have met some of the world’s most knowledgeable authorities in this arena and as such, have been fortunate to surround myself with some amazing people. One such contact has opened my eyes this morning to an idea that could change the course of the Covid 19 crisis. Of course, it has to be related to my focus on the amazing abilities that a trained dog has over any instrument or human capabilities. I'm referring to the unbelievable, incomparable, scent sensing detection mechanism that a dog can be trained to perform. It is a known fact that a trained dog can sense and detect a bomb in a range of 2500 feet. There is no known detection device as accurate known to man. I have worked for over 40 years with a man that has developed the scent capabilities of Black Labs who has been given the patent rights to the genetic processes used to develop this valuable trait over a 35 year period. 

This morning I was privileged to read about a new experiment for using the scent capabilities that a dog possesses in an effort to detect bombs. The new experiments involve taking the fabric from Covid 19 survivors masks and other gowns and using them to train dogs to be able to detect a person that would test positive for a Covid 19 infection. It is claimed that in a matter of one hour, they can test up to 750 people that may need to be isolated as suspect for infected Covid 19 patients.

The world has been significantly changed in a matter of weeks and it is the ingenuity from scientists, health workers, and trainers that contribute to a possible solution to this invisible virus that has plagued the world. It will be the ability to properly test people that have come in contact with the virus that will lower the curve and give confidence that we are gaining ground towards a full recovery in the near future. Preventing the spread of the virus is the key to the solution.

Raw Food Tip:

Often times, we hear the dog trainers that we work with tell us how the first step in their training program is to improve the nutrition of the animal and replace their nutrient-lacking diet with a natural healthy dog food… one that is biologically appropriate and offers the animal the proper nutrition necessary to stay alert and active in order to be more open to receive the training their owners are paying for.

We are currently looking to buy a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy and the breeder in Virginia recommended your brand of dog food for her pups. Thank you. 😊
