We’ve teamed with DogGone Natural to provide us with quality food for the dogs in our rescue. Premium nutrition is critically important to the health of any dog, and this is especially true for dogs who haven’t had the greatest care throughout their lives. To ensure that dogs in AFH’s care receive the best quality nutrition available, DogGone Natural worked with Annamaet Petfoods, Inc. to provide the rescue with one of the best “super premium” foods available – Annamaet Encore. Please take a few minutes to review some information about DogGone Natural and Annamaet, and be sure to stop by the DogGone Natural stores in Ashburn and Leesburg to say “Hi” and let them know that you appreciate their support of the rescue!
We are pleased to align ourselves with Northern Virginia’s leading independent pet store, DogGone Natural, for wellness, proper nutrition and everything related to pets. Under the guidance of owner Kimberly Correnti, her staff of “pet experts” are well versed in a holistic approach to natural healing of the many acute or chronic ailments pets may experience throughout their lifetime.

This is one of the most important topics we’ll ever discuss! Yes, we know that there are many people who are not comfortable crating their dog, but we firmly believe that the crate is one of the most important tools available for managing your dog’s behavior. A big part of many people’s hesitation with crating is the dog’s typical reaction when you first introduce the crate. If it’s not done correctly, the dog will see the crate as a “bad place” rather than the safe place it should be.
In this video, Stacie provides a quick intro to an effective method for “crate training” your dog. If you follow her advice, you will wind up with a dog who is accepting of the crate, and in most cases, enjoys having a place to call their own. Check it out and let us know what you think!
