Welcome to The Natural Companion!

Keeping dogs healthy naturally is our goal for our furry companions. We believe our dogs are part of the family and we strive to keep them healthy and happy naturally.

We've learned over the years that "so-called" healthy products may not be the best for our faithful companions health.

​We look forward to sharing what we've learned and learning from you, our readers.

Life would not be the same without our dogs. 

Dogs are the Natural Companion

“No matter how close we are to another person, few human relationships are as free from strife, disagreement, and frustration as is the relationship you have with a good dog. Few human beings give of themselves to another as a dog gives of itself. I also suspect that we cherish dogs because their unblemished souls make us wish - consciously or unconsciously - that we were as innocent as they are, and make us yearn for a place where innocence is universal and where the meanness, the betrayals, and the cruelties of this world are unknown.” - Dean Koontz, A Big Little Life: A Memoir of a Joyful Dog

When Did Dogs Become Companions to Us?

Did man adopt a wolf or did a wolf adopt a man?

That's been a heavily debated topic for many years and is continuing to this day. No one truly knows the answer.

We like to believe that the wolf adopted man by approaching his campsite or settlement first.

Dogs have been companions to man for about 10,000 to 14,000 years, which is one reason why we consider them the natural companions.
