One day a week to a healthier dog! The ancestors and canine cousins of our dogs didn’t eat “krunchy kibble” or “meat ‘n gravy in a can.” They ate what they found or caught and it wasn’t cooked or “enriched” either! It was high in protein, with balanced fats, and usually included a few fruits, vegetables and grasses. Steve Brown, an expert on canine nutrition, shows how you can bring the
benefits of the canine ancestral diet to your dog by feeding him differently as little as just one day a week. And no, you won’t need to lead a pack of dogs on a hunting expedition! Just follow Steve’s well-researched and easy to follow ABCs to make improvements to whatever your dog currently eats.

What others are saying:
"Brown has done his homework and is able to present his case for feeding a nutrient mix that more closely matches what has been health food for hundreds of generations of canines.
Unlocking the Canine Ancestral Diet
is chock full of information that supports his premise that the ancestral diet is good stuff for today’s dogs. It’s a good read, packed with scientifically backed information, and it presents a practical approach for achieving the goal of helping us to make a healthy diet for our dogs. As easy as ABC."
- Randy Kidd, author of Dr. Kidds Guide to Herbal Dog Care
"I find this book to be enlightening and invaluable. I especially like the fact that his guidelines can help balance canine diets no matter what the caregiver’s level of commitment is to the ancestral diet. Dry food feeders can greatly enhance their pet’s nutrition with just one homemade meal a week. Raw fed dogs can benefit from a balancing meal as well."
- Doug Kneuven, DVM, CVA, CAC, author of The Holistic Guide: Natural Care for the Whole Dog
"To prevent chronic disease in dogs you must get a critical balance of species appropriate foods and fats in your companion’s diet. Steve Brown understands this and you can too by reading his book."
