'Jessy is very social with people and affectionate. Furthermore, he is nervous by nature, does not get along with other dogs and has the 'eye' which means that he keeps the focus on something and we can hardly get him out of it. Indoors and in the garden with play area he is great and loves to work. With border collies, it's important to keep them occupied, in addition to the rest they need. For example, if the weather is bad, you can play thinking games with them. Outside we train, we play and Jessy is also the best frisbee catcher of the two. We use the VeggiePet Sweet Potato training balls when training, he loves it! Furthermore, Jessy loves the Vegusto sausage.
At the end of January this year we started switching our border collies Jessy and Sacha to Vegan Dog Food. After ordering several test bags, the Greta chunks to be no. 1 with both. Sometimes I alternate with To me wet food, the Vegusto sausage and regular extra vegetables and fruit that are healthy and suitable for them.
Both had skin problems for years, Jessy worse than Sacha. That often started in April and lasted until October, terribly scratching and biting the fur, creating hotspots. Because we couldn't figure out where it came from, they were both given medication for the itching.
Since we started with Vegan Dog Food, all complaints have disappeared! No more itching, no more hot spots, no more medication needed. Really beyond expectations and we are so happy! Our vet is also fully behind it and would like to follow it, so she wants to do a blood check on both in September, but we expect that it will be very positive. (Update Oct 2021: The blood results are in order.)
Their coats look healthier, and their stools have never been as good and consistent as they have been since they started eating Vegan. And they love it!
We have a subscription which is very nice, and it is delivered perfectly every month. They also love the training sweets and chews, not too much of course, it was a bit of a search in the beginning for the balance because they gained some weight, but are now back to their ideal weight.
We are very happy! And also to be able to contribute to the better welfare of all animals now in our family (the dogs are our children).' – Frans and Merlinde Swiers
