Strata and I compete at the highest level of AKC agility competition and spend many of our weekends traveling to trials across the northeast. Canine SmartPaks make life easier when feeding Strata away from home. Instead of packing baggies of supplements right before a trial, I just keep a couple of Canine SmartPaks in my travel bag. It’s one less thing for me to worry about!

Strata can be a picky eater, but he loves his veggies! LiveSmart Harvest Mix is perfect for him, because I can just rehydrate it with a bit of water at a trial. No chopping, no cooking, no refrigerating necessary. It helps to disguise his supplements, too. Even my other dogs, who scoff at other veggie mixes on the market, enjoy it.

Additionally, Strata is very prone to digestive upset due to the stress of traveling. Our veterinarian suggested probiotics to keep his GI tract in balance, so he gets Digest-All Plus in his dinner every day. I have definitely noticed an improvement and more regularity in that department.

Strata contracted Lyme disease shortly before his competition debut, so he also gets Glyco-Flex III to support strong and healthy joints. He loves the taste of the tablets and frequently picks them out of his food to eat those first! Finally, I add a bit of Deep Sea Salmon Oil to his meals. The omega fatty acids help keep his skin healthy and his coat shiny.

Apparently I've been obsessed with horses since I was born, and I used to beg for pony rides on a regular basis. I started showing in 4-H, progressed to equitation and jumpers in high school and rode on the IHSA team in college where I also discovered the joys...
